Overview

Kitty Lewis travels with her younger sister, Clara, to join their family for the season in Bath. Her mother is intent upon finding a husband for their elder sister, Lucinda, and believes she has found the perfect match in Captain James Northwood, a distinguished naval officer.

With time, however, Kitty begins to suspect that her sister’s affection lies elsewhere. Meanwhile, her own plan, to keep her head firmly fixed in a book and thus avoid all the nonsense going on about her, goes gradually awry.

A short romance, set in Regency England.

"A charming short story, with amusing and likeable characters, that will have you smiling the whole way through … captured the spirit of our well-loved Regency romances far better than some lengthier works," (Goodreads Review).

"I so enjoyed this light and engaging read! The characters were well developed for a short book. I felt transported to the time," (5 star review).

"Kitty is a well-written traditional regency novella. The romance is sweet. Chapman certainly knows her Pride and Prejudice: the story borrows more than a few themes from Austen's famous work, much to the amusement of the reader," (4 star review).

"A quick and delightful read. The quiet bookworm meets the handsome captain. The dialogue and characters carry a very Pride & Prejudice-esque tone," (4 star review).

"I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life," (4 star review).

Meet the Author

I write women's fiction and romance. My longer works have been described as quirky romances. I also write shorter fiction in the genre of historical romance. For tasters of my writing, the short stories, 'Opening Night,' 'The Ramblers,' 'The Family Tree,' 'The Office Party' and 'All The Trimmings,' are available to download for free from Smashwords & their retailers. Many thanks to all who have reviewed, recommended and rated my books. I really appreciate feedback from readers. 'Brizecombe Hall,' a novelette set in England in the early Victorian period, has been my most popular book to date, receiving great responses from readers who appreciate that it's intended to be an homage to the Brontes. A review of 'Kitty,' my Regency romance, written in an Austen-esque style, concluded, "Well worth your time for a light and light-hearted read. I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life." 'Three Romances,' a collection of the stories, 'Brizecombe Hall,' 'Kitty' and my WWII romance, 'The Hangar Dance,' is available digitally and in print. The novel, 'Elizabeth Clansham,' is also available in both digital and print formats. My latest contemporary novella is 'Clifton.' There are more short historical romances in the pipeline...

This is a cross of Persuasion, Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice. But far too short. I enjoyed it, wanted more and hated the mother. She was a B----. 14+. JS

I really enjoyed this short story. Kuddos to Kitty. Momma seems such a superfisial woman. I wanted the story to continue, focusing on the lives of Lucinda and Katherine and their future husbands. I look for momma to cause problems with the young couples. I am glad the girls have the support of their fathers.

Story could have been much longer. Felt choppy, rushed, and incomplete. Hard to connect with Kitty because your left guessing on her thoughts and feelings. Otherwise a cute story
