Even as a child Alexis Conner found the paranormal fascinating and as a scientist authenticates or debunks the mystical. However even she is a bit taken aback in Philadelphia when a hunk seemingly steps through a portrait of Lincoln and begins kissing her. Later at her apartment Alexis meets Rourke of Calandor, who insists he is from a different world Blackfell.
He further explains a portrait of her on his side and that of Lincoln on hers contain a portal between time and space. Furthermore his need for her so deep it enabled him to use the portal to be with her. He and his people need Alexis to come to his realm as she is considered the lone hope to stop a plague destroying his race.
PORTRAIT OF A MAN is an intriguing time travel science fiction romance that paints an interesting future of a world in which the scarcity of females has led the gender to become a valuable commodity. The lead pair is delightful as Alexis used to anything under the sun has problems adapting to a distant future that makes the Dark Ages look enlightened. Though well written, this reviewer recommends first reading the previous thriller (see PORTRAIT OF A BRIDE) as explanations of why are more apt to be found in that tale than in this exciting story line. Still Tracy Fobes provides a wonderful "devastated" realm tale.
This was a great time travel book. This was the first time travel book that I've read. This was an alright book!
Paranormals are very popular right now, and I wouldn't say that this is one of the better ones. It was okay.
I think this is the sequel to "Portrait of a Woman".
Very different premise for a paranormal.
Dream of mermen? M'Cal will live up to all your fantasies. Great book!
