Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.
Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
This story begins with a contract.
And an exchange of money.
A lot of money.
An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.
A devil lounges smugly on my other.
And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.
Maxwell Hutcheson wants the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And I’m going to give it to him.
I’m not supposed to enjoy being his whore.
I’m also not supposed to fall in love with him.
But I do. Both.
When our contract expires, I will walk away.
Because I have to.
But he’ll always have a piece of me.
I’ll mask my sorrow with a smile.
I’ll hide my love with indifference
… all while it’s killing me softly.
A fairy-tale romance.
It isn’t mine to have.
And this man I’ve come to love so dearly isn’t my happily ever after.
About Eighty-One Nights:
While the characters from Eighty-One Nights are entirely new, their storyline is a combination of fresh material and carefully selected themes, scenes, and settings from The Beauty Series, The Sin Trilogy, Dear Agony, and Indulge. This is intentional. I chose some of my favorite elements from previous releases and interjected them into Hutch and Lou’s story. Let’s call it a “story fusion” between our old favorites and new material. This work was briefly released under a pen name and was titled The Girlfriend Experience.
“No one gets to call you a whore.”
He stops eating and looks at me. “I’d never degrade you by calling you a whore.”
“Not a whore. Your whore. There’s a difference.”
I can almost see the wheels turning in Hutch’s head. “You’re my whore?”
“Yes. Only yours.”
“My whore.” He grins. “I don’t think that I’m supposed to like that, but I do.”
“And I don’t think I’m supposed to like being your whore, but I do. Very much.”
He reaches out for my hand and brings it to his mouth, kissing it. “You never cease to amaze me.”
“Dirty talk. Never underestimate the power of it.”
Lou is an American girl in Scotland trying to survive. After losing her Mom, her father and stepmother took her in, but now that she is over eighteen years of age, they have disowned her. As she is trying to back to college and lacks the funds, she agrees to contract her companionship for the Summer to a rich man.
Maxwell's wife died recently in a horrible car accident leaving burdened with more than the fact she was cheating on him. He is lonely and seeking a companion while keeping it all secret from his in-laws. Meeting Lou is just the perfect combination. Right?
This is the first installment in this series. It is an amazing love story and is full of obstacles and twists. Not everything is coming up roses with this deal. Distance is hard when your heart starts longing for the fairy tale to become a reality. This is one of the masterpieces created by this author. Loved this story! Now, waiting patiently for the second book to be released.
I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Thanks to the author for sharing a copy of this book.
