My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
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.
My Review:

I loved getting a little more of Susanna and Nathaniel's story. Life in the palace would be tough, especially if that's not how you were raised. As much as I would love to trade places with Susanna, the reality of princess life would be difficult to adjust to. I can't imagine everyone watching everything I wear, everywhere I go, everything I say and do. I thought Susanna handled things well, considering.

Is love enough to keep this couple together? Sometimes the sacrifices in life require a lot of self-evaluation, pondering, and determination. Digging deep to decide what's really important is something Susanna must do. I enjoyed the path and watching her come to a decision about her future.

I really do like this couple and thought this was a great addition to the both the Royal Weddings series, as well as the A Year of Weddings Novellas.
Content: mild, clean romance; moderate Christian themes and elements (talking to and about God). Clean!
