"A "fractured-fairytale" combining humor and passion"

KISSING FROGS is an imaginative and light-hearted twist to the tale of the Frog Prince. Ms. Altom presents readers with a "fractured-fairytale" romance containing a seductive combination of humor and passion.

A few years after her disastrous presentation on frogs to the scientific community, Biologist Lucy Gordon is working as a teacher and soon to be engaged to the Duke. While driving home, she swerves to miss a frog on the road and crashes. When she lifts the frog she missed hitting with the car, she is astounded to see she has discovered a new species and in her excitement, she kisses the frog. She suddenly finds herself with a lapful of naked man who claims he is a prince cursed as an enchanted frog.

Prince Wolfe must convince Lucy to fall in love with him before the full moon or he will revert to an eternity as a frog. He is astounded that this wench would not fall immediately in love with him and he must persuade her. Oh and how he tries to convince her! When seduction doesn't work, he relies on what he learns on 'talk TV' about what a woman wants.

Although set in an imaginary future, this is purely a fantasy plot for enjoyment and not a serious sci-fi setting. Don't look for technical details, just let yourself go and enjoy an imaginary escapade where the only sure thing is love will triumph in the end.

Biologist Lucy Gordon had one chance in a million to capture her every dream. Money. Fame. And most important—finally earning her father’s respect. It all depended upon her discovering a new species of frog. Then one day, by a miraculous twist of fate, that frog found her.

Consumed with joy, she kissed the little bugger smack dab on his lips. Poof!

As magically as he’d appeared, he was gone. In his place was over two hundred pounds of wholly naked, wholly medieval bad-boy prince who claimed she’d saved him from an amphibian eternity. But Lucy didn’t want a prince; she wanted her frog. She wanted her dreams. Until the gorgeous prince returned her kiss and her soul melted, and her choice became less clear. With the power to transform Wolfe back into a wart-covered creature, Lucy had to choose her own happily ever after: Fame, money, and respect? Or love?
