#Easter #Giveaway #HisChristmasSurprise

Hi friends,

It’s time for a giveaway and as Easter weekend is coming up, it will be an Easter giveaway. My question for the giveaway is, describe in the comments below, any memory that connects you with Easter. It can be anything minor or major that you remember. You will win an ebook copy of His Christmas Surprise as prize.

The length of your answer doesn’t matter. The answer needs to be posted in comments section of this blogpost.

Here’s something about the book.

Blurb:

Dan is struggling to bring up his sons after losing his wife. Tonya has a small son and is also on her own. When her bakery business goes bust, she accepts a job offer for housekeeping from Dan. They come close but Dan has too much going on in his life to think of commitment. Then his sons also don’t want any one to take their mother’s place.

Will love brew between Dan and Tonya under these circumstances? Will it be strong enough to overcome the obstacles?

Excerpt:

The frown on his face was deep enough to look like it had been carved there. His face was set in tense lines. He glanced away from the paper and looked at her almost unseeingly. Then his gaze focused. ‘I didn’t know you were still here.’

‘I’m just headed back home.’ She must look ridiculous standing there with no business. Uncertain what she ought to do, she turned away but turned back again. Then something got the better of her.

‘May I see it?’

‘This? Why?’ His expression was forbidding.

She glanced at him in concern. ‘Is it some school report about the kids?’

‘Why should it be?’

‘You look so worried…’

‘Do I?’

‘Dan,’ she said a little desperately, ‘Why are you being like this ?’

‘Like what?’

She snapped, ‘Talking to you is like pulling teeth!’

‘Don’t bother then.’

She was tempted to follow his advice. Silently, she watched him. He folded the letter and put it back inside the envelope. Then he folded the envelope and stuck in his shirt pocket. His face was dark, but the expression inscrutable. Still, there was something in the deliberate way he made the movements that disturbed her.

She tried again, some innate empathy and some genuine concern for him holding her back, when she should have gone on her way.

‘Dan…’

‘I have nothing for you, Tonya.’ His gaze, blue and blank, looked at her.

She didn’t want to hear the bleakness surrounding the words. Instead, anger rose at his determination to walk away from her so readily. They’d just shared a kiss that had been so full of passion, she’d been swept away with the force of it. He’d acted like he couldn’t resist her, for God’s sake.

‘How can you be like this after what you were like moments before? You didn’t ask me what I wanted, Dan. You can choose to kiss me one instant and then push me away the next?’

That seemed to get him. He sighed, running a hand on his face as though to ease the grim lines there. ‘I know what this looks like, Tonya…’

‘Do you really?’ She felt all trembly inside. Fear and something else evoking an urgency she couldn’t hold back. ‘I’m not saying I want to rush into a relationship with you, but you haven’t given me an option, have you? You’ve decided what you wanted and haven’t bothered to get to know about my feelings.’

‘No. I haven’t.’ His face wore the grim look again. ‘I don’t want to discuss this, Tonya.’

‘Oh? Let’s find something you do want to discuss.’ Her voice shook a little. ‘Not a lot of choice there, I’m afraid.’

‘Tonya…’ His blue eyes gazed at her and she saw regret there. It made her feel empty inside. Her fists curled.

‘Stop treating me like a stranger, Dan.’

…………………

Hope you enjoyed reading the excerpt. I will post the result of the contest on Monday after Easter.

Spotlight: Book #33 #TornadoGiveaway3 – A Forgotten Affair by Kanchana Banerjee

Name of the book: A Forgotten Affair

Author: Kanchana Banerjee

Read a review:

  1. Inderpreet Uppal
  2. Janaki
  3. Archana Sarat

The Story:

Sagarika Mehta walks out of her nine-year-old marriage, meets with a near-fatal accident and goes into a deep coma all on the same day. After six months, she wakes up with no memory of her past. When she is discharged from hospital a year later, Rishab, her husband, whisks her away to an unfamiliar address in Gurgaon to convalesce.
There, in that plush apartment, with people waiting on her hand and foot, Sagarika can’t shake off the feeling that something is wrong.
Why does the scent of a particular cologne unsettle her? Why does the innocuous word ‘cheeni’ bother her? And why is Rishab so evasive in response to her queries about her past?
‘A Forgotten Affair’ is a gripping story of a woman caught between two worlds.

Here’s the Blurb:

The Bollywood diva who ran away
Piya walked out of an explosive situation three years ago. She married Arfaaz for security but left him facing chaos she created. Now she’s back in Bollywood and searching for the crown she gave up when she ran away. In the competitive world of starry glamour, the only way she can begin her career anew is to trash the past and get a divorce.
The man who wants her atonement
Arfaaz is determined to get his revenge on Piya for making a farce of their marriage and leaving him to face the mudslinging. He forces her to keep up the appearances and stay with him so she can play the loving wife and repent on her sins. But Piya drives him crazy with her antics. On the top of that, the attraction between them sizzles and threatens to make him forget reason.
A passionate conflict
Piya knows she has lessons to learn but she cannot let this man enter her heart. There is too much to risk and she cannot afford to forget the real reason she has come back. Success is her mantra and her worship. She can be faithful to only her goal…

Thank you all who have downloaded and reviewed the book.
