I love a good medieval read! What's more romantic than knights, fair ladies, and castles? Sherrinda Ketchersid nails all of that, plus a bit of mystery, a dash of danger, and a hearty sprinkling of humor. This is not a dark, gothic read. It's an engaging story with characters who'll stay with you long after you've closed the book. If you're new to the medieval time period, this is a great book to start with! (Beware: this time period can be addicting.)

Sherrinda Ketchersid's debut novel will have a prominent place on the top shelf of my bookcase. It's that good!
Having been sent to the convent for education several years ago, Lady Jocelyn has lost contact with her father. She then learns she will soon be forced to take her vows, either to the church or in marriage to a very distasteful man. She makes plans to disguise herself as a lad and run away from the convent in an attempt to try to make it home and learn what has become of her father.

Hero Malcolm melted my heart!

I was captivated by this medieval romance. This book has it all! The story includes intrigue in a fortified castle, chivalrous knights facing danger, a fierce maiden hiding her identity ...and most importantly, a hero who will melt your heart....not perfect, mind you, but a strong protector striving to do his best.

I enjoyed the nonstop action as tournament champion Malcom Castillon and feisty damsel Jocelyn Ashburne raced to reach their dreams. He desires his own lan

Lord of Her Heart will capture you from the very beginning, keeping you hostage page by page with stellar fight scenes, an intriguing mystery, and a heartwarming and realistic romance.
I enjoyed the fast pace of the book, and how it had you hooked within a matter of pages. The heroine, Jocelyn, is independent and outspoken, yet kind and selfless. I came to admire her for her bravery and her generous heart. Sir Malcolm, the hero, is the ultimate example of a chivalrous knight. Although he is keen

Sherrinda Ketchersid's debut novel captured my attention from the very first page. Lady Jocelyn Ashburne is a heroine with mettle and heart. As she fled one tenuous circumstance she encounters another in dashing Malcolm Castillon. He is on a mission himself to obtain his own noteworthy residence and Lady Jocelyn soon becomes part of his plan.

Romance, mystery, and intrigue are quilted into the fabric of this wonderful historical romance. There are many scenes that made me smile, sigh, and recall

Very enjoyable! It was just what I needed. It grabs your interest right away, pulling you into the story. It's easy to relate to the characters too. I found myself rooting for Jocelyn and when I thought she was making a mistake, wanting to get her attention to stop her! The book's easy to read, and you don't want to put it down....so I didn't! I always enjoy reading about characters who live their faith, and Jocelyn does. She's not perfect, but she tries. The other main character is estranged fr ...more

This story whisked me away to medieval times! Right from the first page, I was enveloped into this page-turning story. I found myself emotionally involved in the lives of these characters and holding my breath to find out what would happen next. As truths are revealed and a tender love blossoms, the mystery of who is behind Lady Jocelyn's troubles slowly comes to light. But will it be too late?

I look forward to reading more books from Sherrinda Ketchersid in the future! If you enjoy Medieval fic

I have a bit of an ambiguous relationship with Medieval Fiction. Some I love, sometimes I really can't stand it even if its set in my favourite period.

Thankfully, this new book fell into the former category. I ended up really liking it. It proved to be an excellent debut novel with an engaging plot, with a blend of romance, adventure and mystery. Sometimes its hard for newbie authors (or any authors) to blend together the various threads and numerous characters into a cohesive whole, but thus a

When I read a book, it plays like a movie in my head. In Lord of Her Heart,Sherrinda Ketchersid makes it easy to watch that movie unfold. Her descriptions from the scrubbing of the floors of the convent to the hiding places Jocelyn finds on her journey and finally of her home, Ramslea, make the story come alive. The scenes are written in such a way that make it fun to look around the corner and follow Jocelyn up the stairs and wait with anticipation of the lovely encounters between the hero and ...more

If you love novels with knights in shining armor, you'll want to read Lord of her Heart. I especially appreciated the excellent pacing, likable characters, and positive message. Here's a romantic tease:
Malcolm put a finger to the full lips. He leaned in close and watched with satisfaction as her eyes grew wide. "Today, however, you surprised me. You said not a word about having to wait on me. And you brought me water."
His finger moved from her lips, and he gave in to the temptation to caress

Medieval Historical Romance with some Christian areas. Yes, medieval, complete with swordplay, jousting - and a squire. Who was Jocelyn in disguise, as she ran away from the Nuns to get back to her father and their castle before they could marry her off. Lots of danger and deception, but Malcolm is a handsome cavalier who is out to win the competition for the castle and the land. Well, you can see it's slightly complicated. But it holds your interest right to the end. With a nice Epilogue so tha ...more

I absolutely love this book!

It's far above just a 5 star!

It's set in the 1200s. A time of kings and knights, jousting and sword fights.
In this book, a young lady is being forced to either make vows to the church or to an odious man in marriage.
Her decision? Dress as a boy, cut her hair, and make her escape.
Then the adventure really begins!
