Tapestry is anthology with four different authors: Lynn Kurland, Madeline Hunter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, & Karen Marie Moning. Each of the stories has a tapestry that plays a prominent role in the story line, hence the title of Tapestry.

I originally bought the book for the Lynn Kurland's story, To Kiss in the Shadows, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked three out of four of the stories in the anthology. The only one I didn't really like was Into the Dreaming, but even that was well-written, it just wasn't my cup of tea.

To Kiss in the Shadows is my favorite out of the four. Jason is one of my favorite de Piaget characters and I enjoyed reading his story. He's a wonderful, humble, well-rounded character. He's as fierce with a sword as any of his brothers, but unlike those brothers, he doesn't hide from his compassionate side.

I also really enjoyed Dragonswan by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I was a bit surprised because I don't usually like her style of writing, but I found this one intriguing and fascinating. It's well-written, has wonderful characters and is just a joy to read.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes historical romance or paranormal romance.

I bought this anthology because many people I know are VERY into Sherrilyn Kenyon, and they've all insisted before that Kenyon's stories are well worth the money. I've read the synopsis of many of her books, and I just hadn't been interested. To be honest, I'm not all that hip on Vampire novels. But "Dragonswan" seemed to get rave reviews here on Amazon, it wasn't a vampire novel, and I thought because it was smaller and there were other authors in this anthology, I might be able to ease my way into reading some Kenyon.

Unfortunately, I was wrong. This is really not the book a first time Kenyon reader should be reading, apparently, because I was decidedly unimpressed. I'm really not seeing the appeal. Nor did I see the appeal of Kurland or Hunter.

I'll admit it....I've got a short attention span. Or, maybe it's adult ADD. But whatever it is, I've really got to feel a connection to a story in a hurry, or I find myself starting to skim and flip through instead of reading. From the beginning, with Kurland's story, I felt I'd come in right in the middle of something (which I did, seeing as how I've never read any of her other stuff and this was apparently an extension of another series?). That made reading the story a bit awkward. I finished it, but I had this odd feeling of incompleteness with it.

Hunter's story just didn't grab me at all. I really wanted to like it. I tried very hard to stick with it and like it. But by the middle, I was just bored with it and had to move on.

Kenyon's story was much the same as Hunter's. I tried to like it. I tried to stick with it. But even more than with Hunters, I found myself really bored, and wanting to skim rather than read. After almost a week of picking it up, reading a few lines then putting it down again, I finally had to move on with that one as well.

I will say here that I am a big Moning fan. And for me, that's what saved this book. I was interested from the beginning. Once I started reading it, I finished in a few hours. Not sure what it is about Monings style that I like, but for me, she's very easy and enjoyable to read.

So, I gave this one a 3, mostly based on Moning's story, as the others were just too hard for me to get into.

Tapestry is an anthology of medieval romances by four well-known authors. The theme throughout these stories is a tapestry woven of enduring love and bold, beautiful women.

To Kiss in the Shadows by Lynn Kurland:

Lianna belonged to King Henry who would soon wed her and her lands to a man who would not mind her pox-scarred face. As a wealthy ward of the king, she spends her time weaving a tapestry in the women's solar, unmindful of the other women's snide remarks and cruel pranks.

Jason of Artane is a knight with plans to travel to France until he meets the mysterious Lianna. Known as the Dragon's man, he inspires terror wherever he goes, but Lianna does not seem to fear him. He is smitten by her courage and inner light. Will she see him for the man he really is?

Jason has his sights set on Lianna, but he must persuade the king to wed her and her vast wealth to a third son. Lianna cannot understand why the handsome Jason of Artane would want her as his wife. How could any man love her?

This tender story warmed my heart. True love comes from the heart and the connection between Jason and Lianna is nothing less. Brotherly banter between Jason and his older brother Kendrick lends humor to the story, making it an entertaining read by a very talented author. Despite the difficulty I had understanding some of the courtly dialogue, I feel it was necessary in creating the medieval atmosphere for this story.

An Interrupted Tapestry by Madeline Hunter:

Giselle is desperate to save her irresponsible brother who has debts all over London, but the only thing she has left to sell is her virtue. She swallows her pride and seeks help from her old friend, Andreas.

