 The producer of Noah should be ashamed! Russell Crowe should be ashamed! Do not go see this atheistic film! It has nothing to do with God!
    This movie is an abomination! It will lead people astray that haven't read the Bible and don't know what God said. This man is on dangerous ground for God says in the Bible if one dot is taken from the Bible and used to mislead that God will judge them.  This atheist producer has strayed so far away from the Noah of the Bible that I actually gagged. I was appalled when Noah wanted to kill his newborn grand daughters. 
    I was sickened when demons (fallen angels) built the ark and went back to Heaven? Hello? Demons go to Hell and so will this producer. Russell Crowe did a brilliant job of acting but I'm ashamed I ever liked him as an actor. 
    He perverted God's Word and seemed to enjoy it. I shall never watch him again in anything and I was one of his biggest fans, but no more. We have Cain on the Ark eating the animals alive? Nasty and Wrong like so much of this nasty filthy lying movie of Satan. 
     Never does Noah pray to God or worship God and Noah was a Godly man that was why he was saved! 
     This film is an affront to God to Christianity to Judaism and Islam. This film sins in the sight of God and this Producer is in danger of Hell fire!!

Title: Intentions of the Earl
Author: Rose Gordon
Genre: Regency Romance and  Historical Fiction
Review Rating :Five Stars
Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs

     Exciting and Different
    The poor and desperate Andrew Black the Earl of Townson is recruited to ruin a young girl from the Banks family by Benjamin Collins, the Duke of Gateway. 
     The Duke was rejected by Miss Brooke Banks and the Duke is determined to make the whole family suffer. He wants them all to leave and return to the states. He has the deed to a piece of property that the Earl wants. They strike a bargain and the Earl is off to the Banks family residence to choose among the three daughters: Liberty, Madison and Brooke. Andrew sets his sights on Brooke immediately and becomes fascinated by her. Brooke falls for the poor Earl and determines she will have him so when he kisses her she allows him liberties and soon finds herself ruined. 
     Andrew isn't sure about the agreement any more when he becomes enamored with Brooke, but it seems it is already too late for Brooke's reputation. 
     This is an exciting Regency and I found it different and intriguing. I enjoyed reading it. I give it Five stars for character development and plot. This was a different kind of regency where the heroes were not very heroic looking because of their schemes. I was glad that the hero finally woke up. 
I recommend this Regency read to everyone who loves regency romance.
