Hello and welcome!

I'm Kate O'Keeffe and I write fun, romantic chick lit and contemporary romance stories. For me, love and humour combined = perfection!

Many of my books are set in beautiful New Zealand, and they are all feel-good stories with happily ever afters - the type that give you those warm fuzzies inside we all adore. All the feels!

So, dive on in. I so hope you find something here to enjoy.

Happy reading!

She’s in hot pursuit of The One, he’s in hot pursuit of her. Can she see what’s been in front of her all these years?

Set in the fabulous city of San Francisco and beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this is my first foray as a writer into the wonderful world of contemporary romance! Told from both the girl and the guy's perspective, this story is a true romantic comedy, with all the twists and turns readers love in a "will they or won't they" romance.

Find out what happens when die-hard cynic Taylor Jennings is persuaded by a psychic that the next guy she "locks eyes with" will be The One—and that guy just happens to be her best friend's big brother, the hot and sexy Jake Harrison . . .

Check out my new cover!! I wasn't 100% happy with the original cover, so I had this one designed. I love it and think it says a lot about the fun, feel-good nature of the book.

Manhattan Cinderella is Book 1 in my fun new rom com series called Fairy Tales in New York. In these modern day retellings of classic fairy tales, you won't get passive heroines, waiting around for their princes to come and rescue them. No way! These are modern, sassy women, doing it for themselves. But maybe they might just fall in love along the way . . .

Manhattan Cinderella is a fun new contemporary romance—a modern-day retelling of the classic Cinderella story. 

A lost shoe. An heir to a music kingdom. A chance for a fairy tale ending.

Set in New York City, Manhattan Cinderella is a fun and feel-good contemporary romance/ rom com told from both the girl's and the guy's perspective. Read what happens when independent New Yorker Gabriella Davis literally crashes into Tennessee-native Cole Grant. She's determined to make it as a singer, and he's there for another reason altogether—a secret that will change his life forever. Despite neither of them looking for love, attraction sparks between them.

Releases on April 11.
