Former police detective David Schaeffer finally meets someone he can love, but he’s been dead for the past fifty years.  Inheriting a mansion that he plans to turn into a bed and breakfast, David finds himself fascinated with the portrait of Brian Terhune, a man who owned the house long ago.  Hearing stories from the town’s people, they viewed Brian as nothing more than a coldhearted killer, but when Brian’s ghost reveals himself to David, he learns that the town’s perception of Brian couldn’t be further from the truth.

Brian and David develop a bond.  As Brian start to trust David, he allows David to help him prove his innocence of the murders that were pinned on him years ago. More than happy to help the man he was falling in love with clear his name, David also had to face the reality that once Brian’s soul was free he may lose him forever.

Portrait Of A Kiss was indeed a unique romance.  It was quirky, funny and just so unusual.  Brian was definitely one of the sweetest ghosts I have ever read about.  His reaction to Fred, David’s pet iguana, makes me giggle evey time I think about it.  The town’s people were also a unique bunch that added to the quirkiness of the story.  Brian and David’s romance was very sweet and tender, that alone made Portrait of Kiss worth reading.  For readers looking for a loving but very out of the ordinary romance I strongly suggest Portrait of a Kiss.
