BLURB BLITZ TOUR: THROUGH THE LENS by K.M. Jackson

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.

Read an excerpt

Alejandro grinned wide, bestowing on her a dazzling white smile, letting her know all was forgiven about the travel plans and he was right where he wanted to be in that moment. That was Ale. Stormy one minute and blindingly bright the next. Totally unpredictable. “There’s my girl. Always the trooper. I knew I could count on you.”

Her frown turned to a grimace. “Well, can you at least admit that taking the speed boat to the island would have been a better choice?”

Alejandro shrugged and lifted his camera once again. He pointed it at the old brown-skinned captain, Tong, who waved and spread his weathered face into a craggy smile just as Alejandro clicked the shutter. “I will not.”

“Of course you won’t.” Mika stuck out her tongue at his back.

Just then, quick as a jaguar, Ale turned his trained lens to her and snapped the picture. “Caught you!” He threw his head back and laughed, for a moment not the usual Alejandro the Great. Not the conqueror of fashion, assistants, and models, but the one in her mind—conqueror of her heart, her soul and, if she was brave enough to admit her deep dark wish out loud, her body.

Mika sighed, letting out a long breath into the salty sea breeze. Yeah, you caught me, Ale, but don’t be so cocky. You just might find yourself caught, too, one day.

I guess your experience as a fashion designer has helped you realistically write the whole model/photographer plot? Cool.
