Wicked Knight is an utterly engrossing start to the Knight’s Ridge Empire series; I was glued to my kindle until I finished every single word.
Stella is an American, and after years of moving around the country, her father has decided to make another move, this time to the United Kingdom. She doesn’t expect them to stay long, but she soon discovers that secrets are being kept, lies are being told, and she appears to be the one left in the dark.
Stella is no damsel in distress; she is fierce, capable, and daring. There are many strong female protagonists in the novels I’ve read, but Stella’s character stood out from the crowd. She had no reservations about putting those around her in their place. Those around her aren’t what they seem, and some have her in their crosshairs, just waiting for the moment they can shatter her.
Sebastian is a complete alpha-hole; he commands any room he walks into, he’s cocky, and he has a darkness about him that should make girls fear him, but instead draws them in like a magnet. To the chagrin of all the girls at Knight’s Ridge, once he sets his sights on Stella, all the others vanish.
Sebastian and Stella’s relationship is tumultuous, with intense fluctuations from one moment to the next. His vicious intent and malicious words are hypnotic when juxtaposed with her fervid sass and willingness to use her knowledge of self-defense to knock him or anyone else down a few pegs. As they battle with words and bodies, you become mesmerized, heightening the potent chemistry they share.
Wicked Knight is an enthralling introduction to the world of Knight’s Ridge. A mind-boggling combination of a wickedly dark alpha-hole, a fierce heroine, witty banter, a labyrinth of dark secrets, evil-intentions, extra spicy steam, and that’s just the beginning. This is my new favorite Tracy Lorraine book, and it is unquestionably a top read for 2021.
