Book Review: The Wooing of the Shrew by Sundari Venkatraman

With this sizzling line, Dayanita is introduced to the readers. That caught my attention and I could tell that this is not going to be a demure heroine. The cover is like a continuity of a tale and keeping the royal tradition of Ms. Venkatraman's past books, this book too had the exact right amount of romance and royalty. 

Glamour and the blitzy social life screams of a society that makes love seem like a trivial matter.  But when love does happen, it takes the shape of a fairy tale. Harshvardhan is a Prince and an aspiring Superstar. But more than that, he is blessed with a very loving personality. When he meets Princess Dayanita for the first time, it was love at first sight. 

But wooing the Princess who didn't have a very good opinion about his was not easy.  And just when he thought that he had got her pinned under his charm, she vanishes. What followed after that is a tale of misunderstanding and search. The tale is not only about a boy and a girl falling in love. Things like casting couches and way women are exploited in the film industry are brought out to a certain extent. Not only that women sometimes use these scenes to exploit men are also brought out. A very well balanced viewpoint. The courtroom scene is well etched out and I could almost hear the baritone of the lawyers. 

Lovely characterization, great setup, and steamy romance. What more would a romance reader want?

If you love romances and if you are crazy about royal romances like me - this book is for you.
