Anne Kendall may only be a ladies maid
but she has the heart and soul of an adventurer. She is
hoping to use these traits to help her win a position with the
League of the Blade. She is currently working undercover with
them, to try and help a noble woman secretly travel to see
King Henry so that she can let her know about a plot to kill
him. She knows that she doesn’t have a dowry or anything else
to make her attractive to a husband, but she also knows that
her former mistress will take her back into her household
without an issue. No matter Anne has only loved one man. She
fell in love with Sir Philip Clifford and thought he felt the
same way. That was until the night she was ready to give
herself to him and he honestly let her know that for him it
could only be a dalliance.
Now shockingly, she has run into Sir
Phillip. Since she is masquerading as another, he sneaks into
her room and confronts her. She can’t lie to him so he finds
out the truth. He insists on helping to keep her safe. She
has always pulled on his mind and “other parts” but will he
recognize what that pulling is for love before it is too late?
While her part is daring, Anne decides
that this is her one time to not only live out her fantasies
but her desires also. She gives into the passion that has
always brewed between her and Sir Phillip, knowing that he
hasn’t changed his thoughts on a relationship between them.
But, will it just cement her feelings for him, or will she
also learn to understand him better?
One Knight Only is an
intriguing look at politics and love in the late 1400’s. I
was drawn into this story quickly and it kept me sneaking
pages whenever I was able to, until it was done. Ms. Latham
does a fantastic job in portraying the emotions and thoughts
of her characters. I was going to say this story will put her
on my list of favorite authors, but I found that she has an
“alter ego” that is already there. It does take Sir Phillip a
while to figure out what he is feeling but when he gets there
it makes the story all the more intriguing. I loved watching
the two characters try and save each other. One Knight
Only is a wonderful story and one that you should pick
up if you enjoy historical romances from this time period.
