The story begins with Aria who finds herself at a bar to retrieve her precious sketchbook (though it’s not the sketchbook that is special but what is inside). Everything goes south from there when she is caught in a crossfire and taken captive by a guy named Romano who trades her off to our supposed male lead, Carter Cross. Aria hopes to be saved, will her believed savior and captor show her mercy or will she submit to his every command?

The Knight Before Christmas follows the developing love story of a medieval Knight Cole who is transported in the future to complete his quest. He crosses paths with a skeptical teacher Brooke who provides him shelter and helps him adjust to the current time (believing he’s hit his head hard to have amnesia and be acting he’s from the 14th century), all the while falling in love with one another.

Hello, It’s been a while!
I apologize for not being able to blog lately. Life has been kind of busy, added that I’m finally graduating college!
I just wanted to catch up with you all. How are you doing? Deeply sorry that I haven’t been blogging or reviewing any books. I have been binge-watching a couple of shows lately though, maybe I’ll do some movie reviews, what do you all think? Lately I’ve been obsessed with Walking Dead and yes, I am 10 seasons late, but hey at least I am 6 seasons in and stalling on watching the rest because *spoiler alert* I know Glenn gets killed off in the next season and want to keep him alive a little longer (lol!)
Anywho, if you lovely peeps haven’t already been following me on Twitter and Instagram, I’m pretty much easy to catch there rather than my personal blog. If you would like to keep up my randomness, Twitter is your best bet to get in touch with me and don’t be afraid to drop by and say hello.
Some updates just to get us all back on track:
