Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend. She has no intention of wedding a cursed man, a man ostracized from the church, a man who would only doom any future children they might have to the fires of Hell. She prays for a knight to rescue her.

Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace.

But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?

In A Knight with Grace, Lady Grace Willoughby is quite sure of the fact she does not want to marry Sir William de Tracy. Her main reason for not doing so is that he’s a cursed man, ostracized from the church. He’s been excommunicated because of a horrible crime in his past, and Grace wants nothing to do with him.

William on the other hand, is desperate for redemption. When he’s ordered to retrieve Grace, and an assassin tries to kill her, William realizes he has growing feelings for the woman. And Grace too starts to feel something for William. Can they overcome the past, and find love together?

I didn’t want to spoil too much of the plot, but there is a lot of intrigue going on and secrets that could hurt William and Grace’s relationship, let alone the assassin out to hurt her. The writing is fast-paced and flows really well. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to stop.

The author did an amazing job crafting both Grace and William and making them realistic and enjoyable characters. They also had a lot of chemistry. The setting was detailed, and it was easy to imagine yourself being there as a reader.

A suspenseful, thrilling historical romance that I would recommend to all fans of the genre.
