ONE RUB MORE
Flynn has been cursed for over a century for a social slight he never committed. A voodoo priestess hexed him and forced him into a teapot where he could be summoned by the rub of a woman’s palm.

Unable to break free from an invisible cage of lust and sex to fall in love again he’s resigned to being a sex object and nothing more.
Helena has been house sitting far, far away from her complicated past in England— including her former childhood sweetheart, who wasn’t satisfied when Helena didn’t want to be barefoot and pregnant. She’s resigned to leave behind the complications of men and sex. She hopes logic will win out over her unreliable emotions—but she’s put to the test when she accidentally summons Flynn from his teapot prison.

What a great combination of stories wrapped around the theme of this anthology Kissed From Beyond. Every story was unique with its own style of writing leaving you with wanting more in the end. I loved how each story brought back the old soul/spirit/genie/ghost from the past into the present to bring pleasure to their destined lovers. The erotica scenes were HOT leaving my minds sexual hunger in sensory overload and my husband enjoying the repercussions. All the stories were fast reads and I loved all the characters to the point that I only wanted more of their story to continue.
My rating for each story are as follows:
Cradle of Dreams by Keta Diablo – 4 stars
I have to omit something about this paranormal historical read and that is that I usually do not read historical reads but this one changed my mind (loved it) and made me want to try more historical reads. Sexual Scene includes anal sex.
A Love Soul Deep – 3 stars
This one was a good story, a little eerie because the spirit from the past really didn’t exist in the end but the lover ended up pregnant which was totally wicked. Sexual Scene includes anal sex.
One Rub More – 3 stars
This story was cute and loved how the genie’s cures was broken.
Til We Meet Again – 4 stars
This story awed me in the end and I wanted it to last longer than it did.
