lower power The magic of fantasy brushes the four novellas of Once Upon a Rose with added dimension as four gifted storytellers Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan and Marianne Willman join forces in this evocative anthology.

The frozen island kingdom Deidre rules is as ice-locked as her heart, and only the strongest of warriors, Kylar of Mrydon, can free both the land and queen in Roberts' rapturous tale of a Winter Rose encased in ice until love's power burns through.

The flowery theme continues in Gregory's The Rose and the Sword, Langan's The Roses of Glenross and Willman's The Fairest Rose. Each gifted writer adds her tale to the bouquet with a blend of unique storytelling that is as subtly nuanced and seductively overpowering as the bouquet of roses that is its namesake.

Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
