❤️ SALE FOR A CAUSE ❤️

In November 2013, my little sister Angela was brutally murdered and it has forever changed my life. She had one of those really infectious smiles, and her laughter was the same. Today, it’s hard for me to remember the sound of it

It took me six years to try to put my grief into words, onto paper. But when I finally did, Counting Backwards From Gone was born. It’s a book solely about the loss I experienced, the aftermath of events, and my most private thoughts.

Honestly, it’s the most important thing I’ve ever written.

April 15th was Angela’s birthday. She would have been 32 this year. Sometimes I try to think about the person she might’ve been.

To honor her, proceeds from the sale of her book this month will be donated to a domestic violence charity. I’ve made the ebook $0.99. Sales from ebooks, paperbacks, and even signed copies from my personal shop will all go to the charity. The signed copies will be limited, but I’ll try to keep up with demand.

Please grab your copy, share this post, buy your friend a copy, maybe you know someone grieving who could use these words. In honor of my sister. ❤️

HAWK is LIVE!

I am so excited to bring Hawk into the world! He is absolutely your next book boyfriend! This story has all the things!
Grab your copy from your favorite retailer here!

What things does it have, you ask?
💀 A bad boy tattoo shop owner
🔥 A recently divorced single mom
😍 Lots of steam and spice
💋 Laugh out loud moments
💉 Swoon worthy date nights

FULL BLURB:
Hawk Tanner is not a man of many words—especially if you’re a silly girl getting a silly tattoo in his shop. The owner of Bird’s Eye Tattoo Studio doesn’t want you to tip him with your phone number or flirty glances. He’s tired of all the wrong women wanting him for all the wrong reasons.

Drew Ashby has no time—for anything. As a recently-divorced single mother, her focus is on finding a job, caring for her daughter, and rebuilding some semblance of a life after hers was wrecked.

When Drew lands a job at Bird’s Eye, sparks don’t immediately fly. She can’t deny the fact that her boss is a delicious specimen of a man. His tattoo-covered skin might even drive her wild, but his brooding presence and set jaw make him hard to read.

That is, until he drops the bad boy persona and starts making moves on her—kind and caring gestures she doesn’t expect.

Things turn hot, and just when Drew thinks everything is finally going right, life does what it does best: It throws her a curveball from her past.

Bird’s Eye might not be the family Drew envisioned for herself, but ideals can change in a heartbeat. There’s no doubt Hawk is the man she wants, but can he step up and be the man she needs?

A Fighting Chance is LIVE!

I know, I know, it’s two months early, but I just couldn’t wait any longer. Besides, who’s complaining? Gentry is here and according to everyone who’s read it, he’s the book boyfriend you’ve been waiting for! Get it on Amazon now!

Lyla Whitney managed to escape her hometown. Since then, she’s been avoiding certain things at all costs—like small-town setbacks, her family’s farm, and suffocating under too many expectations. Oh, and love, of course—but that’s one thing eluding her.

Aside from that, things are wonderful for her in Boston—the big city she chose to run to. That is, until her heartbroken little sister beckons her back to the very place she ran from: Whitney Farms.

Lyla braces herself to be there again—but only temporarily. Only through her sister’s impending divorce. What she doesn’t expect is the newest—and hottest—resident at the farm.

Newly single and free to do as he pleases, Gentry Bodine meets Lyla and at once, she rises to the very top of that list. His craving for her is demanding, undeniable.

With an attraction so palpable, even the inexperienced and gun-shy Lyla can’t resist—especially when lured with poetic, seductive notes from the unexpected southern charmer.

But when they fall into temptation—of what appears as fleeting summer fun—both must decide: Will they give love a fighting chance?

Praise for A Fighting Chance:

Holy-Sexy-Southern-Man Batman!

I LOVED this book. Gentry’s instant desire for Lyla was so sexy. I loved his little notes. I loved that he saw pictures of her before meeting her and had that crush.

Our heroine was so believable. I could totally understand why she had so few meaningful relationships, due to her parents. She is a runner, through and through. But Gentry was patient and understanding. I loved how Harper nudged the couple along and I can’t wait for her story.”

-J.R. Rogue, 5-Star Review

Um, can I have a Gentry across the hall who writes me notes?

I fell hard in love with A Fighting Chance. In so many ways, I relate to Lyla. The way she protects herself from her past for her future. But Gentry challenges this in all the most alluring ways. Has her questioning which path to take. He makes her feel after years of suppression. Makes her see the world in a different light.

Kat wrote Lyla and Gentry with such perfection. I love the poetic ties and the gentle romanticism. Absolutely perfect.

-Persephone Autumn, 5-Star Review

This is a book you fall instantly in love with. Gentry is the true definition of a gentleman and Lyla is a modern heroine. You just want to be best friends with her; from her inner dialogue to the way she fights to be true to herself is just so relatable.

There are just so many hidden treasures in this book; coming back to your roots, family, finding yourself, fighting for your future and love. Kat gives us this funny, sexy story that once you finish you literally just smile and maybe swoon. Okay, I was totally swooning.

-Daniele, 5-Star Review

Move over, book boyfriends… Gentry is my new #1. I’ve read all of Kat’s work and adored every word…. But this novel is another level for her. Gentry is absolute perfection. Can’t wait for the next book in this series.

-Kayleigh, 5-Star Review

SYNOPSIS:
Dani Monroe is more than just another jaded woman. Her veins run deep with every reason to never fall in love. If her mother taught her anything, it was how easily a betrayal is earned. After a childhood spent learning that lesson, it’s the only truth she knows. Now, as a woman with needs, she strictly dates married men. She knows what she is getting with them—all of the fun and none of the feelings—and that’s how she likes it.
 
Lucas Kane has only ever been in love once. Disloyalty followed soon after and he wants no part of “a future” with anyone ever again. But having the same conversation with different women became redundant. So he slipped on a wedding ring, and soon realized there were many women out there very attracted to married men. Those same women asked no questions when it came time to say goodbye. So he carries on like this—faking a married life and fooling around.
 
A chance encounter brings the two together and while it sounds like a match made in heaven, both are leery, with cynical hearts. What happens when two people hell bent on avoiding love find themselves falling? How many lies have they told? Will the truth set them free, or rip them apart?

Check out these early 5-star reviews on Goodreads:

“This collection hurts. It really hammered home all of the ache I feel being a woman in this world. All of the expectations and the self loathing we learn from society. Everyone needs to read this.”
-Author, J.R. Rogue

“Kat wrote so beautifully and unapologetically about what it is like to be a woman who is ridiculed. I am so insanely wowed by her work, especially this collection.”
-Goodreads Member, Maria

“Savage. Her name perfectly describes her words. Blunt. A punch that will catch you offguard somewhere between your abdomen and the memory of the boy in 5th grade that snapped your bra strap so hard you cried.”
-Author, Kayleigh Buckner

“Her poetry is written in a way that makes you feel all of her pain and emotion through the pages right down to your core. It’s real, it’s raw and it packs a punch. I was going to mention that it is probably not for the faint of heart, because yes, it will make you uncomfortable.”
-Goodreads Member, Renee
