#Review: TWELFTH KNIGHT'S BRIDE by E Elizabeth Watson


  4 of 5 stars

Lady Aileana Grant never thought she'd get caught as she stole a few vegetables from a traveling MacDonald crew, but Laird James MacDonald chases down the lad or so he thinks back to the castle. When he learns the identity of the thief he demands her in marriage as recompense. A deal is made that Aileana was handfasted to James for a fortnight only at which time she'd be returned to her clan unharmed. Neither James or Aileana could ever foresee what two weeks in each other's company can do.

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Watson and I really enjoyed it. The bits of history she interweaves in the story is interesting and makes the book more engrossing. I really liked James--he was so honorable and lived up to his part of the bargain at great personal loss for him. When Aileana jumped into action to help wounded soldiers when the MacDonald stronghold is attacked won her the approval of the clan. Both James and Aileana grow and learn to disregard previously held beliefs against the other's clan. With a few twists and turns  this book winds down to a happily ever after ending.

I voluntarily read the advanced reader copy and all opinions are my own.
