Pepper attends a jousting competition and falls in love with her very own knight in shining armor. Then she gets to ditch her official wench costume and don armor herself.

You either like Katie MacAlister's books or you don't. I do. I like her humor, her heroines, and the incredible supporting characters she comes up with. Her books are fun, light reads. ( )

I absolutely loved the whole Renaissance Faire setting and Pepper's character was hilarious. She's blunt and the dialog with her and Walker is great. Also, I loved Moth, the cat Pepper toted around with her all over the faire. I would've liked to see more about the other aspects of the Renaissance Faire aside from the jousting, but it was understandable that MacAlister didn't venture off too far with her writing into the other areas of the faire. At the end there were a few things I felt were left unresolved, but not as much as in The Corset Diaries. ( )

It's light, it's fluffy... Girl meets handsome man at a Renaissance Faire and he is, literally, her knight in shining armor. Yes, it's hokey, yes, there is a totally ridiculous love story mixed in along with jousting. Dorky at best, but I still giggled aloud at least enough to give it a 3 star rating. ( )

Men in tights never looked so good. At least that's Pepper Marsh's first impression when she attends a jousting competition at the Renaissance Faire in Ontario. An unemployed and unattached software engineer, Pepper has had enough of the computer geeks in her dating pool. She yearns for a man of yore. A man not afraid to stare death in the face . . . and laugh at it. A man with a big lance . . . Pepper's cousin has promised to find her a knight in shining armor, on the condition that Pepper walk around in wench garb. With her mind on her embarrassingly revealing bodice, Pepper promptly steps into the path of an oncoming steed . . . and is rescued by sexy Englishman Walker McPhail. Once the wild man of jousting, Walker has let a brush with death keep him out of the ring. Though his emotions are clad in almost impenetrable armor, Pepper finds Walker infuriatingly sexy-and she's about to go medieval on his heart.… (more)
