Temptation in Paradise by Jyoti Singh
Now if you want to smile while reading, Temptation in Paradise by Jyoti Singh is the book for you.
Mills & Boons never had the Indian feel in the 1980s and 1990s, but with Jyoti Singh’s 2014 debut romance novel, urbane romance in India breaks the clichéd Bollywood romance and comes out in a very sensual, seductive, witty and definitely ‘possible’ way.
Temptation in Paradise is a typical story of a tall, dark and handsome guy meeting a girl who, unaware of her charm, traverses through life with very high morals and ideas. Their “entanglement” is KARMIC and the journey, very enjoyable to read.
Niki, very savvy, yet conservative, traverses through life with her strong principles, the love of her sister Tanya and her Royal Enfield 350cc. Little does she know that the ‘ORGANIC’ life she leads will see a total upheaval, when the rich, handsome, suave and somewhat reclusive Sid, marches in.
Their meeting is destined, as are the laughter, tears and all that follows.
The book is a good journey down memory lane for all who grew up reading Mills & Boons and for the Gen Next, who still believe on the beauty of romance.
