One Knight’s Stand by Brooklynn Rivers

4*

Rowena’s father was an easily tempted man and couldn’t resist a wager. In a moment of weakness he used his daughters hand in marriage as his stake and lost. Rowena was not happy. The man she was being forced to marry was Lord Dreogan, an evil leader who was cruel to his minions. Having to travel for two days to her wedding venue, Rowena’s childhood friend Eadric; now a well battled knight, was to be her escort to ensure her safe delivery to the Lord.

One Knight’s stand is a short story, we have a maiden in distress and a Knight in shining armour who comes to her rescue. The ‘love’ scenes are very tastefully written without the use of vulgar or crass words which is a refreshing change! The plot is simple, uncomplicated and quite predictable but is an easy and quick read for those with a romantic heart. The character development is suitable for the stories length and the story is complete within itself not leaving the reader with the ‘I need more’ feeling. I enjoyed it.

Very good! Surprisingly modern at times, which is quite enjoyable! No weird medieval language that would detract from the story. Steamy scenes and true love with swordfighting and a touch of paranormal.

Review by: A C on June 04, 2012 :
What would you do if your weak father had made a drunk wager on you, his only daughter?
What would you do if, because of the wager, you had to marry a man you had seen only once, a man you don't like, a man not even slightly attractive, a man with a frightening and diabolical aura, a man who is simply not meant for you?
What would you do if your long-lost-but-never-forgotten childhood secret love were to be the one to escort you to your unwanted betrothed?
Wouldn't you jump at the chance to experience just once in your life the pleasures of the flesh? Maybe you would, but what about Rowena?

Lady Rowena has been born at a time where women are mere pawns in a game only played by men and where women always lose, well maybe not this time ...

Brooklynn Rivers offers us here a dramatic and exhilarating short story where no word is wasted. Her very lively descriptions take us effortlessly into a world of dark magic inhabited by unspeakable creatures.

She managed to create a wonderful and intriguing tale in One Knight's Stand that is filled with passion and danger and brilliantly combined with some very exciting paranormal elements. Rowena and Eadric are childhood friends who grow to love one another but never say it aloud. And then it is too late: Eadric leaves for the Crusades to make a name for himself, intending to return home one day and marry Rowena. However years later, he returns home only to find Rowena is betrothed to another. While she felt deserted when he went off to fight in the Crusades, Eadric feels a different kind of desertion upon return—the loss of her affection. The two main characters are indeed meant for each other and the fact that they have this past that has inexorably tied them to one another makes for an achingly sweet story where the reader wonders if things can ever be set right for them. Their past gives the story enough depth and credibility to make it work completely.

Despite the quality of it, I cannot help but wish it were longer. It's the second book I've read, the first one "The Road to Dark Desire" was perfect and I have to confess that Ms. Rivers has become one of my favorite. I'm looking forward to reading her next book. For now, I give this exciting tale 4/5.
