Sharing an excerpt from new release Bollywood Fiance for a Day. In this, Zaheer puts an idea into Dr. Vishakha’s head.
‘Don’t just keep on feeling angry about it. Do something.’ The command startled her.
‘Something to show her.’ The comment caught her attention. ‘The best revenge of all is to live well,’ he quoted softly.
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.’
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.
Hi Folks, Today I’m hosting cover reveal of a fabulous book by romance author and dear friend Jennifer Faye. And *drum roll* without much ado, here it is 🙂
Isn’t that a gorgeous cover?
Have a look at the blurb:
The guy from the wrong side of the tracks…
Being promoted should be a dream come true, only it means working closely with Cleo’s childhood crush, Jax Monroe. Jax may no longer be the rebel she remembers, but he still gets her heart racing like no other.
Jax cares too much about Cleo to let her get too close—but keeping his distance is proving impossible! As Jax reveals the extent of what he’s been through, will Cleo show him that some things are too precious to put off until tomorrow?

About Jennifer Faye:
Award-winning author, Jennifer Faye is constantly weaving a new story whether in her mind or on her laptop. Maybe that’s partly due to the fact that she has spent most of her life with her nose buried in a book. It was only natural that she would go on to spin her own tales. Now living her dream, she resides with her patient husband, amazing daughter (the other remarkable daughter is off chasing her own dreams) and two spoiled cats.
Stalk her at:
I think no matter how many Sheldon books I read the main line of the review would be the same, at least for all I had read till now, and that is: you can’t put it down. If you have the time in your daily routine and even if you don’t, it holds true. He’ll build on your curiosity and when it’s at the peak he’ll veer off to what looks a totally new direction, a haphazard tangent which is usually terribly frustrating to the reader. So much that you have to keep yourself glued to the book.
In this book a new rarely read and interesting subject has been taken. Mental illness, murder, anger all is intertwined tightly in a rope you will find hard to unravel till Sheldon decides to hand the thread. While I was reading and right when I finished it, all I could think of was one word. Brilliant. But now I have had a chance to look at it dispassionately and yes, I’m doing the author a disservice assessing the book after emerging from the cloud of absolute spellbinding fascination he’d woven with his tale. Anyway, on reflection, to me many things were too pat. Some characters were too easily fooled. Some questions left unanswered. That’s about the argument I can present without citing a spoiler.
I give it five stars for hooking the reader (readability), five stars on concept, four star for my takeaway impression.
If you want a book to take you away from your present and have you grappling with its incredibility, go for this.
If you’ve read it, what was your impression? Are you a Sheldon fan? Are you irritated by an overdose of suspense in his books? Share your views. I’d love to hear them!
