Raelyn Jennings knows one thing for certain. She loves Damien Heathman with every fiber of her being. A life without him wouldn’t be one worth living.

Damien has never loved a single soul—until Raelyn. She heals the pain that has tainted the deepest part of his heart. She is his everything, his single reason for breathing. Damien’s relentless determination refuses to let anyone or anything stand in his way of being with her.

But soon, Damien’s and Raelyn’s pasts begin to collide with their future in ways they never thought possible, testing their undying love for one another.

Damien’s dark secrets from the scars hidden beneath his tattoos threaten to reveal themselves while Raelyn is faced with impossible decisions that need to be made.

Can Damien convince Raelyn to take a risk in hopes of securing the longevity of their future? Or will Raelyn choose the safe path that also comes with a limit?

There isn’t any time to waste, for the clock never stops ticking.


There is so much emotion in Tattooed Scars (and Tattooed Emotions), I don’t know where to start. I cried. And  I’m a red-head so I’m not a pretty crier.

The choices Raelyn has to make in Tattooed Scars are unimaginable. Well, for me anyway. I know there are many people who have unfortunately faced the same gut wrenching decision. Selfishly, I hope I never have to make those kinds of decisions, but I hope I can approach them with the same kind of dignity Raelyn does.

Alicia Rae manages to convey so much depth in these stories. Yes, it’s a romance and there are steamy love scenes, but what sets this story apart from the many other romances out there with steamy love scenes at the moment is the humanity and realism Alicia manages to portray in her characters while still making them fantastically bigger than life.

We still haven’t gotten all of Damien’s back story. I can only imagine that proverbial sh*t is going to hit the fan in the next volume.

Yes, I’m once again annoyed that a story is being released in multiple volumes rather than one book.  While both Tattooed Emotions and Tattooed Scars are full length novels, I can’t help but think some editing and cutting could have been done to make this story one book. One rich, emotional, heart wrenching book.

Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm.

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?
