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 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.
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...
