The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simons Island is the queen of his heart.

Their lives are worlds apart. He's a royal prince. She's an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel's coronation.

    I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

    Story
    "Exactly what it seems, but so unexpected!"

    I hesitated buying it because it seemed cliche and just plain silly for a concept. But I found myself falling for the characters. And oddly enough, I was sold on the story. It became believable and sweet, romantic and real. The author created the world of Brighton and incorporated it into our world in such a way as to make the reader accept it without question.

    Of course it's still a bit cliche, and silly, and a bit sappy, but while I don't usually like those things, I did in this story. I loved the characters and felt for them. It was a book that should have been just ok, but that I felt myself really enjoying.

    Also, I thought she incorporated Christianity into it in such a way that made it part of the story. My pet peeve with Christian literature is when the author throws Christianity in as an afterthought. I like all kinds of literature, but if a Christian novel isn't centered on Christ, then what's the point?

    Good writing, great characters, a sweet, romantic easy listen.

    Story
    "No steamy, sizzling hot sex but 100% explosive !!"

    No touching, no sex but a hell of a listening ride; both the writer and the reader did a remarkable job. Eleni Pappageorge brought Rachel Hauck's book to life. An amazing book. Its a keeper.

    "Never Boring- Entrancing!"
    Would you listen to Once Upon a Prince again? Why?

    Yes- loved the story and characters. Enjoyed every minute of this book. Sad it was over. Wish Audible would offer the rest of this series!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    So interesting- travel- characters- love story without being vulgar. Didn't miss any of the normal bad words a lot of books have- tastefully done and a joy to listen to.


    Have you listened to any of Eleni Pappageorge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, too many to name.


    Any additional comments?

    keep writing.............. Audible- please offer the rest of this series!!

    Story
    "A Modern Day Fairytale"
    If you could sum up Once Upon a Prince in three words, what would they be?

    Feel Good Book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Once Upon a Prince?

    The end of course. Every girl's dream.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was very moved by Nate and Suzanna praying together in the beginning. If every relationship started like this, we would have much stronger marriages.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I have already recommended it to a friend.

    Sweet story yet a tad predictable. I enjoyed the Christian overtones. Worth a listen.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book captures the very essence of fairy tales, but also being willing to completely surrender oneself to The Lord. Cannot wait for Book 2.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Once Upon a Prince"

    Wonderful! This is an uplifting, inspirational, modern day fairy tale. If you need a happy, feel good listen, then this is for you. The narrator was quite talented as she went back and forth from the good 'ol southern Georgia drawl to a refined British accent. I picked this book because I so enjoyed The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck. She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors.
