Tristan of Ramsey is frustrated. While William the Conquer,
the King of England is not only his liege and his friend he
seems to have saddled Tristan with a burden he is not sure how
to handle. William has decided that he will marry, and is
dictating to whom he will marry so that it will potentially
help to defeat the revolt in the midlands. Tristin is stunned
when he meets his Lady and finds her not only pleasant to look
at but with a wonderful kind heart and personality.
Lysette is apprehensive. She wants to live in a marriage that
will be a loving one long term so she is going into this
marriage with open arms and heart. She is worried that her
husband to be will be prejudiced against either her Saxon
background or her connection to Wake, the man who appears to
be behind the revolt in the Midlands.
Lysette is injured and then kidnapped both Tristan and Lysette
look closer to themselves and their feelings to determine what
is really important to them.
Ahlers has found the perfect mix of masculine hero and
feminine strength in her story For the Love of
a Knight. I enjoyed this well written story.
I think Ms. Ahlers did a good job in making Lysette naďve
enough for the times but at the same time not willing to be
led around like a ‘sheep’. This along with the fact that
Tristin didn’t take on the persona many writers give a
seasoned knight of being arrogant helped the story to flow. I
hope to be able to read more by this author in the future.
