Saved by a Kiss

Let's Talk Books


From Kiss to QueenMuch is made of one’s first kiss and rightly so.

But what about a kiss that changes, nay, saves your life?

In her new July novel From Kiss to Queen, New York Times Bestselling Author Janet Chapman tells the story of an ordinary gal who after witnessing a fiery plane crash dives in a pond to save the pilot. Back on terra firma, she then saves the young man by way of a lifesaving kiss, only to have him repay her kindness by kidnapping her.

Jane Abbott then finds herself spirited to an aircraft carrier in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. On board, she learns that the mysterious man whose life she has saved is actually Prince Markov Lakeland, soon to be the new king of the young country of Shelikova.

Set in Maine where the author was born, the story chronicles the evolution of a simple young woman who has always considered herself nothing particularly special until she sees herself through the eyes of a handsome prince.

Can Markov convince the American that she has what it takes to be his queen?

And have you ever had a kiss that upended your life?  If so, please share!
