From New York Times bestselling author, Deidre Knight, comes the new and expanded ultimate edition of her groundbreaking novel – Butterfly Tattoo.
You never know where love will find you. Michael Warner had never been with a man before, until the night Alex Richardson turned his world upside down with a single kiss. Together they shared a home, and a daughter, until a drunk driver brought an end to their Happily Ever After. A year later, Michael is still drowning in grief when fate throws him a lifeline in the form of Rebecca O’Neill, a powerhouse producer with a dark, painful past much like his own.
How could anyone ever love this face? That’s what Rebecca thinks every time she looks in the mirror. Once she was Hollywood’s favorite “It Girl” and every man’s fantasy. Now, with each kiss she and Michael share, a piece of their hearts opens more. But can two broken hearts ever truly be healed? Because no matter how carefully Michael and Rebecca tiptoe around the landmines of the past, it’s just a matter of time before unfinished business and a bombshell revelation test the limits of their new and fragile love.

Jesse Davison skipped town when she was sixteen, leaving behind the promise of romance with her boyfriend Will, and swearing never to return to the place where she lost everything she loved. But when news of her estranged mother’s death calls her home, Jesse has no choice but to bring her new job with her. She’s been forced into service as a runner by the Dream Merchant to pay back a debt for her own dream of revenge, and there are always orders to fill. And when she comes face-to-face with the attractive, but trouble-inducing Will, her job doesn’t get any easier. Because, as it turns out, she’s been dreaming of killing him for the past ten years.
Michael Warner è scivolato in una sorta di intorpidimento mentale da quando il suo compagno è stato ucciso da un autista ubriaco. Con l’avvicinarsi dell’anniversario dell’incidente, la sua sofferenza diventa sempre più soffocante. Eppure deve riuscire a trovare una via d’uscita dal labirinto di dolore e di segreti così da riprendere a vivere per la loro giovane figlia, che lotta contro il senso di colpa per essere sopravvissuta allo schianto.
Dall’oscurità giunge una voce, un’ancora di salvezza che non si sarebbe mai aspettato di trovare: Rebecca O’Neill, produttrice esecutiva dello studio cinematografico nel quale Michael lavora come elettricista.
Rebecca, un’ex celebrità rimasta ferita in seguito all’attacco di un fan pazzo, si è ritirata dalle scene, certa che nessuno potrà mai guardare oltre il suo aspetto sfigurato. La scintilla tra lei e Michael giunge inattesa, così come il legame quasi mistico con la figlia.
Per la prima volta, tutti e tre si trovano costretti a esaminare le loro cicatrici alla luce dell’amore. Ma fidarsi è difficile, soprattutto quando non sei sicuro a cosa credere quando ti guardi allo specchio. Alle cicatrici? O alla verità?
