Summary: When seventeen-year-old Natalya’s dreams of being a ballerina are killed in a car accident along with her father, she must choose: shut down—like her mother—or open up to love.

Last year, Natalya was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year, she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last year, her father was still alive.

But a car crash changed all that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular high school in New Jersey; lives with her onetime prima ballerina, now alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career.

At her new school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present, and his patient charms eventually draw her out of her shell.

But when upsetting secrets come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down again, this time turning to alcohol herself.

Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?

Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis | Cover Reveal

Title: Waiting for Prince Harry
Author: Aven Ellis
Publication date: Spring 2014
Genres: Contemporary, Adult, Romance

Synopsis:  Twenty-four-year-old Kylie Reed has always been a rule follower. Organized and cautious  to a fault, her dreams for life are often filed away for future use—when she has a house, when she meets her future husband, when she has been at her visual display job at a  chic Dallas boutique longer…Kylie always has a reason for living her life in the future,  not in the present, and not living her life to the fullest and reaching her dream of  becoming a fashion designer.

The only exception to rules, of course, would be running away with Prince Harry—Kylie’s ideal man. A hot, fun ginger boy would be worth breaking all the rules for, of course.  And Kylie is sure Harry just needs the right, centering woman to settle him down. But  living in Dallas and not knowing Prince Harry make this a non-option.

Or does it?

Because when Kylie accidentally falls into the lap of a gorgeous ginger boy—yes, even  more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Could this stranger be the  one to show Kylie how to take a chance, to face her fears, and live in the present? And could this stranger be the Prince Harry she has been waiting for? Kylie’s life takes some  unexpected twists and turns thanks to this chance encounter, and she knows her life will never be the same because of it…

About the author:  Aven Ellis has been writing fiction since she was sixteen. She studied communications at a large Midwestern university, and after graduation, Aven worked as a reporter for a community newspaper, followed by a stint at a public relations agency.
But writing about city council meetings and restaurant franchises was not as much fun as writing for young women trying to figure out their careers and potential boyfriends. So Aven got herself  a job in television that allowed her to write at night. Connectivity is Aven’s debut  novel; Waiting For Prince Harry and Chronicles of a Lincoln Park Fashionista (New Adult  romantic comedy) will be published next year.
Aven lives in Dallas with her family. When she is not writing, Aven enjoys shopping, cooking,  connecting with friends on social media, and watching any show that features Gordon Ramsay
