A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals
Naledi is a hard-working graduate student who’s working toward a career in epidemiology. She aged out of the foster system and has no one to rely on other than her flaky friend, Portia, who has a tendency to party too hard. Naledi is driven in her work and believes if she keeps her nose to the grindstone she’ll be able to achieve her dreams. At first, she doesn’t pay any mind to the oldest email scam in the book, an African prince looking to get her personal information. When the messages keep coming, becoming increasingly insistent, she becomes uneasy. Handsome Jamal shows up at work one night and all thoughts of the African prince are put squarely out of her mind, until things take an unexpected turn.
This book was a delightful read. Naledi is a refreshing character – a smart woman who works for what she wants. She’s well-educated and intelligent, but she’s also a relatable poor grad student. The premise of a typical African prince email scam turning out to be more was a lot of fun. This is the perfect romance for someone who’s looking for something a little out of the box.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
