From Publishers Weekly

The year is 1189, and amid the swirling intrigues against ailing King Henry Plantagenet appear two spirited young people, each intent on a personal mission. Damion de Jarnac is a fearless rogue knight bound to his code of honor and by loyalty to his king. Attica d'Alerion, betrothed to a 13-year-old boy to cement a political alliance, honors family loyalty. Thus, when she learns a plot against the king may endanger her beloved brother, Stephen, she dons the disguise of a young boy and rides to warn him. Damion rescues Attica from a brigand ambush and agrees to escort her to her destination when he hears of the plot against Henry. He quickly realizes he is escorting a fearless young lady instead of a lordling, and a tumultuous romance develops between these strong-willed individuals. The book rings with clinks of armor, political intrigues, galloping chases and near-death escapes. As plot and tension escalate, Damion unhappily comes to see that Attica's brother is a traitor to the king, and he fears the decision he must make will forever banish Attica from his life. Proctor, a consummate storyteller, adeptly captures the splendor, romance and brutality of medieval Europe. (Aug.)

From the Inside Flap

Spirited Attica d'Alerion will do anything to protect her beloved brother from danger. To warn him of a political betrayal that could lead to war, Attica disguises herself as a young courtier and bravely rides into the arms of destiny.

Damion de Jarnac is the black knight, a rogue horseman bound by no code of honor except his own blind ambition. Working for the aging King Henry, Damion scouts the hills of Brittany on a dangerous mission to expose the treachery of Philip of France. There he joins forces with a courageous lad-- who turns out to be the most intriguing woman he has ever met. But to win the beautiful Attica's love, Damion must slay the demons of an unforgivable past. And to save his doomed country, he must make a deadly decision that could break his lady's noble heart. . . .

This is my first book of Candice Proctor and happily not the last. THE LAST KNIGHT is one of the books recommended to me. To my dismay, I didn't pick this book up sooner just because Candice Proctor was unknown to me. shucks! I didn't really pay much attention to it until I decided to check the ratings. The all "5 stars" rating and the intriguing comments turned me into buying this book. I am truly thankful for all the reviewers who have left their helpful comments... not only did I have a fabulous time, I found myself a new worthy author to look into. I totally agree with the rest of the reviewers here... Indeed, this book is captivating! Full of love, passion and adventure. It was a lovely change to read a hero and heroine expressing their love to each other from the very start of the story. No hesistations, no pretentious, no denials. They love each other, said so and showed it with passion. This book is about a knight with a dark past who swore fealty to the King and a young Lady who is caught between loyalty, treachery and family honor. Damion and Attica are both honorable people. They both have set the same high standards of values. Attica: proud, strong willed, courageous and loyal. Damion might not admit it willingly but he is chivalrous, loyal and a true gentleman. So what happends when all these honorable traits (especially Loyalty) hinders love and happiness? What to do when values and strong beliefs stands between love and life? Which path to choose? Ah, truly a heart-stopping, heart warming read. A very entertaining book! I can't wait to read more of Ms. Proctor's works.

This was a captivating story. The love story between Damion and Attica was tender and passionate. It was refreshing to read a romance novel where the basis of the story was not revolving around sex. I believe the book was so much more enjoyable because you were thoroughly involved in the story line. Candace Proctor wrote a beautiful story that allowed me to feel the joys and sorrows of this tale. I have read "Night in Eden" also by Candace Proctor but must say "The Last Knight" was by far a better read. This love story is one of the reasons I enjoy reading historical romances. If you have not read this book I strongly recommend it. I don't think you'll be sorry.

I swear, Candice Proctor's writing gets better and better with each book. THE LAST KNIGHT, her most recent book, is what I believe to be her best novel yet. Full of adventure and true romance, it's a story that fits perfectly in the romance genre. Attica d'Alerion and Damion de Jarnac are the most passionate characters that I have had the chance to read. They admitted that they loved each other from the start and weren't even afraid of showing it. They did anything they could to protect each other from danger. Damien saved Attica's life twice, and both times Damien told Attica to run to safety, but she would not budge and infact helped Damien ward off the enemies - this is just a small example of courage in both characters. Both of them were intelligent, determined, and charming. I loved every part of the book, and was very sad when I finished it. I highly recommend THE LAST KNIGHT, it is romance writing at its best.

This book was absolutely delightful! The characters were brave and noble, the chemistry between hero and heroine was just right and...(the part I liked best).. is that they actually had FUN! They ran, they romped, they escaped, they trembled, they held hands,they (both!) realized they loved each other --- and this was in the MIDDLE of the book! Yahoo! No denial, denial, denial of their emotions until the second to last page of the book. This was MUCH more enjoyable, to have the 2 main characters have some romance and fun without all that angst. My only minor criticism, is the (yuckky) names: The heroine's name was Attica and her promised fiance's name was Fulk. The hero's name was Damion, which was fine. I just thought the lovely heroine deserved a better name than Attica. The Last Knight is highly recommended, just like all of Candice Proctor's other books. P.S. Did you know that the author's sister is Penelope Williamson, another terrific romance author? I found that out by reading all these Amazon reviews.

Every so often you come across a good book and once in a while, a great book but none such as this one that takes my breath away. Candice Proctor weaves a powerful tale about an incredibly courageous girl who braved all odds to save the life of her beloved brother.
Amidst political upheaval where one false move or indiscreet revelation could mean certain death, Attica d'Alerion disguised as a boy teamed up with fellow traveller, Damion de Jarnac, a knight-errant, to ensure safe passage to her destination. Neither trusting the other as each has their own secrets to safeguard, Attica and Damion were inevitably drawn to one another as they battled enemies and fled their captors. As they come to rely on each other, so too did their love grow. But knowing that their love would be futile as Attica has been promised to another where duty and honour take precedence over personal feelings, it would take a miracle for their love to triumph.
Unlike most romance-themed novels which revolve around passion and desire, this story focussed on elements of danger, political intrigue and has scenes so poignantly described by the author even a non-romance fan would be hooked!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! and even if you remotely like historical romance, this book is definitely the one to read. The characters, Attica and Damion are so vibrantly alive that they will linger in your mind even after the last page was turned.
I hope Candice Proctor goes on to write more medieval-based novels.
