Archaeologist and INTERPOL contractor Dr. Natasha Jordaan is on a dangerous mission to recover artifacts looted from Morocco — the home of her past and her heart. Trained, competent, and proven, the last thing she needs is a brash, infuriating babysitter, no matter how sexy he is.

Blurb:
Abomination. The word follows Katyia Dragonovich, bastard daughter of the Regent of Sector Three.
After being turned over to the vampire clan by the only mother she has ever known, Katya swears vengeance. Although terrified, she boldly faces her new future, even if it’s an uncertain one with a man who is as cold as the mountain’s ice caps.
When the Vampire clan discovers one of their new turns has been infected with ravager blood, they rally for her extermination. They cannot allow anything carrying the mark of the monstrous creatures that have overrun their world to live among them.
But Roman Stratcovich, rightful king of the Vampire clans, has other plans. This hybrid woman—part witch, part vampire, part ravager—may be the secret to gaining what he’s lost. More than that, however, she’s also the key to unlocking his cold heart.
The question is, does he want her to?

So who am I?
Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Rule #1: Never fall in love.
Rule #2: Never sleep with a local.
Rule #3: Never sleep with the same person twice
Rule #4: No glove, no love.
Rule #5: Never break Rules 1-4.

These are the rules that I’ve lived by since I opened The Grove Bar three years ago, but in the last thirty-six hours, I have broken most of them…repeatedly. And boy-oh-boy, did I break them.

Damn you, Burton-f’ing-Hayes.

I didn’t just break my rules with this sexy as sin man; I smashed every one of them to smithereens, and then set each one on fire and pissed on the simmering ashes.

Life was easy with my rules, but now that I’ve obliterated them, I don’t know what to do. Do I follow my heart and set new rules? Or do I stick to my original rules and risk it all?

They say rules are meant to be broken, but at what cost?

Author: MV Ellis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Cover Design: Sarah Paige Opium House Creatives.

They think they’ve lost everything. But then they find each other. 
 
RAINE
I’m the clichéd “poor little rich boy”
I have everything I want, but nothing I need
I get high to escape the lows of my past
Yet there’s no escaping the monster in the mirror
I’ve always been about taking, until I took too much 
They paid the price, and it’s a debt I can never repay 
So I’m killing myself slowly 
Because I can’t bring myself to end it fast
NOA
I know what it is to have loved and lost
Now I’m slowly picking up the pieces of my life
I should put my needs first, but that’s not me
If someone’s broken I need to fix them
Even if I get hurt along the way
Nobody should feel like they want to die 
My love alone wasn’t enough before 
So this time I’m determined to be a reason to live

But the search for the wolf who never wanted to be found will soon unearth a lifetime of secrets. Her only hope is to find the lone wolf, if she wants to survive a world that is hell-bent on killing her.
