Not only are the four tales extraordinary (linked together with the common thread of magic), each contains an element of enchantment. In Nora Roberts's "Ever After," the gift of an ancient pendant belonging to a fairy changes two lives forever. Jill Gregory's "Catch a Falling Star" finds a princess forced into a political marriage with a wife-murdering barbarian, while Ruth Ryan Langan's "The Curse of Castle Clough" offers a ghost who helps save a castle from the auction block and its owner from a life without love. Finally, a burned-out American tourist travels back in time to be rescued by--and to rescue--a handsome sailing captain in "Starry, Starry Night" by Marianne Willman

Four books in one! Nora Roberts at her best - tales of magic and love. A great read - you'll hate to put it down!
reviewed Once upon a Star on
In Ever After, Nora Roberts tells the story of an enchanted pendant, a mysterious island and a modern-day young woman who meets a stranger whom soon comes to mean more to her than anyone else in her life. It is up to her to convince this cynical man of the magic of a forever after love.

Jill Gregorys medieval heroine must wed a barbarian to save her kingdom from war. Determined to save herself as well, she uses her special powers to wish upon a star, casting a little spell that seems to work not only on her bridegroom, but on everyone else as well. She soon discovers that the way to save them all is through the true joy and magic of love in Catch a Falling Star.

A haunted castle is at the center of Ruth Ryan Langans ghostly troubles in The Curse of Castle Clough. A fierce and desperate lord tries his best to save his castle while a professor attempts to unlock the secrets that are causing problems in the Highland keep. Little do they suspect that love will play a role in their finding out the truth.

Starry Starry Night by Marianne Willman sweeps readers from present to past as a young woman is rescued by a stranger on a stormy night and is somehow pulled into the sorrows from the past. She must find a way to turn the darkness away and find a night filled with brightness.

I love all of the 'Once upon...' books. They are well written and take me away from the real world for just a bit.

From the same authors who brought you Once upon a Castle comes Once upon a Star, a welcome addition to romance anthologies. Not only are the four tales extraordinary (linked together with the common thread of magic), each contains an element of enchantment. In Nora Roberts's "Ever After," the gift of an ancient pendant belonging to a fairy changes two lives forever. Jill Gregory's "Catch a Falling Star" finds a princess forced into a political marriage with a wife-murdering barbarian, while Ruth Ryan Langan's "The Curse of Castle Clough" offers a ghost who helps save a castle from the auction block and its owner from a life without love. Finally, a burned-out American tourist travels back in time to be rescued by--and to rescue--a handsome sailing captain in "Starry, Starry Night" by Marianne Willman. Sit back, put your feet up, and travel to distant times and places with four of romantic fiction's best authors

Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan and Marianne Willman can definitely write a book/story that holds the interest. Very difficult to put book down.
