As an art dealer, I’ve learnt that everything and everyone has a price. Months away from my fiftieth birthday, I’ve resigned myself to being alone: I need nothing more than my work to be happy.
At least I thought I didn’t want anyone in my life… until a fortuitous meeting with a young artist has me questioning just how happy I really am. And now I’m craving things I thought I’d closed my heart to. Charlie is so full of light and possibility, it’s as if he was made for me.
There’s just one problem: he’s half my age.
As an artist, I’m used to running out of things: paint supplies, canvas, food, money, and patience. The life of a starving artist has turned out a little more real than I would have liked. As if being broke wasn’t bad enough, now I’m practically homeless. But nothing can deter me from my dreams. I just need to get a lucky break.
Running into a wealthy art dealer was beyond serendipitous. With Alex’s help, my career might finally take off. But when sparks fly between us, business is the last thing on my mind. Alex is so stoic and strong, it’s like he’s the safe place I’ve been searching for.
There’s just one problem: he’s twice my age.
Alexander and Charlie live in different worlds, where more than age separates them. Can a wealthy art dealer and a homeless artist make a life together?
The Heart Dealer is an Age-Gap MM Romance which is part of The Individualists series. Featuring one silver fox, one young and idealistic artist, and the deal of a lifetime.

Simply Charming! 💖
My heart is all kinds of happy after reading this book. If you want to enjoy a true romance without all the angst and crazy drama this is a must read for you. 💋
A middle aged art dealer has a serendipitous encounter with a twenty something artist in a small cafe in Dublin.
What makes this story so great is its simplicity. The couple does have a few bumps to work through with the older one, Alex, still having issues over the loss of his partner and the younger man, Charlie, being quite literally a “starving artist,” along with recuperating from a fall he took from a cliff.
Even with their baggage to sort through, this charming couple make you fall in love with them while you watch them fall in love with each other. Such a sweet story. I loved it. 💕
