Having escaped an unhappy arranged marriage, Zarleena Shankar is picking up the pieces of her life. With her successful Indian bridal wear shop, Bindis & Brides, she's proving herself an astute businesswoman. Someone who can stand on her own feet, and survive without a man. So when she meets Joel Winters in her local supermarket, Zarleena remains immune to the handsome playboy's charms. She doesn't need another man to wreck her life. And with his penchant for blue-eyed blondes, Joel seems blind to the sex appeal of dark-eyed Zarleena. But an unlikely friendship forms - and Zarleena certainly needs a friend when her predatory ex-husband turns up, intent on causing trouble. Together, Zarleena and Joel plan a spectacular revenge on the man who wants to bring her down. Will they succeed? Will the bullying Armin get his comeuppance? And will romance ever blossom between this mismatched pair of schemers?
