dare you to read a 'Kurland' story and not enjoy it. (Heartland Critiques)
Welcome to a world of chivalry, danger, legends, and love. These four original novellas bring to life all the romance and adventure of the Middle Ages, with the common thread of a rich medieval tapestry woven through each tale.
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.
