One Knight in Brooklyn by Casea Major

After signing up for a one-night stand through an exclusive matching agency, hopeless romantic Marianne Caldwell is swept away to a medieval land where she hopes to spend the night with a worthy man of honor.

Unsure of how she got from the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas to a castle in the English countryside, Mare finds Robert, whose stunning physique and winning smile immediately convince her he's the Robin Hood she's been seeking. But despite his efforts saving her from a corrupt sheriff, his Jersey Shore accent and coarse ways unravel her romantic visions.

With her fairytale fantasies coming unhinged, Mare must decide if Robert is just a crass car salesman from Brooklyn or the chivalrous knight she's looking for.

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
Marianne Caldwell, Mare, wanted her Robin Hood, someone brave and gallant, someone romantic...handsome... her knight in shining armor. She's gotten tired of the men who are only interested in right now, not forever after. That's why she signed up to 1 Night Stand.

When she saw her date, she was impressed... until he started to speak. Then she began to question her decision:
"Where was the knight who would compose poetic verses for her? Where was the cavalier who would whisper seductive words into her ear as he made love to her? This wasn’t him."
He seemed to be just an ordinary man, who called her “chick” with no sign of seductive words or poetic verses.

Circumstances led Marianne to realize that he was a hero, although he didn’t seem to be one. After making passionate love they promised to meet the next morning. But when it came time to check-out, she didn’t see him and then she found out that her reservation had been canceled the night before and that her room didn’t exist!

Will they meet again? Or did they enjoy just a stolen moment in time?

I enjoyed the book. Yes, it's a short story, but is very well written and about something all women want: to find their knight in shining armor. I just loved her unique way of showing all of us that we should look closer before deciding that the person is not what we want. Although Robert doesn’t tell her nice words and poesies, he is a good and brave man, who is there for her when she needs him.

Some parts of the story seemed a little incomplete, so I will give it just 4 stars.
