Lucien ~ ‘’We have good food and drink, a supply of firewood, and you’re naked. I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be.’’
This read is nothing less than a little diamond. We all know it doesn’t need to be a huge rock to be of the highest quality. Well, this one is extremely well cut and twinkles throughout! Imagine Christmas Eve… wining, dining, and then slipping on a sexy negligee or something even more daring! Lucien threw down the gauntlet to his woman, she was game and took him up on it. His choice of dress code just happened to be… No, we’re not going to let one as we want you to use your imagination. And since we’re sure all you fans of this desirable, sex-on-legs, drop-dead gorgeous hunk of a Viking isn’t capable of doing things by half, the only thing to do read it. Better still, whispering the amorous passages from this novella to your better half will undoubtedly set the mood for guaranteed passion. We highly recommend you read this with a glass of bubbly in one hand and your Kindle in the other before the Christmas chaos kicks in to get the true festive ‘feels’ of this book!
This couple we have both learnt to love are spending the Christmas holidays in Lucien’s cabin in Norway. Their surroundings are outstandingly beautiful, so perfectly described. The author made it easy for us to envisage the warmth, decoration and Noel spirit, and we never expected anything less from her. Simply splendid. Two people who are head of heels in love with each other were at their very best.
Lucien ~ ‘’Tell me you’ll be my filthy Christmas angel.’’
Sophie ~ ‘’I will.’’
Sophie, always ready to please her husband, unintentionally opens up Pandora’s Box. How he faces his deeply buried feelings was going to be an emotional sleigh ride for the reader. Saying that, we didn’t have to wait for scenes making us blush in all the right places and apart from that, other feeling we had could not possibly be written in a review. To understand how we felt about this novella, one should read our messages.
Rachel ~ “Festive porn!”
Sharon ~ “Lol, I said to you that it was. I need more!”
Rachel ~ “You greedy girl!”
The messages just kept on coming and going! The trouble with this book is it left us wanting more! How we have missed him. But what an amazing Christmas present from one of our favourite authors.
Lucien ~ ‘’Now. I seem to remember being taught always to show rather than tell as a child. So stand up, bend over, and show me, Sophie.’’
We can’t deny that the scorchingly hot moments are in abundance. At times we almost felt like voyeurs as the scenes Ms French wrote were nothing short of magnificent, sensual and erotic! Wow, I think Ms French owes us both a new Kindles as the heat they both generated made them short circuit but then again, we are reading what Mr Knight is capable of doing with his hands! What do you buy the man who has everything? The Christmas present. Sophie thought hard about what would please her man. But she hit the nail on the head! We can’t tell you what she’d gifted him as it would spoil the surprise but it was wonderful and very fitting to the story. It also brought back very happy memories for Lucien from his childhood which in turn, brought about an influx feelings both welcome and unwelcome. Sophie has always had a knack of getting through to Lucien and again, she handles the situation with sensitivity and kindness.
Sophie ~ ‘’……You’re better, sexier, kinder. You’re more, Lucien. You’re more in every last way.’’
This novella could actually be read as a standalone for anyone who hasn’t read the Knight Trilogy books as it’s not confusing; however, you’d understand the essence of how Lucien ticks, and why only one woman won his heart if this was read after ‘Knight & Play and ‘Knight & Stay’. His generosity towards her and her total devotion is nothing short of exquisite. The author’s emphatic writing style captures these sentiments in plentitude. Once again Ms French, you have delighted us with a great read and a little more Lucien which for us, can only be a good thing! Bravo.

LOVE…sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. And sometimes it’s dangerous.
Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, is sure of one of thing. She should never fully trust someone who has secrets. Especially when said bad boy is the sexiest man walking on earth. She is running away and has no intention of ever returning to him. But when a friend is killed and the one man she thought she would never meet again is accused of murder, she knows the story doesn’t add up.
Dangerously sexy and arrogant millionaire Jett Mayfield knows his secrets are not doing him any favors. However, when they serve to save Brooke’s life, he has no intention of revealing them. When problems spiral out of control and his life is turned upside down, he knows he needs her more than ever. He needs her more than he knows. But will he be strong enough to do what needs to be done?
In a world where truth shatters and danger is closing in on them, where love is their only sanctuary, will they be able to find each other or is it time to let each other go?
Kindle Friends Forever 4.5 ★ Review by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall
What a finale to an absolutely marvellous series. Saying that, the author’s storytelling technique had a way of making this reader suffer to the point of thinking about doing the unheard of; throwing her Kindle against the wall! An intriguing plot full of suspense and twist and turns had me sitting on the edge and is exactly my cup of tea. In essence, the author has outdone herself brilliantly regarding the flow between the books. How did she do it? Snippets from the past were cannily added to the storyline helping us remember details which one could have forgotten. Up until now, the leading man’s modus operandi had me asking a lot of questions. I needed answers to the whys and wherefores of his acts and even though I had suspected that he had something up his sleeve in the last book, I wasn’t going to find out what it was at the drop of a hat. Oh boy, does Jett Mayfield come back in full force!
Firstly, The Lover’s Promise was told from Brooke Stewart’s point of view and I must say made me eager to find out why Jett left the love of his life with such a weak excuse because neither Brook nor I had any idea. Regardless of him annoying the pants off me, discovering what really made him tick was an absolute joy. Now he’s given the chance to tell his side of the story which I liked immensely. I’d been on Brookes’ team throughout; however, in this book my connection with Jett was just a matter of on what line should I sign and can’t wait for you to deliver Jett! I had no doubt whatsoever that he would get his act together. Well-knowing Brooke was in danger would mean he’d have to fight with an open heart and for once in his life, be honest. Secretive by nature, how he’s going to delegate the goings on in his personal life became a real dilemma. Always controlling, now he has to have faith in the loyalty and expertise of a friend, and for me, made him bigger than life. Past mistakes weigh heavily, time is running out, and the odds of him bringing down his and Brooke’s enemy is complicated. Complicated being the optimum word.
Jett ~ “It is still my responsibility to protect you, whether you want it or not.”
Brooke has a habit of shying away from problems as we all know from the previous book. But that doesn’t mean that she’s not prepared to look for solutions to move on without Jett in her life. When she discovers her friend meets with the worst, her coping mechanism kicks in and we see a stronger Brooke.
Kenny ~ “She’s a lot stronger than you give her credit for bro.”
I thought she was very brave in parts of the story and was convinced that her reasons for being so generously forgiving was nothing less than true love. And Jett knows this. By giving more of himself, there’s a chance they can build a future together. Tender, compassionate moments touched my heart making a tear or two fall. Does he deserve her after everything they’d been through you?You’ll only find out by reading their story.
Jett ~ “But I’m not that same man anymore, Brooke. The player in me is gone. For what’s it’s worth, meeting you changed me. You made me a better man.”
Whether the secondary characters are the goodies or the baddies, they are all well-developed. I couldn’t help but like Brooke’s bestie who had her back at all times, and is honest about her feeling towards Jett. I love a read when the protagonists’ opinions are told from both sides, too. Banter is of utmost importance and this last book abounds with brilliant one-liners and overflows with emotion. Watching them, because I did feel like I was, strive to find their happy medium was an unforgettable journey of hope and everything one would expect in a story of this calibre. This series hasn’t been an easy ride for the reader, either. Left on tenterhooks in The Lover’s Promise, there are more nail-biting moments of tension than in this last instalment. Bedroom scenes explicitly illustrated which I considered a plus, were scorching hot and an extremely satisfying epilogue leaves me with no option but to say bravo to you Ms Reed.
