From the Author
"Wife?" I look down at the new ring on my left handand see a similar ring on him as he stalks toward me in all his gloriousnakedness. The water from his recent shower gives his ripped, tan body a sexysheen.
Our bed is disheveled in a way that only all night fuckingcan accomplish. Empty bottles of Dom Pérignon litter the high-end hotel roomI've unexpectedly woken up in. I've retrieved most of my clothes, but standholding one red high heel; the other is still lost somewhere.
"We appear to have had too much to drink lastnight," he says with a smirk on his handsome face, cobalt blue eyespenetrating. "I think we both got a bit carried away."
I pull my eyes off his body and focus them on his face,which doesn't help me as much as you might think, because this man is the mostgorgeous male specimen I've ever seen in my life, and I work with strippers.Well, okay, mostly I work with the women since I own a company that plansbachelor and bachelorette parties, and men are more likely to hire strippersthan women. But still, I've seen my share, and this man... I can't even...
With all the intelligence of my Ivy League business degreeapparently out to lunch, I repeat again, "Wife?"
He's still naked, by the way, as he moves closer to me andreaches for my left hand. Heat floods me as our skin makes contact. He caressesthe gold band on my left hand. "Wife."
His voice is husky and deep, and it sends shivers up myspine as my temporary, alcohol-induced amnesia fades, and a memory from thenight before makes a belated appearance at the party.
I remember him. He was to our right, at a table near thebar, smiling at me with too perfect teeth. My twin brother, Tate, ever thewomanizer, nudged me. "I've got my eye on the woman at that table,"he said, pointing to a perky blond who was nearly drooling over him. Not that Iblamed her. I mean, he's my brother, but I'm not blind. "So you should gofor this guy. He's clearly into you."
My best friend, Vi, grinned at me from across the bar, whereshe'd cozied up to a shy but cute guy that didn't stand a chance against hershapely curves, wild red hair and green eyes. We hadn't been out like this inso long; we'd all been too busy working, building our businesses. Tate workswith me at Hitched, and Vi, well... Vi has a unique niche market going in thedominatrix world.
When my brother left me at the bar to woo the panties offthe blonde, Mr. Sexy strode over in his suit and tie, exuding confidence, adark mop of hair offsetting eyes that were an unreal shade of blue. I couldtell I was about to have my panties wooed off me as well, and I didn't mind onebit.
"Is this seat taken?" he asked, pointing to whereTate had been sitting.
I smiled. "Not anymore. I think my brother has foundsomeone more exciting to entertain him."
"I find that hard to believe." He slid into thechair, his leg brushing against mine as he pulled in closer.
"Because you know me so well and can with confidencesay I'm the most entertaining person here?" I teased, sipping my cocktail.
"I'm good at reading people." He held out hishand, and I took it. "I'm Sebastian Donovan. It's a pleasure to meetyou." Instead of shaking my hand, he brought my knuckles to his mouth and,while maintaining eye contact with me, caressed my skin with his lips in afeathery light kiss.
"Kacie Michaels. Nice to meet you," I said, as Isilently gave my panties notice that they wouldn't be needed for long.
Other memories are still shadows pulling at my poundinghead, trying to break free. "What happened last night?" I ask, stillprocessing the rings. There's no way we tied the knot like drunken assholes inVegas. Not. Even. Possible.
He hands me some paperwork I hadn't noticed sitting on topof the mahogany dresser. "This happened. I admit to being as surprised asyou."
I raise an eyebrow. "I very much doubt that."
His grin falters. "Do you really not remember?"
I look down at the paper. It's a marriage license, signedand stamped and very official looking. Holy shitballs. What the fuck have Idone?
"Bits and pieces are coming back," I admit."But I don't remember this," I say, holding up the paperwork."This can't be legal."
"I'm afraid it is. I already made a call to my attorneywhile you were sleeping. Unless you're already married to someone else?"Now he raises his eyebrow, and I scowl.
"I think I'd know if I was previously married."
His lips curve into a sardonic grin, and I sigh at the ironyof my own words. "Don't give me that look, dude. This isn't standardoperating procedure for me, and I'm guessing--hoping--it's not for youeither."
