Release day: The Lost Souls Dating Agency
Today is the official release of The Lost Souls Dating Agency by Suneeti Rekhari (ebook, Harlequin Escape). Here’s the blurb:
She started out as just an ordinary university student, but the sudden and unexpected inheritance of an unused warehouse on the industrial side of town throws Shalini’s life plan askew.
Drawing from her strengths, she decides to set up a matchmaking business, helping the lonely to find a soulmate. But something unusual happens, something unexpected—her first client doesn’t fit the regular profile. Victor is dark, handsome, emotionally available … and a vampire.
Suddenly Shalini’s already disrupted world becomes a place where rules no longer apply. She must learn to adapt to her new occupation of finding The One for a prospective clientele of vampires, shape-shifters, and other beings more likely to bite first and ask questions later. And there are those out there who are less than happy with her entrepreneurial spirit.
But just as Shalini begins to think she can cope with anything, she discovers that she has bitten off more than she can chew, and played with powerful forces that have the potential to not only destroy the Lost Souls Dating Agency—but Shalini herself.
Suneeti dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I started writing this book in response to questions about ‘arranged marriages’, in particular ‘How do they work?’. It began as a story about a mild-mannered teenage Indian girl who starts a matchmaking agency. Then, quite unexpectedly, it took a paranormal turn when I realised that humans shouldn’t have a monopoly on arranged love. Plus, arranging a match between a were-shark and a were-kangaroo produced all sorts of mischief that just HAD to be written about. The romances take such twists and turns that I’ve acquired special wrangling skills. But I’ve had tremendous fun writing Lost Souls, and I hope you’ll have just as much fun reading it. I recommend a pot of mid-strength English breakfast tea and strawberry teacake as perfect reading accompaniments.
