Pretty In Ink

(The second book in the Bodies Ink and Steel series)
A novel by


I'm a tattoo artist that likes alpha males, loud Harleys, and men who can hold their own in a fight and in the sack.

An abusive ex caused me to move from San Diego to Kansas, to get a new start.

A new start that didn't include the rich prick that was hitting on me at the grocery store.

He was cute, but I don't do cute.

And, I don't do rich.

Or pricks.


No amount of wealth can resolve a feeling of emptiness.

I'd lived with it my entire life. Homeschooled, and raised at the hands of in-home caregivers hired by my rich parents, I grew up
not knowing what it felt like to be loved.

But I could recognize beauty.

On one dreary day, I decided I'd simply had enough. Then, I saw her.

She was beautiful.

She stopped me from making a grave mistake, one that I would undoubtedly regret.

She was bold, brash, had a filthy mouth, and she was covered in tattoos.

She was everything I didn't need.


She was far too beautiful for me to allow her to escape my life.

Pretty In Ink is a romance novel of lust, loss, and eventually, love. This stand-alone novel has the best of HEAs, no cheating, and no sex outside the relationship. Prepare for a modern day Cinderella tale, but due to the graphic nature of the sex, please be over 18 to enjoy this read. This novel is Book II of the Bodies Ink and Steel series, a series of stand-alone books about the individual lives of the tattoo artists who are employed at "Blurred Lines", a tattoo shop.
