By Janet Chapman
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?
This is my first book by the author and she states that it is meant to be a straight contemporary romance (she mostly writes books with a touch of magic in it). Sorry, I have to disagree, it was pretty magical for me. I adore the over the top story with it’s fairytale references, The Frog Prince (albeit with reversed roles) comes to my mind. If you like realistic romance, this won’t be your book, but it transported me by plane, submarine and airplane carrier to another world. I was smiling through the whole book.
