Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A promising match turns into a bitter misunderstanding when young Edouard de Lanceau makes a bet to steal a kiss from Juliana de Greyne, his potential betrothed, and is forced to confess his actions were a ruse. Years later, though more tender feelings still lie beneath the surface, fate conspires to keep them apart when Edouard is tricked into a betrothal by Juliana’s sister Nara. However, when Juliana is attacked and loses her memory, Edouard finds her still alive, and dares to hope at a chance to make amends. Kean continues the sword-wielding adventures first told in A Knight’s Vengeance (2006) and A Knight’s Temptation (2009), delivering more of her winning brand of medieval lore kissed with Hollywood drama, and complete with the return of the diabolically over-the-top Veronique. Readers will root for the intrepid couple, and take with them a warm feeling at the conclusion of this sweet romance. --Nina C. Davis

A damsel in distress and a rogue who isn't quite what he seems. This is the story of A Knight's Persuasion.

I'm normally not much into historicals because I like stories with a spicy angle. This story goes against the grain for me in a good way. Catherine Kean's method of storytelling drew me in immediately, making me want to know what was going to happen next. I started A Knight's Persuasion and in a matter of hours, had it finished, not wanting it to end. Ms. Kean writes in such a fashion that I felt like I was right there next to Edouard and Juliana.

Edouard isn't the man he seems and it's a great change of pace. I liked Juliana's pluck. There is a sizzle of unspoken passion between them, even early on that I wanted to see work out. I found myself rooting for them over and over.

But just when I thought I had the story figured out, Ms. Kean threw in a curveball that kept me on my toes. The subplot is complicated, but makes the tale rich. I loved that Edouard's family couldn't make things easy for him and Juliana, making both characters relatable. The antagonist, though mean and nasty, enriches the plot, making me want to read more.

If you want a story that will stay with you long after the last page and characters that feel like your friends, then you need to read A Knight's Persuasion.

A Knight's Persuasion by Catherine Kean
Medieval Historical Romance - May 1, 2010
5 Stars

A Knight's Persuasion is the forth book in Catherine Kean's Knight Series about medieval knights and the ladies that they fall for.

A Knight's Persuasion tells the story of Edouard de Lanceau son of Moydenshire's great Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau who while riding to an important meeting on behalf of his ill father, finds an unconscious woman lying in the river. He is shocked to discover its Lady Juliana de Greyne, the woman he was once almost betrothed to. Despite an unfortunate incident that put an end to any betrothal between the two families, he has never forgotten Lady Juliana. After finding her, he is compelled to protect her when they both are put in danger. His father's enemies will do anything to destroy them and Edouard vows that he will do anything needed to protect Lady Juliana. The story includes a very interesting subplot involving Edouard's father and his enemies led by a woman who was once his mistress but who now seeks to destroy him and all he holds dear.

Catherine Kean does a fabulous job of creating characters with an interesting and remarkable past which makes them fascinating to read about. Edouard and Lady Juliana are both characters that are both very attractive characters in heir own, but become even more compelling as they are forced together and must rely on each other for their very lives. I really liked how both Edouard and Lady Juliana experienced normal failures that made them more human and appealing to read. Edouard is someone I could easily relate to. I also enjoyed the subplot stories that involve Edouard's father's enemies. These characters definitely had a past which made their lives a rich and multi-layered read.

Even though this book was part of a series and this was the first book I have read by Ms. Catherine Kean I was able to understand the plot of the book. This was a very good story with lots of sexual tension between the hero Edouard and the heroine Juliana. Even though Edouard come across in the beginning as an arrogant lout leaving less to be desired in his behavior towards Juliana and attempting to kiss her which goes horribly wrong. This sets in motion the main point of the book causing Edouard and Juliana despite their strong attraction to each other actually to avoid one another. Edouard actually grows up and changes as the book progresses feeling some guilt, agreeing to marry Juliana's sister Nara and wanting to apologize for all the things he has done to her but things aren't always as easy as they seem eventually there is a happlily ever after for Edouard and Juliana.
The villians Veronique and Tye are just incredible. Their characters are very well-written that in some parts of the book I was actually rooting for them. Both of them are wonderful in their deviousness and machinations driving the story Edouard becomes a much better chivalrous guy attempting to protect Juliana and Juliana in spite of her amnesia is a very brave courageous woman.
Why I rated this book four stars is that I did find it hard to believe that even though Edouard and Juliana are laying together to keep warm they don't try to at least steal a kiss or do something at least a little physical besides Juliana accidently touching Edouard's left thigh or manhood. It just seems that both of them are just to immaculate in avoiding a physical relationship even though they both desire and think constantly about wanting each other but do absolutely nothing about it.

The storyline and chemistry between Edouard and Julian in this story was palpable, yet Catherine Kean fails to allow that reasonable romantic culmination of physical release to transpire for her characters, and the reader too. The end felt hollow and rushed to the point where I felt true disappointment, as the plot had the build up to be sooooo much more. The ball was dropped here and that's such a shame when it comes to these two characters because their interactions were charged and while based on misunderstandings, bad timing or the circumstances (especially the second half of this book), their "connection" remained. I wanted to give this story three stars for the good plot/writing and I wanted to give it one star because of the abrupt, unsatisfying ending, so I decided to rate it in between. Had I been given more in the way of their romance, especially at the end, this would've been a story worthy of four stars at least. I liked this story in so many ways, and it pains me to see this particular ball drop, because this story had potential to be so much more. I dare say that if Catherine Kean softened the abrupt ending, fleshed the character's reactions at the end of the book, and put up a more explicit version of this tale, she'd have a top seller on her hands. Those bones to do that are here, she just failed to add romantic flesh to them, and for this particular story, that's such a shame.
