Book Title - Standing By (A Knight's Tale #2)
Author - Claudia Burgoa
Publisher - Self-Published

Mitch Knight

1. Loves a good challenge

2. Never turns his back on a dare

3. Loves to create nicknames

4. Nobody cooks better than him

5. Doesn’t believe in love

When Parker Welsh sells Mitch Knight his organic restaurant, Willows, he not only gives Mitch ownership; but everything entangled with it. Including the annoying pastry chef who supplies the muffins and cupcakes.

Hayley Roth-Welsh

1. Loves To-Do Lists and Five-Year Plans

2. Has her dream job of baking sweets

3. Always tries to make others happy

4. Never seems to succeed with her family

5. Is still a virgin, waiting for love

Hayley played by her mother’s rules for the first eighteen years of her life, instead of heading to college as her family expected, she rebelled and opened a bakery, Pieces of Heaven. Her family expects her to fail and head back to school and their wish may come true once Parker sells his restaurant to the handsome, arrogant Mitchel Knight. It’s either join forces with him or lose her dream.



Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working as a CFO for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.



Everyone should know by now I'm a huge sucker for family book series.

First, we had Jake Knight in Getting By, twin to Mitchel Knight and the Knight brothers quickly hooked me.

Jake Knight is well on his way to finally marrying Emma, while Mitchel Knight is out growing his empire and staying as far away from love as he possibly can.

Haley Roth-Welsh is living part of her dream, but her family constant disapproval of her wears her down emotionally and then to top it all off she has to deal with the new owner of her brothers restaurant.

I love Mitch & Haley, Haley doesn't take Mitch's crap and their banter back and forth is just hilarious. Through their scheme to keep Mitch out of Emma's evil clutches Mitch and Haley become closer and closer, until fate takes over and steps in and everything unravels.

I love Standing By and I can't wait for the next book, Liam Knight batter up!
