Naughty Little Gift Cover


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…

And leap…

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.


Mishella Santelle may be considered to be a very lucky young woman – to some she has a dream job.  Cassian Court is a businessman who gets sidetracked from his agenda.  And that sidetrack changes his business as well.  Mishella is a young woman who is sheltered from the outside world.  Cassian is a worldly alpha male who is used to getting what he wants.

Mishella lives in a world that you can read about in this author’s Cimarron Saga.  There are characters that were in her story Into His Command.  I’m not saying you have to read that book first but if you want to know more about Brooke Valen and Samsyn Cimarron, then you just might.  You will also get a better understanding of where Mishella comes from.

Mishella is like a fish out of water when she enters Cassian’s world.  This was one thing I loved about this story.  The author shows how someone from another country can have trouble with the American language – terms that you or I take for granted.  The author doesn’t rush their relationship.  And you will know this to be true when you see that their story continues in Pretty Perfect Toy.  In this first book, we see how smitten Cassian is with Mishella.  But he also has secrets.  The ending gets you ready for August 23 when Pretty Perfect Toy comes out.  If you want to find out if they make it or not, you’ll just have to continue the Temptation Court Series.





Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.

A bit about me...

I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.
These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
