A March Bride

Author: Rachel Hauck
Publisher: Zondervan
March 2014
ISBN: 9780310338680
Genre: Contemporary romance novella

Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can’t help but wonder if it’s a sign that their love is not meant to be.

Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, her heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God’s plan for her.

Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own — right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return.

Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.

A MARCH BRIDE is the novella sequel to Once Upon a Prince. I recommend reading these in order as they don’t stand alone. A MARCH BRIDE is also book 4 in A Year of Weddings series.

Ms. Hauck is a hit-or-miss author for me. I read her Royal Weddings series, and it seemed as if Susanna is almost a different character in A MARCH BRIDE. The feisty, argumentive drama queen in Once Upon a Prince is now a insecure, whiny girl, convinced her relationship is over because the king has obligations other than her. I hoped that maybe I would like Susanna better in this book than I did the first one, but I don’t. Nathaniel is still a sweetheart.

The book isn’t long, easily read in a day and does neatly wrap up Once Upon a Prince. There are a lot of five star reviews on Ms. Hauck’s books, so don’t take my word for it. If you’ve loved her Royal Wedding series, then you will love this. Ebook 120 pages.  $3.79.
