"5 Stars! ... This is an excellent little story which freely suspends belief and had this reader turning the pages as fast as possible to learn what would happen next! I highly recommend it and will be watching out for this author in the future!"--EuroReviews
"3 Stars! ... A charming story of fate having its own say, whether you believe in it or not."--Stacey Landers, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"...Refreshingly well researched and written. While many e-books, novellas in particular, tend toward the sloppy and inelegant, Cup of Fate has a natural flow. The work could easily have been extended to create a full-length novel, but the condensed version is neither rushed nor shallow."--Ellie McBride, Romance News
"5 Kisses! ... If you are interested in paranormal fantasy or Celtic mythology, you won't want to miss Cup of Fate. A fantastic read!"--Barbara Gisondi, Romance Divas
"...A fun, quick read."--Amelia, Joyfully Reviewed
"You're dreaming again. All's well. Breath slow and deep." The voice was smooth as melted chocolate and reassuring.
The farmhouse faded and a new dream took its place.
The gentle scrape of an unshaven face on her shoulder finished the transition. But it was the warm male lips kissing the nape of her neck that made it seem all too real. A pair of strong arms snaked around her midriff and pulled her back against a taut, muscular chest.
It seemed so long since anyone had held her close and offered comfort. Bryn gave herself up to this new dream and snuggled, loving the warmth of his body. That didn't make sense. How could a dream lover give off heat? She decided not to examine it closer, just simply enjoy it while it lasted.
The wet lap of a tongue licked her earlobe. She squirmed in his arms.
"Does that tickle?" he asked, whispering against the curve of her jaw.
"Yes ... ahh," she murmured as his lips kissed her throat and his hands began to wander. She gasped when his fingers tugged at her nipples, rolling them between thumb and forefinger.
She closed her eyes, savoring all the sensations he was causing throughout her body. She felt his hand slide down her hip to her thigh. He grasped the hem of her silky nightgown and slowly pulled it up until it bunched above her waist. He placed hot kisses on her hipbone and all along her thigh, before moving her so she lay on her back.
