5 Book Review for A Restless Knight

A Defiant LadyIn Scotland's darkest hour, an English warrior dressed all in black has come for her. Blessed with the kenning, Lady Tamlyn MacShane foresaw this day, when the ruthless Lord Julian Challon would conquer her land—and her heart. She is determined to resist him…but she is no match for his strength…or his sensuality.A Resolute Lord

To Julian, the proud Scotswoman should be nothing more than a captive. Yet Tamlyn's fiery beauty ensanares him, body and soul. Now, the warrior known as the Black Dragon is in danger of falling under a spell that cannot be broken—the spell of love…

Deborah MacGillivray has written a series that transports you from the daily routine of your life back in time and space to medieval Scotland. A time when belief in the old gods and old ways were still alive and well and living in the magical glades and hidden places. Deborah gives us a glimpse into these times with an exquisitely written and beautifully researched novel that presents the reader with characters to love, dilemmas for them to work through, and enough suspense to keep you wondering what is going to happen next.

The love that grows between the hero and heroine is preordained from the beginning…and indeed may just be the continuance of an ancient, interrupted love, but each of these strong characters have to come to the knowledge and the acceptance of that love.

The descriptions of the ceremonies, of the period clothing, of the history behind the story are well-drawn and well-researched. If you enjoy Scottish history and a powerfully romantic story, A Restless Knight is a book you will want to consider. The characters are sensual, the suspense is strong, and the resolution is very satisfying. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the Dragons of Challon series from this award winning author.
