Summary:
"Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever. Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder -- if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future. Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could've been. But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife's appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever"--

Summary

Summary

Behind him, beside him, before him, the synchronized cathedral bells began to ring out.

One, two, three . . .

Then she said it first. The words his heart burst to share. "I love you, Stephen. You are my true prince."

An American heiress and a crown prince seem destined to be together. Will the devastation of war keep them apart forever?

American heiress Corina Del Rey caught her prince once. But the tragedy of war kept her too long in a fog of grief. Now she's shifting her life forward, reigniting her career as a journalist. Still, nothing can relieve her of the secret and the love she carries in her soul.

Prince Stephen of Brighton is one of the world's most eligible bachelors and a star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life. His days in Afghanistan with the Royal Air Command will mark him forever. And he can't seem to shake their dark shadow.

But when his brother, King Nathaniel, confronts him with a document the prince thought long buried and forgotten, Stephen is forced to face the pain of his past and the love he left behind.

With a little heavenly help, Prince Stephen and Corina embark on a journey of truth. But when the secrets are revealed, can they overcome and find love again?

Booklist Review

*Starred Review* It starts out like so many other love stories. Soldier meets girl. Soldier marries girl. Soldier goes off to war. Except this is no ordinary couple. Corina Del Rey is an American heiress, and Stephen Stratton is the Prince of Brighton, serving in the Royal Air Command. Afghanistan takes its toll: Corina's twin brother is killed, and Stephen is wounded both physically and emotionally. Corina's overwhelming grief is compounded when she is notified that Stephen has annulled their marriage. Five and a half years later, Stephen discovers that the archbishop never filed the annulment papers; he is still married to Corina. His brother, King Nathaniel, orders him to deliver this news to Corina in person, and she is as shocked as Stephen. But Corina wants to know exactly how her brother died, and she is not signing the papers until Stephen breaks national security and tells her. Hauck has written a sensitive, emotion-filled story about the effects of war on a relationship. Her characters are flawed and realistic. This engaging, faith-based book is part of the Royal Wedding Series (Once upon a Prince, 2013; Princess Ever After, 2014) and will appeal to Debbie Macomber fans.--Mosley, Shelley Copyright 2015 Booklist


Library Journal Review

Starred Review. Corina Del Rey, heiress to a vast fortune, and her beau, rugby superstar Prince Stephen of Brighton, seemed destined to be together forever. But then the war in Afghanistan kills Corina's brother and robs Stephen of any sense of security he had about where his life was going. After five years of living in emotional darkness and turmoil, wrestling with the hidden knowledge that she and Stephen share, Corina returns to her career as a journalist. Meanwhile, King Nathaniel decides it is time to end his brother's suffering and confronts Stephen with evidence of the secret Stephen and Corina have tried so desperately to suppress. Now the couple must decide whether to move forward together. Their choice will test their faith in God and their love. VERDICT Perfect for Valentine's Day, Hauck's (Princess Ever After) latest inspirational romance offers an uplifting and emotionally rewarding tale that will delight her growing fan base.
