Theme Day: Arranged Marriage

Can you imagine meeting your husband on the day of your wedding or attached to someone else and finding out you have been given to another or it can be a necessity to get what you truly want, never the less, marriage can be a tricky thing. Sometimes they flourish and sometimes there is a twist that leads to a new path....

The Other Boleyn GirlWorth Any Price (Bow Street Runners, #3)Charming the Prince (Fairy Tales, #1)Nothing Personal

The Mating (Law of the Lycans, #1)The Mating by Nicky Charles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For the good of the pack, Elise has been told she will be mated with an Alpha from another territory. Gone are the dreams of remaining by her best friend, the man she had hoped to spend eternity with. Presented in front of Alpha Kane she must do what is expected from her. Within twenty four hours her life has changed, she is mated and relocated to the new pack.

Finding her way though is an uphill battle when loyalties are questioned, despite her growing feelings for Kane, will he trust her enough as his mate to believe in her.

This was a fascinating read, loved every morsel of it. From the very beginning it is startling as Elise's life is being ripped apart but she endures and has a strength that would challenge even the best heroines in books. Kane is a complex character, as the story unfolds you begin to realize what his hopes are from Elise, but he is vulnerable when it comes to her as well. Would reread this one in a heartbeat.

  1. My Mom's parents had an arranged marriage but they knew each other prior to the marriage. It was a small Italian village, if it was not arranged, it was most definitely pushed.

    Sometimes in the back of mind, I think it might be better.
