A charming short story, set in Regency London.
Since the moment Lord Sebastian Byefield’s pretty new neighbor moved in, he hasn’t enjoyed a single night of restful sleep. He blames her for the unearthly sounds that keep him awake at night and sour his mood during the day. But when he finally meets her one crisp autumn afternoon, she is nothing like he imagined she’d be.
Miss Amelia Merriweather, the free-thinking new resident of the townhouse next door, is rescuing her kitten from a tree when she meets Lord Byefield. She’s pleasantly surprised to find he is just as handsome and he is serious . . . and that he’s just as puzzled as she is by the source of the ghostly noises that keep her awake every night.
The only way they’ll ever solve the mystery is to join forces and search together for the cause of those sinister sounds. Of course, their search would go much smoother if Amelia’s kitten didn’t keep getting in the way. It’s almost as if the impish little kitten were possessed of a matchmaking spirit intent of bringing Sebastian and Amelia together.
