About the Author

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.

A knighted boxer with the heart of a prince Somehow, in all the movies I've seen and the books I've read, I've always assumed that to be knighted was not only a great honor, it was also a big deal in general. I've never before considered the implications of going from a more "common" background to being elevated into a society that snubs those deemed "unworthy". . . These are exactly the circumstances Matthew, aka the Beast of Birmingham, finds himself in. You may remember him from Never Vie for a Viscount, which released last December. Matthew descends from a tradesman who didn't even have the distinction of owning a factory or a mill - he simply worked there. So when he is on the verge of being knighted for saving the Prince Regent's life, he needs help. His sisters do as well. There are so many things they need to learn to be accepted into their new world. I really liked the way the author brought out the challenges this life change would have caused this family and had me considering what it really would be like. Matthew may have a ""common"" background, but he has the heart of a prince. The thoughtfulness he shows his sisters is as sweet as is the way they trust him implicitly. And of course, the youngest, Petunia, has him wrapped around her little finger. While there is not as much intrigue or mystery in this as in previous books of the series, it is still a pleasurable read for those who enjoy historical, Regency romances. The confrontation with the Sorrels is narrated in great detail. The author's description of the events of that terrible night contained in such great detail I felt like I was watching a movie. And yet despite the bullets, knives, and other weapons, it was not overly violent or bloody. I loved learning more about the ice trade and the ways and places the ice was transported. Having read enough period novels to know that the English had ice in the summer, I always wondered how they got it. I was surprised to learn some of the other places the ice traveled. This is a must-read book and is already on my list of candidates for Best of 2019! Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a copy of this book. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.

Never Kneel to a Knight was a delightful story! I enjoyed seeing Charlotte help Matthew and his sisters learn to navigate society. This story could possibly be enjoyed as a stand alone, however, reading the book directly before this novel, Never Vie for a Viscount, would be helpful as Charlotte and Matthew do appear quite frequently in it. This series also has romance that slowly builds throughout each book and centers around Miss Thorn, the owner of the employment agency. Charlotte was wonderful with Matthew’s sisters. She was the best blend of understanding listener, observer, and instructor. My favorite scenes were definitely between Charlotte and Matthew. Their interest in each other had been building for so long and seemed hopeless before Matthew’s unexpected elevation in society. What a fun sneak peek in the back of the book, too! I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series! I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
