Publisher's Summary

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.

Love the book and narration

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!

Not bad but not my cup of tea

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.

Realistically Magical

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

Hold still so I can stab you

I know this is going to come off very negative, but I think it's important to set up expectations. For anyone hoping to read about sword fights: this isn't the book for you. The beast appears early on, then disappears until the very end. So do they start the search for the man-eating beast before it eats too many people? Of course!....after a few pit stops to the mall to buy a suit and getting some espresso. But then once they know where the beast is, they fight it right? Well....after a slight detour to go on a date. The story is really about Holly's thoughts and feelings. She's insecure about herself, and we follow her as she thinks about what to do about Virago. The romance is a little lacking. The entire story takes place over just a few days. Holly (who's in a dead-end relationship) becomes infatuated with the mysterious knight, not knowing if Virago likes her back. Then at the end, they get together and somehow become soul-mates.

With expectations set, there are some good parts. There's a cute scene where the couple teaches mc's dog a few tricks. And who doesn't like a girl who gets engaged at the library and loses track of time? Virago's reaction to the magic staircase suggests she might have gone to school at Hogwarts. The narrator did a great job expressing mc's emotions, and added a few effects for speaking over the intercom and whatnot.

I would like my heros to be less... whiny.. the beginning was relatable. I'm a lot like Holly.

obviously, I'll be reading/listening top more books. I love this stuff

CAUTION: Took me 4+ months to get through it?! eh!

I struggled to finish this one it took me 4+ months doing no more than an hour a sitting because I couldn't stand listening longer. it has one or two cute moments but I feel like this audiobook from story to narration was so average I mean I love Virago she is totally my type but their just wasn't enough interesting things happening or written in an interesting enough way. It's all made me rethink investing in the second book of the series. I strongly suggest caution with works by Bridget Essex I own 5 of her books and out of them only Sullivan Vampire Chronicles didn't leave a sour taste afterwards infact Sullivan Vampire Chronicles vol 1 was so well done I was dumbstruck open-mouthed in love I can't wait for vol 2 lol.

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..
