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 by Empi Baryeh 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. Our hero, Thane, and our heroine, Naaki (he’s American and White, she’s African and Black) seem to be a good match and the conflict between them keeps the story interesting...the last thing Naaki wants to do is have an affair with the man in control of her career advancement. But being the hunk that Thane is, avoiding temptation is easier said than done. As far as Thane is concerned, Naaki is as exotic as her culture and the temptation to seduce her is even harder for him to resist...For a debut author, the book is very well done. – Taylor, reviewer
