This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

A poor widow, Lady Charlotte Collins returns to England eager to take her place in the ton, only to find herself shunned by all. Her one choice is to marry a groom with wealth, a title, and good looks, but Alasdair McGregor cruelly refuses to be the answer to her problems.

In fact, she is forced by Dare's obstinacy to take extreme action: the faulty codpiece that leads to their marriage, the wedding that is literally a circus. But nothing can stand between Charlotte and what she wants most: the love of her husband.

A cod piece used as a reticule.. WHY NOT, LOVE IT

Would you consider the audio edition of Noble Destiny to be better than the print version?

I love reading and listening to books.... there is nothing like using your imagination. I will say when listening to a book the image changes to match the voice of the narrator

What did you like best about this story?

The balance between humor and drama... I also love the way the hero understands the heroine. Though at a glance Charlotte seems superficial and self-center she has a deep loyalty with those she loves and is somewhat vulnerable, which Alasdair understands.

Which character – as performed by Alison Larkin – was your favorite?

Lady Charlotte

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Tedious and unlikable main character

This book was the equivalent of watching a very superficial spoiled brat grow up - annoying and not charming. I will admit by the very end of the book I liked Charlotte better, but spending 75-80% of the book disliking the main character is not fun. Also the comic device of malapropisms grew tiresome after awhile. Alison Larkin's performance was probably the only thing that kept me going till the end. This was a sad disappointment after Noble Intentions.

heroin too frustrating

Although the story was funny and performed greatly, the small thinking and ignorant stubbornness was tiring. I originally gave overall 3 stars, but with the later character growth I'll give it 4 stars.

Cute but annoying

Great story but the butlers dry humor and lengthy rants almost made me quit. It was just too much.

Charlotte is adorably flawed

It had to take work to purposely use the wrong word so frequently but still get one's point across clearly! Bravo! Charlotte's combustion of the English language is excellent comic relief. Again, lovely characters and interesting storyline. Loved it!

Unlikable heroine

I enjoyed book 1 and 3. Even this book has some funny bits in it but I could not finish. Heroine, who was not too bad in book 1 became insufferable in this book.

While I would not search out Alison Larkin to listen to, I am becoming more used to the tone of her voice.

Almost funny but...

This book can only be recommended if you enjoy a heroine that is an egocentric, shallow and generally stupid. While I have enjoyed many of Katie MacAllisters books, this one just annoyed me. I don't know if I want to waste another credit on the next book in the series.
