Syrian Blakeney has shown the ton society the prudish side of herself, and only her brother knows her true nature….that she is a loving, caring sister. When her brother paints a portrait of her in the garden next to her favorite flowers, she hates it immediately. That’s only because it shows the face she puts on for the public and she wants him to destroy it.

Earl of Wrotham, Lord Harrison has lived his life from one moment to the next with enjoyment of women. One night, a year ago, he spied Syrian dancing in the rain and he fell in love with her. His dreams are now filled with her and no other woman can satisfy him, which means he will do whatever it takes to marry her.

After reading Portrait of His Obsession, I felt as if this story is a cat and mouse tale of the two main characters. Although there are not many secondary characters, Harrison and Syrian provided much laughter and frustration for me with their love-hate relationship.

This is my first read from Ms. Pillow and there is not a lot of evil plotting done, except for Harrison and Syrian against each other. I was very entertained by their antics of trying to outdo one another and I loved the detailed description of the garden scene. If you are looking for hot steamy sex, then this is a story for you.

This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.
