"I haven't been so upset to not be able to hang out with fictional characters since I read Harry Potter, and that's saying a lot." Asha

"Have you ever come across a Diamond in your TBR list? Well I did and this was it! This was the first book I read by this author and she is wonderful." Jamie

"In order for me to give a book a 5, I have to have at least two big things happen. 1 being I must get completely engulfed into the writer's world almost becoming one of the characters myself. The other criteria I have is that I need to have a strong emotional reaction throughout the book. Haunted is really more like a 6." BBS Book Reviews

Seventeen days in the French Quarter with five grieving rockstars. One memorial tattoo design. Can a California girl resist their charms, or will her heart become a casualty?

When tattoo artist Jaylene's overbearing father dies unexpectedly, she quits her internship with a prominent Berkeley therapist and follows her heart to New Orleans where she realizes her dream of owning her own tattoo shop. Jaylene has everything she could want, or so she thinks, but when five tattooed, pierced, and broken-hearted rock 'n' roll boys come calling, she's challenged to put her skills---and her heart---to the test.

Maggie's Bones were Metal's next big thing when tragedy struck, leaving them devastated and at each others' throats. Hiding out in their home state of Louisiana to salvage their career, they seek Jaylene's help, and guitarist Devon Boudreaux falls hard and fast for the tattooed beauty.

Jaylene is hesitant to believe Devon's feelings are more than gratitude and believes she's doing the right thing by keeping him at arm's length, but when faced with another painful loss, she'll be forced to accept that sometimes love really can cure the haunted.
