* Previously found in The Duke’s Christmas Greetings
Lady Patience Post is about to lose the one thing she really wants for Christmas – the sweetest kitten in all the world. But unless she can figure out a way to save the little ball of fluff, her brother will toss the cat unceremoniously out into the snow. Luckily, a summons from the Duke of Danby arrives at the perfect time for a feline reprieve. Now if only the little Angora can behave himself in Yorkshire over the holidays so she can devise the perfect plan to keep him…
Doctor Matthew Campion was not part of the plan. But after he treats Patience for an infected kitten bite, she can’t help falling completely in love with the handsome and thoughtful doctor. But will her family and the duke approve?
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
First of all, you have to love the Post family. I normally am not a fan of novellas because of how fast they are, but this one was done very well. I was laughing at everything Ashes the kitten did because he is exactly like a kitten should be. He causes havoc but is so cute and lovable that you can’t get mad.
I fell in love with Doctor Matthew Campion for the first scene with him and of course his last name. Who doesn’t love a man that will take a kitten in if needed?
Lady Patience is different from both her sisters, but also a mix of them. She is a bit outspoken like one but open to love like the other. I loved that she was so willing to help someone when needed and didn’t really flinch at anything.
There is humor and twists in this as there always is when the post family is involved. The Duke is an interesting man and nothing that you would expect. He scares people, but also surprises them. Their mother is a mystery herself and you just want to know more about her.
