Publisher's Summary

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....

You won't want to miss this one!

I have been looking forward to Kash's story ever since we first met him way back when. I was not disappointed. Kash is an interesting King. He is very human. In other words, he has issues just like everyone else in this amazing world of Masters and Mercenaries does. He just happens to be royalty, like that would make any difference to anyone at Sanctum, or Mckay/Taggart. He is just one of the guys. It just added more issues. I loved learning about Kash's country and some of their customs. Not to mention more of his story. Like the love of his life. That was so fun. You won't want to miss this one. Narration. Ryan West is fabulous! Not only does he have a voice to td die for, but he has a thousand and one voices. I had no problem figuring out who was speaking. It was that good. I will have to find more books narrated by him. He is good!

Good

This was a really good book. This was book 13.5 in the "Masters and Mercenaries" series. We met the King of Loa Mali Kashmir "Kash" Kamdar a few books back he is the playboy king a manwhore. When his mother Queen Yasmine decides that its time for him to slow down and get married she pick a bride for him Dayita "Day" Samar. Day and Kash went to school together and they spent a lot of time together and on the day that he found out that his father and brother died she kissed him 15 years later he finds that his mother has picked her for his bride the one that got away. Day gave up her dream of being a doctor when her mother got sick and she had to return to the island to take care of her. Day is a strong independent woman who also had a secret turns out Day is a domme and his mother knew it. On there wedding day one of Kash's ex's shows up and tries to get him to leave Day and when he tells her no she tells him about Day whipping and tying up men and Kash doesn't know how to handle it. When someone kills one of the servant's the guys from McKay and Taggart Simon and Jesse take Kash and Day to Dallas and Santcum where people know who Day is and have seen her work. Kash had a hard time submitting to a woman because he always felt that the man had to be strong I wanted to slap him. Ian was his same old self but he was trying to help Kash who thought he was a Dom. This was a really good book it was well written like all of the books in this series. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Loved this one

Kash and Dayita’s story was so engaging and lovable. I have either listened to or read every book in the Masters and Mercenaries series. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this one. But I adored the twists and turns. I think the resolution of the conflicts in this story were believable and just downright great! A must read/listen if you have read/listened to other books in the series and a must read/listen even if you haven’t.

Finally!

Finally, a female dominant. I hope the other authors in this genre also consider doing this. They are so rare.

Very sexy & humorous romantic tale

I smiled & chuckled throughout this story. It’s not your normal Royalty story. There was a lot of depth & learning in these characters. There was also lots of mystery. A very good listen.

Kash really is King

Would you listen to Arranged again? Why?

I would totally listen to Arranged again. There is something about Ryan West bringing Lexi Blake's words to life that is almost magical.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that we finally got to see behind Kash's party boy facade.

Which scene was your favorite?

No this is hard because my favorite scene would totally give away the story. Let'/s just say the Lexi Blake has a way with action and suspense that makes me come back for more.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sometimes it's good to be King but better to be the Queen.

Tried to finish...just couldn’t

I usually love Lexi Blake as well as the 1001 novellas. I tried many times to give this a listen, but my thoughts drifted, or I fell asleep; the story just never grabbed me the way the others do. Narration is excellent, and I’m sure the story probably picks up, but I can’t seem to find the oomph to get past the third hour.

Wow !!!

Lexi Blake is my go to author when I need action, humour, romance. I loved this book and all her master and mercenaries collection. This book was a bit different in a good way as we were introduced to more characters. Thank you.

Loved it!!

Kash is enigmatic, charming, mischevious, very naughty and so wonderfully entertaining. His threats are creative, descriptive, unusual and are declared with such pomp and command that you have no option but to smile. Day is strong, loyal, intelligent and full of surprises. She is perfect for him but the usual battles of preconceived roles for men and women create bumps in the road for them both. The interference from Mummy dearest is great! She is a game old bird who has her own tricks up her sleeves! As usual the Taggart family are fantastic! Who wouldn't want them st your back!! A great story, full of brilliant characters, fabulous interplay, well worth your time and effort!!
