Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop & Giveaway



Fall is my favorite season. I love the weather and there are always exciting things going on for me at this time of year. This month is even the one year anniversary of when I became a full-time romance novelist! 

This fall I'm hard at work on my latest book. Last fall, I wrote my contemporary tattoo romance Hot Ink, which was published later that year. So today, for the Autumn's Harvest blog hop, I'm giving away a signed paperback copy of Hot Ink. Because tattooed heroes are sexy year round. ;) And of course, there are the grand prizes too...

Grand Prize 1: Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet (winner's choice - international giveaway)

Grand Prize 2: $50 Amazon or B&N gift card (winner's choice - international giveaway)

Grand Prize 3: Swag pack that contains paperback books, book marks, ebooks, magnets and all sorts of other goodies from the hop's participating authors (US only giveaway)


Participating is easy. In order to be included in the prize drawings, simply leave a comment including your e-mail address on this post, telling me whether you've ever had a crush on a tattooed hero (or heroine) of your own. It could be anyone - a real-life acquaintance, celebrity, your significant other or even a book character!

I'll even 'fess up myself. My first tattooed crush was rock musician Davey Havok. (Cool tattoos, huh?) When I was a young teen I had a HUGE crush on him. LOL Nowadays I have my own tattooed hero and I'm always falling in love with new ones in books, too. ;)

Mina never meant to fall for her sexy tattoo artist, Eric, or to become a model. But when she's asked to pose in a photo shoot for the Hot Ink tattoo studio, she can't say no. She finally gets a look at Eric's tattoos when they're cajoled into posing together, and in a few breathtaking moments, an on-camera kiss turns the passion they're asked to fake into something very real, leaving them both wanting more. The only problem is that Mina's not the glamour girl she looks like on the Hot Ink posters, or even in a tattoo magazine. She's only twenty-four, but being the sole guardian of her disabled younger sister has left her feeling much older. Will Eric still be interested when he gets to know the girl behind the ink and the make-up and finds out that she and her little sister are a package deal?

  1. Do temporary tattoos at the age of 5 count? Ok if not the ink on the guy that ran the ferris wheel at the county fair in the summer of 87.

    I have read Hot Ink and love every minute of the story line. Read it even if you are not into Tattoos the story line is just so real (kid sisters rock)

  2. Uhmmm, I'm a tattoo freak! I personally only have 1, but my next 2 are in my head and that's what the hubby and I are doing this year for our Christmas gift exchange. *squeals* "So Excited!"
    I'm a people watcher and everytime I see a tattoo, I'm gawking. Most times I get caught, I just smile and wink. They usually know what I'm lookin at. lol
    Oh my, and talk about books! Lordy, if there's a mention anywhere about a tattoo, I'm buying it! Can't help it....I just find them incredibly sexy!
    Thanks so much

  5. I LOVE tattoos. If a guy has them, it definitely raises the stakes. Even if they are slave tattoos, like Zsadist, or all over real life tattoos like Travis Barker. I love them, and I can't get enough!

    Thanks!
