For people who love Science Fiction and Fantasy mixed with Erotic Romances, this book is for you. The basic premise of this story is truly unique and the characters are not only likeable but also very sympathetic. This is a great book and a must read.

Full fledge erotica, but actually gives a good story inbetween the sex scenes. Actually very interesting to see two completely different "fantasy" type stories come together to tell one erotic paranormal story.

I am a huge Angela Knight fan but I actually liked Diane Whiteside's story better. The way both authors worked together to create two seperate stories that began and ended together was amazing

Fearing that they will be written off, characters from the books 2 sisters/authors write come to life wanting revenge on them for all of the pain & anguish they have written for them. They of course also want to show them what they have been missing in the sexual sense as well. The way the 2 authors of this book combine the stories using past & future worlds, magic & other powers is quite astonishing. You will want to find 2 heros like these for yourself when done reading this. Oh if only we could write characters like these & they could come to life!!!!!!!!

I liked this one very much, although the styles of Angela Knight and Diane Whiteside are very different. Although the two stories are both explicit, the one by Diane Whiteside uses more flowery language than that of Angela Knight, whose writing is much more straight-forward. You can only read Whiteside comparing a woman's feminine parts to flowers before it becomes annoying.

This particular version is from Berkley although the picture shown is the Ellora's Cave version. The book that comes with this ISBN is a trade size paperback with different cover art than shown.

I really really enjoyed D. Ws story. I finish reading this story in one read. The plot was great and the story had me interested the whole time and not to mention the love scenes were HOT. I love both Corinne and Mykhayl. I wish I had man like Mykhayl for my own because he is so yummy!

Unfortunately, A.K. story was horrible. My biggest problem with her story was the hero, Jarred. He was such a jerk. I wanted to slap him so many times that I couldnt believe the heroin wanted to be with him even after he try to give her into slavery to his friend, which made hate the heroin for being so stupid and for taking him back. Also, the story actually had no plot. The story was like one VERY LONG sex scene and thats it. No enemy to defeat, no twist or anything. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.

I'm not so fond of the whole kidnap me, tie me up and FORCE me to come type books, so I ended up more skimming for the story. The story itself was entertaining, but otherwise this book was a bit to much for me.

I almost did not give this book up! I wanted to keep it, loved the premise and the heroes. I loved the idea that the characters from the books came to life and wanted revenge on the authors who created them. really good read.

An interesting premise. I thought Angela executed her story in a more interesting fashion than Diane.

I enjoyed the storyline of the two sisters and their writing dilemna. Unfortunately, one story is better written than the other. Still fun to read.

Wow this book was hot and sultry should have been labeled Erotica I loved it it keeps you engine Humming and you don't want to put the book down till its finished . Extremely good read.

The storyline was interesting and different from my usual reads. It was a little bit beyond believable but in truth does one read a book for believability or as Oscar Wilde says "to momentarily suspend disbelief"? Book 1 by Whiteside was of more interest to me since the sexual interplay was maintained between the two main characters. Book 2 didn't hold my interest as much as the first one did. More so for the reason that the sexual scene toward the end of the book was beyond where I wanted to go than the lack of imagination on the author's part.

I bought this book at Wal-Mart and was really surprised when I started reading it. Didn't know Wal-Mart allowed this type of book to be sold in it's stores.
The whole captive bondage thing is just too kinky for me. I skimmed it as well. Tolerable story but again the kinky thing doesn't do it for me.

Oh, And I have the right IBSN number but a different cover. Strange.

Description: Double the heat: the queens of super-sexy paranormal romance join forces for a one-of-kind novel.

Celeste and Corinne Carson are more than sisters-they're bestselling writers, each with a fantasy-fulfilling alpha-male hero. For Celeste, it's Jarred, a conqueror from the future. For Corinne, it's the barbarian Mykhayl from a world long ago. Devilishly sensual warriors, Jarred and Mykhayl have something in common themselves-they're both more real than their creators could have imagined. Fearing that the sisters are about to write them off, Jarred and Mykhayl decide to exact sweet revenge. The plan? Kidnap Celeste and Corinne, spirit them away to the very worlds of which they wrote, and persuade them to surrender to the sublime punishments of their own uninhibited imaginations.

Review: I'm not so fond of the whole kidnap me, tie me up and FORCE me to come type books, so I ended up more skimming for the story. The story itself was entertaining, but otherwise this book was a bit to much for me.

I really like the premise of this book - writers being brought into the fantasy worlds they created. I've read and loved books from both Diane Whiteside and Angela Knight. Maybe I just couldn't stretch my imagination enough, but parts of both stories just seemed a little silly - which is why I don't give it 5 stars. Besides that, it earns the other 4 stars easily.

Loved it. I especially liked Diane Whiteside's portion. It's definately erotica but also with a very good, unique storyline. Scifi mixed with romance.

This book was actually pretty good. I liked the first story better than the second one. Although they tie in together the first one IMHO was a better story. The characters are dreamy.

If you like it on the dom/sub side this the book for you. For me just a little too erotica.

This was an alright read. I started with the more recent books from Angela Knight andher stories have gotten better since wrote this one - according to the copyright it was done in 2002 by Ellora. I liked Diane Whitesides story better.

I picked this book up because I know Angela Knight will deliver a sexually charged story, which she does.

Ummm, I wasn't impressed by this book. The premise (storyline)sounded intriguing, but it was ultimately disappointing. The Angela Knight part of the book was marginally better than the Whiteside, but neither lived up to their reputations or my expectations. It was basically a setting for sex, sex, & more sex, and the storyline was the thin thread holding it all together. Think I'll pass on their next book.
