Her Secret Husband by Sundari Venkatraman is the book 3 in the series Marriages Made in India. This book again is about the well known Maheshwari Family whom we met in the book1. Sundari perfectly delineates the emotional as well as sensual element in the novella.
The cover of the book always catch the attention of the readers when it comes to the marriage series. I have read her previous two novellas and her covers are just amazing.
The title is intriguing as the reader is really curious to know about whose the Secret Husband and what the story is about. This title gives us many ideas about the story but again the author surprise us with her own unique concept.
The Maheshwaris are back, a little secretly this time!
What do you do if you find a man who looks like chocolate, speaks like warm syrup, looks at you like you were the most precious cake ever created, and he can bake too? You marry him, even if in secret.
Ruma Malhotra falls head over heels and a little more in love with Lakshman Maheshwari, but her parents insist that she marry a rich businessman of their choice. When Ruma’s only option is to marry Lakshman in secret, she is left torn between her love for her parents and her passion for Lakshman. Is a secret marriage the solution or will it lead the way to a public disappointment?
Lakshman Maheshwari falls in love with Ruma Malhotra the first time he sets his eyes on her in Ranveer’s office. Will he agree to marry Ruma in secret even if it means betraying his parents?
Psst… Those who have read THE MALHOTRA BRIDE might be happy to reconnect with Sunita & Akshay Malhotra in this one.
*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.
The plot is beautifully woven around Ruma Malhotra and Lakshman Maheshwari. They seem to have a breathtaking chemistry but face many problems as Ruma’s father fixes her marriage with someone she doesn’t want to marry.
Sundari seems to me a skilled artist who has amazingly crafted her characters. Ruma and Lakshman’s characters are the most loved. They are round characters. They are madly in love. The chemistry they share is phenomenal.
The best part of Sundari’s books is her writing style which is simple yet elegant. Those who want to read as a starter base can easily pick up her novellas as they are best way to know more about Indian culture and the delicate aspects she delineates though not focussing on them yet just touching it. Her writing makes her magnificent. She knows how maintain a balance when it comes to writing an intimate scene. The next best part is, her work is devoid of editing errors. This book is A major shoutout for romance lovers.
