Blurb: 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.
Excerpt: “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.”

CLARE'S 5 STAR REVIEW
|Having never read this author before I didn't really know what to expect when starting this book, but I can honestly say that her writing style is such a pleasure to read that I quickly found myself becoming all consumed by the story that was playing out before me. It's such a fairytale kind of romance which I totally loved, Hutch is the sexy rich hero and Lou is a poor American student that has to find a way to pay her bills. She joins Inamorata a special escort/consort service that only has wealthy paying clients, here is where she strikes up a deal to spend three months with Maxwell (Hutch) Hutcherson for a large sum of money to be at his beck and call. At first she is reluctant but as she is so attracted to him, she agrees to think about having sex with him during their time together.|
You could say that some of the story is either a bit predictable or just inevitable that they would both start to want more than that they had both originally agreed to at the start of the contract, and even though you already know what is coming for them your so lost in their love story that you don't really care about anything else but trying to keep them together. In this kind of romance there's always someone trying to spoil things for them and this book didn't disappoint in that department either.
I am so totally in love with this story as the writing was so dam good and the characters were just so easy to connect with, and lets not forget to mention the sexy scences are off the charts hot!!! I'm so looking forward to reading the next book in this series as im desperate to know what happens next.
