Sheena and Vinayak are doctors in the same dental institute, but their paths would never have crossed if Sheena’s deception hadn’t woven a web of lies in which Vinayak became entangled. Sheena has claimed a fake engagement and
surprisingly, Vinayak agrees to let it go on.
But as attraction between them grows, Sheena knows this time she has gone too far. Fake engagement can never lead to real love.


Excerpt:

She didn’t have any luck in love. All her so-called suitors had brought was trouble on her head. And now she had got into hot water with the most eligible bachelor of the institute, the Head of Orthodontics and an aristocrat to boot.
How did she do this? Talk about messing up her chances. She had to get out of this quagmire.
He opened his mouth but before he could make yet another cutting remark, she dived in.
‘You were a good choice,’ she confessed. ‘You never attend the parties and hardly the cultural programs. I thought you’d never catch wind of it.’
‘What did you get out of it?’
‘I – oh peace of mind for eight months.’
‘Eight months?’ He looked thunderstruck. Obviously unable to process her final blow, he sank down into his chair. ‘You’ve been carrying out this – this masquerade for eight months?’

Book under Spotlight: Mita’s Dilemma by Sudesna Ghosh

Hi folks, today I have author Sudesna Ghosh’s book, Mita’s Dilemma under the spotlight. Check it out and don’t miss reading the delectable excerpt from the book.

Blurb
Newly single and fresh into a great job, Mita isn’t looking for a relationship. There’s her sweet, good looking colleague who reminds her of someone she’d rather forget. And then there’s the temptation of no strings attached pleasure. She is a woman trying to figure out what she wants and she’s in no hurry — until a furry little creature comes into her life, forcing her to make a choice.
It’s sexy. It’s cute. It’s heart-warming.
A romantic comedy with heart set in Kolkata, India.

Excerpt
Mita tried not to ogle him. His wet white shirt and facial hair reminded her of Shah Rukh Khan dancing in the rain in Dilwale. He came in and threw off his shoes. His shirt followed. Now she was admiring his strong abdomen and his broad chest. A perfect toasty brown.

“Will you stop staring and get me a towel?” He sounded annoyed.

Mita got him one and pointed him in the direction of the bathroom. Surely, he couldn’t take his jeans off in her living room. She shouted after him, “I was not staring at you!”

Facing her with a seductive look, he replied, “That’s okay. You can stare.”

She rolled her eyes, letting him go inside for a hot shower. She had turned on the geyser for herself but she wasn’t that wet so she could wait. Ruchi called to check if she’d reached home safely.

She told her that she was fine, adding, “Suraj is staying over tonight.”

Her friend got excited, asking her if this was wise considering they were colleagues and that he looked like her ex. Mita promised her she’d go straight to bed. Alone. Suraj could sleep on the divan. It was cozy.

He came out wearing the towel around his waist.

Grinning, he asked, “Do you have anything I could wear for the night?”

About the Author

Book Release Day for Physiology of Love #romance #novella

Hi folks,

I’m happy to share the book release of Physiology of Love with all of you. Hope you’ll check it out and enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed penning this novella. It’s the story of Dr. Aashita and Dr. Hardik, professors working in a medical institute who struggle to find their HEA. In the pandemic times, it didn’t look like it would see the published status, but thankfully it got done and is now up at Amazon kindle. Yay! Excuse me for the happy dance 🙂

🥳🥳💃💃😊😊

Sharing below the details of the book.

Blurb:

Dr. Hardik Kashyap is looking forward to a new job and to deepen his friendship with lovely Dr. Aashita when he joins as HOD in Physiology at Central Medical Institute. Unfortunately, his expectations smash to bits. His start at his new post is far from amiable, and as for Dr. Aashita, she sends a shower of angry sparks his way at every meeting.
He is willing to keep things at the friendship level, but it seems nothing works with her.
As a physiologist, he’s well versed in the regulations of the body functions and the working of the mind, but he just can’t seem to get a handle on the physiology of love.

Excerpt:

‘Please, Aashita, let’s discuss this calmly –’
She cast him a smoldering glance and he corrected hastily, ‘Dr. Aashita – ma’am. Why don’t you sit down?’
‘I can listen just as well standing.’ She stood upright and folded her arms. ‘So why exactly did you change the schedule?’
Hardik looked at her, still not believing she’d gone into this attacking mode. He spread his hands in a pacifying gesture. ‘I thought we could work together, you know, seeing how well we got along when you came for the exam at my college. We enjoyed the same food choices together and went sight-seeing and trekking…’ He waited for a reaction and tagged on, ‘I still have the pinecones you painted one evening. Wasn’t that fun?’ When she stiffened and didn’t make any reply, he tried again, spreading his hands in a placating way, ‘As the Head, it’s my job to assign the classes –’
‘So you came prepared to walk all over everyone.’ She unfolded an arm to make a walking gesture with two fingers on his desk top that at any other moment would have been comical. But confronted with her snapping gaze, laughter was the last thing on his mind. ‘Very well, if that’s your way, I should learn to put up with it.’
‘No! Aashita, listen –’ Hardik tried to find the words, but she was gone. He half rose then sat down again. A frown creased his forehead. It hadn’t been his fault that she didn’t get the schedule and the words were completely uncalled for. How could he understand what had made her do this? A slow anger at her unjustified rage began to simmer within him.

