Four all-new stories of romance, fantasy, and natural enchantment. From wizards to weathermen, many know the powers of the four elements-natural forces that can direct the fates, change destiny, and unite lovers in the most unexpected ways. Now, those magical elements-air, fire, water, and earth-come together in perfect balance, and a perfectly unique romance anthology, from four charmed authors. In Air find romance in a breathless retelling of the Cinderella fable from award-winning Sharon Shinn, "an amazing writing talent"(Best Reviews). In Fire blazes adventure in a parallel dimension of werewolves and love-slaves from USA Todaybestselling Rebecca York, "a true master" (Rave Reviews). In Water resides fantasy and a remarkable universe of magic, demons, and dangerous passion from "thoroughly original" (Starburst) award-winner Carol Berg. And in Earth discover the ultimate in profound pleasure from Jean Johnson, "a fresh new voice in fantasy romance" (Robin D. Owens).
Shinn (Reader and Raelynx), Johnson (The Master), Berg (Flesh and Spirit) and York (Moon Swept) offer stories of air, fire, water and earth in a delicious smorgasbord of styles. Shinn's "Bargain with the Wind" is a cautionary reminder about the dangers of making deals with capricious air demons, as exemplified when Lady Charis strikes a bargain to further her ambition of ruling the palatial estate of Grey Moraine. Johnson's "Birthright" focuses on the earthy desires of twin princesses Kalasa and Arasa, who must determine which was born first in order to decide who will become empress. Berg's "Unmasking" describes the truth-telling properties of water magic as young Joelle undergoes training to seek out souls possessed by demons. York's "Huntress Moon" finds virginal slave Zarah, who can communicate via fire, falling in love with her master, Griffin, a werewolf who buys her without knowing she's a spy. Erotic scenes from York and Johnson match the satisfying paranormal content. (Nov.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
