A society gentleman with a secret. An art expert who can expose him. An attraction neither of them can deny.
Alice Donnelly prefers paintings of medieval people to actual people, and classical art to the nonsense coming from contemporary artists. She also has a healthy disdain for the rich and ignorant who hire her to curate their collections. But her family depends on her paychecks, and so she reluctantly accepts a commission to assess the collection of one of Britain’s most venerable aristocratic families.
When she meets the handsome and charismatic Geoffrey on her flight to London, she makes it clear she’s immune to his charms. She has no time for romance. Not when she’s starting the biggest job of her career.
Except it turns out it’s Geoffrey’s family who has hired her, and now Alice must spend all of her working hours trying not to fall for her new boss. But much like a master painting, Geoffrey’s layers draw her in against her better judgment.
As Geoffrey’s secrets unravel, can Alice trust the privileged aristocrat with an artist’s soul to see past her own baggage? Or is she just another way for him to rebel against his family?
