Overview

A March Bride by Rachel Hauck

A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.

Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can’t help but wonder if it’s a sign that their love is not meant to be.

Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna’s heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God's plan for her.

Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own—right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.

"Participating in A Year of Weddings was all the fun of being a bridesmaid—without the hassle of pantyhose and dyed shoes! This collection of heartfelt, romantic stories will bring back memories of weddings past, and for others, stir up new hopes of weddings yet to come—all while directing readers to the true Lover of their souls. Here comes the bride!" —Betsy St. Amant, author of A February Bride

I thought Once Upon a Prince was fantastic and I’m happy to see a follow-up for Susanna and Nate. It’s was nice to see what happened to them after they fought to be able to get married – the changes that have to be made and the sacrifices that Susanna has to make to marry a king. It’s pretty much a must to have read Once Upon a Prince, but considering what a wonderful book it was I don’t think anyone should hesitate. If you dream of meeting your own Prince Charming or loved the idea of Prince William and Kate, then this is definitely the series for you. You can’t find a better hero than Nate … be prepared for him to once again sweep you off your feet. Full review available at Romantic Reads and Such on wordpress.

After reading this novella, I found out that there is a full length novel about these characters that came first. While usually that would leave me with answers to questions, I can say that I was able to follow this story extremely well considering I haven’t read that one. I have come to really enjoy these short stories in the A Year of Weddings series because they are short, sweet, and amazingly well written. Usually, I don’t enjoy Christian books, but this series is just done amazing. I came to really love Susanna’s character in this book because she just comes off as the girl next door. An all American girl who was just looking for her Prince Charming and come to find out, she did. I also enjoyed Nate’s character as well. I think that they both were able to play off of each other and work together quite well. I enjoyed that Susanna and Nate had to fight for what they wanted, what they both wanted. To me, the battles that they went through in this book just made it all the more realistic to me. I haven’t read any other books by this author but I can say with honesty, that I will be sure to check into her books in the future.

If you read Once Upon a Prince, this novella is a must-read! In A March Bride, Susanna and Nathaniel return as they prepare for their upcoming nuptials. Of course, I loved this novella, probably because Once Upon a Prince is currently my favorite contemporary novel, and I’ve been dying to read more about this couple. Three weeks until the wedding, and Susanna gets news that, after everything she has already done to become the princess of another nation, it is not enough; they want more. Her citizenship, to be specific. And not just that, but also to renounce her American citizenship. Sounds a little extreme, no? That revelation would cause you to have doubts, too, right? Right. So, of course, Susanna is rocked by this last hurdle that separates her from marrying the man she loves. Susanna must decide if she is willing to give everything up. And Nathaniel is desperate to do anything to keep her. Will their love withstand this last obstacle? Can Nathaniel prove his love is strong and enduring? Again, I loved this novella. It is a short and sweet story, and there is, of course, a promised happy ending.

March Bride Rachel Hauck Book Summary: In this sweet romance by award-winning author Rachel Hauck, royal wedding plans are in the air, but the bride is being asked to give up so much for her new life that her groom-to-be is worried she may not return from her most recent visit home. A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can't help but wonder if it's a sign that their love is not meant to be. Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She'll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna's heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God's plan for her. Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own-right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon's Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won't return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all. Book Revie: I have not had the privilege of reading Once Upon A Prince yet but this book is enough of a stand alone that it is not necessary to read the other to understand what is going on. Ms. Hauck does a great job of linking this novella to her book. It was woven well into the fabric without sounding like a commercial for the full length novel. I really got into the story line and felt like I was part of the storyline. Royal watching from the public things and a friend for all the turmoil of Susanna giving up her American citizenship. I look forward to many more books by Ms. Hauck.  I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Fiction for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

Last year I read Once Upon A Prince and totally delighted in the fairy tale romance of Nathaniel and Susanna. Can you imagine falling in love and finding out you are actually dating the future King of Brighton? That story ended just after the engagement but before the wedding took place. It was one of those stories that you knew was destined to be a happily ever after, but you sure would like to read more of the story. Well, much to my delight A March Bride is a continuation of Susanna and Nathaniel's love story. We pick back up about three weeks before the big wedding. Something has Nathaniel stressed and a bit distant. Susanna of course comes to the wrong conclusion that begins a downward spiral in their relationship. Nathaniel jumps to another conclusion and the misunderstandings just begin to compound. This is a very quick read but it is packed with so much. There is a great love story, heavy on the romance! But there are also some very big life lessons included. I enjoy Rachel's writing because she tells a great story but she also reminds us through that story that there is more to life than what is in front of us. In A March Bride we are reminded that this is not our home, that our citizenship is meant for heaven and our true bridegroom is the Prince of Peace. I'm really looking forward to the continuation of the Royal Wedding series. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

