When a man loves a woman

Recovering addict Nick Dorsey finds solace in his regimented life. That is until he meets Shyla Metha. Something about the shy Indian beauty who delivers take-out to his Greenwich Village loft inspires the reclusive writer. And when Shyla reveals her desire to write a book of her own, he agrees to help her. The tale of a young Indian girl growing up against a landscape of brutal choices isn’t Nick’s usual territory, but something about the story, and the beautiful storyteller, draws him in deep.

Shyla is drawn to Nick, but she never imagines falling for him. Like Nick, Shyla hails from a village, too…a rural village in India. They have nothing in common, yet he makes her feel alive for the first time in her life. She is not ready for their journey to end, but the plans she’s made cannot be broken…not even by him. Can they find a way to rewrite the next chapter?

“This smoothly written cross-cultural romance…evolves into an in-depth study of strong emotions and underlying motivations. Schiller has a fine talent for describing cultural conflicts, and the characters are multifaceted and endearing.” – Publisher’s Weekly, starred review.

About MK Schiller:

MK Schiller is a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. In the dark of night, she sits by the warm glow of her computer monitor, reading or writing, usually with some tasty Italian…the food that is! She started imagining stories in her head at a very young age. In fact, she got so good at it that friends asked her to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. She hopes you enjoy her stories and find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor. M.K. Schiller loves hearing from readers.

Enjoyable read (Monday, February 1, 2016)
Reviewer: Liz Gavin Author

** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. **
Reading Unwanted Girl’s blurb, I guessed this story wouldn’t be as light as other romance novels I have read recently. I was prepared for tough subjects. I wasn’t ready though for the depth of the feelings I experienced. I avoid spoilers when writing reviews because I don’t’ like reading them when I’m choosing a new book so I won’t give you any. However, I can comfortably say to any potential reader – PICK THIS BOOK right now. You will thank me.
Not only is it an enjoyable romance with steamy scenes but also a powerful story with a few twists and refreshing ideas for this genre, namely the story within the story bit. I particularly appreciated the way M K Schiller fleshed out the characters and built the plots both in the ‘real’ world of Unwanted Girl and in the ‘fictitious’ world of The Choice Less.
Lastly, even though I predicted correctly right from the start what the ‘big reveal’ in the end would be that didn’t make me enjoy it any less. Unwanted Girls was the first book by M K Schiller I read and certainly won’t be the last. Kudos!
