The Contract Series

The Contract – Book 1

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.

Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract — fiancée instead of PA.

What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?


That’s what happens.

Can the power of love really change a person?

Will they survive the contract?

What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

Review Quotes:

“This is the first book that I’ve read by this author, and I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED IT! WOW! I can’t wait to read more by this awesome author, so I’m going to HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Contract to everyone!”

– Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers

This book will bring out the feels. Sometimes stabby, sometimes sad, sometimes happy. The cast of supporting characters bring the Hero and heroine through their journey that can’t help loving (most) of them. If you never read Melanie Moreland’s novels, I highly recommend this novel. 5 out of 5 ‘love to hate him’ stars.”
