A Knight Well Spent

When Rhoenne Guy de Ramhurst, Earl of Tynebury, is injured he finds himself in the hands of a beautiful woman claiming to be a healer. She tends his wounds then leaves him feeling so bewitched he can't stop thinking about her. When he finds out that his brother, and heir has kidnapped her he claims her as his own. As the woman by his side she is given control of all that is his, almost. He can't give her his name since he's bound to order whoever the King chooses. He won't give her his body because he refuses to carry on the Ramhurst curse. Can Rhoenne keep his vows when faced with the desire he feels for her?

Aislynn has been kidnapped, claimed, and now fallen in love with a man she can't have. He's honor bound to follow the King's edicts, even the one telling him whom to marry. Upon learning what will happen if he tells the King no she decides she loves him too much to cause him that much trouble and grief. So with the help of his most faithful Knight, who happens to be his best friend, she leaves though it breaks her heart to do so. She hopes someday he will forgive her, but more importantly that he'll forgive his best friend. Will he be able to look past his anger and see they acted with his best interest at heart?

This is an engaging tale of love of honor and what people would do in the name of love. The character's had depth and flaws that made them very realistic. I personally liked the Earls most trusted Knight, Sir Harold Montvale. A Knight Well Spent is truly an enjoyable read.


Book Blurb for A Knight Well Spent

Scotland 1141. A Norman king's attempt to rule the Highland clans is making his favorite knight's job difficult, indeed--and this is before a woman of mystery lays siege to the warrior's heart...

She lives to heal..

He's a giant of a man; what's more, he's the enemy. These truths should be enough to send Aislynn running far and fast from the wounded stranger in the woods. But he needs her help--and the reward he bestows changes her forever...

He fights to the kill...

Formidable knight Rhoenne Guy de Ramhurst has been "gifted" with a fiefdom--and the unenviable task of taming the rebellious Highlanders that populate it. He also has a castle full of dissidents, led by his own half brother. Yet these challenges pale in comparison with attempts to forget the healer who saved his life and captured his heart...

And one love rules them both...

Rhoenne believes a family curse places any woman he loves in mortal danger. When Aislynn is abducted by his profligate sibling, Rhoenne becomes her protector--even as he tries to resist her. But Aislynn has secrets of her own--and as deception and danger swirl ever closer around them, the truth may be their only salvation...
