Long ago, in a wonderful castle on a mountain of splendor, a beautiful princess was born. Her parents were the king and queen of the mountain and all the green valley below.
The king and queen loved the little princess even before she was born. On the day she came into the world, the royal couple gave their daughter a very special gift from God - her first kiss. While the princess was growing up, the king and queen kept this precious gift safe in their care.
When the princess was finally grown, the king and queen called her to their side.
"We have something very special to give you," said the queen.
Up, up, up the royal family went to a secret room in a tower of the castle. On an elegant table in the center of the room was the same gift given to the princess long ago ... the kiss.

but its pretty. and there are other books that will address living your life and not waiting around for a man, we read those too.
don't use this as a purity book if your not willing to actually address whatever purity your trying to convey. i know to many people who think they could get pregnant from a kiss and this might make that one aspect of sexuality to important if your not willing to talk, but it can be a great talking book.. if your willing. (also if you look carefully you will find one old man on almost every page with the suiters who seems to be pointing out wisdom about that suitor love that)
The Princess and the Kiss is a delightful and refreshing story of a princess who takes the advice of her parents, the king and queen, treasures her gift from God, the kiss, and then wisely decides upon the man to marry based upon his humble testimony. Prior to her ultimate decision and with the blessing of her parents, she has to carefully weed out other suitors who come to call. These suitors/princes offer her strength/protection, romance and riches. She turns them all away as she discerns that these things will not stand the test of time. She chooses her husband, a common and kind man, who has saved his special kiss just for her who also learns that she has done the same thing. This testimony serves as a confirmation that indeed he is the correct choice whom God sent to her. How divine and lovely! Thank you Amazon for making this book available and affordable.
I know there have been negative reviews on this book but I don't think we should take the book too personal. It's not directly about sex...but, I doubt there's a girl in the world who has had sex before a kiss. Small things lead to big things and I believe this book only shows how we can guide our girls and save them from hurt and heartache and genuinely have a beautiful relationship with "the One" when the time comes for dating and eventually marriage! Our girls deserve the very best because they are precious and so is this book!
