A duke scarred, a painter with light in her eyes, and the portrait that changes their lives...
When Miss Elinor Thorbourne's artist father falls seriously ill, she must do what she never thought she'd have to do: finish a painting in his place. Only, this one is the portrait of one very particular, very scarred Duke.
Widely known as a disgrace to his own family, Seth Hislop, newly-appointed Duke of Worthwood, is in no mood to entertain guests, much less a painter that his mother insists must complete his portrait. Especially when the artist is a beautiful lady that makes him even more conscious of the scars marring his visage.
Seth's demons aren't strong enough to keep him away from Elinor, and as the portrait progresses so do their feelings for each other. But sometimes love is not enough and when priceless heirlooms start going missing, all clues point to Elinor being the thief. And not only that...
