Lacey was fifteen years old when her drug addict mother died of an overdose. With not having any family to take care of her, she ran away before child welfare took her into foster care. For nearly six years, she’s survived being homeless.
One night, she witnesses crime boss Evan Durber, about to commit a murder. When Evan confronts her, she’s not thinking straight and tells him her real name.
After he lets her go, she beats up one of his high-class call girls, who can't work until her injuries heal. Lacey is taken off the streets by Evan's men to live in his house to pay back the loss of his call girl’s earnings; ten thousand pounds. But it's not about the money; Evan is captivated by Lacey and has plans for her.
With Lacey’s fiery temper and Evans’s aggressive demanding ways, they constantly clash. As they slowly and awkwardly get to know each other, they don’t realize they are both falling in love for the first time. Will they ever admit their feelings to each other before it’s too late and someone gets hurt?

uploaded once or twice a week. I hope you enjoy the new version. Much love Kitty :) xx
