#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.

Book Release day: A Twist of Fate #historical #fiction

Hi folks,

I’m happy to share that today is the book release day of historical fiction A Twist of Fate. Set in India in early medieval period A Twist of Fate explores the attitude of ancient society towards women. Charulata is set to have an arranged marriage as per norms of those times. But a twist of Fate changes the circumstances and her life is changed completely and unexpectedly.

A Twist of Fate follows the entwining fortunes of Charu and Deva in the post Vedic ancient India. Greed, treachery, and deception feature highly in this story of royal suspense. Can love have a hope of surviving amid such intrigues?

To be a courtesan in ancient India was a fate far worse than slavery. This is the second book written on the theme by the author. Also read Against The Tide, the story of the royal concubine, the first book with the same theme.
Today it has debuted with a good opening and is featured as no. 1 in New Releases in its category at Amazon. com.

Also read an excerpt from this book.
Excerpt:
Her curved brows arched a little more – the mobile movement betokening the agility of a dancer’s expression. ‘Mayhap the tall form of my cousin pleases you better than a moderately built one like mine.’ At this, her eyes brimmed with humor before her lashes became cast down to hide it.
He resisted the urge to go over to her and tip up that firm looking chin. ‘I can’t tell what pleases me until I’ve held the form in my arms.’
He’d succeeded in having her gaze back to him, tangling with his and now her mouth curved in enjoyment of the sparing.
She said in a low well-modulated voice. ‘You certainly have your ideas clear in your head, swami.’
He made a gesture of half of impatience and half dismissal. ‘Don’t call me your master. It’s a slave more likely.’ His mouth twisted at the admission. The clink of ornaments sounded and Charulata came closer to him. Her hands were held in front of her, fingers tightly interlocked. He reached out and pried them loose, clasping each. They trembled in each of his like trapped birds. Their gazes locked. His pulse increased its pace. He thought his insides trembled also and couldn’t reason why.
‘Do you really wish me to be so brazen as to step in your embrace?’
He gazed down into her eyes, conscious again of that mixture of humor and the shyness of a bride. He surely didn’t wish her to come any closer. His blood pressure might not sustain it.
In direct contradiction, he said, ‘Do you want to?’
Her eyes widened a little, but he had to acknowledge she didn’t lack for comprehension. Two slim arms like the snakes of temptation wreathed round his neck and her warm curves pressed against his – what now seemed to have been destitute – body.
He felt definitely a tremor run through him. Instinctively, his hands reached out resting at the niche of her curving waist… She fit against him perfectly. His arms must have been made to hold her, her body to mold against his. His mind jumped to hope, to curiosity, the insistence how perfect would be the ultimate union with her –
Conscious of two impulses drawing him equally strongly in opposite directions, he tried to clear his mind. The urge to flee, to put distance between them, to remember why he was here – a lowly deception that clawed at him – was tossed against the second, as powerful wish – to take her to the folds of the silken sheets of the rose-petal strewn marriage bed.

#Excerpt #romance #fiction Last Man She’d Love 

Sharing an excerpt from new release Last Man She’d Love. Have you read it yet? Happy to share that this humorous, contemporary romance with a touch of family drama is in top 200 paid ebooks at Kindle store Amazon India. Read the blurb here:

Hope you wil enjoy this extract! 

…………..

She went to her chair. ​’What do you want?’

‘Is that an invitation?’

She did an eyeroll. ‘How can you spout so much nonsense? Do you constantly practice or is it an inborn trait?’ she asked sweetly.

‘That’s better,’ he approved. ‘I didn’t like the long face.’

She looked up startled by both the lack of mockery in his tone and the idea that he had sensed her feelings.

‘My private affairs are mine and really none of your business.’

Then she stopped, because something like a loud warning bell rang out in her mind.

‘That’s what I meant,’ Guy was saying, ‘Back to freezing.’

Wasn’t it true, she reflected, what they said about having to eat your words. This morning she had had to eat her jibe about money when she mocked Meghna.

And now… She stared meditatively at Guy. It might be that she would have to take back what she said about keeping him out of her personal affairs.

He raised those mobile dark brows. ‘You’re looking at me quite dangerously. Should I be alarmed? I’ve only seen you look like that when you took away the part of Sheila’s boyfriend from David and handed him the script to play her jerk of a boss instead.’

‘He had the right inflection of voice to utter threats, and he looked good in a suit,’ she said absently.

A ﹰLovely #Review for Last Man She’d Love #romance #novel

Sharing today a lovely review for Last Man She’d Love

The review says:

A Great Story! This is a great love story. It is light and funny, but very honest. The characters are very relatable and likeable. Guy is a business man who is not looking for a permanent relationship, but when he starts working with Lyna his attraction begins and does not let up. He begins to flirt with her and because she is reserved and engaged, she does not give in to his flirting. She feels a pull to him, but she is engaged to another man and ignores the pull. Lyna’s engagement is a business deal. She isn’t in love with Brijesh, nor is she really attracted to him. She agreed to marry him because he promised to give her a production company of her own.

Guy is the oldest child and feels the family obligation very strongly. When he and Lyna are video taped kissing, and the video goes viral, things get complicated between the two. Lyna has issues already with her fiancé and is trying to get out of the engagement. Both families have some issues and Guy and Lyna are trying to please their families. I love Dadu and his eccentricity and keeping with tradition. He is a force to be rekoned with when it comes to the family and they all do their best to keep him happy, the only one who will stand up to him is Guy.

If you like a book that is light and funny, but will keep you turning the pages, especially towards the end, this is a great book to read. I love the chemistry between Guy and Lyna, and the way that they each deal with their family issues is different, but gentle.Read the review at the blog:

#Excerpt #LastManShedLove #romance 

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 short blurb:

Will she get to know the real man beneath the veneer or will she just break her heart over him?

A pregnant ex and a broken engagement lands Lyna in close proximity to her boss. She’s spending a week at his palatial country house, faking an engagement to him, getting upclose and personal – to him And his family.

Anything can happen…
