Publisher's Summary

A royal prince. An ordinary girl. An extraordinary royal wedding. 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 breaks up with her instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life. The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simons 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. It's the ultimate choice: his kingdom or her heart? God's will or their own?

Exactly what it seems, but so unexpected!

I hesitated buying it because it seemed cliche and just plain silly for a concept. But I found myself falling for the characters. And oddly enough, I was sold on the story. It became believable and sweet, romantic and real. The author created the world of Brighton and incorporated it into our world in such a way as to make the reader accept it without question.

Of course it's still a bit cliche, and silly, and a bit sappy, but while I don't usually like those things, I did in this story. I loved the characters and felt for them. It was a book that should have been just ok, but that I felt myself really enjoying.

Also, I thought she incorporated Christianity into it in such a way that made it part of the story. My pet peeve with Christian literature is when the author throws Christianity in as an afterthought. I like all kinds of literature, but if a Christian novel isn't centered on Christ, then what's the point?

Good writing, great characters, a sweet, romantic easy listen.

Very nice story

What did you love best about Once Upon a Prince?

I loved the Christian aspect of the story. It was a nice change from so many of the other books out there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Susanna the most. Her Southern spunkiness gave her the courage to never give up.

What about Eleni Pappageorge’s performance did you like?

She did a great job withe all the voices sounding different.Never give up

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Never give up, your dreams can come true.

A good clean love story!

If you are looking for a lighthearted novel that isn't full of sex and lies then this is your book!

Sweet Little Love Story

Sweet story yet a tad predictable. I enjoyed the Christian overtones. Worth a listen.

Outstanding

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book captures the very essence of fairy tales, but also being willing to completely surrender oneself to The Lord. Cannot wait for Book 2.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, BUT GOOD

Would you listen to Once Upon a Prince again? Why?

This story was so very different from what I'm use to reading. Sometimes its nice to know that a prince, king, or billionaire will love someone without having a physical relationship with them. Its nice to read a love story where the main female character hasn't had sex 10 times before the first 3 chapters.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was a real fairy tale. I like that a southern gal gets the prince this time.

Once Upon a Prince

Wonderful! This is an uplifting, inspirational, modern day fairy tale. If you need a happy, feel good listen, then this is for you. The narrator was quite talented as she went back and forth from the good 'ol southern Georgia drawl to a refined British accent. I picked this book because I so enjoyed The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck. She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors.
