A war has been waged on Earth for millennia, good and evil fight for the very souls existing there. The Illuminati spread chaos, assisting in evil’s cause, profiting from the death and destruction. Gaia chooses not to stand idly by, so she saves a handful of Templar Knights to be her protectors, to help keep the balance level.
Matthias and Nicolas are hardened warriors on a mission to bring down their foe when specially engineered bullets stop them in their tracks. They’re left for dead and brought to the ER, where their special regeneration causes an eyebrow to lift.
Britt has always had a special power she’s hidden from the world. She’s been imbued with a talent for healing others. When two hulking men come into her ER with gunshot wounds, she finds their wounds perplexing, but she’s thrown for a loop when touching them makes her gift go haywire.
Review: Take two medieval hunky knights, add a bit of time travel and a modern woman with some supernatural skills, and you’ve got the recipe for an interesting paranormal story. Toss in plenty of passion and you’ve got Alexandra O’Hurley’s novel titled Two Knights of Indulgence.
Templar knights Matthias and Nicolas are hot on the trail of the dreaded Illuminati when they encounter Britt. She’s a nurse, but she is equipped with some healing qualities that even she doesn’t understand. Regardless, the two knights vow to keep her safe after an encounter with the enemy.
While Britt is coming to terms with her skills, she is fighting an attraction to the men. In her mind, there is no need to choose just one. Be prepared for some hot ménage actions as the three deal with all kinds of supernatural dilemmas.
I didn’t realize that this was part of a series until I got to the end. While I didn’t have any problems reading this as a stand-alone novel, my preference is to always start at the beginning.
The two knights provide an interesting contrast because of their personalities. They’ve been brothers in arms for centuries, yet their biggest challenge is in the bedroom where three just might be a crowd.
My curiosity has been piqued by this installment of the series. I’ll add the next book to my TBR pile and see what author Alexandra O’Hurley has in store for this merry band of travelers.
