The Story

Regina Beswick was born to be a princess.But she’s content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother’s hand-painted book of fairytales.

Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation’s future—and his own.Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever.

Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she’s destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together—with a little divine intervention—Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.

Strengths and weaknesses

Regina: Her strength was her ability to see beauty in old things and her faith.

Weakness was wanting to live the life she’d planned for herself.

Tanner: Strength was his integrity, wanting to do what was right in a hard situation.

Regina: Loved to wear her cowboy boots all the time. Even with her evening gowns.

Your inspiration for the character

Regina was her little bit of me, though I wasn’t sure I had any part of me left to pour into a character. But she really was her own woman. Her story of becoming a princess inspired me. I imagined what I would do if I were in the same situation!

Tanner was every dark side of the men I’ve known in my life, and the good side. But like Regina, Tanner was his own man, walking onto the page and after a rewrite or two, presented himself.

Background to the story

This story is the second in the Royal Wedding Series and was inspired by the idea of a girl finding out she was a long lost princess.

Thanks Rach!
