"Claire demonstrates that she is one of the most talented writers of time travel romances with Once Upon A Kiss, a wonderful tale that fans of the sub-genre will devour." - Affaire de Coeur Once Upon A Kiss For over a thousand years - so legend has it - the brambles have grown wild over the ruins of Dunhelm Castle. Many believed that the thorns were a sign that the castle was cursed, so no one dared to trespass, and the secrets that they protected and concealed have remained hidden - until now. . . Armed with a pair of gardening shears, Baird Beauforte is determined to clear away the brambles that hinder the development of his resort, and he won't let local superstition deter him. Dunhelm Castle is supposed to be the latest jewel in the Beauforte Resort chain, but the renovations can't be finished if the workmen are frightened of a so-called curse. To dispel any lingering fears, Baird decides to vanquish the briars himself. What he never expects is to find a mysterious slumbering beauty. . . Aurelia is like no one he has ever met before. Upon awakening, she demands to know his identity and why he is in her father's castle! Bemused by her claim of being a king's daughter, he is certain he has never met this "princess" before, although something about her rouses a haunting sense of famialirity. Soon, dreams plague this by-the-book businessman. . .dreams that feel more like memories. And Baird begins to wonder if he can claim his heart's princess - now and forever - with a kiss. . . "Claire turns humor, love, murder and reincarnation into a work of art. Take a bow, Claire, this is stunning!" - Donita Lawrence of Bell, Book & Candle Winner of the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence for Best Paranormal, Time Travel, Fantasy, or Futuristic Romance. This edition includes excerpts from LOVE POTION #9 and THE COUNTESS."--… (more)
