Burdened with despair, Ashish wishes he could change his destiny and end all his miseries. By sheer chance, he discovers the power of the timepiece.

But, can he really change it?

No Safe Zone – By Adite Banerjie – Cover Reveal

Do authors love some of their own books more than others they have written?  Having been a writer for a while now, I believe that every book is special – and I have felt deeply about each of my characters. But if I were to pick that one title that has a special place in my heart, it would be No Safe Zone.

It’s a romantic thriller – my first in this genre – which is set in one of my favourite places in the world: Jaipur. It features a feisty heroine Qiara Rana who is an activist and wants to change the world. The hero Kabir Shorey is to die for – an Intelligence Bureau officer who rides a mean motorbike and catches the bad guys! And these two have a history. Can Qiara forgive Kabir for betraying her? Can Kabir overcome his past and do good by Qiara?

Writing this story was a challenge as it was an escapist romance set in a real world. I’m so so happy to bring No Safe Zone out as an e-book. But before that, I have a Cover Reveal… I hope you love the cover as much as I do. It features the beautiful and mysterious Jal Mahal (in Jaipur) which was an inspiration for my story.

Blurb:

London-bred activist Qiara Rana will do anything to save her mentor and their NGO, Girls Rock!, from ruin. Even if it means visiting the city she had vowed never to return to.  But within a few hours of landing in New Delhi, she is being chased by a gunman and is a potential suspect in the murder of a high profile businessman. The only person she can turn to for help is Kabir Shorey, the man who stood her up ten years ago.

 

On a mission to bust an international women’s trafficking ring, Intelligence Bureau officer Kabir Shorey runs slam bang into the girl who has tormented his dreams. He is determined to protect her but can he save himself from the all-consuming passions that flare up between them all over again?

 

As the past and present collide in a deadly plot of crime and greed that moves from the cosmopolitan streets of London and Delhi to the bazaars and villages of Rajasthan, old secrets are ripped away. Treading the fine lines between safety and danger, truth and lies, love and betrayal, Qiara and Kabir discover that in life there is no safe zone.

And the cover finally…..

” I used to love reading as a kid. Tinkle and Amar Chitra Kathas were my favourite.”
                                                                                                                             – Arti Metroreader

 

After a long hiccup I am back with chat and coffee, my guest blog post, where we talk about the person, her passion, her dreams and her journey. Today we have with us the ace book reviewer, Arti Metroreader. She blog anonymously yet is winner of many hearts who follow her book reviews.

 

  • Please tell us about yourself ?

Hi! I’m Arti and I am based in Delhi. I am a qualified doctor and love reading.

  • How did you go on to become an ace reviewer besides your profession?

A- It occurred to me that there are books which, if I read reviews of, I may not even have bought let alone read. So I thought that as a reader, if I can review the books I read, write the review and post it on my blog, it would benefit those who are interested in the genres I read and could pick the books they want. So I started blogging in February 2013. I have posted reviews of over 1000 books on my blog of various genres such as contemporary fiction, memoirs, romance, chick lit, even mills and boon, Indian authors, short stories, etc.

  • Tell us how books made their way into your life?

I used to love reading as a kid. Tinkle and Amar Chitra Kathas were my favourite. My father was posted at places where there was not much to do in the evenings and the days were small, so my sister and i would go to the library and borrow books. Even when my parents went to watch a movie, they would get us ACKs or other books on return.

During the summer vacations, on our train journeys to Delhi, we would carry books and even buy from A. H.  Wheeler at the railway station.  And at my grandparents home, our cousins would take us to their library. Being the youngest of all cousins on both sides of the family, we inherited books from our older cousins.

So you can say, I actually grew up reading.

  • Tell us about your journey as a book reviewer and blogger?

A-  With studies, my book reading lagged behind and I started reading smaller books and magazines.

Then marriage and kids, so the books took a backseat.

And then one day, my student and now my friend gave me this idea of writing reviews of the books I had read. And thus started my journey as a book reviewer and blogger.

