Book review: Ella Matthews, The Warrior’s Innocent Captive

The Warrior’s Innocent Captive

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…

This was such a good read! I really liked the way that events took place more or less along the same timeline as the first book in the series, as I have always enjoyed reading about the same, or similar events, through a different viewpoint. Erik is an interesting hero, with a strong back-story, and having ‘met him’ before, it was good to delve further into that story, as well as his attraction to Linota.

The characters are well-developed, and the story brilliantly-paced, keeping those pages turning throughout. Highly recommended!

About Ella

Ella Matthews lives and works in beautiful South Wales. When not thinking about handsome heroes she can be found walking along the coast with her husband and their two children (probably still thinking about heroes but at least pretending to be interested in everyone else).
