Aloha to Cathy Maxwell and A LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE


Hear, ye!  Hear, ye!  The drought is over!  Cathy Maxwell's latest novella, A LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE, is now available ...

Grandmother, grandmother, who shall it be
Who shall it be who will marry me?
Duke, Earl, a powerful marquess?
When my heart is given to Fyclan Morris…

In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell's new novella, beautiful Jennifer Tarleton has no lack of noble suitors, but the only man who captures her attention is the one her father will never let her marry: Fyclan Morris. He's a brash adventurer, witty, courageous…and Irish!  Even worse, her father blames her for their reversal of fortune…

And it's a fortune—or rather, his grandmother the fortune teller—who foretold that Fyclan would meet "the one,", a love prophesied in the stars. He vows nothing will stand in the way of making Jennifer his bride, but is the price too high? Or is a thing called love worth every challenge?


Cathy Maxwell’s enthusiasm for life graces the pages of her books and are the topic of the talks she gives to readers and writers groups about her chosen career.

She is no stranger to the limelight. After graduating from college, Cathy started off as a news broadcaster. She later decided reporting was boring compared to making news and joined the navy. After a successful stint in Naval intelligence, including a tour with the Pentagon, Cathy proceeded to pursue writing. Now, she has 30 published romance novels (and five anthologies) to her credit, many of them spending significant time on the New York Times and USA Today mass market best-seller lists. It’s clear that Cathy has succeeded in achieving her goals to a rare degree!

This native of Olathe, Kansas now resides in Virginia with children, horses, dogs, and cats. When not writing or tending her beloved animals, she is likely to be busy with one of many local charities or packing her bags to research her next novel. Cathy’s motto is “travel light” and she enjoys meeting her fans all over the world.

  12. I love chocolate, preferably topped with caramel, toasted pecans and whipped cream. Thanks for the giveaway. I'm looking forward to Cathy's newest series.

  13. Blue Bell's Pumpkin Pecan Spice. Sadly, since they've been offline most of the summer, it'll be a minor miracle for them to make it this year. :-(

  15. Breyer's has a Black Raspberry with dark chocolate chunks, but then there's Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia!

  16. I like Baskin and Robbins' Pralines and Cream. There is a small private ice cream parlor, Ultimate Ice Cream, in Asheville, NC that my daughter "supports." They make their own ice-cream and are supporters of their community. She loves their chocolate. I once had a maple bacon ice cream there that was wonderful.
