ONCE UPON A DREAM
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Witch
Each of the female relatives in Robin Wise's family, starting with her great-great-grandmother, have died right before their 30th birthday. Now Robin's birthday is drawing nigh and she's been agoraphobic for the past year. If only she could trace the origin of this curse.
Alex Simon is a British professor who lives next door to Robin. He feels inadequate around women, due to his relationship with his mother and his ex-fiancie.
Unknowingly Alex and Robin start sharing the same dreams. He recognizes the woman as his neighbor, but Robin has no idea who he is. When Millie, Robin's sort-of-mother, invites Alex to dinner, Robin has the strangest feeling that they've met.
Their dreams continue and an attraction for each other grows. Robin worries that a woman who may have no future doesn't have much to offer a man. But Alex isn't about to let a curse keep him from the woman he loves!
This is an excellent magical story with a marvelous hero and an admirable heroine. The dream sequences are wonderful and some are absolutely hilarious. The secondary characters, human and animal, are enjoyable and add greatly to the story. If you want a fun, exciting, humorous, fast moving story, this is it. (Jan., 368 pp., $5.50)
