Did you see?
July 19 is release day for Blaze
I’m listening to Body Parts by Yoke Lore on repeat as I write this edition of The Writer Gal Letter. And that’s because I am insanely HAPPY, Postmate.
But, before I get to all the amazing bookish updates, a little something from home. We got a Mrs. Grady! Okay, so I always dreamed of hiring a housekeeper like Mrs. Grady from The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts - she is warm and smart and brisk and cooks like a fucking dream! And we finally hired one this month, Postmate!
This is the awesome news.
The not-so-good news? I’ve been disastrously unwell with allergies, back pain, hand pain and finally an insane amount of indigestion and hyperacidity for all of June. Long story short, all these health concerns have kept me from attacking Blaze and getting the words out. But, I’m finally on the mend and my body is cooperating too so I can do this now!
So…onto the bookish updates.
Blaze Releases July 19
Yep, I finally have a release date. And it is cast in iron. The book might come before this but definitely not after. So, for all the awesome readers waiting for Blaze to come…you can prep with Burn now. A couple times :P
Here’s the official announcement graphic :D
And the blurb to go with it.
To save their world, they raced to marry. Now, they Blaze together...
Nihaal's F1 season is not going well. AT ALL. He has to score big with the money men who hold his dream hostage. He has to win all the remaining podiums if he wants to win the championship.
Most of all, he wants to live without the bane of his existence - smart and feisty fixer Mili.
His new wife - who hates his very guts. And possibly wishes him dead.
Mili just came back from the dead a changed woman.
All the grudges and secrets that were so important aren't important anymore. The one thing that hasn't changed?
Mili's hate for her brand-new charismatic husband who's always thought the worst of her. And the way his race-rough hands, race-tough body set hers to Blaze.
Never is too soon a time to see him... But, after their secret arranged marriage becomes public knowledge and the paparazzi descend on Mili and Bhatnagar Farm, Nihaal has only one mission.
To protect Mili. To apologize to her. . And to keep his desirous hands to himself while sharing a roof with the woman whose smoky eyes, razor brain, and mile-long legs drive him insane.
The brooding billionaire is afraid he might have finally met his match with the prickly and independent Mili.
Because the last thing she wants is to be safe. Especially as she courts deadly danger head-on.
Nihaal knows the time has come to lay it all on the finish line - his skill, his passion, and his heart... All are set to Blaze.
Blaze is the heat-filled and thrilling conclusion to Nihaal and Mili's explosive marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers romance that began in Burn (Ruthless Billionaires).
When Suraj Met Sia Is Yours To Read For F.R.E.E
The short story I wrote for Stand for Ukraine is all yours to read. For being you. For being here. And standing for me for the last four years and the years before that. As we all have to stand for each other with everything happening in the world because, together, we CAN dissent. And we MUST.
Here’s the blurb for When Suraj Met Sia.
Sia is on a solo trip through the desert dunes of Rajasthan. It’s time away from her boring job and a chance to have an adventure. She’s friendly, vivacious and makes friends with everyone.
Except him. The beast.
Suraj is also on a solo trip through the desert dunes of Rajasthan. But he is looking to escape recent tragedy and a chance to breathe. He’s brooding, miserable and wants to stay away from everyone.
Except her. The bubbly.
Then Suraj and Sia are forced to share one bed! Can these two opposites meet halfway or will it be war?
Note: I’m sorting out my bonus scenes and other free content slowly and I’ll share the pages as they make sense! Also, on the list? A reading order blog that I can refer you and myself to, Postmate. Because with so many books, stories and couples, it takes me a second to remember who was doing what where during which book!
I’m An Amazon Bestselling Author
