In the first bok in the Royal Wedding Series, Rachel Hauck has captured the magic of a fairy tale romance in a modern setting.
The story centers around Susanna Truitt, who falls in love - unknowingly - with a prince who is visiting St. Simon's Island incognito.
The prince falls in love with Susanna, and a whirlwind ensues.
This book is sweet. It's light-hearted. It weaves together all of the great aspects of a storybook fairy tale. It shows romance in the best way.
Could it happen in real life? Eh, who knows. It's just a fun book to read. On the scale of one to five, I give it a four. I'm kinda looking forward to the second book in the series. Hauck is a proficient storyteller I've enjoyed reading.
More About The Book
The Royal Wedding Series Book One
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?
