I was thrilled to be asked to review Finding the Angel via a copy provided by the author, because I had read the “Look Inside” section of the book and was already intrigued. And I was not disappointed. Set in contemporary Bombay and in the royal palace of the Ranaut family, this debut novel is a sizzling interplay between a feisty heroine and an arrogant hero. Shefali is an art curator who falls in love with Aryan, the Prince of the Ranaut dynasty while cataloguing their artifacts. But just as the love (lust?) becomes too much for her, she runs away. Unfortunately, her sudden departure coincides with the disappearance of The Angel, the Faberge which has been in the Ranaut family for generations. With the burden of being considered a thief and the resultant effects of the company she works for, Shefali must find a way to redeem herself in the eyes of the man she loves, who is sure of her guilt.
I particularly liked the warmth of Aryan’s relationship with his mother, and Shefali’s with her Auntie, and the subtle secondary character of the Ranaut family servant, Harilal.
The attraction, anger, lust, and repartee between the protagonists, as well as the spicy and sizzling love scenes are sure to whet your appetite if you like romances set in contemporary India, with a bit of ‘royal’ intrigue thrown in. It will carry you through ups and downs of a thrilling romance and lead to a satisfying end.
