The Warrior’s Innocent Captive written by Ella Matthews, publisher Mills & Boon, is available NOW in ebook and paperback format.
An impossible choice:
His family or love
As steward to the Earl of Borwyn, Erik Ward had only admired sheltered noblewoman Linota Leofric from afar – until he has to escort her on a dangerous journey. When she’s kidnapped, he rescues the courageous beauty, revelling in finally having her in his arms. But Erik has a secret plan to reunite his family – now he’s forced to choose between that and his growing feelings for Linota…
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the blog blitz celebrating and promoting the launch of book three in The House of Leofric trilogy. I really enjoyed returning to Medieval England and to a world of castles, noblemen, warriors and wars of land and propriety. You can find my review for Book Two in the series here Under the Warrior’s Protection by Ella Matthews @ellamattauthor @MillsandBoon @rararesources #blogtour #bookreview #historicalromance | kraftireader (wordpress.com)
Book Three, The Warrior’s Innocent Captive, focuses on the younger Leofric sibling, Linota, a young woman along with her older sister that was badly treated most of their lives. Now free of the confines of home the girls are on their way to live with their older brother and his new wife.
Erik Ward is one of the warriors that has been tasked to escort the sisters on their arduous journey to their new home. Erik can’t ignore the beauty of Linota and understands with his upbringing he can only be friends with this young woman but this does not stop him desiring of more.
When Linota’s life is put in danger Erik races to her rescue but finds himself faced with a dilemma of the heart with a glimmer of hope from his past causing him to betray what he now holds dear. Can Erik keep both his past and present safe from any danger?
The Warrior’s Innocent Captive can easily be read as a standalone novel but it was interesting to learn of Linota’s journey to freedom and happiness. I would therefore, highly recommend reading all the books in the series to fully appreciate the history with the continuing storyline and characters.
Ella Matthews has created a gorgeous medieval romance that is filled with danger, lessons from the past and passions of the heart.
