The hottest actor in Bollywood, Vikram Raina has found love countless times – when he’s playing a role. In real life, he’s given up on finding a soul-deep connection and prefers to focus entirely on his career. Until at a masquerade ball, one woman leaves him craving more…
Naina Menon’s first impression of drop-dead gorgeous Vikram left much to be desired. But then one heart-stopping night showed her there’s so much more to him than his celebrity persona.
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
The masquerade ball engaged me from the start, the romance and the secrets the perfect foil for this modern-day Cinderella romance.
Naina may be struggling financially, but she’s self-reliant and knows what she wants, as Vikram finds out. First in a verbal sparring match and then in an unexpected passionate encounter. Vikram, the modern-day prince, in this story is left playing catch-up after every encounter with Naina despite his player status and wealth. The characters are full of angst and conflict, but they are easy to like, and you want them to get their chance of happiness.
Partly, set in an idyllic island location this romance overcomes the inevitable conflicts to give the couple a fairytale ending. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
