a) Lynn Kurland's "To kiss in the shadows" is by far the most entertaining of them all. The story was fast paced, interesting, and fun to read. I caught myself laughing very often! Initially I wasn't sure I liked the heroine's physical problem, but fortunately it wasn't overdone. I don't like it when romance authors take their stories too seriously (like Feehan's pompous style, for example). Given the limitations of a short story, this was quite well developed overall.
b) M.Hunter's "An Interrupted Tapestry" was good, but could have been better. Left me with rather mixed feelings. I liked Andreas very much, but I feel he was underdeveloped. Now, he was supposed to be aloof as a character, that is true, but still... Giselle didn't seem any interesting to me. Overall, a rather pleasant story.
c) I was really looking forward to reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's story, because I've read so many of her Dark Hunter stories, but I was very disappointed. The story starts interestingly (loved the dragon comment!), but then the story evolved to the typical plain-fat-girl-attracts-gorgeous-man-can't-believe-her-luck thing, which I seriously find annoying. Can't there for once the heroine be a good looking and self-confident woman who is accustomed to attracting her fair share of men? Do all women have such low self-image? I don't know... The Greek language could have been handled more carefully. Historians would probably have something to say about her portrayal of castle life, but this is fiction after all. To summarize: very mediocre.Read more ›
Madeline Hunter's story about old friends meeting again when she'spoverty-stricken and he's wealthy and about to marry someone else is avery nice piece. Giselle pleads with Andreas to loan her some money, buthe won't because her brother already owes him far more money than he couldever repay. But there is one thing Giselle owns which Andreas would paylarge amounts for... her virtue.
Sherrilyn Kenyon's short story belongs with her Dark-Hunter series, and isher first were-creature story. Unlike the Katagaria in her books,Sebastian is part-human, part-dragon. He has travelled into the future to'borrow' the tapestry which Channon is studying; in order to get it fromher, he sweet-talks her and takes her to dinner. But he has reckonedwithout the Arcadian gods, who make her his mate for life... Now what canhe do?
The weakest by far in this collection is Karen Marie Morning's Scottishstory. Come on, publishers - romances with Scottish Highland charactersare just *boring*, apart from having been done to death! This one isunconvincing, and the narrative rivals the heroine's novel for purpleprose.Read more ›
Kurland's story was ridiculous, the hero or heroes? were two annoying brothers and one weak female, who loves to hide in the shadows... Where's the fun in that I ask you? It was quite boring I have to say, and I found myself skipping the pages in an effort to find something to capture my interest. Sadly, I found none. Although my friends have reccomended some of her other books, I will pick them up, albeit VERY reluctantly.
Hunter's book... well, I couldn't get past the first page, maybe I should have tried harder, but it was dull. I feel horrible for trashing the first half of this novella, but it had to be done.
Now, Kenyon's 'Dragonswan' was a charming story, a tortured hero (the best kind :P) and a heroine with spark, perfect for those who had never read her Dark Hunter books and a great treat for those who have. Sebastian and Shannon with a C are a great couple and I for one, love the fantasy, the myths and the romance Kenyon weaves with such vivid imagination and skill.
Moning's offering 'Into the Dreaming' had everything I adore in a book. The book is combined with love, lust, fantasy, mythology (which is very well researched, always a pleasure to read historicals with fab background), and of course the brilliant hero and heroine. Aedan and Jane are lovely who have Aedan's past to overcome, which is a spectacular but gruesome past and very inventive and creative by the talented Moning.Read more ›
