Celebrating a Return to the Scene ... of my Hawaiian Heroes


In April, my husband and I were given a surprise vacation to Maui, by my husband's folks. Thanks, love you guys! We spent 2 weeks with our toes in the sand and a cold drink in our hands--when we weren't face down in the water over a reef, that is. Snorkeling, my favorite.

Here's the view from our lanai. We walked miles barefoot
here on Sugar Beach, just north of Kihei.
We shopped, and ate lots of pulled pork at Buzz's Wharf,
our favorite marina side cafe in Ma'alea Harbor.

Spent hours wandering through the Maui Aquarium, looking at
all the exotic reef fishes, and sitting in the shark tunnel, watching
sharks and rays swim overhead. That's eerie!

Altogether, we had a very relaxing time.

And, this was a fabulous way to celebrate my latest release,
Burning up the Rain.

The Hawaiian Heroes series is set in Hawaii, so I got to raise a mai tai to my fictional Ho'omalu family and their adventures protecting the Big Island from those who would harm her.

I'll leave you with a quick peek at the cover, which I love.

Stop by my website to read reviews and more.

And here's hoping you find the time to relax, at least in the pages of a great romance.

Mahalo for stopping by,

Cathryn Cade

Maui sounds wonderful! Your book sounds even better. Love the heros and heroines who are protecting the island with their special powers. It just started raining here in Central Oregon, so warm beaches, toes in sand and a cool drink sounds fabulous! Good luck on sales.

You married into a wonderful family, Girl! I can't think of a better place to go for a relaxing, romantic vacation. That you could celebrate the release of Burning up the Rain in Hawaii is phenomenal!

I love your beautiful, sexy cover, too!

I've read the first one of this series and have the next two on my kindle. One of these days I'm going to Hawaii with or without my husband who is convinced it isn't a place he wants to go.

Cathryn, Your cover is delicious and the views from your lanai inspiring. Thanks for sharing a romantic vacation for two with us!

Hawaii is truly a character in these stories. Reading one is almost (almost!) as lovely as a Hawaii vacation :)
