Publisher Comments:

Talia fell under a spell. . . .
Jack broke the curse.

I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic. . . .

I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.

I awakened in the same place but in another time—to a stranger's soft kiss.

I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen.

Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!

Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewels. . . . The good news: My parents will freak!

Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?


From an acclaimed author comes a contemporary and original retelling of Sleeping Beauty, amplified with originality, pitch-perfect characters, and a fast-paced Miami backdrop.

Alex Flinn does a wonderful job of writing this story and gaining the readers interest with alternating points of view between the 2 main characters and some humor thrown in to create a wonderful spin on the story of Sleeping Beauty in which the princess wakes up after 300 years and must gain the love of the boy who kissed her to prove she fulfilled the curse and gain her happily ever after.
