Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck

Goodreads | Amazon
Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a prince – 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?

Rachel Hauck’s Once Upon a Prince caught my attention from the get-go. In a society fascinated with royal weddings, it’s hard to resist a plot in which a prince falls for an ordinary woman. Although it is fairly reminiscent of the movie, The Prince and Me, Hauck’s modern day fairytale was a delightfully addictive novel to read. I couldn’t put it down. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a light, relaxing read full of drama and romance. I greatly appreciate BookSneeze for providing me with yet another free copy of a novel and the opportunity to review it.
