REVIEW – The Knight’s Maiden in Disguise

Good Afternoon lovelies! I’m happy to announce that we’re all moved in to our new home which means blogging can start again 🙂 Today I’m taking part in a mini blog blitz for Ella Matthews’ The Knight’s Maiden in Disguise. Thank you to both Ella and Rachel’s Random Resources for this opportunity.

Risking her life

To save a knight!

Disguising herself as her late twin brother keeps Avva Carpenter, and her family, safe. Until Sir William Devereux arrives in her town. As the castle’s stable master, Avva can’t avoid the knight—or the desire he instantly stirs in her. He’s everything she never knew a nobleman could be: honest, kind, brave. When danger surrounds them, the only way to help William is to reveal her true identity, but can she trust him enough?

Avva has no need or desire to trust noblemen, something that has kept her alive during her time posing as her dead twin brother in a town run by the quite frankly evil Baron Caerden. She works as a stable master, spending her days looking after the horses and attempting to remain unnoticable in a town known for the ruination of it’s women.

All of that changes when Sir William Devereux arrives in town hoping to read Baron Caerden for a visit from King Edward III. Instead of a simple baron looking after his people, he finds a town devoid of women and a sinister plot a foot. But a strange desire for the Stable Master has him seek the man out, only to discover that the stable master is no man at all…

What follows is a fast paced read which I can’t delve much more into without ruining the whole plot! The characters are well written and the main villain is terrifying. Avva herself is a fearsome warrior, unafraid of putting herself in harms way if it means protecting others. Sir William fustrated me with his vow to never fall in love or take a wife but it does make for a lovely bit of romance!

Overall I enjoyed this novel, Avva is what I like to see in my historical romances as she is no shrinking violet and her dedication to her younger brothers is admirable. Sir William is swoon worthy at some points whilst Baron Caerden honestly gave me spine chills as he is truely wicked!

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
