Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Considered the plain, clever one in her family, Lady Cressida Armstrong knows her father has given up on her ever marrying. But who needs a husband when science is the only thing to set Cressie's pulse racing?
Disillusioned artist Giovanni di Matteo is setting the ton abuzz with his expertly executed portraits. Once his art was inspired; now it's only technique. Until he meets Cressie .
Challenging, intelligent and yet insecure, Cressie is the one whose face and body he dreams of capturing on canvas. In the enclosed, intimate world of his studio, Giovanni rediscovers his passion as he awakens hers .
Born and educated in Scotland, Marguerite qualified as a lawyer though, she chose a career in IT instead, picking up an honours and a masters degrees in history in her spare time. She had dreamed of being a writer since winning a poetry competition aged nine, and finally took the plunge thirty years later with a historical romance.
