A Winner Takes All Novel (#3)

 

A thrilling and absorbing tale about two people who find so much safety in each other that they’re able to take the biggest risk of their lives. Not to be missed.”

Kirkus Reviews (STARRED REVIEW, The Dare and the Doctor)

 “Noble asks “Can men and women just be friends?” in the third Winner Takes All installment, and the answer is an enchanting tale filled with poignancy and wit…readers will be caught up in the plot as the hero and heroine’s letters reveal more and more about themselves and their relationship…secondary characters enhance the storyline and propel the romance. Noble crafts a lovely, easy-to-read story.”

—RT (FOUR STAR REVIEW, The Dare and the Doctor)

About the book:

National bestselling author Kate Noble’s THE DARE AND THE DOCTOR lures readers back to the dazzling, irresistible Winner Takes All Regency Romance series.

Margaret Babcock has always been content with her quiet life in the country. But every now and then, she feels the urge to spread her wings. Her late mother used to whisper, “What’s the worst that could happen?” at the start of an adventure, and now Margaret’s continuing the tradition. So when Dr. Rhys Gray, her longtime correspondent on matters botanical, invites her to speak to the London Horticultural Society about her new rose hybrid, she accepts. She’s excited about her first visit to London, but even more so about getting to see her friend Dr. Gray. When she arrives, Rhys is eager to show her the wonders of the city, and the two spend many happy hours together just as friends, of course! But would friends miss each other quite as fiercely when they’re apart; or feel such a spark when they’re together? Margaret finds that friendship with Rhys is much more complicated than she’d imagined…especially when it turns out her friend has forgotten that he may be promised to another woman.

My Thoughts:

I have only read this book and the novella from this series but found both to be exceptional.

Kate Noble writes with humor and angst that dazzles the reader. Her storyline draws the reader in.

Both the Hero and Heroine are likeable and believable and along with the secondary characters are well developed.

I could not put this book down. It is a provocative story of friendship that turns to unexpected love.

I would give this title a 4.5 out of 5 star rating for characterization and storyline and 3 of 5 flames for heat. The heat is not non existent but waits to become apparent in the later chapters.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.


 Praise for the Winner Takes All Series

 cover-final“With her usual witty writing and exquisite flair for booklist_starreview_badgecharacterization, Noble offers [The Lie and the Lady]. The effortless manner in which she wrote. The Lie and the Lady as a separate love story while at the same time gracefully connecting it to The Game and the Governess and cleverly hinting at what is to come in the series is nothing less than brilliant.”

Booklist (STARRED REVIEW, The Lie and the Lady)

 “After a scandalous escapade with John, a commoner she thought was the Earl of Ashby. Letitia returns to England as the fiancée of a somewhat older, titled widower- only to find out that her new home is right in John’s backyard . . . heartwarming.”

Publishers Weekly (The Lie and the Lady)

 “The Earl of Ashby trades places with his friend and secretary in order to prove he can wincover-final_2 a woman without the benefit of his title in The Game and the Governess…It’s a delicious treat to watch Ned grow from earl to man, and see the stalwart Phoebe get everything she deserves.”

Bookpage (TOP PICK IN ROMANCE, The Game and the Governess)

 “The subtle development of romance between the devil-may-care earl and the proper governess is the impetus behind this winning novel, complete with rich characters and a multi-dimensional plotline.”

—Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW, Best Summer Romance pick, The Game and the Governess)

A Re-Cap of My Review of

Miss Goodhue Lives for a Nightcover-final_3A Winner Takes All Novella

Description:

Next in the witty, sexy Winner Takes All Regency series from Emmy winner Kate Noble, author of The Game and the Governess and writer of the wildly popular web series, The Lizzie Bennett Diaries.

Cecilia Goodhue is a schoolteacher with a past, living with her sister and her husband in a tiny English village. Resigned to a quiet life, Cecilia is surprised when she finds out that her young cousin has run off with a man of no means.

Cecilia had once been a teenaged girl who also fell for a young man’s charms—only to be devastated by his betrayal. Determined to not let her cousin meet the same fate, she heads off to London to but is shocked when her investigation leads her right to the front door of the very man who broke her heart: Theo Hudson.

Together, they reluctantly embark on finding her cousin and returning her to her family. During their searching in London, it soon becomes clear that they both remember their short-lived romance differently and perhaps now, years later, they have a fresh chance at love.

My Thoughts:

I loved this sexy, funny title by Kate Noble.

It isn’t a long read, but held my interest.

The characters are well developed in this short historical with just enough angst to keep your attention.

Both Cecilia and Theo have misconceptions about their previous elopement and separation. I enjoyed the story very much. The storyline is both poignant and comical.
I would give this book a 4.5 star rating and highly recommend the read. The only drawback is the length of the book as I wished for it not to end.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.
