If you have found your way here, you are looking for more, more, more.  More books, more romance and maybe even just a little more information about me and my passion for writing romance novels.

About Cat

Cat Gardiner loves to take you around the world in her novels, places you may never have been with music that maybe you’ve never heard. A member of National League of American Pen Women, Romance Writers of America, and her local chapter TARA, she enjoys writing across the spectrum of Pride and Prejudice inspired romance novels. From the comedic Christmas, Chick Lit Lucky 13 to bad boy biker Darcy in the romantic adventure Denial of Conscience, these contemporary novels will appeal to many Mr. Darcy lovers.

“I love an adventure! So my storytelling uses fresh innovation to bring the reader on a multi-tiered journey. Incorporating technology with visuals and music, the reader becomes immersed with Spotify playlists, blogs, and inspirational image Pinterest boards. Books should be an escape to a time, place, or world where you can lose yourself.”

Villa Fortuna - Releasing Dec. 1st 2015
Inspired by Jane Austen's most beloved P&P characters. Discover the romance and comedy of Villa Fortuna where Little Italy collides with the country club set … at a hair salon.

Dr. Elizabeth Fairchild lived an orderly and focused life in Los Angeles until …

an unexpected death, a questionable inheritance, and an eighty-year-old Mafia vendetta required a trip home to New York City's Little Italy neighborhood in the Bronx. After thirteen years of running from her Italian-American upbringing, Elizabeth dreaded returning to the ethnic world of colorful hand gestures, passionate arguments, and living with her two stereotypical sisters in their rundown apartment above a bakery.

Her plan: get in, take care of business, celebrate Christmas, and then escape as quickly as possible. However, returning to the Bronx assailed the senses like her mother's lasagna. She didn't count on Italian pastry, homemade wine, a beauty parlor, and the enticement of a dashing plastic surgeon known as Michelangelo.

Will Elizabeth flee her childhood home where the foundation of faith and familia is so strong? Or will she stay and embrace all the traditions that once embarrassed her? Should she succumb or resist her elder sister's admonishment,

“Your home is where your heart is, and we are your heart—marinara, cannolis, the Church, and the family! The whole shebang!"
