Roxy Williams adores cats. Always has. That's why she devotes her life to running her stray cat shelter. But is that enough? Isn't there a man out there who will love her for who she is? A special man who won't try to change her or ask her to choose between him and her cats?

Max Weller has a problem. His son, Derek, must complete community service for fighting at school. The only available place is the stray cat shelter. But Derek is terrified of cats from a frightening childhood experience. How will they get through this traumatic experience?

Roxy and Max feel the strong attraction pulling them together as Max volunteers at the shelter, too. Will they be able to keep the spark alive? Or will Derek's fears come between them?

A very sweet romantic read, perfect for cat-lovers everywhere. Roxy is a sympathetic heroine, and Hartman keeps the pace moving in the book. The cats make great minor characters, too!

This is such a wonderful book..Highly recommend it to all cat lover's..Roxy runs a cat shelter and finds romance with a volunteer..His young son is serving community service there and is afraid of cats(there's a story around that)..Roxy is kind of klutzy and had me laughing out loud with some of her antics..Just a fun,easy read..

If you love cats, you'll love this story. The main character, Roxy, owns a cat shelter. She meets a single parent (Max) whose son (Derek) must fulfill community service work at the shelter. Unfortunately the boy had a bad experience with a cat in his childhood and they terrify him. Although Max, Roxy and Derek become close, Derek's phobia stands in the way of them pulling together as a family. Since I love felines, I really enjoyed hearing about the different kinds of cats that end up in the shelter. As a cat owner, I could relate to all the work involved in taking care of cats. I particularly enjoyed the lengths that Roxy would go to show the cats a good time. I wanted to take several of the kitties home, or at least stroke their beautiful fur. As I read, I kept rooting for Derek to make a breakthrough in his phobia. I also wanted Roxy and Max to end up together. Does the tale end purrfectly, or is there a catastrophe in the making? I'm not saying, but "Better Than Catnip" did make my tail wag.
