This isn’t a self-help book. No, my tale is too desperate to be helpful or even cautionary. This book is the story of how I stopped being plastic and became someone real.
People call me Kitty, and this is my story.
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Katherine “Kitty” Peters is done doing what Daddy says. She wants freedom, and she wants it now. When her father gives her a month to take the life he offers or find her own way, she takes full advantage and makes over her whole life. It doesn’t take long for her heart to take over, making Katherine more vulnerable than ever before. Unfortunate circumstances force her to realize that escaping her father’s reign is harder than she imagined, especially when the tattooed maverick she fell in love with needs her help. Katherine is manipulated into making a deal with the devil and return to her old life only to discover her one-month makeover may have changed her more than she realized.

“You can’t walk around here in nothing but my shirt and expect me to be able to do anything but you.”
“It’s a funny story, really. You see, I met this girl, this beautiful, amazing girl. We spent one month together, a staggering month. Then she left me, broke me. I was going after her. I was ready to board a plane to get my girl back because all I wanted was more months with her.”

He hugged me closer to his chest and kissed the top of my head. “Tell me something good.”
I turned over, so I could look him in the eye. “Yeah?”
“Yeah.” His hand went to my hair, and he mindlessly ran his fingers through it.
“Your brother’s going to be okay.”
He smiled sadly. “Tell me something good and true, something I can believe without question. I need the distraction.”
“Distraction, okay…” I thought for a moment. “Your bacon is the best I’ve ever tasted.”
He cracked a smile and continued to play with my hair. “My bacon’s the only bacon you’ve tasted. Try again.”
“Okay. Hmm…” I paused. “True Blood is vampire porn.”
“Better. Keep going.”
“Unicorns are real?”
He laughed, and my heart soared because I had made that happen. “Fail.”
I leaned up on my elbows, so my nose was almost touching his. “You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
I watched as the distraction sank in and the warmth filled his eyes. For the first time since his phone rang that morning, he looked like my Maverick. The hand that was wrapped in my hair pulled me closer to him. “Ditto, Duchess,” he whispered just before our lips connected. He rolled us over, so he was on top of me. No more words were spoken, but in every movement, in every touch, he told me he believed me. His kiss? Yeah, that showed me just how much he felt the same. Damn.
