Can the magic of the stars heal a tormented soul? Single father Brodie Dunn aims to find out by putting his heart on the line. Artist Celeste Dawson desperately needs a tranquil place where she can rebuild herself. Two months after her husband´s violent death, her career is in jeopardy and she can´t engage in the art that was once her escape from the world.

He suspects Celeste is going to be trouble right from the start, but he can´t ignore the pain in her eyes. On the saddest night of his life, he made a promise under the stars to laugh instead of cry and to help any wounded heart he comes across. He´s sure that philosophy and maybe a little starlight magic will do wonders for Celeste...if his apparent inability to take anything seriously doesn´t drive her mad first.

She fell deeply in love with him in the early days of her childhood. And in return, she captured his heart the moment he first cast his gaze upon her....Renowned artist Mariah Jennings, hired to paint a 13th-century Scottish castle, gets the shock of her life when she encounters the handsome knight who has dominated a lifetime of portraits and sketchbooks. But Sir Cailen Braithnoch is no ordinary ghost, nor did he suffer an ordinary death. Magic of the blackest kind cast a pall over the knights centuries ago.

Best-selling, award-winning author Robin Jones Gunn welcomes us back to the cozy English village of Carlton Heath for a winter romance that will melt your heart. Anna´s first visit to Carlton Heath in England was last May, for the wedding of her cousin Ian to Miranda. The beautiful event ended with a dance under the stars and Anna receiving an unexpected kiss from Peter, the groomsman who caught her eye and now holds her heart. Now, at the invitation of family and friends, Anna is returning to Carlton Heath for Christmas. She has Peter´s recent email to fill her with assurance that he´s looking forward to seeing her again as well. More than his brief words, though, the vivid memory of their unforgettable kiss provides a promise of more to come. Anna, ever the imaginative artist, has been busy painting a romantic conclusion to her holiday visit. Certainly she´s not the only one who has been dreaming of another dance and another kiss. But when she sees Peter again, his intentions seem to shift as speedily as the blustery winter weather. Is Anna´s heart misleading her, or will Father Christmas bestow on her the gift of love for which she has long dreamed? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gemma Dawson.
