Synopsis:
 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.
 Review:
I have to admit sadly, that this is the first book I've read by Rachel Hauck, I have all the rest of her books sitting on my TBR shelf as I type, and I could kick myself for waiting so long to read her books!

How to Catch a Prince was just a fantastic story. I didn't know what to expect when diving into the pages, but I was pleasantly surprised as I worked my way through. This wasn't just some fluffy romance. No! There was so much more to it. The depth of the characters and the emotions and issues they have to work through, and the fact that their faith play a big part. They show that when you have one set of plans, God looks at them and says...yeah, no. He has plans for us, and when we let them happen, it will be so much better then what we could have planned for ourselves.

I really enjoyed this book and the contemporary fairy tale feel of it, because really, every girl would love to find her own prince, real royal title or not. This book just captured me up into Stephen and Corina's story. The writing was just amazing and the characters worked so well together. I can't wait to go back and read the other two books in this series. This book was a delight in so many ways!!

I've read the first book in Hauck's Royal Wedding Series and I just didn't like it, so it's put me off the rest of the books tbh. I'm really glad you like it and mayne I'll take a closer look into this one! Also, I nominated you for the Liebster Award, see this page for more information :) xx
