The Anthology:

A woman is like a palette of colours. Just like the colours, she too displays a different tint and shade at different points of time. The colours you perceive are the ones you make her show. If you love her, she will adore you; if you give her wings she will soar but if you hurt her, she may take time but will one day bounce back in retaliation.

'Skylines' is a collection of fourteen different stories which revolve around women - the buoyant teens, the chirpy youth or the matured ladies. Different encounters and circumstances in life make them either very tender, fragile or reactionaries and bigots. Do read on to understand these colours of life...

Pa why you are scared off Maya Auntie  . Hmm U mm Beta ....Your Maya is the cause of the heart aches which we had gone through in early stages of our lives .Trust me children I feel worse to remember those moments .But then we would share with you both  our love story only under one condition   that you break ties with Mohan and Rohan...Pa how is it possible ?Pushkari and Preeti responded unanimously.


Beta our story will force you to break the ties with them."Our story starts with my love story with Maya who actually is not my sister "V said by keeping N hands on his thighs  .

My first love :I feel in love with Maya for her charms which she had shown during those days when I was not a matured  guy .  Slowly slowly when I slightly became little matured   I could not handle Maya 's temper tantrums then ....later on  Namarata i.e. your mom comes into my life as a 'Relationship Adviser  basically a counselor .

Then ...what happen ?Pushkari queered.Then ..chaos in our lives began and then fights  , war of wills ...that means showing off their powers and paws (having a cat fight ) started .In the midst of this...N closes her eyes and says 'It's lunch time dearies come let's have lunch first then Pa shall continue with the remaining half of the story '.
'No Namrata we have let go our past dear' Vikram said frowning at his wife N.With tear sipping through her eyes she comes back and sits too close with her head resting on his shoulders  .V puts his arm around her  shoulders and pulls  her close.

V continued by saying Maya spun a web of lies regarding your mother N which hurt my feeling a lot . I did  not speak to her after that  and eventually got married to Maya....But then....one day the truth of Maya's web of lies came in front of me which left me no where. I started feeling hopeless as well as depressed .One day when my friend saw my condition he decided to speak to her . Then after his friend spoke to me regarding your father's V's health condition .I decided to treat him and rest is history you must know dearies .



 Pushkari smiled at them and said "Pa ...Ma ...Today I realize your apprehensions of us  befriending and loving Mohan and Rohan".
 Saying so she hugs them lovingly.

Book Review of Golden Heat by Ju Ephraime


 Review Tour Signup and Schedule: Golden Heat by Ju Ephraime (18-21 August)

Welcome to my stop on the Review Tour of Golden Heat by Ju Ephraime. This is a spicy romance with an intriguing twist of mystery.


Check out the complete Tour Schedule here

~About the Book~


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Native American

Blurb:

Andy Redfield is a hard-nose real estate developer, trying to settle his father’s estate and locate the treasure that was mentioned in his father’s will. Bernie Harp is a no-nonsense, private investigator, and who specializes in locating lost objects. When Andy hires her to find his dad’s treasure, she anticipates working alone, as was her custom. She communicates this to Andy in no uncertain terms, but Andy was having none of it. If anything, he was more determined than ever to lend his assistance. When finding the treasure becomes more than a routine job, and the presence of a suspicious intruder is discovered, tempers flare and sparks fly. While they have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye, Andy and Bernie agree on one thing: They need to capture the intruder and locate his father’s treasure.
Kicking and screaming, Bernie is forced to accept his presence on the job, even though it was distracting as hell. With them rubbing each other the wrong way, before they know it, the friction they generate turns to love’s golden heat, igniting a fire neither expected, and neither could deny. So, when Bernie unexpectedly disappears, Andy realizes she was more precious to him than all the treasures in the world, and he’d give up anything to find her—anything, including the treasure, only is he prepared for what he finds?

#Toranado Giveaways 2 Spotlight of Book . 33 THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU by Yashodhara Lal

#Toranado Giveaways 2 Spotlight of Book . 33 THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU by Yashodhara Lal





Name of the Book: THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU
Author: Yashodhara Lal

Read some reviews:

1. Kritika Narula
2. Sankalpita Singh
3. Nandhini

The Story:

This is not your typical boy-meets-girl story. Okay, they do meet, but there are some complications.

Trish is twenty-eight. She’s unemployed, overweight, single and snarky. She knows all that. And if one more person – just one more person – tries to fix her, she might explode. Sahil is thirty-five. He has superpowers. Well, kind of. He seems to think so, anyway. He’s also hot (okay, in a geeky kind of way, but still). And he plays the guitar, helps the underprivileged and talks about his feelings. Aren’t guys like that supposed to exist only in fantasies?

When Trish and Sahil meet, magic happens. Real magic, you know, like fireworks, electricity, that sort of thing. But here’s the problem. Trish doesn’t want anyone in her life. She has enough to deal with – dependent parents, flaky neighbours, bitchy editors, the works. And yet, Sahil is determined to be in her life.

From the bestselling author of Just Married, Please Excuse and Sorting Out Sid, here is another zinger of a book.
