Model Position by Kitsy Clare
New adult contemporary romance novella (79 pages)
Release date: Feb 20 with Inkspell
In Manhattan’s glitzy gallery scene love and art are perilous games. 
Will Sienna dare to play?
All too soon, artist Sienna Karr will graduate art school and be flung out into Manhattan’s glamorous but cutthroat gallery scene. Luckily, she’s just met Dave Hightower, heir to the hippest gallery ever. He’s asked her on a date, and offered to introduce her to the gallery owner, his intimidating Aunt Lydia. Sienna’s excited! Now she’ll be able to climb the ranks and make those all-important art connections.
Trouble is, she’s falling hard for the sexy live drawing model, Erik, whose sizzling green eyes seem to pierce right into her soul. Dare she risk losing those potential art contacts for love? Erik insists that Sienna is a real talent and her painting stands out above all the others. But she worries that he whispers this come-on line to every pretty art student who flocks around him during breaks. And her friends worry, is Erik up to her pay grade? What kind of guy chooses modeling for a living? Who is he, really? Her choice may be her ruin… or not, but she must decide fast. Everything in Sienna’s super-organized life is turning to terrifying yet sweet chaos.

1 “You can paint me.” He leans in for an uninvited kiss. It’s a soft, sly kiss on my cheek that sneaks over to my lips. And he smells nice too—some classic cologne like Polo or Gucci. For a moment, I get into it, kissing back as I fantasize us restaurant-hopping and going to the theater and to openings at MOMA, him in a dashing tux and me in a sparkly gown.

2 “Women, the most beautiful things in the world,” answers the model. As if it’s the only thing worth painting, as if everyone should aspire to it. Normally coming from a guy that answer would sound so incredibly skeezy—a greasy, obvious pick-up line. But something about this guy’s earnest tone tells me he means it.

 3 “What? You’re not crushing on him?” A look of pure astonishment appears on her face. I shrug. “Hot damn!” Harper’s grin slides into a frown. “Wait, why would you just give him to me? Is something wrong with him?”

4 I’m getting turned on for real from stroking on the creamy paint and layering the second denser areas of muscle. It’s as if every stroke of paint on canvas is really a stroke on his warm flesh. When I hit my twenties, I was supposed to have a tidy love life with predictable hugs and predictable orgasms achieved only in a neatly made bed of thousand-count Egyptian cotton. Not a “near-climax” in a paint-spattered chair in a studio full of disorderly artists, and not just by thinking about my guy.
