I never knew Katie MacAlister wrote historical novels and I’m so glad that I stumbled on to this one! I love this author’s witty style. The dialogue in her paranormals always leaves me chuckling out loud and this one was just as pleasing and left me laughing and snickering quite often. I believe Gillian is my favorite heroine ever! I can easily identify with her clumsiness and her coloring. And I believe I might even share her Unfortunate Habit. I couldn't stop the happiness I felt at reading this story, Gillian's actions and attitude left me smiling long after the last page was just a memory. I know that I will reread this one over and over again. Noble is everything you dream of in a rakish hero. He's just this side of taciturn yet loses his control when dealing with his feelings for a certain unusual young lady. I am so happy to learn that this is the first in a series and have already added the new ones to my to-be-read pile and the author to top of my historical favorites list. If you love laughter and love than this one comes highly recommended by me.
