I couldn't finish this. Not very good. I couldn't get the characters, sometimes things just dragged on. I hate when that happens. ( )

Lindsay Townsend's "A Knight's Vow" is a sweet medieval romance with touches of spice. I was drawn right in from the first scene. The writing flows gracefully in a melodic voice and pulls in historical detail without ever overwhelming the reader. The characters were enjoyable and well drawn, realistic, and easy to care about. Details of the setting are strong enough to show where they are at each moment but doesn't wander aimlessly. Townsend has found the right blend of setting and story, making her work quite enjoyable. I recommend it to all historical romance lovers. ( )

A KNIGHT’S VOW drew me in with the pageantry of this medieval time and I was compelled to read this book. My heart melts any time a knight fights to win his lady love. Watching Guillelm do just that kept me sighing at the wholly romantic nature of his actions. Stoic at times, sinfully sexy and seductive at others, Guillelm is the ideal knight in shining armor. I think Alyson agrees with me one hundred percent!

A KNIGHT’S VOW is a gripping historical tale of love, life, and chances. It is a heady and passionate read which rapidly took me to a place that is timeless. I couldn’t have asked for a better story! 4.5 Blue Ribbons.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 142010361X, Paperback)

England, 1138. Set against the dangerous backdrop of the crusades, this sweeping romance captures the story of a beautiful, young woman and the dashing knight who will battle his fiercest enemies to win her undying love...

Ever since she was fourteen, Alyson of Olverton dreamed of marrying a brave, charismatic young knight. His name was Guillelm de la Rochelle and his marriage proposal satisfied her deepest yearnings. But her father forbade their union, prompting Guillelm to set out for the Holy Land, breaking Alyson's innocent heart. Seven years later, the valiant knight has defied rumors of his death and returned home, having no idea that nothing is the same as when he left...

Back from fighting in the crusades, Guillelm is stunned to find Alyson entrenched in his father's ancestral castle even worse she was betrothed to his father before he died. Despite this chilling fact, Guillelm finds himself struggling to resist the temptation to seduce her. Torn between intense jealousy and overwhelming desire, he shocks them both by proposing marriage a second time, justifying that it will be easier to keep her safe if she is his bride. Little do they know, however, that there is an enemy in their very midst one who won't rest until he destroys their chance at everlasting love...
