    I loved this story....I could definitely relate to this story. I also had a baby due to a one-night-stand....I wished my story could have ended similar to Shayne and Carla's. Wayne Jordan is a great author...every book that I read by him is a great read :)

    Awsome Read

    After reading the first book in the Knight series, I just had to read the second book and I was so pleased with this book as well. Mr. Jordan really knows how to write a great story! I am so looking forward to the next installment in this series.

    An entertaining contemporary romance

    She came to the Barbados to reflect on the emptiness of her life since the tragedies occurred. He owns a sugar plantation on the island, but needed time to reflect on the empty nest syndrome that haunts him since the siblings he raised after their parents died have gone off to college. Strangers in the night exchanging glances (accolades to Sinatra), each feels the desire for the other. They fail to exchange names, but make love like there is no tomorrow. However, in the morning light Carla Nevins finds her beloved stranger gone. Shayne Knight had to leave suddenly on business, but vows to return for the stranger he loves. However, when he returns to their love nest, she has left. Not long afterward, Carla learns she is pregnant so decides to go back to Barbados to try to find the stranger to inform him although she plans to raise their child alone. Shayne thanks the heavens for a second chance, but must persuade the still hurt and distrusting Carla that he too fell in love before that night was through.--------------- ONE GENTLE KNIGHT is an entertaining contemporary romance starring two likable protagonists who due to her pregnancy have a second chance at love. The lead couple is a wonderful duet as they fall in love even before they know any personal information. The support cast enhances the understanding of the prime stars while the audience also obtains a side of Barbados that the tourists normally do not see adding to a warm delightful Caribbean romance that spins beyond the second chance theme when Darius is born.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    One Gentle Knight

    This is the first novel I've read by Mr. Wayne Jordan and the first romance novel I've read by a male author. I will definitely have to back-track and read more of his work. KUDOS to Mr. Jordan, he has a wonderful gift and I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic tale. He definitely captured the romance and excitement of Barbados, I couldn't put the book down until I was finished. The passion and heat between Carla and Shayne was extremely HOT, yet it had an endearing tenderness to it. The secondary characters only aided in giving more depth and understanding to the very likable main characters. Reading about Carla and Shayne's love affair was like watching a very entertaining movie filled with beautiful Caribbean scenery, and an unending supply of romance and well written dialogue. Looking forward to reading more about the Knight family and their friends.
