CHANCING FAITH

He didn't do short term relationships...

American ad exec, Thane Aleksander, doesn't date co-workers either-until business takes him to Ghana, West Africa, and he meets Naaki. Now he's at risk of breaking all the rules. Can he stop this headlong fall before it's too late?

Until he met her!

Naaki Tabika has a burning need to prove, to herself and to others, that she's more than wife and mother material. To do so, she's prepared to give up everything for her job. Meeting Thane, however, makes her want to get personal. But falling for her boss could destroy her career. Will she be willing to risk it all for the one thing that can make her truly happy?

Two divergent cultures, two different races, two career-driven professionals, only one chance at true love-will they find the faith to take it, or will their hearts be sacrificed on the altar of financial success?

Chancing Faith is an enchanting interracial romance. Unlike some others I’ve read, this book isn’t about color so much as interracial cultural differences. The story takes place in Ghana, Africa and has a nice foreign flavor to it that I quite enjoyed. For a debut author, the book is very well done.

Chancing Faith is a contemporary romance with a mix of cultural and business issues that make it an interesting read. The food choices at the local restaurants, the spattering of foreign words, the dialogue of the African characters, and the potential threat of an American business taking over an African one and Americanizing it by forcing their policies and values on the employees, without regard to the culture those employees are living in, gives Chancing Faith a nice ring of truth.

Meet the Author

Empi Baryeh has been writing since the age of thirteen after stumbling upon a YA story her older sister had started. The story fascinated her so much that, when she discovered it was unfinished, she knew the task of completing it rested firmly on her shoulders. And somehow the ideas and the words for the rest of the story began to pour into her mind. She’s been writing ever since.

It wasn’t until another thirteen years later, however, that the romantic in her geared her toward romance. She now focuses on heart-warming multicultural romance with enough passion to enthral readers who want a little sizzle with their romance. She lives in her native country, Ghana, which provides the exotic setting for most of her novels.

Chancing Faith by Empi Baryeh is a well written, wonderfully touching romance novel. It was both sweet and deliciously 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 revealing any cliffhangers here). I’m glad it ended the way it did, making me smile. The portrayal of the difference in their race was very neutral, yet I never forgot that they were different.   The story was about the romance of a man and a woman who just happened to be of different colors and cultures. Love, as they say, knows no color and Empi depicted that concept very well.  I hate to sound cliché, but the truth is the truth, Chancing Faith was an utter delight to read.               Thanks for a book that made me say ‘Ahhh’.                  Ayekoo!!!!! Great job.
