The Gambler’s Daughters (#1)

New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell begins a spectacular new series, the Gambler’s Daughters. Three aristocratic sisters must use their wits and wiles to make their ways in Regency London…only to learn the path to making a brilliant society marriage isn’t easy—especially when Love gets in the way!

To Marry a Duke…

Once there were three Irish sisters—Gwendolyn, Dara, and Elise—who had to fend for themselves when their gambler of a father disappeared, leaving them with an unscrupulous cousin. Dara hatches a daring plan: they gamble what little they own to finance a London season. Her goal: to use their looks and their wits to find a duke to marry for each sister!

Maxwell delivers a fabulously fun battle of sexes that brilliantly showcases her flair for hilarious yet heartfelt storytelling and insightful characterization.” – Booklist review / Her First Desire

Dear Wonderful Readers,

            Thank you for visiting me! 

This is my internet home.  Well, that and FaceBook.  I’m usually there on a daily basis, but I check in here as well.

 First off—what a year 2022 was. I finished up the “Logical Men’s” series with HIS LESSONS ON LOVE.  Now on to a new series: The Gambler’s Daughters!  This one has been fun.  As always, I love pitting strong-willed women who aren’t afraid to buck tradition against men who aren’t afraid to take ‘em on.  Just like real life, hmmm?  A KISS IN THE MOONLIGHT will be hitting shelves on March 28th.  I think the cover is dreamy.  And I hope you enjoy following the Lanscarr sisters as they take on London society as well as their own desires.

2022 saw me traveling.  Am I the only one who felt a bit rusty being out and about?  I’m heading out in 2023 as well.  I am a definite yes for Romance Genre Con in Kansas City. It is sponsored by the Mid-Continental Public Library and will be August 3, 4 & 5th. Romance Genre Con is the library’s gift to readers and it is free to attend.  I’ll have more information as we grow closer to the date.        

Now, here is my new year’s wish for you—that 2023 be one of health, happiness, and peace.  I know that every time we turn around, it seems like there is some new turmoil, whether in our personal lives on the world.  Please, my dear friends, lead with love.

All my best,

for the books you love to read!

I’ve Been Out and About

So, pardon a rather boring post of my travels. I’m happy to be home but I enjoyed every second of my venture East. My daughter received her promotion to Lieutenant Commander in the Coast Guard.  She is our highest ranking service member to date.  Of course I had to be on hand for the promotion ceremony which…
