Hi, I'm Cathryn Cade. I write red hot romance for Samhain and myself (self-pub). I'm here to tell you, I'm doing my part to make May 'One Hot Little Month'.
We flew from Montana, then Seattle. When you sit in a waiting area and then on a 6 hour flight, you remember some people. You see them around the island in restaurants and at the beaches. We even ended up in the same condo as some nice folks from Spokane, Washington.
But, the poor woman was injured when trying to right a big wooden paddling canoe on the beach. She passed the last few days in Maui in a wheelchair! She'll be okay after some physical therapy, nothing torn or broken, but she did not enjoy the end of her vacation.
Back in the Maui airport to fly home, we recognized another man from our plane, now wearing a cast on one arm. He'd slipped on the rocks in a popular snorkeling bay. Yet another man was on crutches—stepped off a curb in Lahaina, a popular shopping area, and sprained his ankle.
Wow, who knew the tropics were so dangerous? I feel lucky to have come home in one piece, especially as I'm a klutz. Now, that's reality.
The heroine and hero of Burning up the Rain, debuting today at Samhain, face dangers in paradise, but of an entirely different kind. 'Cause who wants to read about falling off a curb?
The land has been in the family for hundreds of years, and is protected not only by the laws of Hawaii, but the power of Pele, goddess of Hawaiian volcanoes. Pele has tasked the Ho'omalu family with protecting her islands while she sleeps, and gifted them with powers to call upon her island to help.
'Aue! Wow! Now, wouldn't you rather face that kind of exciting danger than slipping on rocks, or a curb? Nah, probably best to leave the drug smugglers between the pages.Burning Up the Rain by Cathryn Cade
Book #4 in the Hawaiian Heroes series
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.
But have you ever had a vacation turn to disaster because you or a companion was injured? Or maybe you lost your luggage or got stuck in an airport. Vacations can be awesome, or really stressful.
