5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Lovely, Whimsical Tales! January 17, 2002
By Sophie
"A Little Magic" by Nora Roberts contains three enchanting tales of magic and love. These stories are quick and easy reads, and are perfect for brightening up a gloomy day!
"Spellbound" tells the story of Calin Farrell, a successful photographer who travels to Ireland on a whim. He ends up drawn to the ruins of a once grand castle, and there meets the beautiful Bryna in her storybook cottage. What Calin doesn't know yet is that he and Bryna are part of a thousand year spell that can only be conquered by true love. Calin must give his heart freely to Bryna, or the evil wizard Alasdair will triumph, and Bryna will become his. This is a lovely, fanciful tale, with lovable characters and an exciting storyline.
In "Ever After" we meet the absent-minded Allena, who can't seem to find her place in the world. She is drawn to an island with a little help from some magic, where she meets Conal, a handsome recluse. Allena is swept away by her feelings for Conal and falls madly in love. But Conal, who has been told that it is his destiny to pledge his devotion to his one true love on the shortest night of the year, refuses to accept his feelings for Allena. Conal refuses to have fate control his life, and in the process may be throwing away his one chance at happiness! Conal and Allena are both vivid, rich characters, and their tale of magic and destiny is sure to please readers.
"In Dreams" is my favourite of the three stories. Flynn has been sentenced to an eternity trapped in a half world of dreams, with only one week every century in which to live. Five hundred years into his sentence, when his week is just beginning, Kayleen Brennan, the dark-haired beauty who haunts his dreams, shows up at his door in the middle of a storm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not So Magical Repeats January 28, 2002
By A Customer
The stories were very good when they were first printed in various books, but it would have been a lot better if there had been a notification that these stories were reprints. Since I've already read them, it makes you feel gipped that they were listed as a new book.

I liked all of the stories in the original "Once upon..." series but if you have already read that series than you aren't getting anything new in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars New title for same stories March 28, 2002
By A Customer
This is to address those who are complaining about the reprints and not knowing that they are reprints. I could be wrong, but I do believe that the cover says "Includes three of her favorite Irish stories: Spellbound, Ever After and In Dreams." So...if you've already read these titles, you should know that this book has nothing new to offer you. For those who have not read these titles, you get three books for the price of one. What more could you ask for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely enchanting August 7, 2002
I read all three of these stories and enjoyed all of them. They were true Nora Roberts- romance, magic, a hint of mystery or some wierd problem. These are not formula romances by a long shot.
Truly fun to read. In the first story, Calin travels to Ireland with no real reason as to why. When he sees Brynna, he realizes why he came. As they learn to work together and as they fall in love they face many problems that most couple don't face.
The second story, which was my favorite of the three, Conal is a loner and likes it that way until Allena gets lost and shows up at his home. An enjoyable story with magic and love and more.
The third story was my least favorite of the three, but any Nora Roberts book at it's worst is better than many romance books at their best. Kayleen must learn to love a man who can only have her 'in dreams' and how to conquer this unusual problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of Magic!!! May 3, 2002
A little bit of magic has three Nora Roberts stories together for the first time all set in Ireland. This alone makes this a must own for any Roberts fan. Than the stories come in!
Spellbound is about Calin after many sleepless nights he realizes he has to travel to ireland there he comes face to face with a women who is so familar it's scary. Bryna says she's loved Calin forever and he needs his help to fight an evil that could keep them apart. Calin doesn't know what to beleve but he knows he wants Bryna.
Ever After is my favorite Allena can't do anything right. The family screw up she somehow ends up in trouble. Trying to make it back to her job she ends up shipwrecked on island with Conal. Conals knows that Allena is there because she's his destiny but can he face his fears so that there future will be together?
And Finally In Dreams--Kayleen finds herself alone with a man who can only have her for awhile and In dreams
3 Great Stories that celebrate Love and a Little Magic!

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful hint!!!! April 17, 2004
All of these stories are good!!! However, if you have read her Once Upon a ... Anthology series don't get this book. These stories are consolidated from those books. A Little Fate which is about to be released is the same way!!!! I am a fairly detail-oriented person and still I only noticed a second before I bought it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The stories never develop March 23, 2002
By A Customer
This book needs more meat. The stories are so short that the characters never get a chance to really develop. It's like reading a short story in a magazine. It can be entertaining, but it's not like reading a typical Nora Robert's novel. I was disappointed.

I found this book to be outdated, repetitive, boring, been-there-done-that. You can tell this was written years ago when attitudes about women were different. Read more
