One Hot Knight (Entangled Covet) Christy Gissendaner
ARC supplied by publisher
I’m a sucker for a sweet romance. Sometimes I want deep, dark, thinking novels, then others I just want to relax with something gentle and not too taxing, a nice easy read but with some sexy spice to keep it on the edge. One Hot Knight ( and Yves is all that) delivers that. Its a fun read, easy to follow and with a novel storyline (hah! Unintended pun ). Regina, dog parlour and doggy play-date arranger finds a ragged, hungry St Bernard in the park. She takes him back to work, bathes and feeds him, and is astonished when on a last trip round the park before going home he turns into a naked man. A very Hot naked man! She’s shocked – who wouldn’t be, and scared, but after he changes back to dog then man again she believes what she’s seeing and takes him home. He tells her about the curse he’s under and that the reprieve he has is temporary, dependent upon his wearing the jewelled collar. After nine hundred years as a dog Yves is keen to break the curse permanently. I thought here we’d simply go on a search for the magic needed to sort things out – though how I’ve no idea that’s why I read and not write….but Christy takes it further, with bringing some of the past into the present including the witch that made the curse. Its a question of whether Regina and Yves can find the fix before the witch makes things worse. There’s lots of humour in the book, some sizzling, smoking sex scenes, and some tears in parts too.
Its not a great in depth read, but for those times you want to escape into another world without too much mental effort its perfect. Its priced at £2.18 for 149 pages, so OK VFM esp if its the sort you’d re read. For me its a one off but then my preference is for longer, deeper novels, but I do enjoy these lighter ones as a change and a diversion from the darker books.
Stars: well written, easy to read its a four star from me.
