Tales From The Treasure Trove VII [MultiFormat]
eBook by Jewels Of The Quill

eBook Category: Romance
eBook Description: Excerpts For TALES FROM THE TREAURE TROVE Volume VII by Jewels Of The Quill Topaz and the Lucky Seven {fantasy romance} by Carrie S. Masek (Dame Topaz): Luck is everything in the kingdom of Brazeland. No one knows this better than Zaida, an abandoned girl-child lucky enough to become the Princess Alma's closest confidant. Sixteen years after their shared birthday, intrigue and magic fill the palace with the arrival of Alma's Betrothal Season. With the help of a curious kitten and a tone-deaf bard, Zaida must protect her princess from false suitors and find the one man worthy of Alma's love. The Turquoise Gown {paranormal historical romance} by Jane Toombs (Dame Turquoise): Is it possible to don a gown that will bring about a mate who's perfect for you? Theodora's step-mother insists the fairy tale is true, but she's certain she's too pudgy to fit into a fairy tale gown, much less inspire any man's undying love. The Amber Tower (The Amber Chronicles, Book 4) {fantasy romance} by Janet Lane Walters (Dame Amber): The second of the lost princes, Prince Rafel, is a rake and has no plans to ever marry. He isn't even sure it's possible to fall in love. He's tried but the emotion has never taken. When he faces the Witch of the Woods, he laughs. He can promise her a few days but love and marriage--no way. He's taken into the amber globe and, as he tries to find where he is, he encounters a hag who imprisons him in an amber tower. To escape, he must choose between one of two young women and fall in love with her. The problem is that one of the women is evil and the other good; one a princess, the other a witch. The princess falls in love with him instantly, but she has none of the witch's assets. Can she manage to enchant Prince Rafel so he falls in love with her? Or can Rafel learn to love? Moonlight Becomes You (Woodcutter's Grim Series--Classic Tales of Horror Retold, Book 4) {romantic paranormal} by Karen Wiesner (Dame Amethyst): For the ten generations since the evil first came to Woodcutter's Grim, the Guardians have sworn an oath to protect the town from the childhood horrors that lurk in the black woods. Without them, the town would be defenseless?and the terrors would escape to the world at large. The first in a four-book miniseries within the Woodcutter's Grim Series, dealing with the curse on the Shaussegeny family. Very loosely based on The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse. When her child becomes deathly ill and none of the doctors and specialists can help him, Heather Rowe rushes to Woodcutter's Grim, hoping the boy's father can explain what's happening. But Lance Shaussegeny both intrigues and terrifies Heather as much as what he's told her of his hometown does. She soon learns that nothing in Woodcutter's Grim--including Lance--is what it seems.

Reviews For TALES FROM THE TREAURE TROVE Volume VII by Jewels Of The Quill 5 Stars! "In Jewels of the Quill's newest Treasure Trove anthology, readers, once again, will be rewarded with four short novels to peak their interests. I always enjoy the Treasure Trove anthologies. The authors have such vivid imaginations. Their characters are easy to connect with and they invoke imagination. It's always hard to pick out a favorite story as they all have a terrific plot to them." ~Readers Favorite "In this installment of the Treasure Trove, four Jewel of the Quill Authors offer imaginative, fairytale fantasies where characters face down the forces of the fantastic, the whimsical and the terrifying in order to be with their true love. In Topaz and the Lucky Seven, Zaida is charged with finding the perfect suitor for the Princess Alma, whom she has protected since they were children, but instead, who finds love with the bodyguard of one of the Princes in competition for Alma's hand. Tarik is battle-scared and brooding, but fiercely loyal, both to his prince and to the girl who has captured his heart. The agony of Zaida's conflict is tangible throughout the story, as her duty forbids her from influencing the princess' decision for her own benefit. Despite this, she is never a character to be pitied. Tarik brings out strength and determination in her that I didn't see at first, which was a pleasant surprise. The characters in this story are fascinating, as is the world of the castle they inhabit. The Turquoise Gown was probably my favorite story in the collection. Although Theodora's stepmother promises her that a certain gown has the magical power to bring her true love, Theodora has already resigned herself to a life of hopeless spinsterhood. Theodora may be lacking experience, but her determination and good heart more than compensate, bringing about changes she never could have believed. I loved the fact that her "magical" transformation was the result of nothing but her own strength of character. While there was no doubt that Theodora would get her Prince Charming in the end, the simple humor and clean writing made this story pleasure to read and I found myself wishing I could hear more about Theodora and the rest of the characters in her new household. The Amber Tower tells the story of Prince Rafel, who falls under the spell of a witch and finds himself transported to a magical kingdom known as Lamau and imprisoned in an amber tower. ?his thoughts on each of the princesses was very interesting, and Rafel himself was an interesting character... Moonlight Becomes You: ?the premise of this story is very original and I am interested to see how each member of the family will eventually find their chosen mate." ~Bridget for The Romance Reviews "Topaz and the Lucky Seven by Carrie S. Masek: A great tale. The Turquoise Gown by Jane Toombs: Delightful. The Amber Tower by Janet Lane Walters: Magical. Moonlight Becomes You by Karen Wiesner: A wonderful story. These are very imaginative, refreshing romantic fantasies. Well written and entertaining?, readers will enjoy finding true love in the Jewel of the Quill realms." ~Harriet Klausner for The Merry Genre Go Round Reviews 4 Stars! "Those Jewels of the Quill are at it again with this well-paced and entertaining anthology. Masek's is the strongest story overall." ~Karen Sweeny-Justice for RT Book Reviews
