Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck

Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck - 358 pages

In this story that picks up where Once Upon a Prince left off, the long lost Princess of Hessenberg has been found and Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture, has been dispatched to inform the heiress, Regina Beswick.  Regina, a classic car restorer, is at first reluctant to the idea she is the heir and that her great-grandmother was the princess forced to flee during World War I.  But with Tanner's help, she gradually warms to the idea and goes to Hessenberg.  While there, political turmoil erupts; their are factions supporting the reinstatement of the royal house after the 100 year entail to neighboring Brighton and faction opposed to it.  The latter group is led by the Governor of Hessenberg.  During all of this, Tanner provides a guiding hand to Regina and they begin to fall in love.

The story was cute, but not as good as the first book.  I liked how Regina was portrayed with a lot of spunk.  She held her ground and never lost her personality during the whole ordeal.  In fact, her Southern (Tallahassee-born) manners helped endear her to Tanner and the people.
