Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
The right ring but the wrong girl?

Could she really have been broken up with like that? And does everyone have to keep repeating it?

Twelve years wasted on a plan with no love. Susanna should have known better. She would have if she’d ever needed to look past her plan to the marriage but the relationship was comfortable. Until he found the right ring and realized she wasn’t the right girl. REALLY!

Yet, there is this nice guy who keeps popping up. A guy who may only be visiting but seems to keep appearing to rescue Susanna. Sort of like a knight in shinning armor – or a prince charming…

Hott Review:

Seriously, I think I buy these books for the covers. It’s not that Rachel Hauck is a bad author, quite the contrary, but she’s so much more low-key and emotional than I prefer that I just don’t know why else I’d snatch up every one of her books!

I loved the characters and the plot just not the slowness of the book.

Meanwhile, she’s hit a few best seller lists and won an award or two. She is a RITA Finalist, Christy Award Finalist and a Carol Award Winner. Hauck also penned the critically acclaimed Songbird Novels with multi-platinum country artist Sara Evans.

Her book, The Wedding Dress, (no, not the Hallmark movie The Wedding Dress) was named 2013 Romantic Times Inspirational Novel of the Year.

Her release, Once Upon A Prince, received a Starred Review from Publishers Weekly and Booklist.

Of her release, Princess Ever After, Family Fiction said, “Rachel Hauck writes with comedic timing and dramatic flair that underscore the stirring theme of God equipping and legitimizing those He calls to fulfill a purpose.”

Her novella, A March Bride, is a stealth royal story, the finale to Once Upon A Prince, with the marriage of King Nathaniel and Susanna. The novella is part of the Year of Brides collection from Zondervan.

A reader wrote, “I’ve read A March Bride three times. It’s so completely satisfying.”
