Helena Hunting and a love story of tattoos and healing and hotness

I'm weeks late with this post, but I still want to do it! Why? Because some years ago, I read this Twific story called Clipped Wings and Inked Armour and it utterly blew me away. It was intense and beautiful and funny and totally evocative. Its author ramped up tension until contact was finally, finally made, and the description of his tongue ring travelling up her neck made me shiver with a completely physical reaction to its contact on my own very sensitive neck. Ahhh, fabulous.

I was chatting to the author and one point, and hesitantly mentioned a breastfeeding network group I was involved in - you never know if breastfeeding mentions will upset people, and online, it's hard to know who you're talking to. I quickly found out, though: 'Oh, I have a breastfeeding group too! It's called TITS OUT IN BRAMPTON!' Canadians... you do gotta love them, they're so way more evolved than Irish people :)

So, Helena Hunting is queen of breastfeeding, cupcakes, tats and piercings and sweepingly transcendent sex scenes. I haven't read the edited, published versions of these books yet (Christ, just wrote 'these boobs' and earlier, 'Clipped Wongs') but I will, I will, because I've been waiting for them for years now, through all the 50 Shades success, and thinking why has that woman not got incredibly famous and successful yet? I hope you'll help her to, because her tale telling is just fabulous.

She's taking over Sub Club Books facebook page at some point today, not exactly sure what the time translates as. And here are a big long lot of deets for you to peruse:

Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter.

From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.

Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.

But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…
