Helena Littledean has a secret, a most scandalous painting she bought in discretion and keeps hidden from prying eyes. She’s a young lady after all, and the Adam in her painting isn’t hiding a thing behind his fig leaf. When she finally meets the Earl of Norwalk, her heart catches in her throat. It’s her Adam—the embodiment of her closely held dreams standing before her…
Adam Waterbury, the Earl of Norwalk, has been trying to find Adam in the Garden of Eden for over twelve years. The artist, his maternal uncle, promised he’d never sell it, not to Adam or to anyone else. It was his masterpiece, after all. But ultimately, he sold it.
A murder visits Helena’s family home, forcing her family to leave, but not before she’s etched onto Adam’s every waking thought. Now they are both haunted by images of the other. And then he discovered it is she who owns THE painting.
Now the question is, can Adam destroy the painting without losing Helena? If he helps solve the murder and save the Littledean business, could they come to An Artful Compromise?
