On a day when I really needed a warm-hearted, cheerful break, I was delighted to find this novella by one of my favorite Regency authors. Shannon Donnelly tells the sweet story of a widow discovering real love and a rake daring to confront his demons, plus a brood of tiny kittens with the audacity to be born in his cabinet.

The fact that hardened gamester Sir Ashten Ravenhill has won the manor house and become her landlord sets up all of Emaline's defenses. She despises gambling and deeply mistrusts this man. But can anyone truly cold-hearted warm up so quickly to an adorable tumble of kittens?

I enjoyed this gem of a novella, and I hope you will too!

This novella begins with Emaline Adair Pearson going through a broken window to get inside the Adair Manor house where she used to live to find her cat who has had kittens. Emaline is a widow and now lives in the gate house with her two sons after the manor house was lost by her cousin gambling it away, and now Sir Ashten Ravenhill owns it. As Emaline calls for her cat Bea, Sir Ashten hears her and comes into the house that used to be her home. He now owns the house, having won it.

Usually I don't read romance novels or novellas, but because this one includes cats and kittens in the story, I decided to read it. The cat and her new kittens play a big part in the plot, and it's very entertaining the way the author has worked them in, especially to cat lovers like me. Emaline must return to the house day after day to care for the kittens until they are old enough for her to take back to her own home. Even Sir Ashten begins to be interested in the kittens, especially the naming of them.

Sir Ashten has made the decision to fix a few things in the house and sell it, much to Emaline's distress. She fears that her home in the gate house will be lost and she can't afford to live anywhere else. Emaline is also beginning to find Sir Ashten very attractive, and if he sells the house, then he will leave and not come back. Her two boys have a lot of fun with him, and he seems to enjoy his time with them, too. He seems attracted to Emaline, but will she want to be associated with a gambler and have her two sons around him, even if he stays?

Readers who enjoy romance novels or Regency romances should enjoy this novella.

I like stories involving pets that enrich our lives. Separation of course is always difficult. In this beautifully written story told with smoothness, the reader is exposed to the beauty of this man-pet relationship. It reminds me of the story entitled I Am Hated. This is a compelling read and one that takes a reader into the world of a unique people.

Cute, short, and a bit predictable. And a bit stereotypical. It is a good, cute, funny story but it isnt a great story, its just good when your a bit stressed at school or work and need an hour break.

Sorry but that was all I loved. It had lots of potential but was one of those books that you can read the first couple chapters skip the middle read the end and bingo you missed nothing in doing so. I kept waiting for the real meat of the story to build something special. I am an animal lover so the kittens were fun so were the kids but they did take a great majority of the story and I did want a romance afterall. It was just OK IMHO I'm glad I got it free I couldn't pay anything for it and be happy about it. I did however love the cover (I own 6 orange kitties myself)it was soooo cute. Hope you enjoy this story more than I did.

This is a really sweet, funny, charming Regency novella by Shannon Donnelly. It is somewhat short, but still well-developed and entertaining. It is a definite must for Regency lovers and cat lovers, and it reminded me of The Primrose Path by Barbara Metzger (which I also recommend) I thought Ashten was sexy charming hero. Definitely check this out!

I don't really care for cats, but I did enjoy reading this sweet love story. I was expecting this to have poor editing, while there were some errors, I was easily able to over look them. Con: ended a bit too abruptly, maybe because I was enjoying it.

This is a nice story with a tiny blush factor (kissing only). I liked that marriage before sex was talked about, and didn't sound stupid, I liked the story line too. It was too short to develop characters with a lot of depth, but there was enough to get a good feel for them. The story flowed smoothly for the most part. Overall, I'm glad I read it and recommend it to all ages looking for a sweet, short novel.

No real angst. Nothing explicit. Just a simple sweet story. A quick happy romance fix. Great for when you're feeling a bit down.
