Last Minute Love by Romi Moondi


What's a girl to do when she meets the Internet man of her dreams, he's better than she expected, but he lives an ocean away? And let's not forget her parents,who are trying to lock her up in arranged-marriage doom...

In this fast-paced story of culture clash and romantic pursuits, there's a big fat Indian wedding, the struggle to keep a long-distance flame alive, and an unexpected mystery man who could set a new course in motion.

All the while, our heroine abandons what was once an all-consuming man-search, which helps her remember the person she used to be, and the person she hopes to become; the history-loving nerd, the hopeless romantic, and the emerging author with dreams of ditching the corporate rat race.

This is the book of living in the moment, making the grand gesture, and putting it all on the line. This is when Romi Narindra comes alive...

-----------------------
"Last-Minute Love" is book two in the fictional "Year of the Chick" series. It follows closely from book one, but contains enough detail to be read as a stand-alone.
LENGTH: 74,000 words or approximately 280 pages
DISCLAIMER: this book contains occasional F-bombs and mild sexual references; hide your daughters!

Author Bio:

I am Canadian, and here are some strange personal facts:

-I wore denim-top-to-bottom in high school (there is a direct inverse relationship between how much denim I wore and how few tongues were launched down my throat at school dances...or anywhere in high school at all).
-A homeless lady in New York once told me "You're just a bitch on vacation with no money!"
-I always hated those insufferable couples who would cuddle and make out on the subway...until I became half of one. But now I'm back to being none of one so I hate them again.

The thing I love most in the world is writing. When I first started publishing on Amazon it was my "crazy" humour side ("The Book of Awful," and "NOT Love Poems For Real Life"). Since then, everything has focused on my "Year of the Chick" series, because it's the most important thing to me in the world right now. I guess that would tend to happen, when your writing is inspired by real life, including all the satisfaction and risks that come from that.

My "Year of the Chick" series can be described as "edgy rom-com," which helps me account for the blunt conversations and mortifying family moments in the book ;-).
Book 3 in the "Year of the Chick" series will be written and released in 2013; until then I have some adventures to go on!

    1. Hi Anonymous, thanks so much for your comment, it's so wonderful to find readers who share some of the emotions my characters did (and that I did, after all, it's inspired by real life ;-) ). So the third book probably won't be out until Sept 2013, but that's only because I want to see, feel, and breathe Paris first-hand so I can write the best possible book; in the meantime if you use Facebook you can join my page, or subscribe to my monthly newsletter where my updates are hopefully interesting, thanks again!
