Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The four stories in Once Upon a Kiss, the newest volume in the Once Upon... series (Once Upon a Rose, etc.), contain elements of the fantastic, but only Nora Roberts and Jill Gregory succeed in making the unbelievable believable. Fate pairs a contemporary P.I. with an Amazonian demon slayer from a parallel universe in Roberts's irresistibly funny "A World Apart," and shades of Harry Potter and Romeo & Juliet can be found in Gregory's "Impossible," a charming fable of two lovers who bring peace to their feuding families through marriage. In contrast, Ruth Ryan Langan ("Sealed with a Kiss") and Marianne Willman ("Kiss Me, Kate") stumble with stories that would have been better suited as novels. Overall, this unbalanced collection isn't likely to encourage readers new to the series to look up the previous books, but there's no question that it will grace bestseller lists.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Once Upon a Kiss" is the fifth book in the "Once Upon a ..." series that Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Marianne Willman have been delighting readers with for several years. And once again their collaborative efforts have produced an enchanting read that readers are sure to enjoy. Filled with romance, true love, magic, and of course kisses, "Once Upon a Kiss" will keep readers captivated!
"A World Apart" by Nora Roberts introduces Kadra, Demon Slayer, a ravishing beauty and fierce warrior who has dedicated her life to battling the demons that plague her world. But when the King of the Bok demons and four of his warriors escape through a portal to a strange new world, Kadra too must enter this place and stop the Bok demons once and for all. But 21st century New York is a complex and baffling place, and so Kadra is sent to Harper Doyle, a Private Investigator destined to help her defeat the Bok. And from the sparks that fly between them from the first, it seems that Harper may just be destined to be the man who finally captures Kadra's heart!
Roberts has created a winning tale in "A World Apart" and readers will become utterly absorbed in the story. Is there a way for two people from different worlds to be together? Or will Kadra and Harper be forced to spend their lives loving each other from afar?
"Impossible" by Jill Gregory was a superb read and I loved it! Erinn, Princess of Malbury, has been sheltered and protected by her brothers and her father all of her life. So when she is kidnapped by her family's sworn enemy, Tynon of Bordmoor, she is rudely thrust into a cold and frightening world.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"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 that 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 romance anthology.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like glistening jewels in a lovely golden crown, these four short romances form a dazzling collection. In A World Apart, a lovely Demon Slayer arrives in modern day New York. Kadra hunts the Bok, horrible creatures who devour human flesh, in the bowels of the Subway, where a new Bok leader has just established his lair. Aided by Harper Doyle, a private investigator, Kadra learns about love on Earth and the one man she desires to keep by her side.

In Impossible, the tale of Romeo and Juliet finds new expression. Erinn of Marlbury is proclaimed to be a powerful witch, a woman with the power to defeat Duke Tynon of Bordmoor. Unfortunately, the truth is that Erinn's powers are somewhat lacking and often sporadic. When Bordmoor keep falls under a terrible spell, Tynon infiltrates Erinn's home and spirits her away, demanding that she restore Bordmoor to its former glory. However, the keep seems to be under some kind of enchantment - Tynon cannot get back inside and the inhabitants cannot get out. Although the keep is in ruin, it reappears briefly each day, bringing with it the haunting image of a dark-haired woman weeping. Who is the strange woman and how can they help her? If Erinn cannot break the spell, who can? Perhaps, by working together, Erinn and Tynon can restore peace to their peoples, allowing their love to blossom.

Sealed With A Kiss finds beautiful Arianna promised to the laird of lairds, an elderly leader of a neighboring warrior clan. Lachlan MacLean, his nephew, comes to bring Arianna to her bridegroom, but Arianna is difficult to manage. Hoping to soil her reputation enough to be returned to her family, Arianna tricks Lachlan into a compromising situation. Unfortunately, she only makes him angry and increases their attraction for each other.
