This is another hysterical historical romance by the talented Katie MacAlister. This is the fourth book in her Noble series (Noble Intentions, Noble Destiny and The Trouble with Harry being the previous). Characters from the previous books do show up in this story which makes it a wonderful way to catch up on what is going on with those characters but you don’t have to have read the previous books to thoroughly and completely enjoy this one. The characters are unique and truly funny. The situations which they find themselves are fantastic. And, the fact that there is a mystery that reveals a long kept secret is perfect. I couldn’t put this book down and found myself laughing at loud. The romance is great but the humor is better and this book shows each off to perfection. Lovers of historical romances have to give this book a try. And, any Katie MacAlister fan will quickly recognize her off the wall wit and fall in love with this series. I can’t say enough good things about this one!
Dagmar must find a way to get to England or else her cousin will have her taken to a convent……which won’t work as Dagmar is not Catholic. The British Navy says she can have passage if she’s married to an officer but Dagmar doesn’t see her finding an officer and getting married within two days. Her friend, Julia finds a drunk man in her garden and Dagmar has no idea what she is suppose to do with him! However, the drunk man isn’t drunk but injured. Leo doesn’t remember how he was injured or how he came to be in Dagmar’s garden. He is able to tell her his name and that he’s a major in the Army. With the doctor stating that Leo will not live through the night, Dagmar decides to marry him and maybe the Navy will give a widow a ride to England. But, what happens when he doesn’t die?
The much-anticipated, brand-new Regency romance from New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister.
