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?

Loved this book, especially as it kept going. I’m just so sad that Ms. Chapman passed away in 2017. I was really looking forward to Katy/Gunnar’s story.

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: 5 Stars I LOVE Janet Chapman’s books! She knows how to write a great romance novel. And From Kiss to Queen is one of those great novels. She takes a premise that every girl dreams about and makes it her own with a little “Hollywood-esque” twist that somehow makes the story all the more romantic. Wonderfully written, with a hero that’s mysterious, sexy and…oh yeah…a Prince, this adorable little romance is Janet Chapman at her finest. ***I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book gifted to the blog, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

This is Janet's BEST BOOK so far! I was totally charmed by this story!!! She promised to marry her straight contemporary with her touch of magic books and she sure has. I have always had a soft spot for the McBain's and having Katie as Jane's bff just works. I cannot wait to read Gunnar and Katie's book. Jane was just so real and delightful in this story and I fell in love with Mark as well. Loved it!

I won't say much about this book as I don't want to give any spoilers but Ms. Chapman throws the reader a curve that I did not see coming! Pretty funny. The story is fun, although I found Jane Abbot a tiny bit "too" over the top but her actions truly fit her personality so I'll say it: Ms. Chapman was right. The story is about Jane Abbot saving the life of "just Marc". I loved Marc's family and Sister Roberta -- boy did she remind me of the nuns of my youth! I love Ms. Chapman's books and this story had me laughing and sniffling. A good read and I recommend.

Loved this book! I haven't read a thing by Janet Chapman that I haven't loved. The only problem is the wait for the next book.

From Kiss to Queen by Janet Chapman is a standalone novel. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to read Chapman’s new standalone book, which would take place for the most part in a small country in Europe. All I can say after reading From Kiss to Queen is…Wow…I really enjoyed this book, and loved both Mark and Jane, our heroes. Jane Abbot lives in Maine, and was out hunting when she hears a crash and jumps into the lake to save the victim. When she gives him a life saving kiss, Jane’s life will never be the same. Jane helps Mark, who was trapped in his car, and together they must go on the run, as someone is hunting them. Jane grew up in an orphanage, and is somewhat of a loner. With Mark pushing her to safety, she is not sure how to take him, as he is a bit bossy. Since Jane is independent, her and Mark seem to fight a lot. When they travel to a place where there is a phone, Jane figures it’s time to say goodbye to Mark. Everything changes here. Mark refuses to leave Jane behind; since he knows whoever was trying to kill him will go after her to get to him. Jane is not only independent, but she is very stubborn, not to mention a lack of self esteem. She fights with everything she has against Mark, as they take a long trip to his home in Shelikova. In between their disagreements, Mark manages to kiss her a few times, and Jane finds herself with feelings she never had before. What follows is a wonderful slow built romance, that will find Jane in a foreign country and the man she did not really know, was now the heir apparent to the throne in Shelikova. Jane refuses to believe that Mark cares about her, especially since she feels she is nothing. Her stubbornness was a bit annoying at times. Poor Mark, finds himself at his wits end many times, but no matter what he is determined to win her over to be his Queen. I loved his family; from his father, the King,; to his hilarious brothers, who were so much fun. All of them have no idea how to handle Jane, who steps into situations that she feels is unjust, but they all quickly love her as their sister/daughter. I love Mark and Jane together, and all the antics and even dangerous situations were fun. Bravo to Janet Chapman, who has given us a wonderful, entertaining and charming romance that I strongly suggest you read.
