Lord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Ketchersid

Medieval Times, Intrigue and Mystery. Lords and Maidens. A great read.


He’s Fighting for his future—she’s running for her life.


It’s been a while since I’ve read a book set in this time period. I’m glad I did. It took me back to the days of jousting, chivalry, and  England in 1198 AD.

Jocelyn and Malcolm are thrown together due to circumstances and Jocelyn poses as Jack, a scrawny squire. Of course, this complicates things. Malcolm is dashing and noble but brings past hurts of his own he must overcome. Both characters face challenges from outside forces, but also from within their own hearts. This is a love story, one with obstacles and misunderstandings. Just like real life! I loved this story and these characters, the villains where truly villainous and Malcolm is a complex character. (Okay, so I might have swooned one or two times.)

I was transported back in time for a delightful, action-packed adventure.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, my opinion is my own.



Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows—either to the church or a husband—she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth.

Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite of her conniving ways.
Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.
