My thoughts …

Under the Warrior’s Protection is the new book in The House of Leofric series but works well as a standalone story.

The latest instalment follows sisters Linota and Katherine Leofric in the year 1331. The family is in disgrace after their father was executed for treason and their mother is becoming increasingly abusive. Their brother Braedon is marrying into the Ogmore family and has managed to secure a place for his sisters within the estate.

The sisters must make the journey to the Ogmore Estate but they need to be escorted on the long journey for their protection, and Jaryn Ashdown Earl of Borwyn and his men are tasked with this job.

Katherine and Linota are very different. Linota is young, sweet and pretty whilst Katherine is plain, strong willed and has no regard for her own safety. This makes Jaryn’s job much more difficult, as does the fact that he finds himself falling in love with her, despite the fact that she clearly hates him.

However, as they undertake the journey to Ogmore Estate, tragedy strikes and Jaryn and Katherine must overcome their feelings and work together to save themselves and their loved ones.

The story was well written and easy to read with a loveable hero as the lead. There is plenty of action with ambush and treachery at every turn as well as a slow burning passionate romance between the main characters. Fans of historical romance will love this story and it would be interesting to read the rest of the series.

About the author …
