About the Book

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?

About the Author
Holly Newman

Holly Newman is a pseudonym for Holly Thompson. She lives in Florida seven miles from the Gulf Coast with Ken and their six cats. Holly decided to be a writer when she was in the fifth grade and filled notebooks with stories—until a mean-spirited high school teacher told her she had no talent for writing. Crushed, for several years she stopped writing, but the writing bug didn’t go away. Her first book won first place in the University of Texas at Dallas fiction writing competition and was first runner-up for the Rita award from Romance Writers of America.

Holly’s interest in the Regency period came while in high school and she volunteered to re-shelve returned books at the community library. Every week there were Georgette Heyer novels to be shelved. Curious, she checked one out and became immersed in the world of the regency.

Fast forward ten years. When attending Science Fiction Conventions she met people who read science fiction; but also enjoyed the works of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, just as she did. They liked these books so much that they wore regency costumes at the science fiction convention. They even had regency era dancing on the convention program. These Science Fiction readers and writers knew a lot about the regency era. Intrigued, Holly did research on the era and quickly went from being a casual regency reader to a regency history buff. After that, with encouragement from science fiction authors, it was just a small step to writing regencies.
