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.

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!
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.
Whooo weee!! Now I know how sexy it is to have someone joust for one's honor!! Wow it's hot!! I loved this book!! So well written and read! Want more! A sequel is ready now -- off it go to my lady!! Great reader and fantastic imaginative story!! Well done Lady Essex!!
More action. I wanted to see what the knight could do, except kept reading about long drawn out weak, crying Holly who should have broken up with her girlfriend and clapped in her face when she said it was over, said thank God and walked away.
More action and the break up could have been better. She made Holly to weak. She should have made her stronger, especially for a knight.
She was good, wish she had a better story to tell.
I kept forwarding and still Holly kept going on and on about nothing. Wish I can get rid of this audio. I hope the second book is better.
The story was really fun and Holly reminded me of my girlfriend, but the narrator needs to pace herself. Some of the emotion of the story was lost in the quick paced reading.
"A whiney teen story"
This is possibly the worst narration I have ever had the misfortune to have listened to, I was relaxing having decided to listen to a good book, selected this, and after a few chapters which describe RenFairs and how this bookworm decided to out herself whilst still in school which wrought her menace and bullying for soo long, she decides she must immerse herself in a good book to bring to life a female Knight of honour....after a few chapters I became irate, and in doing so wondered at my mood, that's when I realised I was listening to a teenager whining on and on and on....I just suddenly felt the need to STOP! NO MORE, ENOUGH! I couldn't take any more. I don't know if the essence of irk is with the story itself or the narration, or just a poor excuse for both..
I love this story I was hooked and I just wanted to know how it end sooo good
