""Dream Lover" takes the reader through some of the most interesting erotic fantasy fiction around."
--Sandra Scholes for "Love Romance Passion"
"An imaginative collection of short and arousing tales involving a breadth of paranormal characters. Nice plot twists involving Lucy Feltouse's bored succubus or Kate Pearce's man of one's dreams locked in a tower give variety to the tales which feature a mixture of familiar and new authors who show their dexterity at creating hot scenes between unusual characters in all too brief tales."

"This is a huge collection of very short but very steamy and romantic love stories with a paranormal twist. I was going to highlight my favorites, but the list was too long! There isn't a story in here that I wouldn't give at least 4 howls to, but almost all of them really deserve 5. They all succeeded on some level whether it was the unique storyline, the interesting characters, the ability to draw out strong emotions so quickly, or the flow of the words. I found some of the stories so amazingly unique, and I can't help but wonder how these authors come up with these ideas. It was just very impressive. Although each story was unique, they all fit together wonderfully in this anthology. The foreword by Megan Hart was very sensual and was a brilliant start to this collection.

"From mermaids to succubi to vampires, the "Dream Lover" anthology has it all. Stuffed full of authors both new and familiar to me, I found something to satisfy every mood I might have, as well as every mystical creature I've ever thought about imagining. I loved how the stories all had a similar thread running through them, but were all different enough to stand out on their own. Each will grab your attention and draw you into its own world for a moment or two before returning you home again. If you're a lover of the exotic, erotic, and extraordinary, then this is by far the anthology for you."

"The erotic tales in "Dream Lover" differ in setting and character, but all are well written and passionate. There is a choice of paranormal seduction for every reader. All are original and entertaining.
Highlights of this 17-story anthology include Justine Elyot's "Love Resurrection," where an academic is seduced by the ghost of her favorite poet. A fairy comes for a sugar rush from a pretty baker in Shanna German's "Devil's Food." In "Shattered Belle," Craig Sorensen proves that even ghosts get a second chance at love.
In Alana Noel Voth's "Moongirl Meets the Wolfman," a shapeshifter finally finds his perfect mate. A Fae must defeat the demon with whom he made a bargain in order to stay with his lover in Ericka Hiatt's "The Eye of Pearl." A woman finds her dream lover and learns about her own desires in Kristina Wright's "Thief of Dreams."

5.0 out of 5 stars Stories that will haunt you . . . in a good way 18 Nov. 2013
By Terrance Aldon Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What these seventeen surprisingly diverse stories all have in common is atmosphere--and that in luxurious groaning-board abundance. It's the kind of rich, erotically charged ambiance that stays with a reader long after the book has been closed or the electronic device turned off, and, like the memory of the tastes and aromas of a great meal, lingers pleasantly in the imagination, waiting to be called up (or re-read) again and again. Editor Kristina Wright has accomplished something quite remarkable, in recruiting so conspicuously gifted a group of writers, producing an anthology that is not only immediately entertaining and satisfyingly sexy at every turn, but a collection of true and lasting literary merit.

And what a profuse, colorful patchwork of mood and voice! From Shanna Germain's masterful "Devil's Food" with its comically-tinged tale of sugar-jonesing fairies and wise-cracking frogs, to Delilah Devlin's feverishly wet-bodied reimagining of "The Little Mermaid" ("Dreaming by the Sea"), to Justine Elyot's "Love Resurrection" in which a young woman seeks out the ghost of a Byron-esque poet in the house he continues to haunt.

No less impressive or erotically irresistible, in spite of their more seemingly ordinary characters and settings, are the stories by A.D.R. Forte ("Rainmaker") in which a young woman must reluctantly return to her childhood home and seek out an old lover in order to fulfill her quasi-divine destiny, and Craig J. Sorensen's tale of two lonely souls (one living, one not-quite-departed) encountering each other in a genuine ghost town ("Shattered Belle"). The haunted house mythos gets its due as well. In "Living Off Lovers", Kristina Lloyd skillfully delves the many possible meanings of her title with a story set in a decrepit `30s-era apartment building, where two current tenants find themselves under the spell of a pair of ghostly star-crossed lovers, and the dark secrets that lie hidden behind the building's decaying Art Deco facades. And Kate Pearce's "Folly" draws us along with her heroine to a crumbling, castle-like mansion, to discover the beautiful soul of a lover trapped within its ancient stones.

The thrill of sensual discovery virtually leaps from the page in Victoria Jannsen's "Vanilla" (a sci-fi inflected narrative of a steamy and unusually sweet encounter between two empaths) and Lana Fox's "For Humans, Love's All About Weight", a deliciously imagined tale of an unexpected bequest and a wild air-born fling. A bit more melancholy and bittersweet, if no less lubricious, is Madeline Moore's "Lust as Old as Us", about a woman's life-long affair with a vampire who cannot grow old, but refuses to grow up. And in Kristina Wright's own contribution, "Thief of Dreams", insomnia threatens a woman's relationship with an angelic, albeit fallen, lover. The collection offers a nod to High Fantasy as well. When a demon comes to collect her elfin lover's soul, a woman must take drastic action to protect him and keep him for herself in Erika Hiatt's "The Eye of Pearl".

