Warnings: explicit language and sex, including anal sex.With visions of battle still fresh in his mind, Roane Bradfield returns home to find the woman he loves betrothed to another. He corners Kendrick Moreland at Dowager Huggins’ Grand Ball and whisks her into the secluded library. One way or the other, he will know the reason the duplicitous beauty cut him from her life when she promised to wait forever. Oh, Kendrick was a cool witch. She wouldn’t be when he finished with her, took her down a notch, made her suffer as he had suffered. In his mind, the battlefield surfaced—the stench of death, the acrid smoke from the howitzers, and the blood-drenched soldiers searching the ground for lost limbs. He placed his hands behind his back so she wouldn’t see the onset of tremors. The affliction would pass soon and he didn’t want her pity. He wanted her, needed to taste every inch of her delectable skin, suck the tongue from her luscious mouth and bury himself deep inside her. * * *Black Lagoon Reviews: Cradle of Dreams by Keta Diablo, quite possibly one of the strongest and most enjoyable read of the entire collection. There was a great sense of detail to the story with a great back story as well as multiple layers spanning not only the present, but the distant past, creating an enthralling tale that had me captivated. I loved the twist of a soldier coming back from war only to find that everyone thinks that he died on the battlefield. The emotionality was great spanning the gap between rage, sadness, and deep seeded need. The erotic appeal of this novel was wonderful, springing from the great connection between the characters and fiercely dominate male that I couldn't help but drool over a bit. The writing itself was fluid, with nice world building despite the shortness of the story. This was definitely a great read that I would have loved to see be a little longer, just so I could see more of these appealing characters.* * *Bitten by Paranormal Romance: Cradle of Dreams by Keta Diablo – I have to add something about this paranormal historical read: I usually do not read historical but this one changed my mind (loved it) and made me want to try more historical reads. Sexual scene includes anal sex * * *Books for Company - Cradle of Dreams put my mind to rest on whether l would like this book at all just because of Keta’s writing, l really liked her style and it made her story easy to read. The story line wasn’t too confusing and l actually found it quite of a page turner which is hard when the story is only around 40 pages long! This story had quite a bit of romance in and the emotions that the characters had were well developed.* * *Booklovers Hideaway: I have never read anything by Keta before and let me say she had me from the first page. Loved the characters immediately well for exception of Roane I wasn't too sure of him , I love the bad boy but I thought he was a bit cruel at first but it didn't take long for me to change my mind of him and Wow! the sex scenes were smoking hot.
