Hi folks, sharing a snippet from Against The Tide- The King and the Concubine, a historical romance set in ancient India which is a newly released book and already no. 1 new release at Amazon.

Enjoy the extract!

……..

Excerpt:

He often glanced at her in an intent way, but now his gaze was so intense, it took her breath away and sent an answering surge through her being, so powerful that she was scared of what it meant. Warnings of her mother resounded in her brain. A concubine could never aspire to respectability or to wifely status. She must captivate and hold attention, while keeping her inner self apart from the man and her heart intact. Lohana could not sustain his gaze and let her lashes fall, lest she betray what she wanted to hide. He came close and tugged at her improvised mask to reveal her mouth, then bent down and kissed her – a soft persuasive touch that swept her senses like the wind, taking way her restraint. A trembling awareness ripped through her. This tenderness was unlooked for. Passion, yes, coy glances, flirtation. His confession could have been a compliment. But somehow it wasn’t. It was homage, and so was the kiss…

……………

Blurb:
Can a concubine fall in love?
Lohana knows she cannot even dream of everlasting love. Trained to captivate men for their wealth and proficient in the required arts, a concubine like her is not meant to be a partner for life for anyone and most certainly not for the king. But King Jayatshatru has managed to steal her heart.
In the politics of aristocracy, germs of intrigue flourish hidden behind the ornate doors. As love grows stronger, the plotting against her deepens…

Hi folks,

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

Already it is at no. 1 in New Releases at Amazon and no. 1 in several categories at Amazon kindle store.

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.’
