This short story was previously published in the Tapestry
anthology and precedes the first full-length Dark Hunter novel, Night Pleasures
. Book Description
Beautiful scholar Channon MacRea has spent years studying the legendary Dragon Tapestry, devoting days and nights to deciphering the impenetrable Old English symbolism. Then one evening the unnaturally handsome Sebastian appears. He claims to hold the key to solving the tapestry's mysteries. Bearing magnificently taut and tanned flesh marked by intriguing scars of battle, he also claims to be a dragon slayer trapped between two worlds.
For Channon there's only one way to finally uncover the secrets of the intricate embroidery—by following the seductive stranger into a fantastic alternate world of magic, danger, and erotic adventure.
This was a pretty good read. I was afraid I wouldn't like it at first because the beginning started out kind of sappy: Channon kept insisting, "I never do this kind of thing", when she brought Sebastian home that night after just meeting him. Then she went on and on about how gorgeous he was for like 3 pages... alright, I get it already, the dude's a hunk! Fortunately, the whole story didn't continue in this vein and after they returned to Sebastian's "home", the action picked up. For a short 86 page story, there was a good amount of intrigue, history, and action. Though I'd classify it primarily as a romance of course, there was enough other stuff to it that it gets a thumbs up from me! :)
This will be heading off to SandDanz shortly as part of the Paranormal Virutal Bookbox.
