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. At last resigned to her fate, Arianna pleads for one last night alone by the shores of an enchanted loch, her final night of freedom. When Lachlan finds her there, he can no longer resist Arianna’s charms. How can Lachlan and Arianna continue on, knowing what a sweet gift they are throwing away? It would take a miracle and perhaps a father’s love for them to find a way to be together. Finally, in Kiss Me, Kate, Kate Singleton inherits Frogsmere, an intriguing estate in East Sussex. Agatha Culpepper’s estate is everything that Kate has ever dreamed of. Filled with wonderful books, old furniture and even a somewhat determined young frog, Frogsmere seems to be the perfect place to continue writing Agatha’s last manuscript. Michael Bellamy, the master of King’s Meadow, rescues Kate following a car accident and their attraction for each other only grows over the passing days. Nevertheless, Agatha’s previous agreement with Michael about the disposition of the mansion and the lands surrounding it may impact everything, throwing Kate and Michael at loggerheads. All seems lost until a little magic and a determined frog’s kiss enlighten Kate to the true magic behind her new home and the enduring promise of true love.

Nora Roberts has written better. Most of the tales were too short and not engaging to read. Impossible, and Kiss me Kate weren't that bad. Sealed with a Kiss was too contrived.

"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. Harriet Klausner

All 4 stories were terrific. A World Apart by Roberts was like Zena The Warrior Princess meets Magnum PI, settings of Earth and an alternate universe; Sealed With A Kiss by Langan was my favorite - the value of love is shown to a highland warrior and his chosen during an encounter at an enchanted lake - terrific love story, a keeper; Impossible by Gregory was like Romeo and Juliet meet Harry Potter - cute; Kiss Me, Kate by Willman was a terrific story of an American woman who inherits some property in England, falls in love and finds that some fairy tales really do come true. All of the stories have some type of paranormal twist.
