Having read ONCE UPON A CASTLE, I couldn't wait to read ONCE UPON A STAR.  I can honestly say, each author has her own magic and each story has it's own enchanting gift of entertainment. 

Ever After by Nora Roberts
You know Nora Roberts; she's yet to write one that isn't a winner. The woman can paint a picture with her words--it's amazing!  Allena buys a magical necklace and finds herself on a magical trip. When Conal meets Allena, he realizes his fight with the past is going to be even more difficult than he ever imagined. A fanciful, entertaining read.

 Catch A Falling Star by Jill Gregory
Jill Gregory's historical short story is light on magic and heavy on romance. I love historical reads and found this one enjoyable. Princess Lianna is being forced into a marriage with Ambrose the Barbarian. She hates the thought of being married to a barbarian and resents that he will not let her use her special gift. While Ambrose fights for the right to keep his inherited property, Lianna finds her self fighting for the right to keep her heart. They will teach you a lesson in love and loyalty 

 The Curse of Castle Clough by Ruth Ryan Langan
 A ghostly read. This is one of two that I enjoyed the most. Warming up to the characters (especially Jamie) was no problem at all! When dropped off at her next assignment, the driver warns Estelle that the castle is cursed. Her job is to estimate and sell some family antiques for Lord Cameron, who is being forced to liquidate his precious family heirlooms. A delightful read! 

Starry, Starry Night by Marianne Willman
This is the second of the two that I enjoyed the most. It's a Time Travel that will captivate you, and a romance that will move you. After coming to Cornwall, Lily finds her self lost and in danger. A stranger appears to save her, yet disappears again. Rees finds himself haunted by the site of a woman in a white dress, and each time he reaches for her, she disappears. A wonderful experience of love reaching through time. 

Warning: Each story has passionate love scenes.
