Wedding for a Knight is the first book by Sue-Ellen Welfonder that I have read and I must say it was a treat. This charming historical romance is set in 14th century medieval Scotland. The brooding hero, Magnus MacKinnon, has returned from war financially ruined. He is so emotionally scarred that he almost considers himself nothing short of a failure. Tied down to a wife that he didn't choose, his pride is seriously hurt. To make matters worse, he is now married to the woman that has haunted his dreams for years, someone he would have preferred to woo properly. Lady Amicia MacLean has been in love with Magnus for years and she is determined to make the marriage work. Strong willed, Amicia is not easily defeated. She is a wonderful heroine. The secondary cast of characters is as engaging as the two main ones. With a touch of magic and humor woven into the plot, Ms. Welfonder brings the reader quite an enjoyable story. If you love highlander stories, this one is for you. I definitely recommend it.
