BLOG TOUR: Flirting with Forever by Gwyn Cready (Book Review 2010-50)

Product Description

In RITA® Award–winning author Gwyn Cready’s fun and sexy new time-travel adventure, an ambitious writer discovers that bad-boy painters are as timeless—and irresistible—as their art. . . .Art historian Campbell Stratford is about to make a name for herself with her scandalously sexy tell-all “fictographies” of famous seventeenth-century artists, but she’s more intimately familiar with her subjects than her eager readers can imagine. Thanks to a time portal she accidentally discovered, she has caused quite a stir in the Great Beyond. To save their reputations, the Guild protecting dead artists convinces playboy Peter Lely, portraitist to the king, to sabotage Cam’s latest project. A few hours posing on Sir Peter’s modeling chaise leads to a night of seductive passion—then Cam returns home and discovers his betrayal. But before she can turn her angry pen on her lover, Sir Peter makes a surprise visit to the future and transforms Cam’s twenty-first-century life into chaos of classic proportions. . . .

LOVED IT 

I haven't read many time travel romances and now realize I have missed out of a really cool genre.  The author creates a believable back story that switches nicely from present time to the 17th century.  There must have been a lot of research that went into this story since the time of King Charles II was well done and impressive with detail.  Like any decent romance, the sparks flew between Cam and Peter and  concluded with great satisfaction.  The only flaw in the whole book was that it was a little bit too long.
