Description: In the quaint, sleepy college town of Huntsville, history has an eerie way of repeating itself generation after generation... When in-the-closet college student Matthew Rhodes arrives at the old building in the town's historical district, little does he realize his life is about to take a sudden and dramatic turn. He is certainly prepared to earn extra income by posing nude for erotica artist Skylar Novak, and definitely anxious to discover if the sexy and reclusive man has an interest in him other than one of an artistic nature. But things get complicated when Matthew meets a handsome stranger lurking outside the artist's door. A stranger who has a sudden and compelling effect on him before disappearing in the blink of an eye. Matthew and Skylar quickly discover they share both an uncontrollable and supernatural bond with each other, leading to a red-hot and steamy affair, but they also realize they are mysteriously linked to the stranger. Is he even a man at all, or could he be an entity from another plane of existence who has lecherous designs of his own? And could his connection to Matthew and Skylar have historical significance, involving an elaborate and desperate plan that has miserably failed every generation for centuries? Before the situation can drive him insane, Matthew is determined to open his mind to new possibilities and learn the whole truth. But in doing so, will his burgeoning love and unquenchable sexual appetite for Skylar, the man of his dreams, suffer in the process? Or will his actions secure their love for eternity?

"4.5 Stars!...Rated "O" for "Orgasmic"...A fascinating book...I thought that Matt was a sweet and naive young man and I enjoyed Skylar very much, although I was surprised to find out that he was not much older than Matt. The secondary characters were great--I would love to read another book with Magenta/Olga in it! Matt and Sky have amazingly erotic sex. I was enthralled and definitely needed a toy or two. Even the descriptions of Skylar's paintings were erotic. The language in this book was exceedingly graphic. There was an amazing ghost story and Ms. Eastwick used that ghost in order to tell her story. I loved the twists and turns in Art For Art's Sake and thought that it ended beautifully. I am eager to read another book by Ms. Eastwick."--Marcy Arbitman, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"A romance with an interesting twist...I love a good romance with a bit of mystery and a paranormal twist. I wasn't left disappointed. I enjoyed reading how the characters put the pieces of the puzzle together to come up with the ultimate, and very hot, conclusion...Definitely a recommended read."--S. A. McDermott, Rainbow Reviews
His mouth tasted of peppermint. Luscious and invigorating, alluring and fresh. How appropriate, I thought, since the flavor summed up exactly my feelings about tasting a man's lips for the first time in my life. I kissed him back, my enthusiasm showing by the way that I thrust my tongue deep into his mouth. I wanted to experience more of that seductive flavor, more of him. I needed to savor every moment of the kiss, taking full advantage of the wild situation and my newfound enlightenment regarding my soul's most primal desires.
I delighted in the moist warmth of his tongue, and shivered as his facial stubble ran rough against my upper lip. He crushed his groin against mine, solid bulge to solid bulge, rocketing chills of joy throughout my entire body. His hands roamed up and down my backside, while mine eagerly did the same to his. And the kiss deepened even more, whether by his instigation or mine, I didn't know. Nor did I care. All that mattered was that the kiss continued indefinitely, giving me the long-awaited opportunity to explore with my tongue.
He gripped my buttocks and languidly dry-humped my groin. The feel of Novak's erection against mine rivaled no other sensation I had ever known. I longed to shed my annoyingly tight blue jeans and briefs, tear the clothes from him also, and have our naked cocks slipping and sliding against each other. I wanted to stroke his throbbing flesh, to squeeze him, to finally fall to my knees and taste him the way I had always imagined doing to another man.
The artist withdrew his tongue from my mouth and pulled back his head. "A pleasant experience, I presume?"
In reply, I kissed him again, on the lips, then on his whiskered jaw and cheeks, working my way over his neck and his jumping Adam's apple.
"Another positive response. Very good. That pleases me also." He released my ass and stepped away from me. His lips curled in a smile when I groaned my disappointment. "Patience, Matthew, patience. We'll have time to play later. But for now, let's get to work, shall we?"
Work? Oh, shit. So consumed by passion, elated by my first sexual contact with another man, I had nearly forgotten the reason he had asked me here today. "Yes, sorry."
"No need to apologize, handsome." He leaned forward and planted a gentle, lingering kiss on my mouth. "Your zeal is greatly appreciated. In one way, it will certainly make the first part of the process much easier for me. But in another way..." He looked downward and gave my boner a firm squeeze while studying its outline through the faded denim. A sigh spilled from his lips. "I fear it could quickly become a distraction for me if I don't keep my mind on the business at hand and work fast."
Novak snatched my right hand and led me back into the outer studio. He told me to stand on a plush ivory carpet, where a stark white backdrop covered the paneled wall.
"Strip for me, Matthew. Let me see you naked."
