#WIP #Blog Challenge — Sneak Peek into my Current Writing Project

Work in Progress Blog Challenge is to let the cat out of the bag on what you are currently working on.

I’m guilty of genre hopping with my next work. After Against All Rules, which is contemporary through and through, it is strange that my Muse has latched onto a historical, but so it is and sometimes all you can do is go with the flow. So this is how Hidden Passion came about.

My current and hopefully, soon to be released, project is a historical romance set in the Early Middle Ages in India. It is a sort of tribute to all the Maharaja and rajkumaris tales I used to gobble from Amar Chitra Kathain. If you’ve read those, you’ll know what I mean.

Who isn’t fascinated by the ancient period of palaces, chariots, kings, battles and the grandeur of royalty? In my story, Rukmani is a princess, the youngest of the Kamboj beauties and she has fallen for Deveshwaraya, King of Campavati, who’s totally wrong for her. Can royalty with command over everything, also face troubles? For that check out:

Hidden Passion

…when the walls of monarchical politics rise high between them, will her passion prevail?….

For this post, I was nominated by the Harlequin romance writer, Adite Banerjie, to participate. Here are the rules:

1) Provide the link back to the post by the person who nominated you.
2) Write a little about your work-in-progress.
3) Give the first sentences of the first three chapters of your current WIP.
4) Nominate four other writers for the challenge.

Here are the first sentences of the first three chapters of Hidden Passion :

First chapter : 

The moment he stepped into the sabha, the informal gathering he had assembled under a marquee in the verdant palace lawns for his guests, Rukmani felt her breath trap in her throat.

Second chapter:

Rukmani felt exhilarated, her spirits rising with each clop clop of the horses’ hooves.

Third Chapter: 

‘You wouldn’t want your kingdom to go to war just to have your choice of a husband, would you?’ He said softly.

Do let me know how you found the chapter starts. Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek. Stay tuned for more news on this by following this blog via email or you can follow me on Twitter @SummeritaRhayne
