There's only one thing in life Lucien Knight really hates, and that's husbands who cheat on their wives.

There's only one problem in Sophie Black's life. Her cheating husband...

From the moment Lucien & Sophie meet, the seal is set.

Romantic, emotional & intensely erotic, Knight and Play is the perfect read for lovers of international bestsellers Fifty Shades & Bared To You. Let yourself be swept away by Part One of the Knight series from Kitty French, a romance so hot it'll burn your fingers...

CEO of Knight Inc. Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice. No one until Sophie Black, that is...

From the moment girl-next-door Sophie accepts the job as Lucien Knight's PA, she understands how Alice must have felt when she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Lucien takes her safe, vanilla life away and plunges her head first into a huge dish of fantasy flavours. Rich, spicy chocolate covered with dark, oozingly lickable sauce? Check. Tutti-frutti with indecently red, glistening cherries on the top? Yes please.

Lucien strips away all of Sophie's inhibitions, and when he instructs her to select three new toys, she soon realises he has more than a game of Monopoly on his mind... 

He's opened the door to a whole new pleasure packed world without limits, and Sophie is utterly intoxicated. But how far is she willing to go? And what happens when she has to step back into reality again?

Lucien & Sophie's is a story of star crossed love and forbidden passion, a sexual odyssey that spans the globe and changes both of their lives forever. Let it change yours, too.

Knight 3

Amazon Worldwide

Kara Brookes hates liars.

Dylan Day hasn’t told the truth from the moment his plane touched down in Ibiza.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

Lucien and Sophie are back, and have set up camp on the sun-drenched isle of Ibiza for the opening of the latest of Lucien’s strictly adult clubs.

They’re joined for the summer by Sophie’s best friend Kara, and Dylan Day, Lucien’s newly appointed club manager. The laid back, smokin’ hot surf guy from California seems almost too good to be true… but there’s no smoke without fire. It’s going to be a long hot summer of love, lust, lies and wedding bells. But who will get their happy ever after?

Romantic, emotional and intensely erotic, Knight & Day is the thrilling final installment of the USA Today bestselling Knight Series from Kitty French.

ARC received for an honest review

He's back!  My favourite viking is back!  Ahhh, how I have missed you Lucien Knight!
Ok, now that I have that out of the way, probably should say that in Knight and Day, Lucien and Sophie are NOT the main characters, but they still play a big part in the story, which is set a few years after Knight and Stay finished

Kara, Sophie's best friend, was left at the altar by her cheating fianc`.  Needless to say, she has trust issues now, and the one thing she cannot abide - liars.

Dylan Day has left the USA and hiding from someone or something.  Everything about him in Ibiza is a lie. 
 After a chance meeting with Lucien, Dylan is brought into Lucien and Sophie's inner circle, where he is thrown into contact with Kara.

I loved the attraction between Dylan and Kara.  You could cut the sexual tension between them with a knife it is so thick!  I enjoyed their banter and interactions, trying to deny what they both want to happen.

Of course, this book as well as the first two is set around the sex club scene, so of course, there is lots of smoking hot sex **fans herself**.

Kara is so hurt by her fianc`s betrayal, and you could not blame her for being gunshy.  I laughed with her, I cried with her, my heart ached for her.  She is so strong on the outside, so broken on the inside

I could understand why Dylan did what he did, but at the same time I wanted to shake him, slap him, tell him to do what he has to do to do right by Kara.

Will Dylan tell the truth?  Can/will Kara listen and forgive him?  Can they have what they both want, their own HEA?  Or will their pasts be too much for them to overcome and move forward.

Or will their pasts become present and cause their own problems???

For that you are going to have to read for yourself!

I still totally adore Lucien and Sophie.  Lucien's unlikely friendship with Dylan had me smiling. Two such different people who you would never expect to become such firm friends so quickly.

Oh, just saying that there might be one of these on the cards too...but who does it belong to???
Although I did not feel that the Knight Trilogy needed to continue (I thought the ending of K & S was perfect), I would not have missed finding out what was happening with Lucien and Sophie for the world!  Knight and Day could have been a stand alone/companion to the Knight's story.

But thank you Kitty French for giving me more of my viking god!
