Avery Truitt aches for true love - the kind she once shared with Prince Colin. Can she dare to hope for happily ever after, or is a fairy-tale ending beyond reach?
College volleyball star Avery Truitt has not seen her former flame, Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom, since he suddenly pushed her away five years ago. But now the sadness of losing her father and the joy of her sister Susanna's pregnancy have brought Avery back to Brighton just in time for Cathedral City's enchanting Christmas season.
Avery knows she can't avoid seeing Colin - now the kingdom's most eligible bachelor - whether or not her heart is ready to relive the pain. But seeing him again might bring her the closure she needs after all this time.
When Colin finds himself at the center of a centuries-old Brighton tradition, he must decide whether to follow the path laid out before him or follow his heart to the only woman for whom he would ring the Pembroke Chapel Bell.
Can Colin convince Avery to meet him at the chapel on Christmas morning - as tradition dictates - or will Avery run back to her St. Simons home and pursue a coaching career, as planned?
In the fourth installment of the Royal Wedding Series, New York Times best-selling novelist Rachel Hauck weaves a charming story of holiday romance as two broken hearts seek the love they once knew.

I usually don't read books under 8 hours, but this book was well worth it, if you've read the other books in the series. Rachel ties up all loose ends with a great epilogue. I do wish hessenberg played a bigger part in this novel. I've already read this book twice!
Oh, yes! I plan to listen to it again & again, because it has become one of my favorite books!
It's captivating, ENCHANTING, and wonderfully written & developed!
It's hard to pick out favorite parts, when the whole book becomes a favorite! I do have to say that I LOVE the beginning scene with the tradition of the Pembroke Chapel bell and the 182 steps leading up to it.
A Royal Christmas Wedding and Story That Will CAPTIVATE You!
I am grateful for the thoroughly well written & delightful wedding series books by Ms. Hauck. I have all of the books on Nook, one on Kindle & all of the Audible books. I was thoroughly excited to gain another great read about Avery /Colin. I read the book first, then am now listening on Audible. I must confess that it misses the mark because of the narrator. Eleni Pappageorge read the first three prince books and did a superb job (especially with voices/accents). And, although this narrator has a lovely voice, all of the characters sound the same. It is a flat read with no voice changes, no southern voice for Susanna/Avery & the family and no Brightonian voices for the prince's, etc. At points of the book where words should be emphasized, they are not. I am utterly disappointed. The book deserves a four, but 2-3 on the narration.
