A March Bride by Rachel Hauck
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Genre: Christian Romance
Book Description: 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, her 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.
My thoughts: This story started out slow for me. I had a hard time finding myself connecting to the characters and the story. I knew that there was something that I was missing. This story has it's beginnings in another book Once Upon a Prince. While this book is part of the Bride's series, it can be read without reading the first. Once Upon a Prince is on my TBR shelf and I look forward to reading it. I hope to gain a new love and understanding of this book when I read it.
Suzanna and Nathaniel are both good people. He may be a King, and she may be an average American, but they both have a strong Christian faith. That is part of the glue for them as people and a couple. It is to Him that they turn to find answers to their problems or questions.
This book is squeaky clean, other than some kissing. It's a novella, so it's a very quick read.
