What she's wanted... Sydney Warren is a successful painter of erotic landscapes--just the artful fantasies of a woman whose own life has been stripped of passion. Though she has stayed loyal to her boyfriend, Max, he's unable to ignite the sparks they once shared, leaving Sydney wanting. Then comes the stranger, a work of art himself, and everything changes. is what she's getting... With chestnut hair, mesmerizing green eyes, and the perfect body, Colm Hennessy is every woman's fantasy. He too is aroused, and more intrigued by the beautiful artist than he expected to be--because it wasn't supposed to happen this way. For there's something about Colm that Sydney doesn't know... in the ultimate game of control. Colm is only pretending to be a model. He's been hired by Max to seduce her--a twisted scheme to test her fidelity. But Max never imagined that Colm would feel something real. As Sydney and Colm's intimacy grows, as passions neither expected are unleashed, the stakes in a cruel game are raised--and desire isn't the only thing set to spiral out of control.
