A steamy, gripping standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.
 
Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only man I ever loved. He promised he'd love me forever. He vowed nothing would tear us apart. He swore he'd wait for me, but Jack lied.
 
Six years later, when our paths cross again, his broad shoulders, rock-hard chest, and rippling muscles almost make me forget his betrayal. His rugged voice, tempting lips, and sinful smile make it harder for me to deny the feelings I still have for him.  
 
Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but our past may be too much for us to overcome.
 
They say time heals all wounds, but the years haven't diminished my heartache. The only thing that dulls the pain is Jack's lips caressing my skin as he whispers, "It's always been you."

Could you love a man surrounded by danger?


Gigi Gallo’s childhood was filled with the roar of a motorcycle and the hum of a tattoo gun. Fresh out of college, she’s about to start working at her family’s tattoo studio — Inked. But when she shows up the first day, she never expects to run into someone tall, dark, and totally sexy from her not-so-innocent past.


Pike Moore is a bossy biker with a cocky attitude and an even bigger ego. He came to Inked to start over. New town. New job. New roots. None of that included coming face-to-face with the hot chick who spent a week in his bed before she vanished without a trace.


But when Pike’s dark family history catches up with him, can he stop Gigi from being caught in the crossfire?


Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss. The Men of Inked: Heatwave series features steamy romance, hot heroes, and strong women.

Falling in love is supposed to be the easy part.

But nothing prepared me for losing my wife. I promised her that I'd love again. Find someone to mend my broken heart. And that seems impossible, until the day that I walk into Tilly Carter's cupcake shop.


I've never met a woman like her--sassy, dirty-mouthed, and smells like vanilla and sin. Someone that makes me want to sweep her off her feet.


But there's pain in her emerald eyes that mirrors my own.

A past that neither of us can truly escape.


Now that I have her, I'll do anything to keep her.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Sabrina Stark… Jake's too wild, too reckless, and too far out of Luna's league. Or is he? For way too long, Jake Bishop has been Luna Moon's ultimate fantasy, a bad boy brawler with a wicked reputation. Lucky for Luna, she's finally wised up to the truth. Jake's too wild, too reckless, and too far out of her league – especially now that he's rich, famous, and too hot for any one girl to hold. 

A digital celebrity and trouble-maker incarnate, Jake goes through girls the way some guys go through bottles of booze. Luna, a college grad whose fortunes are flaming out fast, has two jobs, one psychotic ex-boyfriend, and zero interest in repeating past mistakes. From now on, she's determined to play it safe. No more bad boys. No more drama. And no more crushing on the likes of Jake Bishop. 

There's only one problem, Jake. One morning, he shows at Luna's place, uninvited, to turn her life upside down. But why? To help her? To hinder her? Or to settle a score long overdue? No matter the reason, Jake Bishop is in for a big surprise, because this brat from his past is all grown up – and capable of bringing the baddest of bad boys to his knees.

A full-length novel, this new adult contemporary romance is the first in the three-book Jaked Series. By popular demand, this bestselling new adult trilogy is newly available to the wider contemporary romance marketplace. Look for all three Jaked books, along with other new adult books by Sabrina Stark, including her bestselling Unbelonging series.
