The Art Lover by Maggie Wells

Mitch Jameson and Kelsey Tacato's book

The Art Lover

By Maggie Wells

Book Blurb:
Starving artist Kelsey Tecato takes being The Templeton Museum’s artist in residence a little too literally. By day, she puts on a show of painting for the crowds that shuffle through the galleries, but at night, her muse runs wild.

Mitch Jameson is a guy’s guy. A cop moonlighting as a security guard, he has little use for the artsy-fartsy stuff, but the mysterious Ms. Tecato’s sexy portraits call to him.

So does an interior alarm.

When Officer Jameson goes to investigate, he finds a paint-splattered goddess working on a self-portrait—in the nude.

A couple tubes of paint and a roll in the drop cloths later, free-spirited Kelsey helps Officer Jameson discover his passion for art.

One of my favourite erotic romance authors, Maggie Wells released this little gem a few weeks ago. The Art Lover is a hot novella that was a perfect read for me. I was just in-between books with the suspense series that I am reading and The Art Lover got me all revved up. 

If you follow my reviews you know that I have a love for fictional heroines that know what they want and then take it. I adore reading about strong women and I totally connected with The Art Lover's heroine, Kelsey. In fact that confidence is what draws me to so many of Maggie Wells' books.

I found The Art Lover erotic of course but more than that, I found it very sensual. The idea of body painting, teasing with brushes and watching their intimate connection reflected in a giant gilt-framed mirror set a decadent mood. Put that all of that carnal deliciousness together in a museum backdrop setting and I was in heaven enjoying this classy sultry story.

Hmmm. I don't remember seeing her name before. Sounds good to me! Never read one with body painting that I can recall. Interesting.
