  • Kissing the Kavalier, great debut book

    What a story it grabbed my interest from the first page and did not let go until I had finished reading it. Right from the start I was rooting for Lieutenant Matteo von Ritter, veteran of the Austro-Prussian war as he saves two men from the war and with himself gets them medical help behind his lines. Countess Zdenka Waldner is a strong independent woman who falls in love with Matteo. Their story will have its ups and downs as they work toward their happy ending. This is a new Author to me and it looks like this is her debut story. I want to read more by her. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful Love Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, primarily for the bold heroine, Countess Zdenka Waldner, who is willing to do whatever she must to save their family farm and to find her sister, Arabella, a decent (and wealthy) husband. The characters are likable and well-portrayed. In the story line, Zdenka pretends to be a boy so that she can properly chaperone her sister, Arabella, in the search for a husband. They meet Lieutenant Matteo von Ritter, recently back from the war, and he becomes fond of Arabella. When he needs a messenger to take his letters to her, he hires the messenger Zdenka to deliver them. She, pretending to write the letters as if they came from Arabella, keeps up the correspondence with Matteo. She ultimately falls in love with him. But then the truth comes out! Will he be offended at what she did? Will she cause a scandal? Or have they both fallen in love with each other and a HEA may be waiting for them?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Amazing historical romance

    5/5 Stars Kissing the Kavalier by Annette Nauraine This is the first book by Nauraine that I've had the pleasure of reading. She throws you back into the past and you get to see the world in a new light. Zdenka, who goes by Zdenko, is pretending to be the brother of her older sister. When Matteo recruits her to be a messenger for him things go south. She falls in love with him and she isn't supposed to. The quote I chose for Zdenka is: “I’m not eager to return to being a woman. I’ve rather come to enjoy the freedom I have as a gentleman. I can do as I please, walk about unescorted, ride when and where I please.” Matteo is a soldier who returns home after the battle. He doesn't remember much because he was taken down. When he meets Zdenka's older sister things change. He recruits her brother to play messenger and falls in love. Little does he know he's writing Zendka. The quote I chose for Matteo is: “I only returned last night. I had to at least clean up before I made an appearance. Nice of you to invite so many of the returned soldiers.” Highly recommended for Historical Romance lovers.

  • Endearing

    Annette Nauraine’s “Kissing The Kavalier” is a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed. This is a new author to me but one I would seek out in the future. Countess Zdenka Waldner is tasked with chaperoning Arabella, Zdenka masquerades as her younger brother in order to help her older sister find a husband and hopefully get the family out of debt. Lieutenant Matteo von Ritter, veteran of the Austro-Prussian war, vows to spend his life caring for his injured men. He’s a man of honor suffering from PTSD. I was immediately drawn into this well written, engaging story with its rich descriptions, interesting plot and wonderful characters. I was captivated by Zdenka’s plight and impressed by her willingness to do whatever it took for her family. It’s a story of love, for family, fellow man and romantic love that comes unexpectedly. It was a wonderful tale of two people who find their way to one another despite their circumstances. Thank you so much Ms. Nauraine for this endearing story of love.

    Thanks for your feedback!
