rating: 3 of 5 stars
Talia has been asleep for 300 years, ala Sleeping Beauty. Jack is bored on vacation in Europe and stumbles across her sleeping village, the beauteous Talia...and can't help kissing her. Although Talia has been wakened by what she believes is "true love's first kiss," the witch/fairy Malvolia is still threatening Talia in her dreams. Told in alternating chapters, A Kiss in Time follows what happens next. Although Talia's transformation in the book is a bit less believable than Jack's, I had great fun reading this book. It was fun seeing Talia figure out the 21st century, especially the behavior and dress of young adults (in modern-day Miami no less!). People certainly don't wear ball gowns anymore! Her diplomatic skills came in handy with Jack's younger sister and mother; Talia managed to bring out the best in everyone and eventually that's what draws Jack to her. (I want to be able to give this 3 1/2 stars.)
