Julia Westgard commissioned a nude portrait to regain her self-worth after years of a loveless, repressive marriage to her late husband. But the private portrait puts her directly in the path of Morgan St. Claire, one of the Marlborough Set’s most notorious seducers. A man who doesn’t take no for an answer.

From the moment Morgan sees Julia’s portrait, he’s determined to make her another conquest. But the woman he meets is a far cry from the image on canvas. What begins as a simple exercise in seduction quickly evolves into a quest to reveal the true Julia. With each sensual encounter, he employs every weapon of seduction at his disposal in hopes of making Julia see she really is the woman in Love’s Portrait.

“Wow. Just wow. This is a story to wrap yourself around on a long, cold winter’s evening. You’ll even be able to turn down the heat (leaving more funds available for the book budget!), as this scorcher provides plenty of steamy passion all by itself.”
