The Warrior’s Innocent Captive by Ella Matthews


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…


Fabulous and brimming with drama 
Linota has been kept in near isolation with her sister Katherine for most of her life but now her brother has married and the sisters are going to live with him and Erik is one of the people assigned to protect them on the journey
I liked Linota, she is kind, loving and adores her sister. The story looks at how she develops from a nervous lady to one who can hold her own and who knows what she wants. She challenged what I thought about her more than once and each time I loved her more because of it 
Erik is being blackmailed by someone intent on hurting his niece and everything he does is because of that however he does do some pretty awful things which made me go through phases of liking and disliking him. He is at heart honourable, strong, dedicated and talented at woodworking. He does what he can to keep Linota safe during everything, even rescuing her when he needed to but it made it so hard for me to get a read on his character although by the end I did totally love him
There is so much danger and drama in this book that it kept me on my toes and unable to stop reading. Linota and Erik captured my interest and heart and through everything I found myself routing for their happy ending 
Erik and Linota weren’t meant to get their happily ever after initially but they appeared in the previous books in the series and I’m so glad that they got a chance to tell their story and that I was able to read it
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance full of danger, drama and fabulous characters
