Dream Knight Book Tour: Review + Excerpt + Giveaway!

Welcome to my post for the Dream Knight book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as an excerpt and a giveaway for some books. But, before we get to that, allow me to introduce the book:

Dream Knight
Release date: November 26, 2013
Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group
Genre: Historical (Medieval) Romance

Dreams of a powerful, black-armored knight resolve into sweet salvation for the captive lady of Brezden Keep—and true love.

“I WILL NOT MAKE A GOOD HUSBAND FOR YOU.”

Such was the warning of Lady Catheryn’s husband-to-be, the powerful warrior who dispatched her dishonorable guardian, unknowingly answering both her prayers and nocturnal visions. And he seemed right. His past was too bleak, his nature too violent. But Baron Gerard also promised to never beat her, to be kind, to care for Brezden Keep and her people, and the spark in his eye was not kindled by bloodlust alone. His strong hands could be gentle and build fires in her. So perhaps the witch and her magic sachet had the right of it. Perhaps Gerard of Reveur was not only a protector but a better husband and a truer love than either of their tortured souls could ever imagine.


My Rating: 4 Roses

A lovely historical romance, Dream Knight was an enjoyable read. I really liked this book. It had unpredictable twists, lovely romance, and it was a wonderful read.

Catheryn was a lovely heroine. She was very strong and determined to keep her people safe at all costs. I had some issues with her, mainly that she could be arrogant and was frequently stubborn about the wrong things. But, I understood her reluctance to trust, so it was a minor problem. Overall, I liked her.

Gerard was also great. He was strong, determined, and formidable, but he could also be very sweet and was fair with his people. He could be a bit of an ass, when he got stubborn, but I still liked him.

The romance was good. The attraction was there from the beginning, and it definitely got hot. Their feelings took a bit longer to develop, since they had to rid themselves of all the distrust, but when they finally fell, they both fell hard and I thought it was sweet. They were a lovely couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. There were enough thrills and some twists to keep me drawn in. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Dream Knight was a lovely historical romance, with a touch of magic. I really liked this book. It was a truly enjoyable read. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.

Excerpt:

Catheryn took a deep breath. “How long will such a memory be enough?”

He paused. “What are you asking?”

“In the days since we have been married, we have shared a bed only one of those nights.”

Ah. Gerard knew now where her thoughts strayed, but he wanted them voiced. Here and now. “And?”

She inhaled loudly before asking in a rush, “How many of those nights have you sought your bed alone?”

If he laughed, she would never forgive him. If he raged, she would think him guilty. As her master and lord of their household, what she thought should not matter to him, but oddly enough it did. Even though he’d known her less than a month, her thoughts did matter to him. A great deal.

Turning her around, he grasped her wrist and placed her hand against his chest. “As long as my heart beats, I will be true to you. I swore a vow that I have not yet broken and will not break as long as I live.” He held her startled gaze and lifted her palm to his lips for a kiss. “The vow is sealed.” He closed her fingers over her palm. “Hold this sealed vow in your hand for as long as your heart desires. Always remember that no matter what your eyes may show you or what your ears may hear, that what I have told you and shown you in this chamber tonight is the truth.”
