Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck

If ever I've read a classic love story, this book was it! A prince, a duchess and an ordinary southern girl from Georgia....a true fairy tale!

Susanna Truitt had a plan for her life. She had worked for years on her dream of being a landscape architect, and waited diligently for her boyfriend of 12 years to return from the Marine's in hopes of a marriage proposal. But all of those dreams shattered to pieces when Adam broke her heart instead of asking for her hand in marriage. He said he found the right ring but not the right girl. Susanna was devastated. Her plan was ruined. 

Shortly after, Susanna meets Nathaniel, a sweet foreigner who comes to her rescue on the side of the road. Their friendship quickly grows into a love for one another even though neither one will admit it. But unbeknownst to Susanna, Nathaniel is actually a prince from Brighton! After learning Nathaniel's true identity, Susanna begins pushing him away, insisting that their worlds are entirely different. Even if Susanna did move to Brighton to be with Nathaniel, it would be against the law to marry him. 

After the passing of Nathaniel's father, Nathaniel is forced to return home to assume responsibility of King. Susanna was stunned to learn that she had been invited to his coronation. Surely King Nathaniel wouldn't abdicate the throne for her sake? But what other reason would he have for inviting her? Will Susanna go to the coronation? 

I absolutely loved this book from the very beginning! It's truly a classic love story. Perhaps a little predictable at times, but the last few chapters did leave me guessing up until the very end! I also loved that this love story is based on Christian principals and includes many Bible references and prayers. Quite a bit different from most secular love stories, but I would feel completely comfortable letting my daughters read this one! :)

I rate this book as 5 stars! I received this book free form Litfuse to give my honest unbiased opinion.
