"Your wish," the masculine voice spoke again, "and your pleasure, are my command."
Amanda slowly turned her head to find her picture-perfect gentleman standing in a darkened corner. "Did I fall and hit my head?" The question hung in the air.
"I do not believe so," he walked closer into the candlelight. "I am the Genie of the Portrait."
Amanda shook her head in confusion. Whoever, or whatever he was, he looked even more handsome than the man in the drawing. He was tall and built. His old-fashioned clothes added a certain sensuality to his appearance as did his rugged facial features that were topped with jet-black hair. "And do I get three wishes?" she whispered in hopes that this luscious mirage would not up and disappear.
"Three nights," his voice was laced with a faint British accent, "and then my portrait will be no more."

The Genie of the Portrait is a short, cute piece of escapist paranormal romance. This is one of those stories where you just kick up your heels and go with the flow. Amanda's boyfriend finally proposes to her, but in the most unromantic way possible. The engagement doesn't last long, thanks to her new fiance's appetite for trashy flings. After the relationship implodes, Amanda finds herself alone and unhappy. Until a handsome man appears, released from an old painting. Turns out the man, William, is a genie-like entity, there not to grant three wishes, but three nights of pleasure. And he does it well. But Amanda isn't an empty pleasure kind of gal, and she wants more than three nights with William. Her determination to help him escape his curse changes everything. Like I said, this is a cute story, a great length for one of those nights when you just want to relax for a bit, and enjoy a little out-of-the-ordinary story. It's been given a heat rating of 2, which fits the story nicely. Want a short but sweet story? Try this one. Joey, The One Hundred Romances Project
I like stories with hot sex and revenge. This has both.
