A beautiful young artist finds both temptation and fulfillment when she discovers that a handsome duke shares her love of the arts. His family is convinced that she's a disaster waiting to happen, but the Duke of Prestwick is willing to forsake the strict rules and regulations of his social position for a chance at true love.

Can the two of them get past the problems that beset them to create the masterpiece of love?

Andrea Pickens peoples this tender tale with outrageous secondary characters and provides her lovely young couple with plenty of opportunities to interact in an effort to stem the tide of potential catastrophe. The author is in fine form with A STROKE OF LUCK, and readers will be clamoring for more. (Oct., 224 pp., $4.99)
