Three years ago Jai let the only woman he ever loved walk out of his life, but Aria is back now. And she’s in danger. This time, Jai will do anything, even break his vow to protect his city, to keep her safe.
A second chance paranormal romance featuring shifters, set in a near-future where successive economic downturns in the West have resulted in refugees seeking shelter in the East.
A standalone story in the Many Lives series.

Background:
In what was once India, Bombay is the capital of the newly formed Indostan. It is also one of the most prosperous cities in the world. On the other hand, successive economic downturns have stripped most Western cities including London of its wealth. A plutocratic government in Britain has pushed many to seek a new life in the East. Refugees from London now pour into Bombay, into the camp nicknamed the Jungle. And no one is safe from the growing menace of the merciless human-wolf hybrids.

It was the power of an ancient sword and the mistake of one warrior woman that brought the world to its knees under the power of a terrible Tsunami. Today, what is left of the world struggles to rebuild and Bombay has become one of it’s the most prosperous cities. It is now up to one young woman, a refugee, to steal the sword from its current master or face the death of her young sister.
In a world now filled with more than power hungry human monsters, humanity must face the threat of shifters and Jai knows the sword will mean the difference between survival and death for his people, but he hates the memories it holds.

As Ariana devises a way to get the sword from Jai, she discovers there is more to the powerful man than meets the eye, but even the most carefully thought out plans can go awry and when Ariana is kidnapped and brutalized by the shifters, Jai knows he must save the feisty and beautiful woman he is falling for, but in his world, Ariana would never be safe. Many years and thousands of miles will separate them until once again, Fate will intercede and bring them together, but once again, the sword could tear them apart. Is history about to repeat itself?

Laxmi Hariharan’s TAKEN adds even more color and definition to her Many Lives books in the dystopian, post-apocalyptic world she has created. Filled with grit, the powers of love, betrayal, jealousy and political machinations in this dark and frightening world come alive as good versus evil continues to battle for dominance. Will the past also rise up like a ghost in the night? Will the shifters continue to devour, rape and torture humanity? High tensions rule in this amazing tale on each and every page and Laxmi Hariharan pulls out all of the stops to create edge of your seat reading as the pages disappear and you become part of the chaos.
