About the Book
A modern-day fairytale of rescue and hope from NYT bestselling author Rachel Hauck
Growing up in small town Hearts Bend, Tennessee, Gemma Stone had big dreams. So she headed to Hollywood to make her mark in the world.
But dreams have a way of becoming nightmares. When she returns home twelve years later, she’s limping through life and harboring a dark secret.
Running a rescue ranch and raising her friends’ orphaned daughter is her sole mission now. All the while she’s well aware these defenseless ones are also rescuing her.
HRH Crown Prince John has learned a royal title cannot shield him from heartbreak. He had the perfect life as heir to the revered House of Blue, the royal dynasty of Lauchtenland, and married the love of his life. Then tragedy changed everything. Is there any way to be saved from a life of grief?
When he finds himself in Hearts Bend on a mission for his mother, Queen Catherine, he catches up with a good friend–country music great Buck Mathews. He has no intention of joining the 4th of July fun until he’s cajoled into a three-legged race with the beautiful Gemma Stone.
The disastrous race leads to a quick friendship. They are easy and comfortable around one another because love is absolutely not an option.
John desperately wants to hold onto the memories of his wife while Gemma refuses to trust her heart to any man. Even a prince.
When trouble in Lauchtenland calls the prince home, he realizes how much Gemma has rescued him. Saved him and restored his hope for his role as future king.
For Gemma, falling in love with the prince must be quenched. If it weren’t for her past, she’d give him her heart in a second. How could she risk bringing her shame to the House of Blue and the world stage?
However, she’s not the only one who can rescue and heal the wound. If she saved Prince John, why can’t he save her? And when he tries, will she have the courage to say yes to the best role of her life?
“Another compelling royal story by the master of princely tales!” Susan May Warren, USA Today bestselling, RITA award-winning novelist
Gemma Stone has found a refuge where she escapes her sordid past. She rescues horses, goats, dogs, and cats, and loves them back to health. Add to that the orphaned teenager of her best friend. When she meets John, a crown prince spending a month in her Tennessee town, a fairy tale romance begins. Neither have any expectation that it can last. Gemma’s secrets are not buried deep enough for a life in the spotlight, and John is still grieving the death of his wife and unborn child.
As the story unfolds, so do secrets—some belonging to Gemma and some pointing back to John’s deceased wife. Rachel Hauck does a masterful job of building characters, spurring readers to cheer them on, hoping love can indeed cross an ocean of distance and differences. After all, who doesn’t love a fairytale ending?
A few supernatural phenomena occur to show that God is at work in their lives and their healing. I read this novel without having read book one, To Love a Prince. Some references caused me to realize I had missed some key history. I recommend reading them in order. I enjoyed To Save a King and recommend it to readers who love a good romance.
