    • I was really intrigued by the idea of a hero with one arm. The rest of the novel is fairly standard romance - a seamstress is mistaken for a noble woman, gets kidnapped by pirates, falls in love with pirate, and helps pirate exact his revenge. The one-armed hero should have really helped set this apart from others in the genre and given it a neat twist or flavor.But that doesn't happen, at all. It's as if Novak wrote the book, sent it to the publisher, and they came back and said "Hey, do someth [...]


    • I thought the story was very good. Lot's of excitement and suspense with drama throughout the whole story and it ended well. My favorite character was the beautiful Alexandra, she seem to be very heroic throughout the story even though she started out meek and feeble at the beginning of the story. Nathanial of course my other favorite, being able to be a brave and strong despite his past when he was born and was cast out by his father. The romance and suspense was good between the two characters [...]


    • Another from the Kindle backlog. The story is draggy for reasons I can't put my finger on, and while the author keeps describing the chemistry between the hero and heroine, I'm not feeling it. Also, the hero was born without a hand on one arm yet it seems to work exactly like an arm with a hand about 90% of the time, except when someone is looking directly at it and remarking on the deformity. I think the author kept forgetting it was missing.


    • I had to DNF this, I'm bored to tears. When the H kisses his "supposed" sister on the lips to shut her up, that creeped me out. Gross!!!


    • ***Possible Spoilers.but I'm saving you some time.***Was interesting since the Hero of the story, Nathaniel, is born with a deformed arm. Sot your typical physical perfection from the Hero. But he's still very handsome and muscular and every thing else about him is typical romance novel perfection. When Nathaniel is born, his jerk of a father, tries to smother him since he is deformed. The father can't have a deformed son as an heir. The maid saves him and leaves.raising him the best she can. Ou [...]


    • Enjoyed it. Wasn't an all-time fav, but enjoyable enough. Lots of angstd lots of sexual tension building, without allowing the reader the payoff of seeing the consumation, which left me a little let-down. Intricate plot, leads readers on quite a ride. Likeable charactersough I was often perplexed by how much this one-armed main character could do. I have a one-armed friend, who is amazing with as much as he can do, but still, I think it unlikely that he could tie up an unwilling captive - or two [...]


    • Please tell me there will be a sequel!!! "Of Nobel Birth" by Brenda Novak, had everything a good romance should have, action, adventure and attraction.An engaging tale, where a babe of Nobel birth, born less than perfect , is rescued from an attempt on his life by his very own father, the Duke of Greystone. Much to the displeasure of the Duke, he lives to become a pirate, scoundrel to some, yet an honorable man, Capt. Nathaniel Kent of the ship the ROYAL VENGEANCE. I loved the strength of this u [...]


    • Of Noble Birth was a fun and exciting read! Captain Nathaniel Kent is the unacknowledged son of a duke, since he was born with only one arm. Raised by his father's ex-housekeeper, he grew into a life of piracy. But he only targets his father's ships! Then one night, one of Nathaniel's men is kidnapped by his father, so he sets out to kidnap his half-sister for ransom. Well, he winds up with Alexandra, who looks like his sister, but is really just a seamstress who was trying to hide from her abus [...]


    • Just because a book is free (with good ratings) doesn't mean it is actually worth reading. Sadly, I discovered this. I downloaded this from as a Free Kindle book. It sounded promising not spectacular. And I would say that is what I got. The story kept me mostly interesting though everything that happened was highly convenient and Nathaniel's missing hand didn't even trouble him when he had to tie ropes!Alexandra was a very stereotypical heroine with her easily succumbing to Nathaniel's charm an [...]


    • This is one of those rare reading experiences that will engage every level of the reader's brain. The romantic factor is certainly central, but the family situation for both Alexandra and Nathaniel are critical to the story's development; the politics of the time--the imminent nature of the Crimean War is very much present; the almost sociopathic nature of the evil that drives Nathaniel's father and brother are an over-arching canopy to the story's character and context. Just a wonderfully well- [...]


    • What can I say, for my first book by Brenda Novak I couldn’t have been happier. I didn’t realize until afterwords, that this was Brenda’s first novel. I have read alot of debut ficton over the years and this is one book that did not read like a debut. It was engaging from the get go, I liked that neither the hero or the heroine were perfect.Of Noble Birth will take you on a voyage and one that I do not think will disappoint anyone. Our hero is Nathaniel ( I love this name by the way), he i [...]


    • When the Duke of Greystone’s heir is born with a deformed arm, he tries to kill the baby, but his housekeeper manages to take his son and get away. Since the Duchess dies shortly after the birth, he reports that the baby died with his mother, remarries and has a son and daughter by his new wife. The housekeeper raises Nathaniel as her own child and though he has a hard life, he hasn’t his the handicap hinder him, although he hates his father and wants nothing more than to cause him trouble. [...]


    • I'm not one for historical romances but I couldn't help getting this book. Wronged hero, heroine in the wrong place at the wrong timed it grabbed me right from the start. What a sweet story this turned out to be! I'm so glad I ignored the few poor reviews on amazon and picked this book up. Brenda's got a great writing style and she's piqued my interest in her other stories. I'd very much to like to be mistaken for a scoundrel's half sister if Alexandra's story is the result!




