WHEN HATE BECOMES OBSESSION…
Mistaken for her beautiful half-sister, Ellen Winthorp is taken captive by a madman who declares that she will be his "fifteen": the fifteenth victim of a vicious mafia blood feud. Armed with only her instincts, Ellen must resist her captor for as long as she can—which is easier said than done the more she's exposed to the complex man beneath the beast.
Because Mischa Stepanov isn't a mindless monster—he's a wolf, and she's the unwitting doe caught in his midst.
Unraveling the torment of his past may be her only hope of salvation...
Or the secrets uncovered may destroy them both.

Hell is a rose
Hell is a rose.
Ellen is the half sister of Briar. She’s the step sister of Robert and his wife.
Briar sells Ellen out as her decoy and Ellen is taken and held by Mischa for information. Oddly enough, Mischa is looking for revenge on Robert Sr and Robert but he’s acting exactly like them.
Ellen has had to make terrible choices and accepts her fate. She’s pretty passive but she’s had years of trauma.
Ends in a cliffhanger.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
By the time I rated this book, I read all 3. Knowing the ending does not change my rating from the beginning. This is not a book full of total hearts and flowers, and everything does not just magically get swept away, scars do not magically heal, and the injustice does not suddenly become justice. I will not give away any of the secrets the reader must uncover, but I will tell you that if you are reading this review, take the chance ...read the complete series. I received nothing in consideration for my review; it is simply a fair review by a reader who loves when I cannot predict the middle or final outcome in a book; who finding something completely original; and who loves to give an author the praise and review they deserve.
Easy read and enjoyable story. Excellent writing!!!
