The series is linked by a theme of tattoos and survivors of various traumatic experiences, and the author has received a prize for best unpublished contemporary manuscript for this book from two romance writers’ associations, according to her bio-blurb. This story stars a woman who is on the run from a dangerous situation, and the rough-exteriored but surprisingly gentle ex-con who longs to help her. NB: Apparently this one tackles themes of domestic abuse, in case that’s something you’d rather not encounter in your leisure entertainment reading. YMMV.
