There have been a huge surge of wonderful books being released this year, especially sequels. Last month, Rachel Hauck released the second installment in The Royal Wedding Series titled Princess Ever After. Yes, I know this is a romance novel, but if you have followed my blog regularly, then you would know I do like reading romances.

Princess Ever After is a modern day fairy tale, which centers on a simple small-town girl, Regina Beswick. (Isn't Regina the name of the wicked mayor/queen on ABC's Once Upon a Time?)  She is living an ordinary life working at classic auto restoration shop. Let doesn't know that she is actually a real life princess.

Tanner Burkhardt is the Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg, who has been assigned the task of hunting down the heir to Heseenberg - the-long-princess, Regina Beswick. It seems Regina's ancestors fled Hesseenberg in the early 1900s and she was never told about her heritage, until now.

It isn't every day that you are told that you are princess. Or that you have inherited an entire country. Regina must take on a lot of responsibility, dodge someone who wants her throne and possibly fall in love.

If you haven't read the first book in the series, Once Upon a Prince, don't worry, as Princess Ever After is a standalone tale. To me, part of the plot is similar to Disney's Princess Diaries, in which a girl finds out she has inherited an entire (fictional) country. Rachel Hauck is a great writer, so she was able to avoid the typical romance cliches. Overall, Princess Ever After may not be exactly original, but it is a cute harmless read.
