4.Books the Breakdown: Kangana

What started with Devan Coultrie moves on with Gorbind Phalla

(Gorbind is my favourite. Please don’t tell Devan)

I’ve not come across many romance books with characters of South Asian Origin. I felt that there was something missing. In all the mills and boon’s that I would walk past in the library, there was something missing.

As with Devan. I decided to do something about it.

This is a sweet romance between Gorbind Phalla and Padmi. A romance that integrates family dynamics and cultural experiences.

Yes, Gorbind is my favourite.

I might date a Devan-get my heart broken in the process-but I’d marry a Gorbind. Or try to, at least.

He is also my attempt to broaden out books, add characters from diverse backgrounds. Tell stories that might not otherwise get told. He like Devan is a slightly different male lead for a romance.

He started off a bit-part character in Fragments, and he continues to grow.

You’ll see how, in the rest of the book breakdown.

3.Books the Breakdown: Devan Coultrie #PEACESERIES

Well! This is a book adventure and a half!

Who is, this Devan Coultrie?

There are three books, and a movie currently in editing that help us understand who he is.

A former hedge fund manager from Rugby, UK who flies off to Montana, USA to start a new life.

He sticks a pin a map, and off he goes.

Devan Coultrie was my first foray into Contemporary Romance. I grew frustrated with the lack of South Asian Characters in books that I was reading. There were also so many not so savoury tropes in these books. So I decided, with the help of the Peace Novella Series Authors to create one.

Start with Retreating to Peace, where we meet Devan. He’s about settle in the fictional town of Peace in Montana. He’s all for a new beginning, and has a bruised heart.

He then settles, his life get busy with Postcards from Peace. It all seems okay, with the odd bit of drama thrown in,

Then, things take a turn, and we have Peace Betrayed. Devan does things that might stretch our love for him.

Now, I mentioned a movie!!

Yes, a short film is in the works. Devan Coultrie is Unwell is currently in Editing. The exact mid-point of the Devan Coultrie Saga was shot and developed last summer/autumn.

WE HAVE A VERY REAL DEVAN COULTRIE!

There is also a real Aditi Rao.

More news on that later. In the mean time, go read the books!
