Sharing an excerpt from new release Bollywood Fiance for a Day. In this, Zaheer puts an idea into Dr. Vishakha’s head.

Enjoy!

…….

‘Don’t just keep on feeling angry about it. Do something.’ The command startled her.
‘Like what?’
‘Something to show her.’ The comment caught her attention. ‘The best revenge of all is to live well,’ he quoted softly.
‘Meaning?’
His eyes held a sudden gleam. ‘Meaning that instead of sitting moping around like the ditched ex-fiancée, you could show off the new man in your life and let them know you’re more than all right.’
She laughed. ‘What man would I show them?’
He said, ‘Well, for instance, there’s me.’
………..
Blurb:
What can possibly save you from cutting a sorry figure after being jilted by your very suitable fiancé?Well, if you could secure a movie star as a replacement, it would be bound to still all the wagging tongues!
Studious Dr. Vishakha never dreamed that winning a date with Bollywood heartthrob Zaheer Saxena would land her in an unusual deal to benefit both of them. Zaheer wants to ward off unwanted attention from his leading lady and agrees to help her save her face. It’s just a business-like arrangement for Vishakha – except that she hadn’t factored in the unwanted, yet extremely potent attraction the hotshot star would hold for her. But she has to keep in mind that make believe is his talent before she starts weaving romantic dreams about him.

I’m happy to share with you Book Release day of Bollywood Fiance for a Day. This was my debut book and first published by Harlequin when they began the Passions contest for Indian authors. My story, Her Dream Date won the contest along with two others and I was given a chance to develop the story into a novel. The result was a sparkling, spicy but sweet romance between a serious doctor and a jazzy movie star. I’m excited to published its new edition at Amazon as an ebook.

Here’s something about the book:

Blurb:

Studious Dr. Vishakha never dreamed that winning a date with Bollywood heartthrob Zaheer Saxena would land her in an unusual deal to benefit both of them. Zaheer wants to ward off unwanted attention from his leading lady and agrees to help her save her face. But she has to keep in mind that Zaheer can easily distinguish between pretense and reality before she begins to wish this were a dream that would come true…

Excerpt:

‘You want to go on a date with me?’ He directed a quizzical glance at her.

‘Isn’t that what you just offered?’

‘I just wonder what you’re offering.’ The overtly sexual innuendo in his deep voice, with that sensual husky emphasis on the last word, made her toes curl in her silver slip-ons. At the same time her breath escaped through her teeth at his brashness.

Well, she wasn’t going to let him get to her. ‘A real date.’ She dared to say, ‘That’s what you said and that’s what you get.’

‘This evening just got interesting, I think.’ The Zaheer Saxena brand was highlighted by the sexy clefts in his lean cheeks as he smiled slowly. She totally wished she’d missed that. Hazel eyes caught her gaze, the look sinking into hers slowly, like a knife sliding into butter. She felt the effect of it curl to her fingertips. With an effort she dragged her attention away. She knew it was a bad idea to go on this date, the way she felt near him. Or maybe quite a brilliant one if she wanted to seize the opportunity to…

To what? Lengthen the time she spent with him? Explore why little electrical charges seemed to be running across her skin every time he stepped nearer to her?

About me, the Author:

Ruchi Vasudeva is a doctor by profession, a teacher by vocation and an author by destiny. The writing bug long resided in her till the Passions contest held by Harlequin for Indian authors gave her a golden opportunity to have her dream realized. She debuted in August ’13 with her book ‘Bollywood Fiancé For A Day’. She writes romantic fiction with conflicted characters. She loves to write about spirited heroines getting hurtled out of their daily life as soon as they cross paths with their rather challenging heroes.

Juggling job, writing and family life isn’t something she would recommend to anyone who wants peace and calm but at the end of the day, she finds it very fulfilling. When not bent over the laptop, she might be found with her nose in books or munching nachos at the movies with her husband and two kids or glued to the telecast of Team India in action. Sometimes she drags herself for long walks and surprisingly discovers they are rather good for brewing story ideas. ‘Romance,’ she holds, ‘can feel over-hyped in this day and age but is all too tangible and needed in life on daily basis.’

HIS CHRISTMAS MIRACLE
by

Blurb
 
Her impossible wish…

Kyle Masson, Irish billionaire, discovers he had been married to a con woman. Now, left with the pregnant surrogate mother for his child, he’s determined to focus on being a proper father and to care for her throughout her pregnancy. His experience has left him suspicious and cynical. Duped by one woman, he’s determined to not let the expectant mother, Chrissie out of his sight. So, when she plans a trip to India without his knowledge, he follows hot on her heels.

Chrissie feels oppressed by Kyle’s overbearing manner. After losing her father, she feels confused and alone and wants to get acquainted with the family he left in Goa. Kyle’s heavy-handed tactics drive her mad. But she’s also attracted to him. Surely she can’t be drawn to a man this bossy. And then an insidious, incredible wish begins. That her baby should have both the parents.

As compelling attraction drives them together, the improbable dream appears to take a hazy shape.

But Chrissie knows her dreams are poised to be shattered. For she is bound only to be a surrogate, never a real mother…

His Christmas Miracle is a sensual, but tender romance set in beachside Goa at coastal India.

It is sequel to two other Christmas romance stories, His Christmas Delight and His Christmas Surprise.



About the author
 

 

Summerita Rhayne writes contemporary and historical romance with lots of emotional conflict. She first got published in 2013 and has won contests with prestigious publishers such as Harlequin and Harper Collins India.

When cerebrally confronted with the sizzling interaction of two Alpha characters, the only way to get peace is write their book!
At heart, she’s a family person and even though she loves her medical teaching profession, she happily becomes a homemaker when not at work. She loves winding down with music, romcoms, cricket (strictly watching only) and social networking.

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?

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