really liked it

Talia is a spoiled brat, AKA princess, who disobeyed her parents’ warning three hundred years ago, touched a spindle, and sent her country into a three century comatose state. Jack is slacker—stuck on a European tour, sick of museums, and intent on finding the beach. Instead he finds Talia, kisses her, and winds up with Her Royal Highness in tow on a fast getaway from the dungeon and a quick flight to Miami.

Not exactly a match made in a fairy tale.

But somehow Talia, with Jack, isn’t so spoiled.

And Jack, with Talia, isn’t as detached and indifferent as his rep.

And the mystery behind that is the real story.

I loved the banter in A Kiss in Time and the characters’ observations of each other: especially our modern day hero’s forthright opinion of Talia, his astonished observations of her impact on his self-absorbed parents, and Talia’s less than stellar opinion of Jack’s so-called former girlfriend.
