Mrs. Welfonder has done it again with "Bride for a Knight." She entwines all of her books by mentioning and having characters from her other books appear. Tis book, as with all of her other books, has as much to do with the female characters as it does the male. Sometimes it is even the women that make the book worth reading. All of the characters are spirited in their own way, especailly the women. I like the overall theme of forgiveness and love. I shead man a tear reading the beginning of the book as Jamie is band from his home before he was even born. I love Devorgilla and Somerlend. They are two characters that help the plot along even though you don't know it when it happens. Sue-Ellen Welfonder's use of superstition and myths help the reader picture the world of the characters even better. I would reccomend this and any of her other books to any reader looking for a great romance to read.

Following the death of his mother giving birth to him, his father has had nothing to do with his offspring, James Macpherson. Instead others have raised him. Jamie is squire to Duncan ¿The Black Stag¿ Mackenzie when he learns his brothers were killed. As the heir he must come home to meet the father who abandoned him at birth.---------------------- Reluctantly, Jamie does his duty and comes home for the first since his father banished him, but is still unwelcome by his sire although he is the heir. He also learns from his father that he is to wed his late sibling¿s fiancée to cement an alliance between clans. However, Aveline, the sister of his betrothed, takes her place as his bride. As their lust for one another turns to love, the ghosts of Jamie¿s brothers demand he avenge their murders and stay alert for he and his beloved wife are the next targets.---------------------- Sue-Ellen Welfonder continues her powerfully vivid fourteenth century Highlander saga (see UNTIL THE KNIGHT COMES) with a wonderful romance. The male protagonist believes he is unworthy of love as he remains estranged with his father while the woman who loves him plans to prove to him he is wrong as he is deserving of her love. The paranormal and mystery elements blend nicely into the story line as those segues enhance a fine historical romance.------------------- Harriet Klausner

One of my favorites by Sue-Ellen! This was a re-read for me and one of my favorite stories by Sue-Ellen Welfonder. Jamie Macpherson and Aveline Matheson have been calling to me for some time now and I answered their call. The Western Highlands, 1325- Jaimie is the 10th son of Monro, one of the lessor Highland Chieftains. His mother died birthing him which sent Munro into a deep depression. He named his son Jamie of the Heather saying it was where he was spawned and where he would return when he was old enough. 1347- Aveline's father, Alan Mor Matheson wants her to marry Jamie to ensure the future and fortune of Clan Matheson. Her older sister, Sorcha, was to have married Jamie's older brother, Niall, who was killed along with the other 8 brothers when a bridge collapsed. Alan wants to keep the alliance with this new marriage agreement. Sir Kenneth MacKenzie is Jamie's liege lord. It's here that he learns of the deaths of his brothers. He is shaken to the core. Jamie heads home with his aged dog Cuillin, a gift from his brother Niall years before, to see to his father and to stop and visit Alan Matheson about the alliance and marriage. Everyone is saying Munro had gone mad over the loss of his sons. Jamie thinks his father hates him and his feelings are all over the place about what he will find when he arrives home. This starts the adventure that Jamie and Aveline must take to find their happiness and love. It not only is about a love sweeter than ever and full of passion but their journey is smack full of treachery and pain. Someone is out to hurt Munro and Jamie means to see it put to an end. There are ghosts and mysteries to uncover along the way. Through all the heartache and anger that have accumulated over the years comes an understanding that all things aren't as they seem....that love and acceptance are there for all who open their hearts along with their eyes.
