Synsopsis: Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.
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 an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation.
Review: I received a copy of this book from Book Sneeze in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a cute, light little romance, typical of modern day fairy tales, with Christian overtones. This was the first Christian romance book I've read and I wasn't sure how I would like it. This was also the first romance book that I've read that didn't have a single kiss in it till the end. Really?!
I've read some pretty raunchy books, and enjoyed them. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I enjoyed this book just as much. That the raunchiness wasn't necessary for the enjoyment.
However, I will say that there were parts of this book that dragged, but in the end it was nice to see that true love overcomes all. It being a Christian romance, God had a big hand in it.
