Hope you like it, and if you like it, there’s LIVE preview available at the end of the post, you can click it and can dive straight into the book. Enjoy! 🙂

So here goes the blurb:

What would you do if all hopes shatter with a blink of an eye?
I will tell you what you would do.
You will let the fate deal with it.
Or maybe not…

Working as an operations head at Nick’s Software Solutions in Emerald Heights, Paige has her platter full of responsibilities—a demanding corporate job, an eight-year-old autistic son, single motherhood, and a pretty heavy lot of emotional baggage.

She somehow is tackling her insecurities and living the life she never dreamed of when something unexpected happens.

Worried about her son’s future, she decides to hire a dad for him.

In walks, Sacha. Paige meets Sacha on the roadside, and then and there decides to hire him as Tilo’s stepfather without even knowing a thing about him.

Is Sacha the right person for Paige’s autistic son? What if he is not?

Isn’t Paige making a mistake by inviting a stranger to stay with them in her home? What makes Paige so confident about Sacha that she hires him as her son’s temporary dad? And why does she need one in the first place?


Sweet Short Love Stories – The Last Kiss (First Chapter)


Romantic Short Stories Online: The Last Kiss - First ChapterEmerald Heights was known for rains and snow. Today also, it had been snowing since morning as it had happened that unfortunate day.

That day also, it was a snow blizzard set outside when Paige received a text from Ron.

The ground had shifted beneath her feet as she tried to comprehend the meaning of those dark words which shone shamelessly on her smartphone that stormy day.

The coward didn’t even have the balls to call her.

It had been years to that incident but even today, Ron’s memories filled Paige’s heart with murky bitterness.

“Douche bag,” Paige muttered as she folded her woollen sweater and placed it on the bedside table.

Pushing the negative thoughts out of her head, she booted up her laptop and set it on her lap as she leaned against the back of her bed.

The spring mattress of the bed comforted her fatigued body as she toggled between windows, trying to finish some of the day’s pending work.

It wasn’t easy to head a team of hundred young engineering graduates, was it?

Working as an operations head of Nick’s Software Solutions in Emerald Heights, Paige had her platter full of responsibilities. A demanding corporate job, an autistic son, single motherhood, and a pretty heavy lot of emotional baggage.

Emotional baggage? Yes.

Past life never let you live in peace. Regret and remorse always came uninvited and made life miserable, even when you portrayed yourself as a strong independent woman. Even when you believed that you had forgotten your bitter story.

Some life decisions should be taken with great care, otherwise their aftermath always kept you hanging, no matter how far you had gone in your life.

Now, Paige knew this very well. Even after so many years, the bitter aftereffects of that wrong decision had never left her alone. They still lurked in the darkness.

Haunting her existence.

Threatening to rob even the tiniest shred of hope out of her life.

Splattering darkness all over.

Bringing tears to her eyes.
