Description: 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 have been eager to read another book by Rachel Hauck ever since Once Upon a Prince. I spent part of a Sunday not only reading a book by Hauck, but also reading a sequel to the aforementioned book.
This story seemed to be based on a question: Even through every girl wants to be a princess, would she really want the job if she got it? This is a realistic look at what being a princess might mean as well as all the pressure that involves.
I loved Susanna almost as much in this book as I did in the last book. I must admit, it was a little hard, albeit understandable, to see her question if she really wanted to marry Nate. I understood her fears and doubts about giving up some of the things the mean the most to her. Her internal struggle is one that I could see a real person having when they are faced with the realities of being a princess.
Nate was as amazing as he was in the first book. His sweetness, understanding, and godliness are such wonderful characteristics. He is the kind of guy I want to find someday.
The story was a little rushed at the end, but good nonetheless. I don’t think that it would be as good as a stand-alone story. I highly recommend you read Once Upon a Prince first.
I highly recommend this story to those who loved Once Upon a Prince, like princess stories, and who enjoy romance.
I received this book from Zondervan via BookLook in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
