Three words that perfectly describe A March Bride by Rachel Hacuk.
Part of the A Year of Weddings Novella Collection, Hauck reintroduces characters Susanna Truitt and King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom from her novel Once Upon A Prince. Following the whirlwind that was Susanna and Nathaniel's beautiful love story, their wedding preparations are in full swing! Slated for a large, public wedding in Brighton Kingdom and asked to give up yet one more thing, Susanna starts to question if she's made the right decision to enter into royalty. Who will she be once she's the Queen of Brighton? Will Nathaniel's very public, and very important life completely overshadow her?
King Nathaniel has been distant, dealing with governmental demands and one last request he must make of Susanna, knowing that she has already given up so much. Despite this, his love for her has never wavered, but has Susanna's?
Though only novella length, this sweet story will overwhelm you with intense emotions holding you captive to the story until the end! I'm a huge fan of Hauck's writing and this novella is no exception. I laughed, talked out loud to the characters, and even cried at the end (the good tears of course).
I completely recommend this to fans of romance and real-life fairy tales! You may be frustrated at first, wondering where the Happy Ending is, but don't worry, it will be well worth the wait.

In A March Bride by award-winning author Rachel Hauck, 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.
