Sonia is looking for more books like this one! I don’t even know that I “know” gothic erotic romance. Though I think maybe one book I read many years ago (early indie days) was exactly that. About a painting… very popular author (back in our early indie days).
She’s in a mansion (I think she’s being painted?), and he is reclusive, obviously wealthy… and his dead wife haunts him. Or was it her? (internally? externally? I can’t remember 😉 OR I won’t say).
