His Poor Little Rich Girl - Melanie Milburne
His Poor Little Rich Girl was honest, brutal at times and brilliant written by author Melanie Milburne.
Five years earlier Alessandro Vallini, was going to ask Rachel McCulloch to marry him. However, her father had other ideas and decided on that specific night she would be betrothed to another man. Alessandro had been the gardner on her father's estate while working his way through university. Her father insisted she marry a childhood friend who had heavily invested in his company. Now five years later, about to loose her company, Rachel went to Italy to beg for help from the very man she had humilated and hurt badly.
She had no where to turn but to the very man she had humilated. He looked at her with such hatred but in the end he agreed to give her the money if she would immediately leave his villa. In the end she agreed because she needed to save her fashion label, her friend and partner and her employees. However, the tables were turned on both of them by a series of events. First his housese keeper had to leave for a family emergency, Rachel found out about Alessandro's secret illness and he needed a mistress to parade in Paris for the biggest deal of his life. So Rachel worked as his housekeeper and agreed to Paris but not before she realized she lusted after him and as the days passed on, she deeply cared for this proud sexy man. In fact she loved him!
This was an incredibly and believeable romance, thanks to Melanie Milburne. The twists and turns, the roadblocks, their intimacy and in the end, Rachel's pain, had me weepinmg for them both because I so wanted them to get a second chance at love. They truly belonged together and thanks to this marvelous author, they got theirs when Alessandra realized success wasn't everything, happiness meant more.
