From New York Times best-selling author Katie MacAlister comes the third book in the Noble Historical series, originally published 2004 by Leisure Books.
Just What is the Trouble With Harry?
1. He is Plum’s new husband. Not normally a problem, but when you consider that Harry advertised for a wife, and Plum was set to marry his secretary, there was cause for a bit of confusion.
2. He has a title. Plum has spent the last twenty years hiding from the ton, and now Harry wants her to shine in society? Horrors!
3. He doesn’t know about her shocking secret. How is she going to explain about the dead husband who isn’t a husband…and who now seems to be alive again?
4. He’s fallen in love with her. And yet, the maddening man refuses to confide in her. For Plum knows the real trouble with Harry is that he’s stolen her heart.

"This is a romp in the truest sense. It's great to have an older couple (he's 45 and she's 40) finding happiness after tragedy. The memorable characters, witty dialogue and suspense make this a book well worth reading. MacAlister's unique style makes her an author to watch." (RT Book Reviews)
After suffering through Charlotte in book two of this series, this third book is a welcome return to the likable characters and funny situations that made Noble Intentions so much fun. Alison Larkin is, as always, good at varied voices, believable accents, and comic timing.
I was having a bit of a downer day and this book was just what the doctor ordered! It was very funny! It reminded me of some of Georgette Heyer's books. The main characters are great and I loved the fact that there wasn't much angst. The "diablitos" (children) are a hoot. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
It was a comedy with a fast pace and completely unrealistic events. The plot was good but the ending kinda bugged me. It seemed incomplete leaving me wondering if the secret got out and how the heroine went from being hurt to happily ever after. Not that it matters really because the whole story was full of inconceivable and truly laughable events. After listening to the sample I thought the narrator would annoy me but it was really good too. Larkins unique performance kinda fit the historical and the comedic parts of the story which I imagine isn't easy to do.
