It’s here! It’s finally ruddy here.
The release date of INKarnate as a standalone short story… with its own (totally hot) cover. Can you believe it? Even though this story was originally submitted—and accepted—to Cori Vidae’s kINKED anthology in 2017, it still feels brand spanking new to me. (Spanking? Geddit?)
Even before the anthology was released, I was already planning and writing the other three stories set in this world. I’ve said it before, this series wasn’t just about the exploration of romance for me, but the exploration of romance at different stages of life; young love, parenthood, illness, and grief. Each book (and member of the INKomplete tattoo family) tackles one of the themes.
So here it is in all it’s buff glory. The cover for INKarnate! Just look at it…
When Emily begins an apprenticeship at the renowned tattoo studio INKomplete, she didn’t realise she was stepping into a world very different from her middle-class upbringing. But not everybody is happy about her dipping her toe into new waters. Famous tattoo artist, Matt Jones, knows she doesn’t belong. What’s he got against her, and how far will he go to drive her away?
That the first story, INKarnate, is out and in the wild is beyond exciting. The fact that you can get it absolutely FREE (because technically it’s a reprint) is just ruddy amazing. Get it here for FREE >>>> FREE STUFF
Also, whilst I have your attention, did you know that the other three in the series were available for pre-order? No? Want to see their freakin’ amazing covers too? Well, let me help you out…
After her husband walked out on her, leaving her to provide for their daughter alone, Joe has no intention of relying on a man for anything ever again. As a successful tattoo artist, she can take care of what’s hers. The only thing she needs is a little fun every now and again. And if a gorgeous man offers her exactly what she needs, if they both know what they’re getting into, it can’t get messy, can it?
Phee has breast cancer. As heart-breaking as it is, she’s determined to be strong so her friends don’t worry. They’re a family, so if she hurts, they hurt, and she can’t allow that. But when lines start to blur between her and her handsome surgeon, trying to hold everything together suddenly feels like the real fight.
It’s been five years since Blakey’s beautiful wife Elizabeth died and his grief is just as sharp today as it was back then. But now he’s desperately lonely too. As he becomes closer to his friend Aisleyne, Blakey fights it with everything he has. How could he even think about moving on? No, friendship is all he has to offer. That will have to be enough.
Aren’t they just the most beautiful covers you’ve ever set your twinkly eyes on?
