Read some reviews:
3. Meghan Duce
The young and dashing Rahul Sinha lives in England with his parents, Shyam and Rajni. He is an
only son of the rich banker. Rahul is totally attached to his father but does not care for his mother. Read
the book to find out why….
Rahul is exulted with his efforts at work paying off and plans a holiday with his best friend Sanjay
Srivastav who lives in Mumbai with his wife Reema, kids Sanya and Rehaan and most importantly, his
sister, Meghna. Rahul recalls meeting Meghna just before they parted six years ago.
Meghna works for a website and also teaches modern dance as she loves it. She’s thrown for a
toss when Rahul comes visiting. She had thought he had forgotten them.
But how could Rahul do that? Sanjay’s his best friend and Rahul had always treated their home
as his own. Sanjay’s mother had been more of a mother to Rahul than his own. Rahul had stayed away
after moving to England or so Meghna believes.
Thus begins the story between Rahul and Meghna, the teasing, the flirting, the anger, the tears…
…will they find love?

About The Author
Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up
reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It
was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end.
Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While
she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar
situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always
lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years.
Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! She could never string two sentences
together. While her spoken English had always been excellent – thanks to her Grandpa – she couldn’t
write to save her life.
All this changed suddenly one fine day in the year 2000. She had just quit her job as a school
admin and didn’t know what to do with her life. She was saturated with simply reading books. That’s
when she returned home one evening after her walk, took some sheets of paper and began writing. It
was like watching a movie that was running in her head – all those years of visualising Indian heroes and
heroines needed an outlet and had to be put into words. That’s how her first novel, The Malhotra Bride,
took shape. While she felt discouraged when publishing didn’t happen, it was her husband who kept
encouraging her not to give up.
In the meanwhile, she landed a job as Copy Editor with Mumbai Mirror. After working there for
two years, she moved to the Network 18 Group and worked with two of their websites over the next six
years, as Content Editor.
Despite her work schedule, she continued to write novels and then short stories and had them
published in her blogs. She also blogs voraciously, writing on many different topics – travel, book
reviews, film reviews, restaurant reviews, spirituality, alternative health and more.
Her first eBook Double Jeopardy – a romance novella – was published by Indireads and has been
very well received by readers of romance.
In 2014, Sundari self-published The Malhotra Bride (2nd Edition); Meghna; The Runaway
Bridegroom; Flaming Sun Collection 1: Happily Ever Afters From India (Box Set) and Matches Made In
Heaven (a collection of romantic short stories).
2015 brought yet another opportunity. Readomania came forward to traditionally publish this
book – The Madras Affair – a mature romance set in Madras.