"This is a first," he assures me. "You're thefirst."
My heart flutters, whether at his words or the way he saysthem, with heat and desire and all the things that landed me in this spot rightnow. I know I'm not his first sexual experience. That much is clear. I guessthat makes me his first wife. Um, great?
As the crowd at the bar grew louder, we moved closer totalk. I couldn't help but notice how good he smelled, a spicy, woody scent withhints of cinnamon and cardamom. It made me want to taste him.
As if reading my mind, mid-sentence he leaned in, cupped myface with his hands, and pressed his lips to mine. He tasted like expensive redwine, and he deepened our kiss, exploring my mouth with his, our tonguesteasing each other.
When the kiss ended, and he pulled away, I felt deflated andaroused all at once. I missed the feel of him, the contact with his body, and aneed grew in me that I hadn't felt in quite some time.
He licked his lips and smiled. "I've been wanting to dothat since I first saw you walk in with your brother and friend."
I flushed at the thought that he'd been watching me thatlong. We'd been here for hours.
"You make quite an impression with a first kiss,"I said.
"That's just a taste of what's to come." Hewinked. I nearly swooned. Not actually swooned, because, you know, I'm not atoo-tight-corset-wearing damsel from the Victorian era, but if I'd beenstanding, there'd for sure be some wobbly knees.
This man. He was delicious, and I wanted more.
I plucked the cherry from my drink and sucked on it in aseductive way. "You're not the only one with skills," I said.
He was sitting so close, his knee was between my legs, onehand on my thigh, pushing up the red dress I was wearing. "Shall we gosomewhere and explore these skills in more... depth?"
I didn't need to touch him to tell he had enough in hispants to give true depth to those promises. I reached for my purse and caughtTate's eye. He looked at both of us, then smiled and mouthed, "Havefun!"
We walked out of the bar, Sebastian's hand on my lower back,lingering just a little bit too low, fingers exploring the curve of my ass. AndI didn't mind a bit. Believe me, if I did, I'd make my thoughts clear. No onehas ever accused me of being too shy to express my feelings.
But right now, with this man, there was only one feeling Iwanted to express, and it required considerably less clothing.

Its a fun witty style about a couple that meet have great sex and wake up married and she doesnt remember a thing and he remembers it all. She wants out he begs to give them time to get to know each other and tells her they are meant for each other he knows it. You have a jealous ex stirring the pot. A great best friend and a set of twins that are inseparable and from a small town that goes to Las Vegas to start their business and to get out of the small town ways. Its a great story about a good ole doctor with a bad past he has had some terrible heartaches and when she finds out about who he really is she knows they are doomed especially when the ex is still really close...this man saves childrens lives, has rich parents and she is from a normal family from that small town...how could it ever work she says no way but the good ole doctor has met his match and he plans on keeping what he has finally found that is more than he ever expected to find in the bar of the Casino he has a room for the night from the conference he had to speak at!
Its a different style of what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas because they all live in Vegas its not just a fling that they flew in and had a one night stand they have to live with the one night stand within Vegas so yep its true it stays in Vegas. I loved it, If you like a hot steamy sex with some heartbreak filled within some witty banter and finding out how to handle that and to watch people find real love then you will love this book! Great writing, cant wait to read the next book about the best friend and thanks for wrapping this book up nice and neat and moving forward into the other characters lives in the next book Whipped!!! Loved it and first time reading from this author and wont be my last!
But, for me, it is Kacie Michaels who brings this story to life.
Kacie is no shrinking violet. She is young, intelligent, determined and focused. She has long term goals with her twin, Tate, to make their party planning business a success. Nothing is allowed to get in the way of that, especially the silly dreams of her mom for Kacie to settle down into the safety and protection of marriage. Is it 1950? Kacie's been “involved” before. It didn't work out. Life goes on. She's sure love, marriage and family will happen for her one day...but does she want it to? She is not fond of the person her mother is. She doesn't understand why she should set aside her life's passion and become an nonentity for the sake of home and family. She really isn't feeling it, and doesn't seem to have any problems settling for meaningless hookups. For now.
