Length: 250 pages
Release Date: July 2013
Yves Sucat was a Crusader trapped in a canine body…until a beautiful twenty-first century dog groomer offered the missing link to break his spell. But Regina Patterson was no fluffy-headed female who would instantly melt at Yves’ silvery seduction. The more time he spent with the tender-hearted blonde, the less he was able to keep his paws—hands!—off of her.
Regina was much more comfortable with dogs than men, and the stunningly handsome – stunningly male – knight who now shared her apartment was no exception. She’d hoped to find a man as loyal as the pooches she pampered day after day, but would Yves’s broken curse end with her own broken heart?

One Hot Knight was an all-around good book. I enjoyed reading it. The story revolved around the curse as its central point of focus. I found myself at times enjoying the interaction between the characters, but at times I also wanted more. Regina was that girl that you want to be friends with, but Yves at times came across as being a little lacking in the romance department, which is a bit strange for a paranormal romance book.
As a little girl, I think most of us enjoyed reading fairy tales. I think most little girls at one time dreamed of a Knight to come galloping into her life. Knights are honorbound. They rush in and save the day! They make everything better!
The fact that this particular knight was cursed as a dog for hundreds of years also adds to the fairy-tale idea, I think, in that most little girls want a dog to call their own, to be their closest companion.
The books turned out to be a bit of an adult-fairy tale, if there is such a thing. It was an interesting read, and it held my attention, even if at times it left me wanting something a bit more romantic out of the brave knight! I would definitely recommend the book for others.
