Publisher's Summary

Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.
Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
It's not.  

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.     

Eighty-One Nights is Book One of two in a duet.  

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.

Falling in love with an escort

Cait needs money lots of it to pay for college. When her roommate convinces her to work as an escort at Inamorata Cait can’t help but become skeptical since she on a man hating hunt.
At her first Inamorata party Cait meets Hutch a man who wants the girlfriend experience for three months.
Opposed to letting a man into her heart Lou

Narrators:
Natalie Easton was the very talented narrator who gave a performance of both Scottish and American accents. She was the voice of Cait. I enjoyed listening to her accents. I was impressed. She read the scenes word perfectly.
Kurt Crossan was the male narrator who performed Hutch’s Scottish character. He was okay. Personally it’s not his fault I wasn’t swooning over Hutch’s character it was written in a way that satisfied my need to call him a good book boyfriend.

Overall:
I feel like this plot line has been done one too many times. Georgia didn’t offer anything remotely unique in this arrangement. I’ve read it all before. Instant connection, fall in love, time constraint, jealousy, and say goodbye.

It’s a sexually driven story of an arrangement made with the promise of an eighty-one day summer romance. The sex is everything I’ve read before. It’s not an original story in regards to the sexual experience.

Georgia made a point to point out certain aspects of the story, yet left out other details. It lacks consistency.

This book reminds me of the Beauty series. In fact, the premise is almost the same as if a template was used. Strangers meet, both from different countries, visiting for limited time, fall in love, a

Phenomenal book

Any book by Georgia Cates is a book you’ll always devour and crave more. Eighty-One Nights is no exception. This story is unique, scorching hot, and consuming. I devoured this story in one day and am desperate for more. It was everything you want in a story and more. The story is so extraordinary and incredibly wonderful I may need to re-read it again ASAP.
