How to Catch a Prince 
"How To Catch A Prince"
Rachel Hauck

American heiress Corina Del Rey’s life was devastated by war. Every thing she loved was lost. But after five years of grief, she’s shed her grave clothes and started over in the sunshine along the Florida coast.
But some things are not so easily forgotten. When a secret from her past confronts her face to face, she realizes she must follow her heart. Even if it cost her everything.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen’s pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?
Yet, true love has a destiny all it’s own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts.
Or let it be lost forever?

"How To Catch A Prince" was not what I was expecting.  I was really expecting it to remind me of The Duke William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge, but it didn't.  This book kept me guessing till the end.
Unfortunately, there were a couple of innuendo's in the book that I did not like at all.  I don't see the purpose in putting those things in a Christian fiction book.  One in particular made me really upset.  Corina's boss was digging and speculating about Corina's big secret that she had and one of her assumptions was uncalled for.  Yes, the press prints dirt, but I don't expect that same dirt to be in a Christian fiction book.

There were some unexpected characters in this book that "watched over" Corina.  They're her guardian angels.  Corina was apprehensive about them at first, but learns to trust them and they truly helped her get things back in order.  I enjoyed their part in Corina's story.

Throughout the book there were lessons that the main characters learned and that readers could learn as well.  The main one was about loving well.  Not just romantically, but in all areas.  Corina and Stephen's story didn't come together until they both learned to love well.  Love - selflessly.   Loving God and trusting in His will. 

Other than the innuendos, I enjoyed this book.  It was better written than "Princess Ever After".
