Banker Katie James has a serious thing for romance novels. She’d almost rather settle for a fictional boyfriend than risk her heart on a flesh-and-blood man. Besides, the only real guy she’s remotely interested in is her rich, unattainable client, the mysterious Cooper Maxwell.

Looking less like the ultra-conservative man she knows and more like a drop-dead sexy character from one of her books, Cooper crashes Katie’s 29th birthday party. But one too many drinks lands Katie in uncharted territory… Cooper’s bedroom!

Drunk on love, Katie dives headfirst into the relationship only to discover that Cooper is keeping secrets… dangerous ones. As if things couldn’t get worse, her meddling mother makes a surprise visit, digging up a whole new set of problems.

Who would have guessed having an assassin for a boyfriend would be the least of her worries?

Such a cute and quirky romance! I can totally see myself doing the some of the things that Katie James does because she is that kind of character. She is normal woman who can’t find her Prince Charming so she goes home to her imaginary cat and rereads her favorite romance novels. Then how she deals with falling for Cooper, I totally get her!

All during the book I kept going back and forth. Was Cooper a spy, does he worked for a secret government agency or maybe he was a hit man after all. I have to say what he really does is so completely not what I had expected. What surprised me even more was the way this book ended, I did not expect that!

So if you are looking for a fun romance that keeps you on your toes, well you will enjoy To Katie With Love!


Erica Lucke Dean

After walking away from her career as a business banker to pursue writing full-time, Erica moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to a small tourist town in the North Georgia Mountains where she lives in a 90-year-old haunted farmhouse with her workaholic husband, her 180lb lap dog, and at least one ghost.

When she’s not busy writing or tending to her collection of crazy chickens, diabolical ducks, and a quintet of piglets, hell bent on having her for dinner, she’s either reading bad fan fiction or singing karaoke in the local pub. Much like the main character in her newest book,To Katie With Love, Erica is a magnet for disaster, and has been known to trip on air while walking across flat surfaces.

How she’s managed to survive this long is one of life’s great mysteries

    This book sounds great, maybe I can learn something from Katie…put my books down long enough to meet Mr Right…Hmmm maybe after the next book…or the one after or the one after!!!!

  2. Barrie says:

    We have a lapdog too although he is “only” 76 lbs! I can’t imagine one 180lbs but gotta love them! How very cool that you have at least one ghost at home…I hope they are friendly! The book sounds great and I can’t wait to see what else will be coming from you!

      My lapdog might weigh more these days, he’s only 3 and I haven’t weighed him in a while. Our ghost is very friendly, though mischievous on occasion. Feel free to pop by my blog for more adventures on my farm 🙂

      There were a lot of life events that inspired this book Meghan, and a lot of real people inspired some of the characters. I’ve done several fun interviews along the tour if you’d like to know more. 🙂
