I received this book as a birthday present a few years ago and I finally decided to read it. It was just that, a free book. Nothing exciting or thought-provoking. The characters were very one-dimensional. I was bored throughout the book. I'm glad it's now over. I won't remember it later, I'm betting.

I chose this book to read because I really enjoyed the first in the series. But I must add that I toughly enjoy reading of Scottish and Irish lore! I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys the same.
Paranormal Romance
Fleeing from a man who wants to rape her before marriage to ensure a crown, the heroine sees no other escape than to run strength into a war zone. The hero, a Templar knight, leads his severely outmatch and unnumbered men against the Moors but soon the battle turns for the worst and he watches all of his men die. He also spots a female rush onto the killing field and doesn't hesitate to rescue her and take her from the carnage. But in the process, he feels like a coward and also takes a shot to ...more

I just started reading it based on a friends suggestion. I'll admit that I was almost put off thinking it was only a romance, there are romance elements in the book though. I'm rather pleasantly surprised as there is a lot of action and adventure in this book that is set in the 14th century. I want the one that she was betrothed to against her will to die painfully and slowly. He so richly deserves it, he's so revolting, crude and abusive that he can really be called a bastard. I've never hated ...more

Kindle Free, SEDUCING THE KNIGHT by Gerri Russell. Loved the forbidden passion, vulnerabilities, and the author's interpretation of the arc of the covenant. I read the 2nd book first, and although it stands on its own, I wanted a little more history and scenery. Then I read the 1st book in the series TO TEMPT A KNIGHT and got the history and scenery I was looking for. I recommend reading them in order.

It started out really interesting and I even thought for a moment that it was a Christian book since it was a quest for the Ark of the Covenant. However, it wasn't and there were just too many parts that I couldn't agree with Spiritually, physically and emotionally to give it a high rating.
The writing was well done.

This story had me hooked from the beginning to the end. It was deeper than your average romance. A lot research must have gone into this. The quest for the 'Ark of the Covenant' added to the intrigue and brought out the true nature of the main characters. Also very well written and developed. Well done.

This book was good but kind of weird??? I have issues with a book on Templars and virgins and the Ark of the Convenant also dealing with premarital sex not once but over and over again? The writing was well done, but it was long and I just couldn't put my head around all those topics in one story...

Excitingly historic romance

Having enjoyed several Templar novels, I like the romantic link between Alan and Jessamine. The search for the Ark and linking the prophesy was a good touch in bringing the story substance.

While I am not really a fan of the romance genre, this book made me want to keep reading. What brought me in was the unique plot line about the main couple searching for the Ark of theCovenant, which takes you on a journey over three continents.

despite the predictableness like most romance novels, the story is rather engaging and very well written. This book actually flows a lot better than her first book. Well worth a read.
The kindle version is free today.

I enjoyed reading this book about the Ark. It was well written and an interesting possibility of what happened to the Ark.

Definitely worth the read. I’m all about relationships and the one between Alan and Jessamine is a powerful force.

Not very believable. The ending was dragged out to the point that I felt as if it would never end.

Well written but a little bit corny. A little bit of mysticism that was just a little too out-there for me.

The plot is very good. My problem is the sex scenes are too formulaic.

Good reading

This storyline is readable and the book is not a cliff hanger . The pages keep the reader wanting to hurry and turn turn to next adventure.

There's more than a few moments of incredulity in this star-crossed lovers meets Indiana Jones tale. A fun read for those willing to take the ride for what it is.

Not bad but not great. Good quick little read. Kept me interested.

WIll not be reading it again. Enjoyed the action and some of the romance, but a few scenes I had to skip.
