One of my favourite authors in Indireads, Zeenat Mahal’s Haveli and Contract have been on the top 100 bestselling romance novel charts of Amazon ever since they have been published. I am very excited to put forth the cover reveal of her new novel due to be released on Valentine’s Day (Feb 14, 2015). I will be reviewing the book soon so wait for the blog. In the meanwhile here is the cover reveal!
Zoella’s been in love with Fardeen, her best friend’s gorgeous older brother, since she was ten, but he’s always seen her as a ‘good girl’—not his type—and he can barely remember her name. Besides, he’s engaged to a gorgeous leggy socialite, someone from the same rarefied social strata as the imposing Malik family.
Zoella has no chance with him.
Until a brutal accident leaves Fardeen scarred and disfigured, that is. Suddenly bereft of a fiancee, Fardeen is bitterly caustic, a shell of the man he used to be, a beast that has broken out of the fairy tale world he once lived in. And a twist of fate lands him his very own princess—Zoella.
The beast, however, is a far cry from the Fardeen of her dreams. Stripped of her illusions, Zoella creates her own twist in the fairy tale, beating him at his own game.
