Temptation in Paradise
5 of 5 stars
After reading ‘Temptation in Paradise’, you’d be hard pressed to believe that it is Jyoti Singh’s debut effort. Nikki and Sid have been fleshed out well, their conflicts feel real, and if Nikki hadn’t snared him, I would have co-opted S…

I loved this book. L.O.V.E.D it!
I wanted to be the one who had written it!Zeenat Mahal, you are so irreverent; you have a naughty, cheeky, humorous voice. I kept grinning; even took my Kindle to work in case I got a minute during ou…

Take One Arranged Marriage...
5 of 5 stars
I loved, loved, loved it! I just read the last word, and I’m still wiping the tears. The ingredients are eclectic: humor, warmth, love, tragedy. No wonder the end product is so perfect. And it helps that Shoma has excellent grammar.
Desired to Death
5 of 5 stars
Fantastic read. Has enough twists and turns to put a pigtail to shame. I confess to suspecting everyone, the suspense was so good.
The Malhotra Bride
4 of 5 stars
The Malhotra Bride is the story of a well brought up, slightly repressed, dutiful daughter, Sunita. Sundari Venkataraman, the author, saves Sunita from being a mere wimp by fortifying her character with spirit. Sunita amply demonstrates …
Ghosts of Florence Pass
4 of 5 stars
brilliant; dark; evocative; vivid!
The Virgins
4 of 5 stars
Siddharth Tripathi writes well. I am a huge fan of books composed almost entirely of short sentences, fast paced action, and lots of tension. How much research he’s had to do I cannot imagine, but his book is outstandingly real. He manag…
Bollywood Fiancé For A Day
4 of 5 stars
Clever and quick, the repartee between the protagonists. Ruchi managed to make the macho hero sensitive and caring! Well done!
Monsoon Wedding Fever

Falling for a Bollywood Legend
4 of 5 stars
Mahi’s story-line is lovely; the book is well written. I enjoyed the conflicts and their resolution. Both characters won my heart!
Secrets & Saris
4 of 5 stars
Shoma’s heroes have a sense of humor and her heroines are sarcastically funny too. I loved that about Secrets and saris. There was a lot of back-pedaling towards the end, but on the whole it was an a-class read. Exactly what I’ve come to…
You Can't Fight A Royal Attraction
4 of 5 stars
After ‘Bollywood Fiance for a day’, it was going to take some convincing to make us believe in Saira- the fiance snatcher! Amazingly, Ruchi Vasudeva pulled it off. She managed to make Saira human and lovable! Hats off, Ruchi. The other t…
His Captive Indian Princess
3 of 5 stars
This is the first Mills and Boon by an Indian Author (amongst all those that I’ve read) where the female protagonist was beaten down by circumstances. Tanu made the oppression sound very real; I could imagine it really happening. The ‘be…
3 of 5 stars
Dreamcatcher is a sweet romance where a Bollywood superstar and a simple beauty fall in love. There are twists in the plot with a bit of suspense about a missing sister, and there is a wicked siren. The first half rings a bit false, sinc…
A date with a bollywood star
2 of 5 stars
The concept was good. I was intrigued that it had been written by a husband-wife duo. I was kept entertained trying to guess which parts were contributed by the husband and which by the wife!
