Title: Claimed by the Native
Rosie, unable to deal with the fallout from a failed engagement, decides to backpack through India with the misguided notion of “finding herself”. She has spanned the country, visited temples and explored the culture—all without finding anything but the realization her problems have come abroad with her.
Then, as her southward journey brings her to Kerala, Rosie meets a local farmer, a man who barely speaks English but who manages to reignite a zest for life within her. She is instantly attracted to him, for not only is he exquisitely gorgeous, he is also mysterious. When he invites her to his modest home in the rural outskirts of town for the sole purpose of sex, Rosie knows agreeing would be foolish and dangerous. All the guidebooks warn about such stupidity and yet she is powerless to resist.
Soon Rosie finds what she came to India for—liberation from her sadness and a little adventure.

This beautiful and brief union of Rosie and Navin is exactly what I’d call erotic. Two complete strangers who are lonely – both looking for an escape from their lives. They intrigue one another on a desirable level of curiosity and need from the moment they lay eyes on one another. Once they’ve gotten past the formalities of introduction, there’s the hesitation that builds the sexual tension between the two of them, which leads to the sweetly awkward yet epic love making. From start to finish, Rosie and Navin were destined to find one another – their short lived romance filling the all too familiar void of loneliness and giving them the passion and zest they need to carry on for another day.
