"Sexy, raw and uncut!"
I've never been one to read anthologies, but I decided to
give this one a try. From 17 different authors and the many
different styles and stories, this book was actually pretty
With stories of male on male relationships, broken hearts
and happily ever afters, this book will keep you going til
the last page. Tales were sometimes spooky for example
in the story 'Watching You' by Gemma Halliday - the novella
read like a journal, with the main character writing down
times and habits of the woman that he was watching. That
would be scary to have someone keeping tabs on you and what
you do. But it ended very differently from what I originally
thought was going on.
If you love erotic and romantic tales that will pull at your
heart, then I would suggest giving this book a try. It's
full of wonderful stories by some very good authors. The
title of this review basically says it all!

True love, freedom, self-worth, security... Dreams and desires of the ordinary woman, or man. From best friends who discover love to a young woman looking for a place to belong to a woman finding love again, this collection of sixteen stories celebrates the attainment of all one can dream or desire. Which one do you secretly yearn for?
By purchasing this collection, you can help turn someone's nightmare into the pursuit of dreams. Every year, four million women are assaulted by their partners. At Freya's Bower, we want to do our part to bring this statistic down to zero. To this end, all net proceeds from every Dreams and Desire anthology purchased will go to St. Bernard's Battered Woman's Shelter in New Orleans. (They have just rebuilt this past year from Katrina.) Through education and support, we can make a difference.
