Until Tanay’s scorching hot kisses threaten to shatter her plans for the perfect pretend date.

Reet has a romantic soul, partly genetic but certainly attributable to the romantic fiction she devours by the kilo. When she’s not watching romcoms, or doing creative things with wool and a crochet hook, or playing Scrabble, she can be found in the kitchen putting together her ‘world-famous’ one-pot meals.
Married for three decades, her prototypical tall, handsome, and sensitive hero-husband still makes her heart skip a beat. Writing about love and happy endings feeds her romantic soul; hearing from her readers thrills her.
Having a mother that read to her, she paid it forward, telling bedtime stories to her sons and nieces until they grew too old too fast. As a reaction to them growing up before she knew what was happening, she began writing for older children, and has published children’s books on Amazon, for Kindle.

Question: How many ways can a boy-meets-girl story be told?
Answer: In as many different ways as there are couples in the world.
Sounds trite, right? But it is true. Perhaps that’s the reason romance readers never tire of reading romances and every author can bring her own twist in the telling.
Reet Singh’s debut romance novel, Scorced by His Fire, is one such delightful read. Tanay and Mita hate each other on sight but can’t deny their attraction for each other. Now that’s a familiar premise for a romance, right? But Reet tells their story with refreshing flair. The story begins in the beautiful island of Mauritius where Mita is a teacher and Tanay is a detective. A genuine misunderstanding between the two keeps the conflict simmering through the story. The blow hot, blow cold relationship takes a turn when Mita is unwillingly coaxed into being Tanay’s pretend fiance. All bets are off as Mita and Tanay struggle to rein in their passions and keep a calm facade. The denouement takes place in Kolkata, and there is also a bit of a mystery thrown in about Mita’s past, that keeps the reader engaged throughout. At times sweet, at times sexy, their tale will keep you turning the pages till the happily ever after. Grab a copy for an entertaining read!
