*Blog Tour & Giveaway!* REBEL (Dead Man's Ink, #1) by Callie Hart


✦ EXCERPT #1 ✦

“You gonna sit down or what?”

I sit down. Arguing with him would be futile. We sit there, side by side, staring off down the arrow-straight road, and for a moment I don’t hate him. He pulls a cell phone out of his pocket and taps something into it, and then he turns to face me, frowning slightly.

“You believe in vengeance?”

“You mean like revenge?”

He shakes his head. “Revenge is a selfish act. Retaliation for something. Vengeance is a different thing altogether. It’s about obtaining justice, usually for someone who can’t claim it for themselves.”

This is an odd line of questioning but I decide I’ll bite. Maybe I wouldn’t if he were being a jerk like he was a couple of hours ago, but that’s not what’s happening. He’s pensive, the live wire that apparently runs through him dulled for the moment. “I don’t know,” I say. “Probably, in that case.”

“What if I simplified the question?

What if I say, do you believe in justice?

“Then, yes, I do believe.”

✦ EXCERPT #2 ✦

“It’s time for you to tell me your name.” She arches an eyebrow at me. I can just imagine her getting them waxed in some fancy fucking boutique beauty parlor in Seattle, run by Asian hipsters with shaved undercuts and thick glasses. She seems like the type. “Why do you want to know?” she asks, cockiness filling her voice.

“I’m asking because I need something to call you. And if you don’t tell me your name, I’m going to be forced to call you One Eighty-One. And I’m guessing you won’t like being called One Eighty-One.”

“Why would you call me that?”

“Because that’s the reference Hector Ramirez gave you when you uploaded your picture onto his skin site. Hector tags his girls chronologically. The first girl he sold was number one. The fifty-third girl he sold was tagged fifty-three. Using that logic, guess how many girls he sold before he tagged you one eight one?”

“So a hundred and eighty other women came before me?” She looks like she’s going to throw up.

“Exactly. And he hasn’t been caught. The police haven’t raided his place out there in the desert. No one has reported his website. No one came to rescue the one hundred and eighty other girls who came before you, and no one is coming for you, either. So if you want reminding of that every single time I call you one eight—“

“Sophia!” She screws her eyes shut, clenching her jaw. “My name is fucking Sophia, motherfucker.” She spits out the words like they’re poison. When she looks at me again, I can see the fury burning in the dark depths of her dark brown eyes. She comes alive when she’s angry. A thrill of adrenalin stabs through me, sending mixed signals to my cock; provoking such a violent reaction from her is provoking an entirely different reaction from me. For the first time, I see her. Fucking Sophia. I don’t see her as a means to an end—a potential way to take down the bastard who killed my uncle. I see her. I see her as a woman, and she is beautiful.

“Alright, Sophia. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”



I’m a huge Callie Hart fan. I mean, ‘I see her name and download immediately’, kind of fan. I was so thrilled to be able to get an ARC of her newest release, Rebel, I could hardly control myself. But I have to be honest, once it showed up on my kindle, I got nervous. What if it’s not what I expected? There's no way I can love someone more than I love Zeth from her Blood and Roses series, so what if I am disappointed by Rebel? …Silly blogger!

 Callie Hart’s writing is something special. She hooks you on the first sentence and her writing flows so easily that you can’t stop reading…really, you can’t stop! She has the perfect mix of description versus dialog making you feel like you are living inside the story...and you want to be. 

Rebel is another amazing beginning to a series of books that will take you on a messed up, wild ride and you will love every second and crave more! Please Callie, WE NEED MORE!

This story proves this author is able to continue the level of suspense and excitement that she has become known for.  Look out reading world, Callie Hart is about to own you…and I can’t wait to watch her do it!



I loved this book hard! I was already a fan of Ms. Hart’s, but after reading Rebel, it confirms & solidifies my love for this woman’s stories and her writing style. When I hear the name Callie Hart, I immediately think: rock star author.

We first met Rebel in the Blood & Roses series. I was immediately intrigued and was dying to know more of his story. I could not wait to sink my claws into this book! Rebel is the first of three books in the Dead Man's Ink series. From the first few pages, I was sucked into Rebel’s dark & twisted world – and I loved every minute of it. This author has a way of telling a story that gets you so wrapped up in it, you swear that you've been pulled inside the pages and are living the tale yourself.

Rebel is a bad-ass MC president who will have you swooning because he is the perfect blend of sexy, cockiness, charm and heart. You won’t be able to help yourself from falling for this confident, tough-as-nails, beautiful blue-eyed man. Alexis is pretty amazing, too. Considering the circumstances she’s in, she remains strong and sassy. Sparks fly when Rebel & Alexis meet and the chemistry is undeniable. 

I am convinced I would give this author’s grocery list 
5 hearts. What she writes is highly addictive. I finished this book 2 days ago and I’m still reeling over it. I keep wanting to pick up my Kindle and read more Rebel, only to realize I’m done. I am so anxious to read the next book in the series – it can’t get here fast enough for me. I highly recommend this book if you like to read well-written, action-packed stories that will leave you craving more. Absolutely amazing!


♥ Rebel and Sophia's story. ♥

The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.

❥ Sophia

Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on revenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.

In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.

❥ Rebel

What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up.

Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him.

Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...


✦ About the Author ✦

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
