Publisher's Summary

A thrilling medieval with a pinch of paranormal! 

An English Knight....
Sir Braden de Bremont guards his secret gift, keeping others at arm's length, trusting no one outside of his family. When he's injured during a mission in Berwick, Scotland, he's forced to remain until he heals, while protecting a lady from a powerful lord determined to kill her family as a warning to others with English ties. 

A Scottish Lady....
Lady Ilisa Douglas is haunted by the terrible events she witnessed during the attack on Berwick when thousands were killed. She now trusts no one, especially English knights. Yet the exact kind of man she's learned to fear is the only one who steps forward to protect her from a murderous plot. Secretive yet bold, handsome and strong, Braden has Ilisa questioning all she once believed with his gentle embrace and passionate kisses. 

An irresistible temptation....
In order to expose the lord willing to kill for his cause, Braden and Ilisa agree to marry in name only to attend the lord's upcoming gathering. Feigning the part of an attentive husband to the beautiful lady who tempts him with her cautious smiles and tender touch is no hardship for Braden but makes it nearly impossible to keep his secret. Ilisa knows more than her heart is at stake in this terrible game, for if they fail, the King of England will march again on Scotland.

Wonderful story

This was such a good story. Lady Ilisa Douglas witnessed the brutality of English soldiers to her village but circumstances lead to her and her brother caring for an injured English soldier, Sir Braden de Bremont, who comes to her rescue during an attempt on her life. They get to know each other during his convalescence and are attracted to each other. She is not aware of a hidden gift that Braden hides. Ilisa and Braden agree to marry in name only in order to expose the Lord willing to kill her. Their marriage started in name only, but during their ruse, their feelings deepen.

This was a slow burn attraction between two unlikely people. Very good story telling, very good narration.

A fine place to start; now I must read the rest!

Even though I haven't yet read the first book in this series (A Knight's Quest) or the introductory novella (A Knight's Christmas Wish) this book drew me in right away to Braden and Ilisa's story. There's all kinds of good things going on here--an enemies-to-lovers vibe, protector/protectee romance, a temporary marriage, espionage, and a hint of magic. I'm not at all familiar with the historical events that surround the trilogy, but it didn't matter--this is one heck of a story, and I can't wait to get to the others!

I listened to the audiobook version, which was enjoyable--the narrator had the odd habit of announcing the end of the chapter (by number, nonetheless), pausing rather dramatically, and then announcing the new chapter, which was a bit odd but I got used to it. He had a nice accent, though, and didn't go overboard trying to make different voices which can sometimes backfire. I'd definitely listen to him again.

Rating: 4 stars / A-

Nice Story

The story is interesting although now I feel the need to get the back story to it. the characters develop nicely as the story goes on. You watch them gradually fall in love. I was not a huge fan of the narrator as he didn't do a female voice all that well nor dis I feel like his voice changed much between when he read as the narrator and Sir Braden. This of course is my opinion and others may think he's great. It's a personal thing. I would definitely read more my this author.
