My first introduction to Rachel Hauck’s writing was the book, Love Starts With Elle. I was hooked. Her combination of romance and humor was my cup of tea (or glass of sweet tea, y’all). So I am very pleased and happy to welcome her as a guest here at Authorview. I know you will enjoy her answers as much as I did.
Author/Artist Name: Rachel Hauck
I am a…Funny girl!
You would like me when I’m…Leading worship or speaking.
You wouldn’t like me when I’m…Tired! Or hungry. Danger Will Robinson!
What qualities I like to see in others: Honesty, loyalty, one who appreciates a great potato chip.
Favorite way to spend an evening: With my hubby, watching TV or in a good worship and prayer service.
Who I love to spend an evening with: People who love Jesus. Really, there’s nothing greater. I like hanging around people who are thinkers, debaters (in the good sense) and want to talk about life, God and the Word.

My favorite food is: Do I dare say it? French fries! And pizza. I mean who doesn’t like pizza?

My favorite happily-ever-after: Cinderella! Though we don’t know for sure she and the prince lived happily ever after…. But I think they do.

She caught her prince once.
Can she catch him again?
American heiress Corina Del Rey’s life was devastated by war. Every thing she loved was lost. But after five years of grief, she’s shed her grave clothes and started over in the sunshine along the Florida coast.
But some things are not so easily forgotten. When a secret from her past confronts her face to face, she realizes she must follow her heart. Even if it cost her everything.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen’s pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?
Yet, true love has a destiny all it’s own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts.
Or let it be lost forever?
