In Search of a Prince
It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.
Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha's Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell--Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.
Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?

Library Journal starred review
"In Shiloh's latest Christian romance, her Black characters grapple with uncertainty and the unknown and find guidance and peace through faith. . . . Bri is a refreshingly independent protagonist who has the opportunity to create change in a culture still steeped in traditional gender roles that keep women from positions of power and influence."
"I love a romance populated with characters you can truly root for. And this one has that and more. Coupled with Toni Shiloh's winning voice, it's a story not to be missed."
"I must admit, I have never read a Toni Shiloh book before and am kind of kicking myself for it now. In Search of a Prince was a fun read that reminded me of The Princess Diaries which I have always loved. . . a very inspiring story that readers will enjoy and leave wanting more from this tropical paradise."
Write Read Life
"Shiloh takes a classic trope and adds a unique twist by setting her fictional kingdom off the coast of Africa. With beautiful themes of forgiveness, finding one's true identity, and the importance of family; a gorgeous setting; and just enough romance and excitement to keep the pages turning, In Search of a Prince hits exactly the right note."
