    • I really enjoyed this medieval romance with a Christmas time theme The lead characters were both likable, good people who find love together when they meet after the hero is sent to be the lord of the keep where the heroine lives The hero lost an eye in an accident when he was younger, so he is a bit tortured about how people react to his physical appearance The heroine does not care about his eye, she knows from personal experience that it s what inside a person that counts I enjoyed the writin [...]

    • DNF D Gawd what a boring book Maybe I have the attention span of a gnat since everybody else loves this book except me but there is no way I can struggle through three hundred pages of this book All these characters do is ponder on their insecurities, moon over each other, and talk, talk, talk It makes me cranky.First we have Ranulf, who is horribly scarred and is missing an eye with a flaccid eyelid Yes Sinclair uses the word flaccid I happen to love beasty stories so my first thought was Grat [...]

    • There were so many wonderful aspects to this book First, it is set in a very interesting time The young King Henry II and his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, have just ascended to the throne of England after decades of civil war The author s historical research is impressive, and she weaves it seamlessly into the story Ranulf, the hero, is close to Henry and one of his most valued military commanders Ranulf is scarred, both physically and emotionally He has just inherited a vast estate in Northumbri [...]

    • I saw this recommended as a beastly booke hero has been badly burned in a fire, and he is missing an eye And he refuses to wear an eye patchMr One Eyed Bad Ass There is some great chemistry between the beastly hero and the heroine who is determined to protect her sisters and village Ever since reading Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley, I have shied away from longer books I am still traumatized by the never ending KA saga although the book was very entertaining, the length was hideous, and I gravita [...]

    • Beautiful medieval romance, much better than I expected This is my first book by this author and I really liked her style The Hh are both scarred and insecure When they meet, sparks fly Even though the story takes place in a timeframe of a few days, it doesn t feel rushed We can see them falling in love and understand why it happens so quickly There is a lovely Christmas holiday feel to the book The story takes place during Christmastide and we get small tidbits at the beginning of each chapter [...]

    • This is a great Medieval Christmas romance Sinclair begins each chapter with a tradition of Christmastide or Twelfthtide the 12 days of Christmas , as celebrated then, for a wonderful holiday touch.Set in the 12th century, it s the story of Ranulf, a knight of King Henry II, who is scarred literally and figuratively as a result of his heroism of the past and shunned by most women He is a warrior known for his feats of valor, but with the death of his father and cousin, he reluctantly is persuade [...]

    • This is not a sappy historical romance It is a very good story though Bronwyn is strong willed and intelligent, and her husband Ranulf is honorable, brave and not used to kindness Theirs is a true love I loved it, great read

    • Michele Sinclair has created one of those romantic couples that I just love to read A scarred hero who has buried his feelings and emotions so deep he never expects to love or be loved and a heroine who looks past those scars into his soul And when they finally come together, the story only gets better.Ranulf is a reluctant new nobleman, taking over when a cousin dies and King Henry bestows the title and land on him We learn about Ranulf when the heroine s father finally tracks him down and very [...]

    • This book could have easily been a 5 star read for me if the middle had not been so sluggish I was not a fan of the first chapter of the book, but once Bronwyn and her sisters arrive on the page, the book became very enjoyable Ranulf and Bronwyn were strong characters that fit together beautifully Ranulf is a scarred warrior who has used his one eyed appearance to test and condemn others in order to keep himself apart Bronwyn is a strong leader with a secret insecurity about her appearance, whil [...]

    • I did find the little bits at the beginning of the chapters interesting, information about the 12 days of Christmas, but I thought they seemed a little bit out of place and not really fitting with the story Yes, the story took place over the twelve days of Christmas, each chapter a day, but it still didn t really fit I found the story itself pretty boring It was very long considering not an awful lot happened There was a lot of repetition which could have been cut How many times did it have to g [...]

    • What a wonderful story about the ugly duckling this has to be one of my all time favorite historical romance books In the Christmas Knight we meet Ranolf, a hardened solider with an obvious physical flaw who has recently become Lord of Hunswick against his will To top it off, he is being forced to marry a daughter of the late protector of the keep Unknown to him, one daughter waits at the keep that will love him for who he is and not what he appears to be While there are several different forces [...]

    • Man am I exhausted after that read While I think the story line was a good one, at times it felt like it was too wordy I didn t think it would ever get going But it did, thank goodness While I liked the hero and heroine there were times ok maybe lots of times I wanted to shake them both until their teeth rattled My goodness, her insecurities and uncertainty and him trying to make her jealous or tricking her into telling the truth drove me nuts I hate that kind of stuff Ugh While it wasn t my fav [...]

    • This was a really great book What an epic story that kept you engaged Had some great twists and turns, and I loved the way that each chapter started with an explanation of the 12 days of Christmas Now I m off to find out if Edythe has a book of her own URGH No book for her so annoying they left that hanging

    • This was a charming story The little snippets of information at the beginning of each chapter added an enjoyable lesson to the fiction.Now I need to read on to see if Lily and Edythe find their own HEAs.

