Eromantica Publications

 She can finally be mine…

JAMES - When Angel McDaniels contacts me for help with a stalker situation, I jump at the task, not intending to jump her bones immediately. But harboring a secret crush for her while she dated a friend of mine makes me reckless with this opportunity, and now it looks like she’ll need protection from me too…

ANGEL - With my newfound internet fame, I thought the biggest threat to me was a stranger sending me sick messages online. Turns out my new bodyguard—a military special forces type who happens to be my ex-boyfriend’s close friend—could be the biggest threat to me of all!

*A steamy, fast-paced interracial love story starring an ex-military man with forbidden desires. Some over-the-top drama, but at its heart, a hot but sweet adventure with some suspense and action!*

The tattoo artist with a heart of gold.
The playboy with his own hidden scars.
The international rockstar who longs for a home.
The mechanic with a dark past.

These are the heroes of Second Circle Tattoos. Trent, Cujo, Dred, Reid. And now all four books are together for the first time in a fabulous, low priced eBook box set featuring an exclusive epilogue. Why pick one book boyfriend when you can have all four?

The Strongest Steel
Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning. The scars that decorate her back are just one more reminder of things she'd rather forget, the past she wants to leave far behind her, but before she can move on, she needs him. Trent Andrews has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And there's no way in hell he's going to turn Harper away. Being with Harper is like going ten rounds in the ring—exhilarating, powerful, and dangerous. She stirs feelings in him he thought were long gone... if he can only get past her carefully constructed defenses.

The Fractured Heart
Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love.That all changes when he meets Drea Caron, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from. Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her carefully balanced life. Too bad the universe has other ideas.

The Purest Hook
Rugged, hot, and rock hard, Dred Zander is exactly the type of man that normally sends Pixie running. Not dreaming about running her hands down his washboard abs...and lower. The lead singer and guitarist for the band Preload embodies trouble behind his quick smile and guarded eyes, and Pixie left trouble behind her years ago along with the name Sarah Jane Travers and the pathetic trailer her mom called home. But Dred has other ideas. Pixie's sweet hazel eyes, purple hair and kaleidoscopic tattoo of exotic flowers that swirl up her arm haunt his dreams, and he's ready to fight like hell to keep that feeling.

The Darkest Link
When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle...and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. A bruised heart Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist. He's the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one-night stand. But when their fling becomes something more and Reid surprises her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, he's in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.

This collection includes 3 steamy interracial romances featuring three different kinds of alpha male bad boys: an athlete, a billionaire, and an ex-military artist. All involve a second chance at a first love! Includes:

1) SCULPTOR - She has no idea what she's in for… When a stunning goddess crashes my art studio, demanding I take on a project for her when I'm still knee-deep in my current one, the answer should have been a firm no. Instead, I got firm elsewhere, and the next thing I know, I'm ready to do everything in my power to claim the innocent rich girl and make her mine. She wants to make demands? I've got some of my own. But we both might have bitten off more than we can chew…

2) FATED - Sweet, curvy Nina has been in love with her best friend, Brent, for years. She accepts being friend-zoned until one steamy, impulsive night changes everything between them. But then Brent suddenly vanishes from her life, leaving her alone, confused, and carrying around a huge secret. When she runs into Brent again, both of their lives have changed drastically, and now that her old best friend is a billionaire, she’s convinced he’ll never want her now that he can have any woman he desires, and especially once he finds out what she’s been hiding for years. But will Brent surprise her after all? Or will he toss her aside again, leaving her alone and broken once more?

3) PENALTY - Once superstar jock Abraham Stone notices shy Madison Mills, all hell breaks loose. He is determined to have her, finally deciding to shed his longtime, gold-digging girlfriend, Bethany, in favor of the quiet, unassuming nerd. But with Abe’s determined desire comes crippling unforeseen consequences. Jilted Bethany won’t go down without a vicious fight, and in the end, they’ll all pay for crossing paths, one way or another. Can the athletic alpha convince Madison he’s worth the cost?
