Book Title: Krane: Knights to Remember
Author: Nicole Colville
Release Date: August 1, 2016
At the age of thirty-seven, local giant and semi-professional rugby player, Krane Buchannan, had spent his life hiding behind a tightly locked closet door with a wife as a shield and a gut full of regrets.
Coming out may not have been his decision, but ending his marriage was. With an ugly divorce starting up and a vindictive soon to be ex-wife making his life a living hell, Krane finds his once comfortable life in the small Scottish village changed forever. Unprepared and still unwilling to admit the truth, Krane has some tough decisions to make.
For years he’d been dead inside, going through life but never actually living. He thought he’d never find that one special person, but when he meets an attractive brunette with legs to die for, Krane’s world is tipped upside down.
“I’m going to ruin you for every other man. You’re mine. I own you.”
The heat and the passion scorches them both, and in the space of a few hours, Bailey becomes much more than a one-night experience. Every touch from Bailey was branded onto his skin, forever imprinted like the intricate ink work covering him, something which couldn’t be washed off or forgotten, but worn forever.
Bailey was showing Krane how life should be.
Coming from entirely different worlds, both struggle to overcome the worries and fear of entering into the other’s life, but the searing white hot heat which builds between them with every look can’t be ignored. With hesitant steps, Krane enters into the secretive world of BDSM and Bailey cautiously re-enters the world he’s tired so hard to forget. The world outside the club.
Krane screamed power. Bailey could sense it simmering across the room and filling his lungs with his alpha aroma.
There’s a sadness which clings to Bailey and his unwillingness to open up about the dark secrets from his past makes Krane doubt everything but he’s had enough of giving up and is prepared to fight for what he wants, and what he wants is Bailey. He just has to convince Bailey to want the same thing.

Krane is Book 3 in Nicole Colville's Knights to Remember. Krane is a middle age man who is very set in his ways. He's been married to a woman for almost 20 years, he's an architect, plays rugby, hangs out with his friends, loves his family and his dogs. And he realizes that he's almost 40 years old and has settled and that neither he nor his wife is happy. Krane struggles to figure out what to do with his life and heads to London to spend time with his brother and get away from his small village. While in London, his brother Jacob (from Book 1) takes him to his members only BDSM club. While Krane is in the club, he meets sub Bailey and is entranced. Bailey had come to the club looking for Jacob but can't take his eyes off of Krane. When introduced to each other, they can't keep their hands off each other. From their first moment together, their bodies control them and they can't walk away from what they've found in each other, even if it's nothing they've been looking for.
There's a lot that needs to be said about this book, but I think the most important thing, is this book was a freaking scorching ten-alarm fire hot! Seriously, I can't even think of enough words to describe how hot this book is. The sex scenes between Krane and Bailey were burning up the pages from the instant they met and only became hotter! And seriously, Loch Krane Monster is something to be appreciated!
Now that we've gotten that out of the way... I haven't read Book 1 in this series, and you absolutely can enjoy this book without reading it, but seriously after reading this book, I think all of us should read everything Nicole writes! The characters were so well written. Krane was a giant of a man but the inside did not reflect the outside. He was a mess of insecurities and in my opinion, he took the easy way out of situations to avoid conflict. Bailey was a needy sub, who had struggled since his Dom had died. He's a school teacher for young children but felt that the only part of his life that mattered was what happened in the BDSM club. He didn't have relationships, or friendships, out of that safe area. The attraction and need that they felt for each other forced them both outside of their comfort zones, and make them evaluate what is important in their lives.
I love Krane and Bailey and their story! This book will be one that I read many times!
Nicole grew bored being a supermodel genius who worked part time for NASA, and decided to take a break from helping solve the mysteries of the universe with Stephen Hawkins to write m/m romance.
She has a loving relationship with her hubby of twenty years, and has achieved a lot in her short life considering she's only eighteen. She has fourteen dogs of all different breeds, plus twenty cats, and when she's not tending to their every need, and solving complex math problems, she loves to sew and can be often found knitting in the garden, which she maintains all by herself with her magical green fingers.
Finding time to make all of her own clothing and master the kitchen better than Gordon Ramsey, she's also a vegan domestic goddess and can often be found cooking up a storm bare foot in her kitchen.
Okay, so that's not true, especially the cooking part, though I do tend to be bare foot and I swear like Gordon does while burning my latest creation -- and I still think NASA will be getting in touch. Any day now!! *crosses fingers* I could sooo do that job because I'm so obviously awesome, but until they do...

My men are all seeking what everyone is, true love mixed with passion and their own happy-ever-after full of laughter and tears.
