Feature Post – An Introduction to Elisabeth Hobbes and Her Rogue Knight

Posted on

Elisabeth grew up in York where she spent most of her teenage years wandering around the city looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep her off her feet. Sadly it never happened but Elisabeth developed a love of the past and went on to read History and Art History at university before venturing into the world of teaching.

These days Elisabeth hold’s down jobs as a teacher and mum and she has strong views on SPaG and the National Curriculum.

Elisabeth lives in Cheshire with her husband, two young children and two cats with ridiculous names because the car broke down there in 1999 and she never left.

Elisabeth has a love of historical fiction and has a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes. When she’s not writing, she spends a lot of her spare time reading and has become something of a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book!

Elisabeth fondness of ginger mojitos and Thai hot and sour soup, though not at the same time.

You can find Elisabeth hanging around The Unlaced Book Club on Facebook along with other Harlequin Historical authors.

Elisabeth loves hearing from her readers so why not check out the links below.

The spy who sought refuge…

When injured spy Sir Roger Danby comes asking for shelter at her inn, Lucy Carew is wary. He may be strikingly handsome, but the disgraced single mother has learnt the hard way with men like him. Against her better judgement, she gives him refuge.

Sir Roger has never been at the mercy of a woman before, and he’s never met one as mysterious and bewitching as Lucy. He hasn’t come looking for redemption, but Lucy is a woman who could reach in and touch his closely guarded heart…

The Review Sister Thought’s

Amy’s Thoughts

I confess I didn’t think this knight was redeemable – boy was I wrong. I went from completely loathing him to cooing and swooning all over him
Roger and Lucy’s story is tender whilst being passionate.
A story of finding true love in the most unexpected place and being stronger because of that love. The writing is clever and witty! Redeeming the Rogue Knight has truly confirmed that medieval romance rocks – read it, you won’t be disappointed!
5/5 stars from me!
Alison’s Thoughts
This is the first medieval romance that I have read and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I have to say that I really did enjoy it!
Roger is a Knight on a mission from the King when he gets ambushed and injured. Lucy is a single mother running an Inn and trying desperately to make ends meet. When Thomas her brother arrives with Roger and leaves him in his sister’s care. Lucy does not like Roger on sight and certainly does not trust him! But after spending time with him are her feelings changing towards him and is Roger becoming a better person around Lucy than he has done in the past?
Can they both put their past mistakes behind them and create a future together? Very well written with a great storyline.
Would definitely recommend!
Frankie’s Thoughts
I read it as a stand alone, the story does very much revolve around Roger and Lucy so it’s an easy and highly enjoyable read. This is glorious, the detail of everything about the era is breath-taking, Hobbes has created this superb and compelling story and she has backed it up with intricately detailed historic fact.
This is what I really like about Hobbes, her writing is raw and real. It is the language in particular that the characters use that I really like, it is very normal and of the age. There isn’t any dithering about with polite small talk, it’s always straight to the point and like Roger himself hugely blunt, and I absolutely love it.
It is sharp and precise, from the language right down to details of the joust. It’s an highly charged tale of finding love in the most unexpected places, it is thrilling and emotional.

Another great read that I cannot recommend enough

Gwessie’s Thoughts

Knowing some of my friends had recommended this book to me, I was delighted to be offered the honour of reading it, I can honestly say that I have not read a huge number of medieval romances but the ones I have read, including this I absolutely adore, I will most definitely be collecting more of Elisabeth’s books this is the first of Elisabeth’s books I’ve read it certainly won’t be the last.

As always I will not give spoilers as its not fair to the author or possible new readers that is what blurbs are for. I can tell you I am most definitely addicted to medieval as well, just haven’t had the chance to read alot of them this I believe is my 5th possibly 6th medieval romance. I will definitely be collecting more especially this lovely author. Elisabeth can write a full roller coaster of emotions beautifully,which can have you weeping one minute with one character, to giggling the next with another, I was able to connect with the story and characters very much so.

Definitely highly recommend this book.

Shell’s Thoughts

This is the second book that I have read of Elisabeth’s, and she promised me that I would like this book more than the The Saxon’s Outlaw Revenge, for a introduction to Medieval romances it was a bit gory. Well not only do I like this book I love it, and can’t wait to read more.

The characters are wonderful, Lucy is strong well she has to be being a single mother to a little boy, and Roger who has his own troubles but finds he likes being with Lucy and her son. They have their own conflicts with each other, and at the end have there own happy ending.

I will give this book 5/5 stars and I can highly recommend this book. Also Elisabeth you have given me such joy in reading this book.
