Cathy Maxwell is one of the many authors that I’ve stumbled upon when I was looking for new books to add to my ever rising collection of books when I was at Barnes & Noble. Cathy Maxwell writes historical romances that are very good in my opinion. I have almost all of her books that she’s ever written and I love getting new books that she has out because they are always enjoyable. This is Cathy Maxwell’s first novel that she wrote and got published. I absolutely loved it because it had everything a good historical novel should have. It had a strong heroine who could fight her own battles but has her weaknesses like anyone else. I also loved the handsome and emotionally scarred hero who couldn’t totally ignore the lovely yet very stubborn and pushy heroine. I have to say that this has become one of my favorites of Maxwell’s and I’m glad that since she wrote this novel she has only gotten better. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL $ 6.99 (375 Pages)
Lady Julia Markham was the toast of London Society—until an ill-advised attempted elopement ended in betrayal and left her good name in tatters. Now ruined, penniless, and desperate, she has agreed to wed the magnetic and possibly dangerous Brader Wolf. A dashing, phenomenally successful self-made businessman, Brader wants this union to help gain him entry into the drawing rooms of the aristocracy, nothing more. Julia, however, is a woman of rare passion and daring, irresistibly drawn to this enigmatic, infuriating man, and no mere marriage of mutual convenience will do. But how far will the spirited beauty have to go to satisfy a heart that will settle for no less than the love a lifetime?
