Author Toni Shiloh pens another well-written contemporary inspirational romance featuring a Black American woman and an African prince.
In To Win A Prince, fashion entrepreneur Iris Blakely establishes her fashion business in the African nation where her best friend Brielle is queen (see To Search For a Prince). Bri assigns Ekon Diallo to guide her through local business requirements. Stripped of his princely title and forced to do community service, disgraced Ekon serves as her business consultant to make amends for his actions.
Can an entitled Ekon learn from his experiences to become a better man? Can Iris benefit from his business acumen without losing her heart? Can they learn from one another?
Shiloh, author of numerous contemporary romances, creates another royal romance that builds on her earlier work (To Search For a Prince), also set in the fictional Oloro Ilé, a tropical African island. Iris is a compassionate visionary, while Ekon is an unlikeable nobleman whose actions strip him of his privileges. As he navigates his new life, Ekon is faced with abandonment by his family and friends, but Iris recognizes his potential and befriends him.
Forgiveness, a nod to the prodigal story in the Bible, family secrets, second chances, and redemption permeate the novel. Readers will welcome a return to Oloro Ilé, rejoice to see Bri’s story updated as well as meet new characters. As with her other works, To Win A Prince is a clean romance, with faith elements and a good storyline.
