Kitty Carter has a problem. It's a four-legged one by the name of Arthur, her precocious black cat. Kitty's a writer, who has a children's series featuring said cat on his many adventures. This time, she's on a research trip to a boat dock in Alaska and finds herself chasing Arthur, who in turn has chased a mouse onto an empty yacht. Kitty, loving cat-mom that she is, follows him into the yacht, trips, bangs her head, and is out cold.

Enter Arthur Katz(whom Kitty later dubs George)--a man who is

She was just trying to catch Arthur, she never meant to fall down the steps and knock herself out…

This author must own cats herself. She understands all too well feline wiles and how they can manipulate you. Ms. Hartman also has a sense of humor. It makes her story fun to read.

Her characters are both busy people who live alone. He’s married to his work; she was jilted at the altar. When they meet in the galley of the boat after her fall, neither one is looking forward to spending two weeks tog

Review by Desere.

Imagine following your best friend onto a boat, waking up the next morning in the middle of nowhere with a complete stranger and a hot one at that! Not every woman's dream but this is exactly what happens to Kitty when she ends up on a boat with hotter than hot George ,what is a girl to do?

Author Ruth Hartman takes you on a voyage of self discovery, love and true feline friendship. She transports you to the middle of the ocean and keeps you gripped to the very end and has some

A really fun light hearted romance! It was entirely out of my normal reading and I am so glad I went out of my box. The characters were fun and I loved Arthur the cat:). He made the whole story more enjoyable. Highly recommend this quick read as it is hard to put down. Who knew you could find love and mend a mans life long fear of cats on an unexpected yacht vacation?? I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

The voyage part of this was exciting and super sweet. Once they got off the boat, though, it dragged and the resolution left too much open. But if you love cats and romances, Ruth J. Hartman is definitely the author for you!
