The Queen's Knights
Her reign will come at a price.
Still reeling in the aftermath of sexual assault, Dr. Gwen Brennan struggles with feelings of powerlessness—until she joins the Whitewood Club’s masquerade night. There she reigns supreme, and it is only by her grace that anyone is allowed to touch her.
When a mysterious masked man steals her heart, she’s left with a choice: does she take a chance on forging a new relationship, or does she retreat into the arms of her stalwart bodyguard?
Can she have both?
Over Coming Fears
Firstly, this is the first time I’ve ever read anything from this author. And it’s DEFINITELY not going to be the last.
The Queen’s Knights is not for novices. The details and the chemistry alone will make you weak in the knees.
This book makes over coming or learning to face one’s fears and traumas. To finding true happiness will always make for a wonderful read. I am looking forward to reading more.

“Even if she can never know my identity, I want her to remember me.”
I just have to start by saying, this book was flippin’ fantastic! I adored Lance from the start. He was exactly what Gwen and Percy needed to wake them up and help them both move forward. I wonder if they would have continued to just drift along for years if he hadn’t come along. Clearly Gwen and Percy already had deep feelings for each other but it took Lance’s enthusiasm and in many ways innocence to really get things going. He turned them into a true family and I enjoyed every single moment.
I haven’t read any others in the series. It didn’t matter. What I needed to know was provided and to be honest wasn’t really that important to the story. The focus was on Gwen, her two knights and the relationship they were growing. I hated that it ended as I want more. I’m very intrigued by the small bits of information about the other trios, though, and have already purchased book one, Casey’s Secrets, with plans to read the other books in the series. This was my first book by Ophelia and I don’t know how I managed not to discover her before this, but I’m very grateful I have now.
Taking back her power
Gwen was attacked in her office and was trying to get back to herself the only way she knew how being queen for the night. Percy was there to protect her but had his own issues. It's when Lance enters the picture that the whole dynamic changes. With these two men beside her she is able to finally face what happened to her. Sometimes you have to go outside your comfort zone to get what you want and it may surprise you. This book shows that you can heal after something bad happened with the right support.
