This book has been fun to put together; I have always loved working with creative people. It makes for an interesting life, for the most part, it is a bit like being a juggler; during my working day I can end up talking about a dozen different projects all in various stages of completion.  

Mystic Desire is a collection of short paranormal romance stories. I have always been a big fan of the short story genre, both reading and writing them.  For the reader, it is a chance to read the work of a diverse group of authors.  I have discovered some great new writers from reading short stories.  From the author’s perspective, it gives us a chance to experiment on something new, try a different style, or something a bit more daring. 

I have found the stories very entertaining. The themes in this book are varied, as are the collection of characters and artifacts, including Native American dream catchers, mystical jewelry, lustful vampires,  hot warlocks, a grumpy leprechaun, a ghostly terrier, a zombie apocalypse and things that go bump in the night.  There is something for everyone in this anthology, from soft and tender love to hot passionate, kinky sex.

To give you a flavor of the book, this is a line up of the stories in Mystic Desire

Unconditional Lust – Breanna Hayse

The massive, hideous merrow leader, Muruch, craves the taste of human flesh. Confined to the ocean, he feeds his horde with sailors from ships pulled into the maw of the Bermuda Triangle.

Will she be able to see past his appearance and trust him to break down her walls and teach her to feel?

Before they can explore their feelings, Caleb and his family disappear. What happened to him, and what part does a long-ago legend play in their lives?

Dream Catcher – Callie Carmen

Long ago, a medicine man had made a matched set of dream catchers as a wedding gift to protect the Chief’s daughter and her warrior husband. He had called upon the benevolent spirits to keep the two soul mates safe and in a loving, healthy marriage. It was foretold that if the two dream catchers were ever divided the new owners would be drawn together as soul mates. Was that possible?

Life Saving – Anne Krist

Saving lives isn’t just for adults. Sometimes the innocent magic of a child can do the job better.

“I’m allowed to make love to my wife one last time before I have to cross over. So, are you ready for your husband? Are you ready for me, Ingrid?” He lifted my chin up and ran his thumb along my lips.  I felt a chill go down my spine. How could this be real? How could this be happening?

Love Knows No Apocalypse – Patricia Elliott
