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 Oxford-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…

5 sexy, submissive Alpha male stars for ARRANGED!

Kash Kamdar is the king of Loa Mali, used to enjoying life and all it has to give…until his mother forces an arranged marriage on him. His betrothed is nothing like the party girls he's used to, but Dayita Samar has always been the one woman who's been able to get under his skin. Dayita knew years ago that Kash would need a firm hand and strict direction, and her Domme tendencies screamed in happiness. Many years away from each other convinced her that she'd need to come at it slowly and with tenderness, but if he was able to let go and submit, they could have an incredible sex life. But Kash sees his desire to submit as something wrong and perverted…will he ever be able to voice his true desires and live out his version of a perfect life with his queen?

ARRANGED is a novella in the Master and Mercenaries series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.

I've been looking forward to Kash's story since he's played prominently in many Masters and Mercenaries books, and ARRANGED didn't disappoint! I got the impression in other stories that Kash might be a switch, but he was a straight up sub! I don't read a ton of books featuring Dommes, but I love them when I can get them. Kash and Dayita were incredible together, and how she eased him into a D/s relationship was just delicious as hell. The feel of the book was exotic and sultry, and I adored every second of it (like so many books in the Masters and Mercenaries series). Can't wait for the next stroke of brilliance from Lexi Blake!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; BDSM/kink (D/s, spanking, ); no sexual assault; mild violence and murder.
