Fearless by Annie Jocoby
Beautiful heiress Dalilah Gallagher is a child artistic prodigy who has lost her way. Because of harsh criticism in her formative years, she found that she had lost her artistic voice, and, now age 20, she has spent 9 years trying to get it back.
Her struggles leads her to nude modeling gigs in New York City. These gigs hopefully will help her find her passion for art once more. What she does not expect is that they will also help her find the one person who might be able to help her regain her artistic voice.
Luke Roberts has the opposite background from Dalilah. Raised by a solidly working class fisherman, Luke is a broke and brilliant artist who has yet to get his big break. His gifts attract the attention of a wealthy benefactor, Blake Nottingham, whose own fascination with Dalilah leads him to commission Luke to present him with a painting of her.
As Luke and Dalilah's professional relationship gradually leads to love, Dalilah finds herself playing a dangerous game of deceit. Her motivation is to help Luke gain a platform for his work, so she attempts to manipulate Nottingham into giving him this.
But when the manipulated becomes the manipulator, Dalilah finds that she has gone too far.
What happens next may spell the end of Dalilah's relationship with the man of her dreams, and the beginning of her worst nightmare.
