Naturally all the famous sketches are lovingly preserved, from the knights who say Ni to the killer bunny rabbit, though I must confess to a fondness for the French taunter with his wonderful catalogue of heavily accented playground insults. Curry presides over the proceedings like the most absurdly jovial of headmasters as Arthur while Hannah Waddingham is sensational as a pneumatic Lady of the Lake who sings up a storm and adds a much needed shot of glamour and eroticism to this exceptionally blokish show. Tom Goodman—Hill also shines especially brightly, doubling as a gay Sir Lancelot and that vile French taunter.

For anyone annoyed that I didn't provide the plot, here ya go: It's like Outlander, but even worse! This book started out feeling very contrived and implausible in getting Lucy into the position to be swept back in time. Once Lucy got to the past however the story did get better.
Despite a few plot holes here and there, I did find the remainder of the story entertaining and quite liked Lucy and William as a couple. The ending was somewhat predictable and while the the story may not have kept me riveted to my seat, I did enjoy the gentle romance and am intrigued as to how the author plans to go This book started out feeling very contrived and implausible in getting Lucy into the position to be swept back in time.

The ending was somewhat predictable and while the the story may not have kept me riveted to my seat, I did enjoy the gentle romance and am intrigued as to how the author plans to go forward with series. For this reason I may yet pick up book 2. All in all, enjoyable enough to give it 3 stars. Lucy Merriweather is traveling to England for the first time with her boyfriend Simon Grey.

Your answers await you in A Knight to Remember. Cynthia Luhrs has created a wonderful world and I'm so glad I got to experience it first hand. Like Ms. Luhrs' Shadow Walker Series this one focuses on time travel. The characters and story were rich, raw, flawed, honest, intriguing, and compelling. I'm definitely looking forward to more from this series. Sadly the real him is worse then the rude jerk she's been dating. When Lucy says no to him when he asks her to marry him.
He drugs her, marries her and attempts to murder her, all in the name of a curse on his family that he needs to break.
A Knight to Remember by Bridget Essex: Book Review
This attempt at murder, sends Lucy back in time Will the curse get broken? Will it ever happen? I really liked this story, the writing at times was a tad repetitive, I will always pick up if you said the exact same thing about the exact same person or whatever in a book View 1 comment. Apr 09, Melissa rated it did not like it Shelves: mid-evil , time-travel , didn-t-finish. Why does every book like this start with a girl falling threw time then being surrounded by men who want to rape her I tried to give this a chance, I really did but just couldn't get over the choppy writing, someone with serous ADHD wrote this.
Jumpy and all over would describe the writing. Jan 26, Alicia rated it did not like it. I thought this book had a promising story line, unfortunately it fell short in the execution.
The book felt disjointed and awkward, particularly in the interaction and conversations of its characters. For example this is a conversation between the two main characters Lucy "You know the hives in the gardens? Be careful of the gypsy woman. Many fear her. I adore honey. And yet neither conversation was complete.
If I were William and Lucy just said "I didn't tell the gyspy woman I was from the future" I would say something like "You spoke with the gypsy woman? What did she say to you? Why do you think she knows you are from the future? William had never talked to Lucy about the gypsy woman before. As far as the reader knows, he doesn't know that Lucy knows a gypsy woman exists, let alone that she has met her. The book had some language. While it was a clean read which I appreciate , it fell short of a romance for me. There wasn't a good build up of feelings between the main characters and I'm sorry, but saying they kissed doesn't cut it.
The reader wants to know how they kissed.
I was expecting a bit more given the 5 star ratings. More depth, more romance, and better quality. The concept is not bad, but the execution was lacking, IMO. I don't mind the romance was clean, but the insta-love and lack of any depth and build-up between the hero and heroine didn't please me. It's also not very authentic time-period wise. It didn't feel like medieval times apart from the superficial - knight, castle, etc.
The heroine didn't even try to adapt to the times, but brought the futur I was expecting a bit more given the 5 star ratings. The heroine didn't even try to adapt to the times, but brought the future to the past making cookies, etc. Also, I wish it was explained if her doing things in the past, messed with the future or rather the present - what the consequences were, etc. In most time-travels you can't tell those in the past about certain things because it can alter the course of history. But she introduces concepts not known at those times, and there's little discussion on the implications or consequences.
If, instead of going into the past, she went to a parallel universe, set in the past than everything is fine because it's not messing with our timeline. But I don't think that's what's happening here. So, these issues come off to me as a bit sloppy. Perhaps the other books explain it, but I think it should have been mentioned in book 1. I might read the other two of the series, but now I know not to expect anything amazing, so I probably won't be as disappointed in the future.
I think the author has promise, but needs to work on polishing things up a bit more. Jul 08, Sa rated it it was amazing Shelves: hea , fairytale-love-story , made-me-smile , all-time-favourites , stunning-covers , flawed-characters , lovable-characters , better-than-my-expectations.
I will love you for centuries so somehow you will know to come back to me. This was a sweet romance. I don't usually like sweet romances, I prefer dark ones. This one was charming enough to make even me like it. Lucy was down to earth and treated everyone with love and kindness.
William was protective and hot. Not very sharp seriously, with what happened close to the end, couldn't he guess where Lucy was or what could have happened to her? And on that vein, you don't just tell a traitor to leave wou I will love you for centuries so somehow you will know to come back to me. And on that vein, you don't just tell a traitor to leave would you?