  • You have a very unique name for your blog?

Metroreader because i read mostly on the way to work and back in the Metro.

  • What kind of books you love to read?

I love happy endings.

  • Which books has remained with you forever?

My favourite fairy tale is The Princess and the pea. And Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books.

  • You have read many books so far. Who is your favourite author?

I have read many authors but have now started liking Indie authors. Maybe it is age catching up.

Once more I am starting the guest post series about new books, awesome characters, book reviews, authors and all that makes the life chatpata, entertaining.

So to honour my blog today we have with us the most popular Romance author whose Royal series is making waves in the romance reader circle, Devika Fernando. Today she is going to tell us about the main characters of her latest book, The Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride.

Over to you Devika.

Thank you for having me on your fabulous blog, Paromita.

And for letting me chat about the protagonists of my latest romance novel “The Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride”. I have to confess that I fall in love with every main character I ever write, and inevitably also wish every heroine could be my friend… Here’s a closer look at the two MCs of my new release.

SHE is Ashley Davies from England. Almost 30, with red hair. Together with two friends, she has her own wedding planning business, specializing in destination weddings round the globe. If her friends had to describe her, they would say she’s creative, determined and independent. But Ashley has a softer side that makes her believe in dreams and feel joy when she can make others happy. That’s why she wouldn’t want to trade her job for anything else.

Ironically, although she provides others with their ‘happily ever after’, she’s unlucky in her own love life. This is the first time she’s traveling to India and organizing a royal wedding, and a lot depends on her.

 

If I had to find an actress for a movie adaption of my novel (hey, I’m allowed to dream! *wink*), I would cast Lily James.

rs_1080x1350-180719104650-1080x1350-Lily-James-Best-Dressed-Week

 

HE is Prince Vivaan Arjun Dewar of Yogeshpur (a fictitious city in Rajasthan), an Indian royal. Roughly 30, tall with chiseled features. He’s the younger of two princes and the one with the business mind. Although he fulfils his obligations, he’s always had a bit of a rebellious streak and feels more at home traveling the world than lording it over others and suffering through ceremonies. His brother Manish is about to enter into an arranged marriage—not exactly the right time and place for Vivaan to fall head over heels in love with the English wedding planner. Once she learns about his true identity, all bets are off…

The Prince doesn’t really have friends, but those who know him would probably describe him as dedicated, intelligent and open-minded.

I didn’t picture anyone specific while writing the hero, but I’d love to cast Varun Dhawan as this irresistible Indian prince.

About The Book

 

TitleThe Indian Prince’s Scandalous Bride

Series: Royal Romance (Romancing the Royals Book 4)

Blurb:

Wedding planner Ashley Davies has left England behind to organize a royal wedding in India. She’s expected a cultural shock and lots of unforgettable memories – but never in a million years would she have thought she’d fall in love. When the mysterious and irresistible Vivaan turns out to be none other than an Indian prince, it’s time for her to make a decision: risk everything for the sake of what feels like so much more than a holiday fling, or resist their forbidden attraction and save her job as well as her heart?

Prince Vivaan of Yogeshpur certainly doesn’t want to get involved in the organization of his brother’s grand wedding, but then a free-spirited and smart redhead from England captures his interest. Suddenly he finds himself eager to get to know a woman who would never receive his mother’s royal seal of approval. Should he give in to his feelings or stay away from the ‘scandalous’ wedding planner?

When I penned down The Clockmaker I was not sure how it will be accepted by the readers and reviewers. The reason was supernatural suspense is not evryone’s pick unlike the romance and crime thrillers. However, the story didn’t let me sleep and the characters were shouting day and night to be heard. I wrote without any second thought as it wanted to be written. Before hitting the publishing button I wanted the readers to have a teaser what they would be heading for in the main book.

And I decided to release the prelude ,THE TIMEPIECE.

The reviews propelled me on and I am moving on with my descision.

The Clockmaker RELEASING on 26.05.2019
