I was on a long hiatus from the Mills & Boon romances and I had never read a Mills & Boon book by an Indian author, so when I picked up Adite Banerje’s Indian Tycoon’s Marriage Deal I was pretty excited to read the book. As I started reading the book I started falling in Love with the characters.
Krish ‘s heart is looking for escape, an escape from his father’s ways and his grand plans for his business without consideration for his son. The only way for Krish is to marry a girl of his choice and he chooses Maya Shome. To avoid becoming a business deal for his father he decides to make a deal of his own. Maya’s heart is looking for revenge, for she blames KD for all the problems in her life and also for her father’s death. When the Krish approaches her with a marriage deal, she sees this as a perfect opportunity to seek revenge on his father. Maya agrees to Krish’s deal and marries him.
When the two hearts meet though, love blossoms. The hearts fight its presence, but eventually the heart gets what the heart wants. When romance blooms, Maya knows that she cannot give into her heart’s desire, because if Krish knew her reason to make the deal and her deception he would never accept her. What follows is twists and turns down the road that leads to the heart getting what it wants. What would Mills & Boon be without its happy ending!!!!
The characters of the book are well thought out and lovable. Adite has, etched out Maya and Krish so well and has portrayed the conflict between their hearts and minds beautifully. The descriptions of the places and the scenes and emotions are so poetic; the poet in me just loved reading that. The romance and the interactions between Maya and Krish again develop really well all through the book.
I would rate the book 4 on 5 stars as I absolutely loved it. It is a perfect romantic read for anyone looking for a good romantic book. I am glad that this was the book that introduced me to Indian Mills & Boon Romances and looking forward to read many more.
