How to Catch a Prince {Thursday Night Writes}

Hey y'all,

I love to read and give reviews so I am hoping to get back to writing small reviews every Thursday or so. Now to play catch up with books I have read so far this year.

I recently finished up the newest book in the Royal Wedding series by Rachel Hauck. I discovered the author when I received Once Upon a Prince from Netgalley and I have been obsessed with her novels since. I have read a few from her series writing with country star Sarah Evans and her Beaufort series. Rachel Hauck writes beautiful Christian fiction love stories. The novels always evoke deep emotions for me but they also tie in troubles with reliance on the Lord. I have read the first two books, Once Upon a Prince, Princess Ever After, as well as the novella, A March Bride, so I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of the newest book thanks to Netgalley.

Description:
Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever.
Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could've been.
But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife s appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.

My Opinion:
I love a good fairy tale story and it was great to hear more about Prince Stephen and his story as a rugby player and soldier. To me, this story was better than the second novel when we find the long lost heir to the throne of Hessenberg. It was so heartbreaking a lot of the time since he obviously loved Corina but was staying away to protect her feelings and her relationships with her family. Yet again, another great story from Rachel Hauck. 

*I did receive an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley to read for review but yet again, I always provide honest feedback and only feature things I believe in.
