Kate Worth writes the kind of love stories she likes to read... unexpected, poignant, and emotionally satisfying. Her heroines are layered and complex; her heroes are three-dimensional and swoon worthy.

Kate's first novel, The Promise, is now available on amazon.com.

The Promise, is set in Victorian England. The heroine, Jane Gray, is a warmhearted pastry chef and mother of an adopted daughter named Pip. Her world is turned upside down when Pip is claimed by her birth mother's family. Soon the girl's uncle, Lord Finn Wallace, finds himself intrigued by virtuous Jane. He tries to ignore her appeal; she is far from his usual type and not the sort to indulge in an affair. As his desire for her grows, he goes to extreme lengths to make Jane his own.

In her next book, The Art of Desire, Kate tells the story of Maddie Waltham, the daughter of a country squire and failed inventor from Cornwall. Maddie has an unexpected adventure at thirteen when she rescues a sexy scoundrel who is being pursued by an irate husband. Years later, she crosses paths with Lord Will Ashbourne again, and he is given the chance to return the favor by rescuing her from an unwanted marriage. (It doesn't hurt that he is helping himself in the bargain). Sparks fly between Will and Maddie, who has always harbored a secret crush for the devilish lord.

Kate began writing two decades ago as a reporter for a small town newspaper where she covered everything from vandalism to kittens up a tree. Her series of articles on an abduction-murder case earned her an award for Excellence in Journalism from the Virginia Press Association. She went on to win many VPA awards for writing, photography, and page design.

As a child, Kate never lived anywhere much longer than two or three years. Her father's work with the State Department took the family to Iran, Ghana, Singapore, Germany, Ecuador, Chile, Turkey, and Greece.

She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Virginia Romance Writers, and the Washington, DC Romance Writers.
