Her Unforgettable Knight
She never forgot him…
Can she ever forgive him?
Part of Protectors of the Crown. Marguerite never expected to see Savaric again—let alone to have to help him when she finds him outnumbered in a fight. He’s the brooding knight she fell for two years ago, until he left her unexpectedly. Now Marguerite is a hardened spy, and wary of trusting him again. But how long can she resist their connection when they must work together to protect the Crown…?
At the beginning of this book Savaric and Marguerite haven't seen each other for two years as Savaric decided to run away from his feelings and protect Marguerite from the bigotry and racism he experiences daily.
Marguerite in the interim has become a spy, well trained in self-defence and skilled at throwing daggers. She is working for the same man as Savaric but is also pursuing her own personal mission of clearing her father's name and getting back her family's land. She is definitely not the damsel in distress that Savaric left behind two years earlier.
Unravelling the plot against the crown is dangerous for the pair but they make a good team although they are reluctant to spend time together. The attraction is still there but Savaric fights his inner turmoil and is determined not to act on it for Marguerite's sake.
It isn't long before the mission takes a very dangerous turn for Maraueirite and Savaric and it's a race against time to save themselves, capture the traitors and save the crown from the Duo Dracones. It makes an exciting read as the pair fight for their survival.
This is the third book in the series. I haven't read the previous ones but found that this worked well as a standalone although the back stories do sound very interesting and I would like to read the series from the beginning. There are characters from the previous books that appear here so fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favourite characters again.
