A novel by Marisa Chenery
LADY KNIGHT [Erotic Historical Romance ] Saxon Lady Ariel of Elmstead disguises herself as a boy and leads her father's men to battle the Norman invaders. Her goal is to find the Norman knight who left her with child the year before. The only clue she has to his identity is the ring he gave her. During the battle of Hastings, Broc St. Ceneri takes a young Saxon boy as his hostage. The boy so resembles the Saxon girl he can't forget, Broc offers to train him as a knight after he is granted Elmstead as his own. With Broc unable to see through her disguise, Ariel must decide whether to risk all by revealing her secret, or say nothing and let the man she loves wed another. *** "Lady Knight is the story of a woman who takes her destiny into her own hands, and is brave enough to walk in a man's world during a time when a woman was not considered a man's equal. Ariel proves a woman can handle a sword as well as any man, and makes no apologies for it." ~ Marisa ~ *** 5 Stars: "Delightful Romance... I savored every word of Lady Knight. Ariel is a strong character. She not only fought beside seasoned warriors, she led them. She achieved the status of Knighthood, and yet was feminine enough to capture the heart of a Knight. Beautifully written, sensual, heartwarming, Lady Knight is sure to please fans of medieval romance." -- Debra Gaynor, Review Your Book *** 5 Hearts: "Ms. Chenery has written a great story with two lovable characters that at times I would have liked to shake. Ariel is a strong heroine that takes a stand for what she believes. She proves a woman can do anything a man can in a time when a woman was considered beneath men. And Broc is handsome, strong, and loyal but so stubborn and blind to what is right in front of his face. The trials these two suffer through are at times overwhelming, but they struggled through it all, including war, a disturbed evil man, being sold into slavery, and even being kidnapped. I would recommend this one to anyone looking for an excellent historical that will keep them on the edge of their seats, biting their nails or even itching to shake someone. I loved it." -- Sandra, The Romance Studio.
