Cradle of Dreams by Keta Diablo

With visions of battle still fresh in his mind, Roane Bradfield returns home to find the
woman he loves betrothed to another. He corners Kendrick Moreland at Dowager
Huggins’ Grand Ball and whisks her into the secluded library. One way or the other, he
will know the reason the duplicitous beauty cut him from her life when she promised to
wait forever.

Kendrick can’t believe her eyes when Roane suddenly appears at the ball. Has he truly
risen from the dead? Amid wagging tongues and hushed murmurs, the fantasy of her
every dream whisks her from the ballroom. And the expression on his face is anything
but loving. Revenge, danger and powerful love collide in the Cradle of Dreams.

I have debated how to review this book with never reviewing an anthology before so I thought it would be best if I reviewed each story.

I have never read anything by Keta before and let me say she had me from the first page. Loved the characters immediately well for exception of Roane I wasn't too sure of him , I love the bad boy but I thought he was a bit cruel at first but it didn't take long for me to change my mind of him and Wow! the sex scenes were smoking hot.

I both envied Kendrick and felt sorry for her at the same time, Poor thing didn't know what to do or think when Roane suddenly appears again.

She had me on the edge of my seat til the very end and speaking of the end it was so nice and sweet. Will I read more of Keta absolutely , will I recommend? Yes without a doubt.

Til We Meet Again by Stacey Kennedy

Ethan Thomas has spent years alone, forever trapped between worlds. Once a soldier
in the Civil War, he’s now a ghost bound to a chaise lounge that once belonged to him.
He’s spent centuries lingering in Savannah, Georgia, waiting to be saved…

Cassandra Cole is an interior designer hired to restore an old Victorian home. As she
begins to furnish the home, strange happenings erupt around her. She suspects the
house is haunted. Determined to find out, Cassie will set out to discover who the ghost
is, why she feels a connection to him, and what she has to do to free him. The answers
will surprise her in ways she couldn’t have imagined.

Remind me to add a chaise lounge to my long list . Wow is all I can say. Most of you know Stacey is one of new favorite authors' and boy she didn't disappoint me with this story.

Imagine what would you do if you had a chance to be with a ghost? Would you do it ? I am thinking I would if he looked as hot as Ethan especially if you had a chance too-- well I can't say it would be spoiling it but lets just say it surprised me. The steamy scenes were just that and more.

IF you haven't read any of Stacey's work you please do you won't be sorry.

One Rub More by Elise Hepner

Flynn has been cursed for over a century for a social slight he never committed. A
voodoo priestess hexed him and forced him into a teapot where he could only be
summoned by the rub of a woman’s palm. Once free, he grants these women three
sexual favors—and cuts off his own emotions in the process. Unable to break free from
an invisible cage of lust and sex to fall in love again, he’s resigned to being a sex object
and nothing more.

Helena has been house sitting far, far away from her complicated past in England—
including her former childhood sweetheart, who wasn’t satisfied when Helena didn’t want
to be barefoot and pregnant. She’s resigned to leave behind the complications of men
and sex. She hopes that logic will win out over her unreliable emotions—but she’s put to
the test when she accidentally summons Flynn from his teapot prison.

Can I just say I will never drink tea again without thinking of this story. Can I find a teapot like this ? I loved this story a different take on the genie in the bottle in this case a teapot.

This is another new author to me and I am glad I have a chance to read her novella in this anthology. And I will be surely looking at her other works. Would I recommend? Yes

A Love Soul Deep by Amber Scott

If only Sara had known no man would ever make her feel like Crew did, she
would have let him love her. A regret that can never be undone. His death haunts
her dreams and her wishful thinking only reminds her of everything she has lost.

Years later, a visit to an antique store in sultry Savannah changes everything
and makes her deepest wish come true. Her beloved returns to her. Her every
fantasy gets the chance to be fulfilled. But she wants more than one night. She
wants a lifetime and wonders what magic will let her keep A Love Soul Deep.

I will admit this story had me in tears, what person wouldn't want another chance with someone they loved and lost. You just wanted it to someway to work out for Sara.

This story was a mixture of heartbreak and heated moments and the ending will surprise you I know it did me in not ways you might suspect. Read it and see what I am talking about.

I so wanted there be a way for it to work out but it still left me with a smile. I have read two stories by Amber and she is quickly becoming a favorite author. Would I recommend ? If you haven't read any of Amber's book I would yes highly recommend her.

Overall Review:
Anthologies and I have a love hate relationship and I must say this one rates in the love catergory not one story did I find I didn't like. If fact I needed to stop to cool off for a few moments thats how steamy some scenes were. Would I recommend this book ? A resounding yes! Your hubby/boyfriend might thank you later when you do.

Meanwhile I am booking a flight to Georgia and find me some antique stores, that have a painting ,locket, teapot and chaise lounge.
