James McGowan is a legend. The renowned tattoo artist has a face to die for, a body to kill for, and a way with ink that’s unmatched.
He’s back in his hometown for the first time in years, finally ready to open Exile Ink, the tattoo studio of his dreams. When he sees a friend with a new piece—a watercolor tattoo done with such skill even he’s impressed—James has to meet the artist.
Cam Ellison hasn’t had an easy life. Orphaned just after her eighteenth birthday, she’s done everything she can to keep her and her little sister going. Even if it means working under a tyrannical boss who doesn’t appreciate her tattooing style. After all, a paycheck is a paycheck.
When James sets up an appointment as “Jay,” Cam has no idea she’s about to meet a man whose tattooing she’s admired for years. She never imagined he’d want a tattoo designed by her, or that when they’re face to face, sparks don’t just fly, they sizzle. After a steamy session in one of the private tattoo rooms, it’s impossible to deny the pull between them.
James is a man who knows what he wants, and he’s all in, but Cam’s got a lot to lose.
Is she willing to risk everything—her heart and her career—on the man behind the ink?

Snippet: “See something you like?”
There’s a rumble in his voice, the promise of something Cam didn’t even know how to want, that lit her nerves up like a sparkler. She could feel every inch of her skin, her nipples hardened against her bra, the texture of the lace doing nothing to alleviate the sensation.
Hell yes, she saw something she liked. She saw everything she liked. Lydia wasn’t joking when she referred to him as a lumberjack. James was one hundred percent pure, Grade-A Mountain Man. He had the kind of muscle that doesn’t come from a gym—but from chopping firewood and hauling trees through the snow. Her glance couldn’t help but linger on his chest hair as he tossed his shirt on the bench behind him, the dark smattering that narrowed into a trail, its end hidden by the low-slung jeans that did nothing to hide his beautifully cut hipbones.
She wanted to melt right there. But she couldn’t. She wasn’t some tattoo groupie and this was her chance. To add a piece for James McGowan to her portfolio was priceless, and just as valuable was the feeling—unusual for her—of pride and confidence because he’d chosen her; he recognized her ability.
Skylar Hill writes steamy romance about once-in-a-lifetime love.
She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her very own lumberjack/soulmate. When she’s not writing, she’s hiking one of the trails around her beautiful city, or drinking chai lattes in a cafe and eating way too many cinnamon rolls. She has several tattoos…but in places only her husband gets to see!
With a Skylar Hill book expect a touch of angst, a bit of sweetness, and a lot of steaminess. While you'll find plenty of the delicious drama you love, you'll NEVER find a hero or heroine cheating and every book--series or standalone--ends with a HEA or HFN....guaranteed!
