One Sizzling Summer is a fabulous read for a cold winter’s night! It is my first published novel, and quite special to me. It is about Ava, an American college professor, who goes to England to complete her doctoral degree. She meets British actor, Quinton Worthington, and the chemistry between them is flammable! They share a summer of passion, but choose to keep their focus on the career goals they’ve made for themselves. Will they make room for romance, or will they only have the memory of … One Sizzling Summer?

ONE SIZZLING SUMMER This reviewer’s rating: 5 – Outstanding
Plenty of believable heat, mature acting characters – no neediness here. Good dialogue and a good plot. I must also mention it is well crafted and well executed, with no errors in sight – fantastic!!
If you’re looking for a sexy, M/F romance, with some extra heat, no great dramas, with a charming leading man and a smart and sexy woman (thank you Ms Patrick), then I’d say this should suit. I really enjoyed it.
Kate has written a great story! I felt like I was there with the heroine as she enjoyed her sizzling summer with the hero! It’s my understanding that this is the first published work for this author and I, for one, will be waiting for the next one! Nicely done, Kate Patrick!

When they reached the bed, he set her on her feet and threw back the covers with one hand while still holding hers with the other. She got on the bed and knelt facing him, reaching out, beckoning him to join her there in the middle of that huge four-poster bed with what seemed to be eyes filled with anticipation of what was to come. Quinton looked at Ava as if seeing her in a whole new light. She was smart, funny, beautiful, and for the moment, looking very vulnerable as she knelt there, looking ready and willing to give her entire being over to him. He placed a knee on the edge of the bed and brought her hand to his lips, kissing it softly as he moved onto the bed, crossing over to her on his knees.
He pulled her up so she would be facing him as he held her against his chest. He kissed her with tenderness as he cupped her upturned face in his hands.
He looked deeply into her darkened eyes for a moment, carefully considering his words. “If you have any doubts about this, we can stop now and just hold each other for the rest of the night. I realize we are moving fast. I do not want you to wake up regretting this night together.”
Ava slid her arms around his neck and kissed him back as tenderly as he had kissed her just moments before. She lowered her eyes to his lips and traced them with her fingertip as she said with surety, “I won’t regret this night with you. Not only is it something I want very much, it is something I need even more. So…no matter what happens after tonight, this is right. I expect no more than these hours we have right now. Your words mean more than you’ll ever know. I won’t forget them. Now…I think I owe you some attention.”
With those words, she kissed his mouth and pulled him down onto the bed beside her, where she let her hand rove unhurriedly over the expanse of his chest, kissing him fully as she brushed lightly over his hardened nipples with her fingernails.
Quinton inhaled sharply as her fingertips blazed a fiery trail on down his torso and, at last, mercifully, came to rest on his fully engorged cock.
Ava encircled her fingers around his shaft and slid them down the length of it, realizing its immensity, knowing how their union would be more mind-blowing because of it. The oil from their bath made her efforts to please him all the more satisfying, and when she replaced her hand with her mouth, Quinton gripped handfuls of linen, groaning in sweet agony.
Ava licked and sucked him in what appeared to be complete abandon, as if wanting to satisfy not only his desire, but her own. Quinton wondered what she would think if she realized she could nearly bring him to his knees with just a flick or stroke of her tongue. She slipped her lips over the tip of his cock, continuing to slide downward until she held him totally in her mouth.
Quinton moaned as he propped himself up on his elbows, watching her through half-closed lids as she slid her velvet lips back and forth, faster and faster, until he began to thrust his hips upward, mating with her mouth. He reveled in the intense pleasure she gave him, thinking it couldn’t be any better when she astounded him by pushing his knees upward and out to gain better access to the heavy sac between his legs, which she lathed with her tongue like melting ice cream on a hot summer day. She gently drew a testicle into her warm mouth to suckle, looking up at him as she swirled her tongue lazily around it. She lavished the same treatment on the other. The fact that she took her time drove him to a whole new level of pleasure. He felt as if the lust inside him were coiled up and hissing, ready to strike any moment as she returned her attention to his cock.
“Now, Ava. I need you right now,” he said with urgency, fisting his hand in her hair.
She crawled up to his chest, and with one swift move, Quinton flipped her onto her back, plunging his tongue deeply into her warm mouth, tasting himself as he sucked greedily at her tongue. He nudged her legs apart with his knee and pressed himself at her entrance, lifting his head to look into her eyes as he began to gradually ease himself into her.
She wrapped her legs around his waist, lifting her hips to meet his gentle thrusts, and nodded, sensing he was concerned about hurting her due to his generous girth.
But it wasn’t until she met his piercing gaze and said in a voice barely above a whisper, “Yes, Quinton…fuck me now,” that he relinquished all restraint and pressed farther still into her wet, slick paradise. She bowed her back and cried out as he completely entered her, holding himself stock-still as she enveloped him by contracting her muscles around him.
