Ruth Moore has lost more than her job, her boyfriend, and her ability to walk. She's lost her desire to paint, until she spies Mick Thomas. His sculptured body compels her to recreate him on canvas, but can she pick up a paintbrush again without losing her heart? Mick Thomas is running from a past he is forced to face when he meets the dark haired sprite in the wheelchair. The wheelchair he put her in. He can only hope that Ruth will somehow find it in her heart to forgive him and allow him to love her as he's never loved before.

Excerpt from A Brush with Love by Jo Barrett
After two hours, of which very little was spent painting, she announced solemnly that she was finished with the portrait.
Mick came around the easel, and stood next to her. "It's wonderful, Ruth. But-"
"What? What's wrong? You don't like it?"
"Whoa, sweetheart." He placed his hand on her shoulder and squeezed. "I said it's wonderful. I just don't think I really look like that. That's all," he said with a shrug.
"Oh." She grinned sheepishly, then slowly, hesitantly, her smile slipped into one of pure devilment. "I'm afraid you definitely look like that, Mick. All scruffy and gritty. It's not a very attractive look, mind you."
He cut off her words with a deliciously playful kiss. "Are you trying to tell me you don't find me the least bit attractive?"
Ruth nipped at his lips and he responded with a low moan. "I never said that."
"You're going to be the death of me, woman."
"Oh, I hope not." She stroked his scruffy beard. "I haven't been kissed nearly enough."
He held her face in his hands and took her mouth with a fiery possession.
No, she definitely hadn't been kissed enough and she never would.
