"The Guardians’ Golden Hall was the one place in England where I could be entirely safe from thoughts of matchmaking, gowns, and being shoved at eligible young men like a side of beef for their appraisal.
At least, that was what I thought..."
Ever since the third Kat book first came out in the UK, I've been getting emails from readers who wanted to know: who was Kat going to end up with herself, after all the matchmaking she did for her older siblings? Well, now you can finally find out...because "Courting Magic", a Kat novella set five years after the events of Stolen Magic/A Reckless Magick, has just come out! It's time for Kat to finally be introduced to Society by her older sisters, whether she likes it or not...and to finally get a romance of her own!
(Needless to say, she wants her family to keep their noses out of her own romance. Needless to say, they wouldn't dream of staying out of it!)
Here's the blurb:
In Kat Stephenson's Regency England, magic is even more shocking than a stolen kiss. But now that she's eighteen, it's time for wild and magical Kat to be introduced to high society by her older sisters, whether she likes it or not...and to finally have a romance of her own! Magic, mystery, humor and romance mingle in this YA Regency novella set in the world of Kat, Incorrigible.
"Courting Magic" is available in all e-formats (including a printable PDF, in case you don't have an e-reader) on Smashwords no matter where you live. You can also buy it from all international branches of Kobo, iBooks, and Amazon (that's a universal link)! It'll be up on Barnes & Noble soon as well, but in the meantime, if you have a Nook, you can already buy an ePub copy for yourself at Smashwords.
Magic may be the greatest scandal in Regency England. But that's not going to stop twelve-year-old Kat Stephenson when there are highwaymen to foil, sinister aristocrats to defeat...and true loves to capture for her two older sisters.
