This impossibly beautiful man with old-fashioned charm who dresses in clothing from another century seems the perfect partner for illicit romantic encounters.
But Thomas Brand knows that Dorian Gray is actually Hayden March, a man with the extraordinary ability to make people immortal by painting their portraits. Unfortunately, too many of the wrong people know who Dorian is, too, and they either want to use his power to extend their lives or they want to kill him for possessing a power they believe is too god-like.
Unfortunately for them, Thomas is a Guardian. Sworn to protect the Painters at all costs, Thomas will do whatever it takes to keep Dorian safe. Even if Dorian resists him. Even if Thomas sees past the clever words and the handsome face to the tortured man within…and recognizes Dorian for the danger to Thomas’ heart that he is.
One man wants to protect her. The other to taste her. Maybe they should share.
