Gifted writer J.M. Stewart has outdone herself with Her Knight In Black Leather! Her character’s are damaged but show great strength. Micheal is super sexy in his black leather and his hard exterior, but on the inside he is thoughtful and sensitive. While Cat at first appears to be a wall flower, she quickly opens up and shows great courage and tenacity. Together Cat and Micheal have chemistry that is combustible. I highly recommend this outstanding book to all romance lovers who are looking for a deeply satisfying read. This is a Harlequin Junkie top pick! Kudos to Ms. Stewart!
