Longing for Her Forbidden Viking

Ambitious Aevir, Viking warrior and freed son of an enslaved mother, lacks only an elite, wealthy bride to complete his rise in the world. Unfortunately, Saxon Ellan would come with nothing, and would even cost Aevir, since he’d have to buy off the man her father has pledged her to. Amidst Danish ...

Her Viking Warrior

Her Viking Warrior is an interesting blend of old school romance ideals (home and hearth and the power of alpha manhood are celebrated) and new school ones (so is the power of female ingenuity, toughness and fitness for leadership in battle).  The book does a fairly good job balancing these two dif ...

Edge of Control

When I discovered Megan Crane’s Edge series a few months ago, I fell instantly in love. Dystopian stories can be hit-or-miss for me; I like them but I get tired of reading about characters who feel like the entire world is against them. This series stands out because it is different; it puts a s ...

Edge of Obsession

I began the book the evening I downloaded it and stayed up until after one, unable to put it down until I got to its end. Yes. I read Edge of Obsession obsessively and I enjoyed the hell out of it. The book begins with a précis of the world as is now is. A hundred years ago, or so the stories w ...

The Pirate Bride

I had the hardest time rating this book. Mainly because I could not decide whether it was supposed to read as a parody of the old bodice rippers, or whether it actually was meant to be taken seriously. If this was meant to be a bit goofy, then that’s one thing. However, if this was supposed to be ...

To Sin With a Viking

Willingham revisits familiar territory with the sexy new release, To Sin With a Viking. She has written a number of other Viking romances, some full length and some novellas, so readers may already familiar with her treatment of these pillaging, alpha males. Readers will not be disappointed by Carag ...

The Norse King's Daughter

By
While reading this book, I alternated between liking it and…not. The book is light-hearted, more of a romantic comedy, in a style similar to G.A. Aiken. If you aren’t prepared to laugh at the hero seeking out the heroine's “woman-channel” as his “sap runs thick and hot” on the seven ...

Captured

Though she has started to get more attention, I still consider Helen Kirkman to be something of a buried treasure. Her distinctive style fits her chosen time period well, and every time I pick up one of her books, I feel transported back to the Dark Ages and the clashes between various English peo ...

ErinSong

(Ms. Groe now writes as Mia Marlowe) Winter days just cry out for reading romance. When I’m sitting at home looking out on a day of fog, snow, or icy rain, for me there’s no greater treat than settling in with a fiery romance. When I picked up Erinsong, it was about noon and so gray it looked l ...
