Bored with life in Delhi, Shazia ignores the intrigues of palace life, yet when her brother is taken captive she will stop at nothing to win his release. With danger on all sides, there is no right way to turn, and Shazia finds herself torn by her uncontrollable attractions to two men. Can she play the game of seduction and emerge unscathed? Or will her heart and soul be victory’s price?
The writing style from this author takes some getting used to as it was written quite poetical. I found that some sentences were too long because of this. I think it could have had the same effect if those were written in fewer words. And at times I wasn’t sure from whose point of view I was reading, from Shazia herself or from the eyes of Shakuntala. This all made it difficult for me to get into the story, as a matter of fact I didn’ get into the story.
While reading I came to the conclusion that this book just wasn’t for me, the story, pace, and the characters just didn’t appeal to me. While the blurb had sounded so nice, I quickly lost interest. However this does not mean it couldn’t be a good read for someone who loves to read historical romances, especially the one’s about India.
