If you like quirky witty dialogue with characters with flaws you will enjoy this book. It is a laugh out loud delight. Don't let the slowness of the first fifty pages or the brattiness of the heroine stop you from reading this romance.
I love Katie MacAlister's writing. She has a way of incorporating humor and romance perfectly. In fact I have not read one of her books that I did not like, and Noble Destiny is no exception. You don't have to have read book one of her Noble series, but if you did you will be revisited by some memorable characters such as Crouch the butler. For me the mark of a good book when I realize that I am smiling, laughing, or crying about what I am reading. Katie is an incredible author, one I highly recommend.
I enjoyed this book...parts of it were laugh-out-loud funny! However, the attitude of the heroine in the beginning was incredibly annoying. It got better as it progressed, though, and overall wasn't a bad book.
Absolutely not recommended. Such a dud for me. I love witty romantic books, and this was not it...at all.
Four years ago, the Ton was stunned when Lady Charlotte Collins eloped with Italian Count Di Abalonia. However, that marriage ended tragically and now Charlotte returns to England to what she believes is her rightful place amidst the aristocracy. However, her peers have a long memory and refuse to accept Charlotte back into the fold. Her only recourse to regain what she lost is to marry her way back.
Lord Alasdair "Dare" MacGregor attends the wedding of his sister where he meets Charlotte for the first time since just before her scandalous marriage. Dare enjoys the verbal battles with Charlotte just like he did five years ago, but has no plans to marry anyone. All he wants is to flee London so he can return to working on his marine engine, but Charlotte knows he is perfect for her to overcome her past, not that his owning her heart hurts her decision.
Readers will enjoy the war of words between the lead couple though why Charlotte insists she must return to her place of prominence is never fully understood. Still, she is a refreshing individual whose antics with the hero is not only amusing but also provide insight into the options Regency women had. Dare is a delightful counterpart who needs a catalyst to realize he cherishes Charlotte more than his engine. NOBLE DESTINY will please sub-genre fans with its battle of the sexes plot starring two fine protagonists.
She chose to return to England and shunned. The only alternative was to marry. The man she chose refused to coorporate, but he was everything she needed. She was led to take extreme actions. A vary halarious story. She even shot him to cheer him up. She was determined to gain his love at all costs.
Incredibly funny book as well as a wonderful historical.
did not like the heroine-was a conniving brat
the second in the series with Noble Intentions and The Trouble with Harry. Good with a bit of a slow start.
Early Katie MacAlister but good. A worth while read.
the heroine is so selfcentered in the begining i put the book down and started another book. I came back to the book and things did improve. the book is funny and i did enjoy the book. I was suprised by how much this trait in the heroine really bothered me.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Katie MacAlister. I have read so many of her other books. I was very disappointed in this one. The heroine was so silly, and unlikeable I couldn't get past the first chapter.
