Cover Artist: Sheri (

Rating: 5.00 of 5 Stars


Ainsley “Lee” Dencourt was born with her future drawn out as heir of the Dencourt Gallery in Washington, DC. She has mastered both fine art and the art of brushing off the responsibilities of her life. When the death of her father shatters her carefree world, Lee is caught between her decisions and her desires as she struggles to preserve his life’s legacy.

For Morgan, the only thing more important than her family is art. Morgan has put her heart and soul into her education and her future—it’s what got her to Yale and to Paris. She can’t allow anything or anyone to come between her and her dreams of success. So why is it that every time Morgan gets a handle on life a dangerously sexy and hopelessly frustrating woman from her past appears and turns her world upside down?

From the City of Lights to the Nation’s Capital, Lee and Morgan search for their place in the world of art. Is that place together—or will fear, pride, and deceit destroy what they’ve found with each other?


Art Lover in the Making????

This book is very well written and fits the Bold Strokes Books brand perfectly!

I admit at first I had a bit of a problem with the leads being so young but it really is necessary to the plot. I am not into art really but the story moved me so much, was so descriptive and sensual that I had to look up some of the artwork the author so lovingly refers to. I can see how they would be inspirational.

The characters are believable. I liked how they had realistic self doubts, were not afraid to cuss when necessary and were not perfect. Very refreshing. The sex was yummy and a part of the story, not just tossed in for the sake of having a sex scene.

The whole book felt very present, now, real….I’m not really sure how to explain it, just like it could be happening in this place in time… The descriptions were vivid, great story line, likable characters, a solid 5 stars and one of the best romances I’ve read this year.
