Introducing Evie Woods - NaNoWriMo 2016 Novel
Evie Melanie Blandel has always been a big, shy girl. As the only daughter of billionaire Gordon Payton, she has never been in the spotlight, simply because she didn't 'look the part'. Shunned by her mother and ignored by her sister, she still tries to make everyone in her life happy.
The last thing she expected when she came home early to surprise her husband of two months for his birthday, was to hear exactly what he thought of her- as a waste of space. She also finds out exactly what he plans to do when her sick father finally dies.
And she will have none of it.
Before he died, Gordon called upon someone he once trusted, but who lost his trust when he betrayed him. Aramis Van de Woodsen regrets the day he betrayed the old man, so when he's given an opportunity at redemption, he takes it.
Protect Evie at all costs.
The request sounds simple, but as soon as Gordon dies, Aramis and Melanie soon learn that there was definitely a whole lot more to Gordon than anyone realized.
In the midst of family feuds, money wars and industry deals, Melanie decides that enough is enough, and that she wants full control of her own life. Aramis discovers something that leads to a crazy idea that only works in her favour. She knows what she wants, including the brute that has shaken up her life, and she will make damn sure she gets everything she deserves.
Ladies and gentlemen, Introducing Evie Woods.
