A few 'Stolen Moments' with the Vitalli Family because we can't release without you.


“It’s not a diamond, you can’t wear it on the right finger, and it doesn’t come with a proposal, but it’s yours.”


Title: Nothing Without You
Series: Vitalli Family #1
Author: Ellen Wilder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Kindred Ink Press
Release Date: April 18, 2018


From author Ellen Wilder comes book one in the Vitalli family saga — a new contemporary romance shining light on the struggles and triumphs of loving someone with a mental illness.

Pharmaceutical botanist, Julian Vitalli, spends his time researching medicinal marijuana to aid cancer patients and help manage his bipolar disorder. With two ex-wives under his belt, love was the last thing he was looking for when it crashed outside his house.

Liza Thomas lost her childhood best friend to the foster care system and began her career as a case manager to keep others from the same fate. Still mending her heart after her last breakup and frustrated with her increasing workload, Liza never expected romance to appear on an icy road.

Can a tortured man fighting bipolar disorder and a woman with a fractured heart the size of Indiana be exactly what the other needs to survive?

Liza clutched the steering wheel as the car spun around on the icy road. Her shoulder and head slammed into the driver’s side window. Pain shot through her, and she groaned as the vehicle came to a complete stop snapping her body forward.

Time slowed, and the scene in front of her went fuzzy. Sounds echoed as if she were in a tunnel but were muted at the same time. Dogs barked, and car doors slammed.

A cold breeze hit her as the door opened, and she shivered.

The scents of sandalwood and cedar wafted into the car.

“Are you all right?” a male voice said.

Someone reached across her to turn off the vehicle.

She blinked twice as the lights in the car flickered on.

Liza twisted her head, but a green thermal shirt stretched across a taut chest blocked her view. Her mouth opened, but no words came.

“Did you hear me?”

Her gaze traveled up to find mysterious deep blue eyes staring at her with an intensity she’d never experienced before.

The man’s brow furrowed, and he tilted his head.

This time, the words tumbled out. “I’m okay. What just happened?”

“Stay put. I’ll call an ambulance.” He stuck his hand in his back pocket and brought out his phone.

“No,” she mumbled and rubbed the side of her head. “I don’t need an ambulance.”

He put his phone away, leaned across her, and released her seatbelt before helping her swing her legs out of the car. “Are you sure you’re all right? How many fingers am I holding up?”

“Two.”

He nodded and held out his hand.

“I’m fine.” She grasped the stranger’s hand, and sparks flew down her wrist. Her body stilled, and she fixated on his eyes as he pulled her to her feet. Her legs trembled as she stood.

His lips curled into a half smile. “Hi.” His hand came to rest on her lower back, and he led her out of the road.

“Were you the one who hit me?”

He pointed toward the driveway where two women stood. “No, my mother and aunt crashed into your car when they came out of my driveway.” He removed his hand. “Are you sure you don’t need an ambulance?”

“No, I’m fine.”

The two women whispered to each other and one gave a slight wave.

Liza waved back. She didn’t recognize either of them, but there was no reason to be rude.

“Are they okay?”

“They’re fine. Mom hit a patch of ice and couldn’t get the vehicle stopped.” He offered his hand, and she accepted it. “Julian Vitalli.”

“Liza Thomas.” A gust of wind blew through her thin sweater, and she shivered, rubbing her arms to warm her. “It’s cold out here.”



“Those are stolen moments, honey. And you’ll find they save a heart as much — or more than — a dozen roses or a diamond ring.”


Title: Stolen Moments
Series: Vitalli Family #2
Author: Ellen Wilder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Kindred Ink Press
Release Date: May 9, 2018


From author Ellen Wilder comes the second book in the Vitalli family saga — a standalone contemporary romance about overcoming life’s big struggles by focusing on the little things.

Trevor Vitalli’s plan involved a life in the military — single and childless. Now honorably discharged thanks to a severe knee injury, he’s ready to start his new life as a conservation officer as soon as his doctor gives the all clear.

