Portrait of Passion is my first book by Lynne Barron. I'm doing a little happy dance because I can add another author to my follow list. I didn't really expect much from an author I had never heard of but jeeze, what a fantastic surprise. Portrait of Passion is a well written book, a very smooth read, no choppiness. The characters are well developed and amazing. I loved them! Beatrice and Simon's story is loaded with drama, suspense, humor and sizzling hot sexy bits. This is a book that's hard to put down. Portrait of Passion is book 1 of the Idyllwild Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I enjoyed Portrait of Passion from cover to cover and I look forward to reading more from Lynne Barron soon.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
