Today I have the pleasure to introduce a charming novel, a romance from a new promising, female author from Pakistan: Natasha Ahmed. Here is the plot summary, my review is to follow soon. I can’t wait to get my teeth into this, not just because of my personal liking of cross-cultural novels but also because of the not so often heard female voice and perspective from that region of Asia.

SUMMARY: 
On her first holiday in six years, Rumi is expecting to relax and unwind. But when she is set up by her long-time friend, she doesn’t shy away from the possibilities. Ahad, a charming, independent, self-made man, captures her imagination, drawing her away from her disapproving sister, Juveria. 

Faced with sizzling chemistry and a meeting of the minds, Ahad and Rumi find themselves deep in a relationship that moves forward with growing intensity. But as her desire for the self-assured Ahad grows, Rumi struggles with a decision that will impact the rest of her life. 

Confronted by her scandalized sister, a forbidding uncle and a society that frowns on pre-marital intimacy, Rumi has to decide whether to shed her middle-class sensibilities, turning her back on her family, or return to her secluded existence as an unmarried woman in Pakistan. 

We follow Rumi from rainy London to a sweltering Karachi, as she tries to take control of her own destiny.
