Hallmark’s synopsis reads: “Susanna gladly accepts help one day from handsome stranger Nate in small-town Georgia. Sparks between them fly, but when a photo of them gets leaked to the press, Susanna is in for the shock of her life when Nate is called back home by his mother…for his coronation as the King Nathaniel of Cambria!”
Another synopsis by Hallmark reads: “Stranded with a flat, Susanna is lucky when Nate arrives, even though he’s never changed a tire. As they work together talking under the Lover’s Oak, a spark ignites. What Nate doesn’t mention is he’s Prince Nathaniel from Cambria and must marry a countrywoman.”
