First and Only Destiny
First Love, First Kiss, Forever Love?
Debut novel from USA Today Bestselling Author
"Beautifully written love story with a perfect happy ever after." Elizabeth Lennox, Author of the Thorpe Brothers series.
First love has never been more intense or heartbreaking-or so worthwhile!
Can shy art major, Lia, resist her attraction to gorgeous genius, Devraj, in a London university? Sparks fly and their lives change forever when their families and friends try to break them apart.
It's love at first sketch for shy, sheltered art major Lia Abraham, when she meets the Bollywood-gorgeous Devraj Shah at a London university. But she refuses to show her undeniable attraction to the gregarious genius, who is being groomed for his family business empire. Nothing can stand between her and her dreams of traveling and teaching art across Europe. No taking risks or detours for Lia!
The last thing Lia needs is a handsome distraction from her true love: art. Although she protests, the charming Devraj, with his dimpled grin and sparkling eyes, convinces Lia to be "just friends".
But inevitably-with one rain-soaked, sweet yet sizzling kiss-their unleashed desire becomes stronger than their cultural divides-a Hindu boy and a Jewish girl? Gods forbid!
As their friendship flares into an all-consuming passion, the growing pressure from both families changes the landscape of both their lives.
Despite loving him to distraction, will Lia's gratitude to her frail grandparents, who raised her, and her loyalty to her cultural ties, force her to forsake the forbidden fruit of her love for Devraj?
Or can she stand up for her first and only love and face their uncharted future head on?
