About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Enamored (Knights of Brethren, #1) by Jody Hedlund

Enamored (Knights of Brethren, #1)

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


Elinor and Maxim once shared a special connection as children, but it's been ten years since they've seen each other. What will their reunion be like? Will their friendship be as strong as ever? Well, let me tell you, there is a powerful chemistry between them, but there's also a major stumbling block. Elinor's uncle, the King, wants her to choose one of the twelve Knights of Brethren as her husband and Maxim isn't one of those knights. Will Elinor obey her uncle's wishes or will she heed Maxim's special call to her heart? What follows is a story that will captivate you and leave you wanting more!

Oh, how I love this book that is based on the classic tale of Excalibur. Enamored has adventure that makes your heart pound, romance that takes your breath away, and a faith message that will warm your heart and touch your soul. What's even better is that this book isn't limited to one age group: teens will certainly love it, but certainly no more than an 'ahem' year-old grandmother!

Author Jody Hedlund writes in several different genres, and she's made me a fan of her medieval/fantasy books. I highly recommend Enamored and I can't wait to see what's next in the Knights of Brethren series. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this 5-star read!

I received an advanced reader copy from the author but was in no way obligated to write a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Jody Hedlund is the best-selling author of over twenty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award. She lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy teens, and five spoiled cats.

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.
