Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas!
  Happy Hanukkah!
      Mele Kalikimaka!

Whatever and however you and yours celebrate the season, may it be merry and bright ... and may you find time to relax.

And you know, just sayin', if that time is spent with a romance, it will undoubtedly leave you sooo much more relaxed and refreshed, right?

But however you choose to kick back, do it remembering that you are special, just as you are. Not all of us live in the perfect world of those TV and magazine commercials, right? And that's okay. 
The DH and I moved into a new home this year, and since the boys won't be home for Christmas, no tree! 
I placed this bowl of ornaments on the coffee table instead, and a big wreath on the wall so we still get that heavenly smell of evergreen.

Thanksgiving was big, Christmas will be small as we celebrate the dear baby's birth. 

By the way , if you have some time, join me and some friends
on Facebook, Saturday December 14th, 
from 3:00-5:00 pm Pacific Time for the
 Paranormal/Fantasy & Sci Fi Romance Holiday Party! 

We'll be giving away free books and other swag, and there will be games! Actually, that's how you win the books. Play a fun game, and be entered to win. 
Hope to see you there.

Saturday Spanks ... and red hot romance!

It's time for Saturday Spanks!

I bring you a peek into my new series, a best-seller at Samhain.

Club 3, Book 1, She's All In

For her sexy Dom, she'll open up...but only love will take her all the way.

When Daisy joins Big Iron Fitness in Portland Oregon, it's to get fit and more comfortable in her skin. But what really makes her sweat is gym owner Dack Humboldt. Watching him pump iron sets off an endorphin rush that has nothing to do with exercise.

Dack isn't looking for love, and doesn't waste time on vanilla, even in bombshell blonde. Until he hears Daisy's been asking questions about his private sex club. He'll be happy to show her the ropes...on his terms.

Daisy asks Dack for a date, and gets an offer she can't refuse. The chance to explore some of her most private fantasies and move beyond her fears about her body.

As Dack leads Daisy by the thong into the Dom/sub world, she's finally in her element...until Dack issues a command that brings her up against her last emotional barrier. And Dack must decide how far he'll go to bring his bombshell back into his arms.

Product Warnings
Body builders showing off their physiques, blondes looking to have more fun, and members of a private club sharing more than conversation.

Read an excerpt, find reviews and more at Samhain!

Let's peek ...
' “Are we done now?” Daisy demanded, scowling at him over her shoulder.
Dack smiled down at her, his good humor restored. Damn, she was cute. “Nope. It’s my turn, petal.”
She glowered at him. “What do you mean, it’s your turn? I chose you, didn’t I? And what is that name you keep calling me?”
“Petal. Your hair reminds me of flower petals, especially when it’s ruffled like it is now.”

She blinked. “Oh.” Good, he’d distracted her with the pet name. He liked it better when a sub was off-balance emotionally, especially this one. She needed to rely on him here, not her own decisions.
He let her watch his smile disappear.
“And now it’s my turn to spank this pretty ass,” he told her. “For not obeying me when I told you to take your top off, and for not choosing me first tonight.”
He smacked her ass, taking care to stay away from the bright pink spot across her left cheek where Kevin, that asshole, had hurt her. What Dack planned would sting, but he’d let some sadist tie him up and whip him before he’d hurt his little sub.'

Leave a comment, let me know what you think! I'll give away a FREE copy of the book to 1 commenter.

Celebrating Hot Paranormal Nights ... in Paradise

Hot is good, yes?
Hot paranormal is even betta! Those guys with powers, you know ... whooo-wee!

 My latest series, Hawaiian Heroes, features the Ho'omalu brothers.

David Ho'omalu is the hero of a woman's dreams. Big, powerful, handsome and gentle ... with something extra.

Born to defend his people, he will sacrifice everything—for her.

Nawea Bay, a remote Hawaiian paradise, is just the haven Melia Carson needs to escape the chill of heartache. Instead, she finds herself swept up in a tropical heat wave, fueled by her unexpected attraction to a handsome native she meets on a snorkel tour. He’s big, powerful, hot enough to melt her defenses—and he’s not all he seems. How else could he survive an injury that should have killed him…and why does she dream of him garbed in ancient native dress and wreathed in flames? David “Malu” Ho’omalu is on the Big Island to find and destroy a cache of dangerous designer drugs before they can be sold to his people. Fending off amorous female tourists is part of the job, but one look in Melia’s blue eyes, and his instincts scream that she is his. As Melia surrenders to the desire burning between them, she discovers more than a fiery heritage that defies modern logic. She discovers a man who would descend into the molten heart of the volcano to protect his island. And her…if she can find the strength to trust her heart to him.

