"Dangerous Gifts" in Faery Magic collection, Kensington
Reissue October 2006
Originally published January 1998
A shy mortal girl rashly accepts a faery lord’s offer of beauty and charm. Then he comes to claim a terrible price--the loss of her new love and everything she holds dear.
“In this well-conceived and unusual anthology, four veteran romance writers (Jo Beverly, Karen Harbaugh, Barbara Samuel, and Mary Jo Putney) join forces (across the Internet) to create the magical and powerful world of Faerie, the setting for the four linked but separate novellas that comprise this beautifully done collection. Drawing on myth and legend, these stories depict the interactions between faeries and humans and their often romantic, but not always pleasant consequences, and will appeal to readers who enjoy both fantasy and historical romance set during the late Georgian and Regency periods.”
Chosen as one of the top five romances of the year by Library Journal.
