Summary
Katya Spivak, 16, first meets the silver-haired Marcus Kidder while on a walk around Bayhead Harbor. His interest in her seems harmless so when he invites her to his home she accepts and finds it filled with books, artwork, and the sounds of classical music. Then the wealthy man begins lavishing her with presents, which she finds hard to refuse. Something changes when he asks her to pose for a painting he wants to do. What does the man really want and how far will he go to get it?
Summary
Approached by an elegant older gentleman while babysitting in Bayhead Harbor, sixteen-year-old Katya Spivak is entranced by his sophisticated home and eventually agrees to pose for his newest painting before realizing that he may have a hidden agenda
