I love stories with a "Beauty and the Beast" theme going on! The previous book in the series hinted at Charlotte and Matthew's regard for each other, so I was eagerly anticipating their story, and it did not disappoint. At the beginning of the story they are trying to avoid each other because they know their feelings could not lead to anything. Charlotte is so lovely with his sisters as a mentor and friend, and it was fun to see the different personalities of the girls. Matthew and Charlotte nat ...more

Regina Scott brings us the fifth book in her 'Fortune's Brides' series, Fortune, being the very discerning cat of Miss Meredith Thorn, who runs an employment agency. Miss Charlotte Worthington seeks Miss Thorn's aid in finding a position suitable to her rank as the daughter of a viscount. She is placed in the household of Mr. Matthew Bateman, former bodyguard to Charlotte's brother, also known as the Beast because of his pugilistic prowess. Mr. Matthew Bateman is soon to become elevated to a kni ...more

Never Kneel to a Knight was a delightful story! I enjoyed seeing Charlotte help Matthew and his sisters learn to navigate society. This story could possibly be enjoyed as a stand alone, however, reading the book directly before this novel, Never Vie for a Viscount, would be helpful as Charlotte and Matthew do appear quite frequently in it. This series also has romance that slowly builds throughout each book and centers around Miss Thorn, the owner of the employment agency.

Charlotte was wonderful

A knighted boxer with the heart of a prince

Somehow, in all the movies I've seen and the books I've read, I've always assumed that to be knighted was not only a great honor, it was also a big deal in general. I've never before considered the implications of going from a more "common" background to being elevated into a society that snubs those deemed "unworthy". . .

These are exactly the circumstances Matthew, aka the Beast of Birmingham, finds himself in. You may remember him from Never Vie for a

Charlotte Worthington has sought employment to fill the emptiness in her life. However, she was certainly not expecting Miss Thorn to place her in the household of Matthew Bateman, the man who had been a bodyguard for her brother! She sets herself to the task of making Matthew and his sisters ready for entry into society. Can she trust her heart to the newly made knight?

Every book in this series leads to the next one. At the end of the previous book, we were left with the knowledge that Charlott

This series just keeps getting better & I don’t want it to end.

I loved Charlotte & Matthew & the rest of the family & friends just bring depth & love to the story. I also love the fact that the love story of Meredith & Julian flows through the series and gives the story more

They are both strong but need to believe that love is more important than status

You will not want to miss this story or the rest of the series

HEA at it’s best. Loved it ❤

Quite good

I liked this story very much. The characters have been attracted to each other for a long time and finally get a chance to admit their attraction.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first nove ...more
