She cannot see me, but she can hear me; and that is all I’ll need to make her fall in love... with me.

Everything I’ve ever needed, is right here in my Paradise, including the whining brats I led away from their parents eons ago with my magical flute; but when that sorceress, Celeste Dubois, shows up and suggests that things need to change - that I need to change, I know sh

In Pied, the Pied Piper has a name, Patrick Piper. He seems to have it all, a cloaked magical kingdom, servants who wait on him night and day for centuries. Those servants being the children he led away from Hamlin for lack of payment for his services. A man should be paid for his work,right? I would be mistrustful of people too, if I was promised payment and then denied. However, taking the children as payment, hmm that was villainous and a low blow. Oh and get this, he hates kids! I would have ...more

An interesting book. I loved the premise that perhaps the villains of stories we grew up with aren't evil so much as having been pushed into evil acts, and as such are capable of redemption. I would like to check out other books in this series.

That said this one had moments I needed to put the book down and read a few chapters of another book cuz the characters were driving me crazy. Even by the third quarter of the story, Patrick was still an angry selfish jerk in many ways and those around hi

The Pied Piper as a romantic hero? An original and risky idea, but Brooklyn Knight pulled it off.

Patrick Piper is quite a character. He is obnoxious as hell, condescending and rude, as only 13th century nobility can be. His over the top inner monologue about 'fickin peasants' and the movements of his 'schwanz' kept me chuckling all the way. When he meets Melodie Harper, he knows right away that he needs to have her. Since Patrick is used to getting what he wants, the meet-cute is nothing short

Nothing like a retelling that's takes a villain and gives their tale a new spin. Patrick is self absorbed and arrogant, going with his life playing the flue and luring away children. One day things change and he realizes there's something he wants more, Melodie. This story bring two people into a fluid story including romance, learning, and growing. Looking forward to what the next tale in this series brings.

Patrick is exactly what I would love to have as a man in my life! Mysterious, romantic, musical(of course lol) yet mischievous. I find it funny her son knows him from somewhere yet can not quite place it. Erotic yet HEA story is a must read!!

Brooklyn Knight's retelling of an old folklore was amazing and well written. The story of Patrick and Melodie was one of love and redemption. Ms. Knight has a unique way of telling her stories. I can't wait for her upcoming releases. Awesome book and would highly recommend Pied to readers.

I enjoyed this tale an the pied piper melody didn’t give him a fair chance but glad RAF made her see the error of her thinking and she was able to get past the tale and go after him I wonder if there will be more tales to come

Are all worthy of a second chance?

I often ponder this. Is there enough room in our hearts to look deeper. Have understanding of why? Can even the thief of children be redeemed? The answer truly lies in them. Can they learn from their mistakes? Can they grow and change?

I loved this read! It is a new spin on an old tale. I didn't want the story to end. Great plot, character interaction and romance. Patrick and Melodie are great together once they get over a few humps along the way.

Pied Piper

I love this retelling of this story! This is a fairytale for adults! I love how the main character was able to show how talented he is instead of focusing on what he originally did to the children of the town’s people.

I have never read a book from Brooklyn Knight nor do I read this genre yet Im glad I took the chance to read something different for a reading challenge. At first I wasn't sure what genre to classify this book as yet paranormal romance is what I took it for. Step out of my comfort zone. Melodie and Patrick were a couple who seemed to be in love. I have to admit it didn't hold my attention, yet it was written well. Brooklyn has a good writing technique where the words pull you in so for that reas ...more

Loved it

Loved this book. Who knew that The Pied Piper could be so mesmerizing. Patrick Piper was misunderstood from the beginning. He was abused by his parents and the towns people. Since they couldn’t/wouldn’t pay him he took their
children by playing his magical flute. Hundreds of years later he was granted a do-over against his wishes and found love and forgiveness in New York with Melodie. You are going to love this book. It puts a spin on what a villain is.
