A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can’t help but wonder if it’s a sign that their love is not meant to be. Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna’s heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God's plan for her. Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own—right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.
“A March Bride” by Rachel Hauck is fantastic. I was sucked into this story right away. Who wouldn’t want to get to know the story of a king and a future princess? Susanna makes the perfect future princess. This story shows everything that love should be. One person may be giving up more than the other but if you can just find a way to let the other person know that you care and love them too than things will be okay. Hauck brings amazing characters to life in this Novella for me.
Susanna is trying to fit into the royal world. She is starting to think that her fiance King Nathaniel has changed his mind and no longer wants to marry her. She would rather him tell her now than make her keep waiting. When Nathaniel tells Susanna that he doesn’t want to break up with her that the reason he has been distant is because he was working with parliament. Parliament wanted Susanna to renounce her American citizenship before they got married. This makes Susanna want to run away home and think about whether or not she really wants to marry Nathaniel and become a princess of another country.
Nathaniel doesn’t want to lose Susanna. He decides that he wants to show her what she really means to him. Nathaniel takes off to chase after Susanna to try to win her over again. Nathaniel is such a charming king. I think he works hard to be a great King for his country but he also wants to be a great husband to Susanna. He wants to make sure that he doesn’t lose her.
I loved “A March Bride.” I thought this book was amazing. Hauck does a great job bringing loveable characters to her readers. I loved getting to know Susanna and Nathaniel. I found out that the have their own complete novel called “Once Upon a Prince,” so I will definitely be checking this out. I am looking forward to diving in and getting to know Susanna and Nathaniel even more.
