Embracing the Knight by Jenn Langston is a well-written historical romance. Ms. Langston has filled this story with fantastic characters. Ian and Claire are robbed by highwaymen and turned out of their carriage. The love each other but neither is aware of the other's feelings. There is plenty of drama, action, sizzle and bits of humor in this story to keep readers engaged. There was a point in the story where I wanted to roll my eyes and tell the characters to grow a backbone and tell the other how they feel. Embracing The Knight is book 1 of the Touched By Fire Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete story, not a cliff-hanger.
