A Man Of MisfortuneWith his reckless, drunken brother bringing ruin to the clan, and the lass he's loved all his life in the clutches of a violent husband, the last thing Thayne MacGowan needs is a spirited, sharp-tongued damsel to contend with--no matter how enticing she may be. . .

A hero who doesn’t act quite like a hero and a heroine who isn’t what she seems.  Two people from different words are fighting their own private battles, but together they are stronger. Amalie doesn’t want what she was born into, so she runs away.  Before she can get to where she needs to be she is kidnapped, gagged and then hand fasted.  This wasn’t the adventure she expected. Thayne’s time is running out.  The woman he has always loved had married someone else and now he has failed to save her.  In the middle of all this, a bonnie lass has fallen right into his arms.  Too bad he couldn’t keep her quiet, because now he is married to a woman he doesn’t know and barely likes.  He also has to deal with a brother who is always a handful and he has a broken betrothal to mend.  You would think life would be easier being the second born. A Perfect Knight for Love was an average read for me.  It was enjoyable but only slightly engaging.  While the story was interesting, it didn’t grab me wholeheartedly.  The characters were pleasant, but I couldn’t fall in love with them and I’m a girl who loves her highland men.  Thayne was just passable for me.  Even though he had lots to contend with, there were times I just didn’t feel him.  Amalie had moments of brilliance and then other times she was just okay.   I also thought the brother and his wife could have been nastier.  The plot around them had so much potential, but fell abruptly.  All in all that is how most of the story worked.  There was a buildup and momentum and then it leveled out.  No heart pounding excitement or cringe worthy scenes.  I will say though that there are some great scenes in the book that made A Perfect Knight for Love very entertaining. I would recommend A Perfect Knight for Love for an easy relaxing read.  It’s a pleasant story and a nice escape, but doesn’t take over your life.  It’s perfect for when you need a break and don’t have the time to be totally engrossed into a book.  You get some sweet highlander loving and can travel to Scotland to where the men were brutal and pleasurable at the same time; just how we like them.

A Perfect Knight for Love by Jackie Ivie Dunn-Fayne lusted after her, Amalie but by her telling them she was married to Thayne she was able to keep them alive and safe. The baby, although not hers but Mary the one who had died after giving birth, was to be cared for. They hoped to reach McGowan land where his troops waited for his return. It takes them many days and much deceiving of others and Thayne gets injured. When he finds out who she really is, he's not going to like it. She's hidden it so well, so far. He's got secrets of his own as well and he's declared he loves her, for real. She can proof once and for all who she really is with a letter that will save her husband's life, She hopes it's in time. Love the detailed descriptions of the countryside and the castles. That's what attracted me to wanting to read this book. Love the time frame and how things were done.

Amalie has set the wheels in motion be a governess, not a wife and substitute mother. However, that is exactly what she is assigned by being at the right place but the wrong time. Now she is taking care of a beautiful baby girl she has no experience with and a husband she just met five minutes ago. In order to stay safe and protected the ruse just created is one she must live out the rest of her days. The travel is long and the enemy lurking behind them very cunning yet Amalie has discovered that her husband Thayne MacGowan has a very clever mind indeed. He may come off too strong and aggressive and excessively eager to consummate the relationship, but he shows her a tender side she never expected to see. When they arrive home, staying even more on her toes proves to be job number one for Amalie. She must keep an even closer eye on this new family than she does those out to do her harm. The enemy is identified by the family is proving to be more devious and ruthless. Jackie Ivie creates magic with her stories and passion with the romance. Readers rely consistently on Ms. Ivie to write great books and she does!
