Book Review :: 'Rescued By Love' by Shilpa Suraj

Book Review
Genre: Romance (M&B, Harlequin)
The Blurb: 

When Naina Ahuja is kidnapped as hostage days before her father, a Supreme Court Chief Justice, must sentence a terrorist, the stakes are very high. Lt Col Arjun Rathore and his team are the only ones who can be trusted with the mission of saving her. 
During their arduous trek back through the hostile terrain of Ladakh, Arjun and Naina spend days in danger of losing their lives - and their hearts. Back in safety, the real world and its very real problems threaten – as do their own perceptions of the differences between them. 

They must separate – but will life rescue their love?

My Review:

Oh my, where do I start… don’t we all love a little action, some tingling thrill, along with hot passionate romance. A little distance from the loved one, tiny misunderstanding and then getting reunited by divine faith, or shall I say a practical, concerned brother.


‘Rescued By Love’ has all these elements and more. Naina meets handsome, tough, six-pack-abs-type Lt. Colonel Arjun, on the treacherous mountains of Laddakh, where she has been kidnapped by the terrorists. Macho Arjun and his team rescues, the petite Naina (love the name) and for four days, they walk to the nearest army base and love blossoms. But she has been promised to someone. Bound by moral code and honor, they sacrifice their love once and… again.

Will Naina survive her heart breaking not once, but twice? Will Arjun ever put her above his self-inflicted principles? Shilpa Suraj keeps throwing these fantastic twists throughout the fast-paced story, with exceptional word-weaving skill.

‘Rescued By Love’ is a dazzling, sensuous, romantic story, right from the terrors of Laddakh to festivities of Goa, which keeps the reader on the toes of their mind J. The protagonists are charismatic yet rooted, beautiful yet relatable. The supporting characters are well etched, be it Arjun’s fiancĂ©e or his brother, Naina’s friends Ethan and Priya, even the army team members struck a chord with me.

Superb narration with right balance of dialogues and prose, made Rescued By Love one of the most wonderful read.

Tender, passionate, action packed page turner. Highly recommended!

About the Author

Shilpa was a year and a half when she was first introduced to the world of books. Her mother would park her with a picture book on the floor of the kitchen while she finished her cooking for the day. While it’s no longer the kitchen floor, you can still find her tucked away in a cosy nook somewhere with her nose buried in a book. While books in all genres interest her, it was romance that captured her heart. While racing through every romantic fiction book she could beg, borrow or buy, her over active imagination started to work overtime and weave its own stories. Years in the corporate world followed by a stint of entrepreneurship crystallised her belief that all she really wanted to do was give life to the stories bubbling inside of her. She briefly managed to tear herself away from the world of fiction to find her own personal happily ever after and now spends her time happily focusing on the two loves of her life – family and writing romances.
