Book Description

Bestselling author, CHERYL HOLT, delivers another sexy, exhilarating tale of love, betrayal, and redemption. With her first story set in medieval England, Cheryl proves once again that she’s unmatched in her power to thrill and tantalize readers around the world.

Hugh of Manche has lived a man’s life, fighting for king and country. He’s built his reputation as the toughest, most violent knight in the land. But when his loyalty is rewarded with the title Baron of Morven, when the king gives him the castle and lands that go with it, Hugh finally has a home of his own. He arrives at Morven and—in an effort to keep the peace—is determined to wed the prior lord’s daughter. He’s heard that the girl is a timid, shy maiden, and he’s resigned to the match. So he’s unprepared to encounter a fiery vixen who stirs his blood in ways he’d never imagined.


Anne of Morven has always wanted to become a nun, and she hopes to take the veil—if only she can get her cruel stepmother to agree. She’s always felt that a life of piety and prayer would calm her more wicked impulses. When Lord Hugh arrives, ready to claim his rights, Anne is the first person to learn how ruthless he can truly be. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he’s determined that she will be his bride. Nothing will dissuade him in his quest to make her his own.

As Lord Hugh forces Anne to the altar, then tutors her in the ways of the marriage bed, lust blossoms and sweeps them away. Can love be far behind?

4.0 out of 5 stars Likable characters and a good story November 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is Cheryl Holt's first foray into the medieval world of knights and chivalry and I must say I liked her first offering. Knight of Seduction is a passionate story about a kind gentle woman and a hardened world weary Knight.

Hugh of Manche has battled for his King in far away lands, seen man at his most brutal and is ready to settle and marry. He has been given a castle by his King and he knows he will marry one of the castle residents.

Anne is the illegitimate daughter of the former castle holder and she is treated like a servant by her step-mother. Her sister is rather spoiled and begs Anne to take her place and assume her identity with Hugh since she has no desire to marry him. Anne does this reluctantly and argues vehemently against a marriage with Hugh.

Anne is likable but her good nature is easily taken advantage of by her sister. She finds herself wedded to Hugh and even though he knows Anne is not who she claims to be, he is still happy to be married to her.

Hugh is a charming and fair man. He wants his relationship with Anne to work but he holds back his emotions and he is uncertain when it comes to dealing with Anne's feelings. He makes mistakes along the way but he is also quick to make amends. He is a dynamic personality.

Anne can be way too impetuous but overall she is a sweet girl who does not want to face the heartbreak her mother experienced by falling in love with the wrong man. This is a shorter novel but well written and the characters are colorful. Let's hope Ms Holt continues to write novels in this time period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story. February 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first Cheryl Holt book I have read and I absolutely loved it. I was a little thrown off by the way they keep referring to her books at being "erotica". I will admit that I have not read erotica books but I was pleasantly surprised that this is NOT what I would consider "erotica" and there is actually a wonderful story to this book. The sex was the same as Julie Garwoods, Jillian Hunter, Suzanne Enoch, etc. and very mild sex, which is what makes the book so good because in some cases sex seems to be the only plot to some books, avoiding an interesting story and there is definitely a very good story to this book. I wish they would stop describing her books as "erotica". I have not read all her books so some may be more steamy than most, however after reading this book I wonder if this is a just another way the publisher is trying to sell her books but it is definitely not needed, her writing is very excellent and not repetitive. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical romance books.

4.0 out of 5 stars AN AMUSING AND LIGHTHEARTED READ January 25, 2012
By Reader
Format:Kindle Edition
Anne of Morven was the illegitimate daughter of Baron Ranulf, she had lived in the castle since she was four when her Mother Bedelia had died. Blodwin Ranulf's wife hated the beautiful Anne and took every opportunity to be cruel.
Hugh of Manche a loyal Knight of King Richard has now been given Morven and is the new Baron. It was Hugh who had hung Ranulf on King Richards orders, Ranulf was a traitor to the crown. Upon arriving at Morven Hugh has decided to marry the late Ranulf's daughter Rosamunde, but she had no intention of marrying him and begs Anne to pretend to be her. When Hugh lays eyes on Anne he decides that this beautiful girl will become his wife. But what will happen when he discovers the deception.
This is an entertaining and easy read, there is not much historical detail in this tale, so aficionados of this period in history might be disapointed. Hugh is a complex character one minute he is living up to his reputation as a ruthless and brave Knight, the next more like a naughty schoolboy. He is a self professed liar womaniser and all round scoundrel. Anne has seen firsthand the effects of an unfaithful husband on a wife when her own father had installed her mother in a house next to the castle, much to the chagrin of his wife Blodwin. There was not any real passion in this story instead it had a lighthearted feel, even with the characters who plotted Hugh and Anne's downfall.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay Book March 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As other readers have already mentioned, this book was o.k. but is seriously not up to par with Cheryl Holt's usual caliber of books. To be honest, I haven't finished reading Knight Of Seduction and find it extremely hard to keep reading due to my disappointment with juvenile terms used such as "manly passions", in addition to a Cinderella-type scenario that the author seems to be creating for the main character, Ann. Unfortunately, I didn't like that story much before in the past and think that it's much played out in the romance genre arena. I may try again in the future to continue reading this book if I can overcome my irritation with Ann's constant meddling from her step-mother, step-sister, and step-brother. Ann should take a more strict and staunch stance towards her extended family and throw them out on their ears, without looking back. Overall, the book seems o.k., especially for some light reading while waiting for something like an oil change to be done for a few hours, but it's nothing to call home about. It doesn't seem to hold my interest after only a few chapters.
