Once a dancer and model, Juliana’s exotic life came to a sudden end. She waits for someone to bring her to life and share the truth behind her tragedy.

Duncan purchases a portrait of a beautiful woman from an estate sale and hangs it in his bedroom. Suggestive fantasies plague him while he sleeps, to the point he believes they are real. Through his enticing dreams, Juliana reveals to him the details about her mysterious death.

In the hope he can bring her back to life, Duncan embarks on a relentless search for further information about Juliana. His desire and need to be with her becomes so strong, he isn’t sure what is real anymore. Can there be a future with a ghost?

Juliana’s Portrait is a heat and thirst-inducing read. The chemistry between Duncan and Juliana is enough to melt your monitor, and then some. Monica M. Martin takes the reader on explicit fantasies, delving into the world of the paranormal, while at the same time offering some of the most thorough character development I’ve read in a long time. I enjoyed the style and voice of the author, and the attention to detail, especially the way she delves into Duncan’s headspace. Not only will you have a hard time putting this down, you might want to keep a glass of ice on hand as well.
