One Hot Knight by Christy Gissendaner
Yves Sucat was a Crusader trapped in a canine body…until a beautiful twenty-first century dog groomer offered the missing link to break his spell. But Regina Patterson was no fluffy-headed female who would instantly melt at Yves' silvery seduction. The more time he spent with the tender-hearted blonde, the less he was able to keep his paws—hands!—off of her.
Regina was much more comfortable with dogs than men, and the stunningly handsome – stunningly male – knight who now shared her apartment was no exception. She’d hoped to find a man as loyal as the pooches she pampered day after day, but would Yves’s broken curse end with her own broken heart?
Yves has been trapped as a dog for around 900 years. He made a witch angry over a misunderstanding and was curse to be a dog. All that changes when Regina who loves dogs takes him in and puts a magic collar on him. Now she is faced with a naked very sexy man and Yves is faced with trying to convince her to help him. As they try to figure out how to break the curse permanently things heat up between them. Even if Regina resist wanting Yves. After all she knows men are dogs this one just really was a dog before she knew it was a man underneath.
Yves is from a different time period and has some adjustments to make. He is sexy, charming and really is a knight wanting to protect people. Regina doesn't trust easy and is more comfortable with the canines she loves. You get to see her open up the more she is around Yves. She can be sweet, funny but definitely isn't a morning person. She also has a few sides you would never guess as you read the book you find out more. At first I didn't like her to much but she grew on me as I saw more sides of her. Yves had me from the start.
If you are looking for a lighter paranormal romance book this is the one. It has a great plot and the characters are a lot of fun to get to know. Yves really gives me a few laughs as he figures out more about what this time period is. He knows some from being a dog but clothes still confuse him and I love the dressing room scene with him. I will say this book has a few twist I don;t see coming as they try to fix Yves curse. The author did a great job as I did not expect them. Another great thing Regina doesn't jump right in bed with Yves. So many times now you see females or males in books jump right together the first day they meet. Not these two they actually get to know each other a little first. It does have steamy scenes to enjoy so no worries! I recommend this to all who enjoy light love stories with some steamy scenes, paranormal lovers, or just anybody wanting to read a good book.
