knight and stay.


Sophie black has turned her back on both her cheating husband and her sexy, enigmatic boss Lucien Knight. When she hits rock bottom, she finds herself drawn back into Lucien’s glamorous no strings, high stakes world of intensely erotic encounters.

Bold and beautiful, Lucien is a walking, talking Viking sex god-the ultimate rebound guy. His is a seductive world of pleasure without limits or commitment, but can Sophie’s already bruised heart survive his strictly no ties rule?

When her husband returns with his tail between his legs, Sophie is faced with the toughest decision of her life. How does she choose between the man she vowed to love forever and the man who she hadn´t planned on loving at all?

Knight & Stay is a star-crossed romantic adventure that spans the globe from Paris to the glittering artic northern lights, a sexual odyssey of love and lust that changes the lives of everyone involved forever

Knight & Stay collage

Review by Jenny & Gitte

Gitte:  So I enjoyed book #1 Knight & Play….but I loved Knight & Stay even more.  The issues I had with the previous book were null and void in this one. It was great, the storyline was that much more detailed and substantial, the emotion was intense and the characters really came into their own, we were given an in-depth look into who they really were behind the façade, especially Lucien. This one starts off exactly where we left of…as it were…dangling over that cliffy! We were picked straight up again and thrown into the thick of it.

The balance between the hot and passionate scenes and the storyline was bang on this time and wow the journey we took with Sophie as we really got to understand Lucien, the real man behind those concrete boulders he surrounded himself by, was emotional and intense. We discovered that besides being a gorgeous dirty talking Viking; Lucien was a broken soul; he’d lost someone under tragic circumstances setting himself up to guard his heart and that of another as a consequence. This man is heartbreakingly gorgeous, not only on the outside but on the inside too.

And sweet, strong and confident Sophie came into her own, we got to really see what this woman was made of. I loved her, she really took a chance and fought for what she wanted, completely aware and able to understand and see what Lucien was so adamant to hide.

Oh and I have to mention that I will never look at a champagne bottle in the same way again. Fancy a bottle Jenny?

Jenny: Oh my goodness Gitte…I think I will be hot and bothered any time I take a sip of champagne from now on…and it won’t be from the bubbles!  I couldn’t agree more about Knight & Stay and thought the author really did nail it – the balance just right – the emotion, passion and sex were balanced perfectly in this one and I was able to really get inside these characters and delve so much more in K&S than the previous book.

Lucien was a revelation. He certainly did have a soul and it was owned by Sophie, though this man was going to fight it every step of the way and guard Sophie’s heart as well as his own.  Convincing himself what they had was lust and it wouldn’t last. But underneath that lay a very different Lucien. There were so many layers to this man and to see him peel them away with Sophie’s help was enthralling and moving.

“He’d done it again. Blinsided her with his contradictions: Once minute the lustful Viking and the next her romantic hero”

As much as Sophie was still under Lucien’s spell, as much as he made her want him she was very much a more confident woman, in touch with her needs and her wants this time around.

Gitte: Lucien is so protective over Sophie despite him insisting that what they have can never lead anywhere, well anywhere serious and long term.  He reminds Sophie that she always have choices, she is ultimately in charge of who or what she wants. Lucien thought Sophie to be brave with guts and gumption and I agree wholeheartedly.

“Sophie Black. You fucking amaze me.” – Lucien

Sophie shone in this story, Lucien’s convictions on love and relationships beat her down every step of the way and a lesser woman would have surely given up. She had her own demons to contend with.

“Love is a temporary insanity curable by marriage, as they say. It fucks people up.”  – Lucien

“So you do believe in love?” – Sophie

“Only when it comes to your tits.” Lucien

Lucien…seriously, this man had me at…well let’s just say that when he is not making this fellow Viking swoon, he makes me clench, cry and laugh out loud. I think he is pretty damn perfect…perfect in his imperfections.

“This is like pass the fucking parcel. Tell me this is the last one?” – Lucien

Sadly, yes, yes it is and I will miss Lucien and Sophie but the epilogue rocked and I thought Kitty French did them proud! We’ll always have Paris …as they say.

Jenny:  Haha! Loved the tits joke. He cracked me up every time with that one! Sophie certainly did come into her own in this story. She was the strength that would push through Lucien’s barriers.  Although broken and feeling beaten herself she would find the inner strength to show this man what they could be, if only he would open his heart and believe trust in her, trust in love.

The sex between these two really does sizzle and yes Gitte, this enigmatic, sexy, passionate, possessive Viking really does make for a panty dropping hero that’s for sure.

“Tonight she was his, and he was hers, and there were no taboos”

This story completely won me over. Sharing the journey with these two damaged souls, witnessing them fight their pasts and fight each other was pure indulgence. Sophie with her stoic belief and persistence in trusting this man with his heart and in the process showing Lucien how to trust with his really did move me. The sex scenes were beyond hot and the chemistry between them was in stratospheric proportions.  The author did an amazing job of giving us an epilogue that would satisfy us and have us swooning – seriously….I think I sighed loudly over this one. 

“I’m not done with you yet,” he said. “There’s a whole lot more still out there for us, if we want it”

I wish!  I will miss these two. Bravo Kitty French! You brought this series home and as Gitte said, you did us and your characters proud.

Gitte: 4 Stars
Jenny: 4 Stars

Why can’t you? He’d thrown that bomb into her world. Why can’t you have what you want? Why can’t you be who you want to be? Why can’t you? With them she finally could. And she was going to be so very good at it.’

GREEN JEWEL (The Painted Daisies #2) by LJ EVANS

‘Heartache and sorrow hung over her so deep it bled through every vein.’


“Princess, when I love someone, it’s with my soul. It’s a full commitment. It’s a relationship that will grow, evolve, and change to fit us. I won’t ever stop trying to be the best man I can be. I won’t give up on us, through thick and thin.”


“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’
