The gentlemen with the wicked brown eyes - the beautiful young man whose image had been immortalized more than two centuries before by the artist's brush - seemed much more than pigment and paint and canvas. When best-selling author Rachael Lafferty sees the painting on the auction block, the beautiful young man captures her heart and her writer's imagination. She knows she has to have the painting. It would make the Victorian townhouse she was restoring complete...more complete than she ever could have guessed.
For, when she brings her prize home and lovingly hangs it on the wall, Dorian Gray's trapped soul steps out of the painting and into her life.
Cold. Dark. His much-deserved hell. Those were the only things Dorian had known for more than a century. But now, impossibly, he finds himself in his own home once more, though a century has passed. He feels warmth once more. And love - his love for Rachael makes him corporeal to her. A love that just might redeem his jaded soul, make him into a new man...
Make him alive again...
But his presence in the house stirs jealously. Someone dear to Rachael wants the ghost gone from Rachael's life - someone who knows just how to get the job done.
And that person won't stop until Dorian Gray is again banished from this earth.