Wouldn't you at least dump them somewhere far away and warn them to stay lost? A crueller person who have harmed her or thrown her out or burnt her. Great thing about this book is that it doesn't beat over your head over and over with angst. William and Lucy are so cute, I can totally envision them as one of those grandparents who, even after 60 years together, are still in love with each other. Good thing Georgina was so nasty, she made Lucy look even better! And there's no cheating or dumb love triangles, thankfully!
Jul 14, Tiffany rated it it was ok Shelves: historical-romance , ebook , time-travel. I really wanted to like this book so very much since time travel is one of my favorites genre. However, after reading so many books from this genre, I feel that this book is lacking in many departments sorry. Romance and English Knights If you are anything like me you've read a thousand and one romances where something happens and someone is transported back in time to some era where they meet the love of their life and must decide between staying or finding a way home.
This all became popular with on Romance and English Knights This all became popular with one of my absolutely favorite novels, The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and started this new type of historical romance where past and present are blended together. Which leads to the question, why should you read this one? To answer that question you need to understand that I love escapism reading, and the way I judge books are on my ability, or lack of ability, to put the book down.
In this case, I started reading late into the evening and had planned to just read a little before heading to bed. Before I knew it my clock was telling me it was 3am and I was considering the ramifications of staying up all night to read vs. While the basic premise of the book may sound familiar, it is the characters that bring a story to life, and this book has some fascinating characters. Simon is fabulously rich and heir to an actual English castle, and has invited Lucy to spend some time with him visiting England.
Lucy agrees in that a. She has always wanted to see England, and b. She wants extended time with Simon to see if she should continue the relationship or end it on good terms. I do not want to give anything away so I will say that the plot thickens and quickly grabs the reader and pulls them into this world.
The author truly knows how to write a good romance and knows how to hold readers attention. The story never fell short, never felt rushed, and never lost tempo. The world was very much brought to life in my mind and was vividly written. So it is for all those reasons that you should read this book. I've read some brilliant books in my life and some really crappy ones, and this one is a good one if you enjoy gushy romances without any vulgarity.
One more thing, while this book is part of a series, it ties up nicely and the story is completely satisfying. Cynthia Luhrs completely knocked 'A Knight to Remember' out of the park. I literally could not put it down. The storyline was absolutely awesome. Plus, it has castles. Who doesn't love castles?
I'm not one to read historical books, mainly due to the confusing language that is used.

But with this book, I was taken back in time alongside Lucy, and I could follow the story. Lucy made the perfect lead. She is smart except when it comes to men , has a great sense of humor, she's compassionate towards others and she has a unique ability of reasoning regarding her actions. Simon was an egotistical and arrogant ass. Plain and simple. William was quite different. As the story played out, I liked William more and more. Albin was a great little guy. Alternate Versions.
