A special thanks to Zondervan and Netgalley for an e-book copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Oh my word, how I loved this book! It was my first novel by Rachel Hauck but it will certainly not be my last. Since I have not read the other two books in the Royal Weddings series, I look forward to reading them as well. I highly recommend this book if you love a good sigh worthy romance. It has a theme of forgiveness: forgiveness of others and of ourselves. Another theme is learning to love well and all that entails. Fabulous read!
Book description (from Amazon):
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?
