Duncan Kerr is the art director of Enamored Press, an erotic romance publisher based in Seattle. An open submissions call for new artists yields an imaginative book cover with rich details and bold colors that catches his interest. After a few more samples of work and some e-­mails, Duncan is determined to hire the talented young artist on a permanent basis. But Ruben Winterbottom isn’t an average freelance artist.

So he sets out to coax the young man out of his shy shell. Falling in love with a broken boy, however, might be the first draft of heartbreak.
