Review: Once Upon A Prince by Rachel Hauck
Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess—just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn’t going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life. The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simons Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family’s tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna’s aid under the fabled Lover’s Oak, he is blindsided by love. Their lives are worlds apart. He’s a royal prince. She’s an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation. It’s the ultimate choice: His kingdom or her heart? God’s will or their own?
This is the third book [I think] I’ve read by Ms. Hauck and definitely my favorite. In fact, I can’t wait for my hard copy to arrive so I can reread it ;). [By the time this posts, it may well be in hand :D.]
I absolutely loved Susanna and Nathaniel. I loved the royal background of his country and the pomp and circumstance that goes along with having a prince around.
But I completely adored how well he fit in with her family when no one knew who he was! Loved, loved, loved that!
The problems, as in most romances, seem insurmountable, and, as in most romances, they are overcome. But Ms. Hauck does an absolutely masterful job keeping us in suspense about how exactly they’re going to sort it all out.
I think I know who the heroine of book 2 in this series is going to be and I can’t wait until it comes out. Yes, I’m getting a bit ahead of myself as I read this one about two months before its release, but hey, a girl can be an insatiable reader.