Give Yourself Permission to Break These 3 Writing Rules: Guest post by Desiree from Reedsy

Hello everyone!

Today I have at my blog a special guest, Desiree Joy Villena who is a writer with Reedsy, a service for authors. She has written many posts about writing and publishing for Write To Done, The Write Life, Electric Literature, and many more sites in the publishing industry. She has a fantastic range of resources to impart and is helpful enough to share some of that knowledge here.

So here’s a guest post related to writing which many of you will find very, very useful. Over to Desiree and her topic for today that is:

Give Yourself Permission to Break These 3 Writing Rules:

Are you chipping away at a manuscript? Chances are, you’re already looking forward to hitting the period key for the final time and typing out a triumphant, all-caps “THE END”. But whether you’re plotting to take Kindle Direct Publishing by storm or wondering when to start putting out feelers for an agent, it’s important not to get too ahead of yourself. After all, you can’t get published until you’ve got an actual book in hand.

If you’re working on a book, you probably enjoy writing. But getting a manuscript over the finish line can still feel like a stressful, nerve-wracking process. With so many writing rules you’re supposed to follow, it’s hard not to find yourself freezing up on occasion. Can you even type out so much as a sentence without flouting some legendary writer’s oft-repeated advice?

Write for yourself… but keep an eye on the market.

Paint a picture with your words… but don’t make it purple.

Choose strong, precise verbs… unless they’re used in place of “said”.

With so many contradictory rules floating around, you might find yourself overthinking every word you type — making it impossible to finish (let alone publish) your book. Luckily, you don’t have to follow every piece of advice to craft a killer story. In fact, here are three writing rules you should feel free to break.

1. Write from an outline
Some authors swear by outlines. But if you’re not one of them, don’t feel like you have to fake it. If it goes against your natural bend towards spontaneity, you might end up forcing your plot down an unnatural direction, leaving you with stilted prose and cardboard characters.

Also, you might very well start from an outline, only find yourself diverging from it as you go from bare-bones idea to a fleshed-out story. Your characters, after all, will change as you write them. Feel free to explore the tantalizing new paths they’ll inevitably want to drag you down, even if you end up throwing your old outline in the dustbin.

2. Write every day
Everyone has off days, and it can be instructive to work through them. But if you consistently force yourself to write when you’re really, really not feeling it, you’ll likely exhaust yourself without even producing much usable prose. The last thing you want is for writing to feel like a chore. Sure, it’s work, but it should be joyful work.

The next time you find yourself well and truly stuck, give yourself permission to do something else. You don’t even have to step away from your manuscript entirely — after all, finishing a book involves so much more than just the actual writing. If drafting feels like pulling teeth, try spending the day talking yourself through a complicated plot point, or diving into some research for an upcoming scene. And most importantly, don’t make yourself feel guilty about it!
3. Write what you know
This one’s probably the most commonly cited writing rule of all, but that doesn’t mean you should live and die by it. At the very least, you can interpret it elastically.

Take it from Ursula K. Le Guin, the legendary writer of sci-fi and fantasy. Now known for her wildly original tales of spaceflight and wizardry, she once got the usual advice: write what you know. And what did Le Guin have to say about that? “I think it’s a very good rule and have always obeyed it. I write about imaginary countries, alien societies on other planets, dragons, wizards, the Napa Valley in 22002. I know these things. I know them better than anybody else possibly could, so it’s my duty to testify about them.”

So change that rule to, Don’t write what you know — write what you want to know. Or maybe just remind yourself that you know more than you think. Once you give your imagination permission to roam, you’ll be able to write your book in the spirit of joyful discovery.

*

A big thank you, Desiree, for this wonderful post which will surely benefit the writers. Most of the author community is riddled with uncertainties and hemmed in by the rules. While rules are important as they anchor the structure of writing, it is also important to know that rules should never interfere with creativity, but rather harness and guide it. Thanks for pointing this out in a lovely post.

Dear writers, have you found any rules related to writing which you feel are better cast off? Or a rule you found annoying, but had to grin and bear it? Do share in the comments! Would love to hear from you.

#review #ATwistofFate #historical #fiction

Today I’m sharing a review from blogger, reviewer and editor Inderpreet for historical fiction A Twist of Fate. This is what she has to say about this romantic suspense story set in ancient India.

A well written, pacy romance thriller.
Historical romance with intrigue and spies.
King, thugs, enemies, con men and a plot twisted with love.
Strong heroine, wise, intelligent and a smart woman. The handsome, charming hero is shrouded in mystery that begs to be unraveled.
A book with romance and mystery and a thrilling twist, romance from the unlikeliest of places.
The setting and characterization is well etched.
I want to read the other books in this series.

Thank you, Inderpreet.
