Happy summer, Dear Readers!

I’m in the middle of plotting a new series. I’ll be wrapping up The Brides of Wishmore series this October with THE GROOM SAYS YES. And then what? I’m mum. I’m still playing with all the twists and turns in my head. But it will involve a duke, it will involve London, and there will be lusty fun, love and laughter. (Now to just get it all on paper!)

However, to tide everyone over until October, Avon Books is reissuing two of my favorites.  THE WEDDING WAGER,  where Miss Mary Gates goes toe-to-toe with her arch rival Tye Barlow for a prize horse, will be out  June 28th with a beautiful new cover.

Then, NIGHTINGALE, a novella I wrote that was featured in the anthology THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY will be ready for download August 26th. I adore the premise of the collection. Each of us—Eloisa James, Victoria Alexander, Liz Carlyle, and myself—wrote a story of love lost and reclaimed, of that one person in our past who we sometimes think upon and wonder what if? I love Jemma and Dane’s story and am very happy Avon is re-releasing it.

Also, take a good look at these lovely covers. Other than the gorgeous green, do you notice anything else? Like, maybe they used the same model for the hero? Tall, dark, and handsome—that is the order for the day.


The blonde heroines are just by chance. Usually, I rotate my heroines’ hair color: a redhead in this book, a brunette next, and here comes another blonde. I want to be an equal opportunity hair color author.

Oh, yes, and I’m finally using my Goodreads account. Come friend me there. Or tweet me @maxwellcathy. And, of course, I’m on Facebook.

Stay out of the heat. Read, read, read! And love to you all!
