Stolen Magic (Kat, Incorrigible)

Kat Stephenson is back for another Regency-era comedy of manners --- and magic!  
 
After risking her own life to uncover a treasonous plot and saving England again, Miss Katherine Ann Stephenson's plans are finally coming to fruition.   Her older brother Charles has finally given up carousing, her older sister Angeline is finally going to be married to Frederick Carlyle, her oldest sister Elissa is finally going to be reunited with the family at the wedding and Kat is finally going to be inducted into the King of England's Order of the Guardians, so she can learn how to control her own powers and to ultimately fulfill the Order's duty to manage magic all over the country.
 
With a multilayered plot, lovable characters, and laugh-out-loud wit, STOLEN MAGIC is a delightful conclusion to the Kat, Incorrigible trilogy that will leave readers wishing for more.
 
Unfortunately for Kat, her simple plans never seem to work out. With his reform, Charles now has the misguided idea that he must keep Kat safe and thinks he needs to watch her every move. Angeline's pernicious future mother-in-law is doing everything and anything to prevent her son's upcoming wedding.  Elissa's arrival is delayed by an unexplained visit to a physician. But worst of all, Kat's initiation into the Order has been indefinitely delayed: Kat sacrificed her mother's Guardian portal to save England, and all replacement portals have recently been stolen. Kat must work with the odious Lady Fotherington to find them before she can become a member of the Order.
 
Kat has a lot to manage on her own if she is going to distract Charles, make sure Angeline's wedding happens without fuss, discover what has happened to Elissa and help Lady Fotherington find the missing portals before they disappear forever. But add in a marquise with an inexplicable connection to her father and a mysterious dark figure who might be making attempts on Kat's life, and even fearless Kat Stephenson might be in over her head.
 
With a multilayered plot, lovable characters, and laugh-out-loud wit, STOLEN MAGIC is a delightful conclusion to the Kat, Incorrigible trilogy that will leave readers wishing for more.
