I picked this book up because the last (and only) Jackie Ivie book I read rated one of the very few 5 stars I have given a light romance. Having loved "A Knight in White Satin" so much, I thought to read more of Ivie's work. Proof that life is never consistent...

The last third of this book is the ONLY thing that saved this from a 1 to 2 star rating. The first 2/3 of the story was so brainless and silly, I was tempted to just chuck it. I'm glad I kept going because the writing and plot actually r
AUTHOR: Jackie Ivie has a sense of humor. Great with description of events, places, persons and things. Ah ha Jackie. I caught you unnecessarily repeating yourself a few times. Tsk tsk

SYBIL is talented with organization and smart as a whip. She has the ability to take natural resources and use them well in the 15th century. Chemistry, medicine and a master chef. She is VINCENT’s challenge. He must make her fall in love with him without touching her (you know what I mean) and then leav

I really liked this story but the ending was incomplete. Such as: what was Margaret up to and what does it have to do with everything else that's going on? idk, there were just unanswered questions, though not a ton, stuff that was brought up but not really addressed again. On the other hand, i really liked Sybil and the way that she "made guesses and was right some of the time." i also really appreciate the authenticity of the language and the history. a lot of authors can't get that right.

Once Upon a Knight by Jackie Ivie

Scottish Highlands of 1457

Sybil Eschoncan the illegitimate child of Laird Eschoncan was never liked or treated well by Lady Eschoncan or her daughters. Abandon by her mother at the door step when she was three, she has spent her life being invisable.

Vincent Danzel life has been one tragedy after another. His best friend is killed in a reaving raid, and his parent die when Laird MacHugh attacks the castle.

I read a previous novel by Ms. Ivie. Irony with that is that I found out my best friend had started the same book (the previous novel, not this one).

Anyways, it starts with a poor shaken frog. It just gets better and better.
There's a revenge plot, bastards (literally), and more.
It's entertaining, it's sweet, and it's just great.

Oh, and did I mention guys in kilts?
Bleh. I couldn't continue reading it after Chapter 5. Everything about it is disjointed and I have problem in conjuring what I'm reading in my head. Such a shame really because the story description at the back cover was really interesting. Sadly, it fails to deliver. Chapter 5 and I still can't wrap my mind around the hero and heroine. And the dialogue was awful as well.

Okay, I got some hangups about it, but for the most part I truly liked the book. I especially liked the couple, Sybil and Vincent.

More to come later.

Jackie Ivie was born and raised in a suburb outside Utah's capital, beautiful Salt Lake City. The second in a family of four daughters and one son, Jackie was constantly amusing her siblings with her invented games, escapades, and stories. And she was always reading. She would even walk the family dog, with one hand holding the leash, while the other held the ever-present book. No subject went unr ...more
