With STAR-TOUCHED STORIES (Wednesday Books; August 7, 2018), Chokshi adds to the Star-Touched world in three short stories, re-visiting some fan favorite characters. Exploring what happens after the happily ever after in Chokshi’s Star-Touched novels, her short stories are the perfect read for a taste of beautiful writing with delicious plots.
Death and Night
He was Lord of Death, cursed never to love. She was Night incarnate, destined to stay alone. After a chance meeting, they wonder if, perhaps, they could be meant for more. But danger crouches in their paths, and the choices they make will set them on a journey that will span lifetimes.
Poison and Gold
Now that her wish for a choice has come true, Aasha struggles to control her powers. But when an opportunity to help Gauri and Vikram’s new reign presents itself, she will have to battle her insecurities and maybe, along the way, find love.
Rose and Sword
There is a tale whispered in the dark of the Empire of Bharat-Jain. A tale of a bride who loses her bridegroom on the eve of her wedding. But is it a tale or a truth?
As the excitement builds for Chokshi’s next series THE GILDED WOLVES (February 2019), this collection will satisfy the cravings for her gorgeous prose and fans can catch up with their favorite characters. Even if dipping into the Star-Touched universe for the first time, STAR-TOUCHED STORIES will draw you in and leaving for more.

Review of Star-Touched Stories
Review (5 Stars): I loved Star-Touched Queen and Star-Touched Stories was an amazing continuation of this world and we got to visit some of the characters that we had grown to love. Each story was entertaining and well-written so you could get lost in each of these beautiful stories. Ms. Chokshi is an amazing writer and I think my favorite story was Death and Night. I can’t wait to get my hands on The Gilded Wolves which is out some time next year.
