Genre: Romance 

Blurb: 

The last thing Sujal Verma had expected while working out that evening was a desperate call for help. 

For Sunanda, life was like a romantic movie, all dreamy and beautiful, until trouble comes from close quarters. 

Was history repeating itself? Will Sujal be able to save Sunanda from the trauma and pain? Will the reality crush her wings or will she hold on to her buoyant nature and not let the smile on her lips fade away?

All actions have consequences. The consequence of Sunaina's actions in A Promise (Book 2 in the series) plays out in her step-sister Sunanda's life in this novella.


Cherished is Book 3 of the Verma Clan’s Sanctum Series and the conclusion of A Promise. It is the story of a girl who wakes up from a nightmare to realize that the world could be as colorful as the movies she loved to watch. 

Cherished can be read as a standalone book as well. 

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR

Gratitude

There are times when I think what’s the need of writing an acknowledgement note. People, who know me, know that I am forever grateful for their help, motivation and encouragement. They don’t need an external endorsement or proof of my sentiments.

But—there is always a ‘but’ to any argument :) —I have realized (I’m glad not too late) that I want to capture the nuanced feelings and emotions that are going through me as the book continues climb the Amazon bestseller chart and maintains its position in its genre.
So here I am writing the ‘acknowledgement’ for this close-to-my-heart novel; ‘The Bodyguard’ after one month as I hit the ‘publish’ button on Amazon KDP, and I hope my well-wishers will forgive me for this delay.

The story wouldn’t have been possible without the priceless feedback from my beta-readers Neelesh Inamdaar, Preethi Venugopala and Ruchira Khanna.

I would like to thank Neelesh for his insightful evaluation of the manuscript. This story would not have been what it is without his hard hitting email which made me realize that exceeding readers expectations is of paramount importance than publishing a half-baked product for a contest. Neelesh, God must be watching over me the day I thought of you as my beta reader for both Jugnu and The Bodyguard and you agreed. I really thank you for taking out time from your busy schedule and showing me the mirror.

Experts say whatever is visible sells, and that has been proven true with my new release. Thank you Manoj Vijayan for such a fabulous cover. You have captured the essence of the story so beautifully in just one frame.

Shantala, my last-minute goto morale-booster. If you have given a green signal to my story then I’m sure it’ll be a sure success. Thank you Nikita, for coming to my rescue at the last moment.

Last but not the least, I would like to thank my Rock of Gibraltar, my friends; Adite, Upreet, Sue, Preethi, Sai, Devika, Esha, Paromita, Rubina, and Sundari, who are always there to advise, encourage and motivate me to move forward in life.

And thank you my creator, for being with me in everything I do.

Cheers!

Blurb
Lord Brahma is highly disturbed when the four vedas are stolen from him the moment he goes to sleep at the end of the kalpa. It’s Asura Hayagriva who’s gotten away with the sacred scriptures.

Lord Vishnu offers to go to the creator’s rescue and takes the guise of Matsya, the fish.

King Satyavrath lands up with a tiny gold fish when he’s offering prayers to the Sun God one morning. Is the fish all that it appears to be?

How can Satyavrath help the fish?

Read more to find out the reason for Lord Vishnu taking the avatar on earth as Matsya. 

*This is a straightforward story of the first avatar of Mahavishnu, retold in simple English just the way it’s written over the ages. The target audience is the youngsters, children, who don’t know all that much about Indian mythology. It’s also for those parents who are keen to read aloud stories to their children and are looking for suitable books on mythology. 




It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR




The Storyteller:

This is the first foray into the mythology genre for the author and also the first book that she's written for children.

Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 26 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.

Dear readers,

I am extremely excited to share with you the cover of my next release 'The Bodyguard', a romantic suspense. The story is of Vikram and Esha, and set in the backdrop of India's financial hub Mumbai. While the characterization of my previous heroines had been of Indian girls next door, I have given a unique story and personality to Esha in this novel.

I hope it'll get the same kind of love and appreciation from you all that Take 2 and Jugnu have received and are still receiving.

Thanks!
Ruchi


Blurb:

Someone wants Vikramaditya Seth Jr. dead. 

He refuses the Z+ security option offered by the government. With too many variables, trust is hard to come by…

Esha Sinha prepares for her first assignment outside of active-army service, oblivious to the fact that she has to baby-sit a man who has no respect for rules or protocol—a man who is headstrong, a workaholic and a tenacious flirt. As the attraction between Vikram and Esha simmers and sizzles, another attempt is made on his life.  

