A Spicy Nocturne Cravings Novella from Mina Khan!

Happy Wednesday to you all!  I talked my good friend Mina into guest blogging for me today and talking about her amazing novella, THE DJINN’S DILEMMA.  Yeah, I’ve read it!  And it rocks!

Hi everyone! Thanks Rebecca, for inviting me to your blog! It’s such an honor to be here.  Rebecca was a beta reader for my paranormal erotic novella, THE DJINN’S DILEMMA (coming out Nov. 1 — WooHoo!), and helped me make my story the best it could be.
We all have different definitions of what makes a good story. To me a successful story comes from the writer’s heart and touches readers’ hearts. A good story communicates and transforms, creates an invisible, but real bond.
When I go through my keeper shelf and look at my favorite books, the ones I have read and re-read over and over – they all tell a good story. They make me laugh and cry. They have broken my heart, and made me believe love triumphs all.
My hero, the half-djinn/half-human assassin, Rukh O’ Shay was amazing to write. He is mysterious and sinfully seductive, with a dark past and a wry sense of humor. He’s literally made me laugh out loud, sigh and swoon, and even cry as I have typed his story onto the pages. I hope readers love him as much as I do.
He falls desperately in love with his human target, a dedicated journalist and down-to-earth Texas gal, Sarah Jasmine White. While she’s dogged when it comes to her stories, she flounders when dealing with Rukh. What I love about her: she faces her fears, and chooses to be brave.
I hope THE DJINN’S DILEMMA is a keeper story. 
Blurb: Rukh O’Shay, half-djinn and assassin, is used to taking out the bad guys. But his latest assignment, Texas Journalist Sarah White, is nothing like he expected. A glimpse of her bright aura reveals her gentle spirit, while her beauty makes him long for only one thing—to taste her.

Sarah shares the raw desire to connect with Rukh. He can turn her on with a glance, and satisfies needs she didn’t even know she had.
But Rukh had been hired to kill her—and the only way to save her is to find out who wants her dead before someone else finishes the job….
If you read THE DJINN’S DILEMMA, please let me know what you think. You can reach me at:
My Keeper Shelf includes: Tiger Eye by Marjorie M. Liu, Weddings Can Be Murder by Christie Craig, Savvy by Ingrid Law, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. What’s on your shelf?

Bio: Mina Khan is a Texas-based writer and food enthusiast. She daydreams of hunky paranormal heroes, magic, mayhem and mischief and writes them down as stories. Between stories, she teaches culinary classes and writes for her local newspaper. Other than that, she’s raising a family of two children, two cats, two dogs and a husband.
She grew up in Bangladesh on stories of djinns, ghosts and monsters. These childhood fancies now color her fiction.

    I think it’s important for a hero to have a good sense of humor for me to be interested in him. Especially if he’s dark and dangerous. Your hero sounds wonderful! Good luck with the release, Mina!

  11. WooHoo! Another Nocturne Cravings fan ~ nice to meet you Bran 🙂

  12. I totally agree with you Bobby, a sense of humor is a must 🙂 And Rukh O’ Shay is wicked funny ;P

  13. Hey, Rashda. I cannot wait to read your story. You know I have a thing for assassins. Talk about alpha. Grrrr.

    My keepers are wide range… Anne Stuart’s FIRE AND ICE, Linda Howard’s ALL THE QUEEN’S MEN, Lisa Gregory’s (old one here) RAINBOW SEASON, Victoria Dahl’s TALK ME DOWN, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s IT HAD TO BE YOU and a few others that have slipped my mind (I’m terrible at remember titles).

  14. Hey, good to see you Carla! You know I keep hearing about Victoria Dahl…must check her books out!