My personal favorite of the whole lot is probably Saachi Green's "Freeing the Demon", a marvelously conceived piece of storytelling, in which a beautiful young working girl discovers the presence of an insatiable demonic entity imprisoned within one of the gargoyles ornamenting her apartment building.

Ravishing, sometimes extravagantly imaginative, the stories in "Dream Lover" will haunt the reader in the most welcome of ways.

Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting 11 May 2012
By Patra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This wasn't what I was expecting. I thought it was just 2 or 3 stories but its more like 15 or more. I think they need to put that in the synopis. I wish some of the stories were longer. It was still an OK read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 17 May 2013
By Cherise Everhard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is an anthology of 17 Paranormal Erotic Tales.

This book was absolutely excellent, one of my favorite anthologies, ever. I am only sorry that it took me so long to finally read and review it. Out of the 17 tales I can't think of one that I didn't like or wasn't impressed with. Sure, I liked some more than others, but all of them were exceptionally well written and deliciously sexy.

Each story is very short, but I was really impressed by the level of detail and sensuality that each author was able to convey in so few words. I was also surprised, delightfully so, at some of the romance felt throughout. Sometimes stories so short have to sacrifice a few things... Usually writers keep the sex and have a harder time expressing the romance of the story. Some of these stories were incredibly romantic, and still managed to have plenty of sex.

This is a group of stories I would happily recommend to my friends who like a steamy paranormal read. There is something for everyone.

Cherise Everhard, May 2013
4.0 out of 5 stars Shape-shifters, Sexy Spirits, and Mer-men. Oh, my! 7 May 2014
By MoxieBee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Everybody has erotic dreams, right? For many of us those dreams are best enjoyed when a healthy dose of romance is stirred into the mix. Romantic erotic fantasy helps us get through the mundane realities of day-to-day life and sometimes inspires us to spark up the everyday in surprising ways. No harm, no foul. But what if you woke to find your fantasy lover beside you in the all-too real flesh? Would you feel insane? Ecstatic? Afraid?

Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance presents 17 short stories that blend romantic erotica with a touch of the otherworldly. In its 242 pages women find themselves confronting bewildering scenarios that offer them their deepest dreamy desires in wholly unexpected settings.

Among my favorites is Delilah Devlin's "Dreaming By The Sea" in which our heroine discovers a sexy salt-scented stranger emerging nude from the sea. Is he just another laid-back Californian enjoying an ocean swim au natural, or can he be the
Mer-man of her mythic dreams braving dry land to claim her?

Another winner is series editor Kristina Wright's "Thief of Dreams", a mesmerizing blend of the sensual, the supernatural, and the spiritual spotlighting the actual wings of desire summoned by a heavenly lover's earthy counterpart.

Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance's 242 pages of mystically charged romantic erotica includes a foreword by Megan Hart and editor/author Kristina Wright's introduction. Those already enamored of erotic romance will enjoy the addition of the paranormal/sci-fi world; aficionados of sci-fi/fantasy open to romantic erotica will be doubly rewarded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Supernatural Lovers 30 Jun. 2011
By Sammi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance for free, in exchange for writing an unbiased review. I was excited to get this one, as I like supernatural and horror stories - and having a bit of erotica mixed in with these elements seemed like a great combination.

This is a nice collection of romantic and somewhat erotic stories. They lean more towards romantic dalliances, but they all have an erotic edge that makes the couplings more exciting. These 242 pages contain 17 stories, a forward by Megan Hart, introduction by Kristina Wright, and short about the authors and editor sections in the back.

In the forward, Megan delves into what fantasies means and covers the different contexts. She talks about how fantasies often involve something more dark and mysterious than what we might encounter in real life. Kristina carries this further in her introduction, when she ponders who your dream lover could be and reveals a somewhat surprising choice of her own - and one I completely understand as it used to be one of my choices as well.

The stories in this collection run the gamut : a ghost resurrected by a yearning woman, a woman seduced by a man from the sea, a human baker and her larger-than-fairy visitor, a woman and man who can make rain, female ghosts who seduce men, ghostly lovers who want to reconnect through their modern-day counterparts, werewolves, wolfmen, gargoyles, witches, telepaths, birdmen, succubi, bewitched men and vampires, demons and angels, all find their way into the lives of characters living in this collection.

All of the stories here are well written: how erotic they are will depend on how well you like the couplings (e.g., if you're really into ghosts, "Love Resurrection" by Justine Elyot and "Living off Lovers" by Kristina Lloyd may be your stories of choice, while if you're more into witches "Old-Fashioned Glamour" by Nikki Magennis may be more your style.

While I enjoyed most of the stories in these pages (I love horror and supernatural elements in stories, regardless of genre), these two were my favorites:

"Freeing the Demon" by Sacchi Green - the gargoyle stands guard outside her window, until one night her pimp causes it to do more than guard. Can Jayne's demon break free from the stone and come to love her as a flesh and blood being?

"Thief of Dreams" by Kristina Wright - is she dreaming or is she awake when she sees and talks to the handsome angel she often finds sitting on the edge of her bed? After a bout of insomnia, Michelle learns who her mysterious nighttime visitor is who walks through her dreams and tastes her soul.

Overall, this is a fun collection to sink your teeth into before bedtime and inspire whatever dreams you may have when you finally drift off to sleep.
