Review

“Kate Noble’s writing is smart and sparkling.”
New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick

About the Author

Kate Noble love books. Romances especially. But, being born into a family of doctors, scientists, and mathematicians, she didn't discover she was adept at writing until, oh, about junior year of high school. Which came as something of a relief, as she was hopeless at memorizing the Latin names for all the bones in the human body. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle eludes her to this day. Kate lives in Los Angeles.

Format: Paperback
I have to hand it to Kate Noble for really turning my opinion around with her latest release Revealed. For the first five chapters I couldn't stand the heroine, Phillippa Benning. Phillippa annoyed me right from the start. She is a widow and the darling of the ton. Her beauty and fortune is unmatched and she can ruin someone with the bat of an eyelash. In other words, I found her to be a stuck up bitch. She grated on my nerves because she came across as a snobbish, spoiled, and a bit mean. Phillippa is so un-heroine like. But then when she is introduced to Marcus Wroth, my opinion changed. Marcus sees Phillippa the same way I first saw her. But ever so slowly as his opinion changes about her, mine did also. By the end of Revealed I really liked Phillippa.

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.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on March 7, 2009
Format: Paperback
Only twenty-one year old wealthy widow Lady Phillippa Benning benignly rules the Ton. However, she hides from Polite Society her ennui with all the inanity that accompanies galas. Her only rival is the harlot Lady Jane Cummings; her adversary since they were students at Mrs. Humphrey's School for Elegant Ladies. Both are interested in the Marquis of Broughton.

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".

Format: Paperback
Phillipa Benning is the belle of every ball and the (nearly) undisputed queen of the Season. As a widow with means, she is able to do nearly anything she wants, including holding assignations with titled men. When one of those rendezvous nets her more than just a kiss, that's when her Season turns even brighter. When Phillipa discovers the identity of the famous spy, the Blue Raven, she knows just what to do with the information. Phillipa agrees to help the Raven with a mission that requires entrée into society and in exchange, she gets to reveal his identity at a ball at the close of the Season. Phillipa's involvement not only gets her closer to the Raven in ways she never imagined, it also brings her closer to danger.

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.

Kate Noble is a real joy to read. This is only her second book (I also liked Compormised) but I can't wait for her next one and the ones after that. I loved her characters. Unlike so many other romances, Phillipa has it all and we still like her and root for her. The best part is the mystery that is interwoven thoughtout the book. There is a lot of wit and sometimes I just laughed out loud like the sarcophagus scene. This is a great read for a rainy weekend.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book in the romance section of Borders as I was taken with both the story idea, new author, and cover during my quest for something over-the-top romantic + racy. Perfect I thought, a great, lusty romance from a new author who BTW does provide a fresh and fun approach (something needed in the romance arena.)

However, while I did enjoy the book's smart pace and clever descriptions I couldn't help but think that it belonged in the fiction section ... After reading authors like Lisa Kleypas, Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood it seems I'm used to a sexier approach and a lot more intensity from the main characters.

With Marcus and Phillipa there was much left unsaid and undone. Many scenes fraught with tension could have have been pushed a bit I think. More sex! More longing! While I enjoyed most of the scenes I missed some of the connections, for one, her friend Nora who was an absolute bore (couldn't she have a great side-kick!?) and two, I think she could have had more interaction with Byrne, his brother. *And couldn't he end up happy or at least see a "top-notch" doctor which I'm sure Phillipa has connections to?

In any event, I don't blame the story as it was fun to read ... more mystery and suspense and sort of an easy going "who-done-it." I just think they should change the cover and put it over in fiction.
