Butterfly Tattoo: Ultimate Edition

“Love is real, it is painful, it is powerful, and it is brave, much like this book.” – Sarah Wendell, Smart Bitches Trashy Books

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.

In this Ultimate Edition of Butterfly Tattoo, get the inside scoop on how Michael and Rebecca’s love story came to be, and its impact on LGBT fiction in one of Deidre’s favorite interviews. Discover new reader discussion questions, and read an exclusive, previously deleted scene.
