Was the first man you fell for a brooding desert prince? Or better still, a cruelly handsome feudal lord? Are you a spirited beauty, your fire contained—but only just—by the clinging brocade of your lehenga’s choli? A delicious Kama Kahani is sure to strike your fancy. Devastatingly handsome Rajput lothario Shivendra of Jaigarh has a formidable reputation—until he meets his match in bewitching Nandini, the headstrong daughter of an impoverished zamindar from Multan. He decides he must have Nandini as his mistress, but she is determined to resist his indecent proposal, attracted as she is to him. Shivendra is persistent, however, and defies convention to bring them together illicitly. But for how long, and to what end? Through desert sandstorms and Mughal camps, the epic love story of the yuvraj and his impetuous lover unfolds.
About the Author
Sanyogita Rathore read her first romance novel at the impressionable age of thirteen in boarding school and has been hooked ever since. The next five years saw her breaking every rule in boarding school from bunking games and reading romance under the bed to hiding in her cupboard with a tiny torch to guide her through the magical story while the matron forced the others to eat inedible dinner. Sanyogita now lives in a dilapidated, crumbling fort atop a mountain somewhere in Rajasthan with her stubborn pet camel Mirchi who refuses to venture outside the fort into the hot desert. She spends most days reading or gossiping on her canopied terrace with a bottle of champagne and chocolate dipped fruit on the side, and the outline of the Aravalli range in the background. When she is not luxuriating, she is painstakingly carving romance stories into the dried up bark of wood to ensure tradition is preserved while her shiny new laptop begs to be used.
