Enriched (Knights of Brethren Book 4) Kindle Edition
A wealthy noblewoman with a heart of gold, a wounded knight closed off to love, and the sacrifices for a chalice that can bring healing.
Lady Karina lives in a convent and expects to become a nun someday. When her wealthy father asks her to help his textile business become more successful by marrying one of the popular Knights of Brethren, Karina complies, ever the dutiful daughter.
During a royal quest to find the sacred chalice, Torvald is called home to save his family’s estate through an arranged marriage to a wealthy maiden. Although willing to do his duty, he’s vowed never to give his heart to anyone after watching his father suffer heartbreak over a woman.
As Torvald weds the kind and lovely Karina, he resists the pull of attraction to his bride. Even though Karina feels the sting of Torvald’s rejection, she chooses to love him unconditionally. As he resumes his search for the chalice and puts his life in jeopardy, Karina makes the ultimate sacrifice for him. Will he have the chance to love her in return before it’s too late?
The real story of the Holy Grail continues . . .

Knights of Brethren #4
By Jody Hedlund
Torvald, one of the Knights of Brethren, has been called home - he must marry to save his family estate from ruin. He has no choice in the manner, though marriage is the last thing he wants. Marriage destroyed his father and he refuses to ruin himself by loving his wife. Love is a weakness and he refuses to fall into its entrapment. He'll marry and then return to his quest for the sacred chalice that holds the promise of healing for the queen, after all, he has a duty.
There is just one problem with Torvald's plans, Lady Karina is not only lovely in appearance but in spirit. Karina has spent the last three years in a convent fully intending to take her vows to the church when her father makes a request of her. Can she give up her dreams of being a nun and marry a man she has never met? Duty to her family finds her agreeing to her father's wishes but with no promise of a future marriage with love, she feels rejected. Can she love him and hope to change his mind?
As the threat of war draws ever closer Torvald does what he must in service to the kingdom all while fighting to keep his vow of never loving his wife. Karina does all that she can to keep Torvald safe even if it breaks her heart. And sacrificing all her happiness may be the only way she can save the man she has come to care for.
Enriched is the fourth book in the Knights of Brethren series and it in no way disappoints or backs away from the quest that has bound the Knights together. This book continues the quest into Hardanger Forest that was begun by Gunnar in Ensnared (Book 3). Now if you haven't read any of the previous books, I would recommend reading them first as this series needs to be read in order to fully understand and appreciate all the layers to the series. Each book builds on the previous one so reading out of order will throw you off.
As with all of Jody Hedlund's books, this is another must-read. The setting is medieval so if you love books that are set within this time frame and want them to be on the clean side of romance with not a lot of graphic anything you will want to add this to your tbr list. A perfect teen read selection.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.
This is a marriage of convenience story, which is one of my favorite tropes, and I loved the romantic tension because of that trope! This story also has grumpy/sunshine vibes, which added to my enjoyment of the story.
Torvald is resigned to marriage for financial reasons, but he is determined never to love his wife. Karina was going to be a nun, but she wants to help her family and is willing to marry Torvald. Seeing them fall for each other and work to overcome the obstacles keeping them apart was wonderful! I had to take a break when I was close to the end because life intervened, and I thought about the characters and wondered what was going to happen the whole time I was working on other things. I loved how it ended! This is a wonderful book, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
What do we do next? What's the safest move? Often we build a wall and boldly commit to never offering our heart so deeply again. And so we find our hero and heroine in this story...
In the previous book, Torvald took a detour from his quest to help the king find a precious relic, a chalice with the power to heal the queen, and returned home to an urgent summons from his family. Enriched now explains why and lets us follow his journey.
Suddenly required to marry Karina, a beautiful woman who had been just about to speak her vows at a convent, Torvald is willing to do his duty but no more. He holds his walls high and stubbornly refuses to even try for love in his marriage because he believes love destroyed his father. He will not make the same mistake.
Meanwhile Karina is shocked to find herself in a loveless marriage that need not be. She must now determine whether to build her own walls or to risk it all and attempt to love her husband through his walls.
In the midst of this awkward relationship, both Torvald and Karina find themselves thrust back into the search for the chalice. Nonstop danger and adventure surrounds the choices they make about love and sacrifice. Will they risk everything for each other?
