Overview

Saint...
He was a miracle sent by God to save her. That was what Mariah's aged and ailing husband called the mysterious knight who had been brought unconscious to their doorstep. She had to agree that he was a maiden's dream, but she was no maiden to swoon over a handsome stranger. She was a wife, soon to be a widow, and though the course of action her dying husband urged upon her might leave him with an heir, it would lead her into terrible temptation.

Or Sinner...
When he opened his eyes upon the golden-haired woman attending his sickbed, Falcon thought her an angel. And as his strength grew, so too did his desire to show her a little bit of heaven. He might have no recollection of his past, but he sensed that he knew well how to please a woman. Little did he guess that the seduction he was contemplating would take him to paradise, yet put at risk--A KNIGHT'S HONOR.

"A medieval tale rich in drama and passion, with never a dull moment."--Romance Reviews Today

This wasn't one of my favorite romance novels, but it did have it's moments. The plot was a little more original than most books of this genre, but the last few chapters were rather slow. I think her other novels are much better.

As a teen Mariah married elderly Edmond, the Earl of Mildenhall because he hoped to leave an heir behind, but he failed. Now Edmond is dying and his abusive brother Osgood will inherit the title and estate leaving Mariah with nothing but grief over the loss of a man she considers a beloved father in spite of their attempts to have an offspring. Osgood makes it clear once he inherits that she can stay only if she marries his son Walter, a chip off the cruelty block. King Henry¿s loyal knight Sir Falcon arrives at Castle Mildenhall injured following an ambush. The wily Edmond persuades Mariah to sleep with the knight. --- Five years later, Henry sends Sir Falcon to resolve a legitimacy claim. Sir Osgood and Walter insist that the dead Edmond¿s son Robbie could not have been his as the man was too ill to have had sex. Osgood claims he is the legal earl and demands Mariah marry his son even threatening to harm Robbie. Mariah is attracted to Falcon but fears what will happen if he learns the truth about the deceptions she and her late husband played on him. --- Though the theme is very typical of the medieval romance, A KNIGHT¿S HONOR is a strong historical tale filled with a solid cast including the specter of the intelligent caring deceased Edmond who readers will appreciate his deception in which the end actually justified the means. The story line is character driven though loaded with action as Osgood and Mariah for different reasons need to act fast before Falcon learns the full truth. Connie Mason writes an intriguing novel that fans will treasure due to the tense interaction between the strong characters. ---Harriet Klausner

Mariah had wed the elderly Earl of Mildenhall, Edmond, when she was a teenager. Though husband and wife, the love they felt for each other was more like father and daughter. Still they had intimate relations in hopes of begetting an heir. As the story opens, Edmond is dying and his cruel brother, Sir Osgood, is to inherit everything. This will leave Mariah homeless, unless she agrees to wed Osgood's son, Walter, who is as mean as his sire. Fate steps in as Sir Falcon of Gaveston is brought to Castle Mildenhall for aid. Falcon is a knight of King Henry. He had been ambushed by a band of brigades. When Falcon regains consciousness, he has amnesia. Edmond convinces Mariah to pretend they are father and daughter. She is to seduce the unknown knight and get with child. In this manner, all would believe Edmond was the father and Mariah would keep her home. ...................... Five years later, Sir Falcon is summoned by the king. Mariah is but a fond memory to Falcon. The kings sends Falcon back to Mildenhall as his surrogate. Sir Osgood Fitzhugh and Walter doubt the legitimacy of Robbie, Mariah's son. Worse, Osgood and Walter have taken up residence in Mildenhall, claiming to be Lord Edmond's legal heir. While there, they are pushing Mariah to marry Walter. Falcon's task is to decide whether Robbie is to be declared heir or Osgood. ........................... When Falcon arrives at the door, Mariah knows that he will learn that she had been Edmond's wife, instead of daughter, all those years ago. But no matter, Edmond acknowledged Robbie as his son before he died. Mariah had only to claim her son to be age three, instead of four, and the knight would not know the truth. As Falcon takes his time getting answers and making a decision, Osgood and Walter scheme to force Mariah to the alter, even if they must threaten Robbie's life. At the same time, Falcon and Mariah are still physically attracted to each other. Mariah wants Falcon to quickly decide the heir and leave, before he learns who Robbie's father really is. .............................. ***** There is one or two other sub-plots going on that I can't describe without doubling this synopsis and possibly giving away spoilers. Suffice it to say that Connie Mason has proven why she has hit the Best Seller lists so many times. The tension in the book is high throughout the entire novel. I loved every minute! *****

