Falling IneBook - 2013
With a dark past that would have shattered most people, Evelyn "Scout" Keats is doing what no one in her bleak world thinks possible--getting off the streets and leaving her impoverished life behind. She's a new maid at the luxurious Patras Hotel, and aims to keep her job no matter what. But that doesn't mean she's going to sacrifice her dignity, or let anyone into her heart. The risk of losing either is just too great. When hotel tycoon Lucian Patras discovers Evelyn in a compromising position, he uses everything at his disposal to seduce her--a proposition that both surprises and frightens her. Ignorant to her true circumstances, Lucian relentlessly pursues Scout as a prize to be won. But he is soon given an unforgettable lesson in love and sacrifice when he learns how far Scout has gone to gain her independence and discovers that there are some things money can never buy.
