On this year’s Holi festival, feisty Malini Thakur has arranged an innocuous but flawless revenge on the man who broke her sister’s heart. But when the revenge is accidentally enacted on the Earl of Dashwood — the man who broke her own heart five years ago — Malini sees only one way to avoid further embarrassment and heartbreak. She must run away. Again.

Aditya Bose, the Earl of Dashwood, is done running from the scorching kiss and Malini’s past rebuffs afterward. Even after five years of law practice in India, he couldn’t forget her. So when he learns of wedding bells for a certain Miss Thakur, to his own younger brother, he has to rush back to England for Malini. There is undoubtedly only one way to convince her he deserves another chance: run after her.

But when the rainstorm rages and traps them in a cottage, would he gather the courage to make his case? Would she be brave enough to face heartbreaking answers? Or will they choose to leave the past behind and seduce each other into love?
