Will love survive when he sees her darker side?
|When fairy tales turn into nightmares…
Ellie Aubrey has spent most of her unnaturally long life hiding her extraordinary abilities from the world. On the run from the shapeshifting wolves who murdered her family, she risks discovery in order to secretly watch over another group of similarly gifted people, determined they won’t suffer the same fate.
Alex Jenner has come home to protect his family from an unknown danger lurking in the woods. Suspicious of the new girl in town, he challenges Ellie in ways that will spark one of two possible outcomes: they’ll spontaneously combust, or she’ll lose control of the one power she’s fought so hard to contain.
In this fairy tale, the dragon the prince must slay is also the princess who holds his heart.

blue violet: watchfulness, faithfulness, I’ll always be true
“In this weather?” Ellie teased. She was rewarded with a deep chuckle that danced up and down her spine.
“Hey, maybe we could run together some time,” he suggested. Ellie gave silent thanks that he hadn’t noticed her reaction to him.
“Maybe….” Ellie nodded and smiled to take the sting out of what could’ve been perceived as a rejection.
Suddenly he leaned forward and touched her arm lightly. “You do that a lot, you know.”
Trying not to pull away from his touch, it was Ellie’s turn to raise her eyebrows in surprise. “Do what?”
“Answer with something vague.” He sat back, letting her breathe normally again.
“Do I?” Ellie feigned surprise. Impressive. Most people don’t even notice when I’m giving vague answers.
“There you go again!”
“Huh.” Ellie grimaced and tried a different approach. “I don’t even notice I’m doing it. I guess I don’t talk about myself much in general.” Especially to hot guys who have no clue who I really am.
“Fair enough.” Alex let her off the hook with good-natured grace. “So back to that run?”
Ellie laughed. Clearly she wasn’t going to get away with keeping her distance. Not that she wanted to. She was just trying to avoid further complication. And Alex Jenner had the potential to be a rather major complication.
