Dancing with the enemy

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!

‘This marriage would be strictly in name only. Or the deal is off.’
Krish laughed. The sound waves reverberated inside her, making her feel all warm and fuzzy.
‘You mean leave sex out of it?’
Krish’s dark eyes seemed to pick out her body vibrations even before she could.
‘Are you absolutely sure about that?’
Maya seethed. She wished she could wipe that all-knowing look off his face. If only she didn’t feel this strong surge of attraction for him—but that was her secret to keep…just one of many.
‘I’m sure you can find a discreet way of taking care of that side of things for yourself.’
He clicked his tongue in mock disapproval. ‘You haven’t been paying attention, jaaneman.’
Maya was back to worrying her lower lip and Krish leaned across the table to run a finger across her mouth.
‘I’ve told you before that I’m a one-woman guy. And I don’t share what’s mine.’
Her lips tingled at his touch even as his words held out a deep, velvety promise that made her breath catch.
Breathe, Maya, breathe! She pulled away and stuttered, ‘I…I mean it…No sex or the deal is off.’

Praise for the book
Renita D’silva, bestselling author of Monsoon Memories says: “This is a great read which hooks you from the first page. The characters are brilliantly realized and you can identify with each one. Loved Maya, she is so feisty and full of life. The chemistry between Krish and Maya is there right from the first page and I for one wanted to read on to find out more. There is so much more to this book than the romance between the two main characters - there is family drama, tension, conflict. Loved it. Can definitely see this one as a Bollywood blockbuster one day.”
