Book Review | Lilly Gayle | Slightly Noble

Slightly Noble

Author: Lilly Gayle
Title: Slightly Noble
Genre: Romance

Synopsis: American privateer, Captain Jack isn't really an American, but heir to a viscountcy. When his father dies, he leaves everything not entailed with the estate to his worthless cousin. Jack's only hope of inheriting his mother's ancestral home and honoring her dying wish is to marry and produce an heir before his thirty-fifth birthday—in five months. And he doesn't have a single prospect. Pregnant and unwed, Abigail Halsey is sent by her father to an Anglican convent until he can find a family to adopt his grandchild or a husband for his daughter. Abby has other plans, but they go awry when she goes into labor early and her rescuer, a pirate captain turned lord, insists on marrying her. Is Jack too much like his jealous, unforgiving father? Can Abby overcome her fear of men and have a real marriage? Or will she never be anything more than the unwanted wife of a Slightly Noble Viscount?

Review: This book is brilliant and well worth taking time to lose yourself in this book. The storyline is gripping and you will be hooked after the first few pages. I generally do not read romance novels but I found it easy to get into this storyline and I found it hard to put the book down. I couldn’t wait to free up time to read some of this book and find out how things worked out for the characters.
