the ask@AAR: What are some of your favorite romances featuring artists?

It feels to me as though I’ve read many a romance where the lead or leads are writers or musicians but nowhere nearly as many featuring heroes and heroines who are visual artists. Off the top of my head, I recall that Sherry Thomas has a secondary character who’s a painter, the second Mackenzie novel has an overly macho hero who paints as well, Karen Ranney has a tortured painter heroine, and Benedict, the bland hero from An Offer From a Gentleman also wields a brush. I can’t recall any potters, glass blowers, or metalsmiths which may mean nothing other than the fact that I’m 62.

I feel sure there are lovely romances starring visual artists–what are they? Share your favorites!


P.S. We do have a tag for reviews with artists leads here.
