Beloved Ink (Inked in the Steel City, #8) Released Today!

Today is release day for Beloved Ink (Inked in the Steel City, #8). :)

Everyone has their cross to bear.
Ben Blair knows that better than most people can even begin to imagine. He also knows he wants tattoo artist Hannah Nakamura. Beautiful, irresistible Hannah who’d probably do the smart thing and keep her distance if she had any idea what kind of demons he has to live with.
So he’ll just have to keep them tightly leashed. He can’t change his past, but he can’t see his future without her in it.
Lust, passion, love… Can anything so damn good survive the darkness he’s endured?
Book 8 in the Inked in the Steel City Series
Available at…

Reserve a limited edition 'Only ink lasts forever' tee.

New! Limited Edition T-Shirt

Inspired by the Inked in the Steel City Series
Reserve your ‘Only ink lasts forever’ sugar skull pup tattoo T from Teespring for only $16 before April 16th.
Special edition T not available in the merchandise store. Reserve by April 16th. Choose your color and style in sizes up to 5x!

Reserve yours now.

A note from Ranae: I normally sell my book-inspired tees in my online merchandise store, but I’m  trying something new with this design. Instead of putting it up for sale in my store, I’ve created a campaign on TeeSpring. I did this because TeeSpring allows me to offer more sizes. In my store, I can only offer an affordable T in sizes S-2X. (3X if I make it expensive.) TeeSpring lets me offer sizes up to 5X! And these Ts are only $16.
If the campaign doesn’t meet its goal, I’ll put it up for sale in my merchandise store. Sizes will be limited, though and prices will be higher. This campaign must meet its goal to go to print, so if you love this T, please spread the word to your tattoo-loving friends so it will hopefully meet its goal and I can continue to offer my merchandise in inclusive sizes at affordable prices. Thank you.
P.S. If you reserve a shirt, you won’t be charged unless the campaign meets its goal.

Officer Next Door is $0.99 for a limited time!

Officer Next Door (Lock and Key, #1) is $0.99 now through April 1st only! Reg. $2.99

How can anyone resist temptation when it’s right next door?
Riley County North Carolina has a lot to offer: coastal views as far as the eye can see, and men in uniform who are even more gorgeous. Home to the most notorious prison in the state, Alicia’s new hometown is crawling with men who carry their own handcuffs and know how to use them – like Officer Liam Alexander, her one and only neighbor. After catching him out of uniform, she can’t resist pausing to enjoy the show. When Liam’s Southern charm drives him across the property line, life gets hotter than the Carolina summer could possibly account for. Unfortunately, there’s a dark side to life in the coastal haven, even with an officer next door.
Coordinating special events at a historic – and supposedly haunted – plantation is enough to have Alicia questioning her senses and her sanity, but the spirits of the past take a backseat to a pair of escaped convicts who blaze a trail of mayhem across Riley County. Not even the most intense chemistry can survive the perils that make a sunny seaside town a dangerous place to be after dark … can it?

Inked in the Steel City Book 8 Reveal!

(Inked in the Steel City, #8)
Loneliness. Lust. Longing. They say bad things come in threes, and for Ben Blair, tattoo artist Hannah Nakamura is a triple-threat. Her beauty goes beyond ink, and beyond words, but it’s easy to see that she’s hurting. He’d have to be crazy to think she’d surrender a broken heart to him and his demons.
He’d have to be even crazier not to try like hell to make her his, despite the pain of her past … and his.
Live for pre-order at…
B&N and Kobo pre-order links coming any day now. Amazon to follow in March.
