Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In her tenure at as editor-of-chief of Cosmopolitan, Kate White has used hip, fun, sexy copy to bolster circulation by over 500,000 copies. Now the author of the bestselling Bailey Weggins novels uses the same formula to quick-start her women's guide to activating men's moan zones.
Publishers Weekly
No doubt, there's a built-in market for this unique self-help book by the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, namely the millions of Cosmo readers who, if we're to believe White, are simply desperate to know everything from "How to Find the Time to Do the Things You Really, Really Want" to "The Most Neglected Moan Zone on a Man's Body." Much of what White has to offer, at least in the areas of career development, time management and even, to a degree, appearance, is good old-fashioned common sense. White also makes sure on nearly every page that readers will know how well connected she is, dishing on celebrities and other important types she's dazzled and been dazzled by. As to the title topic, White's advice ranges from sensible ("Guys have sex fears, too") to downright silly. In a chapter titled "9 Extra Little Orgasm Tricks," White advises readers to get a Brazilian wax. Her source for this tip? Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, who "swore by it when we interviewed her." (June 14) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Kate White is one busy woman. When she isn’t helming Cosmopolitan magazine as editor-in-chief, she is writing her wonderfully wicked mystery novel series starring Bailey Weggins or penning sly self-help volumes like How to Set His Thighs on Fire.

Biography

As the editor-in-chief of famed magazine Cosmopolitan, Kate White knows women inside and out. She knows what women like, and she especially knows what they like to read. So it's no surprise that her deliciously decadent mystery novels are such a hit with the ladies.

White came from a strong background in the magazine world. Since getting her foot in the door at Glamour magazine by winning their Top Ten College Women contest, she has worked as an editorial assistant at Glamour, later becoming a feature writer and columnist for the magazine. Following her stint at Glamour, she worked her way up to editor-in-chief for Child, then Working Woman, McCall's, and Redbook. In 1998, White became editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan.

Since joining the ranks of Cosmo, White has spear-headed a spin-off magazine called Cosmo Style, started a channel called Cosmo Radio on Sirius Radio, and published books such as Cosmo Kama Sutra through the magazine's Cosmo Books. She is also responsible for driving Cosmopolitan's readership through the roof. Since taking control of the magazine, she has increased its circulation by over 500,000. So, how can a woman with such a full plate find time to also launch a successful fiction-writing career? Well, as she says on her web site, "I don't really have any other hobbies other than cooking. I can't sing, play a musical instrument, excel at sports, draw, quilt, knit or decoupage. So writing mysteries is my hobby."

That hobby has led White to create sultry true-crime reporter Bailey Weggins, who has sashayed her way through three novels since If Looks Could Kill was published in 2002. The following year, Weggins reappeared in White's second perfect-for-the-beach mystery. A Body to Die For is rife with White's trademark wit and sexiness and became another big seller. The book not only pleased White's readers but also garnered her some well-deserved praise from the press. Publishers Weekly, which was critical of If Looks Could Kill, applauded A Body to Die For, saying that "fans will find Bailey's sassy wit as engaging as ever and are sure to admire the skill with which White pulls together all the threads."

In 2005, White published her third Bailey Weggins novel, Over Her Dead Body. This time out, Bailey loses her job at Gloss magazine (no doubt a fictional stand-in for Cosmo). However, things get hotter than ever when she begins covering celebrity crime for Buzz magazine and her new boss is murdered. Again, White is pleasing fans and critics alike.

White's most recent release is a brief break from Weggins's exploits, but it certainly isn't a break from the kind of sly blend of humor and sex that readers have come to expect from her. How to Set His Thighs on Fire: 86 Red-Hot Lessons on Love, Life, Men, and (Especially) Sex is a slightly satirical, high-spirited take on the kinds of self-help guides found in women's mags such as, well, Cosmopolitan. But fans of Bailey Weggins should not fear -- White is currently working on the next installment of her hit series.

Chapter One

How to Set His Thighs on Fire

As most women know, it doesn't take a huge amount of effort to seduce a guy. A simple phrase like "Why don't you drop your pants?" will usually suffice.

But there's seduction and then there's make-his-thighs-go-up-in-flames seduction, the kind that will have him writhing in anticipation. The latter is so much more erotic and memorable. And it actually can make the experience more physically rewarding for him, intensifying his orgasm.

Three-alarm seduction isn't difficult, but it does take some effort. You'll want to tease, tantalize, and torture him.

How to Tease:

This is where you just hint at what's going to happen so that you start a slow burn. Wear something provocative that shows plenty of skin. Bite your lip as you listen to him talk. Use suggestive language without coming right out and saying what you have in mind-like "I love it when the weather is hot and steamy like this, don't you?"

How to Tantalize:

Now turn up the heat a couple of notches. Let him know you weren't kidding with all that teasing by saying "I want you." In a whisper describe some of the naughty things you'd like to do to him. Take hishand and run your tongue along the palm. Slip your hand between his thighs and stroke him.

How to Torture:

Prolong the burning. Rather than just falling into bed, do a striptease in which you peel away your clothes one item at a time. Or peel away his clothes, one piece at a time. Or give him a back rub and drag your hands over his butt and down along his hips.

Remember that even though guys always seem eager to get to the main event, taking your time really does increase his pleasure.
