This follows the journey of Max as she runs into a group of outcast knights headed up by a typical, brooding alpha-male named Ryker. She has spent her life on the run and is invited by the ban of knights, who realize she is a “Warden”, to help her realize her potential.
This was a cute. Its a pretty shallow, but I still like it. Max is ball-busting and sarcastic, so I liked it from the get go. Its all an excuse to have heated interactions with Ryker and discuss how amazing and beautiful the heroine is. As I said, it not real deep, so I’m not sure if I will read the rest of the series.
Ryker is a paladin. An ancient knight, born to protect those precious few who hold powers over the elements. He is bound by honour, courage and loyalty. But when tragedy strikes he forsakes everything he stands for, vowing never to serve again. He opens his home to other rejected and dishonoured knights … but never his heart. That is, until a sarcastic, sword-wielding, miniature Warden barges into his life, bringing chaos and mayhem to his carefully ordered world.
Will he forgive himself for past mistakes? Or will old wounds continue to scar his future?
Max is different. She has a strange affinity to nature and finds herself constantly causing disasters wherever she goes. What’s more, strange creatures stalk her every step, their relentless pursuit driving her to the brink of exhaustion. Stumbling upon a gaggle of hot ancient knights seems too good to be true but she can’t deny they have the answers she’s looking for. Too bad their Captain is a growly, insensitive jerk who insults her every time he opens his gorgeous mouth.
Should she trust her instincts and allow herself to hope for the first time in her life? Or will her fierce independence cause her to lose the one thing she has always craved – a home?
