 ...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

"Snyder's prose is intelligent and deft. Her plot's challenging, her characters complex. Spice and Smoke isn't your typical love -- and it's all the better because of it." --Debra Hyde, Story of L

"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 

"Spice and Secrets is a fantastic followup to Spice and Smoke, but it works well on its own, too. Secrets is tighter, less sprawling and disorienting, but the canvas is still incredibly broad. This is the kind of book you will either find impossible to read, or love." -- Violetta Vane, Violetta's MC/IR Bookspot

"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

"This book is a wonderful Beauty and the Beast story." - Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author

 ...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
