Title: PRINCESS EVER AFTER
Author: Rachel Hauck
February 2014Genre: Contemporary romance
Regina Beswick was born to be a princess.
But she's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairytales.
Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation's future---and his own.
Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she's destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together---with a little divine intervention---Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.
Okay, if you’ve watched The Princess Diaries then you’ve read PRINCESS EVER AFTER, with names and other information changed. This is the second book in The Royal Wedding Series. I didn’t read the first book, Once Upon a Prince, but I have it in my to-be-read pile.
You do have to suspend belief in order to read PRINCESS EVER AFTER. Reggie is a CPA turned mechanic to restore old cars, and she’s just landed a coveted car to restore. Her sometimes on, sometimes off boyfriend is pushing her to go into politics (and give up mechanics) and then suddenly she finds out that she’s a real life princess. What’s a girl to do?
Ms. Hauck is a hit and miss author for me. This book was a miss. It was very well-written, but it didn’t grab my interest and make me want to keep reading. If you love Ms. Hauck’s books, or The Princess Diaries, then you will love PRINCESS EVER AFTER. Give it a look and see if its for you.
$14.99. 368 pages.
