    Jackie Ivie is a writer who captures the passion of romance in a book

    There is love so strong and powerful that it can withstand any pain and suffering brought onto it. This type of love is not always a love match at first but when you have your heart captured by it there is no letting go of it.

    The heiress, Dallis Caruth was part of the Caruth clan that had been at war with the Dunn-Fadden's since the beginning of time. But now that Payton Dunn-Fadden has conquered her castle there is nothing to stop Payton from claiming the prize he feels he won which includes Dallis. Now Dallis on the other hand is not quite so giddy with love toward Payton and while their wedding night lights up the sky with passion Dallis does not mind that Payton has to be away for awhile to finish his conquering career and hold on to the title of King's Champion.

    But three years away from his wife was a moment too long and once Payton returns his objective was to beget an heir not fall in love with his very conniving wife. Dallis has worked hard to get away from this marriage she feels is a sham but once Payton returns and the time they spend together does not push them apart but instead draws them closer to one another. Love was the last thing she thought to have with this man but love is indeed what she is feeling along with so much desire it is frightening.

    Payton has more traveling to do before they settle in their home and he takes Dallis along on the journey. It is one filled with wicked widows, temperamental Kings and jealous suitors all possessing greed and jealousy with a bit of falsehood and lies thrown in for good measure. Dallis fights for the relationship she swore she did not want and does her best under the worst of conditions to keep Payton safe and warmly wrapped up in the arms she is extending out to him.

    This is an engaging sixteenth century historical romance

    In 1540 Scotland, Dallis "White Satin" Caruth has no choice but to wed a man she loathes. She is informed without her feelings considered that she will marry the King's champion, Payton Dunn-Fadden; who in her mind is a beast. They marry, but she has one other secret vow; somehow someway she will destroy her brute of a husband who is beneath her station. He, on the other hand, knows her scorn yet plans to tame the shrew he calls wife.

    However, as Dallis and Payton live as man and wife, she sees a kinder gentler person than she imagined. She begins to fall in love, which supersedes her thirst for vengeance. Now she wants her husband's love and perhaps more important his trust.

    This is an engaging sixteenth century historical romance starring two enemy combatants falling in love. Each comes to the marriage with a personal agenda that quickly becomes superseded by desire, attraction and love. Although the relationship between the pair for the most part is dysfunctional making the anticipated ending a bit abrupt, fans will enjoy the Beauty and the Beast; Jackie Ivie style.

    Wonderful Read

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** A drunken, out-of-control foray sets events in motion that change lives-lives ruled by extreme rage and love. A Knight and White Satin is a high-tension, adrenaline-pumping story with love scenes that leave one breathless.

    Dallis Caruth knows what to expect from clan raids, her family has long adhered to the harsh beliefs. She hates being on the losing side. She knows she lacks the physical to stop Payton Dunn-Fadden's assault, but she knows she has wits, cunning and determination that can help set her world back in order in time.

    The cunning, conniving King James has a hold on the mighty Payton Dunn-Fadden and keeps him fighting to replenish to the royal coffers. Payton is "The King's Champion". He is adored and welcomed with open-arms by many, especially women. He hates it all. He want to return to is own keep with his honor guard to build a solid life away from court. However, he had not reckoned with the maneuvering of the woman he had forced to marry him nor had he reckoned with the love that could destroy him like no foe had ever done.

    The selfish misuse of royal power, the undercurrent of secret machinations, the cruel Scotland winters, and the steadfast loyalty and love in A Knight and White Satin make it an exciting read that immerses the reader in some hair-raising fights and out-of-this-world lovemaking.

    Jackie Ivie captures the attention with the first sentence and holds it until the last word in A Knight and White Satin.

    Well written

    Intrigue, independent heroine, and an amazing protagonist. Once begun, it's hard to put down.

    I really liked this book. I felt Payton went from caring little

    I really liked this book. I felt Payton went from caring little about Dallis, to loving her completely. Same for Dallis character, but still a very good e-book. It doesn't have 352 pages, but 266. Was fast moving and I loved all the other characters in this book.. A very good book and I highly recommend it.

    Romatic and great love story in a time long gone

    Ivie does a great job portraying the struggles of women from long ago for freedom and wanting to be independent. However, Dallis doesn't realize that man that comes to claim her, her lands and her castle is going to be so intrigueing and handsome. While trying to hold tight to all she loves and holds dear she looses her heart to this man. The struggles they both go through are very relatable even today. She does a beautiful job describing the desires they both feel.

    Exceptional

    This book was not your run of the mill romance novel. It went from castle and keep to being in the kins's court. Wow talk about shake things up. Jackie does a exceptional job of pulling on your attention keeping you nose in this book until the very end. Not to mention pulling of every heart string you posses. Read you won't be dissapointed! I promise!
