Allow yourself to be swept back and forth through time as four marvelous writers weave lush and rich medieval tales.

"Kiss in the Shadows" showcases Lynn Kurland's ability to write with warmth and wit as Jason of Artane finds himself captivated by Lianna, a woman who lives in the shadows. It takes a man who looks beyond the surface to see the beauty in this remarkable lady.

In Madeline Hunter's "An Interrupted Tapestry," Giselle tries to settle her brother's debt by selling their friend Andreas her prized tapestry—but Andreas wants much more. Woven with golden threads of love and silver threads of history, this is a tale as intricate as the tapestry itself.

"Dragonswan" opens as a present-day scholar deciphers the meaning hidden in an ancient tapestry. Suddenly, a strange man appears, and she is whisked off to the middle ages as his mate. You'll be mesmerized by this magical tale from Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Karen Marie Moning takes us through time as a tapestry transports Jane to medieval Scotland, where she must find a way to break an evil spell in "Into The Dreaming." Ms. Moning's delightful sense of humor shines in this passionate tale.

After reading these unforgettable tales you'll never look at a tapestry without wishing one of these stories would come true. SENSUAL (Sep., 368 pp., $7.99)

Into the Dreaming

Submitted by Robin in PA on December 26, 2011 - 6:33pm.

I bought this book just to read Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning. Aspiring writer Jane Sillee lost her inspiration when her vivid dreams of a highlander stopped. When she wakes up on a grassy bank to find her highlander is at the castle nearby, Jane believes she is dreaming. She soon finds she has traveled back in time to 1428, and her Highlander, Aedan MacKinnon, doesn't remember her. Actually, he doesn't remember anything, including the fact that he is a human. Aedan was imprisoned by the Unseelie King for 500 years. His only contact with humans was his dreams of Jane. Now those are gone too.

Usually I'm not crazy about short stories but this one is very good. I always love a tortured hero and Aedan MacKinnon fits the bill. My rating: 4 Stars.
