Scars are tattoos with better stories…
A scarred, lonely woman
A curious little boy
One uninvited, tattooed guest
A nasty blizzard
A set of handcuffs
What could possibly go wrong?
Mela McKinley fled with her infant son and disappeared four years ago trying to heal the awful scars inside and out. Taking refuge in the mountains of Colorado, not one person had come near their secluded doorstep… though she was prepared for a fight.
In the middle of a historic blizzard, little Beck points out the window to a figure approaching in the snow. After hiding Beck…and fully armed, Mela confronts Jackson Winslow and has zero reservations about shooting him, if necessary.
Ultimately, saving him from the forces of nature, she takes the uninvited stranger prisoner in her home holding the upper hand. While cautiously tending to him, she realizes how much she has missed a man—though this scarred and tattooed man is not who he seems. Once he has invaded her thoughts in a delicious way, her guard is down and suddenly, the tables are turned and now…it’s his turn.
What she doesn’t know is who he really is and what he brings to her doorstep.
How do you establish a Mother's love? Is it all cuddles and kisses or giving your life for your child......is that what a real Mother is? Mela made a decision to alter her and her son's life. Protection, that is what she was offering him. I could honestly feel her love for her son. The emotions in this book were spot on. I was smiling, I was crying, I was mad and then I was laughing.
My favorite quote from the entire book......it literally sums up this book to perfection.
"When I was at my lowest of lows, a beautiful man saved my life. But it wasn't until his life was taken that I truly found the love of my life."
Everyone has scars, tats, maybe not...but scars, yes! Tell their story!
