Revealed is a lovely historical romance. Even though this may seem to be yet another spy drama where the spunky heroine tries to help the hero, Kate makes sure to throw all those clichés out the window. Phillippa and Marcus make a great team. What you see is not what you get. They have two sides to their nature. One side is their performance, an act they put on for the benefits of those around them. The other side is what they hide inside; their true face that they eventually show to one another. These are two people who are intelligent and caring but also very sly. Phillippa may think she has Marcus wrapped around her finger, but Marcus knows what Phillippa is up to and handles her quite well.
When we are introduced to Phillippa she is flirting with the Marquis of Broughton who would be perfect as her next husband. If they married, they would be the king and queen of the ton. Phillippa almost has the Marquis in the palm of her hand, but her enemy Lady Jane Cummings also wants the Marquis.Read more ›
However Phillippa' dropped glove ploy leads to Mr. Marcus Worth instead of the lord. Soon she realizes what Marcus' truth worth is when she concludes he is the notorious Blue Raven spy and fantasy of every female's dreams. Phillippa blackmails him into making her his partner in his effort to capture his adversary the French agent Laurant, who has escaped his efforts for ten years. He rejects her extortionist proposal, but changes his mind when he realizes there is substance beyond Almack inside this courageous young woman. However, the Frenchman has not been so elusively successful by not observing his enemies.
This is a terrific tale of "love and war" that contrasts the overabundance of Regency High Society with the dangerous world of espionage. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Phillippa knows who the Blue Raven is and never slows down as the pair team up to catch the wily Frenchman. During their adventures, the lead couple learn the true manning of a "bargain is a bargain is a bargain".
The tone of Revealed is airy and light, as frothy as the top of a wedding cake. Regardless of the events taking place, the author continues to write as though she's describing a party, instead of a spy's daring do. This might go over well with some, but it mostly just distracted me from the story. The Blue Raven is a wonderful character, but Phillipa is a lot to take, as she is seemingly spoiled and flighty. Watching them find their true colors would have been great had I not disliked the writing style. I am sure it would work for others; it just didn't work for me.

Marcus Worth knows there's something fishy going on in London's elite social circles, but without proof he's being treated like he's obsessed or mad or both. After all, the enemy he suspects is at the heart of these recent crimes was shot dead in France. But he has trouble gaining entrance to the places he needs to go to investigate, so Marcus reluctantly strikes a bargain with Philippa: he'll let her reveal the identity of the Blue Raven in exchange for her help in getting him invited to some very exclusive events.
As they spend more time with each other and Phillippa proves herself to be a very intelligent and helpful companion, they develop a friendship that turns into smoldering passion.
Revealed by Kate Noble is a cleverly written tale of espionage, danger, adventure and a heartwarming passion that develops from friendship and mutual respect. I especially enjoyed Phillippa's transformation from a catty and shallow bit of society fluff, to a caring and intelligent woman. I suspect the goodness in her was always there just waiting for the right person to help her discover it, and I like how the author brought it out.Read more ›
