Layne Fletcher, the only girl in a family of three boys, has grown up learning to use a sword and joust, but she is not a knight. She and her brothers have been traveling from tourney to tourney to make enough coin to buy their own farm to shelter their ailing father. When her brother is found unconscious, Layne takes his place on the jousting field against…
Griffin Wolfe, the undefeated jousting champion. When he is unhorsed by a slip of a woman who is not a knight, he demands retribution. His honor will not allow him to let a woman be thrown in the dungeon and he has no choice but to pay her fine, ordering her to travel with him until her brothers can repay him. He attempts to educate her in the art of being a woman, but finds he is attracted to her exciting personality and uncommon beauty despite her less then lady like ways.
But someone is trying to sabotage Griffin. Can Layne and Griffin discover who the culprit is while keeping their families safe and their growing attraction secret?
Oh how I just loved this book – with just a few pages in it just zinged for me! I really loved Griffin’s character. He is such a honorable person, definitely one that I would want for my knight in shining armor. Also what I like about the book is how Layne’s relationship with her brothers is portrayed — how they teased her like normal siblings do and that it wasn’t written with old medieval English, not that I mind that in some books, it’s just flows better for me with modern English. I’m so glad that I bought this book and gave it a try, didn’t regret it one bit plus the cover is lovely to look at as well.
