The award-winning, laugh-out-loud Regency romance that launched the career of New York Timesbestselling author Katie MacAlister. Take one infamous earl... Noble Britton, Lord Weston, has come to London intending to revisit old friends, enjoy a modicum of society, and-oh, yes-find a mild, biddable wife. Add an irrepressible American Gillian Leigh's Unfortunate Habit of speaking her mind and Shocking Susceptibility to Accidents have left her on the shelf at five-and-twenty. So why can't Noble resist her? And good intentions are bound to fail When Gillian meets the infamous Black Earl, she knows that at last she's found a man who can match her zest for life, even if that entails the occasional arson...or kidnapping. Not to mention the encounters with his former mistresses... Although life with Gillian involves as much chaos as laughter, Noble fully intends to claim her for his own-if she doesn't accidentally kill him first.

Funny scenes, cute but went on too long ( )

REVIEW:
Small confession. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I have read this book about 10 times...AND I bought the audio book which I have listened to 3 times. Have I mentioned how much I love Katie MacAlister books? (see my post Author Heaven )

Yes, I completely relate with the klutzy leading lady, Gillian, who has an unfortunate habit of speaking whatever is on her mind.

Yes, I think Noble Britton/Lord Weston is all broody alpha with a gooey center. Very sexy.

There is also the quirky cousin, Charlotte, looking to make a good marriage but having an interesting grasp of the English language with whom I could completely see myself plotting many an adventure.

Oh, to be described as "unconventional" or an "original". I don't know how Katie does it but I may need to buy this in paperback, too.

Hilarious Regency Romance. Noble decides that when he marries for the 2nd time, he'll marry a sweet, biddable wife. When he meets Gillian and her spontaneity, he throws his plan out and marries her, sure he can turn her into his ideal wife. But American raised Gillian is full of "Unfortunate" thoughts, words and deeds, throwing calamity into everything. ( )

Read for Fun /Listened for Review (Tantor /Library)
Overall Rating 4.75
Story Rating 4.50
Character Rating 5.00

Audio Rating 4.50

Fun Rating: 5 X a billion. Quite frankly it has been awhile since I have read something just downright delectably fun!

First Thought when Finished:Nobel Intentions by Katie MacAlister was hands down one of the most unique Historical romances that I have read!

Quick Thoughts: This was all about the FUN! Gillian's unfortunate habit. Noble's inability to tame her. All of that plus a great cast of characters made this one of my favorite historical romances. It won't work for some but it certainly worked for me!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Alison Larkin / Length: 11 hrs and 21 mins

Allison nailed it! I really thought she was a perfect match for Nobel Intentions. I am pretty happy with the narration and hope to get the rest on audio.

This is the first book in the Noble series. Romance written with smart funny dialog. This was an enjoyable romance that had me laughing at times.

Noble Britton suffered greatly at the hands of his first wife, and he refuses to fall into the same trap again. This time he intends to marry a quiet, biddable woman who will not draw attention to herself or cause scandal. Gillian Leigh’s honest manner and spontaneous laughter attract him immediately. It matters little that she is accident-prone; he can provide the structure necessary to guide her.

But unconventional to the tips of her half-American toes, his new bride turns the tables on him, wreaking havoc on his orderly life. Perpetually one step behind his beguiling spouse, Noble suffers a banged-up head, a black eye, and a broken nose before he realizes Gillian has healed his soul and proven that their union is no heedless tumble, but the swoon of true love.
