Kate Appleton


Kate Appleton writes contemporary romantic erotica novels centered around strong, capable, independent women. Kate believes in equality, fair play, foreplay… and steamy sex! Her lusty love scenes are always explicit, inspiring, and intense!

Readers consider her books to be the "antidote" to 50 Shades of Grey and books of its ilk that feature unnecessary violence, demeaning depiction of women and erroneous portrayals of BDSM. Kate’s readers are guaranteed consensual sex with no fear of rape or abuse.

After a successful career in banking and finance, Kate changed gears, took up pottery and hit the craft fair circuit. Since this work took her in and around New England, she decided to set her erotic romantic adventures there.

Her first published book, Orchard Embrace, is a "historical" novel set in 2005 in those heady days before the real estate crash. An unlikely couple find themselves on a luscious thrill-ride of love, lust and mortgages!

Butterfly Kiss, Kate's second book, is finally back in print! Enjoy the exciting exploits of four socialites taking on New Hampshire’s rural environs and handsome natives!

Kate's breakout novel, Against Our Vows, is her third book. Its salacious, bi-curious, vow-bending love scenes have garnered attention from lovers of erotica everywhere.

Her fourth and fifth novels, After the Pain and Come Lucky, are borderline paranormal erotic romances featuring Balthazar, an enigmatic other-worldly figure who dabbles in acupuncture and changing the course of people's lives.

Kate lives and writes in New Hampshire, USA. When she is not writing, she is doing intensive, exhaustive and sweaty research for her books!
