Tanaya Shah longs for the wonderful world of Paris, the world that she fell in love with while watching Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina—so when a proposal comes along for an arranged marriage with a man who is living in Paris, Tanaya seizes the chance. But once she lands in the city, she shuns the match. A stroke of luck turns Tanaya into a supermodel, and soon the traditional girl is cavorting with rock stars and is disowned by her family.
In her new whirlwind life, she is reintroduced to the man she was supposed to marry, the man she now realizes she should have never walked away from, the man who is her only connection to the family she longs to reconcile with, if only it’s not too late.

A new novel takes a look at young women trying to navigate the world of modeling and balance hot careers with the other priorities in their lives. Beautiful Tanaya Shah leaves her home outside of Mumbai, India, to meet Tariq, the man her grandfather wants her to marry, in Paris. Although Tanaya has always longed to visit Paris, she is reluctant to marry and the engagement is broken off. Rather than return home, Tanaya decides to stay in Paris against her family's wishes. A one-time waitressing job at a fashion show leads to a chance turn on a runway when one of the models gets hurt, and it isn't long before a talent scout convinces Tanaya to give modeling a go. After a rocky start, Tanaya finds herself in the epicenter of the fashion world, New York, her star in swift ascent. But doubts about her newfound career and all it entails, as well as a desire to stay true to her Muslin heritage and reconcile with her family, nag at her. An engaging and sweet tale.
