Ready for battle, Medieval English knight, Stephen Palmer, charges into the French enemy’s cavalry line. Heeding a warning given months before, he hesitates as he comes face-to-face with the knight in the warning. Struck down in the year 1356, he finds himself landing in the year 2013. Grievously wounded, he’s taken to a nearby hospital. Confused by the new world surrounding him, he attempts to convince the staff he’s from another time, only to find they think him mad. 

Rescued by friends, who, to his surprise, have also come through time, he must find a way to function in this odd modern England. He is quickly enchanted by the kind Esme Crippen, the young woman hired to tutor him. She too is enchanted by him. Tempted to deepen the relationship, she hesitates thinking him adorable, but mad. He must discover the means for getting her to believe the truth, all the while, unknown to him, he didn’t come forward in time alone. The enemy knight has also traveled to 2013.

French noble, Roger Marchand, doesn’t question why the English knight who charged him hesitated. That fraction of a pause gave him the advantage needed and he brought his sword down upon the Englishman’s helmet hard, unhorsing the knight. He moved to finish the Englishman off when the world changed in a rush of sensations as he is ripped through time. 

Seeking a reason for the terrible event, he enters a nearby chapel. There, thinking God has chosen him for a quest to turn French defeat that day in 1356 to victory, he sets out to find the English knight. The man he is convinced holds the key to time. If he returns to the day of the battle, he can warn his king of mistakes that snatched victory from them.

My Review:
The way Stephen and Roger describe and react to the things they hear, see and have to deal with in 2013 is so funny. You never consider what a person seeing a road, or toilet for the first time will wonder or think because they are just normal for us.  I almost snorted coke out my nose when Stephen described the hospital room thinking he was in a dungeon and the repetitious chirp he heard form the was heart monitor was like a bird being poked again and again LOL.
Poor Stephen is blinded by his helmet and dumped into present day 2013.  He not only must learn to accept that he has traveled through time but he also must deal with it as a blind knight who knows nothing but battle.  How is he going to function and survive in his challenging situation?  Can he get back to his own time?  Does he really want to go back? Read it and find out what happens and if Stephen finds his happy ever after. 
If you love a Knight in shining armor and a great love story with humor sprinkled you you will adore Knight Blindness.  I recommend this to everyone who loves romance.
I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books.

My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa. 

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream. I write two different series. My paranormal romance series is called, Knights in Time. My romantic thriller series is, Dangerous Waters. 

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, four rescue dogs and a rescue horse.
