Thank you to Shannon Burke for recommending this to me :)

Coming in at book #7 really hurt me here, I felt lost with all the Wherlocke family talk and their abilities.
It's a road romance where I thought the main couple fell in love a bit quickly while trying to find the heroine's brother and warn him about their evil aunt.

I absolutely devoured If He's Noble.

Primrose is running from an evil aunt and a horrible marriage arrangement. She hopes to find her brother so he can save her from her aunt's nefarious plans. Instead she runs into Bened Vaughn, who in all good conscience can't allow Primrose to search on her own.

The chemistry is electrifying.

The story riveting.

The aunt absolutely villianess.

Wonderfully suspenseful, If He's Noble brings a slightly paranormal flare to a marvelous historical romance.

Highly disappointed.

I usually love Hannah Howell's books especially the Murray and Wherlocke series but this one felt unfinished.

If He's Noble felt plot felt disjointed and unpolished. Howells' books usually have a very clever and very smooth plot but this one didn't.

I didn't totally feel the chemistry between the two and I felt it was strange that Bened tried to leave at the end because it didn't fit his character at all. It felt like Howell was just reusing an already overused trope of hers.

5 Couldn't Put It Down STARS!!

I have DEVOURED every book in this series.
If He's Wicked (Chloe & Julian)
If He's Sinful (Penelope & Ashton)
If He's Wild (Althea & Hartley)
If He's Dangerous (Lorelei & Argus)
If He's Tempted (Olympia & Brant)
If He's Daring (Catrin & Orion)

They can be read as stand-alones, but I have truly enjoyed following this enchanting Family with their psychic gifts.

It really feels like you

First of all - I love this series and Ms. Howell’s family of Wherelocke’s and Vaughn’s are so totally unique, creative and totally imaginative it’s hard to have to wait for the next books detailing this amazing family.

Right from the start we are introduced to Lady Primrose Wooten who is in a desperate search for her brother now that her beloved father had died under mysterious circumstances. If she cannot locate her brother in time, her odious aunt and uncle are attempting to marry her off to a

The Wherlockes are a special brand of people and Hannah Howell does them so much justice in this series. Each Wherlocke and/or Vaughan was born with a gift. A gift that got them tossed from their families, spouses leave, burned at the stake, land confiscated and worse.. but the family has survived and stayed strong. In this enlightened time (pre regency) they have finally been able to come out of hiding. Their estates have grown,

I was less than impressed with this book. I was excited for Bened to fall in love in his own book so the wait for this book was long and torturous. However even more of a torture was reading the book and finding what felt like an unfinished story. I would have waited a not her few weeks if the story would have been more flushed out. The major action scenes were so fast they felt like they were on fast forward. There were several questions and ideas brought up through out the book and then prompt ...more

I absolutely loved the other books in this series but I am sorry to say that this one fell some what flat for me. All the parts that should have made this a true Wherlocke/ Vaughn novel were missing or at least it seemed this way to me. In all the scenes with any of the family you barely even noticed they were there. Little to no conversation or seeing them use abilities. There was one particular dinner party that was sadly underused in the worst way. There you have a new arrival in the midst of ...more

Great historical romance! I thoroughly enjoyed If He’s Noble! I’ve read a couple of Hannah Howell’s books in the past and had forgotten how much I enjoyed them. If He’s Noble was a fun and exciting romance with witty characters and a gripping plot. It’s well written and hooked me from the

I enjoy this series even though they can be hit and miss for me. If He's Noble was not very exciting and I thought the trope was just litle too over the top.....I've seen this before, many times. Howell LOVES wretched, very evil female villains and I don't. Even though I will always read the new installment of The Wherlockes/Vaughns.....I like the idea of a magical family and usually the W/V are so very interesting.....not this time though.

