The Royal House of Saene: Princess India
India Saene, Princess of Bagumi, must enter a marriage alliance to save her kingdom from an economic crisis. Tragedy strikes when her husband of a few hours is killed in an accident on the way to their honeymoon. She recovers from a coma two weeks later to discover she has been inherited by her husband’s younger brother!
Sheikh Omar El Dansuri has never wanted to be king, nor does he desire a wife. However, when his older brother dies, he not only becomes the future king of Sudar, but he also inherits his brother’s bride through an age-old tradition. Falling for the headstrong India is out of the question especially when evidence points to her as his brother’s killer.
Neither India nor Omar wanted this marriage, but the passion that burns between them cannot be denied. When India’s secret is revealed, will either of them survive the consequences?
India Saene feels she’s fallen down a patriarchal rabbit hole when she wakes from a coma to find herself married to her husband’s brother, Omar, the new would-be king. A tragic car accident only hours after her wedding has left the independent, educated woman a widow… and an inherited wife.
She’d agreed to the first arranged marriage out of service to her country, but she’d had no say in the second. To complicate matters, she can’t leave the marriage without devastating her country and insulting her husband’s country, and Omar finds evidence his brother’s death may have been murder… and India could be involved.
Explaining to Omar why she looks guilty would put others in danger and India isn’t prepared to do that. But danger is closer to her than she realizes.
India is also intensely drawn to and developing feelings for Omar… two things she hadn’t had for his brother. Finding he has feelings for her doesn’t lessen India’s misery.
As Omar works to clear India’s name, he’s blindsided when he’s challenged for the throne by his uncle.
India and Omar are great characters who maybe both have a bit too much pride. They can’t move forward without dropping their guard and it seems near impossible for them. This sensual romance is a bumpy ride with a couple of plot twists you won’t see coming, and a good case of crazy for the books.
Book two in the Royal House of Saene series delivers mystery, suspense, and romance and I highly recommend it!
