About The Author 


Summerita Rhayne writes sensual romance which is sheer escapism with lots of emotional conflict. She first got published in 2013 and has won contests with prestigious publishers such as Harlequin and Harper Collins India. Writing, she finds, is the only way to deal with the numerous story ideas bubbling in her brain which pop up more rapidly than her keyboard can do justice to. Her pet belief is that even when writing time is in short supply, if the inspiration is strong enough, the story characters get a life of their own and will find a way to make the writer pen them down. When cerebrally confronted with the sizzling interaction of two Alpha characters, the only way to get peace is write their book! 



At heart, she’s a family person and even though she loves her medical teaching profession, she happily becomes a homemaker when not at work. She loves winding down with music, movies, cricket (strictly watching only) and social networking.

#Sharing an #Excerpt from #MoreThanJustDesire #contemporary #romance

Today I’m sharing an excerpt from More Than Just Desire, a contemporary romance set against the high drama of film world in India.

Enjoy!

……………..

Piya glanced across at the black and the pure cream creations laid out on the bed.
The lady look or the bad girl? she pondered. As an eminent make-up artist had suggested, it was best to be in character for the Derby.
Derby. The races. The event to be at. She liked the races. The ripple of excitement. The anticipation of witnessing the win. The thrill of the attention.
A few minutes later, she studied her reflection, satisfied with the result.
Smooth porcelain skin. Nude glossed lips. Fleshy tones and strong eyes had been suggested for the lady look. For the bad girl? All black outfit. Wide brimmed hat and the darkest sunshades she had. Bright red lips.
She tipped her hat to add a rakish angle. Bad girl worked every time.

#Fivestars for #MoreThanJustDesire #review #romance

Fantasy and romance author Maya Tyler reviews More Than Just Desire and has this to say:

“Chemistry is the not the word… The heat between Piya and Arfaaz in More Than Just Desire is sizzling! Summerita Rhayne has done it again by creating strong, believable characters. Piya is headstrong and selfish, but those character flaws are her shield against an intense fear of being alone. Arfaaz thinks he’s out for revenge, but finds the intense emotion he feels for Piya is love not hate. These characters may seem like opposites, but they have much in common. They have both overcome difficult, humble beginnings. Neither trust the other. Or themselves. Together they sizzle in this easy to read romance set in exotic India. I was instantly captivated by this story and I would highly recommend it.”
Many thanks, Maya.

“Romantic to the core” #review #MoreThanJustDesire

Author Ruchi Singh’s review for contemporary romance More Than Just Desire:
“More Than Just Desire does full justice to Summerita Rhayne’s brand of sensuous romance. The author effortlessly pulls you into the glamorous world of Arfaaz and Piya.

Set in the back drop of India’s film industry, Bollywood; MTJD takes us through an emotional journey of Piya. A top actor—a Diva to millions—had abandoned everything to seek peace in life and discover herself. But as they you can never ignore your inner calling; she comes back to Mumbai. Arfaaz, the handsome director, her estranged husband, comes to know about her return and plots to meet her and make her pay for leaving him in a soup. And the drama begins.

The author has painted a sophisticated picture of mechanics of Bollywood and that’s the USP of the book. I loved the setting and the way Arfaaz is portrayed in the story. Summerita narration is smooth and entertaining giving us a peep into Piya’s tumultuous childhood and to why Piya is the way she is.

Highly entertaining, a recommended read for all romance lovers.”
Thanks to Ruchi Singh for her valuable opinion.

The Bollywood diva who regrets nothing…
Piya walked out of an explosive situation three years ago. Now she’s back in Bollywood and wants to regain the crown that she left behind when she ran away from Arfaaz. It seems everyone who used to idolize her has forgotten her. In the competitive world of starry glamour, the only way she can restart her career is trash the past and make some waves.
The man who wants her atonement..
Arfaaz is determined to get his revenge on Piya for making a farce of their marriage and then 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 he finds Piya isn’t so easy to handle. She drives him crazy with her antics. On the top of that the attraction between them sizzles and threatens to make him forget reason.
Conflict clashes with desire..
No matter how intense the passion between them gets, their ways are bound to diverge. Piya knows she cannot let this man find a way into her heart. There is too much to risk and she cannot afford to forget the real reason she has come back. Success is the only mantra she knows and really, all Arfaaz wants is revenge…

EXCERPT 
‘You’ll divorce me?’ The sense of anticlimax she felt annoyed her. Why wouldn’t he, for God’s sake? She’d been far from an ideal partner. No man wanted a three year estranged wife surely? Or why would he allow her to remain away for so long?For no logical reason, the knowledge had a sharp edge, stabbing her insides deeply.

Arfaaz’s gaze was fixed on the flush deepening on her cheeks. The colour of anger…or joy at getting her freedom?

It had been a mistake to pick her up in his arms, to give in to the urge to subdue that stubborn defiance. Three years since he’d touched her, yet her bones felt as delicate under his hands as the night he’d gripped her shoulders in anger. Evoking the same remorse one might feel for handling a bird badly.

She had worn a metal colored dress that night. He could still feel the slithery fabric beneath his fingers. Another of her risqué dresses, with deceptively demure full sleeves while the shocker was the back. Which was missing. He had never objected to what she wore, though primitive instincts protested. She had a media image to maintain. He hadn’t wanted to act the possessive husband.

A mistake, he thought again. Even the brief brush of her body against his had lit a spark that reminded him of how possessive he’d wanted to be.

She had taken enough advantage of him. The grim thought rose from a host of emotions. He’d suffered, he’d been fooled, he’d been dumped. Was he going to take it all and let her go as easy as pie?

‘If you want a divorce, you’ll have to do a small favour for me first,’ he told her.

‘Favour?’

‘Something which is important to me. Then you’ll be free to go.’

‘I will?’

He shrugged, letting her make what she could out of it.

‘Anyway, we can’t stand here and talk it out. Come inside. We’ll discuss it over dinner.’

‘Yes, divorce must be one of the prime discussable topics for dinnertime conversation,’ she said waspishly.

‘For everything spectacular Piya the topnotch actress has done, this must be the downslide indeed. To tamely sit across her husband and rationally chat over the break-up of her marriage,’ he jibed harshly.

‘However, I think it’s time for you to take a step down from the pedestal.’
