    Through The Lens (Creative Hearts: Book 1)



    Mika Walters is a normal-sized woman working in the not-so-normal world of New York fashion. As longtime assistant to uber-sexy photographer Alejandro Vega, 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. Stranded. After a travel mishap where the rest of the crew and the models can’t make the remote island location shoot for another three days, Mika is taking her moment to catch Alejandro’s eye and put herself in front of his 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.


    Seduction’s Canvas (Creative Hearts: Book 2)




    “I want to paint you” Artist Samara Leighton had wanted to say those words to the sexy motorcycle rider who lived in the building ever since she first laid eyes on him nearly a year ago. But now that the words were out she couldn’t stop her heart from beating wildly in her chest.

    “Honey, you don’t have enough paint to cover me.” Security specialist Mark Thorn didn’t mean to come off as a hard ass. As a matter of fact, he wanted nothing more than to let the tempting artist from across the hall do whatever she wanted to him and then some. But her haughty demeanor left the normally cool rider off his game.

    Samara knew this was her only chance to live out her long-standing fantasy and she wasn’t going to let it slip through her fingers. She had very little time before her show was done and the pressure of her family legacy meant she would finally go through with living out her life under the umbrella of the Leighton name and its responsibilities. There would be no more downtown jaunts, lazy museum afternoons, and evenings spent lost in the magic of color and her canvases. And definitely no time spent holding tight to the muscular form of her dark rider while the horrors of her past and her cares drifted further away with each mile of road they covered.


    Threads Of Desire (Creative Hearts: Book 3)

    Threads of Desire


    Sexy fashionista Gabrielle Russell has been challenging Nick Ross most of his life and now is no exception. A top financial analyst, Nick has been dating his boss’s daughter and he’s on the fast track to turning his five-year marathon into a three-year sprint. But life throws him a curve when he finds his perfect girlfriend curled up in a very un-zen like position with her yoga instructor. Faced with this awkward downward dog, Nick heads to the only place he can think of – his brother Steve’s place – only to be stuck face to hips, thighs, lips, just about everything with his roommate, Gabby. She’s the habit Nick just can’t shake. The one that got away and she won’t let him forget it.

    Gabrielle is frustrated. She’s been banging it out for years as a curvy girl trying to make her creative mark on the exclusive world of New York fashion and she’s hit a brick wall both personally and professionally. Now stuck in a dead end job designing jersey pantsuits for wannabe mafia wives while dodging the advances of her boss’s son, she doesn’t know how to get out of the hole she’s dug for herself. At least she has a bit of peace in the small apartment she shares with her childhood friend and roommate, Steve.

    Or she did until Nick Ross – Mr. Perfection and her own devastation, the one who broke her heart and almost broke her spirit – walked in. And now he’s back and looking for a place to camp out while he gets his life back on track. Well, she’s got news for him: She’s not the same girl she was all those years ago when just a look would send her heart stuttering. Okay, maybe she is, but now maybe it’s time the tables were turned on the unflappable Nick Ross.


    As always thank you so much for all your cheering and support. You all are the BEST!

    Goody Two Shoes!

    Thanks so much to all who entered my Goodreads SEDUCTION’S CANVAS giveaway. I’m excited to say I had 929 entries and Goodreads picked the two winners. One from California and the other from Great Britain. The lovelies Sarah and Sheila.

    How cool that Seduction is on the way across the States and across the pond?! Feeling quite good about that. Makes me want to do a little Sunday Goody Two Shoes dance which I would be doing if I didn’t dance so much out with the DH and friends last night. Sidebar: me and a heels just don’t mix. Oh well, I can always chair dance to Adam Ant!

     Thanks again to all who entered and I hope you will be seduced by Seduction’s Canvas.

    3rd Time’s a Charm

    In what seems almost unbelievable to me, yesterday afternoon I typed THE END, yet again, and then took the big, scary leap into the abyss and pressed send as I sent BOOK 3, my final book in my Creative Heart’s series (tentatively set for a January release), off to my editor at Crimson. In true Kwana form, as soon as I pressed send, I immediately wanted to find that magic button that said RETRACT, but guess what? There is none (why oh why doesn’t the internet have a 5 second rule? Imagine how many reckless mistakes could be avoided with just this one little button. How many eyeballs could be spared the runaway hot dogs). Oh well, it’s GONE now. And all I can do now is sit back and stew as I await the verdict on it. In the meantime I already have new ideas percolating so I guess the keyboard won’t have long to cool off as new characters are already whispering. No rest for the creative weary.

    story 2

    And in a huge bit of coolness check out what I got to hold in my hot little hands…yes, the print version of Book 2, SEDUCTION’S CANVAS! Please excuse me while I drool for awhile and turn into Smeagol from The Lord of The Rings and just stroke and put “My precious” on repeat. Talk about gorgeous. I have to say I’m loving it (and Jack is too) . What a fantastic job on this book and cover. And eek! I’ll be signing some of this and THROUGH THE LENS at Lady Jane’s Salon at my 1st reading on Monday October 7th. What a time to be had!  Check out the details here.




    Have a great day!

    Happy Friday from Me and The Jackster

    Happy Friday Friends!


    We’ve made it through another week. Go us!

    I wanted to say a huge thank you. Once again, THROUGH THE LENS made the Crimson Romance top 5 books for the 2nd week in a row. I’m so thrilled about that. And as an added bonus the trailer for SEDUCTION’S CANVAS made the USA TODAY HEA column yesterday. You can click here to see it. What a thrill! Also it’s finally here…. SEDUCTION’S CANVAS is not available in PRINT as well as e-form. So you hand sold it and feel it and read it any way you like! Order your PRINT copy today!

    It’s been gorgeous early fall weather here in the Northeast (I hope just a beautiful where you are) and Jack and I got to spend quite a bit of time on the porch while I worked in the old WIP (I’m in the final stretch now). This weekend will be spent probably, not out in the sun while I work, but down in the basement Bat Cave where the hubs will occasionally bring me down a bite of something for nourishment. He knows that trying to coax me out will only cause the beast to growl.

    I’m thinking my little muse may be down there with me since he’s been out of sorts lately. Moping around, not really eating much and just blah. I have a feeling he’s eaten something he wasn’t supposed to on one of our walks and it’s gotten to his sensitive stomach.

    Here’s hoping we both make to Monday bright and shiny and new and with a story that sings. Jack and I are wishing you a happy weekend!

    Big Wheels Keep On Turnin’

    Happy Monday! Don’t go getting all excited about it all at once now. Hold yourselves together. Unbelievable, but we’ve already made it to the middle of the Summer. Suddenly I’m feeling the urge to pump the breaks and slow things down a bit. The heat has been steadily rising and so has the pressure of, ‘get in the Summer fun before the time is done’.
    Speaking of Summer fun… here is my big haul from #RWA13.

    rwa books 2

    Wild huh? Can someone tell me when and how will I get to all these books? And while figuring that out can they also pencil me in 3 more hours into each day? M’kay? Thanks.

    Also looking at the date I’m freaking a bit as I notice it’s now 7/29 which means there are 3 days left where you can get both THROUGH THE LENS (now re-edited for a smoother read, talk about great news!) & SEDUCTION’S CANVAS for the Super Low price of 1.99 over at Amazon.

    Don’t miss out and get them while you can! Who knew Seduction could be had for such a price? Whee!

    And here is a question I haven’t asked in a minute… what cha reading? Please let me know in the comments? Thanks.