 Warning: Hot, hot Hawaiian hero with volcanic passion on his mind. Better pack a heat-proof bikini for this island paradise.

Here's one of my favorite scenes, where David kinda lets it off the leash ... a little too soon.

"Melia woke with a gasp. She lay on her back in the bed, her heart pounding, desire twisting inside her. The dream had been so real.
Rain beat on the roof overhead, trickled down the gutters and splattered on the windowsills. But only on one side was she cool. Her other side was hot, uncomfortably so, as if she were too near a fire. And the heat was emanating from the man sleeping at her side.
Melia turned her head and stared. Her breath froze in her throat; her heart skipped a beat and then began to pound even faster. Was she still dreaming?
Malu still lay on his side, facing her. His eyes were closed, his face peaceful in slumber, his big body relaxed. And she could see all this clearly, because he was glowing.
She closed her eyes, squeezing them tightly shut, willing it to be her imagination, a trick of the storm, of the Hawaiian night. But when she opened them again, it was the same. The night was dark, the rain blotting out any moonlight that might have strayed in the windows. The only light was the red-gold glow that shimmered not around, not over, but from Malu.
Slowly, clumsy with fear, Melia pushed back the blanket and began to inch away from him. She made it to the very edge of the bed, had one foot on the floor, when his eyes opened, and he looked at her. It was like gazing into the heart of dark fire.
“Damn,” he rumbled, his deep voice husky with sleep. “Didn’t mean to do that yet.”

Leave a comment and  let me know how you'd like a guy to heat up your nights with some paranormal powers, and I'll enter you to win a PRINT copy of Walking in Fire, or an ebook of any of the Hawaiian Heroes books--your choice. (print winners must live within the continental U.S.)

Going 'Out of This World' to meet Sci Fi Romance Characters

I write sci fi futuristic romance.

 That means my characters ALWAYS get to go out of this world, the world in which you and I live. For me, that's just plain fun!

Love me some aliens. And by that I don't necessarily mean green dudes with tentacles hanging off their foreheads ... although come to think of it I do have a character, Dr. Tentaclar (sorry, could not resist the joke) whose eyes are on stalks. And there are several. Pretty useful for keeping one eye on the patient's stats while operating.

But most of my characters are much closer to human, at least in appearance. My Serpentians are gorgeous, golden-skinned creatures with lightning quick reflexes, high resistance to heat and pain, and huge libidos, especially the royal houses of the Dragolins.

Indigons are the Spocks of their futuristic world. Able to read minds, influence them, and keep their emotions out of the equation ... most of the time. You know in a romance I'm gonna mess with the poor blue-eyed intellectuals. Make them fall in love and lust.

Pangaeans are the peacemakers, the sensitive vegans of the galaxy. They garden, work as interpreters and chefs, and their skin has a green cast from all the chlorophyll they ingest. But, let one of them go wrong, and they can be fanatical.

Aquarians are from a planet with many seas, full of mysterious creatures of the deep. Aquarians can spend long periods underwater, are pale and beautiful, and very arrogant. Then there are the Lower Aquarians ... not as bright, and best left in their sea homes, as they tend to leave slime trails everywhere on dry land. Yeah, enough said.

OMG, almost forgot the Tygeans, or Tygers. Grrrrroowl, girlfriend. Everyone should have one of these beautiful, ferocious shifters at her beck and call. Especially when they're under the influence of their mating moons. A big, furry man cat? Come to mama, big boy.

Of course, these races inter-breed with humans, and this can cause some heartache, as these beings struggle to reconcile their human side with their alien blood ... and to exist in whichever world they find themselves.

Makes for some great, angsty, sexy romance, though! You thought it was cold in space? No way!

To meet some of the beings in my Cade-iverse, try my FREE READ, Heart of Stone, and join me in my new book, Stark Pleasure; the Space Magnates' Bride.

To win the book, and all these other great prizes, leave a comment, and we'll enter you to win. And don't forget to visit these other blogs, too!

Just self-published a new book, Stark Pleasure; the Space Magnate's Mistress. Today I received this very good question from a reader:

Hi Cathryn, 

I was visiting your Facebook page and read your post that the romance continues in the next two books of the series. 

