Taurus Temptation is my first novel by the writer Sundari. It's a modern work explaining the plans & goals of today's youngsters while at the same time telling us how two zodiac signs of extreme characteristics fall in love with each other. Youth today desire to be self-governing & begin something on their own, rather than be held to a 9-5 job in a firm. Giving both the older & younger generation's opinions was indeed a clever move.

Who doesn't fancy being a member of a budding passionate connect

Although Sundari's 50th book is 'written in the stars' as the title says, the book's narrative is grounded in reality. It's a story that youngsters of today would relate to, and so would the older generation as it shows both points of view without being judgemental. Add vicious sibling rivalry to the chaotic drama and you have an interesting read. The characterisation was not only based on the Taurean and Cancerian traits of the main protagonists, but was further developed into the people they b ...more

While reading this book, I felt this is the book about happy forever types. This book does makes you have a tingling sensation that you have ,when you read a romantic book. All this while, while reading the book I had a smile plastered on my face as if I am the character and I am relieving those moments. What more do I say that I

My Take:

Simplicity and minimal characters along with strong plot and simple narration. A story that makes your heart dance and mind relate to the characters. All the emotions are justified and something we all feel. The story has something for everyone, be it a family bond or siblings or lovers.
Vidyut and Janani are engaged to be married and with a change in career his fiancee not very convinced throws an ultimatum to get back to job. When he doesn’t she returns the ring and breaks the engagemen

As usual Sundari Venkatraman has managed to wow me. How does it do it time and again? This is her 50th book and none of her plots overlap. Her characters are all fresh and unique and you fall in love with every one of them.
I love Haasini. She is young, bold, adventurous and totally unapologetic about who she is. She makes mistakes and owns up to them without the guilt and self recrimination. Vidyut is his own man. He is determined and takes the responsibility for his own life. He does not depen

An entertaining read

Vidyut has just started his own coffee shop after quitting his high paid job. His parents and would be in laws were having a hard time accepting his decision when his Fiancee broke up with him. Soon after, his cafe started blooming and he met Hassini. Next, their relationship blooms through a series of ups and downs ultimately ending in a happily ever after.
The storyline and narration was good but not extraordinary. There were instances of melodrama and conflict in the story.

Another good one from the author. Vidyut is a metrosexual man with high regards to family values and Haasini is cute and perfect for Vidyut. Though the storyline is simple, I enjoyed the sophisticated setting of the cafe and the conflict between conservative Janani and vivacious Haasini.

I love the concept behind this series. Author gives us subtle hints about the sun signs of the characters, which adds to the entertainment quotient. A breezy and fun read..

A typical tale with steamy romance embedded in it. The writing style is admirable and it is organic too. The complications and turmoils in life is presented faithfully. A fun filled way to read this so as to relax and ponder abou

“Love must not entreat,' she added, 'or demand. Love must have the strength to become certain within itself. Then it ceases merely to be attracted and begins to attract”. The lines as stated here are quite reflective and pertinent to the book at hand today, especially with regards to the context of the same with certain other flavors as well. Delving further into the same, the storyline revolves around the character named Vidyut who has cut off himself with an engagement and with the same, there ...more
