About the Book

From the moment Emerald boarded the ship to India, she knew she was in for an exciting journey. Having never journeyed abroad before, she simply could not wait to see what these mystical lands had in store for her. She felt as though this would be the greatest adventure of her life. And it was. Little did she know, the true adventure had nothing to do with magic, snakes or elephants as her mother believed it would. No; the greatest, most wonderful adventure in Miss Emerald Dawson’s life was waiting for her in the seemingly inconsequential town of Shimla, in the form of a mysterious royal who liked to frequent the local library. What started as brief eye contact in a crowd soon grew into a connection that would forever change both of their lives. However, Miss Dawson could not help but ask herself: is it proper? Can a love between a sheltered young woman from London and a Maharaja truly survive? Emerald had no way to find out except experience it for herself. What had she gotten herself into? She didn’t know. All she knew was that she certainly never wanted to get out of it.

About the Author

Puja Miri Yajnik grew up in the small hill town of Shillong in the northeast of India. Unsurprisingly, she excelled in the subject of English at school; this resulted in her taking an early interest in fiction writing, with a particular fondness for historical romances. Thus, she has been writing novels and short stories for many years, her previous work including ‘Two Friends: Cloudy and Windy’, ‘The Curse of the Winwoods’ and ‘My Strange Duke’, as well as her IGTV series known as ‘World Story Land’. In addition to her aptitude for English, she possesses a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, thus giving her a deep understanding of the human mind which she consistently applies when writing her characters. Additionally, having lived in both India and the United Kingdom, she possesses an extensive knowledge of both cultures and often incorporates said knowledge into her works. From the sparsely populated tranquility of Shillong to the hustle and bustle of London, she has truly seen all sorts of environments, thus inspiring her to merge them together in romantic tales of travel, friendship, love, mystery and self-discovery.
