BlogPost: Introducing Priya, Heroine of Hot in the City
Dr. Priya Shah just wants a full night’s sleep, a good cup of coffee, and to protect her cousin Sara from whatever trouble she’s gotten mixed up in this time. She doesn’t have the time or mental space to deal with a man, especially not dangerously sexy cop, Brian MacGregor.
Priya’s guarded and more than a little prickly—at one point Brian thinks, “he hadn’t even begun to peel her onion.” But at her heart lies a deep well of guilt over an incident from her past intertwined with a fierce love for her family. To keep that love, she’s tried to be someone she isn’t. Someone perfect. But being near Brian makes her want to detonate that good girl façade and set her inner wildness free.
After thirty-six hours on call, the last thing Priya Shah needed was to fulfill some dude’s exotic Kama Sutra fantasy. She was more than capable of getting herself off, and bonus: afterwards, she wouldn’t have to kick out some random.
So when she saw a male denim-clad thigh slide onto the neighboring barstool, she jammed a fry in her mouth and kept her eyes fixed on her book. At four o’clock in the afternoon, the Thorny Rose had plenty of empty barstools. No reason for him to sit right next to her unless he was one of those guys for whom a single woman out in public was like waving red in front of a bull. And at this moment, she just wanted her cousin to show up so she could go home for at least twelve hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Sara should have been here a half hour ago, when her shift started. She had until Priya hit the bottom of her basket of fries to show up. After that, Priya was taking her crabby self off to bed and silencing her phone. Whatever Sara desperately needed to talk to her about would just have to wait.
“Hi,” her new neighbor said.
She flipped a page. “Not interested.”
“It’s Dr. Shah, right?” His voice was deep and warm.
She looked up and into a pair of familiar green eyes. The hot ginger cop. Was here. She dropped her book on the bar.
