    his is a profound historical romance

    In 1331 Templar Sir William Keith escaped the Papal-French monarch betrayal that killed most of his compatriots. He manages to return to Scotland seeking the home of Sir John Fraser; in spite of the danger he vows loyalty to no one except the Lord.

    William plans to find a treasured holy artifact the Spear of Destiny to keep safe. Instead of reaching fellow templar Sir John, who was guarding the relic, he finds the man's concerned daughter Lady Siobhan with the Spear missing and her dad abducted. William widens his pledge to keep Siobhan safe as even family members of a Templar are fair game by La Roche and his murderous band. Together, Siobhan and William also search for the holy Spear and her father while falling in love. However, his oath to God includes a celibacy promise as for instance her father understands having pledged Templar celibacy just before learning he sired an offspring.

    This is a profound historical romance that looks deeply at the templar lifestyle just after the betrayal wiped out much of the order. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the lead couple hooks up and never slows as William feels like he has three (his natural hardened sword) and often four (his metallic sword) legs throughout much of the plot. Fans of Templar survival romantic suspense will enjoy TO TEMPT A KNIGHT as the hero's biggest problem is his attraction for the woman he has vowed to keep safe.

    Don't recommend

    I'm glad I only paid 99 cents for this Nook book. It was mediocre to say the least.

    LOVED it! Scottish Templars, treasure hunting, saving lives.

    I loved this book. A young girl is thrown into the secret world of her father that she had no idea existed. But, she knew more than she thought as this story unfolds and her quest is to find the treasure and free her father from his kidnapper. Great book and the author did alot of research so the majority of what you read is historical.

    THE ABSOLUTE BEST BOOK, I have read in a very long time. This is my first book by this author, and will not be my last. This is a must read book, I couldn't stop reading it. I felt every pain and joy of our character's. The secondary character's were writting so richly too, that I can't wait for Simon's story, or any ot the other "brothers." I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
