What a fun, hilarious book! It is a romantic comedy in book form and I was hooked from the first chapter. This book has some hilarious characters in the pirate butler, triplet servants and Gillian's gassy dogs.
Gillian Leigh is a walking disaster. She has just set curtains on fire when her cousin Charlotte tells her that the Black Earl is attending the ball. Noble Britton is returning to London society after the death of his wife so he can clear his name of her murder. He is with several of his friends when he spots Gillian across the ballroom. Nobles friends are shocked that he is interested in her. Sir Hugh calls her the "Amazon". After their marriage, Noble is the victim of some mysterious accidents.
Combine romance with comedy and a mystery gives this book a timeless quality. I was surprise to find out that it was originally published in 2002. It was a wonderful read.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
