Broken Engagement by Queenbee Aurora
The saying, “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,’ is very well represented in Aurora’s Broken Engagement. Becca, Atlanta based beauty, independent, and a career woman with a dark past, meets and falls in love with a man from Northern Nigeria; a Muslim.
Despite their religious and ethnic differences, she believes that finally, she could have family with him, and heal from the wounds of the family she lost.
Fate plays a deadly game when her prince in shining armor is called back to Nigeria, to run for governor for his state.
His family, knowing about his engagement with an Igbo woman, thinks it will tarnish their name, and any chances to win the election. So they fight tooth and nail, to end the relationship. They succeed, before ensuring he is married to a proper northern bride.
But Becca doesn’t know how to let go. She’s willing to go any length to get her prince back.
Broken Engagement is the Book 1 in the ‘Broken Hearts’ series and is garnished with the intricacies of the dirty politics played in Nigeria. It is filled with intrigue, action, romance, love, fear, anger, tragedy and a-ha moments that would leave you asking for more.
