Regina Beswick didn't know she was born to be a princess.
She’s content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware that a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother’s hand-painted book of fairy tales.
Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic minister of culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation’s future — and his own.
Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever.
Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide whether she’s destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together — with a little divine intervention — Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.
The second in Rachel Hauck’s Royal Wedding series, Princess Ever After tells another delightfully cute tale of unexpected royalty. Regina Beswick, like most girls, had youthful dreams of becoming a princess, but never actually expected someone like Tanner Burkhardt to arrive proclaiming her legitimate royal heritage and duty. With Tanner’s prodding and persuasion, Regina’s life quickly turns upside-down with this surreal and ostensibly impossible opportunity, and she must quickly determine how to respond to God’s calling. As this story unfolds, Regina handles her challenges with spunk and charm, and her personality easily complements Tanner’s intelligent and affable yet troubled one. Their romance is sweet (albeit rushed and sudden at times), and their spiritual growth believable and encouraging. Like Once Upon a Prince, Princess Ever After is a fun, light, relaxing read, and fans of contemporary romance will be pleased. I certainly enjoyed it, and now I’m looking forward to read the next book in the series, How to Catch a Prince, when it comes out next year.
Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley, I received a copy of Princess Ever After and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
