REVIEW

"Excellent romantic fantasy"

Counting Crows by Mercedes Lackey. Lady Gwynhefar has to wed the King's choice abusive Lord Bretagne or her odious neighbor Baron Arghus though both are abominations. She marries Bretagne in a glove ceremony, but he is more brutal than she imagined as he rapes and beats her. Only her childhood hero Sir Atremus and her "maid" Robin give her solace. When Bretagne accepts a seditious deal and Atremus is dying, Gwyn acts to save the kingdom and her beloved with a spell, but what will it cost the witch?

Drusilla's Dream by Rachel Lee. Drusilla dreams of painting full time, but to eat she works in data entry at GalaxyCom. To get through the inane repetitive tasks Drusilla dreams the night away with thoughts of head programmer Miles fighting evil by her side. When daylight arrives can Drusilla and Miles take a shared dream and turn it into a loving reality?

Moonglow by Catherine Asaro. In Aronsdale, the most powerful magic practitioners wed the royals. Iris knows she will marry Prince Jarid. Though a spell cast to save his life left him blind, deaf, and unable to speak, Jarid and Iris communicate through the heart. She risks all to perform a spell for her beloved to gain the senses he lost, but the price is that those who killed his mother will murder him and his beloved.

These three great romantic fantasy novellas make their respective realms and key cast members seem authentic. The story lines hook the audience whether they prefer romance or fantasy. Readers will marvel at the talent whom provide a tremendous taste of what to expect from Silhouette's new imprint Luna.
