Now that her best friend has found happiness, Annika Bashir is bursting in anticipation for her own happily ever after. Just one problem: Spoiled and utterly vain Annika is engaged to a boorish, “family-approved” lawyer who wouldn’t know how to please a woman with an illustrated set of detailed instructions in hand. He’s perfect on paper, but a real letdown in reality. But as long as everyone else in Annika’s life gives him the thumbs-up, she’ll settle. Mad love is just a Hollywood fiction, after all, and she hasn’t allowed herself to dream that it could as wonderful as it seems to be for others. Marriage, at its essence, is an exercise in practicality.

Enter Dr. Kiran Patil, a handsome, stoic surgeon at a charity hospital who rocks Annika’s world—and entire worldview—when she breaks her ankle during a short trip to India. But this doctor doesn’t do shallow, and scorns vapid women with an affinity for Gucci handbags and extravagant shopping trips.

Will he scorn Annika also? Or will he become seduced by the woman she has become during her trip to exotic and mystical India, a place that seems to have the power to peel back her shallow layers and reveal intense passions buried deep down inside?

After Annika Bashir falls deeply in love with her “hot, billionaire doctor”—or HBD for short—she thinks her happily-ever-after is a sure bet. But her bitter and maligned ex-fiancé, Kareem, isn’t quite done with her -- not by a long shot.


Turns out, he’s taking this matter to a jury of their peers.

And if she thinks her handsome and wealthy fiancé, Dr. Kiran Patil, will swoop in and fix everything right away, she’s in for a rude awakening. Caught up navigating the construction of a new orphanage in India alongside the beautiful—and dangerously flirtatious—philanthropist Lucy Vanderbilt, Kiran faces his own set of obstacles as he strives to get out from under the thumb of his overbearing and controlling father who would like nothing more than for his son to dump the Texas doll and marry into true family wealth.

Unfortunately, Annika is distracted by her own drama and testing his patience.

Faced with the fight of her life in a court of law—and the court of public opinion—she must survive Kareem’s appetite for revenge, betrayal and abandonment by her family and friends, and her dark secret revealed that she isn’t quite the chaste virgin her mother thinks she is. Annika must risk losing everything to save her good name and prove to all the critics that she’s not the same shallow person she was before that fateful trip to India. 

In the end, Annika is face with two choices: A future with Kiran, or her foolish pride.

But choosing is not as easy as it sounds.

What happens when you fall in love with the one guy everyone tells you is off-limits? 

Fire, meet gasoline. 

Attractive, young and equally strong-headed, Scarlett Sommerfield and Dev Bashir were never meant to be a match--at least if his very wealthy and traditional Indian parents have anything to say about it. So it's a good thing that they've despised each other for most of their young lives -- but that's about to change. 


Growing up poor and motherless, smart and ambitious Scarlett is graduating from high school and becoming a new adult in the big scary world without a safe place to land, so when she's invited to move in with her best friend's palatial home on the right side of the tracks for her senior year, things couldn't be better. 

There, she finds security and kindness--with the exception of her best friend's brooding and arrogant older brother, Dev, who returns home from college struggling with his own demons and seemingly focused on making her the object of his contempt. 

Over time--and some ill-timed run-ins--Scarlett learns that he's not at all what he seems, and a forbidden love sparks between them, burning out of control when she least expects it. But when there's fire, there's smoke, and controlling Mrs. Bashir catches onto their young romance...and everything goes to hell. 

Steeped in outdated rules and traditions about love and marriage, the matriarch of the Bashir Family makes no secret that Scarlett simply doesn't measure up as a match for their eldest son. And the very people who made her feel part of the family now want nothing more than to see her gone for good. 

Including her former best friend. 

Will Scarlett and Dev's love survive against his intolerant mother's sabotage, her personal misfortunes and a dark life-changing secret he's kept simmering just under the surface? Or will Scarlett end up back where she started: facing her future utterly alone. 

"This is a quick-moving, sizzling coming of age romance novella, filled with smart, savvy and fascinating characters, navigating the angst of first love with the added complication of interracial and multi-cultural obstacles. Throw in a satisfying Happy-For-Now ending, some steam and sizzle in the right places, and you have an impressive debut from Kennedy Claire." --Bren Thompson 

"A fast paced, beautifully written young love story with intrigue, passion and smart witty dialogue." - Adrienne Chism 

"J.S. Cooper meets Jessica Wood with a dash of Nora Roberts." 

"The Bashir novellas are a fast, fun read and I love that it was a romance freebie!" -Susan B.
