Before I start, I have to say I love the book cover. It's absolutely gorgeous. Yep, I'm a big fan of fabulous book covers. Now, on to the review.
After a few weeks of reading intense, passionate and mainly erotic romances, I was yearning to read a less spicy romance, perhaps something more sedate. A cooling sour cream and chive dip alternative to my usual spicy honey mustard, if you catch my drift.

Chancing Faith provided a great palate-cleansing interlude before I pick up something steamier. And

I enjoyed this story so much! I enjoyed the fact that it took place in a foreign country,Ghana and that the author was Ghanian as well. I always think that when the author lives what she writes about it lends more believability to the story.

I enjoyed how the relationship grew from attraction to love, and not the immediate "jump in the sack" that happens in a lot of IR romances, though I enjoy those as well!

I learned so much about the Ghanian culture that I'm planning a 'Feminine Beads' program a

Chancing Faith by Empi Baryeh is a well written, wonderfully touching romance novel. It was both sweet and utterly passionate (spicy). I really got into Thane and Naaki’s relationship and was intrigued by how it developed. I didn't want the book to end, but desperately wanted to see how it ended. My curiosity was simmering about if he was going to stay in Ghana or if she was going to leave the country with him (being a romance book we all know they end up together, it’s the formula, so I’m not r ...more

I loved that this took place in Africa and I learnt some of the culture.

This author did a wonderful job here. The chemistry between the hero and heroine jumped off the page. I could feel the connection they had to each other, though they tried to the fight the attraction at first.

The pacing of the relationship was perfect, it wasn't just wanting to have sex, it was getting to know and love each other with everything they learnt.

This was a sweet ans sensual read. There is no words to describe ho
The TBR Pile *Book review site*

Talk about adventures in a new land! Ms. Baryeh took me on an enchanting journey into a foreign country filled to the brim with a rich culture, colorful people, and in this instance, the politics of business. From the minute I stepped off the plane into Ghana with our hero, business mogul, Thane, I was immersed in the detail rich world. The author weaved with the great skill of a writer who's been honing their abilities for years. Seeing as how th

Nice Multicultural Romance...

This is my first book by this author and being that I’m super interested in African romance, I definitely wanted to check out this book set in Ghana. Featuring post-grad Ghanaian marketing intern, Naaki, and Thane, a high-powered businessman interested in taking over the company where she’s interning, I was concerned that the power dynamics between a white, foreign male boss and a female local intern were going to be uncomfortable. But I was wrong. From their first e

Nice Read

This was a nice read about Thane and Naaki finding love in one another because Gyamfi was not the man for her with his controlling ways. Thane did good to save MIA and secure a future with Naaki. I can't wait to see what happens next with Ty and Pat.
