On Author’s Circle today, meet author and surgeon, Reet Singh, to talk about writing, life and her book, Scorched by His Fire.
Hi Reet, thanks for dropping in and wow! You’re the second romance author slash doctor that I personally know. I’m quite curious about what kind of surgeon but won’t ask since you clearly have your author’s cap on today 🙂
So, lets talk Scorched by His Fire. What’s it about?
RS: Scorched is about Mita, who lives in Mauritius and is not ready for marriage, but has an Uncle who has made it his life’s work to find her a suitable boy. She meets Tanay, who hates her for reasons quite bizarre from Mita’s point of view; she, in her turn, finds him obnoxious, rude and over-bearing. They have their individual, twisted reasons for hatching a common plan – presenting a united front to their respective families. By pretending to be engaged, they seemingly have the perfect arrangement – until Tanay kisses Mita! The attraction between them is scorching; unfortunately, it wasn’t part of the common plan, so, naturally, they fight it, and that’s when the fun really starts.
What’s your favorite line from your novel? Why?
RS: There are about 6000 favorite lines and it’s very hard for me to choose! So I’m going to close my eyes and flip pages, and take the first line on that page. Here it is:
‘Must you wear clothes?’ Mita asked wistfully. ‘You look perfectly delicious without.’
