Blurb
My purpose in life is to protect you… 
 
Sid is Army strong and sinfully sexy. He is tasked to investigate a woman suspected of having connections with a rebel group. The style of investigation was not his choice, and he is asked to move in as the roommate of the person of interest, Amy. 
Amy was thrilled to start her internship in San Francisco and wasn’t expecting a man with rock-solid abs as her roommate. The moment she laid eyes on him, she knew he was bad news. 
 
The attraction was undeniable and they both wondered how long they could hold on to their resolve. Sid didn’t want to sleep with a suspect even if she was wildly beautiful and sexy. Amy wasn’t interested in a fling. 
 
Just when Sid is about close his investigation and declare Amy’s innocence, he finds out something about her that changes everything. She becomes the most important person in his life.

Author Interview – Rubina Ramesh, Author of Finding the Angel.

Had a lovely chit-chat with one of my favorite Indie Romance authors – Rubina Ramesh of Finding the Angel & The Knitted Tales fame. Have a looksy:
Me: Including a Faberge is certainly a new idea. How did you come across it? Did you need to take permission to use Angel in your book?
Rubina: Hi Dola, thanks for these insightful questions. Fabergé had always fascinated me. I used to read about it a lot since my mom was very fascinated about this whole concept of Faberge. I believe in the old ‘bonedi’ Kolkata’s house, these were collected as a status symbol. And since they were priceless, many stories are associated with them.
Even in the European aristocracy, they played a very important role in the mysticism of these Faberege eggs.. But when my mom used to tell me stories about these eggs and how many of them have disappeared – stolen since they were considered priceless. I mean can you imagine Dola, the eggs which we take so much for granted, can be priceless 😛
Since the Fabergé I spoke about is lost and there is no ownership claim, I didn’t need permission for that. But yes I did write to the Faberege company after the book was published and to my surprise they reverted back. It was a wonderful moment in my life. 
 
Me: Your characters are so lively they jump out of the book. Do you plan their sketch or write on the go?
Rubina: Coming from a critique like you, this is a huge compliment. Thank you 😛
I  really wish I could plan out my stories. I have tried that method but failed miserably. I write from one scene to another as my characters take me. Sometimes I do miss a scene or two but during editing, generally I take care of it. But this is not the best method I suppose but planning and plotting never worked for me. I am still working on this method.
 
Me: You have self-published 2 books. I understand you had an offer to traditionally publish Angel but you chose the Indie route. How has your journey been? Do you regret letting go of the trad-pub deal?
Rubina: Of course it’s a dream for every author to be traditionally published. I have that too. But under any circumstances, I refuse to write what a publisher wants me to write. The world of publishing has changed. I would rather have my readers tell me if I should write or not. I can take criticism – as my reviewers will tell you. I cannot take butchering of a book. I like my space a lot. So if my book is bad, let the readers say that openly. For this book, I have five star ratings – not from friends only. And I have  one star  and two star ratings rating too. I accept both with love. Now my aim is to win over that person who gave me a one star rating in my next book.. or the next.. or the next. Writers grow with every book they write and that is the only mission I have in my life.
 
Me: Does the success of The Book Club ever interfere with your writing? Which do you like more, reviewing and marketing or writing?
Rubina: The Book Club is not mine alone. So everyone does their bit. TBC to me is my strength – a virtual world where we can speak about our love for writing without boring the life out of our family. 😛
 
Me: Tell us about your next book.
Rubina: I have two coming up. Maya and Kept. Maya is a two book series though both will have an ending of their own. Maya is a romantic thriller while Kept is a drama or romance – yet to decide.
 
A beautiful love story surrounding a rare antique, Finding The Angel is a lovely read interspersed with a dash of humor. If you’re looking for a breezy romance to read this summer, pick this up. ‘Twas lovely having you over on Shiuli, Rubina. You Rock.

Living the life of a modern day Prince is no easy task for the young and dashing Aryan Ranaut. Having lost his father to a rapacious woman, Aryan has severe trust issues. But upon meeting Shefali, he feels he could let down his guard. Until…
 
All They need is to find The Angel…
 
Just as Aryan realizes his love for Shefali, one of the most precious artifacts, The Angel, goes missing from the Ranaut collection. All fingers point towards Shefali—more so because she leaves the palace without telling anyone on the very night of the theft.
