Product Description

Product Description

Enjoy unforgettable characters and irreverent laughs in the Regency series that launched the career of New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister

You think you've got troubles?

As a spy for the Crown, Lord Harry Rosse faced clever and dangerous adversaries-but it's his five offspring who seem likely to send him to Bedlam. At his wits' end, he's advertised for a wife and found one, but perhaps he should have been a bit more forthcoming on certain points...

Wait till you meet Harry and Plum...

Frederica Pelham, affectionately known as Plum, spent years avoiding the scandals of her past, and is desperate for quiet security and a chance to make a family. What she finds is a titled husband and five little devils who seem bent on their own destruction, not to mention hers. And while all kinds of secrets are catching up with them, Plum knows the real trouble with Harry... is that he's stolen her heart.

"Memorable characters, witty dialogue and MacAlister's unique style." -RT Book Reviews


Answering an advertisement for a wife, Plum just may have found the man of her dreams in her new husband Harry, a titled aristocrat and former spy, whose dangerous past and mischievous brood of children make her life delightfully chaotic. Original.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A regency romp 11 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The heroine Plum is 40years old; she looks after her orphaned niece. We know from the start that Plum was 'sort of married' 20 years ago which caused a large scandal, so that she has never found a descent husband. Now she is destitute and so replies to Harry's advert.
Harry is the hero he is an ex-spy a widower and father of 5 energetic children. The children need a mother and Harry wants a companion but Harry does not want to do the 'season' thing so places and advert in the local paper (he is new to the area).
Over 30 women apply but Harry chooses Plum and they marry. However both are keeping secrets. Plums secret is that she is also Vyvyan La Blue author of the famed "Guide to Connubial Callisthenics". Harry has 3 secrets 1) He is a Marquis, 2)He has 5 children and 3) His spying days maybe coming back to bite him on the butt.
A light hearted romp follows with an odd over enthusiastic butler, plus blackmail and kidnapping thrown into the mix.
If you have read Katie Macalister s books before you know what to expect, if you have not and want a funny light take on a middle aged couple in a regency romance with a dash of adventure this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Katie Mac is back with her best book yet! 11 Aug 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Katie Macalister is one of the most delightful (and prolific) writers in Romance today. She is not Shakespeare, but then I, for one, thank goodness for that! We already have old Will. When I want the Scottish Play, I blow the dust of my very ancient copies and read it. When I want sheer fun, I look to Lynsay Sands and Katie Macalister. I love British humour (works out nice since I am Scot!), but that dry wit is often missing in the works of a lot of American writers. I am not talking about highbrow humour, but that you-can't-help-but-howl-aloud Benny Hill wacko laughs! The kind that has your erupting with buffos, has people looking at you as if you have gone around the bend one too many times, the kind that has your husband exiling you from the living room while he is trying to watch CASI because you are making too much noise. Many writers can provoke a giggle. Few make me laugh so hard I hurt. There is nothing more special a writer can do for you. They leave you feeling good all over.
And Trouble With Harry is a sheer delight from page one! One of my favourite Hitchcock movies carries this name. It was deadpan humour that was just so on target, so it's not surprising to find this book is the same. It's a delightful Regency - and from the opening scene where beleaguered Harry is trying to explain the facts of "womanhood" to his eldest daughter - you are already laughing out loud!
The Trouble with Harry, 45-years-old- is a father, coming to parenthood late in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny 3 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book so ordered the first two as well!! Very funny and easy read- she's one of my favourite authors, but usually read her paranormal romances. This historical one I would highly recommend and look forward to reading the others in the set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but pretty darned good 7 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As readable as ever, this book will give you a few good laughs (though not as many as, say, Corset Diaries). Not one for the historical purists, but still entertaining and pleasing.
