Gwen falls hard for globetrotting artist, Adam Straker, a man as entrancing as his evocative paintings. When she unearths a stunning nude painting tucked away in Adam’s studio, the modern masterpiece launches Adam to stardom. But the more acclaim Adam receives, the more agitated some others become—including a New York billionaire publisher, a savvy Miami art dealer, and Adam's own business partner. Even Gwen's mother grows increasingly resentful.

When Gwen discovers a shocking link between The Nude and her own childhood, she begins a hunt for the truth, but no one is talking, not even Adam. Her determined foraging unearths three bizarre secrets about the painting, and puts her love for Adam on the line. Moreover, it resurrects a nemesis thought long gone.
