A collection of three romantic short stories with a hint of fairy tales thrown in. The Firebird, by Carola Dunn, has a young woman, trying to free the man of her dreams from a spell, even though she believes they can never be together. Karla Hocker's Dancing Shoes matches the headmistress of a school for young ladies with a magical dance partner. Judith A. Lansdowne finishes off the collection with King Thrushbeard, with a wizard earl, trying to free a young woman from a nasty spell.

This is a an anthology of three short stories tied together with a magical waltz linking the three. I enjoyed all three of them.

Reynata is a wer-fox trying to make a life with the man of her dreams possible....with a little help of a spell cast by her grandmother.

Minna is a school-teacher who has no time for any man but has the luxury of having the same dream of a man she cannot see, "Mr. Right." After walking through a magic doorway with the help of dancing shoes, she finally gets the chance to meet the literal man of her dreams.

Artemis is a spoiled girl and Elias Thoroughgood, the Earl of Lanningsdale, is in love with the girl he grew up with twelve years ago. But can he undo all the years of man hating lessons taught to Artemis at the hands of a misleading teacher?

This is a great short story collection with a dash of romance!

I really enjoyed these three short stories. They were clean regency romances that were delightful.
