Format: Mass Market Paperback
Miss Gail Alton thinks that attending the Season will be boring. But she soon realizes that her assumption was totally incorrect. She meets a fascinating (and in her opinion rather arrogant) stranger, her sister Evangeline is compromised and it looks like she will have to agree in a rushed marriage. When Gail is introduced to her sister's possible husband, she is shocked to recognize in him the stranger whom she couldn't forget.
When Maximillian St. John, Vinscount Fontaine, met Evangeline Alton for the first time, he thought that he found his match. But he soon realizes that the short shared moments in moonlight were a bit like a dream. In real life there are no sparks or common interests between them. Instead he finds himself drawn to Gail. She is the woman who provoked him since their first meeting and she is the one he can't get out of his thoughts. Max is a man of honour and doesn't want to take back his promise to marry Evangeline. But he also realizes that he will find happiness only with Gail.
Will Gail and Max find a way to get their happy end without hurting the people close to them?

I'm usually very critical when I'm reading historical romances. More often than not they bore me and I don't know why. However there's not one thing that I have to criticise about "Compromised", in my opinion it's perfect.
Right from the start on I knew that this would be a "happy" book. A book that makes you happy while you read it and that you will reread in moments when you need a bit of happiness in your life. "Compromised" is a book that will make you smile a lot and that will make your heart flutter when reading about the beautiful love story between Max and Gail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good read 12 Sept. 2015
By S. Thorp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kate Noble tells a good story. I've enjoyed all her books so far, and this is no exception. Even if historical romances are always to some degree improbable, they can still incorporate important takeaways. The takeaway here is the importance of common interests and temperaments in successful relationships. This was a tough lesson for our hero but he finally figured it out. And in a secondary storyline, our stepmother learned important lessons about raising and relating to and caring about stepchildren.
3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars, A nice story. 4 July 2014
By Tracy T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a nice story. A bit of fluff for sure, but it was nice. I liked the heroine better than the hero in this story. She was a strong smart witty character. It could have been shorter by a couple of hours. There was 1 nice sex scene but I thought the sexual tension was lacking a bit or maybe it was the chemistry. It was also missing any plot or mystery and no surprises at all. Very predictable.

I wont be racing to read another of this authors books.

I listened to this via audible as I read along and the narration I thought was very good. I think that is what kept me interested.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 22 July 2015
By StephLee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book, couldn't put it down! I highly recommend if you're looking for a good regency. Not sure why it had less than 4 stars on Goodreads, but I'm picky with giving out 5 and this one deserved it! I'll be checking out another Kate Noble book next.
5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprise 13 April 2011
By Kat DeVane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This was my first book by Kate Noble, and I must say it was a pleasant surprise. It starts off very slow, and the heroine initially comes off as silly, and it looks as though the older sister and stepmother are just going to be cliched characters. But Ms. Noble is able to give her characters depth, and to make them complex. It is beautifully written how the H/H develop a friendship that turns into love. This is a witty and tender book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Fun to Read! 30 Jun. 2011
By The Allure of Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Compromised by Kate Noble is a really fun historical romance novel. It is the type of book that, as you read, gets more and more frustrating and you want to yell at the characters to "FIGURE IT OUT ALREADY!" I love the type of plot line in which the characters are determined to do (or be) one thing, as the reader is quickly made aware that they should be doing the opposite. I think it's a really great way to get readers invested in the character's lives incredibly quickly - you can't help but want to see how long things take to get right!

Max Fontaine falls into insta-lust with one of two sisters, Evangeline. He falls into insta-annoyance with the other, Gail. He and Evangeline quickly find themselves in a compromising position that forces him (although he is, in fact, willing) to propose. As they try to get to know each other, Gail is always along for the ride acting as her sister's chaperon. Max eventually discovers that Gail's personality might be even more alluring than Evangeline's beauty - but it's too late to do anything about it. Right?

Like I already said - this was so much fun to read. Gail's personality really is very addictive: she is extremely witty and hilariously abrasive. Evangeline was a little harder to like, just because her character was much more subdued....but she is by no means a villain. Max's character had to grow on me a little bit, since he was initially so shallow (immediately thinking he loves Evangeline just because she is beautiful). However - it's really hard not to fall for him after seeing his reactions to being in Gail's company. It isn't just their chemistry that's electric - the way their personalities switch between clashing and melding is very charming to read.

Overall, this novel is very appealing: lighthearted and fun. The characters will quickly grow on you and you'll have to keep reading to find out how their stories turn out! If you're a fan of historical romance, Kate Noble is definitely a must-read author.
