The Passionate Princess starts on a mysterious note and keeps the reader turning the pages till the book is finished.
The book, The Passionate Princess is set in the 1480s, and involves cities like Indrapuri and Mahendrapuri, the character names too are in sync with the setting and are sure to transport the reader into this royal romantic tale that Sundari has so deftly weaved.
The Princess literally falls for Prince Devendra and it does not take long for them to exchange hearts.
While the young couple has already fallen for each other, and can’t wait to begin their happily ever after, the Queen mother has her own plans for their future.
This steamy love story is narrated without an iota of vulgarity but carries vivid imagery. Right from the beauty of the old cities to the attire of the royalty, it all comes to life with Sundari’s narration. The characters, especially all the female characters have a lot of depth and colour to their personalities and I love it about the book.
I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
All it took was one look. And they were in love…
Princess Hemangini is mesmerized by Prince Devendra when she falls into his arms while rushing across the royal gardens.
The Prince of Indrapuri is amazed that the Princess of Mahendrapuri is even more beautiful and graceful than what the visiting bards sang in praise of her.
Their mutual attraction blooms into love and they decide to get married. Tying the knot is easy, but consummating the marriage is another matter altogether.
As their love and passion draw them towards each other, Devendra’s mother, Queen Kanchana Devi, keeps throwing obstacles in the path of the lovers; sometimes in the name of rituals and sometimes inflicting doubts in their minds; doing her best to keep them apart.
As the frustrated bride and groom tolerate the intervening time with impatience, something happens to shake up Hemangini; something that makes her refuse to let her husband touch her.
What will the proud prince have to do to make his princess fall into his arms once again?
