Catalina Geldbach, born and raised in Wisconsin, and is a Latina. A teacher and a mother of three demanding cats, she is ready to take her life to the next stage … the one where she makes decisions. Taking life by the horns, she chooses what name she'll be called, receives her first tattoo, and now it's time to get a man.
Derek Schrizer, a retired Marine, straggly hair, long beard, heavily inked, local boy has come home. He's an HVAC guy who volunteers at the local fire department, hooks up with plenty of ladies, but none make him want more. Sitting in a tattoo parlor's chair, he reconnects with Cat, a gorgeous, curvy, beauty, and life is looking better.
They were friends who grew more intimate as they grew older. No words of waiting were spoken when they finished school, but their hearts saw things differently.
Note from the Author: Hot Tamale, a contemporary erotic romance + BBW and tattoos at 26k words, was a part of the Curved Lines Collection, and this is its first release on its own.
