Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can’t help but wonder if it’s a sign that their love is not meant to be.
Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, her heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God’s plan for her.
Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own — right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.
I am a HUGE Nate fan. He is so dreamy and amazing and makes you swoon from here to the moon. In the first book "Once Upon A Prince", you get to know Nate and Susanna and how they came together. Susanna struggled but in the end her love for Nate was stronger than anything that could present itself. In the second book "Princess Ever After" we get to see them again. King Nathaniel shows his compassion and amazing heart every time. Susanna's willingness to help and be there for Reggie makes you love her more.
I love the honesty in the characters of their faith. As Christian's we go through struggles just like everyone else and our faith is constantly challenged. It is so hard to just let go and allow God to be in control when you want to make the outcome your own. This book and really all the books in this series show the realness of that struggle. The peace one feels after finally letting go is depicted perfectly in this book.
I became a fan of Rachel Hauck after reading Once Upon A Prince. With each book I love her writing more. Honestly if you haven't read any of her books then you seriously need to go grab Once Upon A Prince.
