Review – Scorched By His Fire by Reet Singh

Scorched by His Fire

by
Reet Singh

The Blurb
Mita Ramphul can’t face another family set-up with a ‘nice young man’. What she needs is to divert her family’s attention so introducing the devastatingly handsome Tanay Devkumar as her new boyfriend is a stroke of brilliance. Until Tanay’s scorching hot kisses threaten to shatter her plans for the perfect pretend date.

He might drive her crazy, yet spending time with Tanay sparks a passion Mita never knew she had. It’s only meant to be temporary, but when Tanay looks at her with that smoldering fire in his ebony eyes Mita can’t help but surrender to the temptation of her fake boyfriend.

My view

Scorched by His Fire is a romance by Harlequin in Indian setting. Reet Singh has penned a lovely, confused, accident prone heroine in search of her roots. The hero Tanay joins her in the quest while pursuing one of his own – he’s a detective, an occupation we rarely see in the typical romances. Inevitably the attraction grows and takes its course while the protagonists fight not to let their hearts take control.  There are some spots which made me go oh really? Also the hero comes across as chauvinistic in places but overall it’s a fine debut by Reet Singh.

The story is simple, the interaction of characters entrancing, the romance yummilicious! I give this book four stars for an easy read and dialogues which sound very natural.

Meet the Author

Reet has a romantic soul, partly genetic but certainly attributable to the romantic fiction she devours by the kilo. When she’s not watching romcoms, or doing creative things with wool and a crochet hook, or playing Scrabble, she can be found in the kitchen putting together her ‘world-famous’ one-pot meals.

Married for three decades, her prototypical tall, handsome, and sensitive hero-husband still makes her heart skip a beat. Writing about love and happy endings feeds her romantic soul; hearing from her readers thrills her.

Having a mother that read to her, she paid it forward, telling bedtime stories to her sons and nieces until they grew too old too fast. As a reaction to them growing up before she knew what was happening, she began writing for older children, and has published children’s books on Amazon, for Kindle.
