Ensnared (Knights of Brethren, #3) by Jody Hedlund

Ensnared (Knights of Brethren, #3)

During a time when legends were born . . .


A poor maidservant struggling to survive, a brave knight who secretly loves her, and a chalice that has the power to unite them.

Nursemaid to the Earl of Likness’s two young daughters, Mikaela despises the earl for his cruelty to his subjects, and she longs for the day when she can make a difference in the lives of her suffering friends and family.

As one of the Knights of Brethren, Gunnar is on a mission to find the sacred chalice for the queen, convinced it’s the cure for her deadly bleeding disease. His quest takes him home, and he soon learns his brother, the earl, may know more about the chalice than he lets on.

As Gunnar reunites with Mikaela, the maiden he’s always loved, he tries to keep his feelings for her a secret, desperate to protect her from his brother. But as they venture into the perilous Hardanger Forest and battle to survive, will Gunnar realize her love is worth fighting for?

The real story of the Holy Grail . . .


This is the third book of the Knights of Brethren series and this series just keeps getting better! Another courageous knight is searching for the Holy Grail but there are many obstacles along the way. Gunnar is very handsome and a noble knight indeed, but he admits that he is a "slayer of hearts". His heart, however, belongs to his childhood friend, but Mikaela has very different feelings about him. Gunnar broke her heart several years ago so how can she trust him now? How can there possibly be a 'happily ever after'?

If you enjoy a story with kisses that make you swoon, incredible physical chemistry between a knight and maiden, and an adventure full of twists and turns, this is the book for you. Ensnared is a clean romance that targets the young adult audience but it's also a great read for older readers. I was totally 'ensnared' with this medieval romance, and you will be also!

I received a digital copy of this book from the author but there was no obligation for 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.
