    I picked this off the library shelf next to some other medieval books I ve been reading and didn t know anything about it It was an okay story, and definitely lots of fluff which I was in the mood for which is why I kept skimming to the end But it definitely is a category adult romance as the characters have moderately descriptive sex after fighting their principled reasons why they shouldn t for the first half of the book Yet they still hold to other principles for the rest of the book I me I picked this off the library shelf next to some other medieval books I ve been reading and didn t know anything about it It was an okay story, and definitely lots of fluff which I was in the mood for which is why I kept skimming to the end But it definitely is a category adult romance as the characters have moderately descriptive sex after fighting their principled reasons why they shouldn t for the first half of the book Yet they still hold to other principles for the rest of the book I mean, really I m not even going to get into why a character s principles are so important to them that they fight against the ripping of clothes off their bodies and getting it on from the 2nd chapter, but then all of a sudden in the 14th chapter they are taken by surprise when the deed is done and their principles aren t even considered any I just come to expect that from these kinds of books The thing that bugged me about this story was mainly from the male main character He is a Templar Knight and a lay monk who breaks his monastic vow of chastity but then still doesn t feel like he can offer to marry the girl because he is still bound by his vows Then he goes to see the abbot or priest or whatnot and is told that because he s a lay monk that his eternal salvation is not compromised by being released from his vows and marrying So now the knight is okay with committing to marry the girl and caring for the baby she is now going to have If the religious guy hadn t said it was okay then would he have left her and the illegitimate child to their own care and protection If yes, then that s a stupid character If no, then why not commit to her and your kid but also explain that you need to set it right with the religious guy and face the consequences of it all Also, he pretty much broke his vows before going to see the religious guy I mean, you either keep vows or you don t keep them there s not a lot of in between there and I m pretty sure this guy didn t three separate times But until the religious head officially released him, he was still concerned about the state of his soul with God I think he should have been concerned after breaking the vows the first time, or the second time, or even the third time The logic of all this just doesn t work for me which is why romance novels are not taken seriously, at least for me

    I struggled with my thoughts about this book So much so, that I had to make a pro con list to sort everything out Here s what I came up with Pros easy read paced well made me laugh atthan a few points I almost fell off the treadmill I was laughing so hard strong heroine she didn t wait to be rescued not sure she thought she needed rescuing and was pretty set on rescuing her father whether anyone was helping her or notCons not a comedy book while I loved her name, it was Iri I struggled with my thoughts about this book So much so, that I had to make a pro con list to sort everything out Here s what I came up with Pros easy read paced well made me laugh atthan a few points I almost fell off the treadmill I was laughing so hard strong heroine she didn t wait to be rescued not sure she thought she needed rescuing and was pretty set on rescuing her father whether anyone was helping her or notCons not a comedy book while I loved her name, it was Irish Now, it s entirely possible her mother who was dead years before the story started could have been Irish, but there s no mention of it and that s not the impression I got he kept calling her ma chere He was Scottish I get that he spent time in other places and could have picked it up somewhere, but the Scots have some beautiful endearments and it baffled me why he didn t use some of them she was perfect The term Mary Sue kept popping into my head One lesson with a sword during which she was preoccupied with his body against hers that she could barely hold and she was able to wield it and fight off seasoned warriors he was perfect Is there a male version of Mary Sue After escaping from his torture hung over a pit with spikes whipped he faced 40 armed soldiers and, except for those SHE took out, managed to bestthan half of them The other half, he bested by breaking the floor While standing in the middle of the room With half the band of soldiers between him and the door And still managed to escape No lie For the record, while reading this rescue fight scene is when I nearly fell off the treadmill Yes, it s a fluffy read Yes, it has serious REALLY moments Still, I found it to be an amusing read that easily kept my attention while I was on the treadmill

    I saw this book recommended on Goodreads and because I m a fan of Scotland middle ages historical fiction, I decided to give it a try I have to say, the first half of the book captured my attention, even if one or two details seemed a bit unrealistic For example, William is severely wounded when he has to fight a lot of opponents at the same time, he can barely walk after he s rescued by his fellow Templars, his wounds have to be sewn with just one cup of ale as anesthetic and fifteen minutes I saw this book recommended on Goodreads and because I m a fan of Scotland middle ages historical fiction, I decided to give it a try I have to say, the first half of the book captured my attention, even if one or two details seemed a bit unrealistic For example, William is severely wounded when he has to fight a lot of opponents at the same time, he can barely walk after he s rescued by his fellow Templars, his wounds have to be sewn with just one cup of ale as anesthetic and fifteen minutes later he s walking about as if nothing had happened And in the next day he s fit to mount, then travel of foot and even climb from the bottom of a pit while carrying an unconscious Siobhan I know medieval knights were tough, but they were still human.I was prepared to overlook these details because I was getting kind of engrossed in the story But half way through the book, William and Siobhan finally discover the cave where the treasure of the Templars is hidden And then the description turns into a perfect imitation of and Indiana Jones movie If I was already having doubts before, this settled it not realistic at all After that, I sort of lost interest in the story and just read it through to reach the complimentary happily ever after Apparently there are threebooks in this series, but I don t think I ll be reading them anytime soon So, though I liked the accurate historical references at the end of the book and while the writing and the plot are not entirely bad, this is clearly a read if you have time but don t expect do be awed book I did love the cover, and the detail of how the name of the author is writtenIf you enjoy medieval Scottish romances, I would suggest Monica McCarty s highland guard series instead

    Sheltered and secluded with only her father for company for all long as she can remember, the heroine has always craved adventure like in the stories her father tells her But she didn t mean for her life to change so drastically so quickly In the span on a few minutes, her father is kidnapped, her home is burnt to the ground and she s now on the run from men who want to possess the treasure her father had given to her for safe keeping Then her hero comes out of the darkness on a white steed a Sheltered and secluded with only her father for company for all long as she can remember, the heroine has always craved adventure like in the stories her father tells her But she didn t mean for her life to change so drastically so quickly In the span on a few minutes, her father is kidnapped, her home is burnt to the ground and she s now on the run from men who want to possess the treasure her father had given to her for safe keeping Then her hero comes out of the darkness on a white steed and pledges to see her and her father safe upon his word as Templar The hero is tormented by guilt and loss He s bore witness to so much death that it s turned him inside out He s a harsh and stern man who s only purpose in life is the Templars, but even now his brethren has been branded heretics and forced into hiding But he can still do his duty Though his duty has never before come in such a temping package as the heroine With her he confides all his deepest darkness secrets and fears as he feels such a connection with the girl Truly, they did seem to be so in tune with one another as they travers the mountain side seeking the hiding place of the Mythical and powerful Spear of Destiny Desire and passion runs hot between them and try as he might, the hero finds it near impossible to remain true to his vows All he s ever had was his vows and the Templars but she makes him want for somethingA family, a wife and children and the chance at love She makes him want to renounce his vows and become a man As they first fight the maze that leads to the hidden resting place where her father secured the treasures, then battling to stop a mad man from using the spear for evil deeds, the hero must decide what he truly wants in life and fight for it with everything he has This book was styled after an action flick but set in historical Scoltand This is mainly because of the intense and fantastical battles the hero finds himself in frequently Battling 14 men here while severely wounded Climbing a mountain while trying to recover from said wounds as well as the heroine having a concussion And lastly, fighting off 40 men with a dagger and suffering from whipping marks It was crazy and so unbelievable it was almost comically Yet regardless of this 100% inaccurate portrayal of life as this period in time, I did rather enjoy this book I found it to be easy to read and it had a certain type of smooth fluidity about it I adored the hero I found him to be charming and tortured and sweet He has had such a hard life yet with the heroine he s able to smile onceand be happy again I enjoyed the heroine but some of her actions proved to be so incredibly stupid She did flip flop from being this easy going girl who listened to the strong knight and took directions well, to just suddenly throwing herself into danger on a whim I found their romance to be believable and rather sweet and therefore the over the top kill bill action sequences were bearable

