Author Katherine Blakeman recommends Ransom To Love by Chloe Keto
Welcome to the first edition of Authors Getting Rec’d! Each week, we’ll bring you a new sapphic book recommendation from a favorite sapphic author. Find out what authors are reading and why, plus read about the personal connections between authors and books.
This week, Katherine Blakeman, who is good friends with Chloe Keto, explains why Ransom to Love is a must read.
Katherine has read and reread Ransom to Love many times. This sapphic contemporary romantic comedy was a winner from the blurb. Computer geekery, trans representation and cats? Count us all in!
Let’s hear more from Katherine about why Ransom to Love is a must read:
This book is Chloe Keto’s debut and is absolutely imbued with love. The protagonist, Teri, has had a rough ride and it’s landed her in desperate times that call for desperate measures – hacking companies using ransomware. Except… when Teri tries to help Sophie, the person whose system she’s hacking, she ends up being attracted to her. When Sophie reciprocates these feelings, a beautiful and heart-warming romance blossoms, where secrets are revealed, and hearts are healed.

Katherine Blakeman is the author of The Summer We’ve Had, which has an interesting connection to Chloe Keto.
Here’s Katherine to tell us more:
Chloe was a beta reader for The Summer We’ve Had! She saw two vastly different versions during 2022, and gave me some very valuable advice for both. We first met properly at the South Coast Lesfic Hang Out in Crawley, England, in May 2022, and after spending the best part of a day together we hit it off! Ransom To Love and The Summer We’ve Had both share depressed protagonists, and love interests who vastly improve their lives and bring them joy.
Thank you, Katherine, for sharing what book is on your nightstand right now and paying it forward by showing some book love to a fellow SapphFic author!
