Lovers of African romance, rejoice! In the spirit of Valentine’s and all things love-related, Ankara Press has just added two new titles to its romance e-book series.

Kudos to Cassava Republic Press for working so hard to consistently expand the catalogue of the romance imprint with new and exciting stories that explore the love, life and relationships of everyday African men and women.

The first book, Love Me Unconditionally by the 2009 Wasafiri New Writing Prize for Fiction winner, Ola Awonubi, tells the story of Deola Banjoko, an accomplished lady with a glistening future and a successful fiancée. Despite everything going quite splendidly for her, Deola’s life would soon begin to fall apart as her inability to fall pregnant attracts the weight of societal and cultural pressures, under which her relationship eventually crumbles. Attempting to piece back together the shattered pieces of her heart, she decides to work in Nigeria, where she soon meets and falls for Femi Da Silva, a businessman who himself has a troubled past.

This Crazy Paradise chronicles the story of psychologist Dr. Onele Diamini who goes on an exquisite month-long vacation to a resort on the West Coast of South Africa, as self-therapy for getting over her recent divorce. There, she tries to reignite the fire of romance in her heart by writing love stories. But the heat comes in an unexpected way, as she comes in contact with Daniel Lindo, an attractive workman who enlists her professional help in getting over his own heartbreak. This encounter will lead her to question what she thought she knew about everything: love, truth and even the seemingly-perfect paradise that is this resort. The second offering from Aziza Eden Walker, author of The Seeing Place, this book promises a lot of intrigue.

These two books are part of an on-going series by Ankara Press, an African imprint which publishes sensual literature. Links for purchase can be found on Ankara Press’ website.
