About The Book:
Sheetal Dhanraj gave up her first and only love when she married the multimillionaire playboy her parents chose for her. Now a trophy wife, entrepreneur and mother to eight-year-old Yash, she’s the envy of every woman in Raigun, India. But their mansion’s gilded walls conceal lies and secrets that threaten the lives of Sheetal and her son.
When escalating threats force her to choose between the laws of culture she lives by and the son she lives for, Sheetal must destroy Yash’s future in order to escape before greed, infidelity and deceit destroy their only chance at freedom.
