Series: Thorndike Press Large Print Christian Romance. Hardcover: 527 pages. I am a Christian and a believer in the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and unbelievers alike. I can't remember where or how I learned of this book but by the time I got around to reading it I had no idea what to expect. I really enjoyed it. It is a romance novel without any overt sex (just a few hints of what a man wants to do to his fiance') and it has mystery surrounding the title theme, the wedding dress.

29-year-old Susanna Truitt had a plan, until that got derailed. See, she's the doormat in the relationship. For twelve years, Susanna had waited and waited for her soldier guy, Adam, to propose. How heartbreaking, then, when he tells her he's gotten the "right ring but not the right girl." Yeah, they break up.

So this day, whatever day this is in July, is the worst day AND the best day of Susanna's life. Worst day: she gets dumped. But best day: she meets Nate. On the side of the road, her small, green Cabrio down with a flat tire.

Over the next few days she runs into Nate Kenneth a time or three. Maybe it's because they're on an island and there are only so many places. Susanna lives on sun-kissed St. Simons Island, off Georgia. What else about Susanna? She's a landscape architect, which is a shaky career to have, what with the crap economy forcing everyone to pinch pennies. She also covers shifts at her family's business, the Rib Shack bistro.

Some spoilers.

What she doesn't know yet - but you and I know from jump - is that Nate is actually crown prince to a European island kingdom in the North Sea and formally styled Prince Nathaniel Henry Kenneth Mark Stratton, descendant of a 500-year-old royal family tree.

Nathaniel is on holiday on St. Simons Island with his aide and his security officer, three grown men residing in a hundred-year-old cottage. Nathaniel suspects this may be the last carefree vacay for some time. His father, the king, is failing in health, succumbing to leukemia. The diagnosis is he won't last a year, after which Nathaniel will have to step in his shoes. In the meantime, he means to make the most of what independence he has left.

Once Upon A Prince is first in Rachel Hauck's addictive Royal Wedding series. I'm no swooning spinster or some ponce. I am a rugged hombre, and yet, for the past few weeks, I've been on this binge-reading spree where I've been splitting superhero prose and romances involving royals. I read Once Upon A Prince in one go. I dig how dense and rich the narrative is. It's my first Rachel Hauck book, and absolutely not my last. She knows how to spin a yarn, how to weave in background detail and history in a way that augments the story. I love that Susanna is this lively southern girl, and I love her colorful family and friends, with an extra nod to her wilful mama, her 17-year-old sparkplug of a sister Avery, and Aurora, the homeless ex-politico clairvoyant.

The island kingdom of Brighton easily piqued my curiosity, Hauck describes it so warmly and lovingly. To Susanna, Brighton seems full of enchantment, especially at Christmastime. To spice up the suspense, Hauck introduces a political muddle in the shape of the approaching end of Brighton's century-old entailment with the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. This coming event has raised an uproar, what with warring opinions on the merits and flaws of an independent Hessenberg and the need to liberate Brighton from decades of bailing out Hessenberg from financial hardship. But here's the pickle: Unless Hessenberg can find an heir when the entailment ends, the duchy will become a permanent part of Brighton and Brighton becomes permanently accountable for Hessenberg's debts.

The one panacea is for Nathaniel to marry the gorgeous Lady Genevieve Hawthorne, a daughter of Hessenberg, after which she becomes a royal heir and Hessenberg thus gains its independence.

Thing is, marrying Lady Genevieve is the farthest thing from Nathaniel's mind. On St. Simons Island, off Georgia, he's fallen for our southern girl, so much so that he's volunteered to work at her family's Rib Shack.

- Nathaniel's aide: "Nathaniel, you're the crown prince. You don't need to wait tables at an American barbecue bistro."
- Nathaniel: "I'm not waiting tables. I'm scrubbing floors and cleaning toilets."
- Nathaniel's aide (swearing): "The King's Office will have my job if they get wind of this."

"I'm Susanna Truitt, born on St. Simons, for some purpose. I'm not an accident." Susanna is at the crossroads. She'd just had her heart shattered. Is she ready to take a chance again? This being my first Rachel Hauck book, the author's emphasis on faith comes unexpectedly. Gratifyingly, she shies away from a heavy-handed approach. Susanna - and Nathaniel's - abiding faith is expressed in heartfelt and moving ways. Man, I really enjoyed reading this one. Hauck also has a knack for quirk and levity. Check out this book to see how smoothly she works in a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes and an engagement tailgate party. And, yes, this would make an awesome Hallmark movie. With Maggie Lawson at the lead. Because I'm crushing on her.

OK, I'll admit I'm a pushover for the handsome prince (who is on vacation using an alias) who meets a St. Simon's Island Georgia landscape architect (who's just been dumped by her boyfriend of a dozen years) who "meet-cute" under the "Lover's Oak." This story is romantic fluff of the most enjoyable variety. I cared about Prince Nathaniel and Susanna Truitt from their first meeting. I was delighted to discover this is a Christian romance. It is not heavy-handed. For a woman of faith, I loved that both Prince Nathan and Susanna were devout Christians searching for God's will for their lives --- whether together or apart. The secondary characters (and there were many) were interesting and added greatly to the love story.

I watched the movie version of this book and thought it was cute, but typical Hallmark. When I began reading the book, I thought it would be a quick read, but predictable as well. And while the beginnings and endings matched, there was so much more richness and depth to the story. Rachel Hauck navigated worlds of politics, culture, and faith so convincingly that I had a difficult time ever putting the book down. I particularly loved the way the characters wrestled with God; it felt so much more real than most Christian fiction, so much like my own prayers. It was a balm to my soul to read this gem, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Rachel's books in the future.

Rachel Hauck has a way of writing a modern fairy tale. Susanna finds out that the person she planned on marrying doesn’t want to marry her anymore, her car has a flat tire, and some creepy dude won’t leave her along. Can the day get any better or worse? Then Nate comes by and helps her change the tire on her car. Unknown to Susanna, Nate is the Prince of Brighton. Nate thinks that he has found love at first sight but there is one issue. His father is dying so he may have to leave soon. Then Susanna finds out who Nate really is and that messes everything up.

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.
