Kate Mitchell knew what she wanted: to finish her degree from Foothill Art Institute and break into the art world on her own terms. Just when she thinks she has it all figured out, new insight into a mysterious photograph by her artistic idol will lead her on a journey through the past.

A photograph. A painting. Lost dreams and secret pain. One clue leads to another, and Kate learns that pieces of the past might leave marks on her own future, leading to a love she never could have predicted.

One portrait may hold the answers, but learning its secrets will challenge everything Kate thought she knew about love, art, and life. A single picture can tell more than one story. In the end, a young artist will discover that every real love story is a unique work of art.

The Genius and the Muse is a contemporary romance novel for adult readers.

Look a Little Deeper…

Wow. I will just start there.

I picked up the Genius and the Muse because it was available free in Kindle Unlimited and I kinda LOVE Elizabeth Hunter.  But I has a preconceived notion that this was some light fare fast fiction.

I was so wrong.

Weaving between two time periods, multiple locations and varying people, a story is sketched from pencil and eventually becomes a full color work of art (see what I did there?!)

Kate is a student obsessed with a little-recognized work by her favorite photographer.  The simple piece evokes something in her, and when she finds a random connection to it with another artist, a tale begins to unfold via the varying memories and viewpoints of a host of colorful characters, including Javi.

Gruff and isolated, Javi is a brilliant artist who is not looking for complications, but they’re about to step into his
studio…  Wanna talk about an anti-hero you just cannot help loving!

I just recently found the wonderment of Hunter’s “classics” and I gotta say, I am surprised it took so long for this woman to take off.  Quiet simply, her writing is brilliant.

If you’d like something a little different, you can pick it up here.
