In 1789, James, Viscount Lord Stavely died leaving a widow who fails to grieve for him one iota. He also left behind a legitimate daughter Clarice and a "natural" child, Felicia. Unable to cope with her grief, a distraught Felicia retreats to the garden, standing near her deceased father's favorite statue. When she starts to cry, her tears make contact with the statue. Magically, the statue changes into a flesh and blood being.
Blaic was cursed for abetting the marriage between a fairy and a mortal. Only human tears could release him from his stone prison. All Blaic wants to do is return to his home. However, he needs Felicia to accomplish the deed. As he spends time helping her, he falls in love with the mortal, a taboo amidst his people. She returns his feelings. He spent centuries as a statue after only assisting someone break the taboo. Imagine what will happen if he actively participates in breaking the taboo.
KISSED BY STARLIGHT is a multilayered early regency romance that adds fantasy elements into a complex (at times too complex to follow) but overall charming mix. The protagonists are unique and interesting cross-species' lovers, who will garner reader empathy. The support cast, especially the Cinderella-like malevolent stepmother, seems a bit cartoonish in nature. However, anyone who enjoys a historical fantasy romance should enter the imaginative world of Lynn Bailey where reality remains in a mundane world left behind by the reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorites, Full of Tension and Suspense 11 Jun 2000
By Tasha B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the late 18th century, Felicia Starret's uncertain future takes a turn for the worse when her father, the Viscount Stavely, dies. Because she is his illegitimate daughter, Felicia has been figuratively thrown to the wolves with no one left to protect her. Soon, however, she has the unbelievably good fortune to release, albeit unknowingly, a "fairie" from his stone prison.
This "fairie" (he really hates being called that) is Blaic, a prince of his people, who was cursed after helping his king's daughter escape. Blaic is thrilled when he is released from the stone, and rushes back to the Living Lands, only to find out that the curse is not yet lifted. He still needs Felicia.
As they spend more time together, Felicia and Blaic fall in love, but because Felicia is human, they cannot touch without obligation -- a "fairie" is bound to fulfil the wish of any human they come into physical contact with. This makes for great sexual tension between the two characters, and gives the book that extra zing that warrants five stars.
The novel also works in its basic plot, that of Felicia struggling to live her life on her terms, outside, and in spite of, what everyone thinks of her and tells her about herself.
This book has it all -- spells, girls fallen under enchantments, a wicked stepmother, a charming prince, and a heroine that goes from the cinders to the palace. You will get caught up Felicia's odyssey and the romance between her and Blaic, wish the stepmother to hot, firey place, and be satisfied at the ending. A wonderful escapist read that I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars * Enchanting "Kissed By Starlight" * 11 Jan 2013
By Ace Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In my quest to find and read as many good books as I possibly can, I discovered this well written little gem. Not realizing that this is book two of "The Magical Love" series of books all about the same story-line, I read this one first. This is a stand alone story, but it would be much better if read in order with the other two books in this series. It took time and effort to round them up, but I found the other two books and now plan to read them in order.

Flowers by Moonlight is book one of "The Magical Love" series.
"Kissed By Starlight" is book two and Magic by Daylight is book three.
To understand "Kissed By Starlight" better, you should read "Flowers By Moonlight" first.
All the characters are there and it explains the entire history of everything that happens to Blaic before he's turned to stone and released.

Once upon a time...on a cold snowy March day our heroine, young and beautiful Human Felicia Starret has just left her beloved father's funeral. She finds herself bereft and crying in the family garden over a stone statue of a cloaked man. Her tears magically release our hero, green-eyed and handsome Blaic, an elven Prince, from a curse laid on him by his high king Boadach the Eternal, King of the Living Lands and of all the Realm Beyond the World that Dies, for disobedience to an order. Blaic is now bound to Felicia, a mortal creature owing her a debt of gratitude for releasing him from his curse. This rankled him. He did not want to be beholden to a human. But beholden to her he is. So Blaic begins to find a way to repay Felicia for her gift. At the same time he also has an ulterior motive in store for her. His curse has one more part to break that must be finished before he is fully free. Felicia's tears did released Blaic from the stone, but they didn't fully break the curse. To do that...he must betray her. When this is accomplished Blaic can then return to his Realm a free Prince. At first Blaic is not attracted to Felicia, although he is drawn to her. He tells her right from the beginning not to touch him. His People have a Law that if a Human touches one of them they must serve that mortal. This part of the story is great fun. She listens to him but as time passes in each others company their feelings for one another changes and grows. Soon they want to touch. Soon Blaic is demanding "command me." Felicia falls in love with Blaic. Slowly but surely Blaic seems to be falling in love with Felicia. Or is he?

This lovely romance starts off slowly, then moves right along.
Once it heats up, it never cools down.
I very much enjoyed this romantic, sexy, fantasy faerie tale and recommended it.
It's a keeper! Enjoy!

Grade: B+

P.S. Another good story about a human woman releasing a Prince magically turned to stone is called The Stone Prince ~ 5 Stars. This book is very entertaining and I enjoyed it.
