Tempting the Knight by Heidi Rice

Book Blurb:

Once upon a time, poor little rich girl Zelda Madison wanted someone to love her, until she discovered being a badass was much more fun.

Ten years after getting kicked out of convent school and torn away from her three best friends, Zelda has worked hard to clean up her act, but her wild streak has never been completely tamed and — one midnight swim on Manhattan Beach later — she’s suddenly in urgent need of a knight in shining armor…

Hard-working legal aid attorney Tyrone Sullivan is the last guy she should call. Not only does he hold a grudge when it comes to Zelda leading his little sister astray all those years ago, he’s also supremely pissed about having to rescue a runaway supermodel from a Brooklyn police station at two am. But when Ty reluctantly agrees to bust Zel out of her ivory tower and let her hide out on his house barge for a few days, she shows him the wild side he didn’t know he had.

Zel discovers there’s nothing hotter than tarnishing a good guy’s armor… Until he starts to steal her bad girl’s battered heart…

My Review:

Tempting The Knight is a fast paced, smoothly written romance with hints of fairy tales...

I really felt for Zelda, the heart aches she's had, the loneliness she's suffered, and the trials she still faces.  Zelda puts on a good act, but underneath is someone I really came to care for.  Ty is not your typical knight in shining armour!  He's definitely not enamoured with Zelda...right?  The lust is there, but the bad girl he sees in Zelda is not what he's looking for.  I enjoyed watching these two get to know each other better, and their characters really grew in Tempting The Knight. Things are hot between them, and neither of them expect the connection they feel.  Despite the rules, some things might be meant to be if either of them can give it a try...

I liked the secondary characters, and seeing Zelda's friends through her eyes.  I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Modern, with realistic feelings and believable characters, I'd recommend Tempting The Night to any romance reader.

4/5 stars
