Friday, February 4th, 2011 • 1 Comment on First Review of Dream Lover
Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance isn’t due out until May 1, but the advance reviews are starting to come in. Erin O’Riordan had this to say:
Dream Lover (Cleis Press, May 2011), edited by Kristina Wright, is a collection of diverse, elegantly erotic tales of paranormal romance. It’s my favorite genre, I can’t get enough, and this collection is an especially sweet one. Its arrival on my doorstep made a perfect pre-Valentine’s Day gift.
The anthology begins with “Love Resurrection” by Justine Elyot. In it, the ghost of a long-neglected Victorian poet haunts the academic who comes to his ancestral home to research him. The tale is perfectly imagined. A. D. R. Forte’s “Rainmaker” is another well-crafted tale, so vividly so sensual it feels like the air before a thunderstorm. Kristina Lloyd contributes “Living Off Lovers,” an atmospheric piece in which an apartment building becomes a character and a woman lusts for a man about whom she knows only a name, “Peter.” Sacchi Green’s “Freeing the Demon” is a startlingly beautiful gargoyle story.
Given my personal preference for wolf tales, it may come as no surprise my personal favorite in this collection is Alana Noel Voth’s “Moongirl Meets the Wolf Man.” It’s always wonderful when a lone wolf meets her one true mate. The vampire tale, “Lust as Old as Us” by Madeline Moore, puts a fascinating twist on the teenage vampire genre.
How lovely! I’m swooning over the phrase “elegantly erotic tales of paranormal romance.” Feel like I should be wearing elbow-length gloves and pearls! Oh! And Erin is running a contest through February 12 to win either her advance review copy of Dream Lover or another book of your choice! Stop by her blog and enter to win!
