My name is Ashley Ellisâ¦
I was thirteen years old when my mother â retired supermodel, Tig â married Mosier RÄumann, who was twice her age and the head of the RÄumann crime family.
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched âworkâ he expected me to do.
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosierâs clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
â¦dead or alive.

My mind skitters to her faceâher beautiful fucking faceâand the way she stared at me with those wide eyes and her lips lightly parted. Those lips. She has Angelina Jolie lips. Scarlett Johanssen lips. Liv-fucking-Tyler from the âCrazyâ video lips. Except this chick doesnât look like Liv. Sheâs got blonde hair and a perfect pout like Alicia Silverstone. I remember the beginning of that video when our girl, Alicia, climbs out a bathroom window in her Catholic school uniform, her skirt riding up to show her black lace pantiesâ¦and ahhh, yes, I feel my cock twitch just picturing it.
Fuck my life.
Shit. Shit. Shit.
Because yeah, I was yelling at Jock, but she was standing behind him, and I didnât miss the tight lines of her teenaged body under a pair of new jeans and a long-sleeved T-shirt. Her rounded tits strained just a little against the fabric of her top. Not enough to be dirty. Just enough to hate her. Because no guy aliveâleast of all meâhas a right to want someone like her. Or sure, we can want her, but weâll never have her. Not in a million years.
She looked to be about Noelleâs ageâsomewhere between eighteen and twenty, and ridiculously young to suddenly arrive alone in the middle of nowhere, put up in an old farmhouse by a couple of aging queens.
How in the fuck is this her best option?
Who is she?
And what exactly is her deal?
I grimace because the headlines of her storyâthe easy partsâstart materializing as I think about what I know about her. I didnât do all that training for nothing. Plus, I have good instincts. I could practically smell it on herâthe fear, the desperation, the way she wouldnât meet me eyes except to insist that she was an adult.
God, what a joke. If sheâs an adult, Iâm a French poodle.
Then something occurs to me: it was Jockâs boyfriend, Gus, who gave away the most important part of her story away.
She has nowhere else to go.
And then something else occurs to me, and I wonder, Is she in hiding?
This girlâwhatâs her name? Amber? Audrey?âis in trouble. Big trouble. The kind of trouble that gets other people in hot water when they were just trying to live their lives and mind their own business. And sheâs been dumped on my doorstep. Literally.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katyâs first novel was published in September 2013.
Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITAÂ© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.
Katyâs first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITAÂ® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katyâs boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1â4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katyâs Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1â4, became a New York Times e-book bestseller.
Katyâs books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
