New Book from Rachel Hauck | ‘How to Catch a Prince’ Review and Royal Giveaway

About the book:

How to Catch a Prince (Zondervan, February 2015)

She caught her prince once. Can she catch him again?

American heiress Corina Del Rey's life was devastated by war. Every thing she loved was lost. But after five years of grief, she's shed her grave clothes and started over in the sunshine along the Florida coast.

But some things are not so easily forgotten. When a secret from her past confronts her face to face, she realizes she must follow her heart. Even if it cost her everything.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen's pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?

Yet, true love has a destiny all it's own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts.
Or let it be lost forever?

My review:  

This was a very enjoyable romance that had its light moments, but also dealt with some hard things, such as grief and war.  I really liked Corina and her determination to do what God wanted, even though she wasn't quite sure what that was!  I liked Stephen, too, but was frustrated by his being stuck on what happened during the war.  It felt like that got a little repetitive.  There were a lot of romantic moments, both present and in memories as we got a glimpse into their relationship five years ago when they fell in love.  There was a cool supernatural twist in the story that gave it a unique quality different from most stories.  The faith aspect was very well done, with Corina trying to understand what God wants her to do with a phrase she was given, "Love well, " while Stephen believes God and war can't co-exist.  A scene near the end brought me to tears involving Stephen and his feelings of unworthiness and the important message that his worth isn't determined by who he is or what he does or doesn't do, but by the work of his Savior by His death on the cross.  This was the third book in the series and has characters from the first book and mentions ones in the second, but works well as a stand-alone.  I highly recommend this well-written story to fans of romance!

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
