Guest Post with SOS Aloha + The Devil's Heart by Cathy Maxwell #Giveaway (International)



Meet Cathy:
Bestselling novelist Cathy Maxwell, a storyteller since childhood, embraces her writing romance as a way to express her belief that "loving well is the greatest adventure of all," and to explore her fascination with the Regency.

Born in Olathe, Kansas, Cathy's family roots go back to the Mayflower and the Revolutionary War. She has long called Virginia home, noting she is "a Virginian by choice, but a Kansan by nature." She worked in television news and spent six years in the Navy. She attended Air Force intelligence school, worked in the Pentagon and did a tour with Naval Intelligence.

Comfort Reading with Cathy Maxwell and THE DEVIL’S HEART

Today is the Giant Book Fair at the RT Booklovers Convention in Kansas City.

If I was so fortunate to be at this event, I would first seek out Cathy Maxwell in the middle of the alphabetized authors. Cathy Maxwell is my comfort read … and lately I’ve needed much comforting with my husband in Korea and the news so bleak. But I know Cathy would do more than “comfort” me … she’d make me laugh. Cathy loves life … and shares it with readers. Several years ago, I attended her book signing for IN THE HIGHLANDER’S BED at the Andrews AFB Exchange. It was entertaining to watch her engage with the shoppers – many who did not read romance. In fact, one retiree commented on Cathy’s author photo on the back cover, “You look so happy. You must love what you do.” And the retiree bought the book – it was probably her first romance!

I suspect I’d hear the same remarks at the Giant Book Fair. I’d also hear how fans are excited for THE DEVIL’S HEART, Book Three in the Chattan Series, available April 30 from Avon Romance:

When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above.

Lady Margret Chattan, one of the most desirable women in all of England, has no interest whatsoever in marriage. When her brother’s lives are put in danger, she travels to the Scottish Highlands, intent on saving them. There she meets Heath Macnachtan, who is trying to find out who murdered his own brother. Together, they team up to investigate the powerful curse that is behind the deaths, but instead find themselves falling in love.

Cathy takes readers into the heart of the Highlands. Sigh. Scotland. She delivers flawed characters who discover that love transcends perfection and even a curse. I recently received my copy of THE DEVIL’S HEART … it joins the ranks of other Cathy Maxwell books as a comfort read.
