MY RECENT RELEASE REVIEW of

King’s Knight

51iwavyc3sl

Medieval Warriors Book 4

by Regan Walker

Publisher’s Description:

HE SEIZED LIFE BY THE THROAT

Dubbed the Black Wolf for his raven hair, his fierceness in battle and his way with women, Sir Alexander of Talisand attacked life as he did the king’s enemies. But acclaim on the battlefield and his lusty escapades did not satisfy. King William Rufus would bind him to Normandy through marriage to one of its noblewomen, but the only woman Alexander wanted was a commoner he had saved from a terrible fate.

SHE KEPT MEN AT BAY WITH HER BOW

The shame of being the child of a Norman’s rape dogged Merewyn’s steps from her youth. Determined never to be a victim of a man’s lust like her mother, in Wales she donned the garb of an archer and developed extraordinary skill with a bow. Despite her fair beauty, men now keep their distance. No longer in need of protection from other men, can Merewyn protect herself from Alexander when he holds her heart yet can never be hers?

My Thoughts:

This was an engrossing tale situated in Medieval times.
Our Hero and Heroine have known each other since childhood but after the hero goes away for fostering which was commonplace in those times, the heroine also goes away with the assistance of a Welchman..
Both are away from home for an extended time.
The story takes place after both return to their home.
Is it possible for a bastard child of rape and the son of nobility to become the couple that both wish for?
I found this book to be well written and the characters well developed.
I gave this book 4.25 stars of 5 for storyline and characterization and 3 of 5 flames for heat.
I would read other offerings from this author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title.

Publisher’s Description:

51btizcbmglDo you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you’d never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd – He’s Just Not That Into You? The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn’t heed their mother’s advice or haven’t read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter’s best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul’s brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.
Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure – of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul’s story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp.
