Great story development and the characters grew throughout the story.
Freck's Mom
Everything about her calls to him and the lust turns to love with his denying it every step of the way--an emotional journey that captivates.
LAS Reviewer
A hero who doesn't act quite like a hero and a heroine who isn't what she seems.

Jackie Ivie's latest novel A Perfect Knight for Love was a little confusing, especially the beginning which lacked enough dialogue and narrative to set the scene for the reader. Also confusing, many times the characters, and not just the leads talk past each other or misunderstand what others are stating.

Amalie is a noblewoman pretending to be a governess on the run from her father who has betrothed her to an unsuitable husband. This information is scattered throughout the first few chapters. Amalie is in Scotland at an inn when she is carried, kissed, forced at a dying woman's bedside and abducted by a handsome highlander who is a complete stranger to Amalie. These early chapters are perplexing because the action is hard to follow because the characters have little dialogue and what there is makes little sense. It is not until later that the reader ascertains that hero Thayne MacGowan, has impressed Amalie into his plans to save a deceased woman's infant and avoid being skewered by the dead woman's husband.

To save herself and the newborn she has promised to watch over, Amalie claims to be wedded to Thane, not knowing she has essentially made their marriage real by stating this in front of witnesses. Thane goes along with her plan because this marriage is real to him, Thane considers himself chivalrous and honest.

Thane and Amalie must travel to Thane's lands with a rather villainous clan laird and Amalie realizes Thane is her only hope of surviving. Amalie has always considered herself rather resourceful but Scotland is not England and she discovers that the Scots are almost barbaric in comparison.

Amalie has set the wheels in motion be a governess, not a wife and substitute mother. However, that is exactly what she is assigned by being at the right place but the wrong time. Now she is taking care of a beautiful baby girl she has no experience with and a husband she just met five minutes ago. In order to stay safe and protected the ruse just created is one she must live out the rest of her days.

The travel is long and the enemy lurking behind them very cunning yet Amalie has discovered that her husband Thayne MacGowan has a very clever mind indeed. He may come off too strong and aggressive and excessively eager to consummate the relationship, but he shows her a tender side she never expected to see.

When they arrive home, staying even more on her toes proves to be job number one for Amalie. She must keep an even closer eye on this new family than she does those out to do her harm. The enemy is identified by the family is proving to be more devious and ruthless.

Jackie Ivie creates magic with her stories and passion with the romance. Readers rely consistently on Ms. Ivie to write great books and she does!

I've just finished reading the most funny, thrilling and sexy book by Jackie Ivie. When Amalie is exiting her coach at an inn, she runs literally into the arms of one handsome highlander. All she can do is stare into the eyes of the man and wonder, "what have I gotten myself into". When Thayne MacGowan bumps into the beautiful and very English woman, he decides to kidnap her. But Amalie is outraged and is very vocal with her kidnappers. She is tied and gagged onto a horse with said handsome highlander. You will have to read and find out how two different personalities deal with conflict and come together with the foundation of love.

I absolutely loved this book. I love the author's style of writing, it was witty and had many laugh out loud moments. Unlike one of the other reviewers I found it hilarious when the H couldn't understand why the h didn't know what he was talking about at times. So like a man. I loved both the H and h, they were likeable and I loved that there were no big misunderstandings.

If you want to be picky then there are small details that will bug the people who want absolute historical accuracy. For someone like me who enjoys a good historical romance with believable attention to the details, then this quite simply is the perfect book.

Danger, confusion, and a barbaric bunch of Scottish clansmen derail Lady Amalie Ellin's neat, tidy plan to impersonate a governess for a while to escape having to wed the imbecilic son of a rich duke.

How Amalie, who is accustomed to luxury and privilege, adapts to often harsh and always challenging circumstances enthralls. She had no idea freedom came with fear, risks, and peril in so many forms. But she is smart, resilient, self-reliant, and courageous with an imagination and play-acting ability that serves her well in dire situations.

Thayne MacGowan, in a spur-of-the-moment maneuver to protect ones dear to him, grabs the unknown "English governess" to use in a ploy to defer an out-and-out battle with the cruel Dunne-Fyne. The tiny, sassy, argumentative Amalie, with the amber-eyes, sets his libido on full alert. He knows it's just lust because his dead Mary is his only true love, but the little, sharp-tongued woman snuggled tight against his chest as they ride through freezing rain, makes his ache with need and wanting.

What a tangled web they weave when, in order to stay alive, Thayne and Amalie both say, in the presence of all, that they are married and Baby Mary is theirs.

The code of chivalry Thayne lives by is cold, lonely, punishing, and seemingly fruitless. He carries a burden of guilt for not being able to fulfill the promise to his father, on this deathbed. Thayne had been unable to hide Jamie's perfidies as his father had demanded. All knew of the new laird, Jamie's drunkenness, his gluttony, and his cruel womanizing. The old laird wanted to keep the name MacGowan noble, feared, revered, and sacrosanct.

Jackie Ivie creates secondary characters that pulsate with energy and intrigues as they ramp up the tension in the story.
