June Marie Lark is a part-time teacher and the-rest-of-the-time writer. She lives in New York with her very respectable husband and very tiny dog in an old house that has many stories of its own. Her favorite hobbies are tai chi and yoga, gardening, cooking, and flailing over her favorite characters in literature, television, and film.
When not figuring out how to put her PhD in political science to use, she can be found with her journal or laptop, dreaming in the worlds she builds for her characters.
Fresh from the West Coast and out of a bad relationship, Jon Park wants nothing more than to make a name for himself on the East Coast with his tattoo and piercing parlor. But opening Park Ink in the dead of winter may not have been the best strategy. By February, he’s low on cash with few appointments and enough stress to turn him gray before he hits thirty.
All that changes when he finds Arthur half-frozen on his doorstep. A homeless thief with a troubled past, he ignites Jon’s creativity and charms his way into a quick friendship. Jon’s wary of falling in love again but still recognizes talent and promises to teach Arthur about tattooing, despite what it might do to his heart.
When the ugliness they both left behind threatens to swallow them whole, Jon must make a choice—go on alone or accept the man who’s gotten under his skin just as permanently as the ink he uses.
