Roxanne Sykes has been trying to restart her life after escaping an abusive marriage. The now divorced waitress only wants to be left alone, but her ex is out of jail and determined to make her pay for daring to leave him. But, Roxanne had recently bought a tapestry, one that had given her a very real night of EMBROIDERED FANTASIES, now the tapestry whisks her away.
Radnor Craddock never expected the arrival of a tapestry bride. There had been a number of them in Javara but finding an injured Roxanne and hearing her talk about dreams and tapestries, he knows that he and Sednar have only three days to make her want to stay. But, after learning that her ex-husband had abused her, would she want to stay in the Craddock keep with its many tales and past threats and reality of violence. On top of this, the tapestry managed to bring along a passenger this time, someone not wanted and would not be tolerated for the two men who love Roxanne.
EMBROIDERED FANTASIES is a fascinating look back into the tapestries world that author N.J. Walters has given her readers. Radnor and Sednar Craddock are the younger brothers of the cruel leaders of the keep, after the older brother's death they swore that cruelty and violence would no longer be tolerated. Change takes time, and their people are slowly seeing that the remaining brothers might be different, and when Roxanne stays, they believe in them. The characters are well fleshed out and vivid descriptions of the castle and lands has you feeling as if you are there, easily visualizing this amazing world.
