Mfanwy is chosen as the virgin sacrifice to the dragon that she has been told has been ravaging her village. She expects to be killed instantly, but is surprised and puzzled when Arragh, the Dragon of Cader Bala, rescues her. What she learns is that what she thought was her end was actually a new beginning. Fly With a Dragon by Rosemary Laurey is a tale about appearances and how they can be deceiving.

In Heart of the Raven by J. C. Wilder, her father, to cover his gambling debt to a traveler named Hakken, an Overseer of the Realm, sells Dani into slavery. What neither knows is that they are each the key to the other’s fate. For Hakken, Dani is the chosen one who, if he gives her his love, will break a centuries old curse. Dani must learn that love doesn’t make you weak and helpless when it is given to someone who loves you back.

I greatly enjoyed these short stories by two amazingly talented writers. They were funny, poignant, sexy and sensual. I think that you will enjoy them as much as I did. This is the first story I have read by Ms. Wilder and I will definitely be on the lookout for more. I have enjoyed Ms. Laurey’s vampire series. I am definitely looking out for the next one.
