About Scarlett Cole
She believes everybody deserves their love story to be told and loves her heroes on the rough and rugged side...and usually tall (because she married one of those 6ft 6" men you read about in romance!). She's an A-type personality and Scorpio star sign, so good luck getting her to do anything she doesn't want to.
When she isn't writing, she's happy to talk hot men and expensive shoes while drinking a cold gin and tonic. Don't bring up olives. As far as Scarlett is concerned, they are the devil's food. As long as you don't bring up olives, she's happy to hear from any time.
Rep'd by Louise Fury at The Bent Agency, and published by St. Martin's Press, JC Lattés, Ullstein, and Muza.
She'd love to hear from you on:

Connor knows he and Emerson don't make sense on paper. Too many differences between them--and one big secret that could destroy Emerson's family business tells him to cut and run. But for once in his life, Connor doesn't care about messy or imperfect--because the fact is, Emerson is the one perfect thing he needs in his life. Now if he can only convince her . . .

In Scarlett Cole's The Strongest Steel, Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning. The scars that decorate her back are just one more reminder of things she'd rather forget, the past she wants to leave far behind her, but before she can move on, she needs him.
Tattoo artist Trent Andrews has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And there's no way in hell he's going to turn Harper away. Not when a swirling mix of tenderness and desire slams into him every time he sees her. She stirs feelings in him he thought were long gone... if he can only get past her carefully constructed defenses.
As each session at Second Circle Tattoos gives Harper new ink to cover up old demons, it brings her closer and closer to Trent. His lingering touches seduce her, making her believe in a life without fear, where she can be happy, whole, in love. But when cryptic messages start appearing on Harper's phone, strange deliveries arrive at her door, and Second Circle is vandalized, Harper is convinced that her ex-boyfriend has tracked her down, and worse, that he knows about Trent. She ran from her past once before; this time will she have the strength to fight back?
