when first you practice to deceive...
A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals - Alyssa Cole

... expect to be called on it.

 

Naledi Smith has been recently getting emails from someone who claims to be from an African country, who has a prince that she's supposed to marry.  Yeah, right.  She's too busy trying to work two jobs, fend off her co-worker that wants to give her all the work and take all the glory himself and trying to keep her friend Portia happy too.

 

Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo and he wants to track Naledi down and convince her to do her duty, not realising that her family died when she was quite young and all of this is news.  She thinks he's a new hire in her catering job and it's easier to go with the flow..  

 

Now they're both attracted and he has no idea how to tell her the truth.  Her friend Portia forces the issue and everything starts to get more complicated.  There are people from her home village dying, as an epidemeoplogist she has a chance to save people's lives.

 

It was a fun read, you could see where the problems were coming from.

Princess Elizabeth's Spy (Maggie Hope #2) by Susan Ella MacNeal
Princess Elizabeth's Spy (Maggie Hope, #2) - Susan Elia MacNeal

Maggie Hope fails out of the MI-5 boot camp due to her physical strength (and the lack thereof). However, just because she is not cut out to go overseas undercover, she is still capable and an asset to use on home soil. So she is given an assignment - tutor Princess Elizabeth in advance maths while really searching out for any saboteurs or German spies working in Windsor Castle.

 

This was an interesting and fast paced story once Maggie is at Windsor. The last book dealt with Irish rebels; this book deals with the British Fascist Party and the German spy network. Along with protecting the princesses and sniffing out the saboteurs, Maggie finds out more about her parents and the beginnings of love triangle form. And it turns out, Princess Elizabeth is a very astute student, putting Hope's lesson on cryptography into good use. Maggie is good at maths, not so much reading people - I hope with more experience, she is gets better at that much needed skill.
