Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.
Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess---just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn’t going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.
The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon’s Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family’s tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna’s aid under the fabled Lover’s Oak, he is blindsided by love.
Their lives are worlds apart. He’s a royal prince. She’s a ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation.
Elfhunter was a huge WOW! The cover really got me excited and reading the blurb had me turning pages quickly. The two main characters, cousins Gaelen and Nelwyn, are amazing leads. The actions they make are brave, adventurous, and honorable. I can really connect to both of them which is kind of hard for fantasy books, in my opinion. Throughout the whole book, I was rooting for them and it's a never-ending ride.
The world Marks creates is magnificent. He describes the world in perfect and extensive detail and I felt pulled into the story even more. People are saying he writes like J.R.R. Tolkien and I completely agree! He has a great way of storytelling that captures readers and doesn't let them go. I'm definitely picking up other books by Marks. 100% love this book and want to keep reading his works!
