Sharing an excerpt today from Last Man She’d Love.

In this, Lyna is trying to make a decision. Guy is being his usual languidly sardonic self 🙂

 ………

 ‘I could remind you, but being a gentleman, I won’t.’

She choked and spluttered into laughter.

He was shaking his head in deep regret. ‘See you have forgotten how to laugh properly even.’

‘I was laughing at the thought of you being termed a gentleman,’ she derided.

‘Taken as a good hit.’ He put his hand over his heart and took a bow. ‘Though there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to keep you, I have to acknowledge that you’re leaving, so your last wishes should be respected before you sacrifice yourself on the altar of matrimony.’

She sat down slowly, her heart beat increased by a factor of ten per minute as she weighed the situation for the last time and drew in a deep breath. She put her forearms on the desk and leaned forward, looking into those dark eyes fringed by thick lashes. ‘What you just said about doing anything to keep me at work. Do you mean that?’

He leaned back, just a fraction of tension in his frame. But Lyna decided she had imagined it because his voice was as relaxed and his tone as lazily sardonic as ever. ‘Sure. Are you about to do me the felicity of flinging yourself into my arms? I knew old rhino would never succeed in taking you for seven rounds of fire religiously.’

‘We were going to have a court marriage,’ she said.

His eyebrows went up as he sat up, the foot whose ankle had been resting on his knee coming on the carpet with a muted thump. ‘Were?’

She sighed and rubbed the back of her neck. ‘Yes. I’ve had to give a rethink over everything.’

‘You finally saw enlightenment because of my advice? No, I don’t think so.’ His eyes narrowed. ‘The pregnant lady got her way with you, did she?’

‘What do you know about her?’ She glanced suspiciously at him.

‘Nothing.’ He shrugged. ‘I saw her take the elevator as she left your office. She wasn’t here to get a job, so… Putting two and two together. Just elementary reasoning.’

He paused, then asked, ‘What about your company – the one you were so set on?’

‘It’s not that – as – important as this is. I’ll have to drop the idea.’ She avoided his gaze. ‘Good thing I hadn’t given my notice.’ She attempted to say it lightly, hoping he wouldn’t pick up the strain in her voice.

‘For Gayatri Productions, it’s a day to celebrate. Well, I can only offer my services. In what way might I aid the damsel?’

‘By reining in your overactive imagination?’ Lyna said somewhat tartly. ‘Sorry, but it’s hard to picture you as a knight in shining armor.’

‘Yeah, I know, too blatant,’ he agreed gamely. ‘I think matt is more my thing. Probably black chrome would be a good look.’

She gazed at him, chin propped in her hand, an expression of rapt admiration in her eyes. ‘You’re really unbelievable.’

‘Not at all, my lady, I aim to please.’

…….

A superb #review for #AAR #AgainstAllRules

“Like the molten chocolate in a choco-lava cake”

says Lata Sony at Amazon.

This review was posted quite some time back but foegot to share it, so sharing now.

The rest of the review:

The hot and mushy scenes keep flowing like molten chocolate in a choco-lava cake. What I liked best though was the psychology of the characters that was believable and yet not heavy enough to come into the way of passion. Some romance readers are known to skip the serious parts to get to the hot stuff, but in this book the complexity of the personalities kept the feel of romance more lingering. Near the end my interest waned as the story got inevitably predictable, but it engaged me immensely the rest of the time. I ought to give a lot of credit for this to Summerita for her descriptive body actions and feelings. Sample this – His heart felt like a lead balloon squeezing breath from his chest. Entertaining novel, even thought-provoking to those interested in complex personalities. I thought I had long out-grown romance novels, but looks like I was just missing good quality romance like that in “Against All Rules” 🙂

Thanks to readers like her, Against All Rules touched top 100 paid in contemporary romance at Amazon.in several times last year. It’s been consistently in top 100 paid in Indian books in world literature category at Amazon.com

#Excerpt from #SecondChanceAtForever #romance #Amazonbestseller

Here’s an excerpt from soon to be released contemporary romance. Second Chance At Forever. This book is already in the top 100 paid books at Amazon in its category by virtue of preorders. Thank you, readers. I hope it will make the expectations.

Second Chance At Forever is the story of Revath and Stuti and how they fight the odds when they have different goals in life to find happiness.

Blurb:

What happens when the terrible twos come in threes?
Stuti loves being a mother to her triplets, but it can be a harrowing routine. She’s even more submerged in the craziness when she takes them and her mom-in-law for a trip to Rajasthan, the land of the erstwhile Thar desert royals and their palaces. After the passing away of her husband, she feels she owes it to her mil to take her to her favourite holiday. In the Amber Palace, her reckless toddler rushes onto a modelling shoot. As she picks up her daughter who has tripped over a gorgeous zardozi sari, her gaze clashes with that of the man she’d hoped never to set eyes on again in her life.

A passion that threatens to set fire to more than just her senses
Revath was everything she wanted in a man, but six years ago he chose to walk away from her. Now he wants to be back in her life. When she knows he doesn’t want the same things in life that she does, would she be wise to let anything rekindle between them? Is it already too late for rethinks?

