"Oh my God, how did it take me this long to read Alyssa Cole? A Princess in Theory had me hooked from start to finish! Think a modern-day, sexier Princess Diaries, with a super smart--albeit jaded-- heroine and a prince you won't resist. An arranged marriage, a case of mistaken identity, all classic elements to a perfect story. The Reluctant Royals series is a perfect escape that will keep you up past your bedtime."
Between grad school and jobs, Naledi Smith has no time for e-mails claiming she's betrothed to an African prince. The former foster kid has learned to depend only on herself and the scientific method. Heir to the throne of Thesolo, Prince Thabiso is shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can't resist experiencing life without the burden of his crown.
