by
Sundari Venkatraman



Blurb

The Maheshwaris are back, a little secretly this time!

What do you do if you find a man who looks like chocolate, speaks like warm syrup, looks at you like you were the most precious cake ever created, and he can bake too? You marry him, even if in secret.

Ruma Malhotra falls head over heels and a little more in love with Lakshman Maheshwari, but her parents insist that she marry a rich businessman of their choice. When Ruma's only option is to marry Lakshman in secret, she is left torn between her love for her parents and her passion for Lakshman. Is a secret marriage the solution or will it lead the way to a public disappointment?

Lakshman Maheshwari falls in love with Ruma Malhotra the first time he sets his eyes on her in Ranveer's office. Will he agree to marry Ruma in secret even if it means betraying his parents?

Psst... Those who have read THE MALHOTRA BRIDE might be happy to reconnect with Sunita & Akshay Malhotra in this one. 

*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.

Read an excerpt from #HSH

“What’s up?” he asked, trying to keep the situation light.
She winked at him. “Shouldn’t I be asking that question?” she asked, looking pointedly down at his lower body.
Reacting to her flirtation, his manhood immediately sprang to action, making Lakshman swear. “Cut that out, Ruma,” he growled, sidestepping her as she would’ve wrapped her arms around him. “I need a shower,” he insisted, not meeting her eyes. He went into the bathroom and locked himself in. The place smelled of Ruma. Cursing, Lakshman stood under the cold shower to tame his libido. She looked like she meant business. How could he convince her to wait till they got married? He dried himself with the towel that was on a rack, glaring at the mirror. He needed a shave. But no, they weren’t going to make love, so it didn’t really matter. Just then he realised that he would have to step out in the towel as his clothes were in the wardrobe. Swearing again, Lakshman walked into the bedroom.
“Laki,” called out Ruma, eyeing him avidly. Fascinated, she got up from the bed and walked up to him. He appeared like a Greek God with his chiselled body that was still damp from the shower. 
She stood close to him and raised her left hand to caress his rough cheek. Her right hand was hooked into his towel as if she was going to pull it off him any second. Lakshman clamped his hand on hers, his fingers holding the towel firmly. “No!”
“Huh?!” She looked deeply into his eyes, her brown gaze like melted cocoa, inviting him to make love to her. Her mouth was pouted deliciously, glistening wetly, begging for a kiss. Lakshman groaned deep in his throat, letting go of her hand to wrap his arms around her. He placed his lips on hers, sucking her upper lip. She tasted as sweet as honey, driving him crazy. His right hand moved down the curve of her hip to touch a thigh. He traced the curve, working his way under her nightshirt to encounter her bare bottom.
“Ruma.” He deliberately removed his hands off her and raised his head to look at her.
She stared back at him with slumberous eyes. “What?” A small frown puckered her forehead.
“We’ll make love after we get married,” he declared.
“What if I don’t agree?”
“I’ll have to beg, right?” he grinned weakly. “Please, my love. You know your parents won’t agree to a marriage between us. Doesn’t it make sense to wait until after the event?”
“What if I want you desperately?” She nuzzled his neck, her teeth taking a sharp nip.
Lakshman groaned again, his arms crushing her to his chest. “Do you love me or just lust after my body?”
“Can’t I do both?”

About the author


Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 15 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari 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, Sundari 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! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Spotlight: Finding Juliet by Toffee

Good day People !
A light, fun and interesting read by Toffe in Finding Juliet.


by
Toffee


Blurb

Arjun is an incredibly nice guy who believes in true love and is waiting for it with open arms. He falls in love, not once or twice, but thrice. And every single time, happiness – like the girls he fell for – comes very close to him before pushing him away. His only pillar of strength in all his moments of grief and dejection is his childhood friend Anjali. Dejected by the games played by girls and fate, he leaves Hyderabad for Bangalore and ends up meeting Krish, an irresistible flirt. 

Krish understands Arjun's predicament, pacifies him with his words and enlightens him about the most complicated species ever created by God – Women. And then, Arjun's life changes forever. Will Arjun find the one he has been waiting for, or will he end up becoming a flirt? Will he ever taste lasting happiness? Join Arjun as he tries to figure out women and discovers the meaning of love, lust and life… all in his journey of Finding Juliet.


Read an excerpt here from Finding Juliet...

