Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The patchwork Tapestry features stories from four mavens of medieval-era romances-Lynn Kurland, Madeline Hunter, Karen Marie Moning and Sherrilyn Kenyon. Moning's hilarious tale ("Into the Dreaming") of a contemporary writer who lands in the 15th century and falls in love with a Scotsman is the highlight of the collection, and Kurland's "To Kiss in the Shadows," a romance between a blemished beauty and a dark arts master, provides plenty of lighthearted fun as well. Kenyon's bizarre offering ("Dragonswan"), however, takes readers on a fanciful journey to a time when sexy superhumans fought against beings possessing animal hearts. Hints of the supernatural are threaded throughout these three entries, which makes "An Interrupted Tapestry," Hunter's conventional romance between a German merchant and an English noblewoman, seem strangely out of place. Still, this enchanting, if mismatched, collection is a fitting introduction to the authors' works.

    Excellent!

    Four bestselling authors combine their talents to create a mixed anthology that will surely have something for everyone.<BR><BR> TO KISS THE SHADOWS is Lynn Kurland's entry into the collection. Lianna has spent her life in hiding, her lovely face still bears scars from when her family was killed, making her a ward of the king. She is made even more an outcast when her lovely spirit draws the attentions of two brothers, one the most eligible knight in the realm, the other, more handsome brother, a suspected warlock. Madeline Hunter tells a more conventional tale in AN INTERRUPTED TAPESTRY wherein a young woman attempts to pay off her brother's debts by selling a tapestry, not realizing that she is about to encounter true love. Sherilyn Kenyon takes a fantastic turn in DRAGONSWAN, a most unusual tale of a lycanthrope time traveler who finds his true mate in a woman of our time. The only problems are that he can not live in this time period, he is outcast from his people, and his enemies are hunting him, and now his true love, who is not happy to be stuck several centuries in the past, away from the comforts of home, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes. Finally, Karen Marie Monig ties up the collection with INTO THE DREAMING, a tale reminescent of the legend of Tam Lin. A young woman of this century is taken back in time to meet the man she was meant to love; however, he is under the spell of the Unseelie King, and only she can release him. However, she has only a month, or he will be lost forever. <BR><BR> ***** Each story is unique and lives up to the rest of the author's work. It also gives fans who might buy the anthology for one favored writer to get a taste of how good the other three are. Though all entrires are stand alone, Ms. Kurland gives hope of a sequel to tell the other brother's story. ***** </p><BR> Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.

    entertaining romantic anthology

    ¿To Kiss in the Shadows¿ by Lynn Kurland. The women fear the arrival of Jason of Artane. However, one Lianna of Grasleigh hides in the shadows of her tapestry yet somehow Jason finds his heart¿s quest if he can make her see what he sees. <P>¿An Interrupted Tapestry¿ by Madeline Hunter. Desperate to make remittance on her brother¿s debt, Gisele tries to sell her best tapestry to old friend Hanseatic League trader Andreas. However, though not good for trade, Andreas and Gisele fall in lieben. <P>¿Dragonswan¿ by Sherrilyn Kenyon. In Richmond, scholar Dr. Channon 'Shannon with a C' MacRae ponders the olde English words on the dragon tapestry when Sebastian Kattalakis disturbs her by muttering something about dragons, crunching and ketchup. He must persuade his beloved that not only does she belong to him, but also he will open the history of the world to her. <P>¿Into the Dreaming¿ by Karen Marie Moning. In Indiana, Jane Sillee dreams of the Highlander and now owns a medieval tapestry that she has no idea who or why it was sent to her. She looks deeply at it when suddenly she is transported back to 928 Scotland where she meets her Highlander, Aedon MacKinnon. She has to break the evil spell that engulfs the man she has loved since she first dreamed of him. <P>Though each tale is different except for the theme of a tapestry involved in the plot, fans will enjoy these stories due to wonderful lead characters. The contributors have done great jobs entertaining the romance reading troops. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Don't judge a book by its cover

    If you love time travel and going back where chivalry still existed, this is the book for you. Plots are original and engaging. The stories are funny, heartfelt and live in a fantasy where you can live the stories you read.

    Karen Marie Moning - Never disappointing

    I bought this book specifically for the Karen Marie Moning story, who is one of my favorite authors. If you like her Highlander series, you will also like this story. Sorry to say, the other stories I have yet to read, so I can't comment on them.

    Tapestry was a good escapist read

    I purchased this book because I am a fan of Karen Marie Moning and her novella was the best of the three. All three involved a tapestry but the stories were not related otherwise. The Lynn Kurland novella was also enjoyable. If you enjoy historical romances this is a good read.

    Very Exciting Stories

    The themes of these stories were very exciting - with time travel and other intriguing backgrounds for the romantic tales. The stories were nicely written, with enough romance thrown in to satisfy the romantic reader. The stories were tastefully written, and although a few were a tad tame, they were overall a very exciting read that is well worth five stars.
