Synopsis (from Goodreads):
When a handsome stranger approaches Cassie Tavington in Paris's beautiful Père Lachaise cemetery, she has no idea who he is. It doesn't take long to find out. A whispered name from a passerby shocks her into the realisation that it's Cameron Callahan, high-profile modern artist, who she's busy showing around the cemetery.

Mortified, Cassie runs, but Cameron soon tracks her down. He's intent on having Cassie sit for him, but Cassie isn't sure. His provocative sculptures are often in the media, which isn't somewhere that Cassie, the daughter of a politician, should be.

But there's no denying the attraction between the pair, and Cassie soon finds herself in a strange whirlwind of a relationship. Between Paris, London and New York, Cassie finds sitting for an artist isn't as simple as it seems. There's much to contend with—including Cameron's ex-girlfriend, Plum, her own father, and her new love interest, James.

With the clock ticking down to the opening of Cameron's new exhibition, Cassie must struggle to decide just how much of herself she can give over to Cameron and his sculpture while still remaining whole.

My Review:
The story beings with Cassie, a somewhat famous children's author looking to step out of that genre but seriously lacking in inspiration. She finds herself reading one of favorite spots, Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris. She discovers a handsome, older man standing over her. has he been watching her? Surely not. He asks for directions and that quickly turns into Cassie escorting him and giving him a tour. They hit it off and they have some serious chemistry. Suddenly Cassie realises how she knows him. He is the famous artist, Cameron Callahan, best known for his erotic scuplptures. Cassie freaks out and flees, but little does she know that she has just become Cameron's new Muse.

Overallthis was a quick and nice change from the other basic books in this genre. Although it lacked proper romance, it made up for it in the humour department.

My Rating:
