5 Stars: "Delightful
I savored every word of Lady Knight. Ariel is a
strong character. She not only fought
beside seasoned warriors, she led them.
She achieved the status of Knighthood, and
yet was feminine enough to capture the
heart of a Knight. Beautifully written,
sensual, heartwarming, Lady Knight
is sure to please fans of medieval
—Debra Gaynor, Review Your Book
5 Hearts: "Ms. Chenery has
written a great story with two lovable
characters that at times I would have
liked to shake. Ariel is a strong heroine
that takes a stand for what she believes.
She proves a woman can do anything a man
can in a time when a woman was considered
beneath men. And Broc is handsome, strong,
and loyal but so stubborn and blind to
what is right in front of his face.
The trials these two suffer through are at times
overwhelming, but they struggled through
it all, including war, a disturbed evil
man, being sold into slavery, and even
being kidnapped. I would recommend this
one to anyone looking for an excellent
historical that will keep them on the edge
of their seats, biting their nails or even
itching to shake someone. I loved it."

This Norman appeared to be very much like the other. He
wore the same type of helmet and chain mail. Ariel looked lower
and saw the broad sword hanging from the belt strapped around
his waist. His shield hung over his saddle within easy reach.
The shield bore an emblem, the same as the other knight’s, but
his was different. The shield had been completely painted white
and in the center a gold unicorn stood on its hind legs. It
almost seemed to be pawing the air as its ruby colored eye
glared back at Ariel.
Her attention swept back up to the knight’s face as he
raised his arm and removed his helmet. Ariel felt her jaw drop
open as she stared at him. His apparel may be the same, but his
looks did not compare.
His dark blond hair he wore long and caught back by a
leather thong so it fell to his shoulders in a tail. The other
Norman had shaved the back of his head. When asked why, he had
said that it was easier to control when wearing a helmet all the
His eyes were what intrigued her most about this Norman.
At first glance they appeared to be a pale green, but at closer
inspection she realized that they were actually gold. As she
looked, the corners of his eyes crinkled when he smiled at her.
“I hope you found what you are looking for.”
Ariel felt the heat rise to her face. She normally could
talk to any person she encountered, but this knight left her
“You probably only speak English, do you not?”
Ariel continued to look at him. He thought she was one of
the villagers. The rough homespun gown did nothing to make him
think otherwise. Far be it for Ariel to change his opinion. She
did not want to reveal herself, because if she did, courtesy
would dictate she offer him her hospitality. She did not want
anyone outside of the village to see what her father had become.
“Come. I would enjoy your company even if you do not
understand me. I’m sure we will get our ideas across somehow.”
Ariel stared at the hand he reached out with. She knew
she should not take it, but for once she wanted to do something
just for her. Knowing what he offered and thinking she could
reveal herself if it came to be the only way, Ariel placed her
hand in his so he could pull her up to sit in front of him.
He held her around her waist with one arm as he turned
his horse and walked back into the forest. They did not go far
for just passed the tree line a small pond sat in the center of
a clearing. Surrounded by thick trees, it made a perfectly
Ariel looked closer at the knight’s face and fought the
urge to swallow. His perfectly sculptured square jaw with a
slight cleft in the centre and the sharp cheekbones made him the
picture of pure male essence. Ariel saw the slightly darker
stubble of hair on his chin and cheeks. On some men it would
have made them look shabby, but it only enhanced the male beauty
of the knight. There was something about him that called out to
her, to the lonely part of her. She felt alone, even though her
father was still there physically.
He chuckled at her close scrutiny and lowered Ariel to
the ground. When she took a step back from the horse, he
dismounted and tied the reins around the nearest tree. Without
turning he unbuckled his chain mail, slipped it over his head,
and hung it with his sword belt over his saddle.
Ariel briefly wondered how far she should let this go.
For when he turned back, he reached for her and slowly pulled
her toward him. The first sensation that hit her was the all
engulfing warmth that radiated from his body. She had had no
idea men could be so warm. She had not been this close to her
father since she was a very little girl.
When he lowered his mouth toward her, Ariel jerked her
thoughts back to the knight. His lips lightly brushed hers for
the first time. Ariel caught the knight’s scent, a combination
of horse, sweat and his own distinctive male scent.
His lips felt soft and warm, which surprised Ariel. She
had expected she would not like kissing a man. She had been
wrong. He increased the pressure of his lips as she tentatively
slid her arms up and locked them around the back of his neck,
otherwise she would have fallen.
His tongue gently licked her bottom lip. Ariel could not
stop the surprised gasp that left her. He took the opportunity
to slip his tongue into her mouth and gently sweep inside. It
was all Ariel could do to stay afloat.
Something unknown and totally new began to build in the
pit of her stomach. Ariel knew she should put a stop to this
now, but the feelings sweeping through her took all her
reasoning away. All that mattered was making the building
Ariel felt the ground rise up to meet her as the knight
gently lowered her down. The weight of his body on hers felt
right. With hands like magic, he stroked them down her body.
Ariel arched into him as he clamped down on her breast through
her gown. The heat of his mouth grew more intense as he suckled
her through the coarse wool.
Ariel clawed at his back as she tried to pull him closer,
seeking something she did not understand. She barely noticed her
legs had been bared to the air. One of his fingers found her
hot, slick opening and gently probed her, checking her
She automatically tried to clamp her legs together
against his hand. He once more took her mouth until she relaxed
her legs. Pushing against her inner thighs he opened them
His fingers began searching once again until he found her
clit. He rubbed it back and forth. Ariel could not stop the moan
that escaped her. Taking it as a sign of her readiness, he rose
up and pulled at the fastenings of his trews. The hot, hard
length of his shaft gently probed the entrance to her body.
The feel of him sent Ariel over the edge.
Instinctively she raised her hips to give him better access. He
slowly pushed the head of his hard length into her slick pussy.
The feeling of being stretched soon gave way to pain.
At the piece of skin
that barred him from sheathing himself fully, the knight pulled
