The Marriage Predicament is a story that is true not just for royalty but across all strata of our society. I loved this book for its topic, a hard-hitting truth in our society, its fast pace and the perfect well-matched main characters.

The royal customs, the traditions to be followed, the situation where the princess Yashodhara has no option but to submit to an arranged match make life difficult for her. The author, however, has spun a silver lining for her.
Much to her annoyance, the prince, Indrajeet that her mother has found is not a self-absorbed man rather one who pays attention to the little details and actions by the princess. Of course, it was not love-at-first-sight but the slow burn of an everlasting love that stems from being patient and understanding.
Yashodhara is in a fix; her husband actually worries about her and wants her to be free. Her anxiety is obvious as is her hesitation. What I loved about the book was the emotional bonding of the husband and wife. The simple gestures and the love that shone through their troubles make it an endearing read. It does not belittle the important topic of abuse at the hands of relatives.
The Marriage Predicament highlights the dilemma the victim feels, her helplessness, her fear of both the action and the consequences once others know.
The book is a crisp, engaging book by Sundari and I am already reading the second book of the series. Not only has she woven the theme of royal romance in The Marriage Predicament but made it relevant for the masses by highlighting the issue of abuse and rape.
The Marriage Predicament is a well-knit, soft romance that will ensure you read all the other books in the series.
