Review: ‘Enamored’ (Knights of Brethren) by Jody Hedlund

About The Book:
During a time when legends were born . . .


A princess in need of a husband, a young Sage who cannot have her, and a web of deceit that threatens their love.

Having been raised by her childless aunt and uncle, the king and queen, Princess Elinor finds herself the only heir to the throne of Norvegia. As she comes of age, she must choose a husband to rule beside her, but she struggles to make her selection from among a dozen noblemen during a weeklong courtship.

With aspirations to become the wisest man in the land, Maxim is summoned home by his father Rasmus, a Royal Sage. Reunited with Elinor, once his closest friend, Maxim is quickly enamored with her even though he can never be considered a prospect for her husband.

Elinor’s feelings for Maxim are rekindled too . . . until she learns he has been unwillingly drawn into Rasmus’s scheme to take control of the throne. With the kingdom under attack both from within and without, can Elinor and Maxim overcome the deceit spinning around them? Or will it destroy their love once and for all?

The real story of Excalibur.
About Jody Hedlund
Jody Hedlund is the author of over thirty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award.

Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).
When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Any man who chooses deception to better himself will forfeit his greatest asset, his honor’

I have been looking forward with great anticipation for this series. I have read every single one of Jody Hedlund’s books and I love her medieval series’ so much!

Here Hedlund brings us a series featuring princesses, kings, queens, noble knights, sages, along with danger and deception. I loved following Elinor and Maxim through the pages of this book as they realized their love for each other and trust in God to guide them through the pitfalls that are before them as danger looms on nearly every front. I cannot WAIT for the second book!!

My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is my own.
