The Wedding Pact
Carrigan O’Malley has always known her arranged marriage would be more about power and prestige than passion. But after one taste of the hard-bodied, whiskey-voiced James Halloran, she’s ruined for anyone else. Too bad James and his family are enemy number 1.
Hallorans vs. O’Malleys—that’s how it’s always been. James should be thinking more about how to expand his family’s empire instead of how silky Carrigan’s skin is against his and how he can next get her into his bed. Those are dangerous thoughts. But not nearly as dangerous as he’ll be if he can’t get what he wants: Carrigan by his side for the rest of their lives.
This book had heat, drama, heart, and so much going on that it was fun to read. It felt like an old mob movie at times and I loved it. The alternating point of views, the “bad” guy trying to do some good, the different families and gangs, it all made for a really great read.
The book was fast paced and suspenseful. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, not knowing what was going to happen next. Then when Carrigan and James were together it was like a hush fell over the madness around them. The Wedding Pact is one crazy fun roller coaster that everyone needs to experience. It’s suspenseful, romantic, sexy as hell, and fast paced. It draws you in and doesn’t let you go.
A review copy was provided by Netgalley for an honest review.
Once upon a time there’d been a right and a wrong and a clear line between them. Now everything was upside-down and backward… But there was no getting off this crazy train – the door had closed and they’d left the station.
Well, you know I’m twenty-eight. My value is only diminishing with time. And let’s not even talk about my eggs.
The only time I really feel safe is when I’m with you.
You want me, lovely. You want me so bad you burn with it.
Even knowing the trouble that was coming, she still wanted James almost more than she wanted her next breath – which just proved she was too stupid to live.

About the Author
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way-as it often does-and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time-when not lost in Far Reach worlds-playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
