Reader Review: The concept for the stories definitely caught my eye. It seemed to be different then the usual cut and dry erotic romances that are being writtten today. I downloaded the book in high hopes, but was a little disappointed. In the first story I felt no connection with the characters and the supposed erotic scenes were bland at best. The second work by Charlotte Featherstone, I thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely read her again. The third one story, I never even finished, I was so bored. So there is some interesting things in this compilation, but you might be skimming must parts.
On Solstice eve long ago, a Druid priestess and Norse warrior succumb to forbidden, erotic desire. Their passion is one that neither death, decree--nor time--can tear asunder.
Now three women of later centuries begin their own sensual journeys, awakened by the ancient power of the priestess's words-- "Burn bright of winter's desire."
SABELINE experiences surprisingly unbridled nights with her betrothed's best friend in a lusty medieval tale....
SINEAD...her body yearns for her husband, killed in the Crimean War-- and for the officer who broke the tragic news....
AISLING writes risqué stories under a secret pen name, but her real-life love life is a bore...until she makes a wish for her winter's desire that works only too well.

I drank deeply of the wine my cousin had provided for the afternoon. She told me it would calm my nerves. "Princess Sabeline," I murmured daydreaming about the title I would regain after I wed. I was no longer a princess under English rule, yet I still was to the people of my father's province.
Due to the unrest within the Welsh provinces, an agreement had been made between the king of England and my father. He promised that my marriage would secure a better alliance between Wales and England. Though my father relinquished his title of prince to the English king, he retained all of his authority of his province, and was given, instead, the title of baron in exchange for the king's protection.
I took another long swallow as a man with shoulders nearly as wide as the door entered the room and offered my cousin a ravenous kiss.
My impending marriage on the winter solstice, a beloved celebration of our people, to a Marcher lord had precipitated my cousin, Margaret, to come for a visit. While here, she arranged an afternoon of "instruction" for me to learn of the intimacies between a man and woman. Two years and one week older, she had always served as my older sister. Over the years she had taught me many things, so I had accepted this suggestion.
Nonetheless, virgin that I was, I had misgivings. Margaret winked at me and handed the man, one of my father's castle guards, two long strips of sheeting. In fascination, I watched as he tied the end of each piece to the bedposts and draped them over her naked body. She wrapped each end several times around her wrists and lay back, her arms stretched wide.
Margaret's plump breasts proudly thrust upward, their twin nubs puckered already wit...
