Deborah magically takes you to stand amidst the heather & mist of another time...breathtaking beautiful, award-caliber writing." -- Lynsay Sands, NYTimes Bestselling Author

MacGillivray writes with a style and grace befitting noble Knights and Clans of Yore…I all but inhaled this novel…Highly recommended! -- Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

MacGillivray’s wonderful grasp of medieval Scotland, transports the reader into the era…I enjoyed the subtle switch between humour and drama. -- Anne Whitfield, author of Long Distance Love

In Scotland's darkest hour, an English warrior dressed all in black has come for her. Blessed with the kenning, Lady Tamlyn MacShane foresaw this day, when the ruthless Lord Julian Challon would conquer her land -- and her heart. She is determined to resist him...but she is no match for his strength...or his sensuality...

~ A Resolute Lord ~

To Julian, the proud Scotswoman should be nothing more than a captive. Yet Tamlyn's fiery Beauty ensnares him, body and soul. Now, the warrior known as the Black Dragon is in danger of falling under the spell that cannot be broken---the spell of love....

I won't repeat the plot synopsis since many have already done so and I'll keep this short. Deborah MacGillivray has written some good books, but this is not one of them. I agree totally with the reviewer who mentioned this was like a poor copy of Elizabeth Lowell's Untamed. Don't waste your money.

NOT SOMETHING I'D GO OUT OF MY WAY TO GET.

SEEMED LIKE IT COULD HAVE BEEN MORE TIGHTLY WRITTEN, AND I FOUND MYSELF SKIMMING THE BOOK ABOUT MIDWAY THROUGH (I MADE THE JOKE TO MYSELF THAT NOT ONLY WAS IT "A RESTLESS KNIGHT" BUT "A RESTLESS READER.)

I thought the plot was thin and the characters one-dimensional. Reading this book was boring - it had no "holding" power. The only thing good about this book is when you are finished with it.

Personally i thought this book was awful and overused. I even tried to read another of the authors books, hoping that this was just a miss, but they all seem to be the same- not terribly creative, some seriously overused plots, awful dialogue, and nothing new or interesting. Personally in this book i hated Julien- hated his attitude, hated the way he treated everyone- if i wanted to read a 'true to life' book about how men treated women, i'd have went to the nonfiction section.

And, just as a side note, isnt it weird that all the people that give this book great reviews are in this authors book club, and thanked in her book for their support. And, also, how a lot of negative reviews seem to be disappearing? Either someone is a little to staunch a supporter, or the authors book club is being a little nefarious.

I tried. I really really tried to read this book. I forced myself to read more than half of it, but then I had to give up. The plot was boring and I felt like I have read it a billion other times in a billion other boring books. The dialogue was awful, the characters were flat.

I admit it--I read only a few sample pages...and it was a struggle to read that much. What amazingly cliched and cloying prose! Whew! Hard to believe this wasn't issued by a vanity press.

This book certainly wasn't terrible or a waste of time to read but after all the 5 star reviews I guess I was expecting something better. The characters were basically likable, their romance worked well, I liked the medieval setting, but I didn't find the paranormal elements all that well integrated and I think this book would have worked better as a straight historical romance because the historical background was I think the best part of the story. This book was a pleasant enough read but not really a must-read.

The book was just so, so. I found myself falling asleep, wanted it to move forward. I can't help but feel I read this plot, maybe in another book?
Not worth the buy.
