Kate McBrien writes sexy and witty contemporary romance fiction.

She has always enjoyed writing but became serious after being encouraged by a friend (shout out to you, Regina Kammer) to participate in National Novel Writing Month. She began writing historical fiction but soon realized that romantic elements were taking over the historical.

She has an MA in art history, and taught at a local college. She has worked for years as a dental hygienist and will never give up hope on non-flossers.

Kate is a San Francisco Bay Area native who lives near the beach with her husband and Lola, their spoiled Labrador Retriever. When not writing, she enjoys cooking, music, movies, reading, and fangirling over Jamie Dornan.

For Your Love: Origins and Inspiration

Writing For Your Love was equal parts pleasure and pain.

The subject of two people from Irish-American backgrounds was easy to write about because I share that background, too. I grew up in a first-generation Irish-American home. My parents emigrated to San Francisco, CA. I’m very familiar with relatives overflowing the living room while the adults drink and sing along with Irish music.

Broken was a tough read, but I loved it.

Joe is not exactly a traditional romantic hero and some readers disliked Sadie's "unfaithfulness" to her severely disabled husband. It was a tragic situation.

In 'Shattered' (a follow-up novella to Broken) we ge

“Justin sat back in his chair and studied her. He bent his head back and took a deep breath before refocusing his attention on her. “I thought I explained this to you. But I’ll be happy to explain it again.” He leaned forward and said with candid sincerity, “I rarely dated. I fucked around. A lot. It’s part of my past, but it’s not my present or my future.” He leaned in closer and whispered in her ear, “Does that satisfy your overactive curiosity? Or would you like me to demonstrate how I feel about you right here?”
