Hello everyone! Today I have Alexa Aston on my blog with her book, Heart of Honor, and I must confess, I LOVE the book cover! Each book in the Knights of Honor series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Word of Honor
Book #2 Marked by Honor
Book #3 Code of Honor
Book #4 Journey to Honor
Book #5 Heart of Honor
So, let's read about Book 5!
1375 A.D. – When Sir Christopher “Kit” Emory’s beloved mother falls ill, he decides to seek the help of someone he met briefly at the royal court years ago—Lady Alys de Montfort, a renowned healer despite her young age. While traveling to her home at Kinwick Castle, Kit is accosted by a band of highwayman, who beat and rob him, leaving him to die. Fortunately, an escort party comes across him and Lady Alys insists they take the stranger home so she can use her skill in the healing arts to save his life.
The man awakens and has no memory of his identity, but Alys believes he might be Kit Emory, a young man she’d met once when she was a young girl. Kit comforted her when the queen died and Alys never forgot his kindness to her. Alys does what she can to jog Kit’s memory, even as she struggles with her growing attraction to him, knowing Kit was betrothed and must now be wed. Kit also finds his desire deepening for Alys, but he doesn’t know his own name, much less if he has a wife or family. Until he recalls who he is, he refuses to commit his heart to Alys.
Once Kit regains his memory and realizes he is free to pursue Alys, their road to love is anything but smooth.
Join Kit and Alys as they overcome events that continue to tear them apart and threaten the love they have for one another.
Would Kit remember her?
Years had passed since she last saw him at Windsor Castle on the day of the queen’s death. He would have married Richessa, his betrothed. To have found Kit after all these years—only to lose him all over again.
“You’re safe, my lord,” she said soothingly.
He tried to sit up and sucked in a quick breath.
“You are injured. Broken ribs. And a dagger wound, though it’s not too deep.”
“My head aches,” he complained.
“You have a large knot where someone struck you forcefully.”
He laughed weakly. “I fear they struck me other places, as well. My body throbs as if I have been kicked and then trampled.” He paused. “How did I wind up in such terrible shape?
Alys realized Kit didn’t recognize her and understood why. She had been a mere girl at their only meeting. Six years later, she had blossomed into full womanhood.
With all the longings that brought—and which she had never understood—till this moment.
“Our traveling party found you on the road, surrounding by four dead men. You must be quite the swordsman, striking down so many. We believe you were outnumbered by bandits, though, who beat you and took your possessions.”
He frowned. “My sword?”
“Aye.” She paused. “Even your very clothes. Highwaymen sell the stolen goods, from surcoats to boots, at the local markets. They left you with nothing.”
“They stole . . . my clothes?” he asked incredulously. “I cannot remember any of this.”
“You suffered a severe blow to the back of your skull. It’s possible that is why you do not remember the attack.” She sensed the blush rising on her cheeks as he gazed at her intently. “Might we send a messenger to your family and notify them of your whereabouts?”
He gave her a blank look and finally said, “’Twill be impossible, I fear.”
“I know not who I am.”
