"Lover's Locket" by Cathryn Fox

Centuries ago, on the eve of her arranged wedding to a man she doesn't love, Princess Caira Montright flees her father's castle and secretly meets her lover, Zarek.

Their plans to elope are foiled when one of Lord Montright's vassals captures them. The all-powerful Lord Montright places a curse on Zarek, banishing him to an eternity of hell inside a portrait—a portrait that finds its way back to Caira in every lifetime. Zarek is forced to watch Caira throughout the centuries yet never be able to claim her as his own.

The only thing that can break the curse is for Caira to recite the incantation on the Lover's Locket. Then she must battle the forces of evil to free him forever.

"I see you have found the Lover's Locket."

"What?" Startled by the woman's sudden appearance, Caira jumped back. She hadn't even heard her approaching footsteps.

The woman gestured toward the beautiful silver necklace enclosed behind the protective walls of the glass case and motioned for her to take a better look.

"The Lover's Locket," she repeated. Her aged voice cracked like dry brittle bones causing goose bumps to pebble Caira flesh.

Palms open, Caira placed her hands on the glass. She was so mesmerized by the beauty of the exquisite piece of jewelry she almost found it impossible to speak. She fought to recover her voice. "It's magnificent."

"You're searching...Yes?"

"Searching?" Caira didn't understand the question.

Passionate encounters lead to love affairs that will make the reader sigh with satisfaction. Each story effortlessly blends into the other, and I wasn't able to put the book down. For old fans and new readers alike, ALLURING TALES: AWAKEN THE FANTASY is a true delight!

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!

WOW!! ALLURING TALES: AWAKEN THE FANTASY was an amazingly erotic book filled with lots of sex, interesting characters and {keep beating my heart} love. The seven Allure authors have developed a group of well-written and easy flowing stories. I was impressed by the anthology as a whole and am more than ever eager to read more Allure authors.
