What does marriage mean for an Indian girl? Whether she marries for love or by arrangement, she’s forced to obey unreasonable demands. But she also wants to live her life on her own terms.

Avni is such a girl. When the man she loves and cares for wholeheartedly, throws her a curve ball, she chooses to walk away. What comes next for Avni?


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






About Ruchi Vasudeva in her own words:
I'm a doctor by profession, a teacher by vocation and an author by destiny. The writing bug has long resided in me and a contest held by Harlequin for Indian authors gave me a golden opportunity to have my dream realized. I debuted in August '13 with my book 'Bollywood FiancĂ© For A Day'. I write romantic fiction with conflicted characters who come into their own in their quest of reaching ou…

PREM PURANA: MYTHOLOGICAL LOVE STORIES by Usha Narayanan


BLURB
Stories of love and extraordinary devotion 
No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained. 
Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana. 
READ AN EXCERPT Ganesha stood with Brahma’s daughter Siddhi on the sacred soil of Kailasa, offering worship to the linga that Parvati had installed. He glanced at his companion’s proud face, knowing that he had embarked on a rough path in attempting to win her over. For now, however, he had to focus on his confrontation with Parasurama …

Book Review: Carthick's Unfairy Tale

Image
Truly a collection of  Unfairy Tales!
Entirely an out of the box perspective on fairy tales! This book has some darkness, cynicism, and humour woven into the fairy tales we have read. I would say a very interesting take on the fairy tales. Some moments are rather shocking but it holds you for the next tale. From the mice to town Hamelin and from the arrogant frog to a wicked magician who wanted the boy to go up the beanstalk, the curiosity of Rumpelstiltskin etc… you are bound to be surprised at the author’s interpretation. One is left wondering, ‘Is it the same fairy tale that we have read?’ After every tale, you are left wondering which other character's eyes, the author is going to write the next tale. A quick, new and different take on fairy tales! And trust me true to its title it is a collection of Unfairy Tales. Blurb: An evil dragon. A damsel in distress. A concerned father seeking a savior. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armor. Now THAT is stuff of f…

Book Review : Sins Of The Fathers by Sunanda Chatterjee

Image
A delightful read!
Sins of father haunting once life is as painful as it can get. From love to pain and from pain back to love is a journey the author weaves in this book. As always Sunanda Chatterjee takes you through unexpected twists and turns before you get to have the happy ending. The story builds up the emotions and anxiety. The troubles and pain the characters go through are brought out so well with its pulsating build up, and the beautiful culmination of the journey is so fit for the story. The love between the protagonists is so smooth and soft, it left a mark on my heart. A delightful read! A great blend of suspense, drama, and romance. Blurb: Police Officer Harrison McNamara grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. The former Wellington Estates heir has dedicated his life to taking criminals off the streets. But when he goes undercover to expose a blackmailing scheme, he meets a freelance model who may hold a key to his past.

For psychologist Laura Carson, freelancing as a mode…

CARTHICK'S UNFAIRY TALES by T.F. Carthick


Blurb

A damsel in distress. An evil dragon. A concerned father seeking a savior to rescue his daughter. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armor. Now THAT is stuff of fairy tales.
But what if the father’s real concern is for the dragon’s hoard; What if the damsel’s reason of distress is the marriage proposal by her pompous and vicious savior; and what if the story is told by the horse who bears not only the overweight knight but also his heavy, shining armor all the way to the dragon’s lair and back, facing certain death in the process?

What if there was more – much more – to all your favourite fairy tales than met the eye?

This book chronicles not one but seven such unfairy tales – tales told by undead horsemen and living cities. Tales of mistreated hobgoblins and misunderstood magicians. Tales of disagreeable frogs and distressed rats and bears baring their souls. Once you read these stories, you will never be able to look…
