Last semester, Romy
escaped from an abusive relationship with the guy she’d thought was the
man of her dreams. This semester she’s putting herself back together,
determined to reclaim her passion for art and for life. When she signs
up for a painting class at the local art co-op, the possibility of
passion becomes very real -- in the form of her teacher, Caleb. Both
mysterious and seriously hot, Caleb bares his soul on his canvases, and
Romy’s fascinated by what she sees.
Caleb is just trying to keep
his head above water. Caring for his traumatized, unstable sister is
getting harder every day, and his paintings are so dark and bleak that
no one is buying. Teaching classes at the co-op is no longer enough, and
now he’s going to have to sell more than just his art to the wealthy,
sex-starved women in his classes. But when Romy comes along, she makes
everything more complicated. She sees the truth in his paintings -- a
truth no one else has realized, until now.
Romy and Caleb might
have a real shot together -- one that could heal them both. But when
ghosts from their pasts re-emerge, determined to keep them apart, will
they be strong enough to hold on to each other?
