Sneak Peek
Chanda Maheshwari’s family is shaken when her thirteen-year-old bridegroom Veerendra runs away immediately after the wedding. The eight-year-old child doesn’t even understand the impact on her life. Unable to face their neighbours and friends, the Maheshwaris move from their village to Jaipur and begin a new life in the city.
Fourteen years later, Chanda is studying in a Delhi College. She takes up a temporary job at RS Software Pvt. Ltd. and falls head-over-heels for the boss of the operation. But what about  Ranveer Singh? Is he interested in her?
Ranveer’s secretary Shikha is desperate to make him fall for her. All she wants is life-long security with a rich man. But it’s nerd Abhimanyu who keeps getting in the way. Abhi is Ranveer’s second-in-command and Shikha isn’t keen on him as she’s eyeing the main chance. 
When Ranveer appears to show interest in Chanda, she’s faced with a new problem. Astrologer Vidyasagar insists that she would get back with her husband Veerendra. Does anyone want to know if she wants to do that? 
Chanda feels torn between the man she has fallen for and the family values that have been instilled in her. Will she ever find happiness? 
About the Author
Even as a kid, Sundari Venkatraman absolutely loved the 'lived happily ever after' syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. Soon, into her teens, she switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine.
Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. Then came the writing - a true bolt out of the blue! She could never string two sentences together. While her spoken English had always been excellent - thanks to her Grandpa - she could not write to save her life. She was bad at writing essays in both school and college. Later, when it was time to teach her kids, she could manage everything from Science to Mathematics and History & Geography.
When it came to writing compositions, her kids found her of no help at all. All this changed suddenly one fine day in the year 2000. She had just quit her job at a school's office and did not know what to do with her life. She was saturated with simply reading books. That's when she got home one evening after her walk and took some sheets of paper and began writing. It was like watching a movie that was running in her head - all those years of visualising Indian heroes and heroines needed an outlet and had to be put into words. That's how her first novel, The Malhotra Bride, took shape.
While she felt discouraged when publishing did not happen, it was her husband who kept encouraging her not to give up. There was no looking back after that. While publishing took a long time happening, Sundari continued to write novels and then short stories. Her luck turned when Indireads approached her to write for them and Double Jeopardy was born.
Now it’s all about self-publishing her books on Amazon. Her first self-published book is The Malhotra Bride (2nd Edition) in February 2014. Then came Meghna in June 2014. And now it's time to unveil The Runaway Bridegroom, all set to release on September 13, 2014.

Trouble Has A New Name 
by Adite Banerjie





The Blurb


“Will you pretend to be my fiancĂ© for the next few days?” 

Recently-single model Rayna Dutt does not feel like flying to her friend’s big fat Indian wedding. But she does - and when a mix up with room allocations forces her to share a luxury villa on Emerald Isle with the gorgeous owner of the hotel - Neel Arora - and best man at the wedding, things begin to look up.

Until Rayna’s ex turns up with a new girl on his arm! 

Hitting the panic button, Rayna searches for a solution. Surely Neel wouldn’t mind being her fake fiancĂ©…? In an instant the attraction they share is fever pitch, but when scandal comes calling, Rayna soon finds herself in more trouble than she can handle!

Book Review: Meghna by Sundari Venkatraman

Hello Book Lovers,
If you love the romance genre, Mills & Boon, Bollywood, happy endings,... you need to follow our author friend Sundari Venkatraman.
She has to her credit 3 published books and lots of short stories.

Read the reviews we wrote for her books:
The Malhotra Bride
Double Jeopardy


I loved the Friendly Warning issued by Sundari for the book Meghna. It goes like this:
This book has been written only for the purpose of Entertainment, Entertainment, Entertainment! If you are looking to learn something or improve your lives after reading this work, then this book is not for you. I am not trying to get into competition with the Author Biggies of this world. I wrote this simply for the fun and joy of it. One thing I can promise the reader though: Well proof-read, perfect language that I feel is very important for every book that's written in any tongue.


The Story:
Rahul is the fast, nimble minded young member of the board for a bank. He is quick, intelligent, has a knack for making people agree to his ideas, generous, caring, gentleman-types, added to this, he is drool worthy, an eligible bachelor, millionaire,... But still single.
Reason: Meghna, the grey-lightning eyed sister of his best friend Sanjay whose mother embraced Rahul as her own son. Rahul was in India till he completed his education. He was attracted to 16 year old Meghna and could guess she had a crush for him too. When Meghna & Sanjay's mother expired and coincidentally Rahul had to leave India to join his family in London, he left Meghna guessing if it was Love both of them shared for each other. 6 years later the changed-Rahul is in Meghna's life again making her heart sing. But does she know this guy who blows hot then blows cold. Is the romantic guy one moment, the cheeky-teasing tormentor who runs away from the word-Commitment the next. Where does this love exploring, sensuous, maturing with age story lead to ?

What I liked:
The Warning like I said before. The matured Meghna & the Gentleman Rahul who knows better than to control himself even though he can have his way with his lady love. Reema bhabhi, Rehaan and Sasha, Rahul's father & his drama queen mom :D. All characters dance in my imagination like Meghna at her dance class. The lip-locks a plenty ;), charming ways of Rahul to woe & propose to his Wife, their teasing & provoking each other. The villains in the story (I am not telling you who they are :D )

What I want more:
Meghna needs a rap on her head for some of her actions, makes her look like the immature girl hidden in the guise of a grown up. Rahul, Man up, Man ! Lovely story. Wish I could read it in more comfortable surroundings to enjoy it more. Sundari you need to write more of such-read it & enjoy it stories :)

Disclaimer: I received the PDF version of this book from the author for my honest review.
