From Goodreads:

A Bahamas holiday from dying billionaire JT Lance, a man with a dark secret, leads palliative nurse Rhianna McLeod to Jonathan, a man with his own troubled past, and Rhianna finds herself drawn to the handsome recluse, while unbeknownst to her, someone with a horrific plan is hunting her down.

Lancelot's LadyWhen palliative care nurse Rhianna McLeod is given a gift of a dream holiday to the Bahamas from her dying patient, billionaire JT Lance, Rhianna has no idea that her 'holiday' will include being stranded on a private island with Jonathan, an irritating but irresistibly handsome recluse. Or that she'll fall head over heels for the man.

Jonathan isn't happy to discover a drop-dead gorgeous redhead has invaded his island. But his anger soon turns to attraction. After one failed marriage, he has guarded his heart, but Rhianna's sudden appearance makes him yearn to throw caution to the wind.

To live fully in the present, Rhianna must resolve her own murky past, unravel the secret that haunts JT, foil the plans of a sleazy, blackmailing private investigator and help Jonathan find his muse. Only then can Rhianna find the love she's been searching for, and finally become...Lancelot's Lady.

My review:

Lancelot’s Lady’s blurb caught my eye on Imajin Books homepage and I really wanted to read it. Finally I got it to my Kindle for PC and was ready to read! I needed a good romance and I did not have to be disappointed. Lancelot’s Lady by Cherish D’Angelo was easy to read, a perfect book to August summer nights to devour. It was easy to read, it had solid plot and loveable characters.

Regarding the plot:

Meet Rhianna McLeod – a beautiful care nurse arriving to work for dying billionaire JT Lance. Rhianna is accepted in to the family like a long lost daughter. She is adored by JT and she sees JT as a father she never had. JT is giving Rhianna a wonderful birthday present –a trip to Bahaman Islands, to Angelina’s Island.

When Rhianna arrives to Angelina’s Island, there is no resort she expected, but the island is almost empty except for a beautiful house and gorgeous man called Jonathan with his deaf daughter and a family Atkinson who take care of the household. Jonathan is very disturbed by Rhianna’s visit but as the story develops Rhianna and Jonathan find a way to each other’s hearts. What they don’t know is that there are many obstacles waiting for them.

The story was well written, descriptions of the Angelina’s Island were colorful and captivating. The plot had several interesting turns in it and a lot of romance. They were funny situations in the book, so I also got several full hearted laughs while reading it.

Regarding the characters:

Characters were lovable and well-written. Main characters had some issues from their pasts they had to deal with and their pasts had made them into the persons they were, together with all strengths and weaknesses. The burden of secrets can be very heavy to carry and it also influenced the characters. Their stories were well described by the author.

Rhianna had a broken soul with reason – her road from her childhood to becoming a grownup had been very difficult and her past included secrets which she had to deal with. It was interesting to see her grow – as an independent and strong woman capable over fighting her most inner nightmares. She was feisty and I enjoyed that!

Jonathan did not trust Rhianna in the beginning, but the relationship between Rhianna and his daughter Misty opened Jonathan up. Jonathan realized that Rhianna was a woman he had been waiting for.

JT Lance was my definite favorite, at least looking from the perspective of his past which revealed at the very end of the story. He was so sweet with Rhianna and gave her a home – all for a reason.


Lancelot’s Lady had plenty of romance in it, captivating characters and a good plot! I enjoyed Cherish D’Angelo’s skills to wave together a good story and her writing style. It was easy to read and I did not want to put the book down before the end. Lancelot’s Lady kept the reader’s interest and offered very good entertainment.
5 Flowers!

5 stars!

Happy reading, everybody!