The killer is resourceful and determined. 

The motive is unclear and perplexing.

Will they be able to nab the assassin before he gets to Vikram?

Book Blitz :: 'Sharvari' by Ashvini (Book 1 of Royal Romance Collection)

Sharvari is the first standalone novella in the Royal Romance Collection. The story is set in ancient India and mirrors the dynamics of that era.

Blurb:
Betrayed in love and war, Sharvari makes one final attempt to save her people by offering herself to the victorious rival King of Sindh, Brihadrath. The handsome king gives her a hope of a new start. But life at her new home is ridden with challenges. While she is coping up with a slew of palace intrigues and assassination attempts, the man from her past haunts her. Can Sharvari overcome the hurdles and find love again?

If you love intriguing stories of steamy romance with a guaranteed HEA, do download and read this one!

Available on Amazon

Excerpt:
“Move!” The goad hit her shoulder. She heard another soldier forbid the first one from hitting her again. It did not matter. She had grown numb to the pain. The second soldier caught hold of her bound hands and yanked her back to her feet. Many pairs of eyes stared upon her dusky hued limbs, a feast to eyes, for the wolf skin tunic that had made for the most of her clothing had been cast off long before. Save for the ragged jute that covered her breasts and her loins, her youth was on a display.

Modesty was the last of things on her mind as her legs gathered whatever strength they could to walk in to the court. Her lips quivered at an odd lewd word she heard while walking ahead, the ropes still pulling at her hands. But her eyes stayed fixed on the ground, on the marble flooring of the court hall, on the art that adorned the floor, on the flowery carpet that covered the stairs to the throne seat and on to the feet that wore the intricately carved sandals.

The Victorious King! Her gaze froze there. A cheer erupted in his name. “Long live King Brihadrath!”

Sharvari felt her limbs go numb. With an effort, she lifted her gaze to sight the blue silken Dhoti held in place by an ornate golden waist band. She then saw the garland of flowers around his neck, a whiff of their fragrance swept till where she stood. Strings of precious gems shone against the sunlight. King Brihadrath knew to groom himself! Or at least he knew what it took to impress a woman at the first sight.

Is what I heard about him correct? She prayed it was. As disgusting as the idea was, that was the only way she could save them all.

Her eyes met his. Sharvari saw them widen for a second before his lips parted as he signalled to the general to come closer.

“Were women captured and dragged along?”

The forbidding frown that momentarily passed on his forehead locked her gaze upon his face.

Sharvari thought fast. She was ready for this. At least she thought she was.

Cover Reveal :: 'No Escape From Love' by Reet Singh




Blurb
Tejopur, Punjab

Will the demons from their past tear them apart?

After personal tragedy strikes, Mohini Kapoor runs away from the city to her grandparents home in a village in Punjab. Though she manages to pick up the pieces of her broken self, and even builds a life for herself, the horror of her experience is difficult to forget. She buries it deep down inside her subconscious mind until the arrival of a stranger threatens to resurrect the old demons.


Reputed photojournalist, Aalok Ahuja, has to hide out for a few days to escape circumstances beyond his control. When his friend recommends Tejopur, a remote village in Punjab, Aalok expects life to be simple there and, perhaps, even boring - instead, his world is thrown into chaos by a woman more desirable, and vastly more complicated, than any he has ever known.


When their destinies collide, attraction flares, but secrets threaten their new found feelings.



An excerpt :: A few hours after Mohini and Aalok meet for the first time

The dinner tasted like ashes. In any case, Mohini barely noticed what she ate, her whole being focused on keeping her gaze averted from the acres of bare skin on display. Acres. The man was large - and tanned and muscular - and almost indecent in short shorts and a sleeveless T-shirt, this time his own.

She hoped Tejopur's famed mosquitoes would make a meal of Aalok - but while she swiped one away every now and then, he seemed unharmed.

Thick-skinned!

Mohini sniffed and, displeased at the blatant bias, smashed an errant mosquito against her wrist with unnecessary violence, then returned to pushing the food about on her plate.




And now for the fabulous cover of No Escape from Love ....

Isn’t Mohini gorgeous – and doesn’t she seem pensive? 
Aalok is clearly getting to her. Does she get to him, too? 


The book releases on 3rd March 

It should serve as the perfect companion as you recover from the festival of colors.
Happy Holi to all my friends and fans.


Thank you for your love.
