Publisher's Summary

An enchanting new royal romance from New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hauck. 

Daffodil Caron is not a princess, even though she once dreamed of being one. After all, she grew up as a playmate to royal princes, running through the halls of Perrigwynn Palace and dining with the queen. But the day she stumbled upon a royal secret, everything changed. 

Flash forward 18 years, and Daffy’s living a sweet, non-royal life. A skilled art curator for the Royal Trust, she has friends, a flat in the heart of the city, and a handsome, successful fiancée. The last person on her mind is Gus, a prince she once called her best mate. 

HRH Prince Augustus is no longer “Prince Pudgy,” as caricaturized by the press, he’s charming and gorgeous, possessing a world-famous smile. But when he’s jilted at the altar by an American heiress as millions of people around the world watched, the spare heir to Lauchtenland’s ancient House of Blue escapes, finding solace on a Florida beach. 

A year as a regular bloke allows him to rethink his purpose. He’s half decided his calling is to pour pints at a tiki bar, rather than serving his country and the Family. 

Until an accident on the beach with a Frisbee changes his course. 

Despite his long hair and beard, Daffy recognizes her prince, and their childhood friendship is renewed. She assures Gus Lauchtenland needs him, giving him the courage to return home. 

When Daffy and Gus find themselves on assignment to Hadsby Castle in preparation for his brother’s wedding, their friendship blooms into affection. 

But Gus cannot, will not, trust his heart again. Daffy’s engaged. And she also remains a royal family outcast because she knows the Queen’s secret. 

When affection grows into love and secrets are exposed, trust is destroyed. Gus must choose which is stronger: the lies of his past or the hope of his future. And Daffy must face every fear to prove she will forever love a prince. 

“Another compelling royal story by the master of princely tales!” (Susan May Warren, USA Today best-selling, RITA award-winning novelist)

My Very First Book by this Author

My very first book by this author. I have been wanting a chance to try her books because I have heard/seen a lot about her books. I listened to the audiobook and I loved it! The narrator was excellent and the story itself was so good. I loved the idea of the young prince Gus and Daffy playing together and was best friends when they were young. It reminded me of the verse in the Bible Galatians 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all. Well skip ahead a few years and they run into each other again. Now Daffy feels like she is not good enough for a Prince but what girl wouldn’t want to be a Princess? A whole lot of things happens in the story that I won’t go into but believe me, you don’t want to miss this contemporary love story. A little mystery, romance, forgiveness and a little spiritual aspect, all of it kept me listening past my bedtime. I’m now ready to listen or read my next Rachel Hauck’s book. I received an audiobook from the author but was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Mediocre Christian novel, silly plot

Ridiculous storyline, with absence and Christian themes. I regret purchasing - silly and boring.

Not to be missed

Hauck has written another captivating book! I loved meeting new characters and seeing references to many other characters and settings from her other books. The story of Prince Gus and Daffy is both relevant and timeless. The struggle with self worth is real. I am eagerly awaiting book 2.

More than just a romance

More than just a romance I have been a fan of Rachel Hauck’s for years. If you have read my previous blog reviews for her books, you know I adore her writing. She blends the natural with the supernatural so wonderfully that you might miss it, until the end of the story. Now when I say “supernatural”, i’m not talking about ghosts. More like encounters of the God kind. Those moments where you find yourself spending time with someone but later wonder if you were just entertaining Angels. Or maybe even, Possibly, Jesus himself. To love a Prince is an enchanting story that I truly believe every woman, from 14 and up, should read. Yes, it has that romance element that has you sighing with contentment as you read each kiss or tender embrace. But it is the underlying message for women that I found most endearing. “You are loved by God and that alone makes you royalty.” Queen Cathrine – To Love a Prince by Rachel Hauck What a touching message for so many to know, learn, and understand. We are loved by our Creator, that makes us special—a royal priesthood. That has to warm your heart, just a little. I know it struck me. ***This book was given to me by the publisher through CelebrateLit. The views expressed are entirely my own and a positive review was not required.

I Need More Than 5 Stars

I have read several books by this author, therefore I could not wait for this book to come out. I was not at all disappointed. In fact she exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed this modern day fairytale. Rachel has a way of crafting her characters that makes you fall in love with them, or at least want them for your best friend. I do not want to give away any of the storyline, but I can say if you have read any of Rachel Hauck's novels you will love this book.

All the feels!

Mrs. Hauck’s best book yet. I loved the story and the theme. The characters sparkled, including the “bad one” who caused so much trouble. Wonderful ending and the narration was brilliant. I listen to audio books almost daily and Louise Lee was stellar. Definitely recommend!

Amazing

This story was fantastic! I wish I could give it more stars across the board! And the Narrator only made it even more beautiful. While the story was packed full of relatable characters, a beautiful kingdom, sweet romance, and secrets, the narrator brought it to life in such an amazing way.
