A lush gothic tale that begs for reading...I couldn't put it down." —New York Times bestselling author Sarah Maclean I was obssessed. It was as if he called to me, demanding I reach out and touch the brushstrokes of color swirled onto the canvas. It was the most exquisite portrait I'd ever seen—everything about Lord Denbury was unbelievable...utterly breathtaking and eerily lifelike. There was a reason for that. Because despite what everyone said, Denbury never had committed suicide. He was alive. Trapped within his golden frame. I've crossed over into his world within the painting, and I've seen what dreams haunt him. They haunt me too. He and I are inextricably linked—bound together to watch the darkness seeping through the gas-lit cobblestone strets of Manhattan. And unless I can free him soon, things will only get Darker Still.

I enjoyed Natalie as a narrator, but there was far too much insta-love going on with Lord Denby, not to mention childish dialogue. For fans of Oscar Wilde's DORIAN GRAY, this is a poor comparison. Also...
I liked it, but I read it in such fits and starts I never really was "into it." I liked the atmosphere and the idea, but it felt a little (hmm, what word am I looking for here) thin, yes, that's it. It reminded me of the Diviners, but it didn't grab me the way that book did. I'll definitely continue...
A+++++ I LOVED this book and I'm on to the next, The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart. Above par writing with a great story.....I fell in love with Natalie, Jonathan and Mrs. Northe, great characters.
It is generally thought that all men like their women silent. So it should not be to difficult for a mute young woman such as Natalie Stewart to fit straight into New York City's frivolous society. But Natalie longs for more than to catch a man and embroider. She longs for a life like those she's re...
