A librarian, a warrior woman, and a love story that's out of this world....
Holly tells herself that the reason she hasn't asked her girlfriend to move in (after four years of dating) is that she's too busy - but it isn't true. A very book-obsessed librarian, Holly has buried herself in so many romantic and magical stories, that at night, she dreams of a woman who will sweep her off her feet - something her indifferent girlfriend has never done. But one night, during an unusually vicious storm, magic and romance appear in Holly's backyard in the form of a mysterious, gorgeous woman...wielding a sword.
The dashing stranger's name is Virago. She claims that she's a warrior on the hunt for a great and terrible beast; that she, and the beast, slipped through a portal from their world into ours. Holly isn't sure what to believe, but she is now responsible for a (possibly crazy) swordswoman who is bewildered by modern-day conveniences like escalators, but not by the chivalry of sweeping a woman off her feet.
Can Holly help Virago find her own world again, or will that falling-in-love thing get in the way? And, of course, there's the tiny problem of the beast Virago wounded that is now seeking revenge....
A Knight to Remember is a light-hearted, fantastical romance that will take you on a journey you'll never forget.
Amazing. I loved the story. The narration was crisp and clear. I'm looking forward to more books.

This is not my first Bridget Essex book and won't be my last. I loved it and absolutely love that it is narrated! I've listened to it twice this week! The narration by Rose Clearwater was very good and it was easy to get lost in the characters and story. I hope more of Essex's books narrated!

The story really hooks you in and makes you wish Virago would sweep you off your feet too<3

I really the way virago was portrayed but that was about it. The main character was too self involved and the supporting characters too one dimensional. I think I just expected more action since it was story about a knight, love and a beast but really the story line was mainly in the main characters head.
But I think if you are into stories that are very much 'head' and less story then it might be good. At least it is consistent in style.

After all the angst and constant description of the main character's infatuation it was great!

I debated reading this for a while but i'm really glad I did!! It gave me romance, laughs, and a few tears towards the end. Would highly recommend!
I thoght it was a really fun book. I'm not big on romances but it was sweet. and I enjoyed it.
high on romance and romantic suspense, very low on adventure. if you want romance with a very slight fantasy twist this is perfect. if you want equal parts fantasy adventure and romance....meh.
I want the latter, but I still enjoyed the book.
it about 5 and a half hours of faffing about for the main character to break up with her girlfriend . this should have happened in the first few chapters
