The Hawaiian phrase of the day is:
No kekahi o kakou ka pilikia malaila pu kakou a pau.
Should one of us get in trouble we will all go that way.
Lady Margaret has lived in the shadow a family curse:
When a Chattan male falls in love,
strike his heart with fire from above...
Her older brother, Neal, fell in love with his childhood friend in LYON'S BRIDE (link). Margaret hoped her second brother, Harry, could reverse the curse in in Scotland. Instead, he fell in love, too, in THE SCOTTISH WITCH (link). So now it's time for Margaret to take matters into her own hand in THE DEVIL'S HEART, available April 30 from Avon Romance:
New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell continues the her popular historical romance series, the Chattan Curse, with The Devil’s Heart.
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.
Exceptionally entertaining and charming, The Devil’s Heart mixes a well-crafted love story with complex characters and pulse-pounding adventure.

Before Margaret can take a stand, she has to take a road trip in a 1824 coach with her maid, driver, coachman, valet, and four armed outriders. The coachman estimates it will take three to six days to travel from Glenfinnan to Loch Awe. Today, it would take two hours via Fort William and Glen Nevis (link to Google map). Two hours gives me just enough time to read A DEVIL'S HEART.
But a six day coach ride allows me to read Cathy Maxwell's entire library of 24 novels and 6 novellas in anthologies ... so I would jump in the coach with Margaret!
