About In Search of a Prince

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 the mother of all bombshells–Brielle is a princess in the kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, King Tiwa Jimoh Adebayo, is failing.

Distraught by her mother’s betrayal, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before assuming the throne or the crown will be passed to another. Uncertain who to choose from the council’s list of bachelors, she struggles with the decision along with the weight of her new role in a new country. With her world totally shaken, she must take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring. 


Toni Shiloh is a wife, mom, and Christian fiction writer. Once she understood the powerful saving grace of the love of Christ, she was moved to honor her Savior.

She writes soulfully romantic novels to bring Him glory and to learn more about His goodness.

When she’s not typing in imagination land, Toni enjoys reading, playing video games, ​making jewelry, and spending time with ​her family.

Toni is a member of the American Christian ​Fiction Writers (ACFW) and of the Virginia ​Chapter.

My thoughts on In Search of A Prince

I honestly don’t even know where to start with this book.

I am not usually a gushy person, like very rarely do I get gushy over a book. But there is just something about the way Toni Shiloh wrote this book that was both emotionally tugging and faithfully uplifting that I find myself wanting to continually talk about it.

The characters were very well developed. I really liked how we got to see them grow. Brielle, I thought was very dimensional. We got to see her learning the ins and outs of running a country, learning to trust, and continually seeking God when life is upside down.

Tomori (Mori) was really the perfect counterpart to Brielle. I loved how he seemed to balance her and yet he had his own strengths and struggles to.

Lastly, I really enjoyed getting to immerse myself into the world of Ọlọrọ Ilé that Toni Shiloh created. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. (You should check out her Pinterest inspiration board!)

The cover is what originally drew me to really want to read this book (I mean other than the fact that I had already read several of Toni Shiloh’s books and appreciated their originality). But that cover… man One of the best covers I have ever seen before. The designer(s) did a fantastic job!

Overall, this book will go down as one of them favorite books and I look forward to sharing it with my family.

5 Stars.
