Brooklyn is a talented artist with an obsession for blood; one that she satiates at her uncle’s tattoo shop. It’s here at The Bleeding Heart that Brooklyn practices the art of dispensing pain onto others. Yet, nothing can dull the desire running through her veins, especially since the man she really wants to torture rots in jail for murder. When Daniel comes into her life, Brooklyn’s obsession with tattoos and blood quickly turns into desire for him. She dreams about getting him on her tattoo table as her first official customer, marking him as her own. But Daniel has a different idea as to what they should be doing with their bodies. As Brooklyn spirals out of control, her sanity begins to slip right along with whatever is left of her humanity. Daniel may be the only one left to save her, if she lets him in. In the end she will have to choose between exacting vengeance, staying alive, or loving Daniel.

Book Excerpt:


All that matters is the moment when a connection is made. The touch of a hand. Leading right to the hear. Waking all those desires lurking in the dark corners, the thrill of moving as one. Hearts beating, hurting, screaming, no longer restrained. No longer fearing the strangers who judge, taking all choice away. Allowing the devil to rise above it all. Unleashing all the power and control. Letting go. 


Daniel. Shaking my head doesn’t help to get him out of my mind. In the mirror, I try to still the image I see and swipe my make-up sponge one last time under my eye, finishing the look of eau de natural.

Picking up the curling iron, I twirl a piece of hair around the barrel and let it drop into a perfect curl. Through the hiss of the hairspray I’m using to keep my curls in shape, I hear the door close.

“I’m in here,” I call from the bathroom.

Stopping short in the doorway a surprised looking Jonathan says, “Hey Brooklyn. What are you doing to your hair?”

“Oh this? Trying something new. Does it look stupid?” I ask as I put the curling iron down in the sink bowl.

“Nope, just never seen you try this hard. You have a date or something?”

I don’t have to turn around to know he’s smiling. I hear it in his voice. Plus, I know he’s heard from Greg about Daniel and I wonder if I really am going to need to have this conversation with Jonathan of all people. “Meeting the usual people at The Wharf. Seeing a band. Hanging out.”

“Okay, if you say so. Have a good time and be home by midnight, so you don’t turn into a pumpkin.”
