Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck: Adult Review

Once Upon a Prince (Royal Wedding #1) by Rachel Hauck. May 2013. Zondervan. Goodreads.

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. Simon’s 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?

I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this book yet! I LOVED it! The day I got Once Upon a Prince from NetGalley I stopped what I was reading and devoured it. Come on, it had the word Prince in it.

Poor Susanna had it rough when her long time boyfriend, and I mean LONG… 14 years long, broke up with her. This happens on the first page so I’m not spoiling anything. Then along comes Nathaniel all charming and thoughtful. I love modern fairy tales. The best part of this book is that Susanna didn’t know Nate was a prince when they met. The things her mom had him do at their diner was just hilarious.

If hearing the word Prince creates butterflies in your stomach, like it does for me, than Once Upon a Prince is a must read for you! Now I need to go read some of Rachel’s other books.
