Overview

Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows—either to the church or a husband—she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth.



Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite of her conniving ways. Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.



Written for the General Market (G) (I): Contains little or no; sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language. May also contain some content of an inspirational nature.

It has been a long time since I've read a good medieval love story and I forgot what I was missing! Lord of Her Heart has A Knight's Tale feel to it, with Malcolm an expert in battle, headed to a tournament in Ramslea, hoping to win and gain land with which to finally settle down and plant roots. Jocelyn is escaping a convent, disguised as a boy named Jack, hoping to make it home to Ramslea to check on her father and get her life back. Jocelyn and Malcolm cross paths and "Jack" becomes Malcolm's squire, both of them traveling to Ramslea together, and secrets being revealed along the journey. Though incredibly predictable, it is a charming story, with a will they/won't they feel throughout. I fell in love with Malcolm's spirit and character but Jocelyn continued to bother me the further I read into the book. I could understand the choices her character made but it was frustrating and made it hard for me to really connect with her. I would've loved a little more action with more twists and turns, the book lacking spontaneity, and being way too foreseeable. The ending is so incredibly sweet, leaving the reader with no doubt to what the future holds in Ramslea, and truth be told, left me with a goofy grin on my face, which is the best way to end a story in my opinion. A cute, though predictable medieval love story that captures the imagination, taking you to the wonderful land of Ramslea, and leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy. A gratifying read!

This sweetly steamy medieval romance absolutely made my day! From the opening scene, the setting leaps off the page and characters are endearing and relatable... except, of course, for the ones which aren't... but conflict is an essential element of good storytelling so that's actually another way the author completely nailed it! What a debut!!! Since my schedule is packed right now, I picked up this book planning to simply take a peek then save it for a rainy-day pleasure read. Ketchersid immediately drew me into the story and ruined my plans as I became completely lost in the book. Once I started reading, the story literally did not leave my hand until I devoured every last word and the fact that I have to wait for another installment slays me. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Medieval Times, Intrigue and Mystery. Lords and Maidens. A great read. He's Fighting for his future—she's running for her life. It's been a while since I've read a book set in this time period. I'm glad I did. It took me back to the days of jousting, chivalry, and  England in 1198 AD. Jocelyn and Malcolm are thrown together due to circumstances and Jocelyn poses as Jack, a scrawny squire. Of course, this complicates things. Malcolm is dashing and noble but brings past hurts of his own he must overcome. Both characters face challenges from outside forces, but also from within their own hearts. This is a love story, one with obstacles and misunderstandings. Just like real life! I loved this story and these characters, the villains where truly villainous and Malcolm is a complex character. (Okay, so I might have swooned one or two times.) I was transported back in time for a delightful, action-packed adventure. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, my opinion is my own.

Confession: it's been a long time since I read a medieval book. And I wasn't sure about this one until probably a third of the way through, when the tournament began. Then it felt like a book version of "A Knight's Tale" movie (which is a very, very good thing)! The main character is even named Jocelyn! #fangirl If you enjoyed "A Knight's Tale" -- you'll enjoy this read. It's clean, faith-based, and entertaining; fun to watch the characters develop; and full of mystery as Jocelyn works to determine who is blackmailing whom. Malcolm is also completely fangirl/swoon-worthy. I would like a present-day version of him, please. :) The only thing I would note is that, similar to "A Knight's Tale", I wish the fade-to-black occurred earlier a few times. It did get a bit descriptive for my taste. But still, a read I very much enjoyed, and I'd definitely check out more by the author! This was absolutely an impressive debut. I received a copy of the book as part of JustRead Publicity Tours. All opinions are my own.

This is a quick paced medieval adventure that brings you into the age of Knights and tournaments, ladies in disguise and castle intrigue. I never really connected with the hero, I thought he was a bit self-centered. I was definitely entertained by this story though! There was always something happening. I just wished I could have "felt" the characters more 3.5 stars!

This book is an enjoyable, fast summer read that is both a romance and mystery story. The story engulfed me in the period of medieval times so much that I didn't want to put it down!! Lady Jocelyn, who searches to find out what happened to her father, while Malcolm, the chivalrous knight, crosses her path during his quest to obtain land. I really enjoyed this adventure of two characters that will capture your heart.

Every once and a while I want to enjoy a good medieval read. Usually, I just reread Lori Wick's The Knight and the Dove or a fairytale retelling, but it was nice to step into a new story. This story had elements that I love from multiple other stories while still holding its own as a unique story. The characters made you want to keep reading to see exactly what would happen. Jocelyn has the courage to disguise herself as a boy, going so far as to cut her hair. The author did a realistic job of the challenges and the weaknesses a woman would face trying to pose as a squire--a very physically demanding job. Then you have that gallantry and chivalry of Sir Malcom with realistic flaws. He was a hero you could cheer on, and at moments want to slap the sense into. The secondary characters were entertaining and supportive of the main characters. I love how this story has a knight, jousting, subterfuge, and a bit of mystery and danger. It has definitely been added to my reread pile.

Fans of Medieval Historical Romance have a new author to watch in Sherrinda Ketchersid. Her debut novel, Lord of Her Heart, is an absolute treat. As Lady Jocelyn escapes the convent disguised as a boy, she soon finding herself taken on as squire to an imposing, impressive, and chivalrous knight, Malcolm Castillon. More than luck is at play, as they are both bound for her home of Ramslea. He to win a title and land, and she to avoid an unwanted marriage and discover why her father has not written to her for a year. As the story progresses and Malcolm discovers the first of her subterfuges, the way in which "Jack" pulls off her disguise as long as she does is aided by a clever bit of storytelling. And the plot only thickens once they arrive at Ramslea, where the tournament is accompanied by intrigue, and Malcolm and his Lady find that her lies and his past may be the biggest challenges to their happily ever after. This story brought to mind a romance novel I read in the 1980's with similar lady-disguised-as-knight's-squire plot points, and while that novel had been a great favorite at the time, Lord of Her Hearthas supplanted it as a new favorite both for that plot device and for medieval romance. That Ketchersid's story involves their spiritual lives in an organic and believable way is, no doubt, part of what makes Lady Jocelyn and Malcolm's story stand out. This is a story to get lost in and any small issues were swept aside by shear enjoyment of the main characters and the challenges and perils they face. Highly recommended, with a warning that this very promising debut may leave you anxiously waiting for more Medieval Inspirational Romance from Sherrinda Ketchersid.
