From the New York Times bestselling author of the Wind Dragons and Cursed Ravens MC series comes sinners, saints and secrets…
Five years. That’s a long time to go without talking to somebody, especially someone who was such a huge part of your life…
A letter from my first kiss and my childhood everything…from prison.
He may be nicknamed Saint, but this sweet, sexy biker most definitely has a wild streak. Hearing from him draws me right back into the Knights of Fury motorcycle club—the people I’ll always think of as family.
He’s still the only man I’ve ever wanted.
Each good, old-fashioned letter from my “prison pen pal” has my heart racing. Which is nothing compared to how I feel when Saint surprises me in person, as a free man.
I was just a kid the last time we saw each other, but the connection between us now is anything but innocent.
He’s the type of man who would do anything to protect his woman. And with my world crashing down around me, that’s exactly what I’m going to need.

This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.
The Knights of Fury is the latest series from Chantal Fernando and I will have to say that this book SWEPT me away in a way that I actually didn’t expect. I have always enjoyed this author’s writing style, but there was something so different about this one here. And I couldn’t seem to get enough of it here. This book seemed to be packed with so many page turners and I really just wanted more and more of it. There was so much warmth and affection in this story that I didn’t see happening especially at the beginning of a MC romance. That is such a rarety and yes of course it has some angst involving some members of the supporting cast of the story. But such a charming and sweet romance that builds between these two main characters.
The Saint begins with Skylar, who found the people she called “family” but then something horrible happened and she and her family were split for years but now she is finding her way back to the home she has always known and finding her place with the man she has always saved her heart for…Saint. Saint is a member of the Knights of Fury MC, and he is completely devoted to his brothers, but his feelings for Skylar are completely his own and he will do anything to protect her and see that she is safe and happy but they have some enemies…and these enemies could destroy everyone they care about….
I will have to say this story was such a roller coaster but I had such a blast in the reading of it, and this author definitely knows how to surprise me because I didn’t see this style of a romance to come with this theme. But I am down for it because I love these stories, most especially in the MC world that shock you with such fun delights and Fernando definitely did that for me with this one here. What I found most interesting was the villain of the story, and I can say she is one piece of work and you especially see the “toxic femininity” in this woman and Skylar is a woman of patience and grace to deal with her as she does. I love that when it gets down to it, Skylar goes after the family that she truly wants and will fight for them in her life. Skylar has a sweet determination to carve her own path and even though she is on the road of self discovery, she doesn’t deny the value of love in her life and embraces those sweet moments.
The romance between Saint and Skylar is beyond impressive, I was drawn to them writing letters to each other, and seeing Saint want Skylar but not cross the boundary beyond friendship until she is mature enough. They start out as friends and so you definitely see that strong bond throughout the story here, As they begin to connect on a deeper level that builds with a more sexual focus, the blend of friendship bonds and sweet smexy times offers such a great mixture in this romance that will satisfy any of your romantic moods.
Overall I found The Saint to be a spectacular beginning to a new start of a series that I am more than ready to get more of. I found Saint to be a stunning, deeply real in the portrayal of family bonds and emotion within the limits of the romance….satisfying real in every way.
