..for Seared:

"Not only is the drama behind Lachlan and Naya’s separation compelling, but their connection is stunning." -- Kristen Donnelly, All About Romance

"Hotter and more playful than her Bollywood romances, this book walks right up to the comfort line, stops long enough to wink at you, then sashays boldly forward into WTF territory." -- Olivia Waite, The Seattle Review of Books 

"Seared is scorching hot and wicked good fun. The chemistry between Naya and Lachlan is off-the-charts. It's the kinky romance I've been waiting for. If you can stand the heat, buy this book right now!" --Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of the Original Sinners series

 ...for the Bollywood Confidential series:

"Read Spice and Smoke for a culture change and wonder if it could be happening in a film set near you..." -- Fresh Fiction

"Bollywood + angst + humor + HEA + great writing = I want MORE." -- Kelly, Insta-Love

"The dialogue feels real. So do the characters who have flaws and/or vulnerabilities...I also loved the moviemaking milieu and the fact that Spice and Smoke dared to be different." -- Janine, Dear Author

"An evocative fairy tale full of deep passion, dark secrets and redemptive love ... the emotions that fill every page of [Bollywood and the Beast] are very real and deeply moving." - Bridget Keown, RT Book Reviews

"Bollywood is the perfect setting for a romance with its glamour and emphasis on appearances, as demonstrated by Suleikha Snyder's Bollywood and the Beast...the whole story takes on a magical feel, one that allows anything to happen." -- Julia Broadbooks, Heroes and Heartbreakers

"As you may have guessed from the title, Bollywood and the Beast is a Beauty and the Beast story set in Bollywood-but it's so much more than that. It's a book about a bi-racial heroine not feeling accepted by any cultural identity, and it has a delicious May/December m/m romance on the side. It's all the things, you guys." - A-,  Elyse, Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

 ...for anthologies and stand-alone novellas:

"[Heart Murmurs is] a smart & seductive, feel-good short story!" -- Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author

"Opening Act probably has the most stubborn hero I have read in a long time; he's also probably the sweetest. The world that Snyder created for her lovers is filled with laugh out loud humor and poignant emotional connections...Opening Act is a funny, sexy read until the curtain closes." - Nicole Leapheart, Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Possibly my favorite tale in [The Big Book of Orgasms] was 'Matinee' by Suleikha Snyder. Rarely have I read such vivid evocation of youthful lust." -- Lisabeth Sarai, Erotica Revealed

"A Taste of Blessings [in Silver Belles] has hot romantic tension going on in the midst of a religious Hindu festival. I loved this story for all the cultural details woven seamlessly into the fabric of the Indian Bengali American society in the Midwest." A-, Desert Isle Keeper review, Keira Soleore, All About Romance
