Readers everywhere have already fallen in love with the Cimarrons of the Isle of Arcadia: a country sealed off from the modern world...until now.
Slowly, Arcadia has opened its borders to outsiders from the western world--but in this brand-new spin-off s?eries?, a native Arcadian ventures beyond the safety of her world, trading six months of her life for the kingdom's financial stability.
Manhattan might as well be another planet to innocent Mishella--and her keeper, the beautiful but bewildering Cassian Court, just as terrifying a mystery. He connects to her soul, challenges her mind...and awakens her body in ways she's never dreamed. But how does she keep him from taking--then breaking--her heart?? ?
?Book 1 of the Temptatio?n Court series is Naughty Little Gift?:
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...
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.

This is the first book in a spin off series from Angel Payne’s hugely successful, The Cimarron Series. Hailing from the Isle of Arcadia, a kingdom steeped in traditions, sealed off from the modern world. Change is coming to Arcadia and with it are the opportunities for many Arcadians if they dare to spread their wings and venture out into the world. After six months of her life is bargained in a multi-million dollar contract with Cassian by her father, Mishella (Ella) Santelle’s life is turned upside down and she is stepping out of her comfort zone with a great deal of trepidation and into the world of Cassian Court. Cassian is an engineering genius who happens to be a billionaire one who has fallen for Mishella. The lust and attraction sizzling between them is obviously mutual, but Mishella is scared to act on her feelings and fights her attraction. They have six months to explore their feelings and the passion is hard to ignore Is Mishella the one to bring Cassian back to life? Will she be brave enough to face the demons and ghosts that are haunting Cassian? Will Cassian be prepared to re-open himself up to the light that Ella brings to his life? I fell in love as well as lust with Cassian Court, a true alpha, a take no prisoners’ male. I was so anxious to read that I read this book almost straight through. I couldn’t (and wouldn’t) put it down. I was so invested in Cassian and Ella getting their happily ever after that I just kept saying, just one more chapter. Naughty Little Gift has it all, hot, spicy romance, deep abiding love, vulnerability, intrigue, conspiracy and action. I did feel that the ending was a tad rushed but knowing that their story continues soon, I will happily await the next instalment. I really loved Naughty Little Gift and cannot wait to read more in the series. Well done, Ms. Payne, you have another winner on your hands.
Steamy start to a new series. Cassion is a billionaire and is given Mishella for six months in a multimillion dollar contract. Growing up on the island of Arcadia she now must navigate in the fast paced and sometimes cruel world that is New York City. Will Cassion be able to move forward from his past or let Mishella go after six months. Cassion is a great character, alpha but broken by his past. Mishella is so strong. A great read, looking forward to more.
This is a unique book unlike anything I have read before. It instantly got my attention and kept it through the whole story. Cassian is a consultant from New York who traveled to Arcadia, which has been sheltered from the modern world. Mishella is a girl with her own mind who is held back by her parents who want to control her (all the money) on Arcadia. Their situation is intriguing because it is not like the typical love story. Cassian makes a surprising offer to get Mishella away from her controlling parents and into his bed. It is interesting to see how Mishella adapts to New York City and her stay with Cassian. I would have liked to know more of the back story on Cassian and his secrets, which I feel were a little glossed over but I suspect we will learn more in the next book. Overall my only complaint… it ended far too soon! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book!
Cassian Court wanted Mishella Santelle so he made her a stipulation in a loan agreement with her parents. She's to spend six months in New York with him and then be allowed to return home, live and marry, or not, whom ever she chooses. He felt six months would be enough time to get her out of his system. He never counted on feeling so much. The past haunts him something fierce! Can he deal with it before she decides to leave him? I do believe I would not have had to work so hard at understanding the Arcadians if I had read The Cimarron series before hand but it worked out and I caught on to their customs and behaviors. Listening to the way the Arcadians speak was like traveling far into the past. This Isle of Arcadia had sealed itself off from the modern world and has slowly opened it's borders to outsiders. Great story! I'm never disappointed by anything written by this amazing author. I can't wait for Temptation Court, Book 2. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed in my own.
Passionate and sexy 4.5 stars Naughty Little Gift is the first book in the Temptation Court series, a spin off of the Cimmaron series. Angel Payne is a new author to me and I’ve heard much about her work. This story is the first book I’ve read from Ms. Payne and Naughty Little Gift did not disappoint. This story has one hot, alpha male, and billionaire extraordinaire, Cassian Court. He’s accustomed to getting what he wants, and who he wants is Mishella Santelle. My heart went out to Mishella, and her family’s archaic customs which has forced her to deny everything for herself to please her parents. I loved this well written, sexy story of two people with such different lives, past hurts, and discover more of who they are together. Can’t wait for the next book. Nicely done, Ms. Payne. Copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review.
Cassian and Mishella's story takes us back to Arcadia and then to New York and oh my what a ride! Angel Payne has done it again! Loved this book!
You dont want to miss this addition to Angel's AMAZING Arcadian world. I LOVE the Cimarrons. Although this mostly takes place in New York, we still get a look at what is happening in Arcadia. I was soooo excited when I found out Mishella was getting her own stories. You wont be disappointed with this one!!!
