The Portrait

 

Can shy, submissive Tristan become dominant enough to rid himself of a malevolent ghostly rival and find his happily ever after?

 

When Tristan Lindsay takes a job cataloguing the library at Faversham Park, home of rock star Marcus Balen, he also accepts a role as companion to Balen's artist son, Garrick.

Garrick is beautiful and talented. He's also demanding and infuriating. He uses Tristan as an unwilling model, shamelessly manipulating the shy boy's emotions to draw out his submissive tendencies.

Drawn into the enigmatic artist's world, Tristan discovers a side of himself that he didn't realise existed. Although afraid of his own feelings, he learns to trust Garrick and falls deeply in love.

But Garrick has a secret that could tear them apart. A ghostly rival objects to Tristan's presence in Garrick's life. As the spectre's malevolence increases, the young lovers must search for clues to the haunting and find a way to exorcise the jealous ghost. What they find leads them down a path that challenges the dynamics of their relationship. Will their love be strong enough to overcome its supernatural opposition, or will there be no happily ever after?
