Hi folks,

Sharing an excerpt today from romance Against The Tide. It’s a historical fiction novella set in ancient India.

In this extract, Lohana the concubine is angry at the king for defying the traditions.

Enjoy the excerpt!

……..
Words trembled on her lips and she wished she were a man with the power to face him and vent her anger. She held herself still, but it seemed he could read her, because as they strode through the corridors, he said with as much bite in his voice, ‘If you’re going to tell me how wrong I was to act like I did, save your breath. I value your opinion but don’t tell me I brought this on. I never denied there would be a battle facing us, but I have my way of beating the odds. I stay lowkey when I need to…a warrior knows when to attack and when to wait…there’s skill in that.’

Silence reigned and she kept breathing evenly, trying to still the tumult raging in her. He wouldn’t listen but the signs were everywhere. Oh, she wished she had the courage to refuse him and leave him, but now when the opposition had reared its head, some unknown streak of loyalty she possessed wanted her to stay by his side. She was stupid, a fool – she had to break away from him. This was destructive –

He was in her room…as though he’d instinctively sought refuge where he knew no one would disturb them.

He paced, then turned to her and clasped her upper arms.

‘No more,’ he said, ‘My patience runs out.’

Blurb:
Can a concubine fall in love?

In the politics of aristocracy, germs of intrigue flourish hidden behind the ornate doors. As love grows stronger, the plotting against her deepens…

Blurb:

Rukmani, the youngest of her family, has always had her way and she thinks she would too when the question of her marriage arises. But when she expresses her wishes, her world comes crumbling down because aristocratic affairs seem to matter so much more than her heart. Who can she run to but the strongest ruler of the region, Deveshwaraya?

Devesh finds himself torn between duty and desire. He is drawn to her yet 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 her passion prevail?

Hidden Passion – the story of a princess daring to reach out for her heart’s desire.
