"The Shadowed Heart" in Best New Paranormal Romance
Twelve tales of love and wonder...
Nymphs, starfighters, magical women, mystical men, ordinary mortals, and extraordinary beings populate stories that range from engagingly whimsical to profoundly moving. Highly imaginative short fiction and novellas from outstanding fantasy romance writers -- both bestselling authors and new talent.
"Guran's pioneering "best of" anthology, the first in a projected series, offers twelve enthralling tales of romance that incorporate supernatural, fantasy or SF elements. A few of these "stories of love and wonder" end with a standard HEA (romance-speak for "happily ever after"), but all avoid cliche. Among the best are Catherine Asaro's "The Shadowed Heart," about a battle-fatigued starfighter pilot."
