To save their reputations, the Guild protecting dead artists convinces playboy Peter Lely, portraitist to the king, to sabotage Cam’s latest project. A few hours posing on Sir Peter’s modeling chaise leads to a night of seductive passion-then Cam returns home and discovers his betrayal. But before she can turn her angry pen on her lover, Sir Peter makes a surprise visit to the future and transforms Cam’s twenty-first century life into chaos of classic proportions………………….

My Thoughts:

Author Gwyn Cready is the master of time travel romances. She has created the perfect setting and characters, to complete this one of a kind masterpiece. Not only has she provided romance, and time travel, she has provided a healthy dose of art history as well. For those of you who have studied or have heard about Sir Peter Lely, painter to King Charles II, or have been captivated by his many paintings, Flirting with Forever, takes you inside his world. Plus with this being a time travel novel it also brings him into ours. Readers will find the relationship between Lely and Cam heartbreaking, hilarious, and enduring. I highly recommend this book to all readers.

If like me you have seen a painting by Sir Peter Lely you will never be able to forget that painting. One of my favorites is this painting of Nell Gwyn.
