"Vivid, visceral, and sexy—I loved it." —Jen Devon
Johanna Porter used to be a rising star in the art world, before her jealous lover ruined her. Twenty years later, she's a soccer mom, looking at an invitation for her former beau's gallery opening.
One makeover later, and Johanna's ready to face her former life, both literally and figuratively—one of her ex's masterworks is a portrait of her. So it's not really theft when she cuts it out of the frame, rolls it up and walks out with it. At least, that's what Johanna tells herself.

About the Prize
Johanna Porter Is Not Sorry
The headlines dubbed it the art heist of the decade…
Twenty years ago, Johanna Porter was a rising star in the art world. Now she’s an unknown soccer mom. When an invitation arrives for an elite gallery opening for her former lover, the great Nestor Pinedo, Johanna wants to throw it in the trash where it belongs. But with some styling help from her daughter, she makes an appearance and comes face-to-face with the woman she was before the powerful and jealous Nestor ruined her.
La Rosa Blanca is a portrait of Johanna herself, young and fierce and fearless—a masterwork with a price tag to match. When she cuts it out of its frame, rolls it up and walks out, Johanna is only taking back what was stolen from her.
Hiding out with La Rosa Blanca in a shack on the Chesapeake Bay, Johanna digs into the raw work of reviving her own skills while battling novice-thief paranoia, impostor syndrome and mom guilt. But Johanna doesn’t just want the painting—she wants to paint again. To harness her powerful talent, she must defy everyone’s expectations—most of all her own—for what a woman like her should be.
