Passion takes wing in four all-new stories from New York Times bestselling and award-winning authors.
Romance and fantasy collide in these enchanting stories featuring dragons-and love-in all their many forms. Four of today's most popular authors bring to life mythical creatures, otherworlds of yesterday and today, and the passionate melding of hearts.
From a virgin princess's first love to a shape-changing samurai bridegroom, from a young widow and her sexy handyman's secret project to a knight and his distressed damsel, the courage, beauty, and strength of dragons inspire the most unforgettable stories ever told.
Dragons may rival vampires as a popular fantasy motif and, like vampires, the mythical beasts can provide a theme for romance as well. These four original paranormal novellas mix the two genres, but are far more romantic than fantastic. All the heroines are strong, brave, smart, independent and beautiful, and each finds a manly-but-tender soul mate with whom she will live happily ever after. The ritual role of an official, if ceremonial, Sacrificial Virgin Princess turns dangerously real in bestseller Beverley's "The Dragon and the Virgin Princess," when a dragon-riding foreigner claims her as his bride. Set in a mythical medieval England, bestseller Putney's "The Dragon and the Dark Knight" features a hero who discovers that slaying dragons is the last thing he wants to do. Though fantasy fans will find these novellas far too frothy, romance lovers with a fondness for fire-breathers will be delighted. (Mar.)
