I love mythology and all three of these authors, so I HAD to pick this up.
Title: Three Fates
Author: Andrew Grey, Mary Calmes, Amy Lane
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Christine Griffin
Rating: 4.25 of 5 Stars
For time immemorial, the goddesses of fate have decided which human threads will shine and which will be cut short. But even the fates have off days.
Fate Delivers a Prince by Andrew Grey: Finding love shouldn’t be that difficult for a diplomat’s son, except Cheyenne is part of a grand tradition of werewolves, and a werewolf with a skin condition needs more help than most mortals. When Chay meets the prince of his dreams, it takes Clotho’s intervention to keep him from letting go.
Jump by Mary Calmes: When two lovers die, their threads of life are collected instead of scattered, as one of them was the brother of a god. Can the fates reunite two lovers whose threads should have twined together for eternity? Or will Cassidy allow Raza’s interest to pass his pale, mortal self by?
Believed You Were Lucky by Amy Lane: The gods’ meddling isn’t always welcome. It’s given Leif good luck but poor fortune, and Hacon a family curse he’s lived in fear of all his life. But when Leif’s good luck saves Hake’s life, Hake has to reevaluate everything he’s ever believed about luck, life, and love.
I love the theme of this anthology. Many romances reference fate in one form or another and I liked how this anthology focused on the mythological origins of many of the fate ideals. Each author did a great job bringing to life the fates of various cultural pantheons. I am glad to have discovered this gem and recommend it to anyone looking for a little romance.
Fate Delivers a Prince by Andrew Grey
I liked this one. It was a short shifter tale using the Greek version of the fates as guides. It was very easy to read and fulfilling with a little bit of angst before the final HEA was reached.

Very unique tale of love spanning time and life forces being interwoven by the fates. This story incorporated the Egyptian pantheon as well as the greek fates. I really enjoyed the suspense in discovering if these two men would get their HEA the second time around.

The Norse pantheon drives the show in this tale of luck and love. It involves not only the fates but Thor and Loki as well. I loved how this one unfolded. The gods mess with human lives and the fates must watch what unfolds. The tale was intriguing and captured my attention the entire time. As this was the longest story in the anthology it had the most development and was my favorite of the three.