Does this mean Kiri and Logan do not conclude in the first book Stark Pleasure?  But the second book is about Taara and Creed?  

I'm just wondering as it can be difficult to wait for a couple's HEA if their complete story is not yet available to read!  The Lodestar series sounds very appealing so I would rather start reading as soon as possible :). 

Thanks, Allison 


Thanks so much for asking! If you're wondering, I'm sure other readers are as well.

Here's how the LodeStar series will play out.

For the first time, I am indeed carrying one couple's love story through an entire series, while providing HEAs for other characters in the series. I did not want to leave readers hanging with Logan and Kiri's romance at the end of Book 1,  it's just that there is so much sensual romance & adventure that I had to end the book somewhere!

Stark Pleasure; the Space Magnate's Mistress
Can she survive the perils of the galaxy on her wits … or will she have to use her body?

This is Kiri te Nawa and Logan Stark's story. They come together in a very hot relationship, both grow a lot in character, go through some tough times, come back together in the end of the book, but this is not the end of their story.

Logan Stark is a complex character, and a man who has come up the hard way, become a success in his world. He thus thinks he should not only be in control of his world, but the people whom he loves. He manipulates them like chess pieces, all in their best interests, of course. This will get him in lots of trouble with them!

Book II, Creed of Pleasure; the Space Miner's Concubine
Her mother's people are renowned for courage & sensuality, but can her human side go along when she must seduce a man to survive?

With Kiri at his side, on the newly settled
planet of Frontiera, Logan will attempt to give his youngest brother, Creed what Logan does not think he deserves for himself,  a home & family -- by blackmailing one of Kiri's friends into seducing Creed! Creed DOES get his happy ever after at the end of Book II. You can read more about it here, @ > Books > The LodeStar Series.

Book III, Captive of Pleasure, the Space Pirate's Woman. 
With no memory of who she was, can she become the woman who'll captivate a pirate, body and soul?

Logan decides that it's time for his brother Joran, leader of a band of space vigilantes in the wilds of Frontiera, to take a bride. But when Logan steers Joran to the rescue of an heiress kidnapped by slavers and up for sale at a fly-by-night auction site on Frontiera. More adventures, ending happily for Joran and his new love. More trouble for Logan Stark--stubborn man that he is.

Book IV, Stark's Honor, the Space Magnate's Bride ... well, with a title like that, need I say more? Emoji She'll walk away from the only man she's ever loved ... to show him what he has to lose.

Kiri is so angry at Logan Stark that she leaves him to homestead her own claim on Frontiera -- smack dab in the middle of the territory of particularly nasty space pirates and inter-galactic slavers. Stark, of course, comes after her. He'll need his brothers' and the Intergalactic Space Forces, as well the crew commanders of his space ship Orion to rout the baddies. Then, HEA to the max!

Look for characters from my Orion Series, and from my Free Reads returning to take part in the adventure.

So that's the series in a quick look. Hope you'll find it worth your while.

You can also sign up for my newsletter to know when the next book debuts, as well as get exclusive excerpts.

Title: Burning Up the Rain
Author: Cathryn Cade
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
On sale date: May 7, 2013
ISBN: 9781619216020
Series: Hawaiian Heroes, Book 4
Her powers could save her island…or bring their love crashing down.

Despite her successful career, Lalei Kai-Ho’omalu has always considered herself mere decoration in a dynamic Hawaiian family, with none of their powerful gifts. Destined for life in the background as a useless, upper-crust wife.

Desperate to escape her mother’s latest matchmaking attempt, Lalei acts on her sizzling attraction to a guest at her cousin’s island wedding, making him a bold offer he can’t refuse.

A no-strings, no-holds-barred affair on Nawea Bay with the sexy Hawaiian beauty is just the break California Realtor Jack Nord needs from his fast-paced career—and an inner darkness he’d like to forget. Just for a while.

Their very public liaison is the shocking declaration of independence Lalei intended—with unintended consequences. Stirred to anger by developers set on carving her family’s unspoiled ancestral lands into a resort, Lalei discovers she has the supernatural power to stop them.

But when Jack learns his lover can bring down the rain and throw bolts of lightning, whose side will he take? The money-making machine? Or the woman born to protect her island home?

