Publisher Description

Midnight in Paris meets Night at the Museum! A gorgeous standalone forbidden romance with magical elements! Fall in love with The Muse, a sweeping romance set in a modern day Paris that’s full of magic, art, mysteries, and passion from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely! 

The first time a woman stepped out of a painting, I thought I was seeing things.

The second time, I thought I was going mad.

The night she emerged from a Renoir, I felt something else entirely — a deep stirring of desire, and the wish to get to know the brilliant beauty who’s been trapped inside a painted garden for years.

She can only come out at night in the Musée d'Orsay, where I work. There, after hours, we wander through galleries, with the Van Goghs, the Monets, and the Toulouse Lautrecs the only witnesses to our midnight kisses and, soon, our trysts.

She opens her heart to me, and I learn her story. 

But she keeps secrets too, ones I hope to unravel. Why she was trapped. Why Renoir is hunting her. And why artwork in famous museums across the world is starting to disintegrate.

Why I, too, seem to be the only person who can repair the masterpieces.

As I fall deeper for the woman who’s trapped in a museum, I’m caught up in another side of Paris after dark, one inhabited by forgers, ghosts of famous artists and, impossibly, by Muses.

But someone is after the woman I’m falling in love with, and it’s up to me to save her…even if it means losing everything I’ve found with her.

CeeCeeHouston ,

Enigmatic mystery and suspense… And a love story with a difference.

The Muse by Lauren Blakely is something completely different from this favorite author of mine. Romance, sweet sexy moments, trips down memory lane and the sweeping, magical wonders of a bygone era in the French past. A Muse isn’t just an enigmatic, imaginary being in this book, it’s part and parcel of the whole story.
Julien and Clio weren’t your usual meet-cute couple, although their first time together on a page had all the elements of one, plus a dashing of the magical too. Maybe even unbelievable, but Ms Blakely carried it off with aplomb.
I adored Clio and had all the swoony moments with Julien. This is a story I will want to read again and again. You will to, so One-Click this hauntingly beautiful tale today.
