Take one scientific swain, one dashing lieutenant, one no-nonsense librarian, one adventurous young lady, one very large tomcat, and two mischievous kittens...and what do you have? Two recipes for disaster! Or perhaps for love...

Kisses and Catnip, by Grace Burrowes

Max Haddonfield is a man of science, devoted to logic and rational observation. That he also finds homes in libraries for stray cats is merely a sensible exercise in controlling the mouse population...or something.

Antonia Mainwaring is practical to a fault and all but on the shelf. When a certain soft-spoken library patron talks her into allowing a large male feline to bide on the premises, somebody starts purring–and it's not the cat!

Lieutenant Mayhew's Catastrophes, by Emily Larkin

When Lieutenant Mayhew boards the stagecoach bound for Southampton he anticipates an uneventful journey. True, he's carrying kittens, but it's only eighty miles. What could possibly go wrong?

He's not expecting to meet the enchanting Miss Willemina Culpepper. Nor is he expecting the kittens to be quite so good at vanishing. Mayhew has faced many challenges in his career as a soldier. Traveling from London to Southampton should not be a challenge. Except that it is.

I am a big fan of Emily Larkin's books and while this one wasn't my absolute favourite, it was still a very enjoyable story. It kind of reminds me when you are having one of those days, and you wonder what else can go wrong? But this one has kittens, and a wonderful kind stranger...who of course turns out to not be a stranger for long. I hadn't read any of Grace Burrowes novels before but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Once again it includes felines, and while I am a cat lover I don't think you need to be to enjoy this novel with a bit of a difference. I enjoyed both books and I recommend them to anyone who loves historical romances or loves cats.

the first story is very predictable. nothing interesting in the dialogue. grace's story is entertaining but not as good as some of her other works, i liked the cats in both stories. usually i read my nook stories again but these i wouldn't.

Love the Haddonfield family and the connections to Grace Burrowes' other stories.
