La Kayshalabout this book: The Lost Crown is an adventure/romance book based on an exotic location, the golden city of Jaisalmer, India. In search of a crown lost centuries ago, Dr. Ryan Johnson, accompanied by his happy-go-lucky friend, Christian Willis, travels all the way to Rajamahal palace in Rajasthan, India. History said that the crown with an invaluable rare diamond was hidden somewhere in Rajamahal. What was supposed to be a fun archaeological excavation, turns out to be a game of life and death when Ryan picks up a street fight and himself in a messy situation with a feisty beauty, Deiva Chauhan. Both deny the first sight sparks of attraction that flares between them. However, fate has other plans when Ryan is simply ordered to act as Deiva's fiancé in exchange for exploring the palace. An easy ordeal if the two can only get along. Soon Ryan discovers that there is only one clue that can lead to the lost crown, if one can only have faith in this belief, that magic was involved in hiding the crown. A risk and an arrow shot in the dark leads to a series of clues and a game of life and death. How far is Ryan willing to go in his quest when the very existence of the lost crown is a mystery on its own?
The Lost Crown has a lot about the Indian culture and the exotic location of Jaisalmer. This would interest people who like to read about different cultures. I just love reading love-hate classic romance novels. Yes where the girl is the innocent type and the hero is a handsome rogue. More spicy if they are forced into an arranged relationship! In addition, I am a big fan of treasure hunt adventure movies. I was just not getting enough of a combination of romance and adventure books, hence, I started writing one
This book has it all: romance, action, adventure, suspense, mystery, fantasy and thriller. The story is such that it will keep you turning pages.
I am an Indian who has never set foot in India! Hence, I did a lot of research about Rajasthan. However, the story has mostly fantasy setting which required more of imagination than research. However, I had to be mindful of designs and artefacts typical to Indians. Perhaps writing a novel in English which is my second language was the hardest part in creating The Lost Crown. On the contrary I am a day dreamer and I have spent days envisioning portions of the story. Yeah as if I was watching a movie! Hence putting it in words became easier.
I learnt it the hard that thinking and writing a manuscript is perhaps the easiest part of becoming a writer while publishing and marketing is the other darker half of it. Message to the readers: Join Ryan's quest and if you would like to read more of his adventures, your reviews will surely reach me.
