king asabi's husbands

Asabi's mother was convinced that Asabi would never find a husband. But, could you really blame her? Asabi wasn't beautiful according to the standards, she was a headstrong, defiant and sharp-tongued woman. To make matters worse, Asabi had her head cleanly shaven. Only widows shaved their head, not young women hoping to catch the eyes of eligible young men. This book is centred around the lives of four women, the defiant Asabi, the raving mad Bejide, the industrious Asiyah and the ever passionate Omotola.

It comes as a surprise to her to find herself attracted to Iseul, a former member of the Korean special forces and the King's nephew.

Will Ifedayo take a leap of faith and embrace a calm, soothing, and healing love like morning dew, or will she keep herself shrouded in the comfort zone of her insecurities?

magic at midnight: second kiss

Fali has always seen Ademola, the first son of King Essien, High Chief of Kezran, and the second in line to the throne of Idia as a brother, owing largely to the fact that he is her best friend’s brother and she grew up seeing all his silly and childish antics. So, it comes as a surprise to her when he shows up at her doorstep on the night of Ife and Iseul’s wedding with a marriage proposal. Ademola is tired of being pushed around by his father. He has no interest in ruling Idia and thankfully, Leah is there to fulfil that duty. But he most definitely will not prove his usefulness to the crown by getting into an arranged marriage. There is only one solution to the problem: marriage to the woman he has been in love with since he was a child.
