MY REVIEW: I gave this one This is my first read by this author. She completely captures your attention with these characters, her ability to draw you into the story and keeping you until last page. This starts and ends in tragedy, suspense and drama. India not having the option of being defiant, excepts the responsibility of service to her country and enters into an arranged marriage. Before the honeymoon or consummation of the marriage tragedy strikes leaving her a widow and in a coma for weeks. Omar is definitely an alpha male in every way, has never wanted to be king or tied down to one woman. As fate would have it, due to his brother’s untimely death, he is next in line for the throne and is customary to inherit his brother’s widow and care for her. There is no misunderstanding that these two have some steamy chemistry and it began the first day they met. Before they can move pass all that has happen, there is the matter of finding out who caused the accident that took his brother’s life and clearing India’s name because she is being framed for it. Every time you think you have this case solved some new evidence is produce making India appear guilty. That coupled with throne being challenge due to Omar’s true heritage and having a wife in the true sense, you have a book full of drama, suspense, romance and secrets that could threaten everything. India’s character reminded me in some ways of Prince Diana with her charities. I really enjoyed this one and is worth every bit of the rating given and more. I recommend this to anyone that would enjoy a romantic suspense and with cultural elements.