A Little Disapointing But Still A Good Plot **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Lady Primrose Wootten is searching for her brother when Sir Bened Vaughan sees her tangled in the woods looking for her horse. Her father had just died and she needed to let her brother know and avoid their aunt. When it becomes clear that their aunt wants more than to just take over. Bened refuses to leave Primrose. While there is more to him than normal men, she slowly makes him want

Primrose may be a lady but she can appreciate certain things, "hey had just reached the shore when she abruptly realized he was bare-chested. And a magnificent chest it was, she decided." Bened I found him strange but I fell in love with that strangeness, "the one you just formed by bringing this little dog into it. Dogs need to know who is the head of the pack from the start or you will have a very hard time training them to do anything." Rose sometimes has to put her foot down on things Bened

I love Hannah Howell's Wherlocke series. It's always nice to visit such a special and unique family. This book did not disappoint. the only complaint I have is the hero displaying my two biggest pet peeves in romance novels, martyrdom and running away. I absolutely hate when a hero or heroine suffers in silence because they're "protecting" loved ones from their troubles. And I also hate when a hero or heroine runs away from a situation or confrontation instead of trying to resolve things or get ...more

What can you say about Hannah Howell...she is one of the best writers I think! I love her books and have read almost all of them! This book was great! It is the seventh in the series "Wherlocke'. But with all of Hannah Howell's book you don't have to read them in order, so this is a standalone book. too. Lady Primrose Wootten is the heroine of this story. She is being invaded by greed driven family members that are really awful! She goes for help in the way of her brother but meets the hero this ...more

This is another great book in the Wherlocke series. This one focuses on Bened Vaughn and Primrose Wootten who is being hunted by her aunt for her and her brothers inheritance. Of course, Bened stumbles on her accidentally and Sir Bened cannot allow Primrose to search for her brother alone so luckily he joins the quest.

And yeah a good portion of the Wherlocke/Vaughn crew enter the picture but the action only leaves Primrose and Bened for scenes of her brother, Simeon and a newly found Wherlocke

The only thing about this book that I did not enjoy…was that it had to come to an end and I will have to wait again for the next book of this series! Why must our favorite authors torture us so! I loved how this book had me both gasping with shock one minute and laughing the next, again Hannah Howell’s characters were well fleshed out, very dynamic in a story that had you glued to the book.

It was a little slow in a couple of spots, but other than that, it was an amazing adventure that had my hus

Lovely romance surprisedly entertaining and captivating. Right amount of thrill to keep you reading. I for one devoured the characters of Primrose and Bened, just electrifying. Both of them made me anticipate the kind of turmoil they will face together or apart, always wondering. That is why this made for a good historical romance read. Received a free book, winner Goodreads First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz

Strong characters, mysterious intrigue and mystifying storytelling. Thank you Kensington and NetGalley for reintroducing me to Hannah Howell. Ms. Howell creates stories that stimulate the imagination. Her stories are never dull. There are always numerous surprises waiting to be discovered. I received an ARC of If He's Noble in exchange for an honest review. With a book this good my only disappointment is that I discovered it with book 7.

Ok I finished them and sad to say I am glad I didn't spend money on them. Basicallyif you've read the first one you've read all of them with some very minor changes - the characters all have awesome potential but the stories needs mixing up a lot - each book is pretty much the same. *big sigh* I had high hopes PNR meets historical romance but alas...

If’s He’s Noble is the seventh installment of Ms. Howell’s ambitious Wherlocke series. An entertaining and somewhat dark series that uses love, humor, heroism, revenge, and a wee bit of the supernatural to guide our hero and heroine past adversity and into true love. Action and suspense go hand in hand as two souls come together to stop a mad woman from further destroying a family’s life. This can be read as a stand alone and you do not have to read the others in order to appreciate this story, ...more

I knew from the moment that Bened found Primrose stumbling around in the woods, looking for both her glasses and her horse (both of which were close by to begin with) that I was going to like this book. I vaguely remember reading a few of Hannah's other books before in the past but I don't recall if I enjoyed them as much as I did with this book. Primrose is trying to hunt her brother Simeon down, both to let him know that their father has passed and that he now carries the title of their househ ...more
