Because I thoroughly enjoyed reading first book in the series, Once Upon A Prince, I preordered the Kindle version from Amazon, even though I received an advanced copy via NetGalley. That’s how much I wanted to read this book! Every gal needs a little fairy tale magic in her life. So enough talk – here’s the review…
Meet Regina Beswick. She’s just started a new business as a restoration specialist for classic cars. She couldn’t be happier with her decision to leave Corporate America. She’s got a steady guy friend and she’s happy doing a job she loves.
Enter Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. He is on a quest to find the last living relative of the Hessenberg royal family. He cannot fail nor return without the princess. After much research and a bit of luck, he’s located the last heir in America. He must make her see that she has an obligation to restore Hessenberg to its rightful place, to become its own country again.
Regina is stunned and somewhat intrigued after learning about her family’s history. She must find the courage within herself and in God to face her true destiny and the legacy of her family. She feels the weight of what she must do and she must unravel the mystery surrounding her long lost relatives.
When another threatens to take over the throne, Regina and Tanner must work together to save Hessenberg. But does Regina believe she is the best choice? Wouldn’t it be easier if she just gave up her place and allowed a different government to form? Is this really where God wants her? And what’s Tanner’s place in her heart? How did he get there? Can Regina learn to love and follow her heart, her destiny?
What can I say about Rachel Hauck’s Royal Wedding Series? You have to read it! I absolutely could not wait for this book to come out. Hauck has a way of writing that just draws the reader in and makes you care about the characters. They are not without their faults and fears, but they are full of faith and courage. I felt everything that Regina felt. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is a must read in my opinion. Even though it’s part of a series, you don’t have to have read the first book. Some characters return from Once Upon A Prince, but it is not confusing and does not take away from the overall story.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves fairy tales. I rated this book a 5/5 and I can’t wait to read the next book.
I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an impartial review.
