One young woman.
When she falls in love with two,
which brother will she choose?
Orphan Sakura, with no last name, is accustomed to being rejected, hated, bullied, and unloved. When she is adopted by the wealthy Princeton family, her seven brothers refuse to accept her, and her two sisters constantly bully her. Instead of admitting defeat, she gladly takes on her new life with a brave face, working hard to earn her new siblings’ trust and love. Her endeavor, however, ultimately leads to a series of unfortunate incidents.
Now years later, the twenty-three-year-old beauty dreads the moment she once again has to meet the drop-dead gorgeous brothers, due to arrive for their cousin’s wedding. Dodging their very presence is next to impossible since the brothers, who have forgotten who she is entirely, are attracted to her like moths to a flame and thwart her escapes at every turn. This, of course, leads to ungodly, tempting situations, awakens forbidden feelings, and ignites old flames that have been suppressed and laid dormant for many years. When she finds them competing for her—NOT for her sisterly affection, which she still deeply craves, but for her love as a woman—she is torn between Sebastian Princeton, the brother who loves her and watches over her from a distance, and Darcy Princeton, the brother who was once her best friend and now secretly yearns for her forgiveness and her love once again.
Hello, my awesome readers, and welcome.
Allow me to introduce myself. I am a writer (abet only a beginner and still learning heaps in this wonderful industry of authorship and book publishing). I love to write romance; be it contemporary (mainly multicultural), reverse harem, historical, historical urban fantasy, fantasy, paranormal, or a combination of any of these.
I love the insightful phrase of Mono No Aware, which means the pathos of things, a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. The flower Sakura, or cherry blossom, symbolizes this in Japan. It inspired me one day to write Falling For Sakura when I saw how beautiful cherry blossoms are in spring.
FALLING FOR SAKURA
Sayonara, my beautiful daughter. Mono no aware. You are like the sakura flower that blooms vibrantly in spring, just like this spring, so lovely and full of life and color. You are here in my life for only a short time, enchanting me with your innocent beauty and kind soul, and a brief moment later you are gone again, out of my life. Thus, I shall name you Sakura. I am sad, my darling daughter, to leave you behind. I am sad to never see you grow up, feel your love, or hear you call me “Okasama.” But I am not a worthy mother. Thus, sayonara, my beautiful Sakura.
