Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I have Reet Singh visiting to tell us about her book, No Escape From Love. First, she tells us about this cute little puppy named Coco.
My sister, Trveen, has two doggie-babies. One of them, a Cocker Spaniel called Coco, is an apple fiend. You cannot cut an apple anywhere in the house without him turning up and beseeching with his melty, chocolate-brown eyes.
Worse, if you even pick an apple up - with the intention of stealing away to a secret place so that you can eat it in peace – he is likely to land up at your feet and do the whole ‘I’m really, really starving because my mother doesn’t feed me’ thing.
His mother doesn’t encourage snacking so, one day, I was stealing away on tippy-toes with a plate of freshly cut fruit, when, unnoticed by me, a creamy-brown ball of fur darted ahead to place itself in a strategic position in my path. It was cleverly done, because when I crashed into the ball of fur, only the fruit went flying – I didn’t.
The fruit was gone in seconds, even before I could catch my breath enough to say ‘Coco!’ in a ‘too-late’ sort of way. I ate a banana instead, that day, but I haven’t given up trying to outwit Coco. And I am going to work this incident into my next book, make no mistake. Who knows, maybe my next book will be about ‘Coco – the apple thief’?
While I plot and plan, here’s Coco reading my recently released Romance – No Escape from Love.
Awwwww, look at that cute little Coco. Who could ever resist an innocent look of a puppy?????
So, tell us Reet, about your book, No Escape From Love!
Will the demons from their past succeed in tearing 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. Should they cut and run or give love a chance?
This close up, in the silvery light of a full moon, he looked quite beautiful. Harmless even. She crept closer, ostensibly to pick up her cell phone, but she couldn't look away from the sleeping form of the man who plagued her so much.
Although she wasn't even remotely interested, it was silly to pretend that Aalok wasn't a fabulous specimen. Now that she could stare without fear of embarrassment, she noted spiked lashes that fluttered ever so slightly as he slept. His jaw was strong and square, a determined contour - no wonder he walked about as though he owned the world. At this late hour, his chin was shadowed with the hint of a stubble making him look raffish - very bad-boyish and rather more attractive than was strictly fair.
Mohini itched to know the truth. Was he running away from something? How absurd for a city slicker to come out all the way to a village he had never been to before. Even more absurd was for him to come unannounced.
The city slicker muttered something unintelligible, and Mohini nearly fell over backwards, perched perilously as she was on knees and toes. Her heart sped up - but he didn't waken, and she took in a heaving gulp of air. She was certain her thundering heartbeat would rouse him, but he continued to breathe evenly, his nostrils flaring with every breath he took.
As her pulse settled to a more placid rate, Mohini's gaze moved willy-nilly to his mouth. She gulped - she didn't want to dwell on it, but it was noticeably full and rather fabulously curvy. If she were to grade it, it would merit a ten as far as sexy mouths went.
Whoa! She closed her eyes. So she was a voyeur now?
Your book sounds very intriguing, I think I may have to add this to my TBR pile. Thank you for sharing. Tell us a little about you!
My love affair with books began when I was a tot. A fabulous mother, who recognized the power of the written word, read to me and my sisters every night, introducing us to the wonderful world of the imagination.
I am a doctor, but make time for my other passions – reading and writing stories, watching romantic comedies, and doing creative things with wool and a crochet hook. I also love solving the cryptic crossword, and - when my muse is elusive - I enjoy pitting my wits against my husband's at Scrabble®. When I have no other choice, I can be found in the kitchen putting together my 'world-famous' one-pot meals.
I’ve been published traditionally by Mills and Boon® after I won a two-book publishing contract courtesy of Mills and Boon® India's ‘Passions’ Contest in 2013. 'Scorched by His Fire' was followed by 'The Cure was Love', both in 2014. ‘No Escape from Love’ is my first attempt to publish independantly on KDP.
Thank you so much, Reet, for visiting and sharing your book. I hope you have great sales with it.
If you're a visitor today, please leave us a comment and let us know you've stopped by. We love to hear from our readers. Thanks much.
