Kindles in the Wild – Warden – Montana Ash – June 8, 2021

Only my kids would head out in the car in Florida and not take their swimsuits. Admittedly, we were just really heading for the zoo and then anywhere the wind took us, but seriously! It’s Florida you should always beach ready. Although that didn’t stop us from heading to the beach on such a fine sunny day.

We ended up on the wrong side of the inlet to swim anyway. We walked out as far as we could to check out where the ocean meets the river, and so Evan could get some fantastic pictures from his drone (shhh. Don’t tell anyone), and we even walked under the road onto the fishing catwalk, check out the water rushing past below us, to check out the sights.

Of course, with all this downtime I had the perfect opportunity to read my book. Hah! You knew that was coming right! This is a book that I keep hearing about in different reader groups, but I just hadn’t had the opportunity to read it yet. I have no idea what I was waiting for! This book is a fantastic read! There is so much action and danger and the love connection is totally swoon worthy. And look the cover matches perfectly with the backdrop for the day.

This is one of those boos that I would 100% recommend, I think I am a series addict at this point, and the location is a must visit as well. But you might want to bring your swimsuits. I’m just saying.

Happy Reading

Warden (The Elemental Paladins Book 1)

Published to Amazon on March 23, 2020

Author Montana Ash

Ryker is a paladin. An ancient knight, born to protect those precious few who hold powers over the elements. He is bound by honour, courage and loyalty. But when tragedy strikes he forsakes everything he stands for, vowing never to serve again. He opens his home to other rejected and dishonoured knights … but never his heart. That is, until a sarcastic, sword-wielding, miniature Warden barges into his life, bringing chaos and mayhem to his carefully ordered world. Will he forgive himself for past mistakes? Or will old wounds continue to scar his future? Max is different. She has a strange affinity to nature and finds herself constantly causing disasters wherever she goes. What’s more, strange creatures stalk her every step, their relentless pursuit driving her to the brink of exhaustion. Stumbling upon a gaggle of hot modern-day knights seems too good to be true but she can’t deny they have the answers she’s looking for. Too bad their Captain is a growly, insensitive jerk who insults her every time he opens his gorgeous mouth. Should she trust her instincts and allow herself to hope for the first time in her life? Or will her fierce independence cause her to lose the one thing she has always craved? A home.

Official published review:

No need for protection

Such a fantastic story! I love the strong female characters, and the strength of the knights moral code, well most of the knights anyway. This book is really a new concept in the PNR realm for me and I can’t wait to read more! There was so much action and intrigue that I was caught up in the story before I knew it. And the romance was just amazing! The ending was a little abrupt, but it was just because I didn’t want it to end. I have so many other books to read, but I have just fallen down the book series rabbit hole and have to read more to see what happens. I need to know!

5 stars


Montana is a self-confessed book junkie. Although she loves reading all genres from romance to crime fiction to sci fi, her not-so-guilty pleasure is paranormal romance. Alpha men, just a little bit damaged, and Alpha women who don’t seem to know they need looking after, are a favourite combination of hers. Throw in some steamy sex scenes, a touch of humour, and a little violence and she is in heaven! Her overactive (and overindulged) imagination could only take so much before the many voices wanted out. Thus, Montana’s journey into the wonderful world of writing. She is a scientist by day, having grown up in country New South Wales, Australia. Writing about ancient knights, demons and shapeshifters is such a delicious contradiction to her day job in the laboratory, that she doesn’t see the voices stopping anytime soon!
