"A good romanic fantasy anthology"
A World Apart by Nora Roberts. Kadra the Demon
Slayer has vowed to destroy the devils that threaten her
world. When the demon warriors and their king flee through
a portal to a strange orb, Kadra follows. However New York
City in the twenty-first century is eerily bizarre so Kadra
coaxes private investigator Harper Doyle to help her battle
her demons even while love blossoms between them. Nora
Roberts provides a strong fantasy romance.
Impossible by Jill Gregory. Her family has always
sheltered Princess Erinn of Marlbury from the ravages of
the hundred-year war. Still their enemy Tynon of Bordmoor
kidnaps her. Tynon believes that Erinn is a witch, who has
enchanted his land and soon afterward his heart. Jill
Gregory paints a wonderful fantasy romance.
Sealed with a Kiss by Ruth Ryan Langan. Her father
promised powerful Highland chieftain Duncan MacLean his
daughter Arianna Douglas in marriage in exchange for
protection against invaders. When Duncan's warriors come
to escort Arianna, his nephew Lachlan steals her heart.
This is an entertaining tale although the key characters
are never developed.
Kiss Me, Kate by Marianne Willman. Kate Singleton
inherits a manor with a resident enchanted prince.
However, her heart belongs to her new neighbor, Michael
Bellamy. With a wee bit of help, Kate might save the
prince and gain heart's desire too. This is a fun fairy
tale that the audience will enjoy yet feel the American,
the Englishman, and the frog needed further development
perhaps in a novella.
The fifth Once Upon a ... is a delightful fantasy
