“The Lovers? It looks more like a triad. Why is there another chick?”
Abigail laughed as she looked at the stunned ex-pression on Annabelle Friedman’s face. “Some decks have two ladies with a man between them and others have a male and female. I just happened to pull out this deck for you.”
“I guess it could be accurate. I mean I was engaged to be married, but he left me for another woman. This vacation is a compensation of sorts. His attempt to keep me from going to the press, probably.”
“So your ex-fiancé is an important man?” Abigail studied her latest reading and wondered how much convincing it would take to make Annabelle realize she’d drawn a positive card.
“Yes. He runs a very successful company. That’s why it’s hard to believe he dumped me. I’m a much bet-ter choice financially. I’m already well established in my career. I have my own money and don’t need his. We have a mutual respect and admiration for each other, and got along wonderfully. His new fiancée is an airhead who didn’t even go to college. She has nothing to offer him. I hope he makes her sign a prenuptial agreement.”
Abigail watched Annabelle’s animated face and wondered why it was that sometimes the obvious es-caped even the most intelligent of people. “If that’s how you really feel, you won’t like this reading.”
“It doesn’t count anyway, right? I mean we’re in an airplane—”
“Hon, my readings count no matter where I do them. I keep my cards cleansed and put them away properly after each reading. But I digress. Let’s get on with your reading, we have the rest of the ride to draw up that prenup for your ex-fiancé.”
Abigail drew in a deep breath, centered herself, then smiled at Annabelle and pointed to the card once more. “The Lovers. What luck you have to have drawn this card. Most women, and men for that matter, would envy you this reading. The Lovers is about attraction, beauty, trials overcome, and of course, love.”
“Well it’s a little late to pull that card for me.” An-nabelle laughed and leaned back in her seat. She waved for a flight attendant. Abigail waited until Annabelle ordered another drink, then she tapped on the card.
“Yes, love. You will be forced to make a decision about love, and you’ll surprise yourself. Love has no reason and is unpredictable. In this case, it will sneak up on you and bite you in the ass. Someone you have already met will make you reevaluate everything you once thought you knew. Love will happen and no mat-ter what you do, you’ll never feel complete without this other person.”
“I hope it’s a guy and not a girl. The picture on that card doesn’t look very promising.”
“You don’t seem to really believe in this reading, so what does the picture matter? Are you just humoring an old lady? What would it take to convince you that you don’t know everything?”
“It’s silly to think that a card will predict my future. I make my own destiny, no one else. My actions deter-mine my future, not some mysterious and kinky card.” Abigail shook her head. The awakening, when it came, would be rude. But if Annabelle followed her heart things would work out okay.

All of the stories are erotic in nature and all are about the things that occur around the main character getting the tarot card reading from Abigail. There is a volume 3, and I intend to read it too. This is a fun and entertaining set of anthologies!

“Oh no.” Tayla Stevens groaned as she looked out the window. Thick, white snowflakes filled her vision. A light dusting already covered the ground, and accord-ing to the weatherman they were going to get fifteen inches or more. “If we have to get snowed in, couldn’t it be with the man of my dreams?”
“You’d have to date first. Besides, it’s five o’clock,” her assistant whined. “I need to go home, but you’ll never finish all this in time for the Johnsons’ Christmas party if I do.”
“Actually, you can. Thanks to all your help, all I have left to make is the fruitcake truffles. You’re the best, Sheryl.”
“Didn’t Mrs. Johnson say she was sending some-one over to pick everything up at five?”
“Yes.” Tayla sighed. “But I’ll just drop off the truf-fles on my way home.”
“You better hurry,” Sheryl said as she glanced out the window. “Pretty soon you won’t be going anywhere.”
“I have nowhere to go anyway.” Tayla stifled an-other sigh. She hadn’t. Not since Hunter had left for the big city, anyway.
She still couldn’t believe how quickly he’d dumped her and moved when he’d received a job offer at some fancy law firm. And now the big shot was coming home for Christmas, and his mom was throwing the party of the century at their estate. If the newspapers were accurate, he’d be bringing a girl or two with him. Hunter Johnson, playboy of the year.
“Go on home, Sheryl. It’s Christmas Eve and you should be with your family. I really appreciate you coming in to help me prepare the food for this party.”
“I don’t mind, but I do wish you’d reconsider and let me set you up with Ricardo. He’s Latin, sexy, and has great moves.” Sheryl moved her hips in such a way Tayla had no doubt what moves Sheryl meant.
“If he’s that great then why aren’t you with him?”
“Because I have Dean.” Sheryl grinned and her eyes turned dreamy as she began to hum The Wedding March. “Hey, what was it that fortune teller lady said to you? Wasn’t it something like seemingly irreconcilable opposites may not be irreconcilable after all?”
“I looked it up online, and Temperance means economy, moderation, frugality, management, and accommodation. I have no clue where she got irreconcilable differences.”
“Wasn’t that Hunter’s excuse when he left?”
“We weren’t married, Sheryl. He didn’t need an ex-cuse.”
“Yeah well, with him back in town, perhaps he is why you don’t want to meet Ricardo.”
“Okay, okay. Set me up with the sexy Ricardo.”
“Woo hoo!” Sheryl thrust her fist up in the air and shook her ass as she twirled in a circle. “I know you won’t regret this.”
“I’m regretting it already. Now go on.” Tayla laughed. “Get out of here and let me finish. Oh, and leave the door open for the Johnsons. Someone should be here any minute.”

Great excerpts Michelle. I'll have to check the bookstore next time I'm there to see if I can get a copy of Tarot Anthology Synchronicity Volumes 1 & 2.
