Plenty of action and even a touch of the supernatural which adds an interesting layer to the story. Ms Carter gathers together an interesting cast of secondary characters but the one who really stands out is the villainous, cunning and truly diabolical Drefan...a formidable enemy. - Rakes & Rascals
Warrior’s Surrender surpassed my expectations. As with the author’s last book, the research and authenticity of settings, events and characters was superb. - Wordfrenzy
I loved the feelings I got from this story. I grew up reading stories similar by authors such as Julie Garwood and Jude Deveraux. There is nothing better than a story where the hero is loyal, brave and honourable, while also having vulnerability in his love for his heroine. - Stacey is Sassy
Elizabeth Ellen Carter writes beautiful prose. Her descriptions of countryside, customs and people transported me to Medieval England ...a complex, page turning thriller that is also a story of resilience, rebuilding and finding love. Without using any modern psycho-babble, she creates a terrifying villain who is quite obviously a psychopath. – Lolly Russell
For those who like a generous but tasteful splash of hot and spicy in their romance, but also value a well-researched, historically accurate setting and an engaging story, Warrior's Surrender is a great find. Ms Carter's writing reminds me of Georgette Heyer – Story Enthusiast
