GET MY BOOK

Smastrus was meant to be a perfect human-being, with all the eight attributes (rasas) of a remarkable personality. But at the age of fourteen, his existence is so burdened with poverty and persecution that the quality of his life is little better than an animal’s.

He knows nothing about his absent father. His broken-spirited mother is half mad. And then there is Smast’s cousin, Pintu — a privileged boy with a flair for devising novel ways of inflicting pain and humiliation on the weak and the defenceless.

Smast’s first-ever act of defiance shatters two things simultaneously: a couple of Pintu’s front teeth and Smast’s entire world. He falls upon the mercy of a merciless woman — Sona, Pintu’s enigmatic, evil mother. 

What could be easier than fully crushing someone who has already been beaten to a pulp? But a mysterious power is awakening in Smast, and the battle between Sona and Smast will not be so unequal after all. 

Long-buried secrets will crawl out of their watery graves, illusions will overpower and distort reality, and an unforgettable hero will embark on an incredible quest.

About the Little Lantern Trilogy: Just as sprawling trees come from tiny seeds, Smast’s pleasure trip (after the events of Book I) will birth an epic journey spanning several years and hundreds of miles. 

From being almost-lynched for a soul-scarring horror to forging an unlikely bond with a downcast princess, from being abducted by a devilish dwarf to being accused of a monstrous policeman’s murder, Smast will have enough mind-bending adventures to last many lifetimes, but everything is just a prelude to the ancient magic awaiting him in a faraway, breathtaking Himalayan valley…

Harper can’t stay.

And Alex can’t get too attached to her.

But their resident ghost has other ideas…

Harper Castellano is only in Louisville long enough to help her family market their latest project—a former distillery from the 1890s that they’ve renovated into luxury downtown lofts. She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the city—or rocked right down to her designer heels by Alex, a hot, gentlemanly accountant who’s come for a tour. Too bad the loft she’s just sold him has turned out to be haunted.

One look, and Alex Morehouse knows Harper is his sexy, savvy, tattooed dream come true. So if the troubled ghost of a Victorian woman is enough to keep her from moving on to the next city, and her family’s next project, then how can he fear what goes bump in the night?

But the more time they spend researching the ghost’s ties to the distillery, the more they realize their sizzling attraction isn’t just about heat. And the more risks their ghost takes, trying to send them a message. Soon, this mysterious woman invades Harper’s dreams with visions about her tragic death long ago, and the terrible consequences of abandoning true love. But with so much riding on her future with Castellano Enterprises, will Harper linger long enough to hear what she’s trying to say?
