Last Man She’d Love is No. 1 New Release at Amazon 

*jumps up and down* Do excuse my excitement because, who knew, that new book Last Man She’d Love would climb so soon into no. 1 New Release spot. 

It was at no. 30 in its category and featured in Hot New Releases at Amazon. Then soon after that it hit no. 1 in New releases in Indian literature. 

Blurb:

When best laid plans fall apart…

Lyna is all set to marry a movie mogul, when she finds his pregnant ex at her office, begging her to break the engagement and keep her name out of it. Forced to take her flirtatious boss Guy’s help, she sets about to break the engagement. But now she’s pulled into deeper involvement with Guy. 

One trouble leads to another!

She agrees to visit his palatial country house, posing as his fiancée and is drawn into the family and their antics. Sorting out who’s who takes time. A stringent grandfather, an ambitious mother, a frustrated half brother are only the beginning!

Attraction makes things complicated…

Propinquity with someone as charming and attractive as Guy doesn’t help. But Guy himself is as much of a puzzle as ever. Is he the playboy she thinks him or is there someone else beneath the sardonic pose? Will she ever find out?

Will she break her heart in the process?

What more excuse would anyone need to preorder it? It’s hoisting no. 1 new banner and, at the low promo price of 99 cents, is almost a steal.

#Review The Courage to Love Her Army Doc by Karin Baine

The Courage to Love Her Army Doc by Karin Baine is a medical romance from Harlequin.

The heroine, Dr Emily Clifford is a dedicated medical professional who has been oversensitive about her birthmark all her life because of a bad parent. Her failed marriage makes her even more emotionally scarred. She seeks refuge at a beautiful Fijian island where she takes her medical skills but is surprised to find another doctor already there. Dr. Joe Braden has his own personal demons to fight.

One of the hallmarks of the book is that it is thoroughly researched. The medical and cultural backgrounds are firmly blended together to form a realistic picture. I liked the portion about dengue and what the author put in as dengue remedies because the disease and the remedies are quite prevalent in India and shows how much thought author has put in the research.

Emily is vulnerable yet strong. Damaged hero Jason is worth drooling over. Both are confused by their mutual attraction and even more complicating is when her brother comes to learn of it. The author has handled it sensitively. When they get stranded on the island, Jason’s determination yet uncertainty about saving them from storm makes him very human. Emily learns new strengths as the book progresses and how she overcomes her weak self image forms the crux of discovering romance.

All in all, a well written and tender romance.

#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.

Living the life of a modern day Prince is no easy task for the young and dashing Aryan Ranaut. Having lost his father to a rapacious woman, Aryan has severe trust issues. But upon meeting Shefali, he feels he could let down his guard. Until…
 
All They need is to find The Angel…
 
Just as Aryan realizes his love for Shefali, one of the most precious artifacts, The Angel, goes missing from the Ranaut collection. All fingers point towards Shefali—more so because she leaves the palace without telling anyone on the very night of the theft.

#Romance set in #Goa #HisChristmasSurprise 

We were just talking the other day that spring seems to have vanished. In the West, the winter is prolonged and here in India, the summer is directly upon us.

Seasons are off and the book release of my Christmas romance His Christmas Surprise is also not timed with the holiday season. It should have been released at Christmas, but that didn’t happen.

So, if you’d like to celebrate holidays off season, you can, with His Christmas Surprise, romance set in Goa at Christmas.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XS6XZ7J 

It’s a family oriented romance themed around problems of children in second chance romances.

Not a frivilous romance like the instant attraction and heavily sexual stuff available these days, although it is a sensual romance. So be warned if you’re looking for that! Not that there’s anything wrong in that, have written stuff like that myself, but this one is different.

An excerpt to give you an idea….

Ben tore out of the room like a bullet. He stopped short of running into her and in the second she saw the tears spilling on his cheeks. He gave her a furious look and darted towards the stairway.

She gave a short knock and entered. Dan’s face was set in tense lines still, though the anger was being replaced by something like tiredness.

‘Oh, Tonya. Yes, do come in. I’m really sorry for the mess.’ He spread his hands. ‘I should be able to control them better than this.’

‘It’s really not that much of an issue,’ she disclaimed quickly. ‘I was a kid myself. Kids can turn horrid at times of stress.’

‘That’s an excuse I won’t allow him.’ A hard edge crept into his voice.

‘Can I say something? Don’t be harsh with him.’

He shook his head. ‘You’re saying that? This wasn’t a harmless prank! It’s not the first time either. His teacher has been complaining about him. I thought it was because I wasn’t participating in school activities like his mother used to, but to go on in this way…?’

Silence stretched for a moment and he made a sound of frustration. ‘I came home early because Glen asked me to come and see the holiday pics with them. I don’t believe it has come to this. Anna would never have to–’ He cut himself off.

She felt intrusive for a moment but ignored the feeling in favor of the stronger feeling that he needed to share his troubles. ‘Don’t blame yourself,’ she said softly. ‘Don’t feel it.’

 ‘Don’t tell me what to feel,’ he said gruffly. ‘And don’t defend him.’

She said, going over the words slowly. ‘When Trent was alive, he used to take Toby out every Sunday, sometimes to see vintage war crafts or science museum or butterfly conservatory… Now by myself, no matter how hard I try, I simple can’t make that type of time. It’s not just the financial aspect, though that is there, but there’s just too much to do. I – I’m not like Trent by nature either,’ she confessed, surprising herself because she had never admitted this aloud to anyone. ‘I can’t take off at a moment’s thought like he used to. Toby misses all that, I know, but some things are so hard to take care of.’ Calmly, she met his gaze. ‘You see, I do know. And that’s why I can tell you. Don’t feel bad…or at least not too bad.’

‘Your son hasn’t wrecked someone’s morning work,’ he shot back. The next moment, he exhaled and said on a low note, ‘I don’t know. Nothing seems to work. It’s like they’re not the same kids they used to be. Even Glen hardly talks to me anymore. That’s why today –’ He broke off and gestured towards the stairs. ‘He’s followed his brother upstairs. So much for that break.’

 ‘It’s hard to match perfection.’

‘What did you say?’ Disbelief sounded in his voice. ‘That’s just what I have to face. Anna was so good with them. She never scolded them but they would always do what as she said. And now… Maybe I just don’t know how to handle them.’

Impulsively, she touched his arm. ‘I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to imply anything like that. Just that…Trent was so good with Toby. Last week I forgot to buy him his racket. I miss things at times and feel so guilty.’

‘You are a single parent,’ he said. ‘Then there’s your business. You’re doing such a lot on your own. Don’t beat up yourself.’

‘The same applies to you.’ She smiled.

He smiled back, relaxing slightly. Then a thundercloud came over his brow. ‘No, I can’t let this go just like that. I have to do something to put it right.’

‘Can I make a suggestion? Instead of cutting his practice – sorry, I overheard that – why don’t you talk to his coach and make him spend extra hours there? It would work off his excess energy. If you keep him from his favorite sport, he would only grow more resentful.’

He looked into her anxious gaze for a long moment. She began to feel a little warm by the intensity.

‘How do you work in the kitchen?’ he queried. ‘Doesn’t the heat melt your wax heart?’
