Christie Stratos - The Artist

An ad in the newspaper. A Civil War veteran in need. An artist companion. One of these things is not what it seems.



Miss Grant’s sole purpose in life is to help Civil War veterans by painting portraits of them to reveal the beautiful souls beneath their injuries. She has met many exceptional men through answering their newspaper advertisements for a companion.


But the latest veteran, the beautiful Mr. Markham, is strange. He has no debilitating injuries, simply a long, deep scar on his face—nothing more. His isolation from society and his demands to be treated as an invalid defy belief. Why does he choose to suffer when he could enjoy a fulfilling life?


Something else is wrong with Mr. Markham. And by the time Miss Grant figures it out, it may be too late to escape.


The Artist is a surprising Civil War-era suspense story that will keep you guessing until the bitter end.
