The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Can you sit and say that you don’t want a man that is passionate, has charisma, loyal and the strength to shake the foundation built around your heart? I think not. I have that intense desire to climb right in to one of Knights book and allow myself to be totally seduced by the hero.

Emilia was feisty, fierce, stubborn, determined and a survivalist. She was strong when needed and devoted. She never expected to be betrayed. Let alone by her own family. Life takes her in a new direction once she e

Guarded By The Warrior

Book 5 is another hit in the series. Eliza Knight has again written a series worthy of reading from the beginning.
In this novel Ian and Emilia fall deeply in love after she has been brought to Ian by The Bruce for protection. She escaped from The Ross clan who were evil and only wanted her to produce a child for Ina and Marmaduke . The man that her father gave her to was Padrig who was crippled and paralyzed and could not bed her. Ina wanted her husband to get her with chi

Emily's and Ian - Book 5

Please read this book, it's different than any of the others. Very seldom do I cry or laugh, especially reading a book, but this one had me crying at the end and laughing at Ian's wit throughout the book. I read several books a week and this book raised my emotions to the surface. Ms Knight certainly ended this series on a very high note! Best book in the series and I think you'll agree when you read it. At the first, some things were mentioned that I didn't understand, b

Very entertaining story of Highland Romance. A few surprises sprinkled in and strong main characters make this a novel you won't want to put down. Ian and Emilia made a wonderful couple and their past pain united them in an understanding relationship. It took time for them to get to know each other but their attraction started from the moment they met. The erotic scenes were very steamy! Eliza Knight never disappoints.

Good, but not my favorite book.

Even though the storyline wasn't completely believable, I was okay with it. I wasn't thrilled with the way the ending was just to quick of a turn around, because the beginning took to much time. If felt more like a square peg being forced into a round hole. Still, Eliza Knight is a very good writer and it would not have worked if she wasn't so experienced.

Traitors, betrayal and live

A woman betrayed by her father and sold in marriage to traitors of Scotland. A man newly made Laird of his clan. Both have insecurities about who they are but both have hearts full of live that needs sharing. Robert the Bruce brings these two together amid dangers and an enemy determined to kill. How these two find love amid the dangers is thrilling. I could not put this down until I finished.

This book was a delightful addition to the series. It was full of humour, intrigue, and emotions. I have really enjoyed the characters. This story was interesting, entertaining, and different. Eliza is an exceptional author.

Meet your perfect man in Ian Matheson!

The prologue introduces us to a nasty piece of goods – Ina Ross, whose mind is demented, yet cunning. One night her cousin, Padrig, was brought to her door, more dead than alive. Ina and husband were schemers. Unfortunate , Padrig was one of their pawns. Lady Emilia, used as payment for the debt her family found themselves, is another pawn upon the chess board these two are placed.

After three months of marriage to the bed-ridden, emancipated Padrig, he surpr
Guarded by the Warrior (Conquered Bride Series Book 5) by Eliza Knight was a fantastic Medieval Scottish Romance. While, Book 5, it can be read as a stand alone, with no issues.
This story draw me in, within the first chapter and held my attention throughout, to the very end.
Ian and Emilia were such great characters! Ian was sexy, protective and fiercely loyal. He also felt unworthy of his position as new Laird, after his father's death.
Emilia was feisty, felt betrayed by her family and determi

The story of Guarded by a Warrior is interesting because Emilia is married off to the enemy of all of the other bride books (Conquered Series as well as Stolen Bride Series). She is married off to Padrig who is the cousin of Ina Ross who has plagued the entire series with her disastrous antics against Scotland and the heroes within these series. Laird Ian Matheson has newly become laird after his father’s passing and finds himself caring for his 12 half-brothers and sisters. Lady Emilia is broug ...more

Great story

Eliza Knight weaves a great story in this book. Ian is the Laird of Clan Matheson but he has to prove to his clan the he can take care of them and his fathers illegitimate children! If that isn't enough stress Robert the Bruce brings his "cousin" to be a governess to the 12 children. Lady Emilia doesn't even know if she likes children. She is there to be protected from Ina Ross and her husband. When you read this book you know why she needs the protection and a few other surprises.

Absolutely loved this! Ian Matheson is a hero for the ages; Emilia was a great match. The story was a page turner and an easy read. A little suspense; a few surprises; lots of chivalry & flirtatiousness...another hit by Eliza Knight!!!
