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 ...

By Royal Command

If you love Medievals, definitely check out By Royal Command. Set in Anglo-Saxon England, a very colorful and under-utilized time period, this novel caught my interest from the dark and moody beginning and held it to the very end. It wasn't perfect, but it was quite good. As the novel opens, we i ...

The Norse King's Daughter

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 seventh pa ...

Dream of Me

Narrated by Josephine Bailey Dream of Me was the first true romance I read and therefore holds a special place in my list of romance favorites. I was enthused to discover it in audio format but after listening to Josephine Bailey’s excellent performance, I was absolutely enthralled. Now a comfo ...

Viking in Love

Sandra Hill may have changed publishers, but one thing certainly hasn’t altered: When you open a book by the author, you know exactly what you’re going to get.  Her books are broad, ribald jokes. And completely and totally over the top in every way possible. This one sticks entirely to the a ...

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 peopl ...

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 ...

Untamed

Untamed continues Helen Kirkman's Warriors of the Dragon Banner series. These men serve King Alfred, King of Wessex and the lone English kingdom to hold out against the Viking invasions. Untamed explores issues of family estrangements, loyalties and what binds us to another person. Kirkman also adds ...

Rough and Ready

Sandra Hill’s time traveling Vikings are back for another trip. Rough and Ready has a lot of farcial episodes and plenty of ultra-hot sex, but it lacks the touch of poignancy that made the early books in this series something special. Torolf Magnusson, son of Magnus, the Very Virile Viking, ...

Fearless

Although Fearless is my first Helen Kirkman book, I have given her other books serious consideration in the past because of their outstanding covers vividly portraying Dark Age male virility. Now I am wondering what I may have missed by sticking to my rule of never buying a book based solely on its ...
