For more information about this book:
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.
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.
