Museum director Mandy Cooper is obsessed with nineteenth-century artist Catherine Burke, and the artist's erotically charged relationship with Atacar, her enthralling American Indian lover.

She's having a heated affair herself?with Jared Cabrillo, Atacar's handsome great-great nephew who knows precisely what it takes to seduce a woman?

at age 50, after 30+ years of marriage, life can get stale. Health, children, jobs, aging parents, a lot of winter; it all gets in the way,and sometimes you just want to sleep( too tired for sex). This book brought me back to how I felt before the rest of the world came crashing down. To feel about someone the way Mandi and Jared feel for each other, the way that Catherine and Atacar's love was felt for generations, and to be able to show each other in erotic ways---that made this book hard to put down. I also learned alot of new ideas to try with my true love; I hope he will enjoy them as much as I expect to.

In a time where these erotica books are prevalent it is nice to read a book which reminds me why I began reading romance novels. This book was one of the best contemporary romance novels I've read in a really long time. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down until I finished! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves romance and the erotic. I hope this author writes another really soon, preferably about KiKi! Thanks for a great read!!!

Santa Fe Women¿s Art Museum Director Mandy Cooper looks forward to satiating her addiction for ¿dirty sex with a dirty boy¿. The prime and proper Mandy knows that since she met artist and notorious celeb Jared Cabrillo that he is on her mind and body all the time. The only exception to her Cabrillo icon that consumes her brain is her obsession with the relationship between late nineteenth-century artist Catherine Burke and Native American outlaw Atacar her lover¿s ancestors. Whereas Mandy fears Jared will leave her for his next encounter Jared hides the truth from her that he loves her out of his fear of the emotion. Mandy knows that her favorite painting by Catherine is her portrait of Atacar, the man the artist loved she wishes Jared would do one of her with the same level of passion. However it is an 1895 journal kept by Mandy that wakes Jared up to embrace his deepest feelings, his love for Mandy before it is too late. This heated contemporary romance uses a journal to tell a forbidden late nineteenth century love that becomes a matchmaker for the director and the artist. The two pairings are filled with warmth, passion and heat. All four key players seem genuine yet the two eras distinctive form one another. Cherie Feather provides an engaging hot tale of loves in 1895 and 2008.------------ Harriet Klausner

To save someone their money....if you want to read nothing other than cheaply written sex and a shadow of a story line......go for it! I can not believe i spent so much money on this book! I was going to purchase Submission by the same author and read that this was the beginning of that story and this should be read 1st......so i started to. I can't even finish it. Very dissapointed.

Double shot. A steamy novel with an emotional mini novel within.
