Pre-Order Now


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…

And leap…
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.

Beth’s Review

Naughty Little Gift is a spin-off of Angel Payne’s Cimarron series and is scheduled for release on August 16,2016. While you need not have read the Cimarron books to enjoy Naughty Little Gift why miss out on some amazing characters and scintillating story-lines. You will also get some additional background by reading them first. With that said,hang on for a leap of faith, and love. Cassian Court is a man that knows what he wants, and from the moment that he see Mishella Santelle, he knows he must have her. Just to be able to be around her, he will use
everything in his power. Mishella has been prepped for a life that isn’t her own. With parents that will use her
any way necessary to further themselves. When an offer is made that is a win-win for everyone, will Mishella
have the guts to sign her name? She knows that she wants more out of life, and with Cassian she can finally
have anything her heart desires. Little does Cassian know that soon her heart will want him, body and soul, but
Cassian can’t give Mishella his soul because he feels it is lost and gone forever. Can he trust her when so
much has happened to him? Will Mishella be able to walk away from him in six months when the contract is over?

I extremely enjoyed seeing the mix of cultures in this book. Seeing how “our American way” can look
to someone that doesn’t know any different. As with all of Angel Payne’s books, the subtle pop culture
references are awesome and I look for them in all of her books. Being a nerd girl at heart, they just make the
book for that side of me. I loved the cover of this book as well. I know that a cover can make or break a book’s
success and I am thrilled that Angel Payne has a crack team in her corner for this aspect of the book. There
are several people in my “sister-hood-ship” that I will be sharing this book with. I would love to see maybe a
glossary of terms in the back of the book for Arcadian words. I love using words like that in my everyday life
and sharing them with others. Not to mention I will never look at turrets the same way now. Thank the Creator that Angel Payne was inspired to write Cassian and Mishella’s story!


About the Author


USA Today bestselling author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in middle school, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.

She started getting a paycheck for her writing by doing track reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. After disc jockey and PA work in the entertainment business then some time in the hospitality industry, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-driven romantic fiction. Along the way, she graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing several historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel’s fondest jam is writing contemporary-based romances featuring high heat, powerful heroes, and the memorable women who love them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Cimarron Saga, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), and the popular W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series. Temptation Court, a spin-off of the Cimarron stories, launches in Summer 2016 through the 1001 Dark Nights Discovery project.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, and hanging outdoors with family and friends.
