How to Catch a Queen by Alyssa Cole is a great contemporary romance about a woman that is finally living her dream to be queen.
Shanti just married Sanyu, King of Njaza. Sanyu has just been crowned king after his father’s death. Sanyu was taught to be tough all the time and never get close to everyone. All Shanti has ever wanted is to be Queen in order to make a difference. Neither of them wants to fall in love. During the day they don’t talk but at night Shanti starts to help Sanyu develop plans for the future. In Njaza, there is a few month trial period before the queen is crowned the real queen.
Alyssa Cole is one of my favorite romance writers and How to Catch a Queen lived up to my expectations. This book is a mix of steamy romance and serious issues. Njaza is a country where woman do not have power, and Shanti is trying to change that anyway she can.
How to Catch a Queen has great characters. Shanti is strong and willing to do anything to fight for what she believes in. She has always wanted be a queen in order to make a difference in the world. She isn’t after love or the glamourous side of being a queen. Sanyu is trying to be a good King and wants to make everyone proud.
I highly recommend How to Catch a Queen to anyone that likes contemporary romance and royalty.
Thank you Avon/Harper Collins and Edelweiss for How to Catch a Queen.
