Knight and Stay * Kitty French

Knight and Stay by Kitty French 

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? 

After walking out on her husband and leaving her job at Knight Inc, Sophie Black is at a loss for words. Slumming on the couch at her best friends Kate, Sophie decides she needs to get a hold of herself, meaning no more weeks spent on the couch eating ice-cream and drinking wine. So with her head down and her tail between her legs she returns to her old job at the building firm in the small cramped office with her leech of a boss. And with Dan returning to her bed with his tail between his legs, could anything else go wrong in Sophie's life? 

Lucien can't function straight, to be quite honest, he misses Sophie Black more than anything. He doesn't know what it is about her, but she has him by the balls and the heart and he can't do anything about her. It's not her beautiful curves, or her hot body, it's her face, her heart and her personality, that his mind, heart and manhood have gotten him into trouble. 

But when Ms. Black said the three words that some men don't want to hear, can he put those words behind him and get on with his life.

So when he told Sophie that she could no longer work for him for a second time round, it was a blow for Sophie and a gut turning mistake for him. But when his father is taken to hospital for a turn for the worst, he must put Sophie and everything else behind him in order to make peace with his father, if he can do that. 

Sophie soon finds out that Lucien is back in Norway on a trip to visit his father, and without a second glance she has packed her bags and on the first plane out of London and to Norway to visit the man she loves. 

Soon Sophie and Lucien are reunited, but under different circumstances, one that they both can agree on is the best option for them. They will have to get to grips with each other again, but they don't have to get to grips with each others bodies again. 

Though when things are once heated up again will Lucien push Sophie away for the third time? Or will he love her back? 

Knight and Stay by Kitty French, is the last instalment of the Knight series by Kitty French and I must say that I am quite saddened by this. After finding an erotic series that I quite liked, I would of loved for the story to follow on a bit longer rather than two books. However, the two books that have been written about Sophie and Lucien's relationship were great and I really enjoyed them. 

I loved Sophie and Lucien's characters hugely, I thought they had a great background behind them, more so of Lucien's. I really liked this as I started reading Fifty Shades of Grey and just felt that there was no story line to it, I admit that I didn't read very much into it, but what I have gathered from people telling me about it, is that it is mostly sex. 

Yes, the Knight series did have quite a lot of sex in it, but it did have a good storyline to also follow as well as the erotic features. In some ways, even though that the book is an erotic novel, I find it did have more of a plot to it than sex, which in someway's I also enjoyed.  

I love Sophie and Lucien so much and wished they we're making a film about them instead of FSOG as I feel it would be a much better plot to watch than FSOG.I just loved how they we're with each other, how that Lucien acts all strong but cares for her so much and just wants to protect her all the time and to show her just how beautiful she really is, which I thought was just beautiful. 
How he changes towards the end is lovely. 

The ending of the book is great, although as I have stated I do wish there we're more books coming. There is a third one, but it is loosely based around Sophie and Lucien and more around Kate and her lover, which I soon shall be reading and doing a review of. 

I will give this book 8 out of 10

  1. Dear Tink,

    Will you please consider reviewing my new novel DON’T FORGET ME, BRO (Stephen F. Austin State University Press and Texas Book Consortium, Dec. 2014-Jan.2015).

    My novel tackles themes of childhood abuse, mental illness, and alienated families--and leaves the reader uplifted!

    Kirkus Reviews says: "Read this book for the vivid imagery and sharp dialogue. Read it for the spot-on characterizations..."

    The subject matter is never treated frivolously or over-handled in details. The writing is taut and compelling throughout. The pace leans forward tirelessly.

    Those accomplishments alone took years.

    In all, five of my thirty years of writing were dedicated to this novel. I like to joke: I had to pull my soul sideways through a keyhole for those five years to get the right words down.

    My debut novel, THE NIGHT I FREED JOHN BROWN (Penguin Group, 2008), won The Paterson Prize for Books for Young Readers (Grades 7-12) and was one of ten books recommended by USA TODAY for Black History Month. For more info:

    My 2011 short story collection, UGLY TO START WITH (West Virginia
    University Press), was hailed by The Philadelphia Inquirer as a work of “sharp observation and surpassing grace.” Here’s a link to some information about my collection:

    My short stories have appeared in more than seventy-five literary
    journals, including The Iowa Review, North American Review, The Kenyon Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, and The Chattahoochee Review. Twice I have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize. My short story "The Scratchboard Project" received an honorable mention in The Best American Short Stories 2007.

    But DON'T FORGET ME, BRO is my best!

    The novel is a fictionalized story of my brother. Joe died at 47 of system-wide neglect and indifference for the so-called mentally ill in my, until recently, extremely backward home state of West Virginia.

    I know thousands of lives are lost every day around the world. True, Joe was just one. But in this novel, you will see him live and die not once, but a thousand times in the minutes of his life.

    If you email me at, I'll send you the cover graphic for my novel. Then, please take a look at the image. You will see in Joe's innocent, dead-on eyes at 19.

    I'll also email you a new digital .pdf of my novel from the publisher. It's a clear, bold text.

    I promise you that DON'T FORGET ME, BRO is not too grim. I am
    sensitive to the reader's well-being and tolerance.

    Cleanly written and briskly plotted, DON'T FORGET ME, BRO is a quick, fabulous read, a literary page-turner. Never before in my career could I say this about my work. So I say so now with a truth I can all but guarantee.

    I hope I don't sound arrogant. I am just very happy and confident.

    To give you a bigger picture of my novel, I'll even email you a full advance review by Pauline Finch of, along with a list of authors who've blurbed my novel so far and what they have said.

    I would very grateful and honored if you were to review my new novel.

    Again, my email is

    My phone number is (304) 620-8747.

    In respect and gratitude for your work,

    and warmly,

    John Michael Cummings
