My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars


Regina Beswick never dreamed of faraway places. She’s happy with her life as a classic car mechanic and owner of a restoration shop.

But an unexpected visitor and the discovery of a fairytale, drawn by her great-grandma, causes Regina to wonder if she might be destined for something more.

Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg, must convince the strong-willed Southerner, Miss Beswick, that she is his country’s long-lost princess. Failure could destroy his reputation and change his nation forever.

As Regina and Tanner face the challenges before them, neither are prepared for love to invade their hearts and change every thing they believe about themselves.

However, when a royal opponent nearly destroys Regina’s future, she must lean into God and trust He has sovereignly brought her to her true and final destiny.

My Review:

I thought this story was basically the same formula as Once Upon a Prince--an ordinary girl becomes a princess, but the twist on this one is that it happens in a different way. I knew I was going to get Christian themes, but a fun, clean story and I wasn't disappointed.

Tanner is sent to America to find the long-lost princess and at first, I couldn't decide if he was going to be stuffy or rebellious. His personality almost seemed stuffy, but he had that long, flowing blonde hair... I really grew to like him and found him to a streak of both in him, but he's very endearing.

Reg/Reggie/Regina is such a fun character! She's a little bit tomboy, as she loves to get her hands dirty and restore old cars, but she can girl it up when needed. She's fiery, sweet, and really down-to-earth. She's got what it takes to run a country, but it means leaving the life and family she knows behind and it's going to take a lot of convincing to do so.

As always, I love the romance and the moments where the sparks fly and I wanted a little more with this one. It is very sweet and I love the way they compliment each other and support one another in their difficult choices.

Content: mild, clean romance; moderate Christian elements and themes (talking to and about God). Clean!
