The Warrior Knight and the Widow by Ella Matthews #Review #HistoricalRomance #BlogTour


Protected by The Beast

Undone by the man

Racing cross-country pursued by danger, widow Lady Ellena Swein isn’t pleased to be taken back to her father’s castle. But with his knight Sir Braedan Leofric, also known as The Beast, as her captor, she has little choice! Ellena is surprised by his honourable and protective nature, even if she shouldn’t trust him. And when all seems to conspire against them, Braedan’s secret could either extinguish the spark between them or make it burn brighter.



My Review:

Travel back to the times when there were castles and knights, when travel was on foot, by horse or horse drawn carriage and when the Lord ruled their lands in this action packed historical romance! Sir Braedan Leofric has been sent to bring Lady Ellena Swein, the widowed daughter of his Lord, back to her father. However, there are others who wish to marry her to gain the lands she now controls and they’re not above using force or kidnapping her to get their way! On a long journey fraught with danger, will Braedan be able to keep her safe and deliver her to her father? How will she react when she discovers his promised reward for doing so?

This is an enthralling read with a feisty lady determined never to let a man control her again and a man nicknamed the Beast who is actually honourable and protective. It is a lovely read to escape into with great characters, plenty of action and a slow burn but potentially passionate romance. Her first marriage sounds like an abusive nightmare but she’s made a much better life for herself now and really doesn’t like her father interfering. She’s adamant she’ll never marry again but that’s before she got to know Braedan . . . . He doesn’t think he has the status to ever be good enough for a lady like Ellena but his attraction to her continues to grown as they travel on their dangerous journey. There are secrets shared, obstacles to be overcome, fights to be fought and enemies to be killed before this romance concludes with an amazing epilogue. It is a lovely story to read if you’re wanting to be distracted from our current reality and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys reading historical romance.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