‘I have fucked you enough. Now you can fuck off!’ I said furiously, as I pushed her away from the bed.
‘You are such an asshole!’ she said, looking angrily at me as she stood up. Her cheeks were red with anger.
I saw her as she stood naked, with her hands on her hips. She was expecting me to say something, but I didn’t. It simply doubled her anger.
‘All you guys are the same. You want women only for sex,’ she stated furiously, pointing a finger at me.
I could have refuted her point easily and proved that she was being a hypocrite, given the fact that she had a boyfriend and yet she had slept with me a few moments ago. But I didn’t bother to respond and I just looked away from her. Disgusted, she let out a deep sigh and began picking up her undergarments, which were lying on the floor and started wearing them hurriedly. She moved towards the door where her black denims and purple tee were. She wore them in an instant and fished for her comb in her handbag. She brushed her hair and then wore the earrings I had removed before kissing her ears. She took some more time to get ready, gazing at herself in the mirror and adjusting everything, and I wondered how girls gave so much importance to their looks even during moments of distress.
Eventually, before leaving, she threw me a disgusting look and said, ‘I will never see your face again.’
‘Thank you. Now get lost,’ I said as she slammed the door shut.
After she left, I pondered over what had just happened and what had been happening in my life. ‘You shouldn’t have been so harsh on her’ – a soft voice from inside my heart said. But I strangulated it in an instant. I had lost enough in my life by listening to my heart.
Just a few moments ago, I was rolling in bed with Aditi, and after we came together, she began talking to me endlessly, like most girls do after sex. I was more interested in looking at the fan on the ceiling and wondering why it was spinning anticlockwise and not clockwise.
While talking, she had grazed her finger over my shoulder and moved it slowly towards my arms and said, ‘Behind these strong muscles, there is a weak heart, yearning to be loved and dying to be cared for. You can hide your pain from the world, Arjun, but not from me.’
That was when I had pushed her from my bed and I didn’t really understand why I had reacted so strongly. Was it because I had been hiding my true face from the world successfully all the while? No one had ever tapped the underlying guy inside me, except Krish. But when Aditi said those words, I became very defensive. The last thing I wanted was someone knowing about the void inside me.
I got up, splashed water on my face and looked at myself in the mirror. My eyes were crimson red. And even though I was nowhere near smiling, I saw an evil grin on my face. I splashed water once again and looked at myself. The grin grew wider and scarier. ‘How had I been and what have I become?’ I asked myself. I saw the image in the mirror once again. I couldn’t look at it and smashed the mirror with my hand. Pieces of glass got stuck on my knuckles. A big piece made a deep gash, but it didn’t hurt as much as the scars on my heart did.
I then riffled through the shelves to find weed – my temporary solution to permanent problems. I rolled a joint hastily and lighted it. After a few puffs, I felt feather-light and forgot everything that had been going on in my mind. Surreal images flashed in front of my eyes, and when I closed them, I saw myself waiting at the gates of heaven, even though I was, in fact, right in front of my bathroom door.
I tried to get in as I had to pee, but I tripped and fell on my face, my forehead hitting the tap find. The thud sound was what I remembered last, and I woke up to see myself lying on a hospital bed the next morning, with Anjali standing beside me.

Book Review: Soulless by MV Kasi

Good day ppl!

Another blockbuster or Bestseller from MV Kasi is in the form of Soulless. I love the way she weaves multiple topics into one story.

Do read her That Same Old Love and our Book Review: That Same Old Love by MV Kasi
Guest post: You say you are a Bold Heroine romance addict.How do create your characters? to MV Kasi



As she said in her Guest Post: Is this a stand alone novel or sequel to That Same Old love? to MV Kasi This is a Book Series.
This series is totally different from a normal Romance novel. It will haunt you and keep you hooked.

Warning:This may cause emotional turmoil, anger issues, make you ignore your daily tasks,...
By the end of it I was boiling and was thinking of all kinds of horrific punishments for the villain of the book. I also wanted to shout at MV Kasi coz the story will be continued in the next book. :( Why didnt you say earlier that it was a Book Series :|

Story:
Sia Sampath is a 23yr old but has deep scares, addictions, fears which keep her up at night. She has several phobias, is mentally disturbed and has been over the edge many times since her teens. She has resigned to live her life with it. She is a survivor.
But she has recently learned about the monster who is responsible for the tattered life she has been living. The monster is still alive. She wants revenge, so she plots and plans along with battling her various issues. That is her mission now and she has to rope in a prey to help her achieve one part of her mission.
This prey Ajay turns out to be the spark in her life and even if she has no soul left, heart yearns for the some love which was never a part of her life. This person was supposed to be collateral damage but is growing more meaning in her life.

