About The Author

About The Book
Gargi Kapoor is the only one convinced her brother, Dev, is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. When he is sent to the hospital with an unexplained paralyzing disease she finds herself having to lean on the last person she'd ever want to depend on -- a man who wants her brother to pay for stealing his mother's life savings.
Leon Reckley is extremely satisfied to find the man who ripped his mother off suffering from an unknown disease that leaves him paralyzed and in need of rehabilitation therapeutic services. He's even happier when he is given the opportunity to be the therapist that makes him fit enough to return to prison to finish his sentence. No one will work harder to make sure Dev Kapoor serves every minute of his prison sentence.
Gargi never dreamed the man who has utter contempt for her brother would be the man she slowly begins to trust. Leon never thought he'd be convinced Dev might be innocent, let alone be drawn to his enemy's little sister. Together, will they find the truth? Or when Leon's job is over, will it simply be time to say goodbye?
What makes you feel inspired to write?
I am inspired by people. Everyone has an interesting story to tell. From childhood memories to experiences, to business ideas and more, people inspire my stories. If I only had one wish, I’d like to speak and understand every language in the world. Imagine the stories I could tell.
How did you come with the idea for your current story?
I love Indian food and I have a lot of Indian friends. As I was doing some thinking for the second book of my Michigan Sweet romance series, I got to thinking, what if an Indian girl started to fall for a man who’s considered ‘trailer trash’? The idea sprung from there.
What is your favorite scene in the book? Why?
My favorite scene in this book is when Gargi calls Leon, ‘laal sher’ and he thinks she’s calling him ‘Lyle’. Throughout the book, that’s a recurring thing. When he begins to fall for her, he doesn’t even mind she’s calling him ‘Lyle.’
What is the highest goal that you desire to meet as an author?
I love connecting with my readers. My goal is to create stories my readers connect with and enjoy. It’s a simple goal but that requires a lot of effort. Learning about the craft of writing, staying up to date with market trends, building loyalty with readers, and so much more.
What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
Write until you get to the end. Hard part is done.
What do you have in store next for your readers?
I am working on several projects including my first historical romance, a contemporary sweet romance for the next Michigan Sweet volume, and a sci-fi novel. There’s more but they’re moreso ideas in my head right now.
