Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Set during the misty Middle Ages, when brave knights in shining armor rescued fair maidens and chivalry and honor were prized above all things, this quartet of novellas from some of the genre's best-known writers takes the concept of the vow and spins it into four very different yet thematically linked medieval tales. Kurland leads off with "The Traveller," a humorous time travel piece that tosses a modern-day woman back into the life of a 13th-century knight who needs to reclaim his inheritance. Patricia Potter follows with "The Minstrel," her charming story of a lord who promises his dying mother he will only marry for love and becomes a traveling musician in order to find a woman who can make his own heart sing. "The Bachelor Knight," Deborah Simmons's story of a valiant but lowly born knight who is forced to honor an old vow and marry a lady so that she can retain her holdings, and Glynnis Campbell's "The Siege," a romantic tale of a knight and his reluctant intended, unaware of the other's identity and trapped together during an assault on her family's castle, nicely round out the collection. A worthy collection that should appeal to most medieval romance fans. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    attempt for a new twist on an old theme

    A Knight's Vow consists of four stories with the same theme - knight's vowing to 'honor and protect helpless women' ends up marrying the 'respsonsibility' they had taken care of. Only the first and the last stories are worth a read. I have been a fan of all Lynn Kurland's time travel series and this story continues to interest me. A must read to add your collection of her time series. The last one, 'the seige' is also a must read for a new author. It is entertaining and caught my attention throughout the story. I wished it were longer. The idea of 'knowing a person's soul first before the body' is an interesting part. And thus I am taking my time to collect all three of Gylnnis Campbell's de ware trilogy. However the two stories in the middle -- 'the minstrel' & 'bachelor knight' were a bore. The minstrel was soo predictable that I could not finish the whole book. I felt like I would make up a better plot than Ms Potter. The concept of the 'bachelor knight' was a good one. However, Ms. Simmons seems to fail at the task of developing a full entertaining and cohesive storyline along the concept. It is like watching the Movie 'Scorpion King' after the two Mummy series that you have to laugh. Although all the ingredients are there, there is just something missing. a good book for bedtime or hospital run read.

    Good but not the best

    The reason I don't give this book 5-stars is not every story in this book is good. The first one (The traveller), is my most favorite. If you're Lynn Kurland's fan and love to read about de Piaget family or time-travelling, this is the one you don't want to miss. The second story (The minstrel) is fine. Not perfect but ..still fine. There's some time that I felt bored at its predictable story line but it's entertaining enough to keep going. The third story (The Bachelor knight)..this is the worst story in all 4. Well, it's not too bad...it's just not interesting and just cannot keep your attention until the very end..so a bit ruining your mood from the first two. The fourth one (The Seige) is better. The plot is interesting, in my opinion, and can entertain you on your boring day. It leaves the this-is-not-so-bad feeling when you finish the book.. Still.. although not a really good one, it's suitable for your bed time reading

    Delightful anthology

    <P>¿The Traveller¿ by Lynn Kurland. In 1299 near the Scottish border Sir William vows to rescue the damsel in the greatest distress though he worries how he will accomplish that noble deed. In 2001 Manhattan Julianna worries about losing ten pounds that is before she travels back in time so that he can honor his oath while they fall in love with one another. <P>¿The Minstrel¿ by Patricia Potter. In 1485, wealthy Duncan wants someone to love him not his money especially after his deathbed vow to his mother. He pretends to be a traveling minstrel. He soon falls in love with Lady Lynet. However, her father would never accept a troubadour as a spouse, but if she loves him too, how about a noble. <P>¿The Bachelor Knight¿ by Deborah Simmons. Sir Berenger prefers to remain single, but Guenivere reminds him of his vow forcing the honorable knight to marry her. Soon he finds a desperate need to gain the love of his wife. <P>¿The Siege¿ by Glynnis Campbell. The King ordered Ryance and Hilaire to wed though she opposes the idea. Ryance soon wonders how to woo a reluctant maiden when he has placed her castle under siege and is caught underground with his nay saying betrothed. <P>All four tales center on a chivalrous knight who scorns love, but will die for their beloved. Each tale is fun and exciting, as the Middle Ages in England and Scotland seem vividly alive in this engaging anthology. <P>Harriet Klausner
