After signing up for a one-night stand through an exclusive matching agency, hopeless romantic Marianne Caldwell is swept away to a medieval land where she hopes to spend the night with a worthy man of honor.
Unsure of how she got from the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas to a castle in the English countryside, Mare finds Robert, whose stunning physique and winning smile immediately convince her he's the Robin Hood she's been seeking. But despite his efforts saving her from a corrupt sheriff, his Jersey Shore accent and coarse ways unravel her romantic visions.
With her fairytale fantasies coming unhinged, Mare must decide if Robert is just a crass car salesman from Brooklyn or the chivalrous knight she's looking for.
What to do when your Robin Hood fantasy date sounds like a guy from Brooklyn and your hotel turns into a castle from the past? Why, go with the flow and leave reality up in the air!
Marianne Caldwell, was supposed to be having a Robin Hood fantasy date with someone named Robert at a Las Vegas hotel that resembled a castle. In a modern take on Robin Hood and Maid Marian, she meets a handsome stranger outside of the hotel and feels drawn to him. What a shock when he starts talking like a blue collar worker from Brooklyn. Robert is a car salesman, also on a fantasy date, looking for Marianne. A convenient band of bad guys and a sprained ankle give Robert the perfect opporunity to play hero to her maiden in distress.
Mare has been looking for someone for the long term, but so far has only found short-term relationships. She's hoping this would be her chance at true lasting love. Robert is a bit of a mystery but he's a good guy, with a young son, and concerned faimly who want him to be happy.
The plot was very interesting and made me want to read the entire story in one sitting. I am looking forward to more stories from Ms. Major. One Knight in Brooklyn is a very enjoyable, hot, quick read, perfect for when you have or need a break during the day. It's well written and fast-paced with just enough humor to keep it light. At the same time, Ms. Major writes some terrifically sexy scenes to keep the tension popping. A story like this makes me wish that I could have such an experience. It's a great addition to Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand Series and an easy recommend.