Mariah is a woman with determination and will hold on to Mildenhall with all of her strength. Falcon is determined to get to the truth.What I did not like about this book. Mariah constantly running back and forth from the castle to wherever and from wherever to the castle and constantly putting herself in danger.What I did like. Falcon being the hero, not being fooled by others and searching for the truth.

A Knight¿s Honor is an engaging story where the action never lets up and the main characters remain true despite facing a myriad of deceits. This book is refreshing in the fact that the hero is the one who is deceived constantly by the heroine. It¿s usually the other way around. Despite all the trials the two endure, they develop a mutual respect and their love never wavers.Sir Falcon is an honorable knight who has finally earned his life¿s dream: the praise of his king and the king¿s reward of a rich heiress and land to call his own. Mariah, Countess of Mildenhall is married to Edward, an elderly man who treats her more like a daughter than a wife. Mariah has no children and more importantly no heir to protect Mildenhall from her evil brother-in-law, Osgood and his son Walter. Edward is dying and desperate for a son to save Mildenhall. Falcon becomes the solution. On his way to his wedding to the rich heiress Rosamond, Falcon is attacked in the forest and left for dead by a group of bandits. Mildenhall¿s healer, Edwina nurses him back to health. Falcon¿s body heals but he has lost his memory and becomes Sir Knight for lack of a better name. Edward encourages Mariah to seduce Sir Knight in an effort to gain the son they need. Mariah is appalled but quickly comes around because she discovers that Sir Knight is the man of her dreams. She reluctantly tells Sir Knight that Edward is her father. That lie gives Sir Knight the permission to pursue Mariah. In a short time the two enjoy a secret but passionate love affair. All is well until Falcon regains his memory and leaves Mariah to rush to his betrothed. Five years later, Edward has died and Osgood has taken over Mildenhall by force. Although Mildenhall now has an heir: Robbie, who was claimed by Edward. Osgood disputes the legitimacy of the claim. Mariah petitions the king for help. Instead of King Henry arriving to aid her cause, Falcon shows up. His arrival back at Mildenhall is when the story really heats up.Falcon, who has remained landless because his betrothed quickly married another man during the time that he was missing, becomes judge and juror of Mildenhall. He believes that he lost everything because Mariah didn¿t send inquiries to London when he had amnesia. He is also furious to learn that Mariah was Edwards¿s wife and not his daughter. He knows that Mariah¿s son could not belong to the sickly Edward. He believes that not only did he cuckold Edward, but also believes that Mariah was unfaithful again as a wife; in taking a lover after he left five years earlier. He has never forgotten his desire for Mariah, but his honor and duty as a knight is more important. Mariah had never expected to see Falcon again and must now deal with his fury. She hides the knowledge of Robbie¿s parentage and lies about Robbie¿s age as well. Mariah still loves Falcon, but feels the truth can never be known for fear that Robbie will lose his inheritance. Robbie is in constant danger due to the machinations of Walter and Osgood, who though evil, are bumbling idiots. Rosamond comes back into the picture as a widow to try and get her clutches back into Falcon. Mariah, for all of the lies that she told is a true to life character. As a woman she made the only choices she could to survive and to protect her son. In many ways she was just as capable and even more resourceful than Falcon. Mariah is not a skittish female who merely sits back, waiting for rescue when her son¿s life and the people of Mildenhall are at stake. Falcon is a bit too perfect with his constant struggle to maintain his all-important honor. The turning point of the story comes when Falcon learns that Robbie is his son. That dilemma and how he handles it signifies a knight¿s honor. My biggest complaint is the choice of Falcon for the hero¿s name. The name struck me as just plain silly. Other than that, the book is a definite keeper.
