Lady Patience’s Christmas Kitten by Ava Stone
Synopsis: 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?
Review: A cute and innocent romance about Lady Patience who wants to protect her kitten from being thrown outside who is accidently bitten by her kitten. Dr. Campion is called in the check on her bite. The moment they meet sparks fly. Dr. Campion comes to her rescue when her mom insists she gets rid of the kitten and says he will take her kitten home with him. The next day he comes back to check on his patient and Patience’s sister helps with an excuse for them to spend more time together by going to Dr. Campion’s home to see her kitten. While spending time together they kiss, she aids him in helping a little boy with a broken leg, and they decide they want to get married (less than 24 hours after meeting each other). Of course, there are obstacles they have to overcome and he ends up defying the Duke of Danby’s edict that he is not welcome at the Christmas Ball. Well, he won’t have it and shows up to find Patience. They have a happily ever after and that is the story in a nutshell. Super short story and a sweet read. This book, and Lady, It’s Cold Outside, would be a good story for young teens who want an introduction to romance.
