Title: Proper Ink
Series: Jaded Lily  #2
Author: Zeia Jameson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 16, 2018

Luca Cipriani knows art. Specifically, tattoos. Patience, focus, and attention to detail are crucial. 

He's consumed with it all. For the past three years, Luca has been building his reputation as the master of ink in Savannah, Georgia. It wasn't his original plan, but sometimes, lives twist and plans change. 

Kerry Frazier knows entertainment. Specifically, event planning.  Locations, guest lists, and the hottest trends keep clients begging for more. She's living the dream. 

Even though Kerry’s job is exhilarating and rewarding, it’s also never ending. So a night on the town for herself is just what she needs. 

Luca never expected someone like Kerry to waltz into his shop. And blatantly flirt with him, no less. He never imagined flirting would lead to more.

One secret night. That was all it was supposed to be. Until one night turned into two. Three. Luca doesn't do feelings.  Kerry can't do complicated.  What happens when you're drawn to someone who is bound to break your heart?

Wait, I say. I lean back and look over my shoulder, surveying the two customers still in the waiting area. I stand from my stool and pull Kerry to Padraig’s space behind the curtain. 

I’d be scared to go back here, except Stella has been back here and she wasn’t permanently scarred. What is this? Kerry asks. Padraig’s room. I don’t know what’s back here. 

Don’t look at anything. Just kiss me, please. I grab her face with both hands and kiss her hard. She kisses me back, and our hands roam everywhere over each other. 

I breathe in the scent of her hair, and I rustle it by running both my hands up her neck and to the back of her head. I pull her to me as close as I can and press her against the wall to get even closer. 

I brace one hand against the wall to keep us upright, and I search for and grab her hand with the other. I twine our fingers together and raise them up, resting them on the wall above our heads. Her breathing quickens.  

I can feel her chest heave against mine. I press myself against her, and she groans. Hellooo, Luca, she says, which causes me to laugh against her mouth. God, you’re so hot,” she says to me. 

I have to stop before I have her naked in Padraig’s room. I kiss her twice more and press my forehead against hers. You have no idea what you do to me, I say, nearly out of breath. 

I think I may have a clue, she says, also breathless. Go do your thing. I’ll see you back here in a little while. She nods and looks up into my eyes. Okay. 

We stand there, motionless, for a moment. Kerry closes her eyes and takes a deep breath. She places her hand on my cheek. I think I kind of like you, Luca. 

I smile into her hand. I kind of like you too. I know. I’ll be back soon. I can’t wait. I use my hand on the wall to push myself away from her. Her hand slides from my face as she continues to look me in the eyes.  

See you when I get back, she says. She slides out from underneath me, her hand gliding the length of my outstretched arm as she slips through the curtained opening.   

When our hands meet, I grab hers in mine and let her pull me with her until I’m out from behind the curtain too. I let go and watch her walk toward the door. 

She turns and looks back at me twice before exiting the shop. I continue to watch her, and she gives me one more glance through the window before she disappears from sight. I’m grinning as wide as my face will allow.

New Release - Sordid by Ava Harrison + Giveaway!

Title: Sordid
Author: Ava Harrison
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 16, 2018

It was his lips. The way his stare sent shivers down my spine. The way his rough voice whispered my name. So I caved. I did what I knew I shouldn’t.

But as quickly as he’s there, he’s gone. Leaving me confused.  Devastated. I hope I’ll never see him again… Then I do.  He’s my new boss. And he has secrets.

*Sordid is a COMPLETE standalone novel.


My shaky hand hovers above a document that could sever my already fragile relationship with my family. I watch as it trembles, knowing that I shouldn’t be doing this.  

I should walk away from this deal. It’s not right. This need for vengeance isn’t me. It might have been once, but something inside of me has changed. Ever since last week when I spoke to Spencer at the hospital, I’ve changed.  

What are you waiting for? Chelsea’s voice grates on my nerves, threatening to sever the little composure that I have. Just…give me a minute, I snap.  

What’s there to think about? Sign the damn papers, Grant. You don’t have a choice. You stand to lose more than Spencer. The way she spits his name gives me pause. She’s always hated him. 

Hated them all. She’s a viper, ready to pounce on anything and everything my family possesses. And right now, I’m feeding her the prey. We need this property, Grant. 

If we don’t go international and we allow Lancaster Holdings, Inc. to expand before we do, we’ll be sunk. Lancaster is growing too fast. We set this plan in motion, and we’re already in too deep to stop. She’s right. Nothing can be changed. 

I chose this road a long time ago, and it’s too late to turn back now. There’s too much lost time. Once again, I allowed my pride to get in the way of everything.  

I’d let time slip through my hands, dissolve like grains of sand in an endless desert until the years passed without a word. I watched those grains dissolve into mirages. 

Transform into something else. Something new. Something miserable. I’d watched from afar as others lived their lives. As they found love and happiness, while all I found was bitter disappointment.  

I’m not proud of who I am. Of who I’ve become. I was weak and foolish and failed myself. And, in turn, I failed them. My father was right, and I hated him for that. Loathed how right he was. 

So I secluded myself from everyone. From my parents and from my brothers, Spencer and Pierce. Built a wall. I built a fortress until all that was left before me was an empty horizon of regret.  

I had so many regrets, and it felt as if I was drowning . . . Suffocating. Without a second thought, I lower my hand to the paper and sign.
