Genre: contemporary romance
The first two books in Kitsy Clare’s new adult Art of Love romance series are together in this boxed set. Readers are along for Sienna Karr’s exhilarating ride as she juggles friends, relationships and a fledgling art career. Kitsy knows the painting world, having shown her work in galleries, and she loves writing about its sexy intrigue.
In the novella Model Position Sienna finishes art school and longs to make her painting debut. Forging the right connections is critical in her competitive industry. Handsome classmate Dave is heir to the hippest gallery in Manhattan and he could be her much needed entree. Then, there’s Erik, the drawing muse and struggling artist whose nude modeling pays for his paints. Sienna and Erik have an unexpected connection, but his hot body attracts everyone in the class. Who will she pick and will she ever get that break she needs?
In Private Internship Sienna lands an internship with Casper “Caz” Mason, a famous sculptor worth millions. With her boyfriend working overseas for a year the job becomes all consuming. Caz puts Sienna through a series of strange yet alluring games and tests. She knows she should get away. But by the time Sienna sneaks into his locked storage room and unravels his terrifying secret, she’s fallen way too hard.

Two teaser excerpts from Model Position (book one):
It’s his eyes that strike me most; they’re emerald green with a slight upward slant toward each cheekbone, as if he hiked all the way here from a northern land of sun and wind. He arranges himself on a leopard-skin rug, wearing only a suede thong, and glances around at us artists.
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 earnest, disorderly artists, and not just by thinking about my guy.
Two teaser excerpts from Private Internship (book two):
He locks his rich, hot-chocolate eyes on me, and studies my every curve and angle, seems to be piercing right through my skin into the alleys of my mind and heart. Curious, he’s so curious. I sense him asking where I’m from and why it took me so long to find him, and what kind of art I do, and whether I’ve ever sold it or gotten a review, or who I know, who I hang out with, and how much experience I’ve had in galleries, in school, in the world, in bed. My neck heats up. Did I just think that?
This is dangerous. He’s my boss. I’m committing professional suicide here. Caz runs scalding hot and icy-cold, he’s bound to turn on me. Is this what happened with Harper? She got too close and then . . . “Hey, I tagged you,” I whisper into his hair. “What do you intend to do about it?”
