With a hint of the divine woven in, How to Catch a Prince will have you dreaming of fairy tales and miracles.
Stubborn, determined, and on the mend from heart-break, heiress Corina Del Rey is about to take the journey of a life time. Resurfacing after five and a half years weighted down by grief, Corina finds herself facing a secrete from her past that she hasn't quite escaped.
Prince Stephen, brother of King Nathaniel (from Once Upon A Prince) loves rugby more than anything else, though it's become more of an obsession and distraction after coming back from the war. When his past refuses to say in the past, Stephen finds himself facing more than just memories.
Arriving on the royal coattales of Princess Ever After, I was more than ready for this third installment of The Royal Wedding Series. I really enjoyed Corina and Prince Stephen's unique story and loved the dynamics of their interaction together. Stephen's character was the perfect compliment to Corina's determined personality and their spark was undeniable. Of course, I also loved the details of Brighton, Rachel's superb descriptive language, and the openness of the characters true feelings. In some books I find that too often an argument or feeling isn't expressed to a logical conclusion or even to a certain depth, that was not the case with How to Catch a Prince. I found myself in the trenches of their emotions--but not in an overwhelming way.
This is a must read from me! And hey, while you're at it, make sure to grab the other two books in The Royal Wedding Series. You will quickly find yourself lost in a fairy tale world that's not too far from ours.

- Romantic and whimsical by Tima on 2/23/2015
Patience lost the man she thought she was going to marry. So when she inherits her grandmother's boarding house she leaves home with the determination to make a new home for herself. Almost immediately she gets on the wrong side of Jedediah, the local marshall. She bakes him breakfast to ask his forgiveness and a tenuous arrangement is made. Patience will make breakfast for his men and Jedediah will help fix up her boarding house.
The story was sweet. It had a small bit of drama, but mostly it was romantic and fun. The author did a great job of making the two main characters engaging and entertaining. They both had flaws and issues they needed to work out, but this added instead of detracted from the story. It also made them more relatable. The secondary characters really help set the mood for the story and I look forward to reading more about them in the next few books. I liked how messages of forgiveness and faith were subtly woven into the story. If you are looking for a sweet, christian romance with a little bit of mystery than I would definitely recommend this book.

How To Catch A Prince ( Royal Wedding #3 )
by: Rachel Hauck
I loved the cover of How To Catch a Prince, It drew me in right away. Rachel spins of a Royal Wedding fairytale romance and she does not disappoint me, I absolutely loved it. Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom, and the most eligible bachelor, comes to America and meets an American Heiress, Corina Del Rey, falls in love and gets married. Stephen goes off to Afghanistan war and can never forget what happens there. Corina is a journalist and trying to climb the ladder to success, and no one knows the secret of her past. After not seeing Stephen for five and a half years, she thinks she is no longer married. Well, till one day Stephen shows up wanting an annulment. Wow, what a shock. Does Corina still have feelings for her Prince, What will she do? I love the way Rachel Hauck spins spiritual truths through out her story. Corina hears a voice telling her " LOVE WELL" , what does it mean? What has kept them apart all these years and why does Prince Stephen feel he is unworthy of Corina's love. Will she hate him when she finds out Stephen's secret?

- Learning to Love Well by Suzie on 2/12/2015
Two little words that can change lives. Two little words that mean you may not end up with the what your heart desires but you are listening to God. Corina Del Ray has lived the past five and a half years with loss. She’s lost her twin brother. She’s lost the love of her life. She caught her prince once. And lost him. Now she’s coming out of her fog of grief and her mission is simple: to love well.
When Prince Stephen of Brighton turns up in Florida, Corina’s past floods her heart. The memories of her short time with Stephen are sweet, special. But when he asks her for something her heart resists, she creates her own terms. With a determination to love well, Corina decides to go to Brighton and show Stephen she is still in love with him. Prince Stephen is fighting his own demons. His time on the rugby field—the one place he can honor his mates—may be coming to an end. His ankle is not healing like it should. He let go of Corina years ago, but without rugby, what does he have left?
How to Catch a Prince, book three in the Royal Weddings series, quickly became my favorite. Prince Stephen’s and Corina’s love story starts in the middle. They’ve had their whirlwind romance, their separation, and now the reader embarks on the rest of the journey with two broken and bruised people. The hero and heroine are real people with real hurts and fears. King Nathaniel and Susannah make a few appearances in the book for those who have followed the royals through this series.
Rachel Hauck drew me into the world of the royals—the security, the opulence, the media frenzy, the struggle of trying to live a normal life—and what girl doesn’t want to be a princess. With some humor, a little bit of social media, and lots of tension between the couple, this book was hard to put down. You’ll want to be sure to pick this one up on release day—February 24.

- A Winner by Karen on 12/8/2014
I have loved this series from the very beginning and this third book did not disappoint. This book centers around Prince Stephen, the not-so-serious brother of King Nathanial in book one.
Prince Stephen and American Corina Del Ray have a fairytale relationship that goes very wrong. But this story is about so much more than a princess love story. This book gets to the depth of the love and forgivess that God has for us.
The love story, the struggle, and the example these characters are of showing God's forgivess make this my favorite book of the series.
