Editorial Reviews

Fred Armisen
“Nicole Audrey Spector does it exactly right.
Funny and hot at the same time. ”
Paul Shaffer
“Parody is only great when the parodist is in love with the object of the parody. This is truly great. Nicole got each shade just right—but what does it say about her mind?”
Frederic Tuten
“Totally engaging, witty, sly, sexy and pure FUN. Oscar Wilde, Frank Harris, Pauline Reage, make room!”
Avi Steinberg
“ If Oscar Wilde had had access to youporn.com this is definitely the book he would have written. With painterly precision, Miss
Spector has transformed this tale into some seriously arty smut. From the first wetted brush to the last passionate brushstroke, Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray will blow your mind, come on your face, and break your heart. ”
Lynda Schor
“Oscar couldn't have done better if he'd written his own "good parts."

Fifty
Shades of Dorian Gray
is fun, and a double turn-on--exciting writing AND smoldering sex.”

Ken Kalfus
“A
hilarious pastiche, and sexy in its own right. I'll never be able to read E.L.
James with a straight face again.”

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

The studio was filled with the rich odor of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden there came through the open door the heavy scent of lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn. The soft breeze, infused with scent, tickled
Rosemary Hall's neck, stirring the fine hairs on her nape.

It was certainly peculiar, she thought: this new awareness of feeling in her body. Even painting felt different. It was no longer just a preoccupation of mind and coordination, but a physical experience. The wetted brush was as sentient as her hand itself and when it touched the canvas her body stirred as though to come to life with each careful stroke.

And the daydreams she was having...oh, but at least those she could blink away. The dreams at night were the worst. They weren’t nightmares, no –
anything but, really – yet they left her deeply unsettled. Night after night she awoke in a feverish sweat,
her hips writhing on their own accord, the bed sheet balled in a coil and clenched between her legs. It was so…real.
Like he’d really been there.
Drenched in sweat she felt his phantom kisses linger on her cheeks. Wherever were those dreams coming from?
Rosemary wondered. She avoided the answer. This was no time to get carried away with lust, she thought, blushing as the word crossed her mind – a quick scurry across then back into her subconscious.
