For those who like a fresh read on arranged marriages, try out “Radiance”
Princess Ildiko and Prince Brishen are married to secure an alliance. But instead of the usual whining and fighting I usually see in most books, the two decide to make the best of their situation.
They get to know each other better and become friends. And later, they fall in love despite differences in their culture and their standards of beauty (one looks ugly to the other and vice versa).
Give it a try. It’s basically two people being mature about their situation and decide to work together to make their marriage work!

Any of that familiar to you? Any of it sound good? Here are some recommendations for you:
