If He’s Noble
The second I have read in this wonderfully engaging series, If He’s Noble compiles all of the elements together for a gripping read. Heroine in danger? Check. Evil family villain? Check. Hero with honor and good intentions? Check. Fast-paced action, chemistry and a believable set of circumstances? Check, check and Check.
See, Primrose’s father has died under mysterious circumstances and her Aunt and Uncle are in control. Her uncle is vile, but in that drinking, gambling and carousing uncaring inattentive sort of way. Her aunt, however, is a grasping power-made greedy woman, willing to go to great lengths to eliminate competition for the not unsubstantial family fortune and power. With only Primrose having the power to stop her aunt’s plans, she sets off to find her brother and warn him of the dangers posed by her guardians.
Bened Vaughn, like all of his family, is possessed of something ‘extra’ that makes them more than human. In family history, this extra has led to fear and loathing, witch hunts and more. But, in a more enlightened time, with the Vaughns and Wherlockes all finding life is moving along well. Bened has been working in personal security for the nobility, and this has brought him wealth, a title and lands. But, coming across a bedraggled lass, recently unseated from her horse and a little frantic, he listens to her story. While he is intrigued by Primrose, he’s finding himself honor-bound to help her.
These two are adorable together. Primrose had suspicions, but never could she have imagined the depth of the danger she would face, but fortunately Bened is well-versed in protection and ferreting out motivations and plots. Determined and while not ‘seasoned’, Primrose is ready to face off to stand on the side of right in this battle of right and wrong. Raised with a certain knowledge of society and expectations for a woman, she is more than able to help and support Bened as he navigates the waters of society with his newly acquired title, and it’s no wonder that their friendship moves to love. Not only because he saved her, but for her essential sweetness and belief in him, and her stalwart support. A wonderful and fast paced installment with plenty of twists and some great reveals of motivations and machinations.

New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell delivers adventure and instant attraction in this all-new Wherlocke Family novel...
For Lady Primrose Wootten nothing has been ordinary since her father the Baron died and his wayward family filled the estate with greed and treachery. Primrose knows if she can just track down her brother, he can send the odious relations on their way. But instead she finds this enormous, powerful stranger, and forgets entirely what she was doing in the first place...
Sir Bened Vaughn isn't much afraid of a pistol. But he is a bit afraid of the woman holding it, who stirs up something so primal he's not sure he can shake it off. Vaughn is an honorable man, and he knows he has no right to desire Primrose. Yet he does have an obligation to help her, and as they learn more about her brother's disappearance, he realizes that means staying by her side...wanting her all the while... and wondering how much longer they can resist temptation...
