He visits his childhood home in rural Pennsylvania rather than spend the holidays alone in San Francisco. But only a few days with his family is enough to convince him that you can't g ...more

This book had nearly everything I despise in a romance. Instalove, forced tension, terrible dialogue, boring sex, a protagonist who can't stop thinking about his douchebag of an ex...

And from the looks of it, the sequel is worse.
Silent Knights starts promising. Paul Stanton is on his way to the airport after a visit to his family in rural Pennsylvania. We’re following his thoughts and learn about his, not so joyful, relationship with his parents and his recent breakup with his boyfriend Craig. The description of the snowstorm he’s in, is vivid and you know something is going to happen. And yes, a tree nearly crushes him and he has to leave his car.
Then we switch to Andy Reynolds. He’s hunting in the woods until the sto

Attorney Paul Stanton was recently dumped by his boss/lover. He reluctantly trudges home to rural Pennsylvania to see his estranged family and his sister's new baby. After spending just a few days with the family, however, Paul decides to brave a blizzard in an effort to get to the airport and onto a flight headed back to San Francisco. He's stranded in the woods when a fallen tree blocks the road. A chance encounter with a handsome hunter, Andy Reynolds, saves Paul's life and he ends u

Finally...... A cover with some smokin hot men!! Not boys who look like they're still in high school, butt ugly, an odd alien race, etc. Normal, down to earth hot men. Thank you Gale Stanley for having great taste!!
Book is pretty damn good so far. Liking this author, loving the characters!!
Just finished the book was pretty happy with it. Yeah, the I Love You's came a little earlier than I like, but the story was just so sweet and I loved both Paul and Andy. It was a quick read, yet had plenty of

This book lost me at condoms in combination with vaseline as a lubricant.

2.5 stars.

This story had potential, but it tried to cram too much into too little time.

I've come to expect insta-love in Holiday reads, but I think this one carried that trope a bit too far. Paul has just been dumped by the guy he thought was "the one", Andy is hiding out after losing his love, but just a couple of days together, and they're both in love? They have deep conversations about their lives, but those mostly happen off page, so we miss that connection. There are important details of b

This is the story of Paul, a lawyer from San Francisco, and Andy, who is currently living in a small cabin in the back woods of Pennsylvania. They meet on Christmas Eve. Paul has reluctantly gone back to his childhood home in PA to visit his family, but he can't stand the strain any more and leaves on Christmas Eve. But he gets stranded on the road in a snow storm. Andy is out deer hunting, and nearly runs into Paul on his four-wheeler as Paul struggles through the snow on foot (I had defini

Picked it out because I liked the cover, the story didn't disappoint.

Sometimes, a 300-page-book would be more effective as a short story without feeling too rushed or even incomplete --> kind of like cliff notes. This is an example of a short book that “could be” prolonged nonsensically to explain a simple, essentially angst-free, plot. Don’t get me wrong, I like those extended plots as well (especially when the expansion includes sex scenes), but this condensed style worked fine for Silent Knights. I didn't feel like I missed anything too important and also i ...more

Clare C's Review

Silent Knights is my first exposure to Gale Stanley, and I was very pleased by the experience. Paul and Andy are both unhappy men. Each has isolated themselves in their own way. Paul distanced himself from his family and spent the time pursuing plastic relationships. Andy fled to the mountains of Pennsylvania. A snowstorm traps them together right around Christmas.

They share some amazingly sweet and erotic moments that force them to come to terms with what they truly want from li

2.5 I probably would have liked this better, insta love and all, if I hadn't read the blurb for the sequel. Paul isn't the most likeable character anyway, but all the talk of being together, not sharing, no threesomes, being romantic and wanting just someone to love came across as SO hypocritical when you know that within two years, Alex already isn't enough for Paul and he is adding a third to make Paul happy. At that point Paul is no better than cheating Craig, and I wanted Alex to find someth ...more

Review by Kerri:
WOW! This book delivers a lot in short length of time. But it works to the reader's advantage.

Both characters are flawed and likeable. Ms. Stanley is most definitely talented when it comes to writing M/M erotica.

The emotions run high in this one, and the sex is smokin'. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed. And while the snowbound scenario has been done many times before, Ms. Stanley makes it her own and it works quite well.

This author is new to me, but I will look at her
Jul 24, 2011 Lee rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Silent Knights packs a lot of good in its all too thin page count. I liked that the characters are a little older and that they have a good idea what life is about. I also liked that the sex wasn't the main focus of the story. It was hot, but it wasn't overpowering. The pace felt very organic and natural, not rushed as some short stories are wont to do.

I give Silent Knights four stars.

I read the author's paranormal stories and decided to give this one a shot. It was my first MM story and I liked it. I'll read more in this genre.

This was my first Gale Stanley book and I really enjoyed. Paul and Andy were great together and I thought the story was well done. I liked the bumps in the road on their relationship.

Paul is having the holiday from you know where and now he's trapped in the snow with a mountain man. Sometimes you find live in the most interesting places.

2.75 rating. It was an okay read, but I just didn't click with the characters like I usually do :(

I like the way the characters were developed. There was actually a story along with the sex.
