House of Joy

When faced with an impossible ethical quandary, Hamida goes against everything she believes and risks her life to help abused Queen Mariyam escape the heavily guarded harem. Inspired by the epic legends of Indian history, Shekar presents a swashbuckling action-adventure romance centered on strong women who battle each other as well as a world in danger of entering their sacred space.
