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 a 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?

My Review: When a book captures your attention from the very first chapter, you know its going to be a long night! That is exactly what happened when I started reading Once Upon A Prince. I absolutely loved this historical fictional romance from author, Rachel Hauck. The writing flowed flawlessly, story lines were intriguing, and I absolutely fell in love with each of the characters. I cannot wait to see how the rest of this series plays out. I rooted for Susanna and Nate throughout this adult fairy tale and love the spiritual lesson that it does not matter what we want or where we think we should be, God's ways will prevail. Rachel Hauck has an amazing gift when it comes to storytelling and I think this may be my favorite book of her's to date. If you are looking to add a great new book to your summer reading list, definitely add Once Upon A Prince! You will not regret it! I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
