For the past two hundred years, Catherine Wyndham has lived a double life.  During the day she is a beautiful blonde-haired woman, and when the sun goes down, Catherine turns into a sleek, purring cat.  Now, she only has a few days left to break the curse an evil witch put on her.  A man must love her in both her human and feline forms.  But, after two centuries, Catherine has little hope of that.  Right now, all she wants is to rescue a trio of kittens that she spotted recently.  Catherine is almost to the spot where she last saw the kittens when a handsome veterinarian scoops her up.

Garrett McAllister can’t resist helping stray animals.  He takes the cat back to his office, cuddles her, and places her in a cage until he can find a home for her.  Garrett feels some kind of connection to this stray with the beautiful gray-green eyes.  But, he can’t take any more animals home, because he already has three.  When Garrett arrives back at the office in the morning before sunrise, he notices his new stray is very anxious to get out.  When he opens the cage, she runs past him.

Catherine only has a few minutes before her furry body changes back into human form.  When Garrett walks into the outer office he finds a naked woman wearing his lab coat instead of the cat.  Catherine makes up some crazy story about being there for a job, and Garret doesn’t believe her, but he agrees to let her assist him with one patient.  He can’t seem to resist the beautiful woman with the familiar eyes.  But, what secrets is she hiding?

Garrett harbors his own secrets and scars, both emotional and physical.  He is distant and abrupt towards most people, but Catherine makes him want to learn to love and live again.  Catherine has lived a long and troubled life, but she is still a wonderful and generous woman.  She works for Garrett during the day, but there are several times when she has to leave him quickly before the change occurs.  As they get to know each other, the attraction quickly grows.  Could the handsome vet ever believe Catherine’s story and learn to love both parts of her?  Or, is she doomed to turn into a cat permanently in just a few short days?

KISSED BY CAT is a spectacular adventure filled with magic and romance that will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy.  It took me just a few short hours to finish this brilliantly written love story, but I hated to see it come to an end.  Shirley Jump has this awesome ability to create a world that will immediately draw you in and make you never want to leave.  I fell in love with both of these characters who have been dealt horrendous tragedies, yet they still had such love and kindness in their hearts.  It was a breathtaking romance, and I would recommend it to any romance lover.  Shirley Jump is definitely at the top of my list for favorite authors, and I definitely suggest sampling her talent in KISSED BY CAT.  After you finish, you just might be adding her to your own favorite list!