Warning: A wahine whose real estate may be too hot to handle, and a Realtor who’s determined to seal the deal.

Title: Lord of the Forest

England, 1217. Dark forces are rising. In the Greenwood, foul spirits grow powerful, and greedy barons plunder the lands. Only one man dares fight back--Robin Hood.

Despite a sizzling attraction, Robin senses Cal isn't like his old comrades, and he's right. Cal's been raised as a royal spy. He plans to seduce and betray Robin, but can't harm the man he's falling hard for. Mistrust and arguments spill into passionate lovemaking, as Cal learns the meaning of loyalty, fighting beside Robin, the only friend he's ever known. Even the enchanted forest seeks to bind Robin and the returned protector ever tighter.

Their connection will be tested by nature's wildest forces, Robin's past, Cal's lies, and in a baron's darkest dungeon. To survive, Robin and Cal must admit their love and embrace their true destinies. Only then can they save England and each other--and win their happiness ever after.

Series: Promise Harbor Wedding series, book 4
And she thought the bridesmaids dresses were her biggest problem...

Allison Ralston would rather be anywhere other than this wedding. Even if
the wedding is hers. Especially since the wedding is hers.

But Allie’s determined to restore her family’s happiness, and if tying the knot with longtime family friend Josh Brewster is the way to do it, then she’ll walk down that aisle, toss that bouquet and drink that champagne. Oh, she’ll definitely drink the champagne.

There’s only one thing that could get Gavin Montgomery back to Promise Harbor. And she’s about to say I do to another man. Now he’s back to claim what’s his—even if he has to do it in the middle of her wedding.

Allie is shocked—and okay, a little turned on—when Gavin literally sweeps her off her feet. Safe in his arms, she succumbs to fatigue, stress, and yes, the champagne, only to wake up in his bed. In Alaska.

Now that he’s put four thousand miles between Allie and all her responsibilities, Gavin’s determined to show her that they can make a life together. If he has his way, the next wedding Allie will be planning will be theirs.

Warning. Contains a guy so in love he’s willing to break up the wedding of the season, a bride who just needs to get to, well, anywhere else, and enough hot sex to take them from New England to Alaska and back again.

Newly single Matt is captivated by the vibrant Whitney, in every way the opposite of his cheating ex-wife. When he confesses to Whitney that he hasn't had sex since his divorce, she volunteers to be his rebound girl. But Matt's not a no-commitment kind of guy--he's either all in, or all out.
Whitney is determined to remain attachment-free, but Matt is equally determined to prove to her that what they have is more than just a rebound fling.

Only blood can break your heart.

New Year’s Eve, 1999. The world is braced for Y2K, but that’s not the only ticking time bomb in Conrad’s life. Damian wouldn’t be the first vampire to find a way to die, but Conrad is determined he will not be one of them.

Present day. Damian struggles to trust that fate could possibly be kind enough to give him a love as perfect as Conrad’s. Conrad balances on the keen edge of his own fear that one more slip of his formidable control could drive his lover away—permanently.

Julie learns the hard way it’s not just interspecies relationships that seldom work out. Even between vampires, love is not a smooth course.

Meanwhile, intrigue and conflict within the nest continue to grow, fueled in no small part by Georgia’s slipping hold on a deadly secret. Marc works to consolidate his position as leader of the ferals—and discovers that being a walking anomaly has certain advantages. Including some that are totally unexpected.

Warning: Contains more love triangles, more power struggles, more tears and teeth gnashing, and even more graphic scenes of manlove between moody, domestically inclined vampires than in previous editions. Definitely not recommended for anyone suffering from ALSSD (Auld Lang Syne Sensitivity Disorder) or with aversions to ballrooms, evening clothes, sarcasm, or close-quarter stiletto combat.

Desperate, Genevieve "Gennie" Caine has no choice but to seduce, drug and tie Natalia to the bed to get her attention. With the Reyes Corporation after something she has, Gennie needs Natalia to open an investigation and distract them long enough for her to get off Nevarro.

Natalia doesn't trust Gennie—despite the growing attraction between them—but the corporation's suspiciously high profits and abnormal business dealings convince her that they must be hiding something. She has no idea just how deep the deceptions run…

Desires she can't deny even after she discovers Nate's no stranger to her dark past.
Before he can convince her the attraction is mutual, Nate's going to have to earn Ella's trust. But a demon is playing for keeps in the world of humans, using Ella as bait, and the last thing they have is time.

