To Have [NOOK Book]

Overview

I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain. I keep my eyes down, following the flecks of silver on the unforgiving stage, waiting, exhaling a breath in controlled anticipation, my abs tightening. Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.

Overview

I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain. I keep my eyes down, following the flecks of silver on the unforgiving stage, waiting, exhaling a breath in controlled anticipation, my abs tightening. Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.

Welcome to my life, a drained bank account and six nights a week spinning around a greasy strip club pole. When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.


**To Have is the first book in a 4-part series, The Dumont Diaries. It is a novella, approximately 15,000 words, and does contain a cliffhanger. All four parts in the series will be released in August 2013.

    Great story about Candance and Nathan. This isn't your everyday

    Great story about Candance and Nathan. This isn't your everyday fairy tale, but Nathan does change Candance's life. The book revolves around their first meeting and their steamy encounter. Nathan is rich, demanding, and powerful and is seeking something from Candance (read to find out what???). Can't wait to continue series to see how their story unfolds. Great book from Alessandra.

    What a sweet book.. Ms. Torre has a knack for sure in writing my first time of course and very fond already of her work.    




    Candace is a young lady who seemed to do most things right but having a hard time supporting herself, and becomes a stripper.   A millionaire Nathan comes in and well lets just say things are steamy.   There's not a lot to be said here without giving things away.. but the mysterious man may surprise you.  Looking forward to this series.. ;)
