From USA Today bestselling author Sky Corgan comes a new sinfully wicked dark romance
Seven sins. Seven days.
I need a muse for my next exhibit.
She has to be young.
She has to be a virgin.
And she has to be willing to do everything I tell her to. No questions asked.
Never in a million years did I imagine that I’d be selected for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Now I’m being whisked away to a private island to spend a week alone with world-renowned painter Chandler Lexington.
He’s gorgeous and mysterious and eccentric.
I though he was just going to paint me, but every seductive glance has a secret hidden intention behind it, and I’m beginning to think that this is about more than creating art.

Content warning: This stand-alone novel contains scenes that may make some readers uncomfortable.
A bit eccentric, but who am I to question or complain? No questions asked. That’s what I signed up for.
I do my best to scoop up the most safe-looking roll on my plate with the chopsticks. Everything in it is identifiable: cucumber, avocado, and crab meat. I think this is what they call a California roll, except that the crab meat in it is real instead of the imitation kind. I stick it in my mouth and give it a good chew, happy that it doesn’t taste horrible.
“Sake?” Chandler offers to pour me a drink from the tokkuri sitting between us.
“I’m underage,” I remind him.
“You’re not underage here.” He smiles at me before filling his sakazuki.
“Where is here exactly?” I cast a glance outside at the towering mountains and serene greenery that are only still visible because of the light of the moon.
“No questions, remember.” He lifts the glass in cheers before downing its contents.
I expect him to fill my cup as well when he goes to pour himself a refill, but he doesn’t. As I watch him, I think that maybe having some alcohol wouldn’t be such a bad idea. It would take the edge off of my nerves.
He sets the tokkuri down but doesn’t pick up his sakazuki, looking at me across the table with a serious expression. “Let me tell you a bit about how this is going to work. I assume you came out here expecting to be drawn or painted, but that’s not going to happen while you’re here. This facility is set up with cameras. You can’t see them, but they’re everywhere, catching every angle of everything that we do.”
