About the author

Cate Thorne

Hello, Dear Readers!

I am a small-town country girl with big-city ambitions. Muscled hunks are my thing! I love reading bewitching tales of seduction and romance and passionate lovemaking with stunning men.

My first little girl thrills were from seeing the sexy studs in the underwear catalogues my gay uncle had lying around his cabin in the mountains. How come none of my boy classmates ever looked like that? But as all of us women know, a handsome male face and body are only part of the attraction. Hotness is the spice; imagination, kind words, inner strength and confidence, a romantic nature, and the hint of a naughty, bad-boy streak are the main course.

My fantasies take me all over the world, from walking hand in hand with a gorgeous guy in the moonlight on the ramparts of Mont St-Michel as the tide rushes in, to candlelight dinners with a dark, broad shouldered man in a tux in the splendor of 1920s San Francisco, to leaning back into the strong embrace of a rock hard and warm-skinned river guide after going over a Class V rapid on the Pacuare River in Costa Rica, to riding horseback on a dude ranch with lusty wranglers under a blue Montana sky that goes on forever.

You never know where I might go next. I invite you to come along with me and imagine the life of your dreams.
