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.
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.
Money was never the barrier, until now.

READ AN EXCERPT:
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.
5 Stars from Tiffany!
Short, but oh so Sweet
C.D. Reiss has been on my radar since 2013 and her last few books have shown why. Whether it's Songs of Submission, Hardball or Separation Games, the girl can write a book! Plus the details. Every one of her stories is chock full of so much detail, you feel you can apply for the job her character currently holds. White Knight is no different.
I read King of Code last year, so was familiar with Catherine already and definitely interested in how Chris came into her life. Catherine had a strong front for her towns people all of the time. Only her younger sister Harper knew she cried herself to sleep every night. The state of the town, her life and the love she lost long ago plagued her dreams.
"I'd been one kind of boy and another kind of man."
Christopher Charmichael was the typical boy from the wrong side of the tracks that found himself in love with the girl that lives in the mansion. He worked at her country club and finally in her mother's garden, getting even closer to the beautiful Catherine. Chris couldn't get enough of her, however knew he needed to be more, so he left her.
Ten years go by. Catherine is still single-handedly trying to save her town and Chris is still trying to figure out who he is without her. A tragedy brings him home and things will never be the same. They are grown ups, that have grown apart. Only thier hearts didn't get the message, so it's time to figure things out together.
"My now wants your now. Come forward with me."
The book is well written and while you don't have to read King of Code first, I'm glad I did. As a bonus, there are King and Prince Charming chapters at the end of White Knight, that will suck you right in!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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.
