On My Radar: Taking the Score (Tall, Dark, and Texan #2) by Kate Meader

I was so excited to see Taking the Score pop up on Goodreads. I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Even the Score. It was light, sexy, fun, and oh so hot! I’m looking forward to reading the next installment. Kate Meader is a wonderful storyteller so it’s definitely on my TBR!

Taking the Score (Tall, Dark, and Texan #2)
by Kate Meader

Release Date: February 15, 2015



A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.

Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.

Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.



Originally from Ireland, Kate cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Mills & Boon thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, and she’s there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines who can match their men quip for quip.

Kate is represented by Nicole Resciniti at The Seymour Agency.


  1. She got married in a tenth century castle nestled in the hills of Florence, Italy. Read all about it.
  2. She hates peanut butter, pretzels, and ketchup. These dislikes are enough to label her “un-American” by her husband.
  3. She’s been known to bitch slap people who say “irregardless”, “supposably”, and “for all intensive purposes.” Not really, she would never resort to violence. Instead she will glare at them until they become very, very uncomfortable.
  4. She didn’t write any fiction until well into her thirties, proving it is never too late to follow your dream.
  5. She is a dual citizen: Irish and American. When she became an American citizen, her husband played a prank on her that was 17 years in the making. One day, she’ll share that story but for now, it remains locked in the vault!
