The Booknerds Hangout 32.0 in collaboration with Penguin India at Y CafÃ© kickstarted with Founder Rohan Raj and Co-founder Neha Raj welcoming the attendees and giving a brief introduction of The Booknerds and the Literary initiatives that the community has indulged in over the last year.
Founder Rohan Raj welcomed Author Bhaavna Arora who has authored three books with Penguin India. Bhaavna Arora is the bestselling author of the Deliberate Sinner and Mistress of Honour. Before her foray into writing, she was heading a business school as a director; she also trains students and professionals on leadership. She holds two management degrees and a Ph.D. in Leadership from Pittsford University.
A fourth-generation army kid, Bhaavna is a true patriot. She enjoys reading, travelling, swimming, horse riding and playing sports and has a fancy for big bikes and cars.
Bhaavnaâ€™s latest novel is Love Bi the Way which takes the sensitive issue of bisexuality head on.
Rihana is a painter who is trying to find inspiration in love. Zara is a businesswoman trying to make a niche for her company in a male-dominated world. Rihana is fire, Zara is ice; Rihana is openly sensual, while Zara is more cautious with her heartâ€”they are opposites that attract. They are different people bound together by their houseâ€”â€˜Cupidâ€™â€”and their pet golden retriever, Tiger.
As both of them navigate their fulfilling careers and try to leave behind troubled pasts, they find solace in each other. But Tigerâ€™s not the only male in their lives. Rihana finds herself a string of sexy men, while Zara emerges out of her shell and meets an actual prince who sweeps her off her feet. But can these relationships last? And what road will they take when love happens bi the way?
