“What are the other meanings for shucks?” she asked.
“It has many definitions. It can be a husk on the outer layer of corn. Or it can mean worthless.” She gave him a questioning look so he offered an example, dropping his voice slightly. “Like I don’t give a shucks about what we do as long as we do it together.” Her face flushed slightly, her smile turning suggestive. Encouraged, he dropped his voice a few octaves more. Test the water, Dorsey, but don’t fucking dive in! “Or it could mean to discard.”
“As in peel off. For example, she shucked off her black T-shirt in a hurry.” His feet dipped into the complicated waters he’d avoided, waters that could heat up to boiling point if they kept creeping down this dangerous path.
“I see. So if I said, do you mind if we don’t shuck tonight, that would be a proper use?”
Nick opened his mouth to respond, to try to eat up the words already spilling out into the atmosphere, but she held up her hand, and her lips parted slightly. “But I hope we do shuck one day.”
When a man loves a woman
Recovering addict Nick Dorsey finds solace in his regimented life. That is until he meets Shyla Metha. Something about the shy Indian beauty who delivers take-out to his Greenwich Village loft inspires the reclusive writer. And when Shyla reveals her desire to write a book of her own, he agrees to help her. The tale of a young Indian girl growing up against a landscape of brutal choices isn’t Nick’s usual territory, but something about the story, and the beautiful storyteller, draws him in deep.
Shyla is drawn to Nick, but she never imagines falling for him. Like Nick, Shyla hails from a village, too…a rural village in India. They have nothing in common, yet he makes her feel alive for the first time in her life. She is not ready for their journey to end, but the plans she’s made cannot be broken…not even by him. Can they find a way to rewrite the next chapter?
5***** ENJOYABLE READ
** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. **
Reading Unwanted Girl’s blurb, I guessed this story wouldn’t be as light as other romance novels I have read recently. I was prepared for tough subjects. I wasn’t ready though for the depth of the feelings I experienced. I avoid spoilers when writing reviews because I don’t’ like reading them when I’m choosing a new book so I won’t give you any. However, I can comfortably say to any potential reader – PICK THIS BOOK right now. You will thank me.
Not only is it an enjoyable romance with steamy scenes but also a powerful story with a few twists and refreshing ideas for this genre, namely the story within the story bit. I particularly appreciated the way M K Schiller fleshed out the characters and built the plots both in the ‘real’ world of Unwanted Girl and in the ‘fictitious’ world of The Choice Less.
Lastly, even though I predicted correctly right from the start what the ‘big reveal’ in the end would be that didn’t make me enjoy it any less. Unwanted Girls was the first book by M K Schiller I read and certainly won’t be the last. Kudos!

I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, reading or writing, usually with some tasty Italian…the food that is!
I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. You’ve heard of fan fiction… this was friend fiction.
I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor.
