Laurell's story is more along the lines of a fable. To prevent her father from announcing her betrothal to a lecherous old man, Elinore declares that she's going to rescue Prince True, an arrogant prince taken captive decades ago by a sorceress. Challenges must be met to proceed to the next test to get close to freeing the prince and no one who has ever returned from the attempt. Elinore goes in expecting to die, preferring death to the marriage. The story isn't long enough to feel anything for this rather stiff character, but Elinore does make some rather smart, if unexpected decisions.
Yasmine Galnorn's story focuses on a Selkie who had run from a marriage 100 years ago and is now pregnant and with a man she loves when her former, very dangerous fiancé catches up with her. The story involves the D'Artigo sisters from the Sisters of the Moon series where we had earlier met this story's heroine.
Majorie M Liu provides the story of a princess who runs away looking for answers in a magical but dangerous forest a week before meeting with her intended, a fabled Warlord. The kingdom needs this man, the son of her mother's best friend, as their ally as roving bands cause havoc and destruction. She is rescued barely in the forest by a troupe of wandering performers and gets to be just Sally, keeping her identity a secret and falling for the leader of the group. This is the most emotional story in the book.
Sharon Shinn's story takes roughly 40% of the book. It involves a princess who refuses her father's demands to marry a neighbor who she's known all of her life but finds boring. So to find a suitor and marry her off, he holds a series of challenges involving fighting ability, courage and wisdom; the winner gets to marry the princess. Princess Olivia grows quite a bit in this story as she finds things aren't always as they appear.
