Book Review - How To Catch A Prince


American heiress Corina Del Rey's life was devastated by war. Every thing she loved was lost. But after five years of grief, she's shed her grave clothes and started over in the sunshine along the Florida coast.

But some things are not so easily forgotten. When a secret from her past confronts her face to face, she realizes she must follow her heart. Even if it cost her everything.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen's pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?

Yet, true love has a destiny all it's own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts.
Or let it be lost forever?

This is such a beautiful, almost fairy-tale like, romance. Just absolutely the type that brings you into the story and never lets you go. It's a book you'll love to escape into and won't want to leave after the last page. The gorgeous cover is the beginning of the beautiful story within!

Corina was married to a prince but they married against the laws of his country and so the marriage was annulled, much to her sorrow. Add the sorrow of losing her brother in the war and this affects her whole family and they fall apart. She is trying to move forward and get on with her life when Stephen, her prince, shows up and tells her that they are actually still married and he needs an annulment  before his pending coronation.

Corina is trying to find out answers as to why her brother died, so there's that aspect to the story as well as the love story between her and Stephen. There's also the story of Stephen who is trying to recover from the war he served in and the losses he encountered there. This story is rich with stories that draw you in and keep you there. 

I especially loved the beautiful spiritual story woven throughout. We see Corina, who is solid in her faith, and compared to Stephen, who is struggling with his. It's beautiful to see redemption and restoration in this book. I loved how we're reminded that we are daughters and sons of the most high King. It's just a beautiful thread that runs through.

I loved this book and I know you will, too. It's just a really great romance and such an enjoyable read! I highly recommend this and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
