Once Upon A Prince
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?
If you liked the Royal Diaries series then you'll like this book. Even though Susanna doesn't find out that "Nate" is a prince right away the story revolves around a simple American girl and a European prince. There is a little bit of misunderstanding and a lot of needing to trust God.
I found myself feeling like the omniscient third person narrator at times during the story because it jumps between Nate and Susanna apart and while they don't know what's going on, you do. It was an interesting place to be especially as Susanna's world is falling apart and she doesn't know what will happen next, while I could see the bigger picture. Made me think about how we see life in general.
I'll be on the lookout of the next book in this series! You can purchase your own copy here and read other reviews.
