There a chance encounter with the wizard Merlin and tending to the wounded Tristan give Katie new direction and the knowledge to make her dreams come true.

John tells Dora she has to choose between them and Dora is faced with the toughest decision of her life. Full of love, laughter, and happy endings, Charmed is a charming read indeed! The lead story in this Halloween-themed collection by bestselling author Krentz (Absolutely, Positively) is Castle’s " Bridal Jitters, " a futuristic romance about a ghost-hunter and a para-archeologist who consider entering into an " MC, " or marriage of convenience. Historical-romance author Beard’s time-travel novella " Man in the Mirror" follows, in which a medical student goes back to the sixth century to save a badly wounded Arthurian knight. Both stories are ordinary at best. Surprisingly, it’s Krentz’s lesser-known romance fiction pen namesALori Foster (" Tangled Dreams" ) and Eileen Wilks (" Pandora’s Bottle" )Athat deliver the goods. In the kinky (but not tasteless) novella " Tangled Dreams, " a hunky bartender is privy to a young woman’s every sexy thought, and must help the two ghosts sharing her home find the closure they seek. The handsome green-eyed djinnin " Pandora’s Bottle" openly desires his master’s sprightly fianc?e, and it’s a rivalry to the death between both suitors in this magical tale.
