by Karin Kallmaker
Jackie Frakes is a talented architectural intern whose life has fallen into unsatisfying patterns, both personally and professionally.
Renowned artist Leah Beck is exhibited in galleries nationwide. But her life has darkened with the death of her lover, Sharla.
Trapped by a mountain snow storm over Thanksgiving weekend, Jackie is rescued by Leah. The snowbound weekend in Leah’s cabin shakes the very foundations of Jackie’s life.
As for Leah, Jackie provides renewal and inspiration for her work. And the exhibition of PAINTED MOON, her new series, will reveal Leah as never before,as a lesbian artist.
With their relationship increasingly torn by conflict and misunderstanding, the winter weekend together will surely be their last. Then intervention comes… from a most unlikely source.
One of Karin Kallmaker’s most popular romances, Painted Moon has achieved the status of a timeless lesbian romance classic.
Lesbian Review of Books
Painted Moon is a classic that could very well become the next Curious Wine.
Midwest Book Review
Painted Moon has what this reader considers classic Kallmaker elements with interesting characters, wry wit and steamy love scenes. (Some of the images of Jackie and Leah have lingered in my mind for years.) If you missed this title the first time around, or if you are new to Kallmaker's novels, pick up a copy of Painted Moon and bask its glow.
Lambda Book Report
A classic Kallmaker romance—as steamy as readers like it to be.
