This will be based very generally of the book/movie "Portrait of Dorian Gray".
An artist in the sleepy village of Glastonberg makes her living painting portraits. One day when the elderly noble Baron Dubois of the neighboring country of France comes to the town to ask a favor. With him is his very handsome son and heir, Vincent. The elder wants a portrait done of his son. He has heard good things about Madame Rue. He offers her a very nice commission and leaves his son to sit for the portrait.
As she works on preliminary sketches and waits for the light to be just so in her studio, she studies him. He is flawless, deep blue eyes, sculpted cheekbones of a patrician air. A physique to make any woman squirm. He is quiet and unassuming. He does not seem to notice the sidelong glances of desire forming in the artist's eyes. What is he thinking?
Beside her on a table sits an ancient tome of dubious content. She glances at it and a small smile tickles her plain features. All her life she has dreamed of marrying well and settling in the country across the channel. But her features are plain and she hides a generous figure of modest proportions beneath a baggy smock. Her long red hair is tied back or fastened in a tight bun that makes her features even more severe. Yet she is not so much ugly as plain. With a little effort she could look more appealing.
For now she bids the young Vincent to relax. She asks him questions about his life and seeks to get a better understanding of him as a person. He seems bored, as if there is somewhere he would rather be.
But the ancient tome holds a dark secret. Can she convince him to let her give him a gift of almost impossible temptation in return for a life of ease in his fancy castle in France?