Desire that has to be denied
Revath knew the moment he met Stuti again that he couldn’t just let her go. But Stuti is absolutely the wrong woman for him. It was proved six years ago when they chose diametrically opposite ways for themselves. He doesn’t believe in forever, so what’s he doing asking her for a second chance?

Can three little miracles be a barrier to two people finding love?

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

 

‘You were never like this,’ Stuti said, ‘so taunting, so hurting…!’

‘I know.’ He took a deep breath. ‘But then, you weren’t like this either.’

He looked out across the garden below, breathing, trying to get a grip on the emotions churning up his insides. He was never one to let the situation get out of hand. But with her, it was so easy to get all uptight. The past lay between them like a burning coal giving off sparks when poked even slightly.

She was breathing a little hard too, her breasts moving with the rhythm, her hair whipped by breeze.

He reached out and caught a strand of her hair, the gesture a painfully familiar one. Her hair had been longer then and he used to curl it around his finger to draw her close…

‘You know, I kept thinking what went wrong.’ His voice dropped. ‘You were gone and all I could see was that I failed when I shouldn’t have. I offered you the world and you walked away.’

‘That is past now. We’ve come a long way since that evening.’

‘And whose fault is that?’

She didn’t answer immediately, folding her arms across her chest as though bracing herself. That evening hurt too much to be remembered easily. Did she feel that way too? He watched her closely.

‘It was meant to be this way. Revath. Let’s accept that.’

‘You settled for second best.’ He wasn’t letting up.

‘Yes, I did.’ It broke from her. ‘I’m not ashamed of it.’ She glanced away. Then with a burst of spirit, she challenged, ‘You settled for second best too! But you’re not honest enough to admit it.’

‘I didn’t leave you for someone else, Stuti, you didn’t have to live with that.’ He was letting her see his feelings. A mistake. But the pain was undeniable. He couldn’t hide it. He saw her swallow as though trying to master control.

‘You wanted your work more than you wanted us to be together,’ she said, emotion welling up visibly. She caught hold of the black railing as though to steady herself. ‘So how was it different for you? Your lifestyle, being single and free was more important to you. You made your choice too, Revath, so don’t just keep on saying I walked out on you!’

Silence fell and grew. Then she said, ‘It isn’t as though you’ve missed me. You’ve got success. Made it. You have everything a man wants. Money, women fawning over you, the work you love…’

‘Everything, except you.’ He put his hand on hers, gripping it on the rail. He felt her jerk in shock. Contact rapidly evoked what time hadn’t sufficiently buried.

‘I have missed you. A lot more than you think.’ His whisper grated the air close to her.

‘Don’t let’s go there, Revath.’

His fist curled even more strongly on hers. He wished he could heed her words. They were sanity. A timely warning. But the storm inside was let loose. He took away his hand but only to grasp her upper arms to draw her close.

‘Revath!’

‘Do you think any woman could be what you were to me?’ Her eyes widened as the words registered and he felt her relax slightly, the tension ebbing from her.

‘I mean it, Stuti.’

She didn’t resist as he brought his head close to hers. His mouth touched her cheek and then irresistibly, inevitably, her mouth.

Time seem to dissolve. His head swam with the rush of feeling. He realized he had been only half alive as a surge of sensation invaded his body, rushing through his veins with the speed of storm winds.

He was intoxicated by the scent of flowers, the sweetness of nectar. Her mouth parted and he deepened the kiss, not able to tell her but needing to show the emotion that was alive and tingling in his every fiber. She clung to him, fingers digging in his shirt and the vortex intensified to a sucking maelstrom.

Here’s something about the book:

A novella set in the Early Middle Ages in India, Hidden Passion relates the story of Princess Rukmani who wants to find love and passion and refuses to be chained by conventions.

Rukmani, the youngest of the Kamboj royal family, has always had her way and she thinks she would too when the question of her marriage arises. In accordance to the tradition of Swayamwar, in which a princess can choose whom she wants to marry, she expresses her wishes. But her father and brothers oppose her in her choice and instead command her to accept the ruler they have chosen for her for political reasons. Do aristocratic affairs matter more than her heart? Who can she run to? She seeks refuge from the strongest ruler of the region, Deveshwaraya.

Devesh has struggled to free the farmers from despotic rulers. When Rukmani presents himself at his door, he finds himself torn between duty and desire. He is drawn to her yet he knows that being with her jeopardizes everything he has worked for. When even protecting her invites trouble, how can he let his heart become involved?

When the walls of monarchical politics rise high between them, will passion and love prevail?

Hidden Passion is Book #1 in The Princesses Saga. Book #2 is titled The Eligible Princess. Both are standalone stories and can be read in any order.

Reviews:

“There is much to love about the story of Kamboj princess Rukmani and royal ruler Devesh. The story moves along at a brisk pace, encompassing romance, tragedy, action and even a few healthy doses of philosophy and politics. The author managed to make the setting and characters come alive by painting a picture in rich detail without ever letting the plot slacken.”
