It's the season of love and as Africans we celebrate love as passionately as anyone else. If you don't have someone to share the special occasion. Don't worry because we've got you covered.
Here are five book boyfriends/girlfriends who will sweep you off your feet and shower you with affection, the African way.
Let's start with a man named Lord.
Yep, that's his first name and not a title. Who doesn't want to read a book with a character named Lord. 😀
Quirky name aside, Lord Mckenzie is a swoon-worthy character and matched with Chantelle Sah, their chemistry steams up the pages.
I love that this author delivers hot scenes and still gives you tender moments that makes you sigh with pleasure.
