Madelaine Alexander is on a mission. When her boss sends her to the hottest nightclub in town to meet with the owner, she won't be deterred, even if that means standing in line for fifty-eight minutes in torturous heels while she'd rather be home in her pj's with a bowl of popcorn.
A Knight of the Templar, Christien Chevalier was given immortality along with the responsibility of protecting the treasure of the Templars. He's been unwavering in his task for centuries until his one true love—who died seven hundred years ago—shows up in his club, demanding his attention.
Christien couldn't protect Madelaine when they first fell in love. She was married to a lord and he was simply a knight. Now, through some unknown miracle, she stands before him again and they have a second chance. But Christien fears that Madelaine is being used as a pawn in a dangerous game, a game of good versus evil that could affect all of mankind...

I’m not sure how to review Her Dark Knight. The premise was interesting and the storyline okay. I think that’s the problem…the premise was interesting but the execution just okay. Nothing really stands out for me. The story never really engaged me.

The heroine irritated me throughout the novel. She’s rather weak and insipid. Instead of standing out, she faded into the background. The same with the hero. He was a 700 year old warrior, but his indecision and whining didn’t make him out to be strong.

I was curious how the story would play out, but not really invested in the outcome.

2.75 out of 5
