Wyatt Fox is the mysterious, low-key, prone-to-squinting Dempsey. He's a calming force, not one for letting his temper get the better of him (like, uh, ALL the other Dempseys), and he has a secret. Strange overnighters away from Chicago which he's very close-lipped about. More hints are given in Alex's story, PLAYING WITH FIRE (out Sep 29), but you won't find out what's up with Wyatt until Spring 2016. His heroine will be an awesome combo of strong and vulnerable, and will bring out Wyatt's protective instincts, cultivated by years in the Marines. I can't wait to share them with you!

I'm working on Flynn's story right now and his girl will be Brody's sister Olivia. It'll be a "friends/now enemies/best friend's little sister" story. Lots of juiciness there, especially as last we left them, Flynn just got dumped by his fiancee and Olivia's about to get married. Like the day after the TAKING THE SCORE epilogue! Needless to say, something interferes with that wedding :) I'm hoping for a July release date.(less)

Kate Meader shared a quote
In Skates Trouble by Kate Meader
“She’d fallen in love with a man who risked it all to stoke the embers of desire created that first night and turn those sparks into flames of love. Who saw what she couldn’t because her heart was closed to the possibilities. Who respected and cherished all she was.

Ford “Killer” Callaghan slayed her every time, and she was happy to die in his arms every night.”

“Her cousin had clearly found a kindred penis in Jack Kilroy.”
Kate Meader, Feel the Heat
tags: humor

“Watching him walk over, Alex mused that Eli Cooper was the sort of man who knew how to use his physicality. Beneath his handmade shirts and tailored suits, a street fighter hummed through every loose-limbed motion. But that impression did not extend to his face, which was structurally perfect. Skyscraper-high cheekbones. Superhero jaw. A mouth that should have a government warning. There were no signs of past trouble with a jealous husband or an abandoned girlfriend. No one had ever broken his nose. No one had busted his lip.

Strange, because her first instinct on seeing him was to roundhouse kick him into the next millennium.”
Kate Meader, Playing with Fire

“From time immemorial we’ve been cleaning up after male messes. When a man does it for a woman, it’s called being rescued. When a woman does it for a man, it’s housework.”
Kate Meader, Flirting with Fire

“Her cousin had clearly found a kindred penis in Jack Kilroy.”
Kate Meader, Feel the Heat
tags: humor

“She cracked a sexy smile with a side of condescension. “Jack, I’m not looking to know you.”
No, she wasn’t, unless you counted biblically. She was looking for the guy who indiscriminately dated and bedded famous women. A guy whose life could be reduced to adjectives, most of them unflattering. That guy.”
Kate Meader, Feel the Heat

“I respect you," he murmured. "and your views. I think of you as an equal. I respect your brains, and all those big words you like to use. But I also want to rip your clothes off and have sex with you until you scream and cry and see God." -Jack Travis (Smooth Talking Stranger)”

“Are you telling me that men are compelled by the mere fact of their gender to choose violence as their first resort?”
“Partly. It satisfies our sense of justice, it makes us feel good, and it always improves our odds with women.”
