    The Dark Lake

    Something is wrong with Jane.

    It's not that she still lives with her parents in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, although she's well into her thirties. It's not that she can't keep a job, stay sober, or function as an independent adult. It's something else. Something she can't quite remember.

    There was a party. And a car. And the lake.

    The Fifth Season

    Daman Rathore and Muskaan Goel are not what one would call a match made in heaven. They are two dissimilar people fated together! One, a romantic, is in search of her Prince. The other, afraid to love, tries his best to resist being that Prince and fails.

    Accepting defeat, he chooses to become her Prince and protect his Princess always -but he fails again. When the Princess is in dire need of protection the Prince, blinded by his fear to love, deserts her. When he realizes his folly it is too late and the Princess is far out of his reach.

    To win her back and reclaim his love, the Prince has several intimidating challenges to face, from her determination to never go back to him to his ego, his temper and his utter cluelessness of what true love is. On this road to redemption he has to fight Suvedh, the man completely smitten with his Princess, and keep himself away from the dusky socialite Amaira who, with her mysterious aura, captivating eyes, and a body that is every man's sinful fantasy, is willing to do anything to own the Prince.

    Woman with Doll and Other Stories

    This collection of short stories is set in a small, seaside town in the north of Ireland. The characters are known to each other and sometimes appear briefly in each others stories. They live on the edge of life, with their own peculiar way of seeing things and sometimes solving their problems in very strange ways. The sea is a constant in all their lives; for some it is their livelihood; for others a source of peace and solace.
