An honorable artist

Benedict Pennington's greatest ambition is not to paint a masterpiece, but to make the country's greatest artworks accessible to all. His success in persuading a noted philanthropist to donate his collection of Old Master paintings to England's first national art museum brings his dream tantalizingly close to reality--until Viscount Dulcie, once the object of Benedict's illicit adolescent desire, begins to court the donor's granddaughter, set on winning the paintings for himself.

A hedonistic viscount

Sinclair Milne, Viscount Dulcie, prefers collecting innovative art and dallying with handsome men to burdening himself with anything as dull as a wife. But when rivals hint that Dulcie's refusal to pursue wealthy Miss Adler and her paintings is due to lingering tender feelings for Benedict Pennington, Dulcie vows to prove them wrong. And if wooing Miss Adler away from the holier-than-thou painter also gets his matchmaking father off his back? Even better . . .

Can a sinner and a saint both win at love?

But when Benedict is dragooned into painting his portrait, Dulcie finds himself once again inexplicably drawn to the intense artist. Can the sinful viscount entice a wary Benedict into a casual liaison, one that will put neither their reputations, nor their feelings, at risk? Or will the not-so-saintly painter demand something far more vulnerable--his heart?

About the Author

Bliss Bennet writes smart, edgy novels for readers who love history as much as they love romance. Her Regency-set historical romance series, The Penningtons, has been praised by the Historical Novel Society’s Indie Reviews as “a series well worth following”; her books have been described by USA Today as “savvy, sensual, and engrossing,” by Heroes and Heartbreakers as “captivating,” and by The Reading Wench as having “everything you want in a great historical romance.” Her latest book is A Sinner without a Saint.

Despite being born and bred in New England, Bliss finds herself fascinated by the history of that country across the pond, particularly the politically-volatile period known as the English Regency. Though she’s visited Britain several times, Bliss continues to make her home in New England, along with her husband, daughter, and two monstrously fluffy black cats.

Bliss’s mild-mannered alter ego, Jackie Horne, writes about the intersection of gender and genre at the Romance Novels for Feminists blog.
