From Kiss to Queen put Janet Chapman on my watchlist. It's hilarious, sweet, and more fun than a barrel full of kittens.
I definitely loved that Jane was the one to save the prince and watching those two strong-willed problem solvers go at it was a treat. I also really appreciated the underlying sweetness that underlaid all the fire-forged steel between those two - those two at their worst were leagues ahead of many people at their best. Even when they were passionate about something, even when they had every right to be freaking out, they did it in the more graceful fashion possible.
The politics aspect was also pretty believable, which usually isn't the case with this sort of modern day royalty stories, so that was refreshing as well. What Jane and Mark wanted to get done versus what could get done versus what actually got done - everything tied in properly, even if the idealist wanted everything to be perfect yesterday.
I adored From Kiss to Queen and I'm waiting desperately for the next story - it'd be great to see yet another wolf (with an E!) brought to his knees by Yankee ingenuity (granted, Yankee with a healthy dosing of Scottish pluck).
A new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the Spellbound Falls novels...
Jane Abbott knows that she's nobody special, so instead of looking for romance she's hunting partridge in the Maine woods when a plane crashes into a nearby pond. Diving in to save the pilot, Jane instinctively gives him air by way of a lifesaving kiss, and leads him to safety through a barrage of gunfire.
The handsome stranger returns the favor by kidnapping her.
Clearly no ordinary man, and insisting Jane's life is in danger, Mark spirits his stubborn guardian angel to an aircraft carrier in the Atlantic Ocean. Only then does she discover that the mysterious Mark is actually Prince Markov Lakeland.
Soon to be crowned king of the young country of Shelikova, can Mark persuade Jane that she has what it takes to be his queen?
