About Once Upon A Prince:

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?

My Review:
Rachel Hauck's "Once Upon A Prince" is a fun and sweet read.  Susanna is an excellent main character as she is just a typical girl, who wants a happily ever after with her prince.  After being dumped by her boyfriend of twelve years, Susanna does feel a sense of relief although everyone seems to be talking about her.  Susanna knew that he was not THE one, but he was safe and comfortable and provided security that Susanna lacked while growing up.  Susanna had no idea that Nathaniel was a prince and as she struggles to make sense of her life and world, Susanna realizes that she may not be able to control her heart any better than the other areas of her life.
I really enjoyed this book as it is just such a fun and light-hearted read, allowing the reader to escape to a life of royalty and imagining what it would be like to have the love of a prince.  Susanna is such an excellent main character, as she is flawed as we all are and is struggling with everyday issues that we all do as well; thus making her easy to relate to and empathize with.  I loved the details included in this book as it really brought the various scenes to life as they were so vividly described.  The closeness of the families and strong faith of the characters added so much to the story as well.  I am looking forward to the next book in this series!
