Synopsis from Goodreads

Looking to experience all the universe has to offer, Prince Aristides escapes from the kingdom of Tyto and travels through space to the Emerald Planet, Elatia. He yearns to partake in the activities the planet is famous for, and fulfill all his sexual desires, but loses his heart and soul to an Adamos apprentice. Unfortunately, she is Terran, and her people are sworn enemies of those from Tyto. If he can convince Xia to give up her dreams of becoming an Adamos, and travel back to Tyto with him, will his parents accept her, or condemn them both?

Abandoned as a toddler on Elatia, and raised by Kalara, an Adamos specializing in erotic massage, Xia decides to follow in her footsteps. But she remains conflicted as to whether she wants to service clients for the rest of her life, or settle down and raise a family. When she meets Aris, he turns the tables on her, and brings her as much pleasure as she gives him.

Will they have their chance to be together, or will their families tear them away from any chance of young love?

     Prince Aristides has been set up to be married to a woman he despises. But he devises a plan to make sure his best friend gets her. He wants to leave his home planet to explore the Emerald Planet, Elatia. It is a planet known for its special “services”. He visits to experience what they have to offer. But on his first night there, the woman he is supposed to be with, Xia, is very new to her job. But neither one can fight their feelings for each other and they quickly find in love. But unfortunately, she is an enemy of his planet and his family would never accept her. But he is willing to do anything to be with her.

      Oh Jessica, how I love thee! What a beautiful story. Subject has given us yet another sexy and emotional story worth reading. I really enjoyed our characters. Aristides was a very smart man. I love how sets up his bride to be who is definitely not a woman I care to know. Xia is being trained in the art of erotic messaging. It isn't her calling to say the least. She is frightened out of her mind, but Aristides is nothing like how she thought he would be. I love how she doesn't immediately fall into this job, she wants more. But she thinks since she lives with and was adopted by a professional named Kalara, Xia feels this is all she has. I love that not only does Aristides want to be with her, but will help her get the life she has always wanted even though she is scared.

      This was such a great, little story. I like to think of it like a space version of Pretty Woman without a lot of comedy, a little family drama and kidnapping. And yes, I actually like Pretty Woman. Subject truly knows her characters and make us love them in just 60 pages. It never feels jumbled or overwhelming. I won't spoil anything on how this ends, but I definitely need more. That last sentence got my adrenaline pumping. So curious! I definitely plan on getting the three other books in the Elatia series. All done by three different authors. Oh I love it! What an amazing world, well worlds. An Unexpected Return is a fun and sexy little read. Highly recommended!

Due to the daily spam comments I have been getting lately and to avoid the annoying word verification, Anonymous comments are no more. I do not want bargains on bags, watches, jerseys, boots and other crap. Geez, they could at least spam me with book and movie stuff, I would be somewhat interested LOL! Thank you :D
