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.
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.
A Falling Star by Jill Gregory
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
Curse of Castle Clough by Ruth Ryan Langan
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 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.
story has passionate love scenes.
