Leora is reeling: questioning everything she has ever known about her family and herself. As half-Marked and half-Blank, will she ever wholly belong in either community? She sets off to find Featherstone, home of her mysterious Blank birth mother, but will she find solace and safety or a viper´s nest of suspicion?
´´When the broken man with scarred skin walked into Heathens, asked for a job, and showed me a sketch of a phoenix, it felt like fate.´´ - Adam It started with an anonymous post by someone who didn´t want to live anymore. I read it over and over again, unable to get it out of my mind. What if my brother Johnny had posted something like this before he´d taken his own life? Would someone have been able to save him? I´ve been living a lie for 16 long years, and I´m not sure how much longer I´ll be able to keep it up. And when a beautiful, broken man walks into my tattoo shop asking for a second chance at life, I know I´ll never be able to turn him away. ´´When I was so far down I couldn´t even see the light, a stranger reached in to save me.´´ - Nox I didn´t have anything to live for, until a kind stranger pulled me back from the brink. With physical and emotional scars, I have nowhere to turn now but to that same stranger who saved my life without realizing it. But as my feelings for Adam grow, will I ever be anything other than a surrogate for the brother he couldn´t save? Am I even worthy of his love?

´´I never thought I could want anyone as much as I wanted Nash, then I met you´´ (Royal) When I was 16, I was afflicted with a terrible curse...I fell in love with my straight best friend. I never thought I´d move past my feelings for Nash and find someone who could love me in return - until the day a gorgeous marine plopped himself down in my chair and asked me to ink him. I´m falling fast for Zade, but my feelings for Nash are still very real. When life starts getting complicated and Nash speaks the words I never thought I´d hear, the only thing I want is for us to find a way to make this work...together. ´´What if I told you you´d never have to choose?´´ (Zade) I thought I´d stay in the marines for life, that was the plan. But after a traumatic event, I couldn´t make myself reenlist when my contract was up. Confused and unsure what to do next, I called up my best friend for a place to stay. What I didn´t count on was my best friend´s boyfriend practically throwing a sexy tattoo artist at me to keep me busy. Royal is everything I´ve ever wanted, and his roommate, Nash, is starting to grow on me, too. ´´A few weeks ago I thought I was straight. Now I´m sandwiched between two sweaty men. Can´t say I do anything half-assed.´´ (Nash) Of course I´ve noticed that my best friend, Royal, is crazy good looking. I have eyes. That doesn´t mean I´m into guys. Although when I start to notice that his new boyfriend, Zade, is pretty hot, too, that makes me start to question things a little. Not to mention the dreams I keep having of the three of us together. I´m willing to try if they are. This is NOT a love triangle, just good old-fashioned man-on-man-on-man love. Every book in the Heathens Ink series can be read as a stand-alone, but it´s way more fun to read them in order. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cooper North.

Clay: My mind and body are full of chaos; the only time I can truly feel free is when my hands, arms, and legs are secured. Just because I want to be bound, able to give over my pleasure entirely to another person, doesn´t mean I want to be controlled, humiliated, or made to endure pain. I´m a successful, happy, confident adult man who wants a lover to tie him up. Why is that so scandalous? And why is it so difficult to find? It doesn´t help that I´ve developed a hopeless crush on my straight roommate. Maybe a fulfilling relationship isn´t in the cards for me. Max: I´m completely out of control of my life. My ex is trying to take my daughter away from me...again, my dream of owning my own motorcycle repair shop seems out of reach, and somehow I find myself a 32-year-old man who can´t afford to have a place without a roommate. So it´s no huge surprise that the idea of being given complete control over someone´s body and pleasure is a major turn-on. I never had any inkling I might be into guys until my best friend told me he likes to be tied up. Now I´m losing sleep, imagining him bound and begging for me. I can´t figure out if it´s just the kink or if it´s possible I´m falling for him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Obi.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren´t out of the picture, and he´ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby´s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he´s always seen.

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a forbidden love between three friends and a past that they can´t escape. Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him - it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he´d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he´s falling for someone else, or at least he thinks he is. Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can´t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake´s past shows up at their door, she´s forced to admit that if she doesn´t take the risk of a lifetime, she´ll regret it for the rest of her days. Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he´s back and ready to see what he´s missed. He´s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they´re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take. It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it´s not only their hearts on the line but also their lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Salinas.
