The Honeymoon

The Honeymoon

(Penguin Petit)

Khushwant Singh
Select Preferred Format

Sonu got up and stood by my pillow. ‘I’m scared. Can I share your bed?’ she pleaded. I made room for her. She clung to me like a frightened child. Every time there was lightning and thunder she dug deeper into my embrace. I soothed her nerves by holding her close to me. We began to kiss; this time she opened her mouth to let me explore its depths.

When Mohan comes back from America, his father knows that it is now time for him to marry. The girl is from a good family, and as is tradition, they get very little time to get to know each other—but on this honeymoon, they discover each other in a deeply intimate way. Mohan wants to make sure his wife knows that he won’t hurt her—but her young, innocent sensuality makes it very hard to keep himself in check. Will Mohan find his way into his young bride’s . . . heart?

Khushwant Singh writes a thrilling, brazen story of first times in this traditionally sexy story.
