Elizabeth DeVille doesn't belong at a party like this - one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.
Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail.
When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter's den of vices, she's a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn't have, and she's come up with a foolproof way to get it.
Follow Elizabeth - code-named Scarlett - to the lush Nevada brothel where she'll auction her virginity and risk the only thing that's not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil's mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.
Selling Scarlett begins with Elizabeth having a major crush on Hunter West. He's a rich, handsome man whore, who she just can't keep out of her mind. She knows nothing will ever happen between them but she still wants him.
Hunter West is sick of all the games he plays.. Not only that he's in a situation where people could get hurt including is lovely "Libby." He can't get her out of his head, and when he finds out she is actually Scarlett a whole lot of drama happens. And not only that they both could be in danger now.
I have to say I had a hard time liking this book. I liked the ending, and that was about it. I kept hoping the story would get better, but it just didn't. Well let me rephrase that, I liked the story, but not the characters. Elizabeth drove me nuts through out the whole book. At times she even seemed sort of whiny to me, and she also seemed stupid at times. The main thing that turned me off in this book was Hunter.. His relationship with "P" drove me nuts, and actually made me dislike the book. I really thought he was being a freaking idiot, and just getting himself into more trouble. But again I was happy with the ending.