After losing their last known family member, Dr. Arianna Halsey and her fifteen-year-old daughter, Mina, move to Indiana where Ari lands a new job, attempts to work through her trust issues, and stumbles through one surprise after another.

When Trevor and Arianna cross paths, the attraction between the two is instantaneous and incredibly sweet, even with the addition of Ari’s daughter. Can the trio adjust to life’s hiccoughs and find their way to happiness together?

At midnight under a full moon, Dr. Arianna Halsey rushed down the obstetrics hall of Bryton Hospital. Beige walls whizzed past her, and the staff raced around as chaos reigned supreme. The swarm of people brought a wave of claustrophobia, almost as if she were swimming in a sea of hospital scrubs. She blew out a breath to rid herself of the building stress and skidded to a stop.

The door of the labor and delivery ward swung open, and a nurse stepped out. “Oh, thank God you’re here. Room two. She’s pushed twice, and the baby is crowning.”

Arianna hastened through the double doors and into the delivery room.

“Where were you? I’m pushing.” The woman on the bed screamed.

Arianna walked into the gown a nurse held out then slid on a pair of rubber gloves.

The nurse leaned in and whispered, “There’s a gramzilla in the room.”

Arianna stifled a laugh. A rolling stool sat at the edge of the drop-down bed. She sat down, rolled forward, and touched the woman’s legs. “All right, give me one good push, and let’s see what we can do to speed this up.”

“She’s been pushing.” The grandmother-to-be gave her a haughty glare then as if she were the doctor. “The baby’s too big.”

Arianna ignored the anxious grandmother and patted Alexis’s leg. Getting no response, she patted again, coaxing Alexis to look her in the eye and focus on what she was saying. “She is not too big, and you can do this.” Arianna gently massaged the skin from around the baby’s head. “She’s crowning. Two more good pushes, and she’ll be out.”

“Who is this doctor? She doesn’t know anything. I’m her mother. She needs a C-section like I did.” The mother hissed and threw up her hands.

“It hurts. I can’t do this.” Alexis tried to clamp her knees together and moaned as her back arched away from the bed.

“I know it hurts, Alexis, but you can do it. Push for me. You’re fighting gravity. Drop your chin to your chest, hold the back of your knees. Mom, you can help too. Hold onto the left knee as she pushes, and with your other hand, bring her shoulder up and forward. She needs your help.” Arianna put her hand on Alexis’ right knee to help from that side.

Alexis bared down. “Ow, ow, ow! I can’t.” She leaned into the push, and as she did her mother let go of her left leg to get behind her.

Arianna’s eyes widened as she tried to move out of the way but was too late. Alexis’ foot connected with Arianna’s shoulder, and the rolling chair went flying across the room. Her head connected with the wall, and everything went black.






Ellen Wilder was born and raised in Indiana. She is happily married to her husband of five years and enjoys raising their two girls and one boy in the house where she grew up. They have a border collie/corgi mix named Loki.

Her parents started reading to Ellen and her siblings at a very young age. They quickly tired of books for younger children and turned to chapter books like Tarzan, The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings forging Ellen’s love for reading.

Ellen started writing in Junior High with an assignment from her computer writing teacher. Her first attempt at a modern day Old Yeller crossover with NYPD Blue was “awful”, but that didn’t stop the inspiration from flowing. Ellen now writes contemporary romance novels with a realistic twist to them. If you’re looking for fairy tales, you won’t find them here as her characters deal with real life issues. She loves helping people with their writing, paying forward the help that she has received allowing her to be where she is today.

Fund Information:
The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.

If you want to know more about Keith or why Denise does what she does, here is short video/interview that speaks to that!

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). At the end of the event, participating authors will pay AFSP directly.

AFSP is the only national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those affected by suicide. AFSP is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Delaware with primary offices in New York City. Federal tax ID # is 13-3393329. AFSP’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) number is 10545. Donations to AFSP are tax deductible.
