Ruchi Vasudeva - Back With A Second Book YOU CAN'T FIGHT A ROYAL ATTRACTION

Ruchi Vasudeva was a winner in the Mills & Boon India PASSIONS contest last year.  She brought out her first novel BOLLYWOOD FIANCE FOR A DAY in August, 2013.  She has now followed it up with YOU CAN'T FIGHT A ROYAL ATTRACTION and that too promises to be a great read.  I caught up with Ruchi to ask her how it feels to be an author the second time around to and find out of the myth is true - is the second book really harder than the first one?

Is it really true, Ruchi, that the second book is harder than the first?
Well, yes and no. The story and concept were harder to sort out but that might have been an individual problem in the story. It was hard to make everything satisfactory to the logical left brain which kept on pointing out the holes in the story. The writing itself was quite easier. Though that might be because I was on a deadline! :)

Is this book a follow on from the first?
Somewhat. The heroine is the sister of the heroine of the first book. So the family background is the same. But you don't need to read the first book to read it. It's a story complete in itself.

As you are a working doctor with a growing family, how do you manage to find time to write?
It's difficult but getting easier because we've all learned to adjust. The family is a dream in coping up and I too have picked up speed so things get done a bit quickly. That is not to say the dust mites don't accumulate or I respond at the first call but I'm working on getting there :)

Can you sum up your latest release in a tweet sized sentence? 
Yes I guess. It could be my next tweet! Oh well here goes...
Rihaan...a scriptwriter with a past. Saira...nursing her shattered dreams and broken heart. Can they resist an attraction so obviously wrong?
That's all that can fit in a tweet-size. I checked *smile*

Plans for future releases?  Anything to share?
Harper Collins India is going to be releasing a short story of mine in an anthology, hopefully by New Year. There are a couple of other ideas which I'm working on for next books.


The last thing Rihaan needs in his life is to play a host to a woman who drives him crazy! Saira is gorgeous, yes, but she's also wildly infuriating. Yet every time she comes within an inch of him he finds his normally iron-clad control slipping further and further away... Wanting to protect herself from more heartbreak, Saira knows she should keep her distance from Rihaan -but there's something about him she just can't seem to resist... Little does she know that Rihaan is hiding a secret! When it comes to light will it tear them apart -or raise their passion to new, more majestic heights?

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar

As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
