Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red.
Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.
The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting...but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red...

This is one of those books that has the logic and common sense within my mind battling with all that unfolds on the pages as the story progresses.
Pure curiosity drove me to the end.
Would I recommend it? if I knew the readers tastes & I thought they fit then yes.
Did I enjoy it? not really.
A young woman, an owner of an art gallery, on the brink of bankruptcy is approached after closing by a stranger with a proposition, to become his whore, be at his bidding, be ready when he called, in payment she would receive paintings that would save her gallery.
She agrees, just like that, yes I will whore myself out to save the gallery, and from there is where my judgemental thoughts kicked in, I couldn't prevent it. Red flags kept going up to much for me to enjoy it.
It was weird but at the end made sense. At times it felt like a historic romance, the speech, the references but it wasn't.
I love an erotic story this was different to my usual reads though, The Red was certainly erotic and more.
It's a tough one to review and one each reader will react to differently. You will either love it, hate it or be dumbfounded by it.
Told in Mona's pov, third person. leads to a somewhat hea.
