Publisher's Summary

Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn't have time for fairy tales . . . or the patience for constant emails 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 email 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 their flirty friendship quickly evolves into passionate nights. But when the truth is revealed, can a princess in theory become a princess ever after?

It’s Coming to America meets The Princess Diaries

And I’m here for all of it! Loved this sweet and erotic romance featuring a dark-skinned princess learning about her destiny through a comedy of errors. If you’re a fan of Alyssa Cole’s wit and real love stories, there’s nothing in this review that will come as news to you. If you’re looking for a great princess story after this week’s royal wedding, you cannot go wrong with Naledi and Thabiso’s love story.

Excited for the next book in the series.

Excellent!

I’m so glad I listened to this book. It’s a well-written, well-read, straightforward happily-ever-after romance, but from a few angles that we don’t see quite so often: an orphan raised in the foster care system in NYC meets her Prince Charming, an actual African prince. The descriptions, from her work as a grad student in epidemiology, to her visits to a remote southern African village, are vivid and interesting and realistic. The chemistry between the two main characters is irresistible, and the sex is HOT!

The narrator performed the various accents and dialects perfectly (to my ear, anyway)—the differences between a character from Brooklyn and a character from Africa were discernible without being so strong that it becomes difficult to understand to a foreign ear.

Frankly, we need a LOT more books like this one. My white ass should be put in the position of seeing myself in a heroine who’s race and background are different from my own a lot more often. And perhaps even moreso, black women deserve to see many, many more smart, funny, sexy heroines that look and sound like them, too. I’m sure those books exist, but if they’re half as good as A PRINCESS IN THEORY, they should be promoted, and visible, and as celebrated as any book with a white princess in a corset on the cover.

Read/listen to this book. You won’t regret it.
