Live the dream with bestselling author Kate Perry's Summerhill sisters, a modern day Downton Abbey tale... Summer Welles wants the fairy tale. The illegitimate daughter of Reginald Summerhill, the Earl of Amberlin, she listened to her mother's stories about the Summerhill girls all her life. In her mind, Summer was part of the stories too—living in the castle, wearing fancy dresses, and falling in love with Prince Charming. Her wish came true. Mostly. She lives in the Summerhill mansion. She has stepsisters—nice ones who don't make her clean the chimney. She even has a magical wedding dress waiting for her special day. The only thing missing is the prince. What Summer didn't count on was mistaking a masked frog for her prince. But once she kisses the mysterious man, he won't go away. And he's not charming or princely—he's more interested in ravishing her rather than riding off into the sunset. With her fairy tale at stake, Summer's faced with her own quest: sacrifice her Happily Ever After, or turn her back on the one man who makes her feel alive?

There was once a dream, though it wasn’t mine but I had it all the same, and I still have it. It is neither a religious vision of doom or blessings, nor a political speech on promises or propaganda; for it is only a dream. You and I are here, and hereafter in this dream, you and I shall be called ‘we’, as it would be on planet earth and yes, we are in a dream, a dream-dream, for that is all it is. We or our dreams, at times one cannot tell which is vaguer. The picture of things is not yet clear but we have been made to understand that today is the first of January, in the year F.G. 300. As we must have guessed, the B.C. came and went, so too did the Anno Domini and the new calendar system is already three hundred years old. Yes, we are that far off our present consciousness. The F.G. is an abbreviation for Finem Gratiæ, a lost language’s way of saying ‘the end of grace’. We feel this language isn’t lost because we are still here, dreaming a dream.

Roberts heads the cast of writers that includes Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Marianne Willman in delivering all-new tales of dreams and desires. Roberts' story, "In Dreams", concerns a beautiful woman who is drawn to a castle in the forests of Ireland and becomes the link to a stranger's past. Amazon.com Review The four ladies who brought us Once upon a Castle and Once upon a Star are at it again with this latest anthology, Once upon a Dream. These stories revolve around the magic and dreams that draw our heroes and heroines together. At best, such as in Ruth Ryan Langan's "The Enchantment," the fantasy elements are naturally integrated into what is a fundamentally strong plot, and they help to emphasize the main romantic dilemma. At worst, the magical dreams start to feel a little bit like a Brigadoon plot device, and distract us from the characters. Even so, Once upon a Dream makes a nifty stocking stuffer, or an antidote to a slow weekend. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien From Publishers Weekly On the heels of their previous collaboration, Once Upon a Star, four of America's most beloved romance authors present what is sure to be a popular collection of magical stories, wherein princely gentlemen (both human and not) sweep dazzling damsels off their feet and into a land of happily-ever-afters. Roberts opens with "In Dreams," a lyrical, contemporary tale about a 528-year-old magician who is granted only one week each century to experience life as a mortal man and the woman who helps him understand the difference between his fantastical powers and human-size love. In "The Sorcerer's Daughter," Gregory takes her readers back to medieval times, as a sorcerer's daughter matches wits with a knight as they each seek to claim a mystical necklace. She wants the necklace to free her father from prison; he wants it to win the hand of a princess. Langan follows the dreaminess of Roberts's and Gregory's tales with "The Enchantment," in which she gives the gift of time to two workaholics by stranding them in a beautiful summer mansion long enough for them to meet and fall in love. To conclude this lush collection, Willman sends enthusiastic readers off to romantic Venice in "The Bridge of Sighs," where a woman longs to solve an old mystery and be reunited with her ex-husband.

What if the sleeping beauty never woke up? Once Upon a Dream marks the second book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. It should be simple--a dragon defeated, a slumbering princess in a castle, a prince poised to wake her. But when the prince falls asleep as his lips touch the fair maiden's, it is clear that this fairy tale is far from over. With a desperate fairy's last curse controlling her mind, Princess Aurora must escape from a different castle of thorns and navigate a dangerously magical landscape--created from her very own dreams. Aurora isn't alone--a charming prince is eager to join her quest, and old friends offer their help. But as Maleficent's agents follow her every move, Aurora struggles to discover who her true allies are and, moreover, who she truly is. Time is running out. Will the sleeping beauty be able to wake herself up?
