"Deserving duo deserve to attain lasting happiness"
Visiting British professor Alex Simon feels "miserably
inadequate" when it comes to women. Even his ex-fiancée
gave up on the pathetic Alex. He has written off the fair
sex so why is he spending so much time observing his
beautiful neighbor Robin Wise exercise and asking radio
host Dr. Dave for advice over the air waves?
Robin Wise also calls Dr. Dave telling him about her
greatest fear that she will die just before her thirtieth
birthday. Robin explains the "accidents" that happened to
the four previous generations of her female ancestors
including her mother. She turns thirty in two weeks.
Robin and Alex begin to share identical dreams (Freud would
have a field night with that relationship). Not long
afterward Robin's "surrogate" mother invites Alex to dinner
where he and Robin finally meet. They begin to fall in
love with one another from the start, but Robin knows that
the curse prohibits her from giving herself to any man, let
alone her beloved professor, because long-term
relationships are out of the question.
ONCE UPON A DREAM is an amusing, witty, and entertaining
paranormal romance that will provide vast pleasure to sub-
genre fans as well as lovers of contemporary tales. The
story line is fun whether it occurs in the mundane realm or
the subconscious dream world. The lead couple is a
deserving duo who readers will hope attain lasting
happiness while the secondary cast cements the tale with
humor and depth. Jennifer Archer hits a bulls eye with
this sensational story.
