Sold to the highest bidder…

For the past fourteen years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort. 

But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.

Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess—he has to marry her!

It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him. 

Cash is gonna need all his skills—and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team—in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves. 

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

An excellent addition to the HOT family!

This book was exactly what I’ve come to expect with the HOT series...and those expectations are pretty high! Cash and Ella are the perfect counterparts to each other, and it was thoroughly enjoyable to read their story and see them really coming into their element and finding their way in uncertain territory. The story brought all of the elements I look for in the series; intrigue, emotion, the resistant Hero, and a Happily Ever After! I’ve been waiting for Cash’s story for a few years, and Mrs Harris did NOT disappoint! A quick, fun, read that will leave you hungry for the next installment in the HOT series!

A definite must read

Remember the old adage, you reap what you sow? Well, Cash was reaping what he had bestowed upon his teammates with significant others. I laughed so hard at some of the comments from his teammates and the attitudes they gave him.

His Princess tied him up in knots and he didn't know what to do about it. He needed to keep his distance, but how could he. She kept drawing him back in. And she was the young, innocent one. She had no idea what she was doing to him.

I think the best part in the book was when Cash and Ella were discussing sex and she told him she knew all about sex because she watched porn. Seriously, how does anyone react to that?

A definite must read. Another homerun from Ms. Harris. I can't wait for her next book.

This book was oh-so-dramatic and had plenty of oh-so-sexy! In this modern take on the Cinderella fairy tale, Ella has been treated cruelly for many years and just when she thinks her life couldn’t get any worse she’s forced to flee from an arranged marriage brokered by her evil aunt and uncle. In this version the Prince comes flying down the road in a souped up Mustang, just in time to save her from being dragged back into exile. This is definitely the hottest HOT book Lynn Raye Harris has ever written and the sizzling attraction between Cash and Ella almost short circuited my brand new Kindle 10. Action packed drama, palace intrigue and references to porn films had me fanning my face but what made me melt was the transformation of our hero SEAL, Cash. Who says fairy tales don’t come true? I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary and unsolicited review are completely my own.
