About the Author

Cat Sebastian writes steamy, upbeat historical romances. They usually take place in the Regency, generally have at least one LGBTQ+ main character, and always have happy endings. Before writing, Cat was a lawyer and a teacher. She enjoys crossword puzzles, geeking out over birds, gardening badly, and-of course-reading. In high school, her parents went away for a week, and instead of throwing raucous parties, Cat read Middlemarch. Even worse, Cat remembers little of a trip through Europe because she was busy reading Mansfield Park. Her proudest moment was when she realized her kids were shaping up to be hopeless bookworms too. Currently, her favorite genres are romance, mystery and fantasy. Cat lives with her husband, three kids, and dog in an improbably small house. After growing up in the northeast, she now lives in a part of the south where every body of water seems to contain alligators or sharks, and every restaurant serves biscuits and gravy. She likes the biscuits, but not so much the alligators.

Reviews

With The Queer Principles of Kit Webb, Cat Sebastian's newest, we get the full Georgian-era experience: coffeehouses, lace cuffs, noblemen in pastel silks and ballad-worthy highwaymen whose thieving days are almost, almost behind them....Highwayman, it turns out, is a pitch-perfect role for a queer historical hero. If you're already risking your neck to steal purses and harry the gentry, you'll think nothing of risking your neck for someone you love... The book does not so much tear down class boundaries as dynamite the very idea of class itself, which is becoming a satisfying theme in Sebastian's work. Laws that exist only to hurt people are unjust; systems that depend on people's misery should be subverted and dismantled at every chance. The right to love and be loved as we are is a compass that always points toward justice.--New York Times Book Review
"The Queer Principles of Kit Webb kept me up all night! I simply couldn't put it down.--Tessa Dare, New York Times bestselling author
Cat Sebastian is one of my favorite writers in romance or any other genre. The Queer Principles of Kit Webb, like all her other books, is intelligent, wryly funny, deeply thoughtful, empathetic, and romantic as can be. I absolutely loved it.
--Olivia Dade, author of Spoiler Alert
The Queer Principles of Kit Webb is by turns witty, heartfelt, sexy, and deeply emotional. I devoured it and am clamoring for more.--Eva Leigh, author of My Fake Rake
"Wielding a rapier-sharp wit and displaying an exceptional gift for insightful characterization, Sebastian fashions another fiercely romantic, fabulously sexy m/m love story that not only delivers a delicious surfeit of slow-burn sexual chemistry but also deftly illustrates the true complexity of all human relationships."--Booklist
"Their sexual tension is a living, breathing thing on the page, but merci-fully, Sebastian doesn't leave them in want for long. And there's plenty of sparkling dialogue to go with their physical connection. Kit has very clear opinions about the privilege Percy is fighting to protect, and their conver-sations about class and politics are uniformly excellent and fascinating. Kit Webb will surprise and delight not only fans of Sebastian and queer historical romance but also readers who are new to both."--BookPage (starred review)
Cat Sebastian is an author at the absolute top of her game."--Erin Sterling, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex Hex
Sebastian's prose is entertaining and delightful, with many steamy scenes...It's also full of intelligent and thought-provoking political debates...An irresistible story of love and adventure that will delight both newcomers and regular readers of queer romance.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
