It starts here: Book 1 of the passionate, emotional series being hailed by readers as "the best thing I've read since Gideon Cross and Crossfire" and "Like Pretty Woman only better", brings you the beginning of Cassian Court and Mishella Santelle's tumultuous love story...
The Isle of Arcadia is a kingdom sealed off from the modern world…until now. Slowly, Arcadia has opened its borders to outsiders from the western world—but in this brand-new spin-off series, a native Arcadian ventures beyond the safety of her world, trading six months of her life for the kingdom’s financial stability. Manhattan might as well be another planet to innocent Mishella—and her keeper, the beautiful but bewildering Cassian Court, just as terrifying a mystery. He connects to her soul, challenges her mind…and awakens her body in ways she’s never dreamed. But how does she keep him from taking—then breaking—her heart?
Book 1 of the Temptation Court series is Naughty Little Gift:
Make a wish…
Engineering genius. Billionaire icon. Consultant to kings. Golden-haired god. Cassian Court is a legend before he even steps foot on the remote island of Arcadia—but from the moment he locks eyes with Mishella Santelle, she can see only the man beneath the power, the presence, and the muscles…the bruised soul for whom hers has been destined…
But destiny isn’t a luxury for a woman of the Arcadian Court.
Close your eyes…
When six months of her life are bargained to Cassian in a multimillion dollar contract, Mishella must learn the rules of a more ruthless kingdom: New York City. In this glamorous jungle, paths are harder to discern, enemies are more cleverly camouflaged…and passions are impossible to ignore, especially when awakened by the man who can read her every desire with a glance, control her every arousal with a touch…
Helpless against how her body and soul react to this man, Mishella dreads her heart is soon to follow—for the ghosts from Cassian’s past will never free him to return her love. In six months, she’ll simply be a memory to him…the naughty little toy he played with for a while…
Unless she can prove the impossible.
That their love is worth fighting for.
Amazing as usual!!!
Cassian Court wanted Mishella Santelle so he made her a stipulation in a loan agreement with her parents. She's to spend six months in New York with him and then be allowed to return home, live and marry, or not, whom ever she chooses. He felt six months would be enough time to get her out of his system. He never counted on feeling so much. The past haunts him something fierce! Can he deal with it before she decides to leave him?
I do believe I would not have had to work so hard at understanding the Arcadians if I had read The Cimarron series before hand but it worked out and I caught on to their customs and behaviors. Listening to the way the Arcadians speak was like traveling far into the past. This Isle of Arcadia had sealed itself off from the modern world and has slowly opened it's borders to outsiders.
Great story! I'm never disappointed by anything written by this amazing author. I can't wait for Temptation Court, Book 2.
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I was not compensated for my review.
I was not required to write a positive review.
The opinion expressed in my own.
Angel Payne is becoming a must read author! My kindle starts smoking when I read one of her books. This is the first book into Cassian and Mishella's love story. It does not end on a cliffhanger so if you aren't into series, you can easily read just book one. If you are like me, the more the merrier. This book does have insta-love, some other women drama, no cheating and a HFN ending. ARC provided by NetGalley.
