"Alyssa Cole is the newly coronated queen of contemporary royal romance! A Princess in Theory is delicious fun... a smart, funny heroine; a sweetly sexy prince; swoon-worthy romance; and an epic happily-ever-after. Long live the queen!" - Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries "A delightful and sexy take on love between a suave African prince and a nerdy epidemiology student." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Attention-grabbing from page one, this first book in the Reluctant Royals series will absolutely warm your heart. A Princess in Theory is a delightful love story that introduces a princess - with attitude! - who readers will enjoy rooting for. Naledi is skeptical about modern royalty, but her ambition and tough demeanor shine. Cultural differences aside, this is a simple and heartfelt story to be savored." - RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars- TOP PICK) "a funny, fast-moving, smart-alecky romance... A PRINCESS IN THEORY is pure fun. It will have you laughing, cringing and hooked from the start!" - Romance Junkies "the best new romance I've read in a while..." - New York Times Book Review "This is a fun, fanciful romance perfect for readers dreaming of royal weddings." - BookPage "In Cole's world, royalty and romance go hand in hand with compassion, open-heartedness, and intelligence, as well as a clear-eyed sense of real-world politics. A Princess in Theory is a fairy tale, yes, but one consistently grounded in reality, which makes the happily-ever-after all the more satisfying." - Entertainment Weekly "This book was a lot of fun, sexy, with a compelling story. I really enjoyed the romance as it developed between Ledi and Thabioso, both interesting characters together and as individuals. Lots of erotic tension and a deeply satisfying ending. Definitely dive into this one." - Roxane Gay
