A warrior woman (sort of), a baker, and a love story that's out of this world...
Cinda has been baking cakes since she was old enough to measure sugar, and she’d tell you that she has a good life. A relationship with one of the sexier royal knights of Arktos City is high on the list of what’s good…but when the lady knight breaks up with her for a fairly stupid reason, Cinda needs a night out on the town to forget her pain…
Talis has been working as a stablehand in the royal stables of Arktos since she arrived in the city three years ago. She wants to be a knight more than anything else in the world, but when she gets the bad news that because of her notorious family she might not ever even get the chance to become a squire—let alone a knight—she needs a night out on the town to forget her pain…
But when her best friend, Lellie, convinces her to wear a suit of stolen armor (and “borrow” a warrior mare), it sets into motion a night of fantastical adventures, mistaken identity and a sweeping love story. Can two women fall in love in just one night?
JUST ONE KNIGHT is a funny, sexy, romantic novel that is set in the same world as A KNIGHT TO REMEMBER, but it is a stand-alone book. It is part of Bridget Essex's Knight Legends Series: women knights, real-world high jinks, and love stories that transcend space and time.
What Reviewers Say:
5 Stars! How is it possible that this author always manages to write a story which is fascinating from beginning to end. This time her fantasy brings us back into Arktos City. The city of the beautiful knight Virago and queen Calla. A city full of beautiful lady knights but also of women who dreams of becoming a knight. So does our main character, Talis. During a night out with her friend Lellie, Talis helps a woman in need. There was an instant spark between them. A spark that quickly turns into strong feelings for each other. Before they can give into their desires, something unexpected happens. One event follows another at a fast pace and the only thing Talis can do is to offer help again. Not once but twice her help is required and Talis and her friends went on the road together, not knowing what to expect. In the meantime something beautiful blossoms between Talis and the woman she has saved from an disaster. Only a mistaken identity and the complications of that night can destroy everything. Talis know she must reveal her secret but every time she is about to tell the truth, someone interrupts her. A burning hot suprise is waiting for Talis and her friends. A surprise that can change her life totally or it is the end of everything. The author takes you into a roller coaster of actions. A roller coaster where you don't want to step out. I was spellbound by this wonderful story. It was exciting, touching, funny and full of romance. It is excellent written in a good pace and before you know it, you're at the end of the story. I highly recommend this awesome fairytale.
5 Stars! - This is suddenly my favorite of Essex's knight books. Unlike previous installments, this one takes place entirely in the world of Agrotera, where all the lady knights come from. There are very few references to other worlds, but we do see at least one familiar face. This one stands on its own and can be read independently of the rest of the series. It's a fun swashbuckling romp, with a group of courageous ladies who are all individuals and strong in their own ways. I think my favorite aspect of the adventure was how they all worked together, complementing each other's unique skills. And of course, the romance. The relationship between Talis and Cinda could've been cliché, but it remained fresh and well-written. This one will definitely be read more than once.

5 Stars! There are no words to describe how much I loved this book. I absolutely love Bridget Essex's Knight series, and this book definitely lives up to the awesomeness of the others. It's beautiful and fun and heartwarming. Cinda is relatable and funny, and Talis is sexy and cute, all at once. And then, there are so many other wonderful, funny, sexy characters as well. The book has everything you'd want in a Fantasy novel, and it has everything you'd want in a romance novel. When I read this book, I was having one of the worst weeks of my life, and this book made me smile every time I opened it. It made me smile even when I didn't think I could. And it will always hold a special place in my heart because of that. I can definitely see myself reading this book many, many more times. =)
