Overview

Originally appeared in the print anthology A Mother's Way, under the title "Mother May I?"

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands comes a classic short story of a knight in need of a bride …

Lady Alice knows she is not the type to entice a man. She's too voluptuous, too intelligent, too strong minded. Why, she even reads! But then Jonathan, Earl of Fairley, arrives at court. Tall, dark and handsome, the knight is any woman's dream. And he has just been ordered by the king to find a bride … and Alice is to help him!

Jonathan has been evading his mother's matchmaking schemes for years, so why does she insist that Lady Alice isn't for him? Alice is only to aid in his search for a bride, yet Jonathan can't help but be distracted by her glorious hair—the color of a sunset—and a figure that is like a lush berry about to burst to full ripeness … Has Jonathan fallen prey to love?

Romantic Times
“Sands knows how to keep the pages flying as she satisfies readers with her trademark poignancy tinged with humor, wonderful characters and a delightful plot.”

Another delightfully charming historical romance from the talented Lynsay Sands… Sure to appeal to readers who enjoy Highland romance. Sure to appeal to lovers of intrigue.
Romantic Times BOOKclub
“Maintaining the tenor of the era while building a love story with sensuality and humor is one of Sands’ talents, and one she displays with relish...”

Good To Know

1.) I started The Deed (my first romantic comedy and the first book to be published) a year after my mother's death. I was very close to my mother and the year following her death was about the most miserable time imaginable. But then I decided I was tired of being down and unhappy, and looked around for something to lift my spirits and make me laugh. When I couldn't find anything, I decided to sit down and write my own. It worked! Emmalene and Amaury's antics in The The Deed had me chuckling as I wrote.
2.) I met my husband in New York in July 2003. I was there because of the RWA conference and he was there on vacation. The first day there we kept running into each other and chatting in front of the hotel, and then he asked to join our group (it was very brave of him. He was the lone male amongst six or seven women, lol). He's a Brit and I'm Canadian and the first two months of our relationship were conducted by phone as well as over the internet. Our first date was a week in New York in September, followed by three weeks in England. He then came to Canada in both November and December, the first time to propose and the second time for Christmas with my family and then to take me back to England with him for New Years. I lived in Northern England for two years. We married in New York and now live in Canada.
3.) I was writing about my husband before I met him. Single White Vampire came out in September 2003 and I took a copy with me to England when I went for the three weeks. I walked into my now-hubby's house to find at least six months worth of mail unopened and stacked up on a shelf inside the front door. When I stopped dead, eyes going wide with shock and asked "My God. That's mail. You don't open your mail?" He looked embarrassed and muttered some explanation about bills automatically being paid by the bank so no need to open those and everything else was unsolicited and he couldn't be bothered. When I burst out laughing, he started to frown and said "What?" My response was to dig out the copy of Single White Vampire and hand it over with the suggestion he read it. The mail thing wasn't the only similarity he had to Lucern Argeneau. There are many more and when he sat down to read the book, he kept stopping and turning a rather startled and even suspicious gaze my way and muttering that this sounded familiar" or that did. I had to point out that it really was coincidence, that I had written that story at least nine months before meeting him. LOL.

    What’s a mother to do?  The only remaining heir Jonathan, Earl of Fairley needs to get married and produce offspring.  He has rejected every eligible female his mother has introduced him to.  So being a smart mom she tries a little reverse psychology and introduces him to a female she feels won’t do.  
    Lynsay Sands is one of my very favorite authors.  She writes fun and sexy vampires and hysterical historicals.  Knight of My Dreams falls into the latter category and while not as outragesly funny as some of her other work still a fun read.

    I found Knight of My Dreams a cute and endearing short story.

    I found Knight of My Dreams a cute and endearing short story.




    Jonathan, Earl of Fairley, is ordered to appear before the King. Once he arrives at court, he is shocked by the King's order and believes his mother is conniving against him. He is told he must find a bride in two weeks or the King will appoint one. The race is on to find someone he can spend the rest of his life with...




    Jonathan has hit the nail on the head with his mothers interference. From the start, she is carefully pushing Jonathan toward the specific eligible lady of the court. Carefully trying to keep her intentions under wraps and enlisting help in her ploy.




    Lady Alice doesn't believe she is the marrying kind. But when Jonathan and Alice meet their seems to be instant chemistry...so why does his mother do everything in her power to push them apart.




    In a world where love is not a priority in marriages, Alice and Jonathan went from interest to declarations of love rather quickly. 




    What I especially enjoyed was the matchmaking attempts by Jonathan's mother. This is a fun, entertaining and very quick read. If you are looking for a short read with a HEA, check out this witty, historical romance.

    Lynsay Sands does it again

    Lynsay Sands does it again with this novella about how far a loving interfering mom will go to get her son wed. I read her write up on her website and I knew I needed to see where this entertaining story ended. I truly like how she wrote this with all the twists, turns, and humor. It really made my day and was an enjoyable easy read.
