Book Review: Her Banished Knight's Redemption by Melissa Oliver.

I was so happy to hear that Melissa Oliver's debut 'The Rebel Heiress and The Knight,' was so successful, because I thoroughly enjoyed it, which is why I was incredibly grateful to be sent her second novel, 'Her Banished Knight's Redemption.' In only two books, Melissa has become one of my favourite, go-to authors! 

The Blurb.

A lady's need for protection
A knight's chance for redemption

Exiled Knight William Geraint answers only to himself. Yet, a mission to reunite lost heiress Lady Isabel de Clancey with her family is Will's chance to finally atone for the torment of his past. With every rushed mile, their intense attraction becomes dangerously thrilling. He swore to protect Isabel not seduce her, but their desire for each other could threaten the redemption he's worked so hard to achieve...

My Review.

Honestly, Melissa has gone from brilliant debut, to fantastic second book, which I can only predict great things for in 2021. I adored reading this over the festive period, in fact it was the perfect time to read it because I didn't feel guilty for not wanting to get off the couch!! My husband and I spent an afternoon climbing a mountain one day, which was lovely and to top the day off I was so excited to get home, warm up with a cup of tea and curl up under my Christmas blankets to continue reading this story. I probably stayed like that for over three hours!!

Melissa's writing completely sucked me in. I know I say it a lot, but only for certain people, but I settled in comfortably from the first page and knew I was going to love the characters, which I totally did. I felt like I was right there with them, which meant I oohed, ahhed and gasped my way through the book. I was on the edge of my seat and holding my breath until Will and Isabel arrived at their destination. It was so much fun; a mixture of comradery, romance and excitement in all the right places. 

Will was incredible. I really am lost for words as how to describe him, but I loved him so much. He was a bit of everything you could possibly want for a leading man and had my heart from the start. The same can be said for Isabel because I loved her bravery, kindness and ability to jump in and adapt to each situation she was thrown into. The two were a great team, one that I was so happy to have met. 

Oh and I also loved any mention of Hugh from book one, because inside I was like 'I know him!!!' He definitely still has cool points and I enjoyed his role in this story - whatever that may be!! You will have to read it to find out more! 

I feel like this review is short for all the things I could possibly say about this book, but simply put, I loved it from beginning to end and would highly recommend it. It's adventurous, romantic and dangerous! Pick up 'Her Banished Knight's Redemption,' today! 

Happy Reading!
