A March Bride by Rachel Hauck ~ A Contemporary Fiction Book Review

A Year of Weddings, Book 4

About the book:

A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. 
Happily ever after guaranteed.

Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from marrying her prince, King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom.

But when a final request comes from the government for her to renounce her American citizenship, couple with the lack of attendance to her wedding by family and friends, doubt seeds her heart. Is this God’s plan for her?

Losing Susanna is Nathaniel’s greatest fear. Marrying a king means her life will never be her own — right down to her very identity.

When she travels home to Georgia before the wedding, Nathaniel is unsure she’ll return. Gathering his courage, he devices a plan to win his bride all over again and prove her heart is the “kingdom” which he treasures above all.

My thoughts:

Last year I read Once Upon A Prince and totally delighted in the fairy tale romance of Nathaniel and Susanna. Can you imagine falling in love and finding out you are actually dating the future King of Brighton? That story ended just after the engagement but before the wedding took place. It was one of those stories that you knew was destined to be a happily ever after, but you sure would like to read more of the story.

Well, much to my delight A March Bride is a continuation of Susanna and Nathaniel's love story. We pick back up about three weeks before the big wedding. Something has Nathaniel stressed and a bit distant. Susanna of course comes to the wrong conclusion that begins a downward spiral in their relationship. Nathaniel jumps to another conclusion and the misunderstandings just begin to compound.

This is a very quick read but it is packed with so much. There is a great love story, heavy on the romance! But there are also some very big life lessons included. I enjoy Rachel's writing because she tells a great story but she also reminds us through that story that there is more to life than what is in front of us. In A March Bride we are reminded that this is not our home, that our citizenship is meant for heaven and our true bridegroom is the Prince of Peace. I'm really looking forward to the continuation of the Royal Wedding series.
