Hi Everyone,

Here are some titles I have down for Tattoo theme. Will make additions as time permits.

I ran across this description on a forum (can't recall where I was) and posted this on Book Sleuth but in case it gets lost over there, does it ring any bells for author and title?

An old historical romance in which the heroine has a tattoo of an exotic cat from her left upper arm - across her back - to her right leg. If my memory is correct, the heroine was forcibly tattooed to mark her as a bridal property of some villain. Although she was rescued before she was handed over to the villain, the tattoo remains a mark of shame for her. The hero's reaction is quite memorable.


If you know what a tattoo is and where it's located that I can put down ... new books yet unlisted or those already down, that would be great.

Hi All,

Read this one last week and have added it to the list...

Over the Line by Cindy Gerard (6/06) -- Jason has a colorful American eagle tattooed across the breadth of his chest. Jane has a pierced belly button and three small kanji tattoos... one on her neck just below her left ear (for the paparazzi) which she thinks means "Naughty Girl" but it doesn't; and the next two kanji were for her... a two-inch square on her right biceps which she thinks means "Mad Power" but it doesn't; "Soul" the size of a postage stamp just above her right breast, and a clef note low on the left side of her abdomen she got right after she signed her recording contract.

--Janie

Have a great day

Thanks, Ladies! I've added these to the Master List under the Fantasy section.

From Ealasaid:
Immortals: The Calling by Jennifer Ashley (5/07) -- Adrian, has a pentacle: "in his left buttock was a tattoo of a pentacle, an upright fivepointed star surrounded by a circle" and Amber has a butterfly on her collaborne and a Celtic interlace tattoo around her upper arm. All the inmortals are suppossed to have at least one tatto, the pentacle.

From Wendy:
Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward (3/06) -- Rhage has a dragon tattoed on his back.

Have a note down on this one from Teri P:
The Dark Hunters Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon -- Ash's "daughter" Simi is a little demon girl tattoo. When she’s around in human form, and been bad, he orders her home – back to tattoo form, where she wraps herself around him.

I read one recently, too.

Western
High Plains Bride by Jenna Kernan (HH 847 - 5/07) -- Lucie, 13-year-old captive and Indian bride, is tattooed with 3 blue inverted triangles beneath her lower lip on her chin resembling fangs, and also has a tattoo circling her upper arms to show she's a member of the Sioux tribe now.

Hi, Janie!!

Thanks so much for including my book in your listing. I just wanted to let you know that THE VAMPIRE SHRINK is a trade paperback (not an e-book).

Thanks!

Another tattoo - Emerald from High Seas To High Society has a tattoo of a butterfly on one of her breasts.
A loose fitting dress first alerted the hero to it - and he was VERY intrigued. The author is Sophia James.

Hi Lynda,

I'm happy to add "The Vampire Shrink" to our list. :)

Thank you for the correction on the format (Oops!), I'll fix that now.

Congratulations on your Top Pick Review at Romance Reader at Heart. Nice that they include a picture of that tattoo from the cover for us.

--Janie

edited to re-work the link code.

Hi Sheila,

You're the first mention of "High Seas to High Society" I've seen for Sophia James. Thanks for bringing it to my attention and helping to keep this list active.

I see that it came out in hardcover in January 2007 from Mills and Boon but no reviews to give me a clue as to the genre. My first thought was that it was Contemporary, but Amazon says Historical.

Is it Regency or Victorian or Georgian, perhaps? Maybe it's even Turn of the Century? I'll hold off adding it to the Master List til I hear back from you... else I'll surely put it in the wrong place. :)

High Seas to High Society by Sophia James (HH 888 - 2/08) -- Emerald has a tattoo of a butterfly on one of her breasts. A loose fitting dress first alerted the hero to it... and he was very intrigued. (1822 - Regency)

--Janie

edited to fix codes and add the HH info.

Yes, Janie, sorry, I do know the book has not been published in the States yet - hopefully it will be soon as it is a good book.
SPOILER:












Set in 1822 (so I guess it is still a Regency) the h comes to the UK to retrieve her late father's walking stick as it has a treasure map inside it. The H stole it when he killed her father. Her father was a pirate although he was also a member of the ton.
Sophia Jame's next book - Masquerading Mistress - is out in the US soon. Sheila.

<font color=black>Thank You, Sheila. I think it's Regency, too... or at least Regency-ish. ;)

I've not read this author yet, appreciate the heads-up.

Janie, two more tattoos for your collection. :wink:

Dark Moon by Lori Handeland

Elise Hanover was given a black pentagram on her palm - the power to heal - when she chose to sacrifice herself for the good of mankind.

A Man In A Million by Jessica Bird

Silhouette Special Edition #1803

Spike Moriarty, a huge spiky-haired and ear-ringed tough biker guy, also has a tattoo on his back - medieval scrollwork that runs up his spine and splits to go over his shoulder blades and around to the front, with the tail ends showing on his neck.

If you like dark fantasy with lots of romantic elements and edgy sex, DO NOT MISS Jacquelyn Carey's Kushiel and Imriel series. The covers are gorgeous.

I actually found her because my husband bought it for the cover. I have a full back (nape to buttox) tattoo and the heroine's cover illustration was really similar.

She's now my favorite author, though I hated the other series.
