Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Set during the misty Middle Ages, when brave knights in shining armor rescued fair maidens and chivalry and honor were prized above all things, this quartet of novellas from some of the genre's best-known writers takes the concept of the vow and spins it into four very different yet thematically linked medieval tales. Kurland leads off with "The Traveller," a humorous time travel piece that tosses a modern-day woman back into the life of a 13th-century knight who needs to reclaim his inheritance. Patricia Potter follows with "The Minstrel," her charming story of a lord who promises his dying mother he will only marry for love and becomes a traveling musician in order to find a woman who can make his own heart sing. "The Bachelor Knight," Deborah Simmons's story of a valiant but lowly born knight who is forced to honor an old vow and marry a lady so that she can retain her holdings, and Glynnis Campbell's "The Siege," a romantic tale of a knight and his reluctant intended, unaware of the other's identity and trapped together during an assault on her family's castle, nicely round out the collection. A worthy collection that should appeal to most medieval romance fans.

More About the Author

When she's not writing swashbuckling historical romances and playing medieval matchmaker, bestselling author Glynnis Campbell (also writing as Sarah McKerrigan and Kira Morgan) is a cartoon voice, the wife of a rock star, and the mother of two young adults. She's been a ballerina, a typographer, a film composer, a piano player, a singer in an all-girl rock band, and a voice in those violent video games you won't let your kids play. She does her best writing on cruise ships, in Scottish castles, on her husband's tour bus, and at home in her sunny southern California garden. Glynnis loves transporting readers to a place where the bold heroes have endearing flaws, the women are stronger than they look, the land is lush and untamed, and chivalry is far from dead!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The reason I don't give this book 5-stars is not every story in this book is good. (Normally, Romance novel is not my thing. So it has to be a really really good story to keep me continue reading).. The first one (The traveller), is my most favorite. If you're Lynn Kurland's fan and love to read about de Piaget family or time-travelling, this is the one you don't want to miss. (I know this author through this novel and I really love her style of writing...really entertaining).. The second story (The minstrel) is fine. Not perfect but ..still fine. There's some time that I felt bored at its predictable story line but it's entertaining enough to keep going. The third story (The Bachelor knight)..this is the worst story in all 4. Well, it's not too bad...it's just not interesting and just cannot keep your attention until the very end..so a bit ruining your mood from the first two. The fourth one (The Seige) is better. The plot is interesting, in my opinion, and can entertain you on your boring day. It leaves the this-is-not-so-bad feeling when you finish the book.. Still.. although not a really good one, it's suitable for your bed time reading

A Knight's Vow consists of four stories with the same theme - knight's vowing to "honor and protect helpless women" ends up marrying the "respsonsibility" they had taken care of.
Only the first and the last stories are worth a read. I have been a fan of all Lynn Kurland's time travel series and this story continues to interest me. A must read to add your collection of her time series.
The last one, "the seige" is also a must read for a new author. It is entertaining and caught my attention throughout the story. I wished it were longer. The idea of "knowing a person's soul first before the body" is an interesting part. And thus I am taking my time to collect all three of Gylnnis Campbell's de ware trilogy.
However the two stories in the middle -- "the minstrel" & "bachelor knight" were a bore. The minstrel was soo predictable that I could not finish the whole book. I felt like I would make up a better plot than Ms Potter. The concept of the "bachelor knight" was a good one. However, Ms. Simmons seems to fail at the task of developing a full entertaining and cohesive storyline along the concept. It is like watching the Movie "Scorpion King" after the two Mummy series that you have to laugh. Although all the ingredients are there, there is just something missing.
a good book for bedtime or hospital run read.

I love almost any book by Lynn Kurland this one was no exception. All 4 books were fun,clean, silly and horribly romantic. All these characters are from the McLeod clan and a reading order for her books can be found on her websight.

I find it hard to rate books like these because you have to give an overall rating for four different stories. One of these stories was really quite good while the others were just okay.

1st Lynn Kurland's The Traveller-Julianna is a modern day unemployed woman with multiple degrees in ancient languages. She is sitting on a park bench reading a letter from her friend who lives in Scotland and believes in time travel when she herself is transported to a castle under siege in 1299. She is rescued by William de Piaget great grandson of Robin of Artane who made a vow to God to help all maidens in distress. William ends up losing his castle to save Julianna's life, but they fall in love and marry. They end up travelling back to the future and it is kind of comical to see how people adjust to different time eras. However, this short story loses what Lynn Kurland is a master at and that is taking the time to develop her characters so that you know how they think by the end. This story is just okay.

2nd-Patricia Potter-The Minstrel-I liked this story but once again it is just too short to really draw you in. Duncan is a wealthy lord who makes a vow to his dying mother to marry for love, so he disguises himself and travels as a minstrel to find a woman that will fall in love with him not his name and title. The only problem is his musical talents are limited. He meets Lynet in an open field and mistakenly believes she is a peasant woman. He hears her singing and asks her to meet him every day to give him music lessons. Lynet is really the daughter of a wealthy landowner who is being forced to marry. She must choose a suitable husband within a fortnight. When caught in a compromising position , Duncan is captured and Lynet threatened with being sent to a nunnery.

This collection is worth reading solely for Lynn Kurland's story and it isn't one of her best. However, it could have been if they had been smart enough to have her write it as a full length novel. The other stories were boring as hell. I do not understand why the publisher persists in having Lynn write short stories. They are NOT her forte. She is too good an author to waste like that.

I just finished reading this book and I thought it was good. I LOVE Lynn Kurland, so that's why I even got the book. The Bachelor Knight was sort of boring, it took me a while to read through that. My favorite one of course was The Traveller. All in all I would recommend this book to a friend.
