Besides she is an orphan and her parents were killed in an accident. Naledi knows that no one wants her, much less a prince, so why should she think otherwise? She is currently studying for tests and dealing with annoying coworkers. She doesn’t have time for wacky emails.
Prince Thabiso, exclusive heir to the throne of Thesolo, is in a quandary. His parents are hassling him about his responsibilities, namely to his country, his title and most importantly, his wedding nuptials. He is single and everyone in the kingdom is eyeing him for their daughters. It is imperative Thabiso finds his pledged fiancee, Naledi and fast!
Thabiso finds her but mistaken identity ensues and Ledi thinks he is someone else. Oh well, Thabiso goes along with it, but will it be his downfall? He is smitten with the brassy beauty and her brains. Only, he hesitates about telling her about her real ancestry. Does Naledi fall for the hot new man in her life or will she give him the boot?
