Love – a simple four-letter word has the power to change the destiny of any person. Love is the best thing to happen to us if it is with our Mr. or Miss Right.
I found my Miss Right in Shritha, who changed my life and along with it, my destiny too. I will not claim that I have best love story in the world; but love was definitely the best thing that happened to me, I probably would have never come in front of you as a writer.
This book is a magical journey of love, put through to you, my readers, in a loving way as my life was with Shrita. I hope you enjoy reading about this enchanted part of my life as much as I enjoyed living it and still enjoy reminiscing about.
In A Feeling Named Love is my story, my experiences with love – the best part of my life – put into words.

Attracted to him in spite of her mistrust, Siya is also drawn into a flirtation with Lou, a widowed colleague who is far from her family’s idea of an acceptable husband.

In choosing between two very different men, Siya must reconcile her burgeoning independence and her conservative background. And she must decide what matters most to her-not just in a husband, but in a family, a culture, and a life…
