Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder-if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could've been
But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife's appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.
My review: I really enjoyed reading this book. It showed how one single tragedy affected so many people. After five and a half years Corina was just beginning to build a new life. Prince Stephen was hiding behind his rugby career. Corina’s parents are still mourning. Corina is still in love with Stephen and it is quite apparent that Stephen is still in love with her. So she doesn’t understand why he wants an annulment and why he won’t tell her how her brother Carlos died. The story revolves around Stephen working through survivors guilt and Corina trying to understand Stephen.
I also found The Manor, Adelaide, and Brill fascinating. You can draw your own conclusions about what is happening there. Have you ever been helped by angels unawares. In hindsight, I can say that I have been.
I have found all three of the Royal Wedding books a delight to read. I would highly recommend them all to anyone. It is not necessary to read the first two to read this book.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
