About this author

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 love Bollywood movies and I love books. Sonali Dev's A Bollywood Affair brings together both in a delicious read. Seriously, this is like a Bollywood romance in a book complete with drama, pathos, crazy relatives, romance, song and dance.


A Bollywood Affair

Bollywood movies have ripped hero with an endearing cockiness and heart of gold. He should be able to flash a "tooth paste ad" smile, br... Read more of this blog post »

I love the Dragon Kin series which Ms. Laurenston writes under the name G.A. Aiken and those led me to try her other books. This is older book and much rougher, but you can see glimmers of the trademark humor.

“So many people say they want a new life, but then they take the new one they get every morning for granted. Don’t do this.”
Marc D. Angel

“Soft woman and hard metal...unexpected & sexy as hell. Had she been real?”
Mina Khan, A Tale of Two Djinns

“I like my tea like I like my men,” I say. With the last name “Grey.” But I realize that’s too forward, so I add, “Black.”

He raises an eyebrow.

“I mean, not that I exclusively like black men,” I say, trying to recover. “I like other kinds of tea. And men.”

“Have you ever tasted...white tea, Anna?”
Andrew Shaffer, Fifty-one Shades: A Parody

“Should she slam his head into the bar or toss her beer on him? Damn shame to waste good beer.”
Mina Khan, A Tale of Two Djinns

“Oh heaven and hell, stop with the tears. Given the day Sarah had just had, the tears were logical. But watching her face crumple, hearing the gut-deep harsh sobs, filled Rukh with an irrational need to pull her into his arms, wrap her in a hug.
As soon as the urge had gelled into conscious thought, his essence hardened into visibility and his arms slid up around her shivering, wet body.
Sarah’s eyes popped open and she staggered back with a yell.
His arms tightened around her, steadying her, keeping her close. Well, shit. At least, she’d stopped
crying.
Fear-bright green eyes stared at him instead.
Given he was an assassin, sent to kill her, her response was natural, even intelligent. Yet, bitterness churned in his gut at the thought of her fearing him.
“It’s okay,” he whispered. “You’re safe.”
“Am I hallucinating?” Her question came out as a croak.
“Yes, yes you are.” That seemed a much better answer than the truth.
She pinned him with her dark, direct gaze. “You’re just a figment of my imagination. A fantasy?”
“Yes.” He didn’t dare move.
“Then why are you still wearing clothes?”
