Sealed With a Kiss: Kate Noble and Giveaway

Kate Noble love books. Romances especially. But, being born into a family of doctors, scientists, and mathematicians, she didn’t discover she was adept at writing until, oh, about junior year of high school. Which came as something of a relief, as she was hopeless at memorizing the Latin names for all the bones in the human body. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle eludes her to this day.

Places to find Kate:



If I Fall is one of my favorite romances I’ve written. It has everything I adore – swashbuckling, secret identities, a mystery, a murder, and true love saving the day. But the trip my characters Jack and Sarah take to get there – well, it’s bit crooked.

When Sarah Forrester was a child, she was not in love with Jackson Fletcher. Oh, they were friends of course, and she likely trusted him more than any other person. After all, she trusted him with the secret of who she really was in love with: The Blue Raven, the mysterious spy of the Peninsular War, whose heroic exploits filled the newspapers, and Sarah’s young impressionable imagination.

She even wrote the Blue Raven a letter once, long ago.

Dear Mr. Blue Raven –

I did not know whether to call you “Mr. Raven” or “Mr. Blue Raven,” so if I have erred, it is on the side of caution. I also did not think that you would be “Sir Blue Raven”, although considering all the amazing deeds your have performed on behalf of your country, I can only assume it is a matter of time before the crown bequeaths you as such. (That is, if you are not already a Lord, a circumstance which would make you more appealing in the eyes of my mother, I think.)

Even though I do not know your real name, or proper form of address, I feel like I know you, Mr. Blue Raven. Because, you see, you have been in my daydreams ever since your exploits in Peninsula first appeared in the Times. I know you may think me rather too young to read the Times, and my mother would agree with you. Luckily, my father does not and he sneaks me the paper.

I love you. Is that too forward? I imagine so, and yet it does not matter to me. I’ve admired you so long – I’ve been reading about you since I was eight, such is my devotion. You are truly marvelous. My particular favorite story is how you ducked behind enemy lines and found the opposing army general’s orders in the pocket of a soldier’s uniform on the floor of a house of ill repute. Although, no one would tell me what about this house made it of such ill reputation. Was it badly constructed? That is not important, however.

Even though we have never met, and my name has never been in the papers, I feel as if you know me, too. And dare I hope, my feelings would be returned? You don’t have to answer – and if you did I would likely die of embarrassment – but if some reason brings you to Portsmouth, I invite you to visit my family at Primrose Manor, just outside of the city. I’ll be the one in the tricorn hat, saving my little sisters from pirates.

With all my heart –
Sarah Forrester
Age 10

But now grown up, what will Jack do with this information – and how can it help him turn the brittle and beautiful Golden Lady back into the Sarah Forrester he knew as a child? The answer can only be found in If I Fall, coming April 3rd!

Check out Sarah and Jackson's love story in IF I FELL-Coming April 3rd!

Every great romance comes with a risk...

After a duke's betrayal, the resilient Sarah Forrester reinvents herself as the Golden Lady: society's leading light, the beautiful and witty life of the party. It's all a fa├žade of course-one that protects her from another intimate disloyalty. When her old friend, Lieutenant Jackson Fletcher, returns to London, he is determined to rediscover the true and trusting Sarah he once knew. It'll take more than a kiss and a promise. It might even call for an innocent and necessary deception.

Then Jackson is enlisted to help capture the lead suspect in a murder— a man who happens to be Sarah's most ardent suitor. Jack must continue the deception, and weathering this newest and gravest betrayal will be Sarah's ultimate test. But as Jack's passion for her grows, he must also reveal his own secrets. And as the killer turns his attention to his pursuers, more than love and trust is put at risk.
