Kash Kamdar is the king of a peaceful but powerful island nation. As Loa Mali’s sovereign, he is always in control, the final authority. Until his mother uses an ancient law to force her son into marriage. His prospective queen is a buttoned-up intellectual, nothing like Kash’s usual party girl. Still, from the moment of their forced engagement, he can’t stop thinking about her.

Dayita Samar comes from one of Loa Mali’s most respected families. The Cambridge-educated scientist has dedicated her life to her country’s future. But under her staid and calm exterior, Day hides a few sexy secrets of her own. She is willing to marry her king, but also agrees that they can circumvent the law. Just because they’re married doesn’t mean they have to change their lives. It certainly doesn’t mean they have to fall in love.

After one wild weekend in Dallas, Kash discovers his bride-to-be is more than she seems. Engulfed in a changing world, Kash finds exciting new possibilities for himself. Could Day help him find respite from the crushing responsibility he’s carried all his life? This fairy tale could have a happy ending, if only they can escape Kash’s past…

MY REVIEW

I got a taste for Lexi Blake's writing with For His Eyes Only and couldn't pass up the opportunity to read from her again. ARRANGED was an absolute pleasure to devour. It's about the arranged marriage between Loa Mali's King Kash and his one-time sweetheart, Day. For the past five years Kash has been living the life of an infamous playboy. Paparazzi, threesomes, hookers, and sex tapes were his new norm. Until his sovereignty was threatened and he was forced to wed the straight-laced Day. He soon discovered that his new wife was much more than she seemed.

I really liked the way the BDSM world was worked into this story. I especially appreciated how the author explained and illustrated that being a submissive wasn't a form of weakness and that there weren't set gender rules for it. I think it was handled with care and I love the sweet twist it gave to this story. The plot and the characters were interesting and entertaining and I would recommend this read to anyone who enjoys some suspense with their erotica.
