"Anders has created wonderful variations on the beauty and the beast theme and the damsel-in-distress trope, a greatly tormented hero, and a powerful mix of menace and romance." —Booklist
He thought he was beyond saving. A cop turned undercover gang member turned…whatever he is now.
He thought no one would ever see him as anything but a beast.
Until he found her. Until she changed everything.
Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of his time in that hell tattooed across his skin. He figures he doesn't have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle?not now, maybe not ever.
Besides, what woman could possibly want the man he’s become?
Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger's pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay's frightening exterior. She thrills at the way he gentles at her touch…and under his rough hands, she burns with a passion she never thought she’d know.
But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, Georgette finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence...that not even her touch may be able to heal.

Anders returns to the town of Blackwood, Va., in this gripping, emotionally satisfying second Black Canvas contemporary (after Under Her Skin). After infiltrating and exposing the Sultans, a vicious biker gang that killed his sister, undercover cop Clay Navarro just wants to stay alive long enough to testify in trial, but the tattoos covering his face and body especially the one that says "DEAD MAN" make hiding difficult. Recognizing a fellow wounded soul, dermatologist Georgette Hadley, still mourning her late husband, offers tattoo removal off the books and after hours, no questions asked. Sparks begin to fly as soon as skin contact begins, testing George's professional boundaries and fanning Clay's fears that both his untreated PTSD and the gang members hunting him down put George's safety in jeopardy if they indulge their growing passion. Once again, the town's citizens, particularly the astute and kindly Sheriff Mullen, begin to gently break down the walls around two compelling and deserving lovers, drawing them into the community and giving them the courage to risk their hearts.

Unbelievably good . A little scary and fabulous at the same time .
