Family Portraitby Sharon Sobel
Lady Amelie Wainwoode’s secret identity is secure until the arrival of the scandalous Lord Stratfield. Determined to protect her good name and clandestine art career she counters his blackmail. Now she must leave the sanctuary of her aunt’s home in London for his Lake District estate at White Ash to fulfill the bargain. Her presence unveils more than the hushed history which binds their families.
David Ashworth, Lord Stratfield, has endured deceit, censure and scandals. Even so, he does not hesitate to manipulate rumors of his disreputable behavior to his best advantage. He gives the daughter of the man he loathed for years no choice—comply with his plans and accept his terms or he will expose and ruin her.

Meet the Author
A writer for most of her life, Sharon Sobel is the author of several novels, short stories, and works of fiction. She earned her PhD in English Language and Literature from Brandeis University and is currently a professor of English at Norwalk Community College in Connecticut.
Business and pleasure have taken her and her husband, and their three children on travels throughout the world, where she does research for her writing. Other interests, include serving on the Board of Trustees of the local Historical Society, and the board of the newly-formed Connecticut and Lower New York (COLONY) Chapter of Romance Writers of America.
Though a native New Yorker, Sharon has lived with her family for almost twenty years in an eighteenth century Connecticut farmhouse, surrounded by stone walls, old plantings, and overgrown meadows. Her computer, somewhat newer than the antiques surrounding it, is rarely turned off.
'Family Portrait,' in its untried primary draft, was one of the first romance novels Sharon wrote. At the time, Lady Violet Stratfield seemed comfortably, joyfully, middle-aged to her. Now, somehow, the lady has become marvelously youthful and very wise.
