She may not need a knight in shining armour to save her, but that doesn't mean she's going to look a gift knight in the visor...
Paisley doesn't need a knight in shining armour to rescue her from her high–powered, abusive ex–husband. She's got it covered on her own: she's changed her name, liquidated her assets, and has a plan to disappear in the Rocky Mountain National Park.
Psychiatrist Sterling James has absolutely no intention of being anyone's saviour. The only woman he has any time for is his sister. But circumstances change when Sterling finds Paisley in an unexpected and life–threatening situation. Brought in to the drama of her escape, Sterling finds himself invested, and he can't move on until he knows Paisley is going to be safe.
It should be a simple enough exercise to get Paisley out of the park and into her new life. But nothing is ever as simple as it should be, and Sterling soon discovers that even if her ex–husband buys the set–up, he might not be able to watch Paisley go...

About the Author
Robyn Rychards grew up in the granola bowl of the United States, Boulder Colorado, a town filled with fruits, flakes and nuts. She
considers herself a Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none and has taught herself to sew, paint, play the piano, garden, cook, the list
goes on. But now that her books are published, she's thrilled to finally be considered a master of one. At least as much as a person
can be, for the learning never really stops.
She feels her active imagination is a blessing and a curse, with the blessing far outweighing the curse, since it has led her to fulfil
her dream of writing romance stories for Harlequin. Robyn started writing stories when she was a teenager because she didn't have
enough books to read, and sometimes finds it hard to believe that people are willing to pay her to do something she enjoys so much.
Then there's the added bonus of having a good reason to put off cooking and cleaning, much less a job that means you can stay in
your jammies as long as you want. That's priceless.

Her Knight in Shining Armour is a short story that starts just as Paisley is putting her desperate escape plan into action. Her abusive and controlling husband watches her every move so faking her own death seems her only way out. Here enters her white knight, Sterling a psychiatrist with his own problems. His natural ability to read people's actions helps him to assess Paisley isn't simply out for a casual stroll in the park and his quick thinking helps her out of her escalating predicament of being trapped once again by her husband. There were a couple of close shave moments which made me hold my breath thinking they might be caught out. Alot of drama crammed into this short read. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was an excellent story. I could really feel for the heroine. Paisley suffered what many woman do and was able to have a new life. Sterling was an awesome hero. Perfect for Paisley. As with this author's other book. I bought and read this one in one setting. A great read. I
What an emotional and heart rending story. In past relationships, Paisley Vitale and Sterling James have both suffered from different forms of abuse and don't believe they will ever find a happily ever after or that they really deserve one. This story was full of twists and turns as they searched for their elusive happiness. Would that be together or apart? Running from an abusive, stalking ex-husband, Paisley just knows she has the fool proof plan, but a chance encounter with a deer, a tree, and a bear changed everything. Waking up in a strange man's tent, she could hardly control her emotions: rage, fear, desire and confusion. She didn't want any man to help her, but certainly not a heart stopping, gorgeous, fall-into-my-eyes psychiatrist. She loathed all men, but what she felt for Sterling was certainly not loathing, but desire. Seriously hurt and afraid her ex-husband would find her, she succumbs to the plan he outlines to help her flee from the park and get her back on her feet. Acting like lovers whenever necessary throughout their escape from the park pushed the envelope for them both. As these unwanted sparks of desire constantly flowed between them from the first moment they met, her desire to be free of every man constantly warred with the emotion. When he proposes a new plan to help her escape her ex-husband's clutches, she is astounded. She had lost her freedom once and barely survived, was she crazy to take a chance again? Handsome, sexy, and rich, Sterling James is known as the Ice Man,but he has an immunity against women. After several painful experiences in his past, he has decided they only want his body or his money, but they don't want just him. With his libido in the deep freeze for so many years, it was easy to be aloof, cold and a challenge to women, but when he laid eyes on Paisley, all his thoughts changed. Saving her from an enraged bear and a terrible accident, he is smitten from his first glance at her. Unlike any other women he has ever met, she fired his desire and thawed the ice around his libido and his heart. But would she be like all the rest? He had been emotional abused and played for a fool before, but he wanted to trust his judgment this time. If he could help her find herself, maybe he would find himself in the process. He liked being her knight in shining armour, protecting her, rescuing her and fighting her battles. Was he being played for a fool again? Was his judgment sound? Could he have a happily ever after? Should he even take a chance? This was my first read by this marvelous author, but it will definitely not be my last. A roller coaster of emotions on both sides gave the story an added dimension of reality to the problems encountered in cases of past emotionally and physically abused relationships. From the first page to the last, I found myself hurriedly turning the pages to see how they would solve their problems next. Excellent story. Well developed characters melded with a well thought out plot to create a masterful story as they try to find their way to an eternal love. I enjoyed the story tremendously. I would recommend to any romance readers who desired a story that is appealing on several layers of emotions. I was given a copy by the author for an honest review. 5/5 Stars Could they save each other???
