More About the Author

It's such a strange twist of fate that I ended up as a writer. I swore up and down that I would never write, but everyone always shook their head and said, "Kathleen, you're going to be a writer." As fate would have it, they were right, and I wasn't (don't you hate that?)

My favorite part of writing is creating my characters. I fall in love with everyone in each book, and it's pure magic when it all comes to life.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sean O'Sullivan, a lawyer, is also part owner of the Prime bar with Daniel and Gabe, his two brothers. Gabe actually runs the bar and Daniel takes care of the books. Sean helps whenever needed and he handles the legalities of running the bar. He loves his life the way it is. His days are filled with his chosen profession and his nights are spent either helping out at Prime or with one of the many women who love him. He is not ready to settle down.

Cleo Hollings is the City Deputy Mayor. With all the responsibilities she has, there is usually little time for a social life or even sleep. She has a demanding career at the office, and takes care of her mother with Alzheimer's at home. Though she expects a lot from her employees, she expects no less, and at times even more, from herself. Between her demanding job, her mother and her nightly dreams that leave her unfulfilled, she craves more. In fact, she never realized how lonely she was until Sean O'Sullivan walks into her office. However, she is only looking for a quick escape. She does not have time for anything permanent.

Ever since renovations started at Prime, there have been problems with City Hall. Though Sean has handled each problem as it arose, Prime has now been shut down by several departments, all covered by City Hall. Deciding it is time to go to the top, Sean charms and bribes his way into the City Deputy Mayor's office. However, he is captivated when he sees the lovely politician for the first time. When Cleo promises to look into the situation, Sean is not satisfied and knows he must keep after her. After a couple meetings, he can't get her out of his mind. He knows she is `the one,' but wonders why she won't go out with him at night.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sean O'Sullivan loves women. He never gets romantically attached and always lets go of each woman in some way that she leaves happy. Should Sean ever need any of his former lovers to help him with anything, they would jump at the chance. In fact, his network of women is how Sean keeps the family's landmark bar, Prime, open. For the past two years, someone in the mayor's office has been sending a lot of trouble Prime's way. Gabe, one of Sean's brothers, runs and operates Prime. There has been citations for health violations, electrical problems, street problems, and even historical problems. All citations without cause. But Sean is a medical malpractice lawyer. In the jungle of law, med-mal defense lawyers were the carnivores and Sean has decided it is time to challenge Tarzan (a.k.a. City Hall).

Ironically, it is Jane who really gets things done in City Hall. Cleo Hollins, Deputy Mayor of New York City, is running on very little sleep. In Cleo's world, vulnerabilities were carefully masked and hidden because there was always someone there waiting to take advantage. Currently on her plate is a four-day-old transit strike. Over eight million commuters are trying to get to work, and there is no buses, no subways. The last thing Cleo has time to worry about is a bar. Cleo cannot deny how attracted she is to Sean, but the transit negotiations take priority over her hormones. That is, until Sean taps into his network and helps deal with the strike. Perhaps they could help each other out, in business and in bed.

***** There is more going on than meets the eye here. Cleo also lives with and cares for her mother, who has Alzheimer's.
