World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn't paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can't stop himself from bringing her to life on canvas.
Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa's every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn't know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm--and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa's happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.
Drake has never felt this way about anything he's painted...and he's definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust--and to love--again after such a devastating betrayal?

New York Sullivans
Now That I've Found You (Book 1) ORDER HERE Since I Fell For You (Book 2) *AVAILABLE October 12, 2016
Now That I've Found You is the first book in the New York Sullivans series and the fifteenth in the Sullivan family series. Bella Andra has "helped" the Sullivan family find love in San Francisco, Seattle, and now she has moved to the HEA's of the Sullivan cousins in New York.
The first of the New York Sullivans to find his HEA is Drake Sullivan. Drake is a world-renowned artist that has seemed to of lost his creative mojo. He took off to his (private) Montauk cottage to hopefully find his inspiration again before his next show. But he doesn't expect to find his inspiration to come in the form of a woman. Drake doesn't paint woman. Period. Drake knows how destructive a painter/muse relationship can be. He's seen it first hand. So he can't figure out why he is so compelled to paint the woman he sees on the cliffs outside his house.
Rosa is running from her life. After nude pictures of her were released (without her permission OR knowledge), reality T.V. star Rosa Bouchard took off for the one place that remembers being happy with her late father. She plans to lay low and avoid... well, everyone until the media firestorm passes and she can decide her next course of action. But her plans take a significant detour when she meets Drake.
But can she move past the betrayal and let herself trust the way that Drake makes her feel or will she let her fear and insecurities ruin her chance at her happily-ever-after.
Drake definitely lives up to the Sullivan family name. He is handsome, devoted to his family, caring, talented, and when he falls, he falls completely and totally in love. We also get introduced to Drake's siblings and future books by Bella Andre. I can't wait to read more about the New York Sullivans. =]
