Where do you go for inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere. It could be something someone said or a place I’ve visited which will spark off a new idea. Once I have the germ of an idea I file it away in my mind and let it grow. That’s the fun bit.

Where did you get the idea for this story?
I’d been to the local annual horse festival and had seen some spectacular stunt riding on magnificent horses and a sheikh with a problem horse slid into my mind. Then, a few days later, I heard the name Destiny on the radio and it immediately stirred my imagination and the sheikh’s horse whisperer heroine was born.

What’s your daily routine when writing?
As I also work on the family farm, having a routine is vital to being able to write. I spend an hour each morning, writing and then it’s time for farm jobs. I will then come back to my writing desk in the afternoon and spend as long as I can there.

Does life ever get in the way of writing? What do you do when it does?
Oh yes! I have to be firm with myself and make sure I schedule in time at my writing desk but sometimes it’s just not possible, so then I will take myself away for at least a few hours and find somewhere like a cosy cafĂ© to lose myself in the world of my characters. It’s the perfect escape.

Sum up new release in a Tweet
The past is hanging over Sheikh Zafir Al Asmari but can he let go of it for Destiny - the only woman he truly wants?


Promoted to Princess! 

Destiny Richards knows she is playing with fire when she accepts charismatic Sheikh Zafir Al Asmari's job offer, but it seems like a fair price to pay to start her life over again. Until the temperature reaches the boiling point and Destiny finds herself spending one out-of-this-world night with the sheikh! 

When powerful Zafir seduces English rose Destiny, he never anticipates she'll hold the title of his Last Mistress. But their scorching affair has shocking repercussions. Now, before their nine months are up, Zafir must convince Destiny to make their arrangement more permanent!

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…