This is a cute book. Susanna was a cute character who had a rough earlier life. With that on her mind she was jilted by her love. Then she meets Nathaniel. He needed her help to fix his cottage and garden, her specialty. He also worked at her family's barbecue shack. Then he had to rush home when his father dies. Finally she finds out he is a Prince when he proposes to her. Then she gets swept up with the whole Royal marriage nerves thing. She gets that under control and Nathaniel pops a surprise on her about her marrying. Ooops! No spoilers here. Please read this book. I love this series. There may be lots of authors here but they all fit together.

What a perfectly delightful novella! I had an hour to splurge and spend on myself, and decided to read this ebook I'd bought months ago. A modern-day fairy tale of a king marrying a commoner, with a political twist - will she give up her American citizenship to become his wife? Just loved the witty conversation and good theology behind this little read. As satisfying as a chocolate cupcake - or a big slice of wedding cake.

Very sweet, it was wonderful to see the wedding and how much they loved each other.

I loved getting a little more of Susanna and Nathaniel's story. Life in the palace would be tough, especially if that's not how you were raised. As much as I would love to trade places with Susanna, the reality of princess life would be difficult to adjust to. I can't imagine everyone watching everything I wear, everywhere I go, everything I say and do. I thought Susanna handled things well, considering. Is love enough to keep this couple together? Sometimes the sacrifices in life require a lot of self-evaluation, pondering, and determination. Digging deep to decide what's really important is something Susanna must do. I enjoyed the path and watching her come to a decision about her future. I really do like this couple and thought this was a great addition to the both the Royal Weddings series, as well as the A Year of Weddings Novellas. Content: mild, clean romance; moderate Christian themes and elements (talking to and about God). Clean! *I received a copy through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I just finished reading the Royal Wedding series, so you can imagine my surprise that this novella was about Suzanne and Nathaniel from Once Upon A Prince. I loved catching up with these characters! It provided a more in depth look at their characters. The novellas theme piggyback off of the message from the first story: God's got this! Don't let your fear or your past overshadow what God is bringing to your present. Overall, I loved this short, sweet look into the wedding of King Nathaniel  and sweet, Georgia Belle Suzanna!

A March Bride is A Year of Weddings novella and also a continuation of Rachel Hauck’s Royal Wedding Series. I loved the first book in the series, Once Upon a Prince, and was eager to read more of Susanna’s and King Nathaniel’s happily ever after! Charming and romantic, A March Bride is a delightful novella and a must-read for fans of Once Upon a Prince!

Susanna and Nate are just weeks away from their royal wedding.   Susanna has given up so much of herself to fit into the role of Princess of Brighton, yet she still feels left out.  Nate has been so busy with his royal duties.  Susanna is waiting for the "other shoe to drop" and Nate to wake up and realize that this dream is all wrong.  This is the exact thing that Nate feels Susanna will do to him as well.  So how do two people with fears like this get themselves to the alter?  They rely on prayer and good council to get them there.   This was a satisfying read for a story that started in "Once Upon a Prince" and we get our happily every after in this novella.  Hauck's honest characters continue to breathe here.  The fairy tale wedding happens and we can close the book and know that this couple will make their way depending on faith, family and friends.  Along the way the reader learns that these things are important for yourself as well.  Thank you for fulfilling the princess dreams that reside in any girl's heart. My thanks to Zondervan and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

A March Bride by Rachel Hauck is an absolute must-read for fans of Once Upon a Prince (one of my very favorite books from 2013). This is the story of the weeks leading up to King Nathaniel and Susanna’s wedding and includes all of the romance and sigh-worthy moments that I would expect from these two characters! That is not to say that things go off without a hiccup. There are some threats to their happily ever after, which gave the book the tension it needed and provided problems to be resolved. This novella was just the right length to tell their wedding story and the author told it so well. If you haven’t read Once Upon a Prince, you really need to before reading this novella. Otherwise it just won’t be as meaningful. These two characters had to overcome so much in that novel. It makes this novella all the sweeter to read. Once again, Rachel Hauck has delivered a beautifully sweet story, with believable characters and a happily ever after that is one of the best I have read this year.
