I really need a break from so much stuff but I can't give up on books. I can't and that's a fact. I think that reading is what makes me sane and I can't stop even if I wanted to.
Blair Babylon is one of the many responsibles for this addiction of mine and I make sure to thank her for that.
Her writing is hot and wild, full of meaning and feelings with a touch of drama into the plot. Each book is special and I always want more.
In Shining Armor is her latest release and it's the second book from

Let me give you some idea about how excited I was about this book. I got it on my kindle at 6.45am. I read it on the train to work, during lunch, and whilst on the train on the way home. I then absorbed the rest of this story whilst sat on my sofa.

Sometimes, work just gets in the way of more important things. Things such as reading books like this.

If, like me, you have been eagerly awaiting the telling of Flicka's tale, this book is as essential as breathing.

Overselling? Not to my mind.

I really enjoyed this book, in my opinion this was definitely better than Once Upon a Time. In Shining Armor filled in a lot of backstory on Flicka and Dieter. With Dieter there is still secrets about him I'm sure will come to light in future stories. Blair Babylon kept me on the edge of my seat wondering when Pierre was coming to get Flicka. I believe there is a lot of action to come, I personally can't wait to see where Flicka and Dieter's story goes. ...more

I like the plot which is a bit more complex than one usually sees in romance novels. I like the dialogue and the fully fleshed out characters. I don’t like the explicit sex scenes.

Sometimes when you get to the end of a book it's not a cliffhanger, but it sure as hell feels like one. This is one of those books. I feel wrung out and weak. The love, the depth of emotion shared between Dieter and Flicka is tangible and intense. The history they share is fascinating. It almost seems inevitable that they would fall in love.

At one point Dieter and Flicka have a conversation about men assaulting women, and the excuses that women make to learn to live with this. They discuss how w

Dieter! Swoon!

In Shining Armor is book two of the Runaway Princess series and it picks up where book one left off, the aftermath of Flicka's encounter with her horrible, soon-to-be ex-husband. She awakens hurting all over and it takes her a bit to remember what happened. While Blair Babylon does a pretty good job of recapping some of the things from Once Upon a Time you really need to read it first.

Dieter is working to arrange things so that they can get out of the country; no small feat since F

I cannot get enough of these characters and the complications that are their lives. They become more human with each story this author tells, and become more reachable with each line she writes. This is no less the case with Flicka and Dieter. She has finally escaped the clutches of the Prince who would keep her locked away in his fortress to bear his heirs at whatever cost with the help of her bodyguard and ex-lover, mercenary Dieter Schwarz. But, getting to a place where she is able to divorce ...more

Sir Deiter!

I was sooooo happy when this pre-ordered book popped up for me just after midnight last night. I started reading it immediately & just finished it this morning! I just LOVE Blair Babylon's sexy, exciting & amazing books, I think I've read every one of them. So good!

Flicka was someone I wanted to get to know since 1st read about her in another book, especially since she was the elusive Wulfram's little sister. She had to be interesting, right? Deiter, stalwart bodyguard, was another ch

This is certainly (especially amongst fans) one hotly anticipated second book in the Billionaires In Disguise spin-off series, Runaway Princess.
As in the past and as this book began, I initially found it difficult to connect with Flicka as a character. By the time I had reached the 15-20% mark, Blair was turning my emotions on their head and I began to connect with Flicka. Was this due to her experiences with Pierre, of course but more importantly it was due to Flickas vulnerability as a fellow

What do you find in the muck??? If you are Flicka, a Knight in Shining Armor!

We’ve all made mistakes, done things that we regret, and wish we could do over. Flicka and Dieter are no different than the rest of us. They both have things that they regret, wishing that they could just turn back the clock, and make the “right” decisions.

Flicka is trying to escape from Pierre, who is obsessed with keeping his place in the royal line, and will do anything it takes to try and make sure it happens.

And here we are left hanging again. I hate that the story of Flicka and Dieter is broken into small chunks and not immediately available, I'm just not a patient person and waiting a month between instalments is killing me.
Having said that, this piece of the story is important to understand the relationships between Flicka and Pierre and Dieter. We see that Pierre is an even bigger jerk than what we first thought in previous stories. He is a selfish arse who really only cares about the crown and

This book was a first for me. Normally I get a book and I devour it, reading an entire book in one single sitting. When I first learned that Flicka and Dieter would be getting their stories-- not separately, but falling in love to each other- I was beyond thrilled! I could not imagine partners more perfectly suited for one another than these two. When "In Shining Armor", the second book in the series, was released I vowed that I, for once, would be a different reader. It took me 4 days to read a ...more

Recommends it for: everyone who likes romance. period.
The quest to know it all in the life of the Runaway Princess Bride continues with her knight in shining armor. We get to know a lot more about Dieter in this book, which is wonderful. Because he's every bit the amazing warrior knight we knew him to be, and so much more. But with every tantalizingly sweet new nugget we learn about him comes a haunting skeleton from his past.

While the first book had an almost rom-com feel to it at times, this one has a slightly darker quality. But then, hey. We w

Runaway Princess… Book two of five

The story picks up where book one left off as Dieter scrambles to make plans to get Flicka to Paris. I enjoyed his confrontation with Pierre the morning after Flicka fled. If looks could kill, Pierre would have been incinerated on the spot! We get some insightful backstory for both characters, bridging Flicka’s childhood and teenage years, along with the role Dieter played as her protector, friend and later their time together as lovers.

Holy mackerel! Such action and suspense. I am waiting on pins and needles for the next one.

I have been so excited about Flicka's story and with this next installment of it I was not disappointed. I enjoyed getting the background on her and Dieter's relationship as to how it formed as well as how she ended up with Pierre in the end. I am also intrigued as to see what the story is behind Dieter as well since that part of the story left me hanging!

On the run! Oh, how I loved In Shining Armor, the continuation of Flicka and Dieter’s story. Dieter and Flicka share a love that cannot be denied. Flicka is on the run. Fiercely loyal and protective, Dieter will hide and protect her till the end, even going so far as to lie to his best friend, Wulf. In this installment, Blair has given us the real backstory of the love affair between Flicka and Dieter. Their story is filled with betrayal, danger, intrigue, fear and love.

I received an ARC of this book for review. It gives a lot of the background of Dieter and Flicka. We finally learn more about them both, just enough to want to know more. Dieter helps Flicka get through some of the trauma from being raped by her new husband while also helping her to hide away from the 'rat bastard'. New characters are introduced, to make the story more mysterious, and we have to wait for the next book to resolve some of the mystery. We also find out a bit more about Blair!s pers ...more
