Jo Ann Ferguson brings us “Something Old, Something Mew” and the story of Charlotte Lougmuir and Jeremy Drake, Lord Milbury. Of all the situations she ever imagined meeting Jeremy again; it wasn’t saving a runaway kitten from his horse’s path. But Milbury’s genuine concern for the creature leads Charlotte to believe that the gossip about him may not be true and that giving her heart into his care, may not be the worse thing in the world.

In “The Perfect Bride”, by Alice Holden Simon Whitten, Viscount Glynden, is accustomed to having his own way. Marriage is an obligation he can’t shirk, but he’s determined that his bride will be the ideal of womanhood; innocent, docile and obedient. Little does he know that his attraction to a lovely French songstress with a mischievous kitten will lead to a surprising revelation about young beauty, Lady Brianna Mansfield. True love may be in their future after all.

The third story in this book is by Meylynda Beth Skinner, “Up To Scratch”. With the wedding of a childhood friend, to be held at the home she inherited, Miss Emmaline Rose hopes only to attract a potential buyer for her estate. The plan is fine with Maximilian Major, the estate’s 2nd beneficiary, who also longs to travel and need the funds to do it. But a batch of troublesome cats has another idea, such as a much more permanent and far more romantic partnership between Emmaline and Max.

Three sweeter more romantic stories you have yet to read. Throw in some frisky felines and you have some great stories. Each story has wonderful character development and imagination. The romance is never overshadowed by the precious kitties, but only enhances it.

If you are a kitty lover and have always felt that cats have some kind of sixth sense about their “human’s”, then this collection of stories are just for you.
