How To Love An Ogre by Zee Monodee


It is a truth universally acknowledged that an Indian-origin girl over the age of eighteen must be in want of a husband …

Tired of her mother’s relentless matchmaking, young & successful interior designer Diya Hemant is determined to find her Prince Charming on her terms. Armed with a definitive list of requirements, she is sure she’ll know Mr. Right when she meets him. If only Fate would stop throwing frogs along her path.

British widower & single father Trent Garrison thought coming to live in sunny Mauritius would be a new beginning for him and his two young sons. He craves peace & quiet, and finding love is not on his radar. If only Fate would stop throwing airhead princess-types along his route.

When Diya meets Trent, it is hate at first sight.

Then, she meets Gareth, who embodies every quality she has on her list. But the one she’s finding at every corner is Trent!

Though not averse to kissing a frog in the hope that it might reveal a prince, she draws the line before this surly man, who brings to mind an ogre of the worst kind.

But is Trent really all wrong for her? Can this modern-day princess overcome her own expectations and see beyond the ogre to the man beneath?

If you love Pride and Prejudice retellings, enemies to lovers tales, witty banter, & overbearing families, then you will enjoy this coming-of-age story where the youngest of the Hemant sisters finds that, sometimes, love might be hiding right under your nose on the sultry west coast of Mauritius.

“This is a terrific book. I really love this author’s writing. She weaves in culture, romance, drama, and really great characters into her stories…So, download this book…but do it on when you have time to read….otherwise, you’ll be like me, late to work, bleary eyed, and struggling to participate in life when all you want to know is how the book ends!” – Amazon reviewer
