Overview

Her Only Hope For The Season

With their father gone this Christmastide, Bronwyn de Breton and her two younger sisters are utterly vulnerable at unprotected Hunswick Castle. And their troubles are compounded when a fearsome knight arrives on the king's orders to take Hunswick as his own—and the youngest de Breton daughter as his wife.

Is A Man She's Never Met

Bronwyn would never let her little sister be forced to marry a man as rough and wild as the new lord is whispered to be. Yet someone must form an alliance with him, or all of Hunswick will be at risk. So she steps forward, pretending to be her own sister.

And A Love She Never Expected

But the new lord is not so easily fooled. He knows Bronwyn is not the woman he has promised to marry. And yet, no matter how duty-bound he may be, there is no resisting the golden-haired beauty who so fearlessly gives herself to him...and awakens a passion unlike any he's ever known...

    This is a super Normandy medieval romance

    In 1154, their father has gone off to escort the new heir to Hunswick Castle. He leaves behind his oldest daughter Bronwyn de Betron to take charge of their home and watch over her two always battling younger sisters (Lily and Edythe).

    To the de Betron siblings' shock and grief, their father dies. The new heir Lord Ranulf de Gunnar arrives at the castle and proves to be a cold despicable boor. Making matters more difficult for the grieving siblings, recently crowned King Henry has ordered Ranulf to marry Edythe. Heeding Lily's suggestion as she knows her sibling could not deal with such an odious person, Bronwyn impersonates her sibling until they can escape. Instead she falls in love with brusque Ranulf, who hides a warm compassionate heart from his new charges.

    This is a super Normandy medieval romance starring two lonely people, who fall in love, but the deception leaves both with no future together; ironically without the ruse they would still have no future together. The lead couple and her sisters make for a strong entertaining historical as fans will wonder if The Christmas Knight will marry for love or duty.

    Loved, Loved, Loved this book!!!

    Received the paperback version of this book and became so engrossed in the story that I ended up purchasing it so I could have it on my Nook and read it late into the night. I had never read anything by Michele Sinclair and all I can say is WOW!! Loved the main and secondary characters. Sinclair brought the main characters to life and made it so you are giddy with anticipation to future stories involving the secondary characters. In Christmas Knight, Ranulf is the flawed but honorable hero of the story and Bronwyn, the heroine, is a character that anyone that is or has an older sister can identify with. Sinclair has painted a beautifully rich story and begins each chapter with a little synopsis of the traditions of Twelfth Night. I normally don't write reviews, but felt so strongly about this book that I wanted to recommend it to others. This book will end up on my keeper shelf along with classic Lisa Kleypas, Judith McNaught, and Julie Garwood books. Highly recommend this book for any time of the year.

    Enjoyable!

    I've enjoyed all of Michele Sinclair's books but this one is my favorite so far. I especially enjoyed the chapter introductions where Ms. Sinclair gives us little tidbits of information about each of the 12 days of Christmas. I can only assume Ms. Sinclair has two more books in store as Bronwyn's sisters have a story to be told as well.

    Wonderful, heartwarming

    Michele is a wonderful romance writer. You can't help but become attached to her characters, feel their pain, their loss, anxious for them to let go of their inabetians and free themselves to trust again, live and love. I enjoyed it thoroughly and am sure to reread it time and time again. I highly recommend her other books too.

    Contains lots of Christmas Spirit

    Ranulf "Deadeye" de Gunnar was located abroad & unwillingly dragged back to England by Sir Laon de Brenton on a mission from the King. Yet, upon a tragic accident, Ranulf makes a life promise to Laon to marry his youngest and most innocent daughter, Lily, and to rule as the new Lord of his land. Thus the beginning of our tale.

    Bronwyn de Brenton is the oldest of her sisters. In her father's absence she has taken on the duties of running the castle and keeping her rowdy sisters in line. Upon hearing from a messenger that her father is dead and the King has granted a new Lord in his place to marry Lily, Bronwyn comes up with a scheme to trade places with her sister in hopes of saving her from a unhappy future. Her sisterly sacrifice unfortunately doesn't fool Renulf who knows in detail the description of all three de Brenton girls, but he doesn't let on that he is aware of the switch since he has now developed feelings for the oldest sister. Does he stay loyal to the King & his promise to Laon or, for once, follow his own heart?

    There's lots of Christmas spirit in this book and other great holiday tales that are no longer shared or celebrated, which was fun and enjoyable to read about. The sister connection was nice as well since they were all complete opposites of each other but truly shared a bond that was evident while reading. I adored the bickering relationship between Renulf's best friend, Tyr Dequhar and Bronwyn's middle sister, Edythe de Brenton - can't wait for their story! Lots of adventure and mischief sprinkled throughout as well that kept the overall tale exciting.

    Likes: The beginning of each chapter broke down the historical significance of each day around Christmas; from village traditions, to what food was eaten or who was being celebrated. LOVED IT! (says the historical fanatic!)

    Dislikes: The first third of the book annoyed me a bit since every other page had Renulf wondering if Brownyn would "indulge him in a kiss from her sweet lips" and after one too many similar thoughts ( why not just cup her face already and do it instead of thinking about it for the 20th time already!!!! Maybe think about something other than her lips for once...mix it up!!! ) . . . I got rather bored with their dull budding relationship . . . but it got better near the end.

    This is a great, feel good, romance. Michele Sinclair provides another story that allows the reader to slip away into a world where love really does conquer all.

    Enjoyable, good read.

    This first 25 pages were torture, it was so slow I almost gave up, so I just skimed thru. Finally, the book picks up and was really good to the end, exciting, loved the main characters!!!

    Entertaining and enlightening

    My favorite of all her works. The promised continuation of the sisters' stories has yet to appear, although the author has written other series. Won't buy more until of her work until Sinclair focuses back on this.
