Forever Ink by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan A Montgomery Ink Novella The idea of a May-December romance has never looked so hot when it comes to broody lawyer, Morgan and sizzling tattoo artist, Callie. Between conniving family members, blondes with too much time on their hands, and their own misgivings, trust in the bedroom and out of it won’t come easy. http://carrieannryan.com/hot-ink/
Also included in this anthology:
Takedown by USA Today Bestselling Author Cari Quinn A Tapped Out Bonus Novella After honorably discharged Navy SEAL Liam Walsh discovers his estranged brother, Slater, is living platonically with Abby, the only woman Liam ever loved, he vows to remind her of their scorching history.

Bound Memories by Sidney Bristol A Bayou Bound Novella Kit Carson is back in his home town to do more than promote his latest reality TV win on Tattoo King. He’s returned to win over the woman who kinked up his world, but Renee LeBlanc isn’t the girl he remembers. Ten years can go in a blink of an eye and he won’t let her walk away from him again.
My love for Carrie Ann Ryan and Sydney Bristol just keeps growing by leaps and bounds.
*Carrie Ann's Montgomery Ink series is a sexy tattooed large family series and this novella is a story about an older man and a sweet tattoo artist. Callie knows what she wants and Morgan is who she wants, but the brooding Morgan has to over come the age difference and his conniving mother and her latest plastic hopeful. I really enjoyed the story of Callie and Morgan. In typical Carrie Ann fashion there is a deep hurt that happens before their HEA with a lot of hot and dirty sex in between.
*Cari Quinn's Takedown switches POV from Liam to Abby and that is my only problem with the story, at times it was hard to keep track of who is narrating. When they are talking to other people it's easy but when they were talking to each other it was confusing at times. Other than that it's a wonderful second chance story about misunderstandings and forgiveness. Liam up and left his family for the NAVY thinking it was the best for them in leaving he also left the love of his life pushing her away. Abby was nearly destroyed when he left but an friendship with his siblings helped in the healing. When Liam shows up to restore the family ties he finds Abby living with his brother. The spark is still their and Liam isn't going to let Abby go this time he just need to fix this relationship with his brother first.
*Now Sydney Bristol's Bound Memories fits in to her Bayou Bound series and is just as good as the others. Renee LaBlanc gave up her dream to be a tattoo artist and Kit Carson made it big after getting a spot on a T.V. reality show and then winning it. Kit has gone back home his Uncle and only living relative is dying and wants to make amends. His Uncle also wants to finally solve the one cold case that has been plaguing his conscience and has Renee and Kit look into it, but digging up old clues brings out the killer who set his sights on Renee. Kit's future is up in the air he has no set plans but the real reason for going home was to find Renee and try to rekindle what was once the best thing going for him. What he gets is so much more, there is also an appearance from Carrie Ann's Midnight Ink squad.
His mother waved her hand in the air in a dismissive gesture. “Oh stop being so difficult. Heather is a nice woman. She’s a McKinley, their youngest in fact. The others were already snapped up but she’s now ready for society and the pressures of being a society wife. She’s trained in her duties and will be fine with your wandering eye if that’s what it comes to. She’s not in it for love, but for your name. If you want to have a few daisies on the side, then keep it quiet. Your father always did. You’re not getting any younger and I need grandchildren.”
Morgan ground his teeth. There were so many things wrong with what his mother had just said, he didn’t know where to start. This wasn’t the first woman she’d paraded around him. No, Heather was the latest in an endless line of perfectly sculpted women with even more perfect backgrounds. He wanted no part of that life. His sisters lived it. His mother had. He would not hurt the woman he married. He wouldn’t be the man his father had been. While his mother never acted hurt over his father’s affairs, Morgan knew better.
“You have grandchildren, Mother.” There. He’d start with the easiest part.
“Your sisters have children and I play the doting grandmother.”
Playing a doting grandmother? Yes, and she deserved an Oscar for her performance.
“You need an heir, Morgan. Our family legacy cannot and will not end with you.”
They’d had this argument countless times before. “My sisters’ children will be well provided for no matter what children I bring into the world. We aren’t in the ducal system in England. Stop trying to put your pressures on me.”
His mother scowled. “You’ll never amount to what he wanted for you.”
He nodded. “True, because I never wanted to.”
