Book Description:

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. Stranded.

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.

“We could have stayed on the mainland, you know,” Mika grumbled towards her boss, photographer Alejandro Vargas.

But her words seemed to go unnoticed. As usual, his eyes and attention were elsewhere.

She tightened her grip on the boat’s edge as she studied Alejandro. Currently he was looking through his camera’s view-finder, his gaze trained on something far in the distance. His body was relaxed and swaying with the boat, but his arms were strong and steady, keeping the lens perfectly still.

How did he do it? She wondered to herself, and not for the first time that day. How did he manage to look so cool in this, what—98, 100-degree heat? And the rocking boat was enough to make a seasoned sailor ill, but still, Alejandro the Great was unflappable.

Well, she would not be sick. There was no way she was giving him the satisfaction. Mika took a deep breath through her mouth to ease her stomach. She then gave Ale a cool once-over, traveling from his rich dark hair, cropped short with hints of sun-kissed gold, working down his strong nose with those slightly flaring nostrils, to those full lips she was sure if placed in just the right spot could—

“I know,” he said over his shoulder. His deep voice jolting her out of her very inappropriate, but lately all-too-frequent diversion of assessing his stormy good looks. Thankfully his attention was still trained somewhere on the horizon so he didn’t catch her lounging and lusting. So very un-Mika like.

  1. Wonderful excerpt, so what inspired this book?

    Moonsurfer123 (at)gmail(dot)com

  2. Thank you, Anas. Quite a few things inspired me to write this book. I’m a former fashion designer (my final book in the series will be about a designer) so Through The Lens allowed me to have fun in my old fashion world. Another inspiration at the time was probably the desire for an island getaway. I think I had white sand beaches on the brain while it was cold and windy and I was writing that first draft.LOL.

  3. It's cold and windy now here as well, so just the right time to read it :)

    So what do you like to do when you are not writing?


  4. Lyra, I spend way too much time watching tv, but I love it. If you follow me on twitter (@kwanawrites) you will know I’m a total tv-nista! Right now Scandal is a fave of mine.

  5. I'm looking forward to reading more.


  6. What do you think about digital publishing and it's influence on the mainstream publishing?


    1. Great question, Hope. As for digital publishing and its influence, I think it’s great. As a writer I’m happy to have another way to get my book out there to readers and I’m thrilled that now the traditional pub world is catching up with the digital world. That said I still love a printed book and I’d never want to see them go away. I’m a library and bookstore queen so I want to see a world where we can both live and respect each other happily. Eee now I sound like I’m running for Miss America. LOL.

  7. Who would you like to play your hero and heroine, should your book be picked for a movie?


    1. Love this question, Lana. There are so many ways to go here. Sadly, or maybe it’s for the best, I do hero hop in my head. I think a great Ale would be William Levy (but feel free to insert your favorite man here) and for Mika, I’m thinking Nia Long. I just love her.

  8. Sounds like a lovely beach read! Good thing I'm headed to Jamaica in a couple weeks!!

    1. Have fun! I’ll try and not be too jealous over here in chilly NY. LOL.

  9. A little fun in the sun .... what could be better! I loved it, and can't wait for the next great story. Happy blurb tour!

  10. This seems as though it will be a lot of misunderstanding between them.

  11. I love libraries as well but digital publishing made it easier to get books, especially if you live in a smaller town or village.


  12. I like what I've read about Miki so far, she sounds like an interesting woman to get to know and reminds me of a friend of mine :)


  13. Thanks for letting me be a part of the event! :)

  14. I love the idea of having them stranded. How remote? I will have to find out I guess.
