Lover's Locket was the only story in this whole book I enjoyed. ( )

HarperCollins Avon Red has created an anthology of stories guaranteed to warm even the coldest winter night!

Wow! Individually, each of the stories in the anthology Alluring Tales – Awaken the Fantasy more than sizzle, but united in one hot little book, they are downright combustible! The title promises alluring tales, and it definitely delivers!

With some anthologies, you find several stories you like or love, and maybe a story or two that aren’t quite up to par. It would be hard to find anyone who could say this about Alluring Tales – Awaken the Fantasy! Each story is just as good as the last one. I personally would be hard pressed to choose a favorite between them, and am very grateful I don’t have to!

~ Lover's Locket by Cathryn Fox ~

When an old gypsy presses Caira to accept a mysterious locket, Caira finds love, and risks losing her soul to save his!

This is the first story I’ve ever read by Cathryn Fox, and I find myself compelled to look for more of her work after reading it. Lover’s Locket is a surprisingly complex story of ancient curses, forbidden love, and reincarnation. I use the word complex due to its brevity. Fox has woven an intricate history for her leading lady in this story, proving her skill with the short story format.

~ Kili's Ice Man by Delilah Devlin ~

In a futuristic world, Kili attempts to ease her lust for her celebrity crush, the Ice Man, over her lunch hour with one quick virtual reality session in order to calm her nerves before a business meeting with him that very afternoon. But her VR fantasy man seems all too real…

I confess to a love of Science Fiction and I am always intrigued by Virtual Reality themes. I wasn’t disappointed with Devlin’s addition to this anthology! Kili programs her Virtual Reality session with what she believes is her dream man, but all bets are off when the Ice Man himself gets wind of her plan! Gunnar proves to be a remarkably sensitive he-man type, taking both Kili and the reader by surprise!

~ The Hottest One Night Stand by Lisa Renee Jones ~

One stormy night and a broken down car bring Jessica the opportunity to find her sexuality with a sexy and compelling stranger. But he soon proves to be something very different from what he seems…

I wanted to read this anthology because of Lisa Renee Jones contribution to it, having thoroughly enjoyed other stories written by her. Even had I not enjoyed any of the other stories in this anthology, Jones’ story would still have made this a worthwhile read! She reaches into every woman’s fantasy of an anonymous encounter with a dangerous man, and then turns the tables on both the leading lady and the readers when he turns out to be so much more!

~ Out of the Shadows by Myla Jackson ~

What will a Vampire Hunter do when the woman he loves becomes the very thing he hates above all else?

From the very start, Jackson fosters empathy for her hero, with the reader sharing his confusion and frustration for the woman he loves. When we are finally allowed insight as to her reasons for turning TJ away, our heart breaks for both of them.

~ A Familiar Kind of Magic by Sylvia Day ~

Who will really be tamed when a powerful Warlock, Max, tries to collar the rogue Familiar, Victoria?

With A Familiar Kind of Magic, Day proves a woman can find strength and power in letting go. Max proves himself as a gentle and sly Dominant when he sets out to tame Victoria, simultaneously empowering her and allowing her to unleash the needs she has subjugated for years.

~ Tempting Grace by Sasha White ~

Ex-stripper turned Probation Officer Grace isn’t looking for love, and especially not with the minister’s son, Lukas. But Lukas proves persistent, and persistence has a way of paying off…

Sasha White is also a new author for me, and I will recommend her without reservation to anyone interested in this genre! She has included a wonderful contemporary tale that proves love isn’t always where we expect it to be, nor in the form we anticipated.

~ Quick Silver by Vivi Anna ~

Sangria knows this delivery is trouble waiting to happen - a suspicion more than confirmed when an ambush gives her a good look at the merchandise she is transporting!

I’m not quite certain just how Vivi Anna included so much plot in so few words, but she did – and did it well! Sangria’s tale is one of loneliness and hardship, but she finds a way out in the most unlikely of places…
