A KNIGHT'S ENCHANTMENT has everything I like in a romance--an unconventional heroine, a decent hero, a truly villainous villain and a

A charming medieval romance, heart warming and entertaining, well written and historically evocative. A Knight's Enchantment is set in the West Country at the time of the Knights Templar. It features an unusual heroine, an alchemist, and a gorgeous knight who is as sensitive as he is strong. When they meet, Hugh and Joanna are both dedicated to liberating members of their family from the clutches of a corrupt man. Their romance is cleverly woven into their ongoing adventure. I read it in one lon ...more

There were an awful lot of points in this story where I felt I was missing something--dramatic changes of heart for characters without our seeing what led to it.

Captive Jewish girl is taken captive by a tourney knight trying to ransom his brother. Those of the Jewish faith were viewed with suspicion and often tormented. This is the case within the story. Many things happen with some misunderstandings, some gentle acceptance from unexpected sources. It was a good story. I look forward to more of Ms Townsend's books.

This was entertaining. A truly medieval tale, one doesn't often get in historicals and set in the West Country. Plays on the drama of the Templars, alchemy, religious intolerance, roles of women and the life of a tournament knight. Very interesting. The sexual interaction is surprisingly candid and saucy, depicting the unpretentious view of relations during that period.

A nice little interlude. A bit steamy. A bit romantic. Not great, but fine. Now on to Olive.
