About the book: 

(From publisher)

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 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, move forward, and find love again?

My Review:

Curled on the couch with a book and  mug of tea with “How to catch a prince” was the perfect cure for a long week. If you like super realistic stories, you may not enjoy this one. But if you like “happily ever after” stories with touches of realism, you will love it. Sometimes you read an inspirational fiction book and you feel like you were preached at. Other times you don’t find it inspirational at all. This one was inspiring. The struggle between the two main characters with a twist of almost supernatural was quite unique.

How to Catch a Prince was a lovely story of a strong woman that was hurting, and a man with deep feelings of survival guilt. It addresses some PTSD issues, how grief can manifest as well as issues of dealing with the press if you were a royal.

I really enjoyed it!
