Regina Beswick was born to be a princess. But she’s content to be a small-town girl.
When I read Once Upon a Prince, I decided that was the most beautiful cover I had ever seen. (In fact, there’s a story there: when Casey shared the cover on Facebook, I pre-ordered Once Upon a Prince. In paperback.) That book hooked me on Rachel Hauck. This great writer crafts contemporaries that this historical-romance fan loves!
Then came Princess Ever After, and I changed my mind: this is the most beautiful cover I have ever seen.
Rest assured, the story inside had me cracking the book open to see black and white even more often than silver and blue. This story is very well-done. A woman chasing her dream? Yes, please. That woman discovering she’s a long-lost princess? Excellently handled. A love story running up against secrets and political intrigue? Awesome.
As interesting as Regina is, Tanner stole my heart halfway through when a secret from his past comes to light. And the way he wrestled against God for the longest time kept me reading, too. Without giving away too much, I will say that Regina and Tanner allowing their relationship to spark while Regina knew Tanner’s faith was tenuous gave me pause. But the author handles it well. *zips lips*
Even those who normally stick to historicals (like me) will enjoy this tale of a kingdom bowing beneath the weight of a century-old agreement that drags a car-restorer and a driven career man together.
