  • How to Seduce a Billionaire (Black Lace)

    HOW TO SEDUCE A BILLIONAIRE…

    … without really trying!

    Twenty-nine year old virgin Jess Lockhart has had to put her life on hold due to family commitments, but now it’s time to break out and start enjoying sex and love. Trickily for her, years of artistic dreaming and fantasising about her first ever lover have given her impossibly high standards where men are concerned. She’s not about to do the deed with just any old male that crosses her path. He has to be Mr Right, or at the very least Mr Sex, right for now, and a super special, superior example of his gender. Nothing less will do…

    Ellis McKenna has all the credentials to be Jess’s ‘Dream Lover’. He’s gorgeous, accomplished, capable and a fabulous lover, and he also just happens to be the scion of a family whose international assets can be counted in the billions. He’s perfect Mr Right material, apart from one thing… the thing that makes him Mr Wrong for any woman wanting a relationship. Ellis is a grieving widower who’s sworn never to love again. He wants sex, yes, and plenty of it, as a way to forget his pain… but his deeper heart is locked away by regret and sorrow.

    Can this unusual couple put aside their issues and enjoy a simple seduction? Or will life’s complexities put a spanner in the works?

  • Skin Deep

    A fiery news reporter, Simran went undercover as a contestant in a pageant to expose the dark underbelly of the beauty business. But little did she know that she was being used as a pawn in a much bigger game.

    A seemingly acquiescent girl, Sania fought against patriarchal forces within her family and community to fulfil her dream of becoming a model.

    A media baron’s daughter, Sunidhi was at a vantage point in life but she frittered it all away with her entitlement.

    On the other hand, Shikha, who came from a humble background, used her body as a currency to get ahead.

    In a world that has commoditized femininity and idealized only one body type, Skin Deep is the story of four girls with diametrically different views about beauty and how their lives get inextricably enmeshed. They all get a rude awakening when a shocking incident reveals how the big bad world of ‘glamour in the buds’ breeds cradle snatchers, who are ready to devour anything.

    Inspired by true incidents, Skin Deep shines a light on the ugly truth behind the facade of beauty

    and glamour…
