by Catherine Kean (author)

https://www.amazon.com/Knights-Reward-Bo...

Posted: May 07, 2019


When Gisela Anne Balewyne comes face to face with handsome knight Dominic de Terre, she fears her dangerous secrets have caught up with her. The small town of Clovebury seemed the perfect place to hide from her abusive husband, raise her young son, and earn a living as a tailor while she saved to move north and start a new life. Seeing Dominic—the lord she loved and then lost when he went on crusade—renews her desire for him, but she can never be with him again, and not just because she's a commoner and he's a nobleman. Loving him would mean risking too much, including his life.

Dominic is on a crucial mission for Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau: to find out who stole de Lanceau's cloth shipment, worth a fortune. Dominic is stunned to see Gisela, the only woman he's ever loved. She's changed, though, from the passionate, sensual woman he knew. He vows not only to succeed in his mission, but to win her heart forever—goals that endanger them all, especially when Dominic learns she's been hired to sew clothes from some of the stolen silks.

As he unravels her shocking secrets and learns the truth about her little boy, he could lose all that's dear to him—or win a knight's greatest reward.

Will a virgin captive surrender to this pirate's sinful touch? "[L]oads of very hot dirty sex in which Nathaniel is a very willing participant.... Just as their relationship is developing, the action kicks in with battles at sea, treachery, daring rescues, heroic actions, and suffice it to say that your swash will be thoroughly buckled, and your timbers definitely shivered!" ~ Gay Book Reviews Nathaniel Bainbridge is used to hiding, whether it's concealing his struggles with reading or his forbidden desire for men. Under the thumb of his controlling father, the governor of Primrose Isle, he's sailing to the fledging colony, where he'll surrender to a respectable marriage for his family's financial gain.

Yet as days pass in close quarters, Nathaniel's feisty spirit and alluring innocence beguile and bewitch. Although Hawk knows he must keep his distance, the desire to teach Nathaniel the pleasure men can share grows uncontrollable. It's not as though Hawk would ever feel anything for him besides lust… Nathaniel realizes the fearsome Sea Hawk's reputation is largely invented, and he sees the lonely man beneath the myth, willingly surrendering to his captor body and soul.
