Thanks to DiDi for hosting me as part of her Love in Bloom extravaganza.

When I think of love, I think of romance: novels and films (and if you’re lucky, part of everyday life!).

While I enjoy writing romance, there’s something about seeing it on the big screen that makes me truly sigh. And what better medium to savour romance at its best than with a vibrant Bollywood flick?

I love the lush, colourful drama, the beautiful characters, the feet-tapping music, the incredible spectacle. And yes, these wonderful films did inspire me to write BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD.

Whether Shari, Drew, Rita and Rakesh travel to Mumbai or New York City, romance is in the air.

So for a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card, answer this question:

Two lucky commenters will win a digital copy of Busted in Bollywood.  Winners will be selected using on 5/5.  To be eligible to win please fill out the form at the end of this post. 

Shari Jones needs to get a life. Preferably someone else’s.
Single, homeless and jobless, Indo-American Shari agrees to her best friend’s whacky scheme: travel to Mumbai, pose as Amrita, ditch the fiancé her traditional Indian parents have chosen. Simple.

Until she’s mistaken for a famous Bollywood actress, stalked by a Lone Ranger wannabe, courted by an English lord and busted by the blackmailing fiancé.

Life is less complicated in New York.

Or so she thinks, until the entourage of crazies follows her to the Big Apple and that’s when the fun really begins.

Shari deals with a blossoming romance, an addiction to Indian food and her first movie role, while secretly craving another trip to the mystical land responsible for sparking her new lease on life. Returning to her Indian birthplace, she has an epiphany. Maybe the happily-ever-after of her dreams isn’t so far away?

  1. Love, Love, Love the Bollywood films…the color, romance, singing and dancing just really make the movies stand out.

    I know it’s predictable but the city that signifies romance to me is still Paris, France.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. There are so many places that signify romance for me and that’s a beautiful thing. Paris is one and so is Italy.

  3. Thank you Nicola for a great post! A few years back I took my daughter to see Bombay Dreams the musical, it was FABULOUS!! If any of you ever get to see a Bollywood musical production live I highly recommend it. They colors, dancing, energy is just amazing!

    City that says romance for me….anywhere in Italy or Greece =)

  4. I really love Bollywood films too. They are always so colorful, I love the singing and there’s always a HEA.

    Ummm… as far as romantic cities… Venice, Italy. Or anywhere in Spain 😉

  5. I’ve never seen any Bollywood movies. Does anyone have any titles I can check out?
    My pick for the most romantic city is either Paris or Venice.

  6. Paris definitely signifies romance to me also Scotland since most of my favourite historical romance books are set there!!!

  7. Any city can be romantic if you look.
    I loved her book Busted in Bollywood; its witty and lets you into the culture while being romantic.

  8. I’ve been to France, Spain, England and Italy. Venice is the most romantic city I’ve ever visited. Paris was lovely and beautiful but it was also crowded and loud. Venice is cozy.

  9. Darn it, I hate these questions because they speak to my inner nerd. Honestly, any city where my man is is the most romantic city anywhere. I know, gag! jepebATverizonDOTnet

  10. I think Romance is every where in Ireland and Scotland. All of the beautiful land…There has to be romance.

  11. As I’ve never traveled and probably never will. I’d have to say Vegas is romance to me. If I ever get there, LOL.

  12. Oh this is a hard one to pick, there are so, so many romantic places in the world.. I love Ireland, I think there are some beautiful romantic places and I have seen them for myself… But,every time I see the movie, Under the Tuscan Sun, and when I read the book, I can just feel the love…

  13. whoa…i love a bollywoods movie and my fav actor and actress : shah rukh khan, amita bachan, rekha, dimple kapadia, kajol..hihihi to much my fav..

    i think : france and itali

    thanks for the giveaway,,success for you ^^

  14. I think a city rich in history is romantic. But I do have a particular love for Shanghai, especially in the bustling alleyways in the city. It’s such a big and unique city to get lost in. Then again, I may be biased …..

  15. the city that signifies romance to me is still paris and Greece..
    thanks for the giveaway ^^


  16. Anywhere in the world can be the most romantic city or place as long as the two are open with their hearts.
