From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hauck comes the fourth installment in the Royal Wedding Series, a charming tale of holiday romance!
“A stirring modern-day fairy tale about the power of true love.” –Cindy Kirk, author of Love at Mistletoe Inn
Avery Truitt aches for true love—the kind she once shared with Prince Colin. Can she dare to hope for happily ever after, or is a fairy-tale ending beyond reach?
College volleyball star Avery Truitt has not seen her former flame, Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom, since he suddenly pushed her away five years ago. But now, the sadness of losing her father and the joy of her sister Susanna’s pregnancy have brought Avery back to Brighton just in time for Cathedral City’s enchanting Christmas season.
Avery knows she can’t avoid seeing Colin—now the Kingdom’s most eligible bachelor—whether or not her heart is ready to relive the pain. But seeing him again might bring her the closure she needs after all this time.
When Colin finds himself at the center of a centuries-old Brighton tradition, he must decide whether to follow the path laid out before him or follow his heart to the only woman for whom he would ring the Pembroke Chapel Bell.
Can Colin convince Avery to meet him at the chapel on Christmas morning—as tradition dictates—or will Avery run back to her St. Simons home and pursue a coaching career as planned?
American volleyball star Avery Truitt believes she has gotten over her long-past teenage love, Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom, who stood her up four and a half years ago. But when she leaves Georgia to visit the kingdom, where her sister is married to the king, she realizes she is not as over the handsome young prince as she thinks she is. Colin is now dating an actress, but the appearance of Avery at the palace causes him to doubt his past decisions and plans for his future. When people start talking about the tradition of the Chapel Tower bell in which a man rings the bell at midnight to declare his love and asks the woman he loves to marry him on Christmas Day Colin protests any desire to ring the bell. Two nosy TV personalities keep the media abuzz with the royal romance, or lack thereof, and add a touch of humor to Hauck's (The Wedding Dress) sweet love story of a royal prince and a down-home girl at Christmastime.
