An American heiress and a crown prince thought their secret marriage was annulled years ago—but now they must come face to face with their past. The third volume in the captivating Royal Wedding series from New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hauck.
Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder, partly to distract herself from her dissolving family.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom came to America to escape responsibility, but what he found complicates his life more than ever. He has tried to move on from his tragic experiences in Afghanistan. Now a star rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could've been.
But when an unexpected notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife's appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, Prince Stephen is shocked. He thought the secret marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.
A modern fairy tale with a twist, Rachel Hauck’s How to Catch a Prince is a charming romantic read.

characters learned to "love well" and to share it with others. I look forward to other stories from this author.
The journey to Brighton Kingdom and time there is like a walk of faith for Corina. Things happen that should make her turn around and go home but yet at just the right time, other things happen to let her know that she is on the right path set up by God. Sometimes our humanness tells us to give up on a situation but faith says no, keep going. A beautiful story that is more than just romantic love but also God's love instilled into those of us that have allowed Him into our heart. We are reminded that we are to love and give it to God so that His will be done and not ours. On another note, I also got a kick out of Corina's love of American football over Rugby, especially her love of the University of Georgia Bulldogs. I grew up in Georgia and am a graduate of UGA. Haha! Rachel Hauck is one of my favorite authors and I have read most all of her books. All have been great and spiritually uplifting as well. This is another winner!
STORY: Corina Del Ray is grieving. Her twin brother’s death shattered her family and now they are a shell of what they used to be. She’s trying to move on after a move to Florida and pursuing her journalism career, but everything about her past comes right back to the surface when Prince Stephen finds her. Married in secret to the prince once upon a time, Corina is shocked to learn that they are still married. The marriage was never annulled. In America at the order of his brother, Stephen is not completely over events of the past either. Stumbling in his rugby career, Stephen feels lost while recovering from an injury. The weight of a secret he still carries and coupled with seeing the woman who still owns his heart isn’t helping.
How to Catch a Prince, by Rachel Hauck | Book Review
I can still remember when this series made it debut and some readers feeling skeptical about its premise. Fairytale lover I am, likely I just had stars in my eyes as I consumed that first book. Disappointment is not a word I associate with this series. The final book follows that same path. Beautiful covers translate to an exquisite story, waiting inside. The resounding theme in How to Catch a Prince is Corina’s conviction to not give up in the stoic face of defeat but instead to love well. Any of the falling-in-love after marriage stories that I’ve read have been favorites. This one is no different. Beautifully told, this book is easily one of my very favorite contemporaries. The romance is so much richer because of the past these character’s share.
Secrets do play a pivotal part in the story, however in spite of what the normal clichés would have us believe, the eventual reveal doesn’t end the same way most do. Naturally there is separation, yet it’s not because of an I-don’t-ever-want-to-see-you-again meltdown. The amount of books that play this card is exhausting. Instead, Hauck has a classier solution and it makes the eventual reunion all the more rewarding and emotionally healthy. If you’ve read about this book and recognize Stephen, you’d be right. He’s the brother of King Nathanial from book one. Because of this, we get to hang out with our favorite King and wife, Susannah, which is lovely. Stephen and Corina have their own love story, and how it evolves, grows and changes doesn't let the past define it, but rather the present.
All that’s left to say is, go forth and read "How to Catch a Prince."
Bittersweet as it is to say goodbye to this world, these books are not ones I’ll easily give up. They’re enchanting, romantic and each couple’s love story is poignant and purposeful. Stephen had to learn how to forgive himself before he could love his wife without regrets. The challenge for Corina was moving on and healing so that she could love well..
Each vignette is beautiful, and if ever there’s a story that “comes off the pages,” I do believe this is it.
Sincere thanks to the publisher for providing a complimentary ARC copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

American heiress, Corina Del Rey, has a secret that no one knows. She was once married to a prince who she was in love with, but that was a long time ago. The marriage was annulled and she can go on with her life, except she still can’t escape her family falling part after her brother was killed in action. Her journalistic tenacity says that there’s a story there and just wants to know how and why her brother died. She doubts she’ll ever see the prince again.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a war-veteran-turned-star-professional-rugby-player. Although he tries to forget the past tragedies that came with war, he is still haunted by a secret and survivor’s guilt. Just as he determines to grow up and take his place as prince, he receives a notice saying that he is still married. If he wants the marriage to be annulled, he and his wife will need to make an appearance before the courts. What will happen now? Can Stephen track down Corina in time before his coronation? If he finds her, can he tell her the truth about why he left her? Can she ever forgive him? Can he ever forgive himself?
Every time she comes out with a new book I snatch it up quickly. She is just one of those authors that catches my attention and keeps it throughout the entire book.
HOW TO CATCH A PRINCE is the third book in the Royal Wedding Series and brings all of the story lines together so well. I love how you are still learning more of the characters stories from the previous books. She draws them in so marvellously.
I love the inspiration this book brings and the christian aspect!
Loved the characters and the settings. Corina Del Rey and Prince Stephen are the main characters and there's a smorgasbord of side people that add depth and intricacies.
This is a novel you could read on the beach quickly. And read through again slowly to savour the hints of complexity. Keeper shelf placement because I need the reminder to love well. Bravo, Ms. Hauck!
