Carian Cole brings readers a new twist on arranged marriage with this heartfelt romance that's full of witty banter, tantalizing slow-burn chemistry, and two people finding love where they least expect it.

My best friend has a habit of trying to fix all my problems—whether I want her to or not. But when she approaches me with an application to join a marriage experiment, I think she's finally gone too far.

She's right, though—my heart (and other body parts)—have been woefully neglected during my three years of singlehood and endless bad dates. I love my cat, but at twenty-five years old, I'd like to settle down with a great guy and start a family.

After some serious soul-searching, I take the biggest leap of faith in my life and agree to marry a total stranger.

I asked for a stable, funny, smart, clean-cut, caring, family-oriented man. But when I get to the altar, I find a guy covered in tattoos with wild hair and a sexy, panty-melting grin waiting for me.

Talon Valentine. A rock star. A famous rock star.

I wanted to run. So did he.

But we stayed and said our vows, determined to commit to the experiment.

We fought. We laughed. We cried. We went from not being able to stand each other to not being able to keep our hands off each other. To our surprise, we fell in love.

But then tragedy struck, cracking our fragile foundation, leaving us wondering how this six-month marriage experiment would end.

Will one—or both of us—choose to get divorced, or will we finally get the happily ever after we both dreamed of?

* Talon can be read as a single stand-alone book.
