book launch,  my view,  Through The Lens,  writing life

Coming Through!

Can I get a woo and hoo! Check out my be-u-te-ful cover for my September 3rd contemporary romance Through The Lens out from Crimson Romance. Isn’t it lovely? Gulp. This is feeling very real now.

Here is a little bit about Through the Lens:

Mika Walters is a normal woman working in the not so normal world of New York Fashion. As long time assistant to uber sexy photographer Alejandro Vargas she’s tired of being the girl in the background. Just once she wants Alejandro to look at her with the same smoldering look he gives to his willowy models and now she has her chance.


After a travel mishap where the rest of the crew and the models can’t make the remote location shoot for another three days Mika is taking her moment to catch Alejandro’s eye and put herself in front of Alejandro’s camera and if all goes to plan, his bed… at least until the real world catches up with them.

Alejandro doesn’t know what’s gotten into Mika maybe it’s the sand, maybe it’s the sun, but he doesn’t really care. All he knows is that he’s finally opened his eyes and is seeing her clearly for the first time as the smart, gorgeous and incredibly irresistible woman she is.

But why can’t she realize that what he’s feeling for her is not one of his usual one, well, three night stands. This is real. Real love, real passion. What’s it going to take for him to prove to Mika that she’s the woman he wants? Now and forever.


There you have it. Coming to a reading device near you September 3rd. Download it while it’s hot!

    I am eager to see what happens in this stranded-on-an-island scenario. The last book I read / reviewed with a similar set-up was VLT’s Nerd in Shining Armor. Such a fun book. It had the opposite romance dynamic though. In that case, it was the girl’s eyes that needed opening. VLT is big on humor. Are your books steamy, serious, funny, a combination? How would you describe this book, say, if you had three words only? 🙂

      Thanks for the question JW. That’s a good one. I have not thought of 3 words but I would say this book is a little steamy, my heroine, a bit saucy and the story has heart.

    Gorgeous cover, Kwana! I’m so thrilled for you. I remember seeing the book concept when it was still that, a proposal pitch. I can’t wait to read the whole enchilada — as a pubbed book!
