Three nights of pleasure…will it be enough?

Amanda had always been forgiving, until the night of her engagement. It was at that moment, when she found her fiancé banging the waitress in the bathroom, that she changed. Never again. Men were not going to use her ever again.

So when she found William’s portrait and learned that his sole purpose for existing was to please her, a

I was very impressed with The Genie of the Portrait, it was a fun and very sexy to read. I liked the story and the meaning behind it. Misty tells a great tale in this novella it may be short, but she fits everything in very nicely. Oh, I almost forgot expect some very hot sex.

I liked Amanda. She finally shows strong when she throws out her cheating fiancé and she ends up giving him a life time of what he truly should be living. I am having a very hard time not telling what happened to her ex;,

Esperaba mucho de este libro porque la premisa era prometedora, sin embargo me desilusionó mucho.

Creo que el problema es que todo sucede muy deprisa y no hay un verdadero espacio para que Amanda se pueda lamentar por la ruptura con su chico, que era un maldito no lo niego; aún así me faltó esos instantes de drama personal. El resultado es lo poco creíble que resulta el romance entre los dos. No hay química entre la pareja, tampoco puedes decir que el sexo fuera genial porque no hay descripción d

LynnMarie's Review

The Genie of the Portrait is an erotic version of an old classic. Amanda's character really made the story shine. She's so likeable and easy to relate to, and her inner dialogue is laugh out loud funny at times. After a messy break-up with her fiancé, she discovers a portrait that contains one very sexy genie.

Nothing seems strange with Amanda's acceptance of William, from his presence to his willingness to fulfill all her sexual fantasies because she thinks it's all part of an

What a cool premise! After tossing out her hateful boyfriend of several years, Amanda gets rid of all his stuff and decides to redecorate the bedroom. As she took a picture down from the wall, it fell to the floor and revealed another picture inside—a sketch of a man, one that appeared like it had been created in the Victorian era.


The picture is the link to a whole new world for Amanda—the link that enables the man in the sketch to come to life. He appears when she speaks to the picture absently

What a great short story. It went straight to the point and at the same time was descriptive. Especially in the erotica scenes. As I began reading, my woman’s intuition started ringing and telling me that this guy is no good for Amanda. When I read what he did to her on their engagement night, I felt all the emotions that Amanda was suffering, hurt, anger and revenge. I completely agreed with everything she did and if I was in her shoes I would have done the same. I loved the way that although t ...more

I have one major issue with this book, and that is the length. I wish it could have gone on for longer, I'd have been happy with another hundred pages. It felt a little rushed, but then I knew it was a novella so what the hell am I complaining about? That said, my moaning aside, Ms. Burke has done a good job with the amount of words she had.

It's an excellent twist on the genie idea, and Amanda was an engaging character. William was lovely, sigh-be-still-my heart-lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed t

I completely understand the sentimentality. One genie for me please, especially when their encounter gives the cheating, lying ex-boyfriend the fate he so rightly deserves. The only issue that I have is that Amanda went from break-up anger to happily ever after love in one day. Even if you meet the perfect person, it seems like there would be some ‘just got cheated on’ hangovers. But otherwise, both Amanda and William are great, easy to identify with characters that you want to have a happily ev ...more

I live in the Romantic Ozark Mountains with my supportive husband and our four wonderful children. When I am not enjoying family time, I love to write steamy romances. Creating exciting fantasy worlds filled with dangerously handsome heroes, is one of my passions.
