The main topic of this book is arranged marriage. So it is self explanatory to indicate what this book is about. There is quite a bit of doubt and confusion in the west; how the people in India get married through arranged marriage system without seeing or knowing the spouse. The arranged marriage is a contract of co-existence for life signed in the presence of the guardians of faith, guardians and guarantors of contract and well wishers. We take marriage for granted without knowing the intricacies of married life. It is not so. To stay married is the highest priority of life. It is much higher than signing a contract to get a job and make money and even obeying the faith values, because the faith can be achieved through values and love of married life. In arranged marriage the necessities of life are taken into consideration not the enjoyment for a few days. It is a contract signed in good faith. The acceptance of the spouse is the most important factor for the marriage to last forever. This factor is drilled into the couple by the elders to realize the requirements of the spouse. Realizing and fulfilling those requirements makes the marriage last forever. There are some other short stories in the book. Most of those stories are true but some are imaginary as well. So read it and find out what the writer is trying to convey and justify.

There is no denying Ms. Beverley is a master storyteller and perhaps because of this political incorrectness she delivers a powerfully fresh stage for her story." ~Tara A. Green Ruined through her vile brother's schemes, Eleanor Chivenham is offered rescue by marriage to a rake with an infamous French mistress. Eleanor accepts, determined to treat the arranged marriage with cool dignity. Then she meets Nicholas Delaney. Not only does he stir her senses, but the trouble and pain beneath his smooth exterior reaches her heart. Nicholas is indeed troubled. While serving his country by seducing secrets out of a French spy, he is persuaded to marry Eleanor to protect his family's honor. But such chivalry runs counter to his carefully wrought rogue image, and extends the life-threatening plots shadowing him to Eleanor. To assist, Nicholas re-assembles the Company of Rogues, a schoolboy group he started years before. But not even they can dampen Eleanor's fighting wit that is quickly unmasking their enemy and testing Nicholas' formidable will.
