"You may kiss the bride." 

With five little words, Mikolas Petrides secures a vital business merger and finally repays his grandfather for rescuing him from the horrors of his childhood. But when he lifts his new bride's veil, it's not the woman he was expecting! 

Viveka Brice will do anything to protect her little sister, even pretend to marry a stranger. Her deception revealed, she flees the wedding, but is soon confronted by Mikolas. He is a man who always gets what he wants, and if the marriage is off, Viveka will have to compensate him—by becoming his mistress instead!

About the Author

When Canadian Dani Collins found romance novels in high school she immediately wondered how one trained for such an awesome job. She began writing, trying various genres, but always came back to her first love, Harlequin Presents. Often distracted by family and "real" jobs, she continued writing, inspired by the romance message that if you hang in there you'll reach a happy ending. In May of 2012, Harlequin offered to buy her manuscript in a two-book deal. She is living happily ever after.

The marriage ruse? Tick. Pretend affair? Tick. Real feelings? Tick. Starting with a wedding that got nullified the moments vows were said, Mikolas and Viveka are tied in a tie and they must stick together! I must say that I sort of like stories wherein the characters are flawed or else every author goes he or she was perfection itself which just gets too unreal. This was not the case here as Mikolas has a physical defect which is prominent as well. He has risen above it however. For Viveka, I absolutely loved her sense of loyalty. That is something I see myself doing and it makes me feel closer to her and understand her in a new way. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

I was hooked from page one on this exciting twist on an arranged marriage plot! Mikolas Petrides thinks he’s sealing a business merger when he says “I do” … until he lifts the veil to kiss his bride and finds a stranger! Viveka Brice will stop at nothing to get her younger sister away from her wicked stepfather’s dealings. He forced her into an arranged marriage to further his business holdings, but Vivi helps her sneak away to be with her true love. Once the cat is out of the bag, Vivi tries to flee, but is caught in an altercation with her stepfather. Mikolas steps in and protects her and whisks her away with him. She ruined his business deal, the least she can do is become his mistress … right?
