Knight of My Dreams by Lynsay Sands

Originally appeared in the print anthology A Mother's Way, under the title "Mother May I?"

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands comes a classic short story of a knight in need of a bride …

Lady Alice knows she is not the type to entice a man. She's too voluptuous, too intelligent, too strong minded. Why, she even reads! But then Jonathan, Earl of Fairley, arrives at court. Tall, dark and handsome, the knight is any woman's dream. And he has just been ordered by the king to find a bride … and Alice is to help him!

Jonathan has been evading his mother's matchmaking schemes for years, so why does she insist that Lady Alice isn't for him? Alice is only to aid in his search for a bride, yet Jonathan can't help but be distracted by her glorious hair—the color of a sunset—and a figure that is like a lush berry about to burst to full ripeness … Has Jonathan fallen prey to love?

My review:
What’s a mother to do?  The only remaining heir Jonathan, Earl of Fairley needs to get married and produce offspring.  He has rejected every eligible female his mother has introduced him to.  So being a smart mom she tries a little reverse psychology and introduces him to a female she feels won’t do. 
Lynsay Sands is one of my very favorite authors.  She writes fun and sexy vampires and hysterical historicals.  Knight of My Dreams falls into the latter category and while not as outragesly funny as some of her other work still a fun read.
