The Maharaja’s Fake Fiancée by Alisha Kay

Genre Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

A scandal-averse Maharaja.

A free-spirited actress.

What do you get when you throw them together and add a fake engagement to the mix?

Either a match made-in-heaven or a royal disaster.

Nivy Sharma knows exactly what she needs – the freedom to be herself and follow her passion. Guess what she doesn’t need? A tailor-made husband.

When her meddlesome mother tries to throw her into the arms of a mom-approved suitor, Nivy runs the other way.

Right into the arms of the man who shattered her heart five years ago.

His Highness Veerendra Singh can recognize a pain-in-the-ass when he sees it. Especially when it falls into his arms.

Even if said pain-in-the-ass has legs that go on forever and lush lips that just beg to be kissed, Veer vows to run the other way. As he did once before.

But, when the marriage-minded princess of Tejpur sets her sights on him, Veer runs back into Nivy’s arms to propose a fake engagement.

When ‘fake’ starts to feel very real, Nivy and Veer have to decide what is important – long-held prejudices or the chance for a life with the only person they’ve ever loved.

Will this be their second chance at love or will their broken past ruin their hope for a shared future?

Know the Hero from The Maharaja’s Fake Fiancée

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Veer is a gamer. So, if he’s bored, he’s most likely shooting up bad guys or wrecking super cars on his phone.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

A Maharaja Mac burger, and a cup of filter coffee strong enough to melt an engine.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Jeans and a t-shirt.

Does he know how to fix things?

Only computers.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He tried to date a fellow royal, Princess Anika Dogra. That was a disaster because Veer has no interest in spoilt princesses.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He treats them as if they are adults.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Grumpy until he has his first cup of coffee.

Can he use chopsticks?

Like a pro.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He loves strong coffee, with a dash of milk. No sugar.

What apps would he have on his phone?


Android or iPhone?


Beard or clean-shaven?


Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

A gold earring that has been passed down for generations in his family. The earring that every Maharaja of Devgarh has worn on formal occasions.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He has a fleet of cars, but he’s really attached to his souped-up Harley Davidson.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, because that is part of the Indian way of life.