    • 1st couple of pages are a lil confusing.i didnt even understand the italicized words on pg1is book is already not what i thought it wase guys disfigured missing an eyet that that matters,i like readin about the scarred war heroes somtimes,but the description didnt hint at ranulf bein like this at alley didnt even say what the guys name was on the back,so at the beginning of the book it took me a lil while to figure out who the main guy was shrugged his chin i wasn t aware you could shrug your ch [...]

    • I liked this holiday novel a lot It reminded me of a sexier version of Beauty and the Beast I don t know if that s what Sinclair was going for but it made me think of the fairytale What I loved was how it wasn t love at first sight There was a tension that grew into a passion, which for me made the couple likeable They were flawed in a way that made them a good team and that s something I can dig Don t get me wrong, there was plenty of heat between the couple in the bedroom scenes, and it s eno [...]

    • DNF 20% Unfortunately this one is really boring up to this point, and I don t feel like it s worth the effort to continue.

    • The Christmas Knight Zebra Historical Romance Sinclair, Michele He loved, and was loved in return I picked this novel up quite by chance and found myself ignoring everything around me as I devoured it I have not read such an intriguing and character relationship driven novel in quite some time This novel is about a Knight named Ranulf de Gunnar who has been ordered by his new King to take over Hunswick Castle While on his boat trip back to the castle an accident occurs on the ship he is on and a [...]

    • The Christmas Knight by Michele Sinclair is a Historical Romance with a Beauty and the Beast type theme This was the second time I have read this story the first being November of 2013 and now this month September 2015 With that being said I enjoyed this story very much The premise of the story is about a knight Ranulf, the favored commander of the new King Henry II On the death of a distant cousin, Lord Anscombe, Ranulf becomes the new Lord Anscombe by decree and travels to take up his new posi [...]

    • When I saw that Sinclair had this book coming out, I was disappointed that it was not from her Highlander series I think she must have gotten stumped with the stories for the twin brothers and I am nervous that she is taking a longer break or just flat out done with them sniffle This story was fantastic Ranulf has had a hard life and his scared visage has made him a hard man and a very good commander for the new King Henry II Ranulf is or less forced to be lord of Hunswick by the king and is es [...]

    • I wasn t going to read this book all in one go, but I found that once I started it was near impossible to put down Bronwyn is the eldest of three sisters who are each beautiful in there own right, though Bronwyn seems to be overlooked by men the most I think that this is due to her lack of confidence in her looks combined with how strong her character was Given where she was raised there would have been very few men who would be able to match her When word comes of her fathers death and news of [...]

    • For the first 3 4 of this book, I would have rated it a 3 1 2 I found both Ranulf and Bronwyn well developed characters and found it brave and honest of the author to have Ranulf, a warrior, have lost his eye And I thought her way of having Bronwyn likewise scarred was a wise way to develop their bond.But then, 3 4 of the way through, what had started out as an interesting story was ruined by Bronwyn stupidly leaving to get a tapestry Could the author find no other way to have her meet up with t [...]

    • I m a sucker for historical Highland romances It s been a while since I picked up one of Michele s books, but the mood struck me yesterday I searched the internet to remember what her titles were, then I found one I hadn t read and bought it I m glad I did And, yup, it kept me transfixed enough to where I read it in a day.The plot is well developed and kept me turning pages, even well into the night The characters, though not exceptionally deep, are well written and engaging Bronwyn is the typic [...]

    • I have a new author to read Really enjoyed this book Really liked the explanations of the old English holiday Twelefthtide was explaned at the beginnning of each chapter The author wove them into the chapter in some manner or other The romance was not rushed as seems to be done in other books Also the growth of both the male and female leads is given ample time The is a lengthy read coming in at 473 pages The one one aspect that stopped me from giving this 5 stars was the constant referrence to [...]

    • A medieval Christmas story blending the traditional rituals of Twelfth Night with romance and understanding The incorporation of little history lessons at the start of each chapter is really nice I thoroughly enjoyed the excerpts They weren t overly intrusive, but interesting, taking a fairly standard historical romance to a book that means Christmas.I really liked this one It s a clever, unusual story which ticks the boxed for genre expectations including light and easy read Sinclair gives us c [...]

    • First read in paperback 2012 I really enjoyed this tale of a medieval knight with a physical disfigurement that makes him cold and unreachable to all but his closest circle of friends and his long time friend, the king Bronwyn is the oldest of three sisters and has realized she will never marry because of her own scars Two people with scars are thrown together and fate decides their future This book was very interesting with the factual information it shared about Christmas celebrations during t [...]

    • The good news is that Christmas isn t a humongous part of the story, but the story takes place around Christmas If you re a history nut, the beginning of each chapter will be fun to read If you re a sucker for the scarred emotionally physically hero and the under appreciated heroine scenario, go ahead and pick this one up, you won t regret it view spoiler The only thing I have a problem with is that they didn t tell you why Tyr was so against marriage, or what happened to him her sister hide spo [...]
