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 honorable 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…


The Warrior Knight and the Widow is author Ella Matthews debut novel. It was an excellent story and one I thoroughly enjoyed! I look forward to seeing what Ms. Matthews has for us in the future, she’s definitely an author I plan on following!

Sir Braedan Leofric is known as “The Beast” and the right-hand man to the Earl of Ogmore. His latest mission is to retrieve his liege’s only daughter and return her to her father’s estate. But returning safely will be more difficult than he thought when the Earl’s sworn enemy is determined to capture and marry Lady Ellena.

Lady Ellena Swein was married once before and it was a nightmare. She has no desire to remarry especially to her father’s sworn enemy Lord Copsi. When Lord Copsi’s men attack the traveling party, Braeden & Ellena are left on their own to make their way back to her father’s castle.

Braeden was such a wonderful hero! He is a brave and honorable man who just wants to repair the damage his father did to his family’s good name and fortune. While traveling with Lady Ellena he tries to ignore the attraction he has for her, knowing he can never be good enough for her. I really liked Ellena, she’s kind-hearted, passionate, and just wants to live her life on her own terms. After her disastrous marriage, she has no desire to be with another man, but yet finds herself attracted to Braeden. Together as these two try to escape the enemy and return to Castle Ogmore, we see them form a friendship and struggle to deny the chemistry between them.

What a fabulous couple and storyline! Ms. Matthews did a wonderful job in this her debut novel. I have to admit, once I picked up this book I didn’t want to put it down! An extremely well-written book with a fabulous couple, wonderful secondary characters, a storyline that captivates and pulls you in and an absolutely perfect ending! I loved this book and highly recommend it!
