This book is a meeting of minds. I could not tell who had written which parts of this book containing four stories until I reached the end and read Christina and Connie's end notes. Each story is full of life and well rounded.
The stories all revolve around a medieval bed and its occupants, Strong men and even stronger women who find love and laughter together.
To the two ladies who penned this top rate book - Congratulations and Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Terrific Tales 8 Aug. 2002
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a pretty nice quartet of stories encompassing an old manor and ruin of a castle with one common element tying it all together - the Masterson BED. It is told from the perspective of the modern day curator, Laurel, who is quite devasted that this small museum would be closing. So this, her last tour day, all the stories of the 800 year old 'bed' are being told.
It starts out with the first Masterson. A Knight from the crusades and how the bed came into being in the 1200s - Really liked this story 5*!
Then jumps 300 years to the mid 1500s with another rather impoverished mercenary knight who must find an heiress to pump money into the castle and surrounding town to save his soldiers and serfs - This was wonderfully romantic and exciting - Give this 5*
Then another 300 years later we have the story of the Pip and Ned Masterson in the 1800's when smuggling was ripe along the coast and Pip's efforts to save her brother and thwart the man she lusts for. - This offering a 4-1/2*
It is finally completed with our curator, Laurel, and Max - he being the supposed handy man making the manor house ready for the mysterious 'new' owners - a good story but I can only give this 4* (honestly,I am not a contemporary story person) plus the plot was weaker than the rest.
All in all, this was a very enjoyable quartet of stories telling the 800 year history of 'the bed' and what went on 'once upon a pillow'.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUCH MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE ANTHOLOGY! 26 Jun. 2002
By romance addict - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful group of interconnected stories, centered around a huge, ornately carved bed and its history with the Masterson family. Each story is a little gem all by itself. These are *hot* reads to be sure, but with the sort of to-die-for heroes and heroines you expect in longer books. I was only sad the book was so short. When you read the last story and see how cleverly it all ties together, you just want to go back and start all over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Group of short romantic tales that all tie nicely together 12 Sept. 2002
By TooManyHobbies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very interesting and unique concept for a romance novel. The book starts with guide/historian Laurel Whitney leading a tour group through the Masterson Manor. The highlight of the tour is the Masterson Bed, which has been "well" used for centuries by the Masterson heirs.
Laurel entertains the visitors to the house with romantic tales of the beds previous owners. There is a story of a medieval knight, an Elizabethan scamp, and a "to die for" army Captain. The last story of the book ends up being about Laurel herself and her own encounter with the "bed".
This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. It was lighthearted, funny, a pleasure to read. Each individual story was short (only about 75 pages), but the characters were well developed and plots (while not complex) where well thought out and engaging. The three historical stories were not related to each other (except that they all shared the same bed), but everything was tied nicely together through Laurel recounting of the tales.
The cost of the book is a little pricey for its length, but after reading the story(s) I was not sorry for shelling out the $$$ bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Emotional Depth 24 Aug. 2003
By Trisha A. Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In Once Upon A Pillow expert novelists Christina Dodd and Connie Brockway have taken an unusual idea and created a provocative anthology. Covering medieval, Elizabethan, Regency and contemporary times, they follow the passionate and amusing 800-year history of a very special bed.

Every story is fast-paced, entertaining and full of surprising emotional depth, given that they average only 80 pages each. Characters are brought to life with humor and passion, and their witty repartee is fun to read.
Though I prefer novel-length treatment of stories, I enjoyed this anthology more than I'd have ever expected. Dodd and Brockway have a way of turning anything they write into a delightful adventure through the fascinating range of human emotions, culminating in a satisfying feeling of genuine love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curl your toes in bed with this one 24 Jan. 2003
By Desmond Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The joint collaboration between best-selling romance marvels Christina Dodd and Connie Brockway yields a fruitful Once Upon a Pillow in which four frothy romance spanning from 13th century to Victorian, Regency right up to contemporary times are interconnected through a majestic poster-bed. Masterson Manor now functioning as a small museum in Devon-Cornwall border is the pride of curator Laurel Whitney. However the bleak financial downturns has made it difficult to survive and Laurel is sadly giving a last tour as a guide, spinning tales of romance that the Masterson bed was famous for. Starting with the crusader knight who made the bed, Sir Nicholas who tames his headstrong wife Lady Jocelyn, a roguish mercenary knight who mistakenly seduces the wrong heiress to the passionate romance between a smuggler's sister and a captain in pursuit, Ms. Dodd and Ms. Brockway keeps the readers in a light schmaltzy mood that will fire their impulses to curl their toes in bed with a hot read.
