Once more I am starting the guest post series about new books, awesome characters, book reviews, authors and all that makes the life chatpata, entertaining.
So to honour my blog today we have with us the most popular Romance author whose Royal series is making waves in the romance reader circle, Devika Fernando. Today she is going to tell us about the main characters of her latest book, The Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride.
Over to you Devika.
Thank you for having me on your fabulous blog, Paromita.
And for letting me chat about the protagonists of my latest romance novel “The Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride”. I have to confess that I fall in love with every main character I ever write, and inevitably also wish every heroine could be my friend… Here’s a closer look at the two MCs of my new release.
SHE is Ashley Davies from England. Almost 30, with red hair. Together with two friends, she has her own wedding planning business, specializing in destination weddings round the globe. If her friends had to describe her, they would say she’s creative, determined and independent. But Ashley has a softer side that makes her believe in dreams and feel joy when she can make others happy. That’s why she wouldn’t want to trade her job for anything else.
Ironically, although she provides others with their ‘happily ever after’, she’s unlucky in her own love life. This is the first time she’s traveling to India and organizing a royal wedding, and a lot depends on her.
If I had to find an actress for a movie adaption of my novel (hey, I’m allowed to dream! *wink*), I would cast Lily James.
HE is Prince Vivaan Arjun Dewar of Yogeshpur (a fictitious city in Rajasthan), an Indian royal. Roughly 30, tall with chiseled features. He’s the younger of two princes and the one with the business mind. Although he fulfils his obligations, he’s always had a bit of a rebellious streak and feels more at home traveling the world than lording it over others and suffering through ceremonies. His brother Manish is about to enter into an arranged marriage—not exactly the right time and place for Vivaan to fall head over heels in love with the English wedding planner. Once she learns about his true identity, all bets are off…
The Prince doesn’t really have friends, but those who know him would probably describe him as dedicated, intelligent and open-minded.
I didn’t picture anyone specific while writing the hero, but I’d love to cast Varun Dhawan as this irresistible Indian prince.
About The Book
Title: The Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride
Series: Royal Romance (Romancing the Royals Book 4)
Wedding planner Ashley Davies has left England behind to organize a royal wedding in India. She’s expected a cultural shock and lots of unforgettable memories – but never in a million years would she have thought she’d fall in love. When the mysterious and irresistible Vivaan turns out to be none other than an Indian prince, it’s time for her to make a decision: risk everything for the sake of what feels like so much more than a holiday fling, or resist their forbidden attraction and save her job as well as her heart?
Prince Vivaan of Yogeshpur certainly doesn’t want to get involved in the organization of his brother’s grand wedding, but then a free-spirited and smart redhead from England captures his interest. Suddenly he finds himself eager to get to know a woman who would never receive his mother’s royal seal of approval. Should he give in to his feelings or stay away from the ‘scandalous’ wedding planner?
