About the Author

Sundari Venkatraman is an Indie Author who has 60 books to her credit. These books have consistently featured in the Top 100 Bestseller Lists on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1 Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

These days, the author is independently publishing her novels in paperback format under her banner Flaming Sun, printed and distributed by Notion Press.

Even as a child, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome and she grew up on a steady diet of fairy tales, Phantom comics and Mandrake comics. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy ending after the protagonists surmounted all unexpected obstacles.

Once she entered her teens, Sundari switched her loyalties from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to local heroes and heroines. And of course, the joy of vanquishing the ubiquitous evil villains! Her imagination soared and she happily ensconced herself in a rosy romantic cocoon for many years.

Then came the writing—a true bolt from the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Double Jeopardy by Sundari Venkatraman

For a perennial romantic at heart, what can be a more appealing read than a love story Bollywood style by the Indian Mills & Boon Queen? To say that I was looking forward to reading Double Jeopardy by Sundari Venkatraman is an understatement. And it did not disappoint. An out-and-out romantic story of a girl caught between two guys, her childhood crush the serious, considerate and dependable Arth and the playful, prankster Ansh who keeps wooing her and vying for her attention.

We encourage you to buy books from a local bookstore. If that is not possible, please use the links on the page and support us. Thank you.

As Sanya tries to figure out what her heart desires the comfort and shelter of Arth or the passion and intrigue promised by Ansh, she also does a lot of “growing up”. Sundari has described very effectively the charters and their interrelationships. The character of Sanya begins as a spoilt brat and ends up as a responsible adult. The character development happens despite her being controlled by her heart’s desires.

Though I feel that the circumstances and the reasons of the choices that all these three characters make could have been described more, the suspense created by Sundari maintains the excitement till the end. Also, the interrelationship between these three main characters could have been explored more. Or maybe it is just me disappointed at the length of the book because I surely wanted more of Sanya, Arth and Ansh.

I easily could identify with the depth and growth in the development of Sanya. All in all an expected romance with and unexpected twist.