Title: She’s the One
Author: Erin Nicholas
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
On sale date: June, 11, 2013
ISBN: 978-1-61921-747-8
Series: Counting on Love series, book 1

Sometimes you see love clearly. And sometimes it has to smack you in the face.

When a stranger walks up and punches him, Ryan Kaye assumes there’s a good reason. But, he’s surprised to learn it’s over a night that never happened. With his friend’s sister. A one night stand isn’t straight-laced Amanda’s style, so she’s got some explaining to do.

Amanda Dixon knows all about the emotional ups and downs of loving someone while simultaneously wanting to strangle them—she’s got three beautiful, spirited younger sisters. Until they’re settled down, she’s not looking to add anyone her list of commitments. Not even a really nice guy who thinks she hung the moon. Trying to let him down easy, she tells him she’s fallen head over heels for another man—hot paramedic, Ryan Kaye.

As a general rule, Ryan stays far away from anything complicated. But he definitely wants to know what’s going on with Amanda. When Ryan confronts her about the lie, she apologizes, but Ryan realizes he doesn’t want her to be sorry. He wants the night they supposedly spent together. Amanda is shocked—and excited—by Ryan’s proposition. One night to go crazy and have some fun? She can certainly think of worse ideas… like falling in love with him.

Warning: Contains a hot paramedic who knows how to get a girl to let her hair down, a girl who thinks she prefers her hair up, some naughty laser tag, some naughty role-playing and a lot of falling in love.

Publisher: Cathryn Cade

That Much Closer to ... Gettin' Lucky

Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
Addendum: I think that's supposed to happen at the end of a post, but what the hey! I can do it anywhere I want, it's my blog.

Only 2 1/2 weeks away from the Last Move! 

Right now DH and I are on Maui, having a fabulous vacation on the in-laws. (Thanks, love you guys!) When we get home, it's pack up the last of our things, and hit the road. 

So, pretty much I'm posting this picture 
because ... 

I didn't have any pictures of those cute shamrocks, and it makes me feel pretty darn lucky just looking at this! 

The DH and I get to move back to North Idaho in May. Wahoo!

If you've never been to Coeur d'Alene, it's one of the cutest little resort towns on the lake you'll ever visit. We were lucky enough to live there several years ago, but my husband's job moved us to Portland area. 

That turned out to be great. I would never want to miss living that near the ocean, and so  many art museums, galleries, theaters, etc. And did I mention the shopping? Hello, Nordstroms!

But after a short detour to my home state of Montana, which didn't work out for family reasons, we're headed back to our favorite place to Stay. Put. For. Good.

So, y'know, look for me in the area. If you drive through on the interstate or stop down by the lake, wave! I'll be the one in the boat, short blonde hair flying in the breeze, big smile on my face.

And I like to think this move is lucky for readers too, as I'll be continuing to write full time. 
Book 1 of The LodeStar Series (erotic sci fi romance) is set to debut soon, 
I'm writing Book 2 of a light BDsm series for Samhain, 
and I'm planning a fun, hot (did I mention FUN?) series set in Coeur d'Alene.

Break My Heart ... and I'll Love You

 Or at least I'll love your story!

Emotion, lots of emotion. That's what makes a great romance. The highs aren't that high unless the lows take us way down in the depths of despair.

Have you ever had your heart broken? 

Of course you have. But before that happened, you soared. The endorphins flowed through your bloodstream, and you floated several inches off the ground. Ah, love. 

Then that perfect someone decided you weren't perfect. Or you realized he wasn't perfect. Or you found him kissing your sorority sister ... the dirty dog. Something happened that burst your perfect pink bubble. (Or maybe you married him, and you're still smiling. I hope so.)

When we read romance, we want to experience the highs. But to do that, we have go way down low, along with the heroine and hero. 

I love to write heart breakers. If I don't cry as I write, I know you won't have that delicious roller-coaster ride either. And that's just fun!

 Meet Stone Masterson. One of the wickedest space pirates in the galaxy. Well ... make that ex-pirate. He's now a wealthy businessman, intent on making his new home safe ... for all the other folks who want to make families there.

For himself, he has no such plans. Doesn't believe he deserves that kind of love. He's convinced he has a Heart of Stone.

Rose Thorne blasts into his life, and demands that he help her find her brother. Somehow she ends up in his bed, and that's when the heartbreak begins.

