White Knight by CD Reiss Blog Tour

From New York Times Bestseller CD Reiss...

Catherine's long-lost love is found

Catherine Barrington is a rich girl. Chris Cartwright is a poor boy.

He left her to make something of himself. A man she could be proud of. A man she could bring home to her parents. A man she could marry.
On the trading floor he became the man he knew he could be. Now, it’s time to return.

Rich girl.
Poor boy.

She didn’t care about his money, but he didn’t believe her. Soon after he left, all the money was gone.
Her life is hell.

Now he’s back, and he’s different. Pristine. Gorgeous. Rich.

Rich boy.
Poor girl.

Money was never the barrier, until now.

White Knight is a standalone in the same world as King of Code, with its own beginning, middle, and end. You don't need to read anything else to read White Knight.

I crossed the train tracks, looking both ways as if the freight ran on a thoroughfare. It was a few steps to the rows of mobile homes that defined that side of Barrington.

The playground was in a little clearing just west of the center of the trailers. My fingertips were cold, but the rest of my body thrummed and pulsed so hard that I made my own heat. I told myself I didn’t know what to expect from this meeting, but if I didn’t know what to expect, I knew what to hope, and they were pretty much the same thing.

“Catherine!” Chris wasn’t loud, but the excitement in his voice made him sound as if he were shouting.

“Chris?” I spun around, looking for him in the darkness.

And on a three-quarter turn, he crashed into me, all lips and hands, digging his fingertips into the muscles of my back as he pulled me close. I tasted the minty toothpaste in his mouth and thought he brushed his teeth for me. He kissed me as if he would never kiss me again. He kissed me as if this was the last kiss he would ever have in his life. As if he wanted to eat me alive. I’d given over my freedom and my choice to this thing with him, to this moment, to this stupid set of choices that would ruin me forever. As surely as the sun would rise, I was the designer of my own destruction.

I wanted to be destroyed by that kiss.

When Chris took my hand, I imagined I could feel the blood pulsing through the veins, the cells in his skin. I imagined that when my nerve endings vibrated at his touch, they connected to his somehow.

Everything felt new. I was discovering that my body had routes between one place and another that I never knew existed. I never knew that when a man touched my hand or kissed my nipples, I could feel it between my legs.

There was a click behind the tree line, and he stopped kissing me with a jerk. We froze long enough for him to smile.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The second book in the same realm with King of Code, but certainly can be as a standalone, although I liked having the story on Harper, the genius sister, and all the other small town, crazy side characters.

Catherine is the big sister who gave up her life to help the town that needed her. Now that her sister is finally finding her own happiness and the town is starting to get back on its feet, Catherine is left feeling alone and unneeded. She's been dormant since the boy she gave her virginity to left her at 16 to make something of himself. Christopher, taking the words of Catherine's parents so long ago after being caught together intimately, has gone to New York to try to become something worthy of their daughter. Thirteen years has gone by and he's never contacted her, never came back for her. What is Catherine waiting for? When she gets a letter from Christopher out of the blue, that he's coming into town to bury his dog and wants to see her, she doesn't know where this should go.

These two characters have had so much pain and suffering. Missed moments and life gone by, it's almost hard to see them try to get reacquainted! So much has gone by unsaid, unknown. Their reunion is so very bittersweet. It's sad and it's romantic and it's flowery and full of sweet sentiment. White Knight is really just a sweetly told love story of two destined souls finally finding each other again after so long apart. Both characters coming into their own and finding their together. Sweet and soulful and full of feels, my heart was full.

Also set in the American Royalty Universe

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
