A continuation of [b:The Portrait|16247854|The Portrait|L.M. Somerton|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1354731527s/16247854.jpg|22276391]. The dynamic between Tristan and Garrick makes this--Tristan with his sexy meekness and sweet tempered obedience, and Garrick with his over-the-top toppiness. Very hot. I would have liked more on the Black-dog/Blackwood paranormal element--the Blackwood backstory sounds fascinating (in a sick way). In comparison, the jealous ex plot line felt pretty familiar. Altogether, a quick, fun read.
