Memphis Heat was my second book to be published by Siren-BookStrand. I really liked the characters and all the “heat” they generated each time they came into each other’s presence. Maeve is all about crusading for the underdog, and Steele is all about the almighty dollar, and how to make more of it. Maeve tries to resist her attraction to him, but it seems useless. I am going to share with you an excerpt that is for ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY, and a book review. If you are interested in finding out where these two end up (besides the nearest bed! ) , you may purchase this book from Amazon or Barnes and Noble at the link below. Enjoy!
This reviewer’s rating: 5 – Outstanding
Another romantic, sexy, M/F read by Kate Patrick. Memphis heat is well written the characters are terrific. I love a female who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid of some good lovin’. I love a hot, strong, romantic man. I get both here. Maeve meets a sexy man at a Memphis Blues bar and, uncharacteristcally for her, she decides to let her hair down with him after a dance. Why not, he’s sexy, charming and wants her. They have a night of unbridled passion. Maeve leaves the next morning only to find out her sexy man from the night before is her competitor on some commercial real estate. So, Maeve and Steele are both interested in the same property for different reasons, Maeve for a community development, Steele for another in his chain of bars. There is some VERY sexy writing in this book and it helps that the characters are easy to like. The story progresses nicely, even though they’re in competition they are having some sexy fun. However, fun turns into more, even though there is an outcome on the property which doesn’t favour one. Neither can forget the other as much as they feel they might be able to. Will they be able to get over their real estate rivalry? Will sex be the only thing that they leave on the menu? Have a read, it’s a terrific novella sized book. Memphis Heat is not too long, not too short, it’s just right in every way. This is my second Kate Patrick book and I’m impressed. Nice writing, no typos, great editing and great characters. Highly recommended, sexy reading. BUY

ADULT EXCERPT (Must be 18 years or older to continue)
The door had barely closed before Steele had slammed her back against it, and assumed a full body press, crushing her lips with his own. His warm mouth tasted of aged bourbon and cigarettes. The subtle fragrance of some exotic spice permeated Maeve’s senses as he began to blaze a scorching trail of kisses along her jaw line, on down to her collarbone where he sunk his teeth into her tender flesh. A guttural moan of pleasure escaped from deep inside the most primeval part of her being. As she closed her eyes, she leaned her head back and let her senses take over.
She felt strong hands splayed over her ribcage begin to slide upward to then pull her black cashmere sweater over her head. The cool air in the room caressed her skin causing her already hardened nipples to strain further against the black lace of her skimpy bra. He slid his tongue between her parted lips to explore her mouth more thoroughly. When he covered her breasts with his warm palms, she pressed deeper into his hands. He began to pluck at the distended peaks that yielded to his masterful touch. He reached behind her to release the hooks of her barely there bra with one expert twist of his wrist. He then slowly pulled the straps downward to free her breasts. He took a step back to feast his eyes on the twin globes for the first time. He smiled and whispered, “Beautiful.” He cupped a heavy breast and pushed it upward to meet his lips that he lightly brushed back and forth across the erect nipples. She bit her lower lip in an effort to contain the whimper that threatened to escape past her lips. The sensations he created with his tantalizing mouth began to fan the flames of desire already raging within. When he unexpectedly bit a taut nipple, she gasped with surprise and fisted her hands in his dark locks, holding his head firmly to her bosom so he could not pull away. He sucked greedily and switched to the other one to give it equal attention.
He slowly knelt down in front of her as his hands slid over her bottom, squeezing it as he journeyed on down the length of her thighs. He tucked his thumbs under the hem of her black pencil skirt as he looked up into her eyes. He maneuvered it up over her hips to reveal a very lacy, black strip of fabric dipped low beneath her navel. He slowly exhaled and leaned forward to kiss her mound through the delicate lace. The tender gesture took her breath away, and she gave him a seemingly sultry smile when he glanced up.
That smile appeared to be all he needed to continue with his seduction. He hooked his fingertips under the edge of the lace and pulled downward to slip them off. She then surprised him by turning to ease down the zipper of her bunched up skirt. She looked back over her shoulder to find that his jaw dropped slightly as he regarded the view she revealed to him by the inch. She let the garment drop to the floor and kicked it aside with her high-heeled shoe. She placed her hands on her hips and posed long enough for him to absorb the picture she presented before him. When she faced him again, he eased forward with panther-like stealth and rose to his feet to ravish her mouth once again. This time when he slid his hands over her skin, he lowered himself to his knees and lifted her leg over his shoulder. He began to plant soft kisses along the tender flesh inside her thigh. When he reached the juncture between her legs, he continued to lightly kiss her along the seam of her womanhood. He then darted his tongue into her hot pussy and ran it up to where her sex seemed to throb in anticipation. He parted her with his thumbs and began to lick her very core until she begged him for mercy when the pleasure became immensely intense. He apparently planned to show no mercy until her satisfaction was complete.
He continued to administer his own brand of sweet torture to her now swollen clit. He flicked his pointed tongue over her sensitive bud, and alternated with gentle sucking that reduced her to pleading for him to make her come. She fisted her hands in his hair as the sensations steadily intensified. He seemed oblivious to her nearly yanking his hair out by the roots, as he devoured her dripping wet pussy. He gripped her hips to pull her even closer as he buried his face between her legs.
