It was supposed to be a simple arrangement…
When Valerie’s designated match from the Arkadia Brides Agency offers her a deal that involves a quick marriage and divorce, she can’t believe her good luck. She can realize her dream of opening a tea shop, and without a pesky husband around she can send for her beloved sisters to join her. But as soon as she meets the blue-eyed giant who wants her to pretend to be in love with him, she is instantly, annoyingly attracted to him.
Atlas lives a quiet life of leisure. His only problem is a caveat in his grandfather’s will that means he will lose the family estate if he isn’t married by the age of thirty. So, he offers his match an arrangement - he gets his inheritance, and she gets a cut of the money to open her tea shop. Nobody falls in love, and nobody gets hurt. He just doesn’t expect his pretend bride to trigger an inescapable hurricane of lust and longing in him.
When a rival family member shows up and starts questioning their relationship, Valerie and Atlas suddenly find themselves a whole lot closer than they planned.
They’re convinced they’re putting on a show to fool everyone else, but it seems more and more like the only people they are fooling are themselves.
If you like strong women, hunky aliens, wild adventures, steamy sensual scenes, and happily-ever-afters, then you’ll love the world of Arkadia:
Arkadian Alien Mail Order Brides:
Atlas ( Arkadian Alien Mail Order Brides #2 ) by Tasha Black
Another great book about the Arcadian brides , this is Atlas and Valerie’s story . The two had made a pact to marry just long enough to get what each wanted . But they hadn’t counted on Love ! A great book and the second in the brides series . Can’t wait for book three .
Loved this second book! It was a quick read, and very fun. Can’t wait for Summer’s story with Titan!
A Marriage of Convenience or More ?
Words to describe this book -- serious, fun, inspiring, kindness, edgy and the urge to choke someone. This is a fun book to read but one that prompts you to ponder and think more deeply. I always look forward to the many books of Tasha Black.
