My review:

To Win a Prince is the sequel to In Search of a Prince. I highly recommend reading them in order so you don't miss anything!

I absolutely love Iris and her heart for the people of Oloro Ilé. She might not be a princess, but she has a heart of gold. I love that when she looks at Ekon, she sees him not as he is but as he could be. She was willing to give him a chance when he desperately needed a friend.

I enjoyed Ekon's transformation. While it was much needed, it was still hard to see some of what he experienced. I love that Shiloh helps us understand where Ekon is coming from so that he becomes a sympathetic character instead of an arrogant jerk. 

I love how Shiloh weaves faith so seamlessly into her stories. Her characters are not perfect; they are real. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful friendship between Bri and Iris continue to grow. I love Iris' relationship with her family. I was gobsmacked at the plot twist. I barely took time to take it in; I had to see what happened next! The romance is even lighter in this story than in the first one, but still very sweet.

Thank you to Bethany House for the opportunity to review this book. I was not required to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Synopsis (Goodreads): 

As a fashion aficionado and best friend of the queen of the African island country Oloro Ilé, Iris Blakely dreams of using her talent to start a business to help citizens in impoverished areas. But when she discovers that Ekon Diallo will be her business consultant, the battle between her desires and reality begins.

Ekon Diallo has lost everything: his princely title, his material possessions, his friends, and the respect of his countrymen. To pay for his actions against Oloro Ilé, he's forced to assist the charismatic Iris Blakely--but he can't allow his heart to distract him from regaining his status.

As Iris strives to get her business off the ground while keeping her heart intact, will her dreams of happily ever after survive the challenges she faces?


  1. This cover is so darned cute. I'm so glad the story was good too

  2. Love the coral color of this cover art - BH always does these contemporary romances well. :)
