BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD was sparked by my love of Bollywood movies. The theatrics, the colour, the music, the drama, the romance, you name it, Bollywood movies have it. My dad got me hooked on them a decade ago and that’s when the idea for Busted in Bollywood first shimmered into my subconscious.
What would a sassy New Yorker Hindu girl do if she didn’t want to marry the man her parents chose? How far would a half Indian, half American girl who finds herself with no job, no home and no guy go for a fresh start?
Shari Jones agrees to pose as her best friend Amrita, travel to Mumbai and break off her arranged marriage. But like any outlandish scheme, things go wrong from the start and snowball from there!
I hope readers have as much fun with this book as I did creating it. And be warned…you’ll end up craving delicious Indian food while reading this book!
IF YOU ENJOYED CRAZY RICH ASIANS, YOU’LL LOVE BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD. AN ABSOLUTE MUST-READ!’ Soraya M. Lane, #1 Amazon bestselling author
Shari Jones needs to get a life. Preferably someone else’s.
Single, fired and evicted, East Indian-American Shari agrees to her best friend’s whacky scheme: travel to Mumbai, pose as Amrita, and ditch the fiancé her traditional Indian parents have chosen.
Simple. Until she’s mistaken for a famous Bollywood actress, stalked by a Lone Ranger wannabe, courted by an English lord, and busted by the blackmailing fiancé.
Life is less complicated in New York. Or so she thinks, until the entourage of crazies follows her to the Big Apple and that’s when the fun really begins. Shari deals with a blossoming romance, an addiction to Indian food and her first movie role, while secretly craving another trip to the mystical land responsible for sparking her new lease on life. Returning to her Indian birthplace, she has an epiphany.
Maybe the happily-ever-after of her dreams isn’t so far away?
Desiree D’Souza is determined to take Mumbai by storm with her fledgling interior design company. To do so, she needs to nail a pitch for the famous Baron Hotel expansion.
But her plan is seriously threatened when her nemesis, and teenage crush, Jarryd Baron blackmails her.
Jarryd Baron will do anything to restore the Baron family hotels to glory, including blackmailing a woman he despises into being his girlfriend for a week.
But when the week is up and the publicity from dating Desiree has catapulted his Mumbai hotel to the celebrity front pages in Bollywood, he knows he has to make their arrangement more permanent.
But can he allow their fake engagement to become real?
