Hott Review of Never Kneel to a Knight:

I have to be quite honest. Never Kneel to a Knight brought to mind something I’ve never encountered before in a historical romance, nor thought about. Boxing.

For years I’ve read about Gentleman Jackson and his training and matches but obviously it never clicked that boxing, though an excellent form of exercise, at the time was meant to be only for ‘lower classes’. Yes, it clicks now, but I’d never focused on it previously.

Though I really enjoyed Never Kneel to a Knight it isn’t my typical read. There’s a lot of family drama and emotional upheaval in this book that literally broke my heart. Matthew’s struggle to be true to himself while trying to elevate his station for his sisters’ sake was humbling. Ivy’s Christian love and family service is one I’ll forever use as an example in my life. Daisy’s defense and protection of the ones she loves is inspiring. And Petunia’s innocence through everything they’ve lived through is a testament to true family love. That Charlotte took them on and gained their trust and love was as amazing as it was heartwarming.

Never Kneel to a Knight is a perfect example of how God’s love can be a light shining in the darkness.

I loved Never Kneel to a Knight and can’t wait to find out which bride Fortune choses next!

Author Bio:

Regina ScottRegina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.

Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science-fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
