Happy birthday to you.

The RWA National Conference is now underway in Atlanta. Keynote speaker Cathy Maxwell is celebrating her birthday today ... she'll be laughing with her fans at the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing (link). I wish I was there to deliver a birthday cake with one big candle! Cathy is always ready to celebrate life. Her can do attitude is reflected in her historical romances, such as her recent re-release, MARRIED IN HASTE, Book 1 in the Marriage series,
New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s classic romance Married in Haste is a fan-favorite marriage-of-convenience tale that resonates with unforgettable passion and love.
Brenn Owens, The Earl of Merton, has come to London to choose a bride. A sexy war hero, he has his pick of the season’s debutantes, and once he spies beautiful Tess Hamilton no other will do.
But Tess has a dark secret she’s desperate to hide—she has no choice but to marry quickly before her family’s ruin becomes grist for the gossip mill. She accepts Brenn’s sudden proposal without telling him the truth, but can she really marry him without feeling she’s betrayed him—especially when he offers ecstasy beyond her wildest dreams? And will he see her subterfuge as a lie?
Cathy Maxwell’s Married in Haste is a historical romance to fall in love with.