    • I am a fan of historical novels. I really enjoyed the story of Nathaniel and Alexandra. The conflict, the deceit and the support received. The last line of the book actually made me tear up. If Greystone could just have accepted in-perfection, he could have had so much more.


    • This is a historical romance. The Duke of Greystone’s son is born with a deformity, the lower part of one of his arms never developed. When told of this, the Duke attempted to suffocate the newborn and his housekeeper intervened, and took the child to raise on her own. Twenty plus years later Nathaniel, as the child was named, decided to take matters into his own hands, since he is not allowed to claim his name and inheritance, he “pirates” his father’s ships and takes their cargoes and [...]


    • To see my full review:abookvacation/2014/05/23/rTruth be told, I tend to flock to the YA section of the bookstore, so Novak’s novel, Of Noble Birth wasn’t even on my radar until a review request piqued my interest, and I am very glad for it. Sometimes I miss out on gems like this historical romance because of my gravitation towards YA, and it takes books like this one to remind me to expand my horizons.Novak’s novel is awesome. It’s not too hot and heavy, which is great for a prudish rea [...]


    • Alexandra, is desperate to escape her cruel stepfather who beats her, she finds a way to escape with a disguise never expecting to be kidnapped and taken aboard a pirate's ship. Only they think she is a daughter of a lord so they can ransom her, but no matter how much she protests they don't believe her to be a seamstress. Nathaniel, is very bitter toward his father, but when one of his closest friends gets captured he goes out to capture his father daughter, and his step sistery he never expect [...]


    • This was an excellent book. The story was well written.Born with a deformed arm, Nathaniel Kent was almost smothered by his father until the housekeeper rescued him. She loved him and raised him until his father, the Duke, killed her. Vowing revenge, Nathaniel became a pirate and preyed on his father’s ships looting them of their cargo. When one of his crew was taken by the Duke, Nathaniel kidnapped his half-sister, only to find that the lady was not his sister but a humble seamstress named Al [...]


    • Just finish reading this wonderful story. It really show that disabled people can do anything to survive in this world. Nathaniel is an amazing character because he shows true strength in his ability to survive to prove his father, The Duke of Greyhouse, that even as cripple with only one good arm, he is a man not to be mess with at all and make his father' miserable. He defended those he loves and fight against his father and his half brother, Clifton. Alexandra is a seamstress who was running [...]


    • I know the cover is a bit cheesy but this book was actually really good! I had no problem staying interested in this one. It was not the typical historical romance. It had some suspense and they did not end up in bed every ten pages like some romance novels. It was close a few times but no more than than that and I find that some how refreshing. Sometimes less is more.I like the characters a lot. especially Nathaniel! He has such a big heart and he is courageous. He has only one arm and even tho [...]


    • Alexandra Cogsworth is a simple seamstress hoping to escape her abusive step-father when she is mistaken for the daughter of a duke and kidnapped by the pirate Nathaniel Kent. Nathaniel is the first son of the Duke of Greystone but because of his deformity (born without one arm) he was rejected and the Duke attempted to murder him. Now he lives to get vengeance on the man who fathered him. I love Brenda Novak's Romantic Suspense. In fact she is one of my most favorite writers when it comes to RS [...]


    • Ms. Novak's writing style is fluid and smooth, and marvelously descriptive. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat waiting find out what happened next. Talk about building sexual tension, at that, Ms. Novak is superb. Unfortunately, the story is filling with plot holes. They kept pulling me away from the story. They drove from Bristol to London in a carriage in two day? I think not. How did Nathaniel manage to do the things he did? At one point, the villains have his hand tied, to what? N [...]


    • Not Bad Just not Riveting If you have kindle unlimited and want to kill a few hours then your could listen to the audiobook as part of your subscription. The book isn't bad, it just isn't memorable. It's kinda like a Hershey kiss not the greatest chocolate but will still satisfy the need for a sweet treat. Then ending was a head scratcher and Brenda Novack contemporary books are a lot better. I listened to the audiobook and the performance was okay, the character voices varied from scene to scen [...]


    • I loved this book. You immediately felt sorry for Alexandra and wanted something better for her. You also wanted to see Nathaniel get revenge on his disgusting father. The story has twists and turns in it that make it a bit of a mystery on top of the attraction that Nathaniel and Alexandra have for each other. There was definitely action in the book as well. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, much like all of the other Brenda Novak novels that I have read.


    • I received this book for free from first reads program.This is a fun and exciting read. I was expecting more romance and less action when I first read the back cover of the book but was delighted to find the book packed full of adventure while still retaining plenty of romance. The main characters were likeable and interesting, I really liked the loyal pirate crew. This is a great fun book to read for a nice escape.


    • It wasn't totally a clean read, but it was a very captivating story and kept me wanting to read more. My favorite part was that Nathaniel wasn't 'perfect'. It was refreshing that he had imperfections. I didn't give it 5 stars because it wasn't a totally clean book.


    • This book had an actual bodice-ripping scene. The first half of the book had my complete attention, in that perfect enthralling escapism way. The second half dragged immensely. There were too many details and not enough to keep my invested in the story.
