woman-1a“The Elfin Knight” is a title truly deserving of our “Book of the Week” honor. The adventurous romance novel begins when protagonist Anna is whisked away from her luxurious estate in Sussex, England. The young noblewoman faces an uncertain future due to her father’s capture as an enemy of the Crown. Fortunately, Anna’s elderly aunt writes her a letter, granting Anna permission to live at her rural estate in Scotland. Here, Anna finds herself surrounded by fear, mystery, and intrigue as she stumbles about the grounds of The Shadows.

Though Anna’s Aunt Cecily is a kind and caring woman, Anna struggles to get comfortable at the new manor, primarily due to the cold shoulder she receives from Cecily’s beautiful ward Morag. As conniving as she is beguiling, Morag seems intent on making Anna’s life at The Shadows truly miserable. Bewildered by the winding passageways of tforest 1he castle and overwhelmed by the vastness of the Scottish estate, Anna can’t help feeling that something is amiss at The Shadows. Most of all, she fears the shadowy silhouette of a man that she often spies on the edge of the forest. Could this be the devilish elfin knight, intent on stealing the innocence of young maidens such as Anna?

Curtis’s novel deftly evokes the danger and excitement of life in 17th century Europe. Throughout the novel, Anna meets a number of strange and enigmatic men, ranging from stable boy Joe Kilpatrick to the charmingly foreign François de Waleran. Can any of these gentlemen aid Anna in saving her father from a traitor’s uncertain fate? Only time will tell.

Castle-1By the novel’s end, Anna has blossomed into a woman. No longer a fearful and naïve young girl, she has found love and awoken to her womanly desires.

I highly recommend this uniquely intriguing romance novel by Kelly Curtis. Passion, action, and mystery all play a role in this captivating page-turner. History buffs and romance lovers alike are sure to enjoy this fascinating novel.
