Passionately in love, Katarina and Chase continue to journey through their past issues, needs, and desires, determined to do whatever it takes to have a life together without the constant need to look over their shoulders.

Chase and Katarina’s father are relentless in their pursuit of the elusive Alfreita, a man who will stop at nothing in his attempts at revenge and who poses a grave threat to the safety, future happiness, and legacy of their family.

Katarina must search deep within herself, finding inner strength and drawing upon it, as she deals with the repercussions to her family and is finally able to relinquish control and place her wholehearted trust in Chase, the gift he so desperately desires.


Via Mari lives in the Midwest with her husband and their loveable fur baby. As a child who was raised in both the United States and the United Kingdom, she spent countless hours traveling and developed a passion for the written word at a young age.

She is an avid reader of romance. In fact, you can still find her curled up in an overstuffed chair, especially during winter when the wood fire is crackling and popping, reading a page-turning novel until the early hours of the morning.

As she began researching and writing love scenes for her own series, it became apparent there seemed to be a cultural divide between what people believed was normal sexual behavior, or vanilla, and that which people considered BDSM. She enjoys creating characters and scenes that allow the reader to safely explore what they would and would not be willing to try.

If any day calls for a soothing glass of wine, it’s today.

One moment, Capitol Hill lobbyist Karina Cardinal is having a heated discussion with Senator Harper, who just torpedoed her latest health care legislation initiative. The next, after a cryptic remark, the senator is dead at her feet. Hours later, she’s still so rattled she wakes to a freezing apartment because she forgot to close her back door. Or did she?

When her boyfriend, FBI cybercrimes expert Mike Finnegan, is suddenly reassigned to work a new case, he’s got bad news and worse news. The bad: the senator’s death was no heart attack—it was assassination by a hacker disabling his pacemaker. Worse: Karina’s a “person of interest.”

Certain that status could change to “suspect” at any moment, Karina begins her own back-channel investigation into who could have wanted the senator dead. Of course, in Washington, that means playing politics and following the money trail. A trail that leads to more murders…and possibly leaving the door open for a killer to change her status to “dead.”


Ellen Butler is a bestselling author writing critically acclaimed suspense and award-winning historical fiction. Her experiences working at a medical association in Washington, D.C. inspired the Karina Cardinal series. She is a member of Sister’s in Crime, International Thriller Writers, and the Office of Strategic Services Society.

Leaving Jackson Wolf  is a modern coming of age story focused on two fringe fifteen year old boys—biracial Jackson and undersized McDougal (hypopituitarism)—trying to find their power in a complicated, unforgiving world. Jackson and McDougal come together after bullies randomly target and literally throw undersized McDougal at Jackson in a school hallway. A fight ensues and suspensions are issued. Post fight, Jackson is indifferent to McDougals overtures of friendship, but then the little whiz-kid shows him how he can use his iPhone to block security cameras at a local Rite Aid so they can steal some beer. From there they become fast friends and together they face challenges of family dysfunction, loss and alcohol abuse while bonding over indie music, extreme biking and ways to hang onto their smart strong girlfriends— Lexi and Syd. As people start to exit Jackson life he believes the world is conspiring against him. But with the help of McDougal and his friend Jessica Lee he learns to lean on his strength and goodness as his he is about to confront his greatest challenge yet.


Growing up in a three bed/one bath house with nine siblings in Buffalo, New York it was a just the facts, assembly-line type of childhood. However, one day during my tumultuous teen years in the late seventies that all changed when my exhausted mom uncharacteristically asked several probing questions about how I was doing, what I wanted of life and how I was going to get there . . . totally confounding me. She was supposed to dish out commands and make declarative statements—take out the trash, don’t come home unless you’re bleeding, every time you masturbate it’s a hundred-years in purgatory. She wasn’t supposed ask articulate, inward looking, questions about myself. Self-examination and contemplation, was light years beyond my transactional existence.

Eventually, though, due to a certain amount of aimlessness and failure I did come to consider my mom’s questions and many more which led me to writing. Presently, I am the author of two novels Written In The Stars: The Book Of Molly (2016) and my current book Leaving Jackson Wolf—which chronicles the coming of age story of Jackson Wolf and James McDougal—two fringe fifteen year old boys searching for their power in a complicated unforgiving world.

Presently I live in West Seneca, New York with my wife and three college age children. I have a State University of New York background in English and I love trade paperbacks, quiet black mornings and The Ramones.
