Mix a matchmaking emperor, a battle-hardened general, a beautiful hero-worshiping slave, and an artist who uses paintbrushes as sex toys and what do you get?
You get Victory Portrait, the fourth book in the Pride of Uttor series.
I'm so pumped for this story! Originally free online as a short, it was just shy of 12,000 words. An added POV and many pages of development later, it stands at 78,000 words of art, war, and two men destined for each other--if only they could meet.
Darius has no patience for portraits...but he might be tempted to stay for the sittings for a chance to gaze upon the most beautiful young man in Uttor.
One look at Peta and Darius falls. Hard. Very, very hard.
If only the artist, who uses semen and pre-come to bind the colors of his paints, would stop teasing the slave boy for more....
I hope to have a cover soon to share. Maybe an excerpt on Monday? Sex scene? Character moment?
