Krish Dev needs to find a bride—and quick! With a marriage arranged by his father looming, Krish finds the key to his freedom in Maya Shome, but is this dazzling beauty really all she seems…?
Maya has only one thing in mind: revenge. But when the host of the most exclusive high society party asks her to dance what is meant to be an innocent tango leads to an engagement to Krish—her enemy’s son!
Arranging their own marriage could work to their advantage…if they can resist mixing business with pleasure!
The story is a Mills and Boon romance, set in India with Indian characters. It revolves around the two protagonists Maya and Krish and the theme of revenge. Maya has a grudge against Krish’s father who ruined her father and thereby made her childhood a misery. Krish on the other hand wants to fight free of his father’s domination. Both meet with different agendas in mind but find it hard to resist each other.
I love Adite’s writing style and descriptions. She has a racy way of telling the tale which makes the book a quick read. The heroine has suffered in her life and one really feels for her. All the typical Harlequin elements are present so it’s a treat for Mills and Boon Indian readers. The hero isn’t as Alpha as you usually see in category romance, he’s quite human and has his share of flaws as he fights the domineering father quite vividly portrayed in the story.
Read this for racy style, strong descriptions and Indian characters.
I give Adite’s debut five stars for readability (hooking the reader), four stars for concept and a good take away impression.
