Sired by a British peer, born of a paramour to Indian royalty, Kali Matai has been destined from birth to enthrall England’s most powerful noblemen—though she hadn’t counted on becoming their pawn. Finding herself under the control of ruthless men, who will not be moved by her legendary allure, she has no choice but to use her beauty toward their malicious and clandestine ends.

When those she holds most dear are placed in peril by backroom political dealings, she enlists some of the most formidable lords in England to thwart her enemies. But even with the help of the prominent gentlemen she has captivated, securing Kali’s freedom, her family, and the man she loves, will require her protectors stop at nothing to fulfill her desires.

My Review

This is more than a romance (there isn’t a lot of it) and very unique. I liked a lot of it, but the first half was a little slow and jumpy to me. I did love the second half when everything really started happening and she started really getting her freedom. I liked that it wasn’t in the ballrooms and that Kali was from India because it made it different. I loved how she helped her friends. It just didn’t click fully with me at times.

Kali is a woman that has been trained to please men but knows how to use that power to get things that she wants and to get what her father forces her to. She did what she had to protect those she loved and to get her freedom.

She loved two men Fitz and Rook who both played parts in helping her and both were great men. I wouldn’t mess with them after everything they did to help her. The one she ends up with is a great man.
