''Based on the Historical personages and facts the novel arrests the interest and attention of the reader from first to last. There is an incessant flow in the moving narration of events. Purushotam Pomal has done a yeoman's service by pulling out an immortal true story of unrequited love from the dust-bin of history. Transliteration in English is an appreciable attempt at widening the scope of this historical novel for the English reading world.' RAJAN VISHAL, I.A.S. Dist. Collector & D.M. Jalore (Raj) " Searching for light in the dark pages of history. The storyline of the novel grips the reader and one is forced to turn the pages till he reaches the end. I can vouch for this as I had the same experience." Rajendra Rajan 'Suchitaayan', Begusarai, Bihar "In a piece of historical work, if the author focuses solely on describing the historical events, the narrative becomes very tedious. Pomalji has done an excellent job of balancing the narative with ingenuity and turned out an extremely enjoyable novel. Congratulations." Dr. Suraj Paaliwal. Wardha "The list of great works of literature which have given a new direction to the development of genere of Historical Novels in Hindi would be incomplete without "Shahzaadi Firoza", authored by Shri Pomal. It is a unique creation based on the tragic love story of a Muslim Princess and a Rajput Prince. The author has successfully woven the delicate fabric of the story which reaches out to the readers across the pages of history. The author has found an exquisite balance between the narration and the narrative. The novel is a beautiful example of confluence of history, legend and emotional quotient of a love story."

Can a reluctant hero save a runaway princess without losing his own heart? Adam McKendrick has earned the title “the Bountiful Baron” because of his reputation for helping beautiful blondes in trouble. When a lucky hand at cards wins him an ancient hunting lodge, he travels to the wilds of Scotland hoping to escape his reputation—and the hordes of women pursuing him. He certainly doesn’t expect his prize to include yet another damsel in distress looking for a hero. Princess Giana has fled her kingdom—and the deadly assassins pursuing her—with only a handful of loyal staff to protect her. When the gorgeous gambler shows up at her refuge to claim his winnings, she has no choice but to pose as his maid.
