Noble Intentions by Katie MacAlister

Format: Kindle Edition
Print Length: 384 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (6 May 2014)

The award-winning, laugh-out-loud Regency romance that launched the career of New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister.

Take one infamous earl...

Noble Britton, Lord Weston, has come to London intending to revisit old friends, enjoy a modicum of society, and-oh, yes-find a mild, biddable wife.

Add an irrepressible American

Gillian Leigh's Unfortunate Habit of speaking her mind and Shocking Susceptibility to Accidents have left her on the shelf at five-and-twenty. So why can't Noble resist her?

And good intentions are bound to fail

When Gillian meets the infamous Black Earl, she knows that at last she's found a man who can match her zest for life, even if that entails the occasional arson...or kidnapping. Not to mention the encounters with his former mistresses...

Although life with Gillian involves as much chaos as laughter, Noble fully intends to claim her for his own-if she doesn't accidentally kill him first.

Cover: A cute, typical historical romance cover.

I've not read a Katie MacAlister book before, and when I saw this was available through NetGalley, I thought I'd give it a try, as I do love my Regency Romance reads.
I enjoyed this one.  It's a humorous, light little read.  I do feel the romance element did suffer from the author trying to make the book TOO funny.
Gillian stearted out, seemingly intelligent, with feminist tendencies- but she quickly dissolved, misunderstaning simple things, and acting strangely insipid.
Over all I enjoyed this as quick read I didn't have to think too much about, but wished the humour was scaled back, and the character of Gillian was more likeable, and less irritating.
2.5/5 stars.
