Today we're celebrating the cover reveal for Sarah Vance-Tompkins, a fellow Inkspell Author and all-around cool person. Isn't it gorgeous??
Drama student Hannah Evans isn't kissing any frogs on her path to find Prince Charming. She's determined to share the perfect first kiss -- with the perfect boy -- in the perfect place -- or she's not kissing at all. When Hannah meets a cute ginger-haired boy in first class lounge in the London airport, she knows he's 'The One.'
Pop star Theo Callahan is on the road to get as far away as possible from his back-stabbing best friend, and his supermodel girlfriend who broke his heart. Until one shy smile from Hannah has him rethinking all of his travel plans.
Theo is smitten, but he's worried she's just a groupie in search of the ultimate selfie. Can Theo learn to trust Hannah in time to share one perfect first kiss, or will Hannah be forced to kiss a frog?
An excerpt from Kisses on a Paper Airplane:
Let’s get real. I had never even kissed a boy. Should I really start with a pop star? I needed to get at least a little practice in first. Julia was right. I needed to kiss my way through a whole bunch of frogs before I attempted to kiss someone as close to perfect as Theo Callahan.
I took a deep breath and ducked out of sight behind a pillar, my fears too overwhelming to face talking to him again.
What if Theo Callahan was my first kiss? Then what would happen?
I closed my eyes and imagined Theo Callahan brushing his lips over mine. Just the thought of it made me jittery, as if I’d downed a triple shot of espresso. My eyes opened wide. My pulse was racing. My heart was in my throat.
There was no way I could kiss Theo Callahan. Not for reals. Not if I had to talk to him, too. Yes, T would be the perfect boy to share my first kiss, but if I had to carry on a coherent conversation with Theo Callahan before, during, and after, it just wasn’t going to happen. Especially when I was going to have to deal with all of “the feels” I was sure kissing would bring. I had enough on my plate dealing with school, my mom’s wedding, and another plane flight after my layover.
I’d seen enough movies to know what a great kiss looked like, but having never been kissed, I had no idea what it would feel like—not just to touch someone’s lips with mine, but I was even more curious about “the feels” Julia mentioned she always had when she kissed a cute boy she’d been crushing on.
I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t talk to Theo Callahan, let alone kiss him.
