Under her skin
His scarred hands are the gentlest I've ever known. If only life were a fairy tale where Beauty got to keep her Beast...
Every morning I wake up and remind myself I am not my past, but beneath my drab clothing hides a secret—proof of the abuse I suffered at the hands of my possessive ex, tattooed on my skin in a lurid reminder of everything I've survived. I'm alone and in hiding, trying to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. I didn't expect healing to come in the form of a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways I'll never understand.
Ivan's scars are on the inside—a wounded soul like me. But day by day, this gentle giant proves to me that there are second chances in life, and he deserves them as much as I do. And maybe finding each other will finally allow us to pick up our broken pieces and make something beautiful and new...

|display_description||"A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run. Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret--proof of her abuse, tattooed on her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she's survived. Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma is reluctant to bare herself to anyone, much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she will never understand. But beneath his frightening exterior, Ivan is gentle. Warm. Compassionate. And just as determined to heal Uma's broken heart as he is to destroy the monster who left his mark scrawled across the delicate tapestry of her skin." -- Page  cover.|
