Hey everyone! I have an excerpt and a giveaway for you as part of the Excerpt Tour for Love Beyond the Curve by Kate Patrick. Here is the cover and blurb first.
Love Beyond the Curve
by Kate Patrick
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?
“Who is it?” Charlotte asked without opening the door.
“Reed Jackson, your landlord. I hate to bother you so early, but I am in a bit of a jam, and was hoping you could help me out,” he said through the door.
Charlotte ran her hands over her hair to try to smooth it down. It was in a ponytail, and rather messy at that. She was wearing black Capri length leggings with a pink tank top and no bra. Her habit of completely “unlatching” when she got home was biting her in the ass right now. She was barefoot with hot pink toenails. Not a bit of make-up was on her face, since she had showered earlier. In other words, she looked like a train wreck, but what did it matter? She wished she looked more presentable for her initial meeting of the landlord, but with him being an old man, why should she care?
With that final thought, she opened the door and instantly thought to herself, “Oh shit! I should have cared!” There in front of her stood a prime example of “tall, dark, and handsome”, with a pair of piercing ice blue eyes to go with it. He was wearing faded, worn jeans, and a light blue t-shirt straining against a wide, muscular chest and bulging biceps. Somebody should have warned her. She closed her eyes for an instant, gathering her thoughts and opened the door wider, saying, “Please come on in. How can I help you?”
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.
