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.

My writing day starts super early, at about 5 a.m. because I enjoy the peace and quiet before the rest of the family wakes up and the house erupts into a buzzing hive of chaos and activity. By 3 p.m. I hit a slump and desperately need a pick-me-up treat. Preferably something healthy and yummy.

One of the best answers I found are peanut butter cookies! Made without flour and sugar, the cookies ar... Read more of this blog post »

Glad I started this series...can't wait to see where it'll go (yes, I know war is coming...)! I have to say I enjoyed the two males characters -- Hadrian & Royce -- more than the key female character, which sort of surprised me.

“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

“You’re just a figment of my imagination. A fantasy?”
“Yes.” He didn’t dare move.
“Then why are you still wearing clothes?”
Mina Khan, The Djinn's Dilemma

“She imagined kisses on her neck and shoulder. Soft, light kisses; sharp, playful nips. Damn. Her imagination came in high-definition.”

“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 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?”