Andreas has plans to join his house-Hanse-with that of Venice, which would form a trading network more powerful than ever known. This would require that he marry the daughter of Signore Alberti. The only problem is old feelings for Giselle have surfaced and he cannot get the lovely vision of her red hair gleaming in the sunlight while she plays beautiful music on her lute.

Years ago, Andreas abruptly left London, ending his friendship with Giselle's brother to preserve her honor and dignity. Giselle is unaware of the circumstances of his quick departure and still harbors some anger at Andreas. Giselle is left to deal with her brother's angry creditors and with no one else to turn to, she calls on Andreas for help. When they meet after years apart, old feelings of desire resurface, but Andreas is about to commit to a marriage to a powerful merchant's daughter. Since Andreas already owns her beloved tapestry, Giselle is willing to sell him her virtue to clear up the debts, but will she lose her heart in the process?

This was a nice story about enduring love. The tenderness that Andreas shows for Giselle is endearing. He is a true knight coming to her rescue. Giselle is a true damsel in distress, but she struggles to hang onto her pride with the fierceness of a true warrior.

Dragonswan by Sherrilyn Kenyon:

Dr. Channon MacRae is a history professor at the University of Virginia, specializing in pre-Norman Britain. She is an average looking woman and she wonders why such a handsome man like Sebastian would have any interest in her. She is studying a dragon tapestry-the famous Dragon Tapestry that no one has been able to interpret.

Sebastian Kattalakis is handsome with long black hair and greenish-gold penetrating eyes. He also has an unusual tattoo that spirals from his hairline to his chin like an ancient symbol. Sebastian is a four hundred year-old Sentinel of the Drakos clan and can shapeshift into a dragon. He cannot understand why he is drawn to Channon, but something about her stirs the beast within him.

Sebastian visits the future to steal the Dragon Tapestry so he can save his brother back in Saxon England. He decides to spend one night with Channon. What he does not expect is to be mated with Channon, which means he cannot leave her and has to take her back to Saxon England with him, putting her life in danger. As a banished Prince of Arcadia, he has many enemies because the Arcadians (who like Sebastian have human hearts) and the Katagaria (who have animal hearts) are at war. When Sebastian is severely injured by a blade covered in Dragon's Bane, it is up to Channon to save him. But to save him she was commit to be his mate for life and the conditions that go with being an Arcadian mate.

The mythology behind the Arcadians was rich in detail and interesting, combining Greek myths with dragon lore. This tender romance tells the story of two soul mates that find each other despite all odds.

Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning:

Aedan MacKinnon is a descendent of the Scottish king, Kenneth McAlpin with a home on the Isle of Skye at Dun Haakon in 928. To save the lives of his clansmen, he agrees to spend five years in the Unseelie Court of darkness and ice, only to discover he has been tricked-five years in the Faery realm is really five hundred years. In the end only a woman's love can save him, but who will love him after his humanity is stolen from him?

Jane Sillee lives in present day Indiana and works at a coffee shop, but hopes to be a published writer someday. Since she was a little girl, she has dreamed of a dark haired Highlander. In her dreams, they are lovers.

The only one who can help Aedan is the Queen of the Seelie Court of Light. After his five hundred years of imprisonment, he will be allowed to spend one month at Dun Haakon. During that time if he loves and is loved in return, he will be freed. If not, he will have to serve the Unseelie king as the new Hand of Vengeance until the king chooses to replace him-then he will die. The Queen weaves a tapestry with magic to bring Aedan and Jane together in their dreams to prepare for the day when they will meet in 1428. After centuries of torment, Aedan does not remember Jane or who he is. Can Jane melt the ice around his heart and help him remember?

Ms. Moning has crafted an enchanting story filled with timeless romance and faery lore. Her words are truly magical.

Tapestry weaves stories of enduring romance, gallant heroes and heroines who have strong wills and a tender touch for the men of their dreams. Though all of the stories were done well, my favorite stories were To Kiss in the Shadows and Into the Dreaming for the charismatic prose, which shined like the full moon floating among a sea of stars.
