WFT: A Princess in Theory - Alyssa Cole

Waiting for…

A Princess in Theory (Reluctant Royals #1) by Alyssa Cole

From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .

Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise.

Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of his crown.

The chemistry between them is instant and irresistible, and flirty friendship quickly evolves into passionate nights. But when the truth is revealed, can a princess in theory become a princess ever after?

You can read an excerpt of this book at Cosmo and at Bustle. I think they complement each other but the second gave me a better feeling for Thabiso, the first one made him seem annoyingly arrogant, but I’m such a fan of the conceit that I really want to check this one out. Well, I won’t have to wait long. It comes out next Tuesday.

Alyssa Cole is the author of several inclusive romances, including the critically lauded An Extraordinary Union.
