    “His Royal Highness King David of Scotland and Norman king is on the thrown 1141 AD Normandy occupies Scottish lands and are at war with the Scots Normans consider the Scots uncivilized and barbaricSir RHOENNE Guy de Ramhurst a knight and First Earl of Tynebury is seriously injured in a battle While attempting to return home he runs intoAISLYNN aka Lady of the Brook a Scottish maiden who’s beauty is beyond compare She attends to his wound with the constant reminder that she is a “healer” Aislynn is “marked’ by many giftsBRENT to who others call the Bastard is the Rhoenne’s brother and heir He is named High Sheriff of Tynebury when Rhoenne is absent and called to battle Brent comes uponDONALD O’Rourke attempting to take certain liberties with Aislynn Donald is a blacksmith and a man Aislynn may be forced to marry Brent kidnaps AislynnSir HAROLD Montvale also a knight is Rhoenne’s second He grew up with Rhoenne and is his ever constant companion He constantly exchanges annoying and amusing dialogue with Rhoenne His intent is to make Rhoenne think about his actions on any mattersROSIE aka Old Rosie a free women who has been with Rhoenne since birth is placed as Aislynn’s attendant Rosie carried out her duties masterfully and did so without taking any nonsense from RhoenneRICHARD 2nd younger brother to Rhoenne is a knowledgeable man that is not suited to be a knight but proves himself worthy of Rhoenne’s trustThe DONAL CLAN aka Gallgaels are considered to be the most dangerous and notorious of Scots They choose to make themselves visible to the Normans when and if they so desire Can an alliance between the Celts Gallgaels and Normans be made?ADVENTURE Forewarning of danger ensued My heart raced and I sweated bullets when 2 of the main characters were in danger The possibility of a siege and of betrayal was due to non other than a king’s edict The adventures that followed led to unexpected relationships I profusely cried when protection was given and a very painful injury resulted I also shed tears due to a death wish Arrival at the Montvale manor led to misunderstandings which eventually turned into understanding love and life think I’ll read that part againHILARIOUS Harold Montvale’s dialogue towards Rhoenne is always very funny that is when you could follow what he said and where he is going with the conversation He seems to always have the upper hand in that respect Aislynn on the other hand is curious about everything She is the typical “why baby” and can fire uestions off in rapid succession Pity should be given to whoever is caught between her and Harold dominating a conversation Then there is the problem of trying to continuously speak in your native tongue while occupying the land of Celtic language One could learn to speak a combination of the two which can cause confusion The ability to tolerate or not to tolerate alcohol is unuestionable Absolutely hilarious The author did a great job in expressing that matter Male reactions to Aislynn’s beauty is believable to the point that Rhoenne learned to uickly and stubbornly say “Nay”RECOMMENTATION From my standpoint this is a fantastic work by the author The only thing that I did not like is how she picked up the pace too much during the last few chapters It is as though she is telling the reader “whoops I’m out of time and must hurry up and finish the book” I highly recommend you reading this book and look forward to YOUR REVIEW

    Sir Rohenne is a Norman night who is trying to maintain his keep He freuently leaves his bastard born half brother in charge while defending his demesne Each time he returns he faces serfs who are angry at how tough his brother has been angry fathers who demand recompense for their stolen daughters and a general mess of a home He needs someone strong to handle his home but does not necessarily want a wife He is convinced there is a curse on his family that causes the death of any woman who bears a son into the family While recovering from an injury he encounters Aislynn who is a healer that mesmerizes him He finds that he cannot let her go but is afraid to claim her because he does not want her to suffer because of the curse Aislynn is convinced that the curse does not determine their destiny Just as they seem to becoming comfortable with each other and their love for one another a decision has to be made What is important in the end their love their loyalty to their friends and king or the safety of their people?I had a difficult time with the dialogue on this book It wasn't difficult to read but the author seemed to go out of her way to create characters that didn't get to the point when they were speaking The main characters were always beating around the bush I think this was her attempt to create sarcasm I found myself freuently rereading the scenes to make sure I was getting the mood of the conversationThe story line is well developed and the problems the hero and heroine faced were complex yet realistic The author really developed the character of Harold friend to both parties in the romance Sir Harold will do anything in support of his liege lord We are able to get inside of him as he tries to stay supportive to his friend distant from the heroine and helpful to both

    This was my second read by Jackie Ivie A Knight Well Spent has a good plot but the pace was so rough it spoiled my enjoyment of the plot I always felt as though I didn't really understand either the characters or their actionsAislynn was a foundling and now spends her time practicing her healing craft whenever she can get away from the miller family who took her in When she heals a massive knightly looking fellow of a spear wound he rewards her with a kiss The next day she's abducted by a lecherous Sassenach overlord and taken to the castle There she discovers her captor isn't the overlord his brother is And his brother is none other than the knightly looking fellow she healed Suddenly her life is no her own she's claimed by the overlordas his chatelaine and healerRhoenne won his lands by gift of the king Winning the loyalty of his subjects is much harder He's attracted to Aislynn but made a vow to never subject a woman to his family's cursedeath in childbirth But his time with Aislynn only deepens his attraction and soon he must make a choice between love and loyalty to his kingLike I said great plotbut the execution of it left me wanting

    Ah a good cliche romance novel Sometimes it's just what a girl needs Don't argue it's true And this one certainly fits the billIt's historical accurate enough to get clothing pieces named correctly and enough of the dialect down to be believably antiue which I appreciateSo let's get down to the nitty gritty Yes it's formulaic Yes yes I know I know it has a half naked man on the cover But let's face it girls we don't get that kind of romance very often in the real world right? And this one THIS one actually has a story in it Matter fact for a bodice ripping style marketing approach there was actually only one scene with bodice ripping in it and it isn't even the scene you think it isI have only one complaint which I will of course address now The author makes a little too much use of the triple dots of doom You know that dot dot dot that breaks up a phrase? But it's not too hard to get past that and after that it's a reasonably well done storyBottom line I liked the characters the story had me appropriately enthralled and the ending was satisfying A good read

    I don't know why but this was just a hard book to read The plot was a real downer but at least I finished it The usual big misunderstanding in which the hero thinks the heroine was cheating on him with his best friend but they made it look that way to save the hero but would anyone tell him the truth? No Uggh 255httpktleyedblogspotcom201109k
