Meet Kate Patrick, Author of Love Beyond the Curve

About the Author

Kate Patrick, Author
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.

Love Beyond the Curve Blur:

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?

Love Beyond the Curve Excerpt #16

Reed closed his eyes and thought again about the night he happened to be sitting on his back porch smoking when her shadow in the French doors caught his eye.  He had actually taken a cold shower that night to try to erase the effect that sensual dance had had on him.  If he thought much more about it now, he’d have to do the same thing again.  That could prove embarrassing with her flipping back covers without warning.  Maybe it wouldn’t be embarrassing at all.  Maybe she would just go down on him right then and there.  Hell, he would love her to do just that while still wearing that nurses’ uniform.  He hadn’t been in so much pain that he hadn’t noticed the top button was unfastened, revealing an alluring glimpse of cleavage.  And when her arms were over her head as she twisted her hair into a knot, the outline of just how buxom she really was made him stop and stare.  He really had to get his mind on something else, because lately he found most of his thoughts were ending up being about Charlotte.


Kate will be awarding a $5.00 Starbucks Gift Card to a randomly drawn commenter at the end of each week of the tour; and a $25 Visa Gift Card to one randomly drawn commenter at the end of the tour as well as a $20 Amazon Gift Card to a randomly drawn host.
