Introducing Zaheera Walker and Her New Novel - Desecrated

Today, I want to welcome fellow South African writer, Zaheera Walker, who is spotlighting her new women's fiction novel, Desecrated. This book is packed with raw emotion! It also highlights the horrors of violence against woman. I had the privilege of being the editor for this amazing work. Note: it is 18+ and tread carefully if you are a sensitive reader.


Rosina Khan has scars on her heart – a secret from her past. Risking everything she makes a run for her life – fleeing Johannesburg for Durban. Welsh-born cardiologist Dylan Evans is in town for two reasons, to care for a patient and to heal his broken heart. Dinner is on his mind and he needs a date – nothing more. Just one fleeting moment under the moonlight is enough for Rosina to fall chin-first for his propriety and charm. Dylan can’t stop thinking about her once home in the UK and takes a chance at love again. They meet up for a getaway in Cape Town. Their flirtatious game of pretend comes to an end. This is real! They were destined to be together by the Fates but one thing stands in the path of their happiness – Tradition. The family Rosina ran from insists she marry her own kind. They desecrated her past and now they intend on destroying her future too. Rosina is in conflict - be a good daughter or stay true to her own heart. It took a heart whisperer to heal her heart from all the trauma; the choice should be easy. The problem with life is the path to happiness is rarely obstacle-free.

Short Excerpt:

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, that
makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts
and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give
you forever.”

Then, I fold the paper and tuck it into my pocket.

This is it. The moment I waited for since forever.

“Rosina, meeting you was no mistake. You remind me of
an unexpected blossom in the cesspit of life, a tough yet
tender flower. I did not know what it was like to feel love
until I met you. You have made my eyes smile since that
evening under the moonlight. You have enchanted me,
you have challenged me without knowing it and you have
made me believe in love again. You have showed me that
the gentleness of a woman still exists. My heart skips a
beat whenever you are near. You are my forever friend,
my confidant and a big part of my life. You are the
woman to my man. My Cinderella. With every part of
me, I will love and cherish you. I will protect you and
with my flesh I will honour you. I will support and
encourage you to be all that you can and want to be. I am
so proud to take this journey of love with you.”