Will Sia be able to avenge her lost childhood and life? Can she be as emotionless as she has turned herself into?

What I liked:
God ! The emotional turmoil it caused in me. Kudos to MV Kasi for bringing those emotions out in her characters and the reader too.
 I was seething, remorseful, aloof on the 2-3 days I took to finish this book. I was trying to take breaks while reading it but I would catch myself feeling sorry, victorious, angry as Sia was progressing with her plan even when I was not reading it. The reason for taking so many days to write the Review is the same, I was postponing the same emotional upheaval I will go through again :) But its a good book and it demands a Review.

The flashbacks and present episodes which trigger the flashback are interlocked perfectly. The story goes at a steady, fast pace throughout the book. I couldn't think of any part which was not needed.

The characters are deep. Even Varun or Anjali and the best Dr.Patel are like the cement which makes the story solid strong.
The physical chemistry between Sia and Ajay is Hot and addictive. Also the slow falling in love is adorable. The withdrawal of Sia is saddening. Ajay with his small gestures helps her out, makes you root for him and thank god for getting both of them together.

The research into life's of person dealing with addictions, fears, nightmares, abuse, suicide ... and their treatment. Loved the way the treatment and Sia's recovery is carefully weaved into the story. It doesn't sound miraculous or magical. The reason for her addictions, the deep emotional linking to certain episodes in her life, the body-mind survival tactics to fend us or heal us. My heart bled for the survivors. Hats off to doctors and centers operated by Dr.Patel.

The little details of how a person with such a past would try to brace themselves and build their Armour from further hurt. Sia's ritual of checking all doors, windows, behind curtains, below bed for possible predators. The doors which have multiple layers of security and rooms to be sound proof to cancel her blood curdling screams at night. The way she gets panic attacks with strangers in a few meters radius around her. Her lack of friends or social life.

The fitness element got me into a mindset of daily fitness routine. Loved the way Sia and Ajay follow it religiously. I want to go back to running and kick-boxing now. Hope soon ;)

The thrilling moments or steps to get closer on their enemy are nail biting.

What I wanted more:
The point which made me a little angry with Sia was: She too like the mother who adopted her was getting a child for a specific agenda. The child was a means to a Goal. May it be handing over her Empire or gaining on her enemy. Sad, Sia's child too will have a set agenda for being born. Or is it part of the Series, Manya?

The fitness regime level and the sexual activity during pregnancy are a little too much to digest ;) Manya, you should set a Disclaimer or warning about it.

The point which got me angry with the Author. There was no mention the Book is part of a Series. I was on pins and needles waiting for the climax only to discover its a cliff-hanger. Now I cant wait for the next Book: Ruthless.

Hope this review or the Story itself will make you head to Amazon and buy your copy right now!

About the author


Veronica Thatcher is an exciting new contemporary romance author. Ever since she was very young, she’s dreamed of becoming a doctor when she grew up. While still forging ahead with that, majoring in pre-med in college, she unwittingly stumbled upon a new dream—becoming a published author. Some may call her an introvert or a wallflower, but she has always found she could express herself better in written, rather than spoken, words. However, never in her wildest dreams had she envisioned she would pursue writing as a prospective career, not just a hobby. Her love for writing goes hand-in-hand with her love for a good romance novel—whether it be a feel-good, sweet romance or a dark, suspenseful one. 

When she’s not studying, reading, or writing, she is usually found blasting her favourite songs, sometimes singing and dancing along to them. She dabbles in a number of activities, including painting, karate, singing and dancing. She is a huge chocoholic – probably the biggest – and she is an ice-cream junkie too. She considers herself technologically handicapped forever and has no shame in admitting that. She also deems chocolates her boyfriend, Patrick Dempsey the love of her life, and Friends her life!

Her first book, A Way Back Into Love, is slated for release in February 2017, and she hopes readers will enjoy it as much as she enjoyed writing it.