Her path shifts...just a bit, when she wakes up one morning. In a strange hotel. With a hot, naked man. Oh, and they're married!
*Queue the “Looney Tunes” theme!*
Kacie can't remember the night before. Was she really that drunk? To marry a total, albeit, sexy stranger? Hmm...Do these things really happen? Well, it is Vegas!
I like Kacie because she's honest, especially with herself. She's used to conducting herself a certain way, and sees no reason to change simply because she married a magnificent specimen of maleness, who just happens to be a pediatric heart surgeon. However, Sebastian is so amazingly awesome, Kacie admits defeat to herself each time before she gives in – not after. (Take note literary heroines!) She also doesn't dissolve into a whining, sniffling mess at the drop of a hat. Even though she's dazed, confused...and hungover, she handles her first morning of “marital bliss” quite well. I would have needed paramedics...or another drink. She stands her ground with Sebastian without going all pyscho-feminist on him. She prepares for ending the marriage...while contemplating the marriage – very nice.
Kacie Michaels only let me down once – and that was the whole debacle that led to the abandoned red shoe. I felt she was stronger than that and there should have been a confrontation. HOWEVER, had she gone that route, she would not have had cause for that magnificent act of redemption, and I would not have been grinning and smacking my Kindle! Way to go, Kacie!
“Hitched” is fun and fast paced, full of heart rendering sighs and belly laughing snarkiness, and a definite must-read!
I heard about this book through GoodReads and Facebook. Looking at the hype of this story, I gave it a look. I was impressed with the book cover (yes, I'm one to base a book on it's cover), and the book description was so interesting to me, that I decided to buy this book and read it.
I started this book yesterday, and quickly inhaled it, in an hour. I read fast, but this was the fastest I've ever read a book. This story line wasn't unique, but the twists and turns kept me engrossed with this story. The main and secondary characters were made real and believable. This author duo has the right kind of imagination with any given situation and making the story interesting and believable.
There were some moments within the story that made me sad, happy, angry ( wanting to b*tch slap the ex), laughing out loud, and wanting to throw my Kindle across the room, due to crazy reasons that one of the main characters for not wanting to go into the relationship. I was glad to see a HEA.
I felt the pace of the story was fast and steady. It flowed with ease. I was really impressed with the editing aspect. I found no problems. All the characters in this story is what made this a really great book for me. They were put into real life situations: and they did make mistakes, naughty sex scenes, having fears come up due to their past.
I would also like to give props for the cover and the series title. It's in the story.
I want go into the story, due to readers having read the book description. All I can say is....Snarky, Sexy, and Surgeon. Use your imagination.....
I would recommend this book to all readers that love: intrigue, naughty scenes, snarkiness, sexy characters, and HEA's. Buy this book, and you'll find that you made a great decision.
I'm off to read the next book in the series: Whipped, coming out February 2, 2015.
Happy Reading To All!!!!

Kacie wakes up hungover and wearing a wedding ring. With her is Sebastian, a paediatric heart surgeon she'd met and married the night before. He's sure about her but she's full of doubts about how any woman can have it all so she agrees to date him for the summer.
There are lots of romantic dates and Sebastian sends her lots of naughty texts. I actually preferred the way he spoke in texts to the way he spoke in person at times, for he did come over as a bit of a middle-aged man who spouted pure cheese at times, but otherwise he was pretty inoffensive. He was a sweet sort, but he didn't set my world alight or anything.
The only slightly strange thing in this was the narration. It's written in first person, but she does address the reader from time to time and that was a little disturbing as it pulled me out of the story.
This was enjoyable and easy to read with lots of romance and smutty bits, so worth reading if that's what you're in the mood for.
Kacie is shocked and doesn't remember marrying sebastian, but sebastian remembers everything.
Wanting to get the marriage annulled, sebastian convinces kacie to give him the summer to change her mind.
A great read which I couldn't put down.
Definitely worth a read 😊
This was my first experience with Karpov Kinrade and it WILL DEFINETLY NOT be my last!!!
The fears, the laughter, the highs and the lows, BUT! the naughty is naughty in true KK style! You guys are the best!
