A Perfect Fairytale: Once Upon a Prince Review & Giveaway

Cara giveaway, reviews; 69 Comments

I have been waiting for a series a long time and the first book is finally here! Rachel Hauck’s new Once Upon a Prince is a dream of a book. From the first page I wanted Susanna to find herself and happiness, and Prince Nathaniel — happy  sigh — is the perfect hero. He’s romantic. He’s honorable. He’s conflicted. And Susanna, instead of trying to steal him away, tries to help him be more the man he was created to be. This book reads like a fairy tale. Ancient kingdom. Beautiful country. Beautiful girl who can’t be chosen to be princess. While I adored the romance, the spiritual thread is what left me sighing with contentment and what has my thoughts returning to the pages. It is a beautiful book — perfect for summer reading.

I loved this book so much I bought a copy to giveaway. Continue to the bottom to participate!


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?

  3. I don’t know…I’ve always thought Duty would be the hardest choice to overcome… Can’t wait to read it!

  4. I read an advanced copy of this book and it shot to the top of my favorites! I agree with you, Cara, that it is wonderful!
    I watched the trailer and agree that one of the themes is the question of him choosing between duty and love.

  5. The prince must choose between duty and love.
    Thanks for giving away a copy of this book. Since I first heard about it, I’ve been wanting to read it. It would be wonderful to win Once Upon A Prince. Thanks for the chance.

  6. He has to choose between everything (wealth, privelege, title) and love.

    I got my local library to order this book and it hasn’t come in yet. I’ve been dying to read it since I finished The Wedding Dress last month! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  7. Cara, thanks so much for this!! So appreciated!

    And thanks to everyone for posting.

    I agree, it’s hard to choose between love and duty. Because duty involves love and love involved duty!


  8. He must choose between duty/money/status and love. I finished reading A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island (my mother bought it for me as a Mother’s Day gift), my daughter (who is an artist) read it in one day and now I am reading it with my husband! Truly enjoyable read; the characters came to life for me and the story itself so heart-warming! I laughed out loud until I nearly cried at Alanna’s first thoughts during the bicycling incident. :X Many blessings to you! XOXOXO

  11. Prince Nathanial has to choose between Money, Duty, Title or give it all up for LOVE. Can’t wait to read this AMAZING book.

  12. He must choose between love and basically what he was born to be, which comes with title and privilege. I would love to read this book, and hoping I can get my hands on it soon! It sounds like a book I would have a hard time putting down. 🙂
