If you like magic, the paranormal, and a great love story, you will love Once Upon a Kiss, the latest anthology from Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Marianne Willman. These stories will lift you up and make you believe in the magic of love.

In Nora Robert`s A World Apart, Kadra, a demon slayer, is sent to the twenty-first century to find the king of the demons who has escaped to an alternate dimension - present day New York. PI Harper Doyle is more than a little surprised when Kadra suddenly appears in his New York apartment. He is even more stunned when she announces he is going to help her kill a demon king. Together these warriors will defeat evil and find a love that is big enough to cross two dimensions.

Jill Gregory tells the story of star cross lovers in Impossible. The battle between Marlbury and Bordmoor has been long and bloody, which grew worse when Tyron of Bordmoor kidnaps Erinn of Marlbury in order to save his castle and people. However, soon hatred turns romance and in this story a feud may just lead to a wedding and happily ever after.

In Ruth Ryan Langan`s novella Sealed with A Kiss, Arianna has been promised to a fierce Scottish laird. All is well until her escort arrives - one look at Lachlan MacLean and Arianna`s heart is lost. Lachlan is the nephew of Arianna`s future husband. However, the longer Arianna and Lachlan are together, the less Arianna wants to marry her laird. Can Lachlan and Arianna find a way to spend their lives together?

If you have ever dreamed of having your frog turn into a prince then Marianne Willman`s Kiss Me, Kate is for you. Kate Singleton has unexpectedly inherited an English manor house. Dumbfounded, Kate journeys to England to claim her inheritance; upon her arrival she meets her newest neighbor, Michael Bellamy. Kate is immediately attracted to Michael but soon discovers that Michael is contesting the will that gave her the manor house. Can Michael and Kate settle their difference and uncover a love that will last forever?

There is nothing more that I like than a really good book that captures my attention and then tells a really great love story. If you are like me, then you will love Once Upon A Kiss. This is a wonderful collection of stories by some really wonderful authors. Get this book as soon as possible then sit and shut out the world and slip away to a really wonderful place.
