"A very amusing Regency romance"
Five years ago Noble Britton's wife mysteriously died.
Unable to resist putting a scandalous label to events
without supporting facts, the Ton "logically" concludes
that Noble was involved in the death. Dubbed the "Black
Earl" by his peers, Noble rusticated for the last few
years, but now seeks a new wife, one who is mousy and
behaves with proper decorum.
Gillian Leigh does not want a coming out, but though
too old at twenty-five, too American by a half, too tall by
a head or more, and too accident prone she has no choice.
So why does Noble want to meet and marry this amazon
paragon who literally sets the Ton on fire if he seeks an
unobtrusive spouse? Love works in mysterious ways.
NOBLE INTENTIONS is a very amusing Regency romance that
will delight sub-genre fans especially since Noble lives up
to his name as he is the victim of Gillian's pratfalls.
The lead couple is a delightful pairing whose story line
remains true to its basic slapstick like theme. Fans who
enjoy a jocular look at the foibles of the Ton will want to
read Katie MacAlister's humorous tale -- just keep ice
and bandages handy in case one falls while laughing.
