It's not very often you come across a hero who manages to successfully combine strong, invincible warrior with hopeless romantic. It's a tricky proposition. And then combine that with a resourceful heroine with hidden depths, skills and passions, mixed together with an unlikely setting (1848 revolutionary Germany) and you have this intriguing and unusual one, which was provided to me by the publisher through netgalley.

I absolutely loved how this one managed to combine so many difficult elements
Lover of Romance
First off I want to say that I spent almost a week trying to get this one read. And when I was about halfway through the story, I decided to just let it go. I have always felt you shouldn't force yourself to read something. Especially when there are so many other books I would like to read. I don't think it was the author's style of writing that let me down on this one, the main reason really surprised me, but it was the hero's character. I loved the heroine way more than the hero. Now don't get ...more

Catherine LaRoche is a new author for me but the blurb about this book sounded too good to pass up. Of course, I've been searching for new authors for a while now and I'm happy to report that this author is on my new Must Read list!

I really liked this book but it wasn't without its flaws. For the most part, the things that I didn't love about this book was the heroine. That's not to say that I hated Lady Lenora. I definitely liked her but I fe

Knight of Love is a wonderful tale of adventure, romance and intrigue! It’s full of fun conversations, steamy love scenes (very well done) and marvelous adventures. Characters so well written and unique, you can know and love them (and even despise a few)! This is one any romance fan wouldn’t want to miss! Well done, Ms. LaRoche!
The time is 1848, and we step right into the adventure on the first page! Lady Lenora Trevelyan has been engaged to Prince Kurt von Rotenburg-Gruselstadt (wow, what a ha

Much has been said recently about how unimaginative the historical romance genre has become, with its obsession with the upper echelons of Regency England. Readers have been encouraged to support books that dare to venture beyond that narrow time period and same old, same old dukes and feisty ladies trope.

So Knight of Love seemed exciting from the outset, with its Victorian era setting and a story that takes place mostly in Germany.

I didn’t want to be negative about this book,

I was given an electronic copy of this book for an honest review via Netgalley.

It's pretty rare for me to not finish a book. I got about 40% done with this before I decided it was no longer worth my time because of lack of interest.

Basically, we have Lenora (the female lead), and she is engaged to a horrible German Prinz named Kurt. Her parents left her at his home before the two are married (that alone is pretty weird to me). Once they leave he starts showing his true colors and abuses her like

This is one of those books that I wanted to like more than I actually did. I put this book down and really finished it with sheer will and determination. This was not an easy task because the book was rather lengthy. There were some parts of the story that were very interesting (like the historical context) and some parts that I could have done without (like the hero and heroine).

The story started off pretty well. Lady Lenora Trevelyan

Knight of Love: Is Chivalry Dead or Just Enfeebled?

This was a book I really enjoyed — especially the ironic switch that the hero believes in the fairy tale, true love, and the chivalric code, but the heroine doesn't. I did feel for poor Wolfram, the hero, though — repeatedly spurned when he is just being a good guy and doing the noble thing.

Also, it takes place during the turbulent period of the German period of revolution against t

Disclaimer: I received a free e-copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Early reviews on this one were disappointing, to say the least, but I figured I'd give it a try for several reasons. The setting during all the German revolutions in 1848 intrigued me, as well as the fact that the book largely takes place in one of the tiny German states of the time period. I studied Victorian history pretty extensively at one time in my life, and it's nice to see that someone else f

When I started reading this book it was full of action and adventure. The heroine is Lady Lenora Trevelyan who at the start is being flogged by her sadistic fiancee who insists she is being stubborn and willful. The bad guy is Prinz Kurt von Rotenburg-Gruselstadt of Germany rules the castle and town with an iron fist. No one would go against his authority to help Lady Lenora. The peasants aren't to thrilled with her or the Prinz, but one man takes the lead when she is ordered to be released from ...more

Lady Lenora Trevelyan is the beautiful daughter of a duke sent abroad to marry a German princeling. She is shocked to discover her fiancé is a sadistic royal bent on breaking her. Forced to flee into the countryside rife with revolution, Lenora meets Wolfram von Wolfsbach, a chivalric rebel. He falls instantly in love with his captive and proposes marriage to save her. The resulting tale is filled with melodrama and miscommunication.

3.5 Hearts Wow, so many things going through my mind about this book. I still can’t decide on my feelings, so I’ll just concede to them all. I fell in love with Lenora very early on in the book when in she said, “…don’t let me fall. I don’t want them to see me fall.” I knew instantly that this was an incredibly strong character who would never be swayed by anyone else save herself. I wish I’d known how true that really was! Lenora did not pull any punches, especially when it came to Wolfram! ...more

Amazing new author for me! I loved this strong heroine and how she stand on her own feet and insists she doesn't need a gallant hero! Poor lovesick Wolf! He's a strong alpha male who insists Lenora is a "damsel in distress" and he's the "Knight of Love" to save her! This is a break from the traditional Historical Romances. This heroine will go to great links to save her hero!!
