About TATTOOED EMOTIONS
Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress. Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now.
Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way.
The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable.
Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?
His laughter was a stunning sound to my ears. It was infectious and the kind that made one smile just for being privy to hearing it.
“You should laugh more often,” slipped out of my mouth before I could stop it.
Maybe he did, and I just didn’t know him well enough to know any better.
I regretted my comment instantly as Damien pressed his lips together and swallowed.
“Why is that?” he asked.
My fingers began to make work of what was left of my straw wrapper again, and I confessed, “It makes you less intimidating.”
His expression turned to surprise. “You find me intimidating?”
I felt my face heat. “Very much so.”
The planes of his features hardened fractionally. “Sometimes, there isn’t much to smile and laugh about in life.”
I couldn’t argue with him there, so I subtly nodded my head in agreement. Again, I grabbed my wine as a distraction. “So, what about you? What are your strengths and weaknesses?” I questioned, disturbed by how eager I was to hear his answers.
Damien raised his hand and ran it back and forth across his jaw. I could tell he was thinking deeply.
“Well, with my companies, I have a canny ability to keep calm and delegate orders when the time calls for it. I have a bachelor’s in business management, and it has served me extremely well thus far in life.”
“And your weaknesses?” I pressed in a teasing voice to maintain a light atmosphere.
“Oh, there are too many to list.” There was no way I was going to let him off the hook so easily with his evasiveness, so I playfully narrowed my eyes at him. “You’re going to have to do better than that.”
He was quiet for a few moments, seeming lost in his own mind. Just when I finally thought he wasn’t going to answer me, he told me, “I constantly need to have control.”
