A wealthy, pampered rich girl falls in love with a mysterious guy while helping her escape her killers.

Megan Montecillo's life suddenly turns upside down as she finds herself the target of a murder plot and accused by her own kin of crimes she never committed. Unexpectedly, she receives protection from Richard Peterson who made it his personal business to clear her name of all charges. Richard's shady, suspicious background aside, wild sparks fly between them even as their personalities clashed. Scared and alone with no one to trust, Megan had no choice but to depend on him and his four friends, who looked up to him as their ringleader. All together they find ways to evade the killers on various occasions as Richard and Megan struggle to come to terms with the strong physical attraction they feel towards each other. But what if he is exactly the kind of man Megan is running away from?

Will Megan survive with her life and wealth—and heart—intact?

Set in the Philippines, follow Megan and Richard as they roam the streets of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, hide away in a suburban Laguna rest house, escape to a private luxury resort in seaside Zambales, and finally, come face to face with death in an exclusively private island estate in the middle of the Sulu Sea in Northeast Palawan—and discover that they have a common bond which brought them together.

A stand-alone romantic comedy with a crime/suspense twist, this is Book 1 of Rich Girl, Hot Guy Adventure Series of two people from very different backgrounds whom fate has destined to meet out of a tragic serendipity.

Revised edition, previously published as The Gangster & The Socialite.
