Paranormal erotic lovestories
It is hard to describe this book since the back cover pretty much says it all. You will go on many journeys, escaping to witness various paranormal erotic lovestories. Love is consistent theme throughout the tales. In some of the stories, you watch misfits of this world find their perfect mate in beings from the other worlds. Some of the stories are dark such as the story of "Freeing the Demon" where a prostitute seeks to release a gargoyle trapped in stone. You get to discover authors that are not mainstream that make you want to seek more of their literay offerings. The stories are short; but, some have a long lasting impact. There are stories that you keep thinking about long after you have finished the tale. Definitely great as adult fairytales / bedtime stories.
Love Resurrection: is a ghost story about a woman in love with a deceased erotica author who dabbled in black magic.
Dreaming by Sea: is a mermaid lovestory about a woman who reinvents herself after escaping her past to have her past love return for her.
Devil's Food: is fairy tale about love at first sight.
Rainmaker: is about our greater connection to the world. Can your drought cause a drought? What we put out is what we receive.
Shattered Belle: is an erotic ghost story about releasing spirits.
Living off Lovers: is wild ride into the imagination of this author. Tenants are used to reunite a couple who met tragic ends.
It's a definite brainteaser. I'm still trying to analyze this one.
Where the Heart is: is a layered beauty and the beast tale that transcends time demonstrating the power of love.
Old Fashioned Glamour: is about the magic of high school reunions and returning to pure love.
Moongirl meets the Wolfman: is about a journey lost shifters who find home and completion.
For Humans, Love's all about Weight: is a fantasy tale about a birdman trapped in a cage who frees a woman who locked away her heart in a shield of distrust.
Succubus Comes Home: is a look at what can happen when opposite sex best friends cross the line.
Lust as old as us: is a vampire lovestory. This is definitely one of my favorite tales (swoon).
The Eye of Pearl: is a story about the battle to keep true love.
Thief of Dreams: this is the only tale that explored non-vanilla sex; an angelic tale that teaches the heavenly benefits to releasing true desires.

Fans of romance have keeper shelves filled with books that just blow us away. We know we are going to read and reread until the spine gives and the book falls apart in our hands. This book definitely goes on my keeper shelf. Dream Lover has a magical quality, the vivid imaginations of its authors make you live, breathe and feel every word, and the stories arouse equal parts fear and sex. It's not just another book of overdone werewolves and vampires (although it has those, too). I saw gargoyles and witches, mermen and demons, a man that's a bird and a ghost that means business. Wish I could give Dream Lover more than five stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

TITLE IS A MISNOMER
First, let me say that is am very bias when it comes to short stories. I really do not like them unless they are erotica. When I saw the title, I thought this book would be great; several short stories of erotica. I looked at the authors and contributors and only saw a couple of recognizable names. Another good sign because a lot of name authors write the kind of erotica I like in a pseudonym. This book was not that bad, but I was very disappointed because I was expecting erotica. This book is romance stories of true love that are 15 to 20 pages in length. In romance, the hero and heroine get their cloths off in two, three, and sometimes four pages. In erotica, the hero and heroine are naked in two paragraphs, tops. The book is full of your paranormal favorites of incubi & succubi, weres, fairies, ghost, and weather witches. Eighty percent of the sex in the book is vanilla. If you want a lot romance in your erotica, this is the book for you. If your want porn in your erotica, this is not the book for you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

What's your darkest desire? Your most secret fantasy lover? A vampire? A ghost? Or something more? Whatever it is that lurks deep within your heart, you're sure to find it within the pages of Dark Lover, an anthology of fun and exciting, as well as seriously sexy stories of the paranormal kind.Was this review helpful?

Love Resurrection by Justine Elyot leads off the series with a charming yet steamy ghost story. Freya is bound and determined to get long-dead poet Lucien Mountfichet's name known to the world at large. What she doesn't realize is just how that's about to happen. This is one of the more creative ghost stories I've read, with an unexpected sort of happy ending.
Dreaming by the Sea by Delilah Devlin is a refreshing twist on the mermaid theme. Fraught with emotional tension and erotic love scenes, Ms. Devlin manages to develop two unique characters in just a few pages, ensuring that you'll devour this short story in one sitting.
Devil's Food by Shanna Germain is a lighthearted and yet sexy romp in a bakery that goes by the name of Devil's Food. When pastry chef Lire meets Fey hunk Thadeus, more than just sparks fly. Due to the fun nature of this story, all the sugar, and the hot love between the two, Devil's Food was one of my favorite stories in this collection. Sure to put a smile on anyone's face.
Rainmaker by A. D. R. Forte was a fascinating story that reminds me of a spiced up version of an old wives' tale or myth from the past. Faith is full of repressed magic, and if she's to bring relief to the parched, dry land around her, she's going to have to step outside her comfort zone to release it. David is there to help her do just that, like it or not.
Shattered Belle by Craig J. Sorensen had me a bit confused at the beginning, however, it all comes together with quite a bang at the end. Belle is bound and determined to ensure the sanctity of her precious church while the stranger is set on only completing his task. By the end, you'll find yourself nodding and saying, "Ahh, yes, I thought so!" and squealing with glee. A wonderfully woven story that will have you sighing with pleasure and constantly second-guessing yourself.
Living off Lovers by Kristina Lloyd is one of the more intense stories in this anthology. Desperate to reunite two long-lost lovers, Rachel and Merrick must come together in a very intimate way. Driven in a way neither understands, they find one another and simply explode with passion. Sexy, sultry, and amazing, all wrapped into one short story.
Where the Heart Is by Saskia Walker is chock-full of paranormal elements to both tease and entice the reader. Rhiannon is nothing close to what she appears and Edgar is so much more. About halfway through this one, I thought I'd missed the boat on what was happening. However, just before the end it all comes together beautifully, giving you more than just a little satisfaction.
Freeing the Demon by Sacchi Green is my kind of story! I love nothing better than when a battered or otherwise abused woman gets her revenge on the man who has done her wrong. Jayne gets her revenge and so much more. When she discovers a trapped demon in the gargoyle outside her building, her fate is changed forever and for the better. This was a very refreshing twist on revenge, and I enjoyed it tremendously.
