|Plot Summary of Knight In My Bed|
Warner, Apr 2002, 384 pp.
In 1330 in the Western isles off the Scottish coast, the MacInnis clan hold Laird Donall MacLean prisoner because they believe his brother Iain killed his wife Lileas, sister to their clan leader, lady Isolde. While the chieftains want revenge by killing Donall, Lady Isolde knows her people cannot deal with the aftermath from the much more powerful MacLean clan.
When Isolde meets Donall she asks him whether Iain killed her sister. He says no, but he has some doubts as he realizes his brother has quite a temper. To save her clan, Isolde wants Donall to impregnate her so that the child binds the two clans, but she wants no marriage between them. She further explains to a chained Donall that she will save his life if he agrees to an alliance of convenience. To her chagrin, Isolde realizes that in spite of drinking potions of non-attraction, she finds Donall quite appealing. Donall also wonders how he could feel desire for her after the inhospitable imprisonment that he has suffered at the hands of her men. Though Isolde and Donall fall in love, the specter of her sister keeps them apart.
Sue-Ellen Welfonder provides fans of fourteenth century Scottish romantic suspense with an exciting action packed tale. The story line is typical of the sub-genre, but KNIGHT IN MY BED makes for fun reading as the mystery of who killed Isolde's sister unfolds. Though the villain is obvious early in the plot, Ms. Welfonder furbishes a strong tale that thoroughly entertains readers.
