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?

- Review by Brittany at the Books and Biscuits Blog
The novel brings together the worlds of Brighton royalty and Southern charm, offering a satisfying conclusion to the much-loved Royal Wedding series. Somewhat darker in tone than the other books, How to Catch a Prince follows Prince Stephen's journey as he discovers God's forgiveness in light of the horrors of his military past. While the previous two books focus on legal and political challenges within the kingdom, this novel’s themes center around issues of personal growth and emotional trials.
Overall, I enjoyed reading How to Catch a Prince and am happy to add it to my personal collection.

It's a great romance story, but even more, it's the story of broken people who look to God to heal them. I loved reading about Corrina and Stephen as a couple, but even more reading about how God worked in their lives. At one point, the story actually brought me to tears!
This is great for anyone who loves a good contemporary romance, or royal story. And readers who look for something a bit deeper than just a good story will not be disappointed either!
Note: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. (Posted on 2/24/2015)

That story continued in “A March Bride” – a wonderful novella in the Year of Weddings series.
“Princess Ever After” introduced us to the second Royal couple in a very unconventional fairy tale and since then, we’ve waited anxiously for the next installment!
And it’s finally here!
I’ll be honest with you. This review started very differently a week ago, when I was setting up my post in preparation for writing the review… before I had read the book.
And now that I have read the book, I find that I must start fresh – because the words I had planned do not even begin to do justice to this sensational story.
I will, however leave the words “You DON’T want to miss even one book in this terrific series!” because you DON’T! Each story is better than the last and How To Catch A Prince is… by far and away… the very BEST!
In the dedication at the very back of the book, Rachel makes a point of thanking so many people for helping her in her time of trial… she basically says she doesn’t know how she managed to write this book at all and she outlines for her beloved fans a bit of what she was going through at that dark time in her life.
I for one, am grateful.
I really think, when reading this book, that it was not Rachel who was writing out these touching words – it was God!
And while I feel for the difficult journey that Rachel went through… I am so very glad that she pushed herself to continue because I believe with every ounce of my being that God penned a very deep and meaningful message through her fingers.
Sometimes you just have to be completely broken – so that God can lift you up and make you whole again.
Perhaps Rachel could never have written so powerfully about Prince Stephen’s struggles if she had not been dealing with her own.
Perhaps Rachel could not have properly communicated Corina’s heartache if she had not felt the wrench in her own life.
Well, God knows!
And I thank God from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful story and I feel so very blessed to be able to do any tiny little thing to help get this book into the hands of even one more person.
So please, read this book. Please do not miss this exceptional story of loss, love and God’s healing power! You won’t regret it… unless you never read it, that is!
