Where passions and secrets collide
Kate has lived in Florida for most of her life. She enjoys a quiet life with her husband and two kids, Thomas and Taylor.

Kate has pulled all-nighters finishing her favorite books and also writing them. She says she'll sleep when she's dead or when her muse stops singing off key.

USA Today Bestselling Author Kate loves creating worlds full of suspense, secrets, hunky men, kick ass heroines, steamy sex and oh yeah the love of a lifetime. Not to mention an occasional ghost, and other supernatural creatures, thrown in for fun.
Romantic Suspense and Paranormal
                                               Hard Shift

Paranormal Investigator Elizabeth Hanson knows all about how much pain shifters can inflict on the human population. She isn’t a shifter by choice, and there’s nothing she wants more than to help catch the criminals running amok in her town. It’s more than a job. It’s a way to contain her anger toward the animals that destroyed her life. Her ability to spot the truth makes her a good detective, but her hatred for the bad guys gives her renewed drive and determination to live.

Bear shifter Rhys Donavan has his hands full, keeping his bar running smoothly and his brothers in line. When he realizes women are going missing, and his bar connects them to one another, he calls for reinforcements. One sniff of the sexy detective in charge of their case and he knows she’s meant to be his. But, given her hatred of shifters, getting her to admit her fate lies with him will be one of the hardest challenges of his life.

When her painful past resurfaces and new secrets are revealed, it takes more than their sizzling chemistry to solve their mysterious case and finally convince her that she’s meant to be his.
