Cover Reveal of Reet Singh's new book 'No Escape From Love'

Hi Everyone,

Today, I'm very excited to showcase my friend Reet Singh's new book cover. The title of the book is "No Escape from Love". And the cover is just as gorgeous as the title.
But before you get to it, here's what Reet has to say about her new book.... Over to her...

Tejopur, Punjab

Will the demons from their past tear 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. 

Here is an excerpt - a few hours after Mohini and Aalok meet for the first time

The dinner tasted like ashes. In any case, Mohini barely noticed what she ate, her whole being focused on keeping her gaze averted from the acres of bare skin on display.

Acres.

The man was large - and tanned and muscular - and almost indecent in short shorts and a sleeveless T-shirt, this time his own.

She hoped Tejopur's famed mosquitoes would make a meal of Aalok - but while she swiped one away every now and then, he seemed unharmed.

Thick-skinned!

Mohini sniffed and, displeased at the blatant bias, smashed an errant mosquito against her wrist with unnecessary violence, then returned to pushing the food about in her plate.

 

 And now for the fabulous cover of No Escape from Love ....

 

 

Isn’t Mohini gorgeous – and doesn’t she seem pensive?
Aalok is clearly getting to her. Does she get to him, too?

Pre-order it from Amazon here!


The book releases on 3rd March and is available at a reduced price now.
It's free on Kindle Unlimited!

It should serve as the perfect companion as you recover from the festival of colors.
Happy Holi to all my friends and fans. Thank you for your love. -- Reet Singh.

Cover Reveal of New Edition of My Book -- Destiny's Girl

Five years ago, my first book was published by Harlequin/Mills & Boon with the title "The Indian Tycoon's Marriage Deal". It was an exciting moment for me as a writer and I will always cherish that memory.

Strange thing is that I get to do a re-run of that moment. But this time as a self-published author. I am hugely excited at the opportunity to revisit Krish and Maya's story and bring it to my readers with a new cover and title. There could be no other month more appropriate for the re-launch of a romance than the Month of Love -- February!

The story is now called Destiny's Girl. And it has a brilliant new cover... I am sure you will agree with me!

I did wonder if I should update Krish & Maya's story. But as I went through the manuscript, I realized that my protagonists are now not merely characters in my book, but they have their own fictional lives within the pages of the book. Who am I to change that? So, their story is presented as is, complete with its flaws and foibles -- in real life we don't get a chance to change our past, do we?

If you have read their story, I hope you will enjoy revisiting it again when  Destiny's Girl goes online as an e-book on Amazon (stay tuned for the announcement). And if you haven't read it, I'd urge you to do so!

And now... for the C.O.V. E. R.    R.E.V.E.A.L.  <Drum Roll, please!> :)


So here comes DESTINY'S GIRL....



........

........

........





Would love to know what you think of the cover.

And wait.... there is some more news. Destiny's Girl will have a sequel soon. It will be the Happily Ever After story of two characters you meet in Destiny's Girl -- Rohan and Natasha.

So, keep your eyes peeled for more updates on the release of Destiny's Girl and its sequel....

May Valentine's Month be full of love and happiness for you all!

The ebook is available at #Amazon and is free on #KindleUnlimited.. Do check it out!
