Excerpt from THE SCOTTISH WITCH by Cathy Maxwell
“I’m not Fenella.” She whispered.
He shook his head in disbelief.
“I’m not her,” she insisted. “I wish I could help you but I can’t.”
“Thecat,” he said. “The cat isyours.”
Portia shook her head.She didn’t understand his meaning.“The cat? Owl?”
As if summoned, Owl padded into the barn with a low sound of feline satisfaction in seeing them there.
Heedless of the tension between them, Owl purred and rubbed her back against his leg.
“Yes, the cat,” Colonel Chatten ground out. “I was almost fooled.I was going to leave Glenfinnan until you sent your cat to me.You wanted me to stay and so I did.Well, here I am, Fenella. What do you want to lift the curse?”
Owl now wove herself around and through their legs, brushing against Portia’s skirts and his boots, purring as she did, so, the sound growing louder.
The air about them seemed to change, to grow warmer.
He was so close to her she could see every line in his face and the color deep in his eyes. “I didn’t send a cat,” Portia whispered.
A rush of heat, of desire rose between her legs. If she leaned forward, her breasts would graze his chest and they wanted to do so.They tingled in a way she’d not experience before.
His grip on her arms tightened.His eyes had darkened.The anger turned to something she could not name.It was he who moved closer until their bodies fit together. She could feel his heat, his hardness.
She had never been this close to a man before.
Still Owl purred, the sound growing until it drowned out everything save the racing beat of her pulse.
He was handsome. Noble.A man unlike any other.
A man every woman wished to kiss.
A man who had captured her imagination in a way she’d not believed possible.
A man who brought his lips down upon hers."
I need to start my review by stating…as a fact…I am a huge Cathy Maxwell fan. There are certain authors that have me yearning to be a better writer after reading their books. New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell is one of those authors. When Maxwell places pen to paper…or…fingertips to keyboard the inevitable happens. Magic. Pure unadulterated magic is what leaps of Cathy Maxwell’s pages as she engages author with a sensational story, an engaging prose and living-breathing characters that take you on a stupendous journey.
