Book Description:

Charlotte is shocked to find her new landlord, Reed Jackson, is tall, dark, and gorgeous. The two become fast friends, enjoying times spent together, more than times apart. Charlotte can’t believe that Reed finds her curvaceous figure incredibly sexy. Can Reed convince her he wants to be more than just “friends with benefits”?

Will Charlotte and Reed find… Love Beyond the Curve?


Exclusive Excerpt:


Charlotte woke to a pinkish predawn sky and the sound of Reed’s voice calling out to her. Swinging her legs off the bed, she was up and moving swiftly to his side. She eased a hip down on the bedside and placed a warm hand on his forearm.

“I’m right here, Jackson. What can I do for you?” She leaned over, and out of habit, placed a hand gently on his forehead, checking for signs of fever.

“This should put me out of my misery.” He reached up and ran a hand through her dark, wavy hair, and pulled her down to cover her lips with his own. She was startled at first, but then began to kiss him back, allowing herself the pleasure of exploring his mouth thoroughly with her tongue.

He pulled back, and brushed his thumb lightly across her lips. “You taste even sweeter than I imagined you would.” He proceeded to pull her back down, only this time he began kissing her throat and biting her earlobe. He dropped his

hand to her waist, then slid it farther down to cup her rounded bottom. He squeezed her hip gently and rubbed his large hand over it. “There. Isn’t. A. Sharp. Angle. On. You. Anywhere.” He kissed her between each word, sending tiny tremors through her body.

“I’m sorry. I’m working on that,” she answered closing her eyes as he bit her breast through her uniform.

He surprised her by replying through his teeth, “Not too hard I hope. I like it.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links: 


Kate Patrick grew up in the South. She can’t recall a time in her life when she didn’t love to read. She remembers going to the library as a child where she devoured biographies and Nancy Drew mysteries. Her love of reading has continued into adulthood, but it is hot romance that she loves to write! While in high school and college, she and her sister began to write romantic stories about girls that met their dream guys who fell instantly in love with them. Even these early manuscripts were spicy enough that the need to “hide” these notebooks was a high priority when leaving the house!

Writing took a backseat to a teaching career, marriage, and motherhood, though books were constant companions. Love stories became a favorite, and began to take the place of mysteries more and more. About three years ago, the idea of writing was rekindled. Now, you can find her late at night typing away by the blue glow of her laptop screen.

She and her husband live on the Gulf Coast with their son and three quirky Pomeranians. When not writing or reading, Kate loves to sing, dance, and watch romantic movies, side-splitting comedies, and crime dramas. Spending time connecting with family and friends is an important priority for her as well.
