***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
*Due to the explicit content, this book is not suitable to those under the age of 18*This is an interesting take on the old customs of arranged marriages. The rich keep their family steep in old money by signing their young to wed at birth. The girls are groomed to be ladies and thusly they are ELITE.

Francesca had no choice she was promised to a man she never met until two weeks before her wedding. She didn’t think she wanted it but when she met him his charm and good looks changed her mind. It wouldnt be so bad right? Or would it!! The new “experiences” she has with him are thrilling but when they become something more she becomes…. Sigh… You will have to read.

The book is well written and leads you to believe that there will be more surprises in the future installments! I can’t wait to read more from this debut author!!

I tip my Nerd Girl Hat to you for the first time Madeline Black!! I hope that it wont be my last and that you wont be leaving me hanging for to long!!!
