Amazon Series, Book 1

Amazon Ink

The first in a thrilling series from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the Nine Worlds series following an Amazonian woman in modern-day Wisconsin as she struggles to solve two mysterious and shocking murders.

It’s been ten years since Melanippe Saka left her Amazon tribe in order to create a normal life for her daughter Harmony. True, running a tattoo parlor in Madison, Wisconsin, while living with your Amazon warrior mother and priestess grandmother is not everyone’s idea of normal, but Mel thinks she’s succeeded at blending in as human. Turns out she’s wrong.

Someone knows all about her, someone who’s targeting young Amazonian girls, and no way is Mel going to let Harmony become tangled in this deadly web. With her motherly instinct in overdrive, Ms. Melanippe Saka is quite a force…even when she’s facing a barrage of distractions—including a persistent detective whose interest in Mel goes beyond professional, a sexy tattoo artist with secrets of his own, and a seriously angry Amazon queen who views Mel as a prime suspect. To find answers, Mel will have to do the one thing she swore she’d never do: embrace her powers and admit that you can take the girl out of the tribe…but you can’t take the tribe out of the girl.