Will Rose convince this proud, lonely man he's worthy of love ... her love? Or will he always be a heart-breaker?

Ever Have one of Those Days?

Ever have one of those days?
When you  have the glorious plan, and then it just starts going to hell heading south?

Me, too. Here is one of my favorite red hot sci fi romances, Heart of Stone. It was originally posted as a Free Read on Samhain Publishing's old 'Samhellion' site.

That site is gone, so I took my story down, completely re-wrote it (30K instead of 15K)--with even more red hots, had it professionally edited at RedCircleInk, formatted it for e-book and had this gorgeous cover created by Gilded Heart Designs.

I wrote the story as a Free Read, so I wanted to post it everywhere on the web as a Free Read.

Helllooooo, Amazon. Indie authors are not allowed to set a price to free. And if the book is posted for their lowest price, .99, and posted free elsewhere, Amazon will not be happy.

So here's the deal. I'd really love lots of readers to find this story. For the next 90 days, Heart of Stone will be available on Amazon for .99. For 5 of those days, it will be an Amazon Free Read. I'll keep you posted on when that will happen.

At the end of that time, come more hell or high water, the story will be available Free for the rest of its eternal life. Even if it's not available ... you know where.

Hope you're having a fabulous week! I'm going back to my imaginary world, where I'm in control.

Put Your Promise in a Time Capsule

Hello all –

This is a fun post suggested by Kate Evangelista and I thought I would do a post of my own. Please leave me a comment!

Make yourself a post so your friends can leave you a message in the comments section with their thoughts about you, their wishes for you for next year, etcetera. In the post itself, leave a message for yourself... anything you can look back on next year and reminisce about. On January 10th, 2013, edit the post to Saved As Draft. In December of 2013, re-publish the post so you can look through your old comments from the year before and see the difference a year makes. On the post, you must add the HTML of the original meme from Dreamwidth (must give credit where credit is due).

Here's my message:
Warning: Red Hot Romance
Author - keep one of these

Hi, Cathryn

What a year 2012 has been. You finally took the big leap from teaching and writing to full-time romance author! Little did you know how exciting it would be or how much your writing would grow. 

You knew you wanted to write full time, but you had no idea how hard you would work to balance creating, business and promotion.

You're scared that you'll lose your way in this new world, but no matter what, you know you'd never miss this journey.

Since you moved home to Montana this summer, you've missed your Rose City Romance Writers in Portland, altho you stay in touch online. You met the energetic, talented Montana Romance Writers, and even attended the mini-con at Fairmont Hot Springs in September. 

You went to Emerald City Con in Seattle, to learn about self-publishing and promotion. You had fun networking with your friends, but you resolve to be more organized next year, and make appointments with the writers whom you want to connect at a con.

You've just finished your 4th Hawaiian Heroes book. Burning up the Rain may just be the best of the series, and you were sad to say Aloha to Nawea Bay, especially as you know a real visit to Hawaii probably isn't in the cards this year. But you also know the Ho'omalus, their powers, and their aloha spirit will always be part of you.

This fall, you stretched yourself! You took Carol Hughes' fabulous Deep Story class, and you know the pacing Hollywood screenwriters use to create blockbusters will revolutionize your writing. You've already plugged it in to the WriteWayPro program and used it to deepen your WIP and to plan and plot 2 new series for 2013! Your writing is so much faster and more on track now.

You've finished re-writing your Free Read Heart of Stone with RedCircleInk EditingGilded Heart Design created a gorgeous new cover, and you're so excited to self-publish this novella and Heart of Steel that you can hardly sit still. 

You're hoping planning that 2013 will be your best year yet as an author. You plan to finish 6 books, let even more readers know about your writing, and take advantage of the new opportunities for romance writers that are popping up every day--audio books, international distribution, and book trailers.

You're excited, but nervous. Can you write 2 different series simultaneously? In 2 different romance genres? You believe you can, because altho Club 3 is contemporary and The LodeStar Series is sci fi, they are both erotic romance, with the Cathryn Cade stamp of red hot romance with some adventure, danger and laughter in the mix. 

You're also the new Night Owl Reviews Magazine Romance Zone columnist. You're having a ball writing the column, and hearing back from romance readers.

I can't wait to hear from you at the end of 2013. What have you accomplished? Did you meet your goals or surpass them? What do you dream and plan for 2014?.
