*Warning* Strong language and sexual situations. Ends in MAJOR cliffhanger. Not for the faint of heart. :)
Beautiful heiress Dalilah Gallagher, a former child art prodigy, has lost her way. Harsh criticism in her formative years has left her floundering and without the artistic voice that once centered her life. Now, at the age of 20, she has spent the last nine years trying to reclaim what she lost.
Without passion in her life, Dalilah retreats to a world of casual sex, drinking too much, and nude modeling. An indiscretion leads her into the obsessive clutches of Blake Nottingham, a billionaire who wants to possess her.
His singular obsession with young Dalilah leads him to commission a nude painting of her. The artist? Luke Roberts, a handsome painter who, despite his prodigious talents, has not yet gained a foothold in the busy New York City art scene. Luke is everything that Dalilah never knew she needed, and, once she meets him, she cannot imagine living without him.
As the two young artists fall in love, Dalilah finds her artistic voice once more. Yet Luke continues to struggle to find the attention he so richly deserves. Dalilah has a plan to help Luke, one that leads to a dangerous game of deceit that puts Dalilah into Nottingham's clutches.
Nottingham isn't easily manipulated, though, and things go seriously awry for Dalilah.
What happens when the manipulated becomes the manipulator?
Will Dalilah's lies cause her to lose the one person that means everything her?
