This wasn't a favorite. It was good but I found Phoebe a bit annoying and a very hard learner. She had a wonderful family and it was a good love story. The hero was a very cool guy. I found myself anxious to finish so I could find a better book.

I really enjoyed this book! Phoebe is so strong, independent and fearless and I loved her. Gabriel is so perfect for her. I could understand Phoebe well-how wonderful it would be to have a knight to rely on!

Gabriel is so stubborn but then he has had to learn the hard way that life is too tough and unfair - thank goodness he "finds" Phoebe - his perfect match in every way!

From a crumbling fairy tale castle on the stormy Sussex Coast to a dazzling, dizzying masquerade ball comes an enchanting tale of a charming knight, a daring maiden, and a sweet, searing, storybook love.....

At sixteen, Phoebe Layton had imagined that Gabriel Banner was a brave and valiant knight, a noble-hearted hero born to rescue ladies in distress. Which was why, eight years later, when she desperately needed help to carry out a vital quest, she could think of no one more suited to the job than Gabriel.

But when she lures her shining knight to a lonely, midnight rendevous, Phoebe finds herself sparring with a dangerously, desirable man who is nothing like the hero in her dreams, and when he sweeps her into a torrid--and blatantly unchivalrous--embrace, she can't help but fear that she has made a dreadful mistake. It is a kiss that will seal Phoebe's fate.

From a crumbling fairy-tale castle on the stormy Sussex coast to a dazzling, dizzying masquerade ball comes an enchanting tale of a tarnished knight, a daring maiden, and a sweet, searing, storybook love...

At sixteen Phoebe Layton had imagined that Gabriel Banner was a brave and valiant knight, a noble-hearted hero born to rescue ladies in distress. Which is why, eight years later, when she desperately needed help to carry out a vital quest, she could think of no one more suited to the job than Gabriel.

But when she lures her shining knight to a lonely midnight rendezvous, Phoebe finds herself sparring with a dangerously desirable man who is nothing like the hero of her dreams, and when he sweeps her into a torrid---and blatantly, unchivalrous----embrace, she can't help but fear that she's made a dreadful mistake. It's a kiss that will seal Phoebe's fate. For now the exacting Earl of Wylde has a quest of his own: to possess the most intriguing, impulsive, outrageous female he has every met...even if he has to slay a dragon to do it.