    I really liked this medieval romance it s fast paced, has a fun adventure quest, Scottish knights, plus a finely detailed setting and background Sir William Keith is one of the four surviving Scottish Templar Knights who had been charged to go on Crusade, taking the heart of Robert the Bruce as a talisman, to fulfill the Bruce s dying wishes But the knights are destroyed in battle, even though the Bruce s heart was supposed to have kept them safe William returns to Scotland haunted by survivo I really liked this medieval romance it s fast paced, has a fun adventure quest, Scottish knights, plus a finely detailed setting and background Sir William Keith is one of the four surviving Scottish Templar Knights who had been charged to go on Crusade, taking the heart of Robert the Bruce as a talisman, to fulfill the Bruce s dying wishes But the knights are destroyed in battle, even though the Bruce s heart was supposed to have kept them safe William returns to Scotland haunted by survivor s guilt, but he determines to remain faithful to his vows as a Templar Knight, even though the order has been outlawed in Europe, the members hunted as heretics.The zealot de la Roche has ambitions to destroy the remains of the order and steal the treasure the Templar Knights protect holy relics including a spear that he believes will give him great power He fears what the Templar Knights would do with such power, and vows to take it from them.Realizing the danger, William seeks out the guardian of the treasure, and finds him already captured, but his daughter, Siobhan, has eluded the captors She doesn t trust William at first, but he takes her to safety at a monastery he trusts, where the monks help them translate her father s surviving scroll with clues to where the treasure is hidden Siobhan agrees to help William find the treasure and in return, William will help her find and free her father.During their quest for the treasure, William finds himself strongly attracted to Siobhan, and she to him But William has taken monk s vows, and Siobhan knows that The push pull of their passion makes for nice tension.William is a finely drawn, complex character of conflicting motivations He d been raised by monks, but spent time at the court of Robert the Bruce, learning of life outside the monastery walls before taking vows as a monk He d thought his life was moving on a simple, straightforward path, but with the slaughter of the other Templar Knights, plus his fears for his friends, and his newfound passion for Siobhan, he finds himself bewildered, needing to make difficult and painful choices.Siobhan has been sheltered growing up, but raised by an unconventional father a former monk and guardian of the secrets of the knights She s brave and passionate, and meets William with compassion but not timidity She s a worthy match for William.I love historical adventure romance, and this is a good one There s hidden treasure, battle and swordplay, love and loyalty, family bonds that go beyond simple blood relations I d recommend it for lovers of historical fantasy or swashbuckling romance

    I met this author at a writer s conference in July 2016 During our conversation GERRI RUSSELL mentioned the magic word Templars But, she cautioned me, it was a historical romance I generally would not read a book that calls itself a romance However, any book about the Knights Templar intrigues me So I decided I would read it TO TEMPT A KNIGHT lives up to its genre romance and history Several of the characters in the book are real Some of the events described are real I checked o I met this author at a writer s conference in July 2016 During our conversation GERRI RUSSELL mentioned the magic word Templars But, she cautioned me, it was a historical romance I generally would not read a book that calls itself a romance However, any book about the Knights Templar intrigues me So I decided I would read it TO TEMPT A KNIGHT lives up to its genre romance and history Several of the characters in the book are real Some of the events described are real I checked out the history via the internet and found some of the places and events described.This is the first of a series about 4 books total I look forward to readingof the books This book centers around William Keith, a lay Templar, who lives a celibate life in a monastery His parents were murdered by his uncle and his estate was seized by his uncle Keith made his way to Robert the Bruce s court in Edinburgh as a young man, eventually becoming a member of The Bruce s elite bodyguard In 1330, after The Bruce had died, William was sent on a mission with this elite group to deliver The Bruce s heart to Jerusalem In Spain, near the city of Teba, the group met a Moorish army The Moors routed the Templars but The Bruce s heart was saved and returned to Scotland A year later Keith rescues a damsel in distress Her name is Siobhan Fraser and her father, Sir John Fraser, is the Keeper of the Templar Treasure Now the adventures begin Keith and his fellow Templars are trying to keep the Treasure, especially the Spear of Destiny, from falling into the hands of de la Roche a Frenchman and Keith s uncle There are romantic interludes interspersed among sword fights The latter are really well done The ending is not what I expected.If you are a reader of romances , you will enjoy this story If you are a reader of Templar adventures, you too will enjoy the book I gave the book 4 stars just because I am not a reader of romances and I do not know how well it fits that category The writing is good The history seems to be accurate I recommend this book.GO BUY READ
