The winners have been given an exclusive opportunity to feature on the covers of Mills an Boon Novels. rohit Raghav and Saumya have already featured on the cover of Astha Atray's Debut Novel 'His Monsoon Bride'. The idea behind picking Indian models is to give Mills and Boon an Indian touch.
Rohit Raghav and Saumya are from Delhi and could not believe when the results of the contest were announced. The idea was to get people who had very next-door kind of faces, says the author of the book. Rohit and Saumya made the perfect couple with their fresh and Next door look.
