*Starred Review* Susanna has been faithful to Adam for 12 years, through high school, college, and his four tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now Adam wants to meet her at a romantic beach, and Susanna just knows it’s to pop the question. But not so. Emotionally devastated, Susanna drives away, only to have a flat tire in the ironic location of the fabled Lover’s Oak. To add to her stress, a rough-looking man won’t leave her alone. Nathaniel stops to help. He hasn’t had a serious girlfriend in 10 years, and it’s love at first sight. There’s a complication, however. Nathaniel is a royal prince, next in line to be the king of Brighton Kingdom. And since his father is dying, Nathaniel has little time to find a suitable bride and begin producing heirs. Hauck has created an enchanting novel featuring a charming hero and heroine as well as interesting secondary characters, such as a woman who leaves her job as a lobbyist to live in a tent in the woods. This modern fairy tale, told from a faith-based perspective, is the first book in the Royal Wedding series. --Shelley Mosley

Susanna Truitt moves back to her home on St. Simon's Island when her job in Atlanta ends. As the story begins, her longtime boyfriend, Adam, is home from a tour with the Marines. They are meeting on the beach and she is expecting a proposal but all she gets is a breakup. She throws herself into trying to get her job as a landscape architect going and also helps out with her family's restaurant, the Rib Shack.
Prince Nathaniel of the Kingdom of Brighton is spending vacation time at his family's American vacation cottage. He and Susanna met near Lover's Oak in nearby Brunswick when she is trying to get a shady looking man to leave her alone. She is stuck with a flat tire where she had hoped that Adam would propose to her. Nathaniel comes along and helps her out.
Later Nathaniel and Susanna would see each other at a fundraiser for the hospital right after she gets a call that her father has been taken to the hospital. Nathaniel once more steps up to help her. This time he gets her to the hospital. At this point, she doesn't know that he is a prince.
The two are drawn to each other and but there are obstacles to prevent their happily ever after. His country does not allow a royal to marry a person from another country. Susanna has her commitments as well helping her family with the restaurant and she is very close to her parents and sister. The wonderful thing that Susanna and Nathaniel have in common is their faith as they work through their situation is relying on God's guidance. This is another inspiring and great story of faith and love by Rachel Hauck.
I think this is a very sweet tale of two people trying to get to know each other. Then everything seems to come their way. A dying parent, a hidden identity, and a kingdom. What are these two love birds to do? I think Susanna and Nate are two characters that are written very well. I really enjoyed getting to know them and their stories.
Hauck writes such beautiful descriptions. Brighton has such beautiful structures and landscapes. I feel like Hauck really puts her soul into her books with the characters and the setting. Who wouldn’t want to escape to Brighton in their minds. I wish I had a gorgeous place to escape to everyday like that. I was swept away. I think this book is great for any woman who just wants to get swept away in romance and love.
I love the fact that the book didn't hide the challenge that come to being a celebrity nor the hardship of being in a relationship with someone famous.
I love the humility in the Prince character, being able to clean someone toilets and be happy about it, prove you know who you are.
I like it a lot.
I definetely recommend the book to anyone who want to enjoy a princess-like romance with a christian perspective.
