Product Description

Product Description

The award-winning, laugh-out-loud Regency romance that launched the career of New York Times bestselling 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.

"Delightful and charming! A wonderful romp through Regency England." -Lynsay Sands, bestselling author of The Switch

"Sexy, sassy fun!" -Karen Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of How to Pursue a Princess

More About the Author

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE FUNNIEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ 21 Jan 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I kid you not this is the funniest book I've ever read, I actually fell off my sofa whilst reading this book I laughed so much and my boyfriend threatened to have me committed.. Noble and Gillian are fabulous characters, He the hapless hero always one step behind the beautiful and courageous heroine and she the delightfully forthright heroine to whom "things just happen" like her unfortunate habit.. this book is a definate keeper if only for the carriage scene which is the most brilliant piece of comic writing I've ever read...Honestly buy it you won't be disapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out Loud 25 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I absolutley loved this book. I couldn't stop laughing at the situations the Hero Noble found himself in all because of his new wife. All he wanted was a quite life with a nice biddable female. He was drawn to Gillian but found her to be the opposite of every thing he believed he wanted yet she was everything he needed. The characters and wonderful and endearing. The story is not all light hearted as Noble has dark history that he wants to forget but Gillian is determined to find out everything about her husband so she can win his love. Overall a strong storyline with witty and amusing characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an utter, charming delight!! 12 Sep 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Katie MacAlister joined my writers' community at MSN recently, so naturally I dashed off to buy her books since I had not read anything by her. I have been lucky at getting so many really talented writers that I love joining, so I am thrilled to say there is another!!!
This Victorian charmer is funny, heartwarming. I found myself with a big smile on my face nearly all the way through this!!!Her voice is sparkling, perfect for the period!!
25 year old, half-American Gillian Leigh is in London to attend her cousin's coming out season in the ton. She is quite delighted to be a wallflower - provided she could stop doing clutzy things like setting the Dutchess' favourite gold curtains on fire!! She does not waltz - she murders toes!!! She is outspoken, has dogs with a 'problem' that has everyone fanning the air!! She is a quick judge of character and is not afraid to blister her aunt for going along with the ton in giving the cut direct to the Earl of Wessex.
The Earl is in town for the first time in 5 years, following the death/murder??? of his beautiful wife, supposedly at his hands when he found her in the arms of her lover. He wants a wife to produce an heir, a mother for his illegitimate son, but most of all he wants a wife that will cause no problems, no gossip.
Gillian's cousin quickly sets sites on the dark earl knowing reformed rakes make the best husbands, but she sees the earl has eyes for her tall, amazon, redheaded cousin. He is drawn by her open honesty, and despite the smashed toes, black eye, bashed head and broken nose, he thinks Gillian is just what he needs. He will make her a countess, giving her everything - but his heart. However, Gillian is not about to settle for anything less and will wage a war of attrition to get it!!!!
A delightful, wonderfully writen read! Hope to hear more from Katie MacAlister!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great giggle on a wet afternoon 13 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
from the first moment I read this book,I giggled like a mad woman.The combination of the unorthodox heroine, the dark handsome hero and the mystery of his wife's murder made sure I couldn't put it down for more than five minutes at a time.
I shall definately keep this one.
Can't wait for her next offering.Hope it will be as funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too hilarious to be read in public 31 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
In one of the reviews the reader said she fell off the sofa laughing. I believe her. A brilliant book. The story in itself is good. A lord believed by the ton to be so cruel he killed his wife because she wanted to leave him for the man she really loved. Apparently she had been barren so he had a child with another woman! He is rumoured to have come to town and is to attend the ball where Gillian (who has been raised in Boston, America) and her younger cousin, having her first season, are attending. Gillian is a fiery red-head, highly intelligent and down to earth. She is also incredibly accident prone and, being half American, gets confused by the ways of the ton. Hence the book starts with her setting fire to the curtains at the ball... Somehow Noble is drawn to the 'Amazon' even though during their first dance she tramples all over his feet and actually asks him if he murdered his wife!!!! Despite all the accidents and her two beloved dogs who have a serious flatulence problem he quickly marries her. After their wedding night at his country estate, Noble returns to town. She follows him with his son Nick. Someone is trying to kill Noble or Gillian or both! Gillian has started to delve into the events surrounding his first wife's death. The situations and catastrophes not to mention the confusions that Gillian gets herself into and her husband's attempts to control her impulses is absolutely hilarious. I laughed so much my eyes were streaming. I'd no sooner controlled myself than Gillian did or said something else that sent me into hysterics. If I'd been in public I'd have been arrested. Hence the warning. I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romances with a bit of mystery and some beautiful sex. Just be prepared for the funny bits.

This book had great comedic value - I laughed out loud most of the way through the book - it is sheer farce and very funny farce at that.
