"How to Catch a Prince" by Rachel Hauck

About this book:

  “An American heiress and a crown prince seem destined to be together. Will the devastation of war keep them apart forever?
  American heiress Corina Del Rey caught her prince once. But the tragedy of war kept her too long in a fog of grief. Now she’s shifting her life forward, reigniting her career as a journalist. Still, nothing can relieve her of the secret and the love she carries in her soul.
  Prince Stephen of Brighton is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors and a star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life. His days in Afghanistan with the Royal Air Command will mark him forever. And he can’t shake their dark shadow.
  But when his brother, King Nathaniel, confronts him with a document the prince thought long buried and forgotten, Stephen is forced to face the pain of his past and the love he left behind.
  With a little heavenly help, Prince Stephen and Corina embark on a journey of truth. But when the secrets are revealed, can they overcome, move forward, and find love again?”

My personal Rating-
Ahh. There’s just something about royals that pikes my interest. Maybe it’s the fact I’m American and we obviously don’t have royalty. (Shout out to those reading this blog outside of the USA! :D ) Miss Rachel Hauck has written some fun novels for the “Royal Weddings” series (which I still haven’t posted my review of Book number one or two. *sigh*) and while the kisses got to be a bit much, the couple kissing were technically married. So it depends on what your opinion is of that. The Spiritual content at the end made my rating little higher. :)   

See y’all on Wednesday with another new review!
