Katie in Love by Chloe Thurlow ♥ Spotlight & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Erotic Romance)

Katie Boyd has nothing in common with Tom Bridge, the volunteer doctor she meets at a party – except in bed she finds a passion to match her own. Tom is intense, puzzling, a man who cares about others and compels Katie to question her own life drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene.

When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?

Katie in Love is a compelling erotic-romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.

Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware, Chloe Thurlow was described by KM Dylan on Amazon as “…the Anaïs Nin of our times.” With Katie in Love – her sixth novel – Thurlow reveals a writer at the height of her powers.
A very unique story and a VERY interesting read!

Katie in Love is unlike any romance novel I have ever read. It is written almost like an interior monologue, like I was placed inside of Katie's brain and could hear her thoughts and see her memories. It reminded me very much of the way we all think, I suppose, but to actually CAPTURE that and put it into a coherent story REALLY takes talent!

I enjoyed Chloe's insertion of random facts on an array of topics from human behavior to, well, romance novel writing, and everything in between.

I also really enjoyed the relationship between Katie in Tom, especially in the beginning. Their first encounter was a little unorthodox, but what developed from that made for a great story. A great, smoking hot, erotic story, that is :)

Although this story takes place in England and some of the vernacular differs from that which I am used to, I found this book to be a refreshing variation from the norm in this genre, and I think you will too!

My name is Chloe Thurlow
I write erotic books and my Mother doesn’t speak to me.

I am a night person, an insomniac, the girl at the bar who looks like she should have gone home and maybe has no home to go to. I am thin, chic, in an abstract sort of way. I have high cheekbones, long legs, perhaps too thin, and I like dancing. I compose my work in the dead hours between two and six while London sleeps and the early morning planes follow the Thames into Heathrow carrying bankers and businessmen hoping to make it in the greatest city on earth – London, where I was born on a cold December night with a full-moon overhead and snow covering the garden.

Writing is a sickness, an ailment, an addiction. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about what I have written that day and, when I do go to bed, I lay sleeplessly thinking about what I am going to write when I get up and start again the following day.

When I do sleep, I sleep badly, in spite of the magnets under my mattress that are supposed to orientate my body north to south so the dragon lines pass through the invisible portal at the top of my skull and down to my feet, my best feature, an old boyfriend once said. The last thing he ever said, now I come to think about it.

When I drag myself from bed, I have a long shower and make a pot of coffee. I like Starbucks House Blend, which shocks some of my friends. I hide the packet when they come to call and serve smoky Masala Chai Spice tea with cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Yuck.

I have worked as a tutor, in marketing, and for a women’s magazine which involved writing captions for interiors and combat with photographers fixated on depth and apertures. Regular working doesn’t suit me, it interferes with writing, and now I freelance as a waitress, not in a restaurant, but at corporate ‘events’ where masters of the universe congratulate themselves by drinking buckets of champagne and falling over.

My new novel Katie in Love is officially released 21 March 2015. It is about a girl with long legs who likes dancing and is trying not to be promiscuous now she has met a man working to save the planet’s poor and downtrodden. He is a volunteer doctor, so kind and selfless, the girl of my story wonders if she is in the process of doing the one thing she vowed never to do – fall in love.

If you want to get in touch, drop me a message and, if I’m not tied up, I’ll do my best to get back to you –
