Patricia A. Knight is the pen name for an eternal romantic who lives in Dallas, Texas with her horses, dogs and the best man on the face of the earth – oh yeah, and the most enormous bullfrogs you will ever see. Word to the wise: don’t swim in the pool after dark.

A Note About My Reviews:
Book reviews are wildly subjective. Many things influence whether or not a reader enjoys a book that are out of the author's control and unrelated to the quality of their writing. My book reviews deal with books I can recommend as having entertained me. For this reason you will not see reviews below a 3-star rating. My reviews are recommendations not critiques. I read books I don't like--books I can't finish. I just don't review them. I also do not review bo

Hi Mistik,

From your lips to God's ear! I'm sure my publisher would agree about the need for a clone. I'm 2 books behind for the year! Darn hospital.

I have already started on V#5. The MCs in "Hers To Captivate" are Hel's brother, Tristan, Tristan's crush from before the Haarb wars who has risen to captain in the Verdantian space fleet and Pansy (Angelica Giverny from Cherish). In response to MANY requests, I'm writing all y'all a M/M/F again--not that it's any hardship! LOL

To protect her from the slaver cartel, Tok has accompanied Angelica to Verdantia. Angelica is there in response to an invitation from the 2nd Tetriarch to set up a psychological and neurological center in the space port of Arkodaenia to treat the returning noble women with medical issues. Tok will find a large love interest, literally, a large love interest.

And of course, where there is Tok and Pansy, you must have Ramsey and Steffania. ;-) I have some very fun ideas about the interaction between Ram and Hel's brother, Tris. Dom Ram is going to teach Dom Tris all about the "grace of the rope"--using Tristan's subs, of course. :-) I'm excited to write about Ram, a beautiful male sub and Angelica.

Since it is a PAK story set on Verdantia, you can be assured of O denial. LOL. Since it is in Akodaenia, the one spot in Verdantia where technology works, we will have funky sex toys imported from around the galaxy. Shall I bring back the nano-botts?

There is one thing you can help with--if you feel like it. I am trying out names for Tristan's lover. I need something manly for a handsome naval captain, but the name must also have a good nickname. What do you think of this one: Magellan Aiolos DeLan. Tris can call him, Mage? I'm open for suggestions. :-)

As for shorts...In my October newsletter, I will be sending out a link to a free "scene" between Ramsey and Steffania. It takes place immediately after the close of Hers To Cherish. Ram "officially" collars Steffania and they break in the ropes she presented him with. :-)

I also have a "scene" between Doral and Ari planned where Doral proves to his Highlord that he is emotionally whole and very much the dominant--so quit treating him like he's some wounded creature, by the Goddess! Again, the link will be offered to my email subscribers for free. I'm planning this for around Thanksgiving.

Phew! Long answer, but that is a glimpse into the future. I'll write as fast as I can. ;-)

Hers To Cherish (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: Who would’ve thought a rogue nobleman and a secret agent tied in shibari knots would be so instrumental in saving a world from sexual slavery. Ramsey desperately needs a pardon. The catch: Win a grueling and bloody gladiator game. His consolation: Elite mercenary, Steffania Rickard, has been ordered to help DeKieran ~ posing as his sexual submissive. When Ramsey DeKieran, disgraced nobleman and accused murderer, is offered a pardon Ram knows there'd be a catch. The High Lord of Verdantia offers him a clean slate in exchange for the off-world rescue of a Verdantian noblewoman ~ a suicide mission that has already cost the lives of good men. The one redeeming feature is the assistance of the stunning captain of Verdantia’s elite mercenary team. For Captain Steffania Rickard, assisting DeKieran in the rescue of a woman critical to the future of Verdantia will be difficult enough. The rogue trips all her triggers ~ good and bad. Infinitely worse, to fit into the culture of Vxloncia, she must pose as Ram's sex slave. The sexually dominant Ramsey is nothing if not perceptive and Steffania doubts her carefully disguised and deeply hidden desires will remain concealed. Their mission takes on new meaning when they unmask a heinous program of enslavement, long cloaked in secrecy. Together they must find a way to overcome their initial animosity and recover a woman vital to the future of their race. Together, they would have to bring a malicious entity to justice. In the maelstrom of sex, savagery, domination and submission, Ram and Steffania will need all their wits and strength to survive.
Hers To Choose (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: Mentally scarred from her years as prisoner to the off-world invaders, Lady Sophillia Glorianna DeLorion, doubts she can be a fit sexual partner for any man – even one whose passionate green eyes make her remember what it is to desire. Commander of the Queen’s Royal Guard, Eric DeStroia had grown up watching the corrosive, soul-killing effects of arranged, aristocratic marriage and vowed to remain alone. But under his hardened military exterior, Eric has a kind heart. When the second Tetriarch suggests he marry a noble woman rescued from the enemy, Eric reconsiders, consoling himself with visions of sheltering a wounded dove under his mighty arm. Instead, he discovers a fierce falcon that refuses to stoop to his lure. In the aftermath of their resounding defeat, a survivor from the enemy camp plotted a return to Verdantia to exact retribution. His first objective is the recapture of Lady Sophillia DeLorion. She had been unreachable until she went to the Oshtesh. Now, only Eric DeStroia stands in his way.
Hers To Command (Romance)
0 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2013 03:38PM
Description: In an intricate dance of friendship, erotic partnership and selfless love, three natives of the sentient planet Verdantia must come together in an extraordinary effort to save their world…and themselves. With the lives of the people of the planet hanging in the balance, Verdantia calls three of her own to restore her power. The impossible but gorgeous Conte Camliel Aristos DeTano, the beautiful, innocent future queen Princess Fleur Constante, and the conte’s loyal aide, the angelically handsome yet emotionally-scarred Visconte Doral DeLorion, must fight their own personal demons and assimilate in a poly relationship, lest their planet be lost. The attraction between the three is palpable and so strong it will either bind them together forever—and restore strength to the energy shield of their planet’s capital—or destroy each of them. What ensues is a passionate journey that explores and tests trust, friendship and the true meaning of love.

“Fleur to Doral:
"My love for you and Ari cannot be measured in words. It can only be measured by what I will do for you. Absolutely anything. By what I want for you. Absolutely everything. I would move Verdantia from her orbit to defend you from all that would hurt you." She rose and crossed to him, sliding into his lap and snuggling into his broad chest. She hugged him fiercely.

"You are mine, Doral, every bit as much as Ari. Those who hurt you do so at their peril.”
Patricia A. Knight, Hers to Command

“Ari to Fleur:
"I made plans for your glorious self."
"Do they require nudity?"
"Extensive. Prolonged."
Fleur's smile was so wide he thought her jaw must hurt.”
Patricia A. Knight, Hers to Command

“She was no helpless female – never had been. She was death clothed in a body of female allure and fiercely proud of it.
But in sex, she needed the surrender. She craved a man strong enough to take the control out of her hands. I hunger to be dominated, for someone who doesn’t see me as a ball-busting female. She would yield everything to a man masterful enough to command her obedience. But she had never found one strong enough – or discreet enough. It wouldn’t do for the Blue Daggers to know their commander wanted domination during sex. Most of all, she had never found anyone she could trust with her desires who didn’t try to crush her – body and soul. Disappointment had followed disappointment until she had quit looking. To find strength paired with sensitivity, or dominance tempered with love? It didn’t seem to exist.”
