These Are the Men of Hard Ink...#HardAsItGets #Giveaway

By Laura Kaye

I am super excited for the release this fall of my Hard Ink series, starting with Hard As It Gets on November 26! So I wanted to share a bit about the book and an awesome giveaway of goodies I just received from my editor!


Five dishonored soldiers
Former Special Forces
One last mission
These are the men of Hard Ink

Tall, dark, and lethal...

Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome--pure temptation to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too.

With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can protect her. And only Becca can heal the scars no one else sees. 

Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Good thing Nick is always up for a challenge...


I'm also very excited to share the brand new endorsement I got for the book from my absolute favorite author, #1 NYT Bestselling Author J.R. Ward!!! Gah!

  3. I think my favorite military romances were written by Lindsay McKenna, she wrote about a woman's unit fighting drug wars down in South America. Those were some of the best militsry stories I ever read and Christine Feehan writes about her Ghost Walkers, another excellent series. Thank you for your giveaways yvonne_simpkins@yahoo.com

  15. I have really enjoyed military romance by Mel Schroeder, Cat Johnson and Heather Long. Each has great series that really showcase the complex relationships, between the men and women of the military and veterans. The stories have a special place in my heart because I have been happily married to a Gulf War-Era U.S. Army Veteran for almost 16 years.

    I appreciate the opportunity to participate in the giveaway and comment.
