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. -Goodreads
King Nathaniel II of Brighton has his heart set on Susanna Truitt, the small-town American landscaper with flashing eyes and a heartwarming smile.
He would like nothing better than to sweep his Southern Belle love off of her red clay covered feet.
The lords making the laws in Nate's kingdom are determined to uphold an ages old mandate declaring that all marriages into the royal family are to be between "royals only".
To make matters worse, if they are allowed to marry Susanna may be forced to renounce her American citizenship.
Susanna must decide if what she has to give up constitutes a fair trade for all that she will receive.
Nathaniel must also decide if his true loyalties lies with home and country or with his heart.
This is a modern day tale of fair maidens and fetching kings. With both of these young lovers seeking to do what's right in both the eyes of church and state; the choices they face seem untenable.
With the help and advice of those they love and trust, and while "seeking first God's will" for their lives, Susanna, Nate, and their readers really do find the happily ever after they seek...with a dash of Christian magic...of course!
