The Truth About Leo Initial Thoughts I enjoyed this new addition to Katie MacAlister's Noble series This book focuses on Princess Dagmar and her love interest Leo If you are not sure that you'd like historical romance this series may be a good start as it combines historical romance with a great some comedy It's guaranteed to bring a smile to your face As an added bonus characters from the earlier books make a lengthy appearance in this book It's so nice to see Gillian and Noble Harry and Plum and a grown up Nick with lady problems of his own The ReviewI fell in love with Katie MacAlister’s Noble series when I first read Noble Intentions I am convinced that nobody writes historical romance like Ms MacAlister Her books are full of the usual romance however they can also be classified as romantic comedies full of hilarious situations and tongue in cheek humor The Noble series is a perfect place for the uninitiated to get a taste of historical romance and all of its rather strange vocabulary Can you tell that HR is not my usual genreThe Truth About Leo is the fourth book in the Noble series and while it can be read as a stand alone book you’ll want to go back to Noble Intentions just to meet Gillian and Noble and her two smelly dogsWhat I love about this book is that the women are certainly a force to be reckoned with These women are not the demure shrinking violet of the time period – they are opinionated and resourceful and they do keep their men on their toes In The Truth About Leo Her Serene Highness Princess Dagmar sort of weasels her way into Leo’s life In fact she weds him when he was injured and unconscious She does have some regrets and offers him an annulment however Leo seems to like the irreverent Dagmar It was amusing watching Leo and Dagmar get to know each other I loved how their romance built slowly over the course of the bookEach chapter begins with some sage motherly advice from Dagmar’s mother brought about by Dagmar’s mischievous behavior The topics are hilarious and underscore exactly what type of personality Dagmar had as a young girlI enjoyed seeing characters from the previous books make an appearance in this book It was nice to visit with Gillian and Noble along with a grown up Nick Noble Intentions and Harry and Plum and Thom The Trouble With Harry Of course there are references to Plum’s scandalous book about connubial calisthenics tooThe Truth About Leo was a lot of fun to read It’s a perfect book for a summer read at the beach I’m looking forward to reading of Ms MacAlister’s books in the future Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for a review copy of this bookReview posted on Badass Book Reviews Check it out I'm so frustrated by this series I didn't really like book 1 and 2 but then I LOVED book 3 However I've been disappointed by 4 I understand what the author was trying to achieve in the jail section but it was not only confusing but began to look really messy It's hard to get characters to talk at the same time on paper and make it understandable That being said I really liked the beginning even if the novel was once again very predictable as I thought the set up of the story line was not only interesting but also fun and different But when they all cram into that jail cell I feel that not only have the characters lost the plot and a couple marbles but that I have as well This is a fun read I really liked Dagmar and how she uses finding Leo to her advantage and the way the plot unfolds A light hearted sweet and fun read The Truth About Leo was a wonderful historical romance I really liked this book It was entertaining and thoroughly enjoyableDagmar was a good heroine She refused to let anyone even the king of Denmark tell her what to do with her life and she was clever or perhaps impulsive enough to figure a way out She was a likable heroine and I thought she was greatLeo was a total sweetie He was the definition of a gentleman totally adorable and utterly endearing I really liked him I thought he was perfectThe romance was lovely Dagmar and Leo were great together and I liked how they both didn't bother to hide their feelings for each other And the chemistry between them was hot considering how they both could keep their hands off each other or at least couldn't stop thinking about it I thought they were great togetherThe plot was well paced and I was hooked the entire way through though the story did start to drag near the end The story was delightfully funny and entertaining and though it did cross the line to silly at a few points it kept a smile on my face There was a surprise in store that I never saw coming about one of the characters I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovelyThe Truth About Leo was a wonderful light and fun romance I really liked this thoroughly entertaining read From the sweet romance to the surprising secret and the endless fun this book was lovely Romance lovers this is a book worth checking outI received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review nope DNF at 2% Terrible reader Literal Cat Saving in the first 2 min Annoying My boobs are too big conversation Mediocre at best other reviews Not wasting my time even though it is a library find “That’s the second time you’ve saved my life”“I’m a princess” she said loftily as if he needed reminding “Saving handsome men from certain death is what we do bestThat and waving gracefully to crowds Have you ever seen me wave My mother taught me Oh dear author I've missed youI attribute Katie MacAlister to jump starring my reading heart when I picked up Love in the Time of Dragons whilst perusing paperbacks at my local Target one Sunday afternoon in 2010 Real life had put my love of reading romance novels on a back burner for decades and with children then off to college me finally done with college work life and personal life in perfect chaotic order I was looking to reacuant myself with my first true addiction romance novels Baltic Tully and Brom were just what I didn't even know I needed Then I read everything on KM's backlistso I am well versed in her writing career and remain a stalwart #fangirl4ever With that said I also understand much of the reviewer's comments about her most current writing style that of a Marx brother's slapstick comedy routine And I am in agreement In part Her stories can be farcical and silly with some of the banter verging on tedious but who doesn't need a little silly served with a poignant romance Poo poo to those reviewers that feel they need to pick apart her stories to leave them less yet miss the main parts for what they are wortha happy go lucky witty madcap love affair that ends with a HEA for two fictional characters that are made exactly for each other You know you'll always get a few chuckles wide eyed smexy times and a HEA with a Katie MacAlister storyyou just have to have the time to take that trip down the rabbit hole for that sip of Mad Hatter teaWhat can I say other than I've had this one on my dusty TBR listy for far too long The Noble series is on the lighter side of historicals romps where the imperfect heroines are uirky and their lonely alpha ish heroes are well noble Oh and I still am in love with HarryAnywho Leo and Dagmar are adorable together The mystery is not that mysterious albeit needed to have something to bring all my faves of the series sadly no Dare or Charlotte togetherliterallyall in one prison cell together And it looks like there won't be a separate story for our young lovers Nick Noble's son and Thom Plum's niece view spoileras their tale is wrapped up within these pages hide spoiler Can Dagmar flee Denmark Dagmar Marie Sophie is a poverty stricken Danish princess
